Amy & Parker 10.19.18 | Fun Fall Wedding | BRIK Venue | Fort Worth, TX

A little bit of rain didn’t put a damper on Amy and Parker’s fall wedding!  From the personal touches of old family wedding photos to the cardboard cowboy cutouts with the bride and groom’s faces, everyone had a great time celebrating the new Mr. and Mrs. Allie!

 

The ceremony mantle was the perfect find by the mother of the groom, and added a unique touch to the space. After the very personal ceremony performed by a family friend, guests dined on amazing food from Mariposa’s Latin Kitchen.  The gorgeous florals and greenery from Cityview Florist added the perfect pop of color to the reception space. And the cakes!  Oh the cakes!  Loft22 Cakes did it again!  The bride’s cake looked stunning with florals from Cityview Florist, while the groom’s cake represented one of the groom’s favorite pastimes – fishing!  Some people weren’t sure if it was a real fish or not!

 

The reception was one for the books!  DJ Rod Baker with DFW Parties got the party started with the new Mr. and Mrs. first dance to “Islands in the Stream” and kept everyone on the dance floor all night!  Glow sticks and glasses were passed out and everyone loved it! Guests also enjoyed the photo booth made by the newlyweds, complete with cowboy cutouts with the bride and groom’s faces AND their own logo as the backdrop, created by the groom!  And as fitting as their first dance song was, their private last song was from none other than local Fort Worth favorite Leon Bridges “Coming Home” – a perfect end to the most magical night.

 

And on this perfect fall night, as the rain subsided, the new Mr. and Mrs. Allie left as husband and wife under a downpour of biodegradable confetti, surrounded by friends and family.  And they drove off into married life in a white 1973 Cadillac Convertible El Dorado from Romantic Rememberances.

 

All of the moments above were captured on camera by the talented Mr. and Mrs. Archer Photo and Film!  Check out her work below!

Alternatives to Saturday weddings | BRIK Question of the Month

Friday wedding, Sunday wedding, BRIK wedding, Brik Venue, ivy wall, graffiti wall, ceremony, reception

 

 

 

Getting married on a Saturday might be traditional, but Saturdays aren’t your only choice!  More and more couples are choosing to get married on a Friday or Sunday, and the celebration is just as fun.  Of course, this change in day means you’ll have to get a little creative and think outside the box, but it’s completely worth it.

 

AVAILABILITY

 

So you’ve found the venue of your dreams, but every single Saturday is booked for the next year!  Ask about their Friday or Sunday availability. Moving your focus from a Saturday to a Friday or Sunday will open up so many more dates to choose from, and you’ll be able to have your dream venue AND more than likely at a discounted price! More and more couples are choosing this option, and dates are filling up fast!

PRICE

 

Saturday weddings are popular, and come at a premium price, but choosing a Friday or Sunday option typically comes with a discounted price for all the same amenities. Choosing this option will free up some money in the budget to spend on other things, such as floral, photography, videography, photo booth, etc.  At BRIK, it is about 20% less than booking on a Saturday, which helps with the budget! We’ve had several BRIK couples choose a Friday or Sunday option – check out the photos in this post!

VENDORS

 

Since weddings typically book on Saturdays, your favorite vendors might also be booked for those Saturdays, which leaves you searching for alternatives to what you wanted.  By having your wedding on a Friday or Sunday, you have a greater chance to book your preferred vendors for your big day. There will be a higher number of vendors available for a Friday or Sunday wedding, and sometimes at a cheaper rate. And after talking with several vendors, they love Friday and Sunday weddings as much as we do! Reach out to them and see what they can do for you! You will be pleasantly surprised!

GUESTS

 

Don’t assume your guests won’t come if your wedding is on a Friday or Sunday!  By having your wedding on a Friday, you can extend the celebrations all weekend with your friends and family. The rehearsal dinner could be on Thursday night, and you could host a friends and family brunch that Saturday morning after the wedding and enjoy spending time with them before you leave for your honeymoon.  And don’t worry that your guest count might be low – often guests coming in from out of town will be there by Friday anyway, and your local guests will come after work on Friday. Just be sure to start the festivities a little later in the evening so all your guests can celebrate with you.

 

By having a Sunday wedding, it gives you the weekend to hang out with your friends and family before your big day.  You will get the whole weekend to celebrate you and the love of your life with all the people you love! You’ll get to spend more time with your family and any guests that came from out of town.  A Sunday wedding is also a good time to rethink the traditional evening ceremony. The rehearsal dinner could be on Saturday night, and most of your out of town guests could attend. You could have a mid-morning wedding with a brunch reception, and your guests could still make it home for work the next day.

So as you start planning and looking at venues and vendors, consider a Friday or Sunday option – the day will still be gorgeous, the guests will still come celebrate, and in the end – you’ll be MARRIED!
