Reliving your big day from the point of view of your guests is one thing, but seeing it from a bird’s eye view is completely different!

The number one question a bridesmaid or a maid of honor will ask themselves , will ask others, will even spend countless hours asking the internet is, “How can I be there for the bride the most?” Sure, being there in person is always helpful . Showing up for the engagement party and the bridal shower and even the bachelorette party. But when it comes down to it, the number one thing the bride is looking forward to you doing, is being there on her wedding day, being there to keep her calm and to help her shake off some of those nerves like only you know how to do. Want to know how to keep the bride happy, no matter what, on her wedding day? Here’s three tips to help make that happen.
1. Keep her well fed.
Make sure she’s eaten a good breakfast and a hearty lunch. Also make sure she’s well hydrated. Keep a couple of bottles of water around with a straw so she can take occasional sips — without ruining her lipstick.
2. Play some good tunes.
If things are feeling a little stressful or you feel the bride’s energy is slipping a little, bust out a playlist of her favorite songs . Turn the pre-wedding jitters into a pre-wedding dance party.
Depending on the size of the bridal party, the behind-the-scenes of the morning of the wedding can get a bit stuffy and loud. If there’s a lot going on, round up the other bridesmaids and ask everyone to give the bride a little breathing room and a mental break.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret that I learned early on in my career as an event planner—you can control a great number of things, but the weather will never be one of them. I know, I know. This isn’t want you want to hear. No one wants to rent a tent for their wedding. They can be expensive, and daunting to think about, and the sky is just so lovely this time of year. But if you have to rent a wedding tent (and don’t kid yourself: outdoor venue, no backup plan, high chance of rain? You may have to), then you’re going to want to make sure you price that in your “affordable and easy” outdoor venue cost early on, and then keep reading. Because there is actually (surprisingly) kind of a lot you need to know: Continue reading →

Spring, Summer, Fall… each New England season brings its own unique sights, sounds and colors. Being able to see the splendor of a venue at the peak of each season is such a treat, especially the Inns at Mill Falls in Meredith, NH which is right on the picture perfect banks of the beautiful Lake Winnepesauke. Guests are treated to a stunning lake view surrounded by trees as they witness the union of their friends and family under a 46×65Sperry Tent.
