Henry & Kristine : Something Rustic, Something Blue by TEAM RNE

This Something Rustic & Something Blue style wedding took place at The Walnut Grove in Moorepark, CA. The couple tied the knot in the windblown grass, under a twig arch decorated with blue, blush, and white floral arrangements & draping. The isle was alined with tree stumps embellished with large mason jars filled with variations of pink and white flowers. A candle lighting ceremony (when a bride & groom light unity candles symbolizing the union of two hearts and lives) and a kissed established the two as husband & wife!

As guest left the ceremony and headed to cocktail hour they were presented with a giant Jenga set & other lawn games, Photo Booth, open bar, and great music. The escort cards were written on mini wood slabs on a table filled with pictures of the bride & groom. The reception was decorated with votive candles,lots of lanterns,beautiful centerpieces, a sweet table to die for. Speaking of sweet, the sweet heart table was accompanied by a hanging lantern back drop, rustic chalkboard Mr & Mrs signs, and more beautiful floral arrangements. After sunset the reception was lit with string lights like breathtaking stars in the moon light & the bride, groom, & their guest got rock'n on the dance floor! The night was both grand & fun! Rock N' Events designed this wedding to be rustic & chic.

Proposal Tips by TEAM RNE

A proposal is such a special moment and that you will remember forever. We have created a few tips to make sure that this moment is everything you desire. So keep this post open on your computer so your significant other can see it and get the hint!!! 


1. Talk about it! Make sure you and your significant other are on the same page regarding getting married. The last thing you want is for your proposal to be politely declined. 


2. Ask for permission. Make sure you ask her parents for their blessing before you propose. This is such a huge sign of respect and allows for the parents to know that you truly value their decision. 


3. Be ring ready. Proposing without a ring is not a wise decision. So make sure you enlist the help of her mother and friends on picking out the perfect ring. Remember she will be wearing this for the rest of her life so you want her to be in love with it. (The average ring is a 1.18 carat Princess cut diamond that averages around $3,500-$4,000). 


4. Be romantic & pick a special place! Make sure to go above and beyond for this proposal. Maybe pick the location you two first met, her favorite spot in the park or even take her to a location she loves (Times Square, Griffith Observatory, etc). But don't just leave it at that, add some glitz and glam. Have it at night with twinkling lights, have rose petals on the ground, something to make it special and romantic. 


4. Make it a surprise! Try your hardest to make sure that she has no idea!!! As much as women hate surprises, we love them also. Only enlist a few people who can keep a secret from her to help you with your plans. 


6.  Make sure her nails are done!! This is so important!! Women will want to take pictures and flaunt their ring, but if their nails are not groomed it will take away from the beauty. Ask her best friend or mom to take her to the spa a day or two before the proposal. She will have no idea and just think that she is having a much needed girls day. 


7. Get down on one knee. This may seem so cliche but it is one of those fairytale moments that all women dream about. Also remember to use her full name. It sounds formal and elegant during a proposal. 


8. Use the magic words. Every bride will want to hear "Will you marry me?" So make sure you practice that into your speech. Also, be sure to include all the many reasons you love her and why you want to spend the rest of your life with her. 


9. Get it on camera! This moment is one that she will want to relive over and over. So make sure you have someone secretly videotaping it. A good idea would be to show her the video on your wedding day! She will have no idea that you recorded it and be able to see her reaction. 


If you still need help deciding what to do take a look at these videos for some over the top proposals that took creativity and love.






Will you be my bridesmaid? by TEAM RNE

Picking who will be your bridesmaid is an important decision. These are the girls that will be with you every step of the journey towards your wedding. So you want to make sure you select the perfect group. This is difficult because you don't want to leave anybody out or hurt feelings but you also need to consider what is best for your wedding. You want as little stress as possible- the last thing you want is your bridesmaids arguing the whole time. Here are a few tips on who to select as your bridesmaids. 


1. Take your time and think about who you want in your bridal party. Right after he proposes your might will probably start making a list of who to ask. But make sure you pick the right girls. Remember that you can always ask someone to be in your wedding, but you can not take back that invitation. 


2. More isn't better. The rule of thumb is one bridesmaids per 50 guests. Of course this isn't something you have to follow but merely a guideline to help you. Remember that the more bridesmaids you have the more people you have to have agree on certain things such as dresses, bridal party date and other details. 


3. Family comes first. Be sure to include your sister(s) and sister-in-law. Nothing is worse than a bitter family member. Even if you two don't have the best relationship, this journey will allow you to spend more time together and build that bond. Family always has your back also, they will want whats best for you and make sure that you are happy at the end of the day. 


4. Don't be pressured. Don't ask someone just because they asked you to be in their bridal party.  Also don't be pressured by friends who are hinting that they want to be in the bridal party. If you don't feel that they will help contribute to your bridal party, don't ask them to be in it. This is your wedding process so at the end of the day, you make the decisions. 


5. Think about them as a group. You want your bridal party to mesh will together. Having a lot of different personalities can lead to conflict but you want them to all join forces and ensure that your wedding is successful. You don't need the added stress of two bridesmaids fighting. 


6. Can they handle it? Think about their current life situations. Are they going through a divorce? Can they financially handle it? The best way to figure this out is to simply talk to them as "I'd love for you to be a bridesmaid, but I understand the tough time you're going through now. If you can't do it, I'd love to find something else for you to do in the wedding." 


7. It is an honor but also a responsibility. Your bridesmaids will help you make decisions throughout your wedding planning. It is like a job that requires a lot of attention and commitment. So do you really want to pick the girl that consistently bails on all the plans you make?



Mismatched Bridesmaids Dresses by TEAM RNE

Coordinating bridesmaids dresses is tricky, that's why typically they all wear the same matching gown. But where's the fun in that? Each of your bridesmaids is unique and deserves to wear a dress that will compliment them each individually. Mismatching bridesmaid dresses  is a trendy element that will allow you and your bridesmaids to shine on your big day! Follow these steps to ensure that your mismatching looks clean and coordinated. 

1. Decide what aspect you are going to mismatch. Do you want them all to have separate colors? Do you want them all to have the same color but different style? Or maybe a combination of both. 


2. Select a color scheme. If you are having your bridesmaids wear different colors maybe try an ombre effect. Try to pick shades that are in the same family and can blend well next to each other. 


3. Let your bridesmaids pick out their own dress. They know their bodies best and they know what they look good in. Have a preselected color and material picked out and let them decide what dress would look best on them. 


4. Have a universal statement piece. This will tie everything in together. You can have them wear matching shoes or a matching necklace. This will help them all look like they fit in with the theme of your wedding.
