Trivia Thursday | North Carolina Wedding Planner

The tradition of bridesmaids dressing the same as each other and in similar style as the bride comes from the ancient days when it was believed that evil spirits have a more difficult time distinguishing which one is the bride and putting a hex on her.

Mashed Potato Bar Ideas | North Carolina Wedding Planner

I am in love with mashed potato bars! They are delicious, cost effective, adorable and guests love them. Guests love being able to make their own mashed potato creation.

We've featured mashed potato bars at several of our weddings and they are usually the first thing to go. Make sure that you get yours made in advance so you and your hubby get to enjoy them too!

The best part? You actually can keep everyone happy! You don't have to worry about who doesn't like what or who's allergic to what. Everyone gets to pick and choose what they want.

Here is some great mashed potato bar inspiration for you and you can follow us on Pinterest for even more!

The Wedding Party App | North Carolina Wedding Planner

I feel the need to preface this post with this, please do not use this app instead of a professional photographer. While this app is pretty neat and will allow you to get some unique shots, please enlist a professional to take the photos you'll want to have many years later to remember your special day.

The Wedding Party App allows your wedding guests to take photos from your wedding day which are automatically uploaded to the app and organized by the time they were taken. Be sure to check out this awesome app! Your wedding guests will love it and you'll have everyone's snapshots organized in one place.
