Barefoot on the Beach

Midst the craziness of planning weddings and spending time looking at venues with clients, I absolutely love assisting fellow vendors (and brides) where I can. I offered some ideas and vendor contacts for this beach themed styled shoot that Jaqui Franco from Jaqui Franco Photography did and she so kindly credited me in her styled shoot blog post.

Cherry Tip

When you start planning your wedding I strongly recommend you make three lists (the first three of many).

1. My not negotiables – what must be at your wedding, not negotiable. This can be anything from a a decor item to the kind of venue you select.

2. I really want – this list are the things you really would like to have at your wedding but willing to compromise on how it is presented/the look and such like.

3. I would like to have but it is okay if I do not have it at my wedding.

These three lists will help you when it comes to allocating expenses and keep focus when making difficult decisions on what to include and what to exclude. If the item is a not negotiable item and costs more than you originally budgeted for, it is okay but understand then that you will be taking money away from another item which may fall onto one of the other lists.


Bridal Fair 6-7 August 2016 @ Spier Wine Farm

We had a busy weekend at Spier this weekend with approximately 3 622 people attending the Bridal Fair.

With a lot creative ideas, variety of vendors, fashion shows and wine tasting fun was had by all. Well almost all, there were some grooms-to-be wondering around not quite sure why they were at a bridal fair when there was rugby to watch.

Thank you to all who visited the Two Cherries stand and took the time to enter the competition. CONGRATULATIONS to Mischa Hodgson who was our winner and won the Wild Cherry package.

Thank you to Donato Events who did a fantastic job putting this fair together, your hard work does not go unnoticed.

When looking for a wedding venue, as far as possible try to view it at the same time of year and time of day you plan to have your wedding. That way you will have a good idea of what the weather and light will be doing at the time of your ceremony and photographs.

Planning a wedding on a tight budget? Consider the following ideas to help cut your costs:

  • Have an out of wedding season wedding. The weather may not always be the best but you can pick up venues at a much cheaper rate.
  • Have your wedding on a week day instead of over the weekend.
  • Breakfast/lunch weddings are cheaper than an evening wedding.
  • Consider the number of guests you invite. The less guests, the lower the expense.
  • DIY as much as you can and shop around for the best price.

I always like to remind my engaged couples that are in the throws of planning their wedding to remember the following:

After attending a wedding, there are only three things people talk about…. the food, the service, and what kind of experience they had. In other words, pay attention to the quality/type of food you serving, ensure your venue staff are efficient and that your DJ can read the crowd and keep the dance floor going.

Happy planning and happy friday!
