Introducing: The Little Wedding Extras Blog

It’s a wonderful world, wedding planning. You spend this season of your life choosing the way to represent your love by embracing traditions or starting new ones. While you and your partner craft the big picture for your big day, little details pop up everywhere as opportunities to celebrate your unique story. For many couples, a heavy dose of DIY is the perfect way to personalize their wedding and save money while doing so. Nothing tops the feeling of saying “I do,” but the feeling of pride and satisfaction from looking across your venue and knowing you made this and you made this happen will stick with you long after the reception ends. Some of those projects will feel like second nature while some will feel a little daunting.

That’s where we come in.

Do It Yourself doesn’t have to mean doing it alone. Little Wedding Extras is here to give you the extra boost of confidence and know-how to take your wedding day vision and create a budget-conscious success. We want to save you time, money, stress and confusion so you can focus on what’s really important: your love and your future.

How do we do that? However we need to! Choosing Little Wedding Extras is like choosing your own wedding planning adventure. Maybe you just need a little guidance and someone to make sure your day runs smoothly. Christen is here with years of wedding experience to make sure you’re asking the right questions to have everything in place, whether it's confirming you're on the same page as your vendors or figuring out a timeline for your day-of for a seamless celebration. She can be there with you on your wedding day to take charge of vendors, answer questions for your family members and otherwise make sure you’re spending your day in well-deserved bliss (Warning: She'll firmly suggest you drink lots of water and give up your cell phone).

 If you want something beautiful without dumping all of your dollars into it, Shannon can unlock your Pinterest potential so every little detail is picture ready. From finding the supplies you need to save you money to helping assemble each piece (or just taking the reins if that’s what you need) to arranging your budget blooms, her penchant for pretty will serve your vision.

While you’re dreaming up visions for your perfect day, we’ll be here every week with inspiration to get you there. We’ll have DIY projects, color inspiration and a helping of we’ve-been-there advice to help you sort through the loads of information you’re about to encounter. Since we’re here for you, let us know what you need! We’re always looking to provide the information and inspiration you want to make your day extra special.
