Ali & Wayne’s Delray Beach Wedding


There is so much to love about being hired to plan and coordinate the wedding of such a fun loving couple like Ali & Wayne. We were delighted by everything from Ali’s love of bright colors, all things sparkles and both her an Wayne’s love for their gorgeous Frenchie, Leila (she made her grand appearance on the wedding cake).

On March 20th 2016, 64 of Ali and Wayne’s closest friends and family gathered to share in this special day. The couple chose to have a fun beach brunch wedding, complete with french toast and eggs benedict at the Delray Sands Resort, in Highlands Beach, Florida.

Getting to know this Ali & Wayne was an absolute pleasure and then being amongst all the love of their family made for a perfect day that even Mother Nature and her rain couldn’t outshine!

Their Wedding Colors: Coral, Lime Green and Navy

5 Basic Wedding Tips

Plan for a Perfect Day!

We know you’re not all über rich celebrities but there are some very important aspects of this glamorous affaire that many couples fail to prioritize for their special day! If you take notice, the all around best weddings are when the couple’s focus is on fun with their family & friends… Not whether their cake pops are showcased in their intended location.

So here goes:

  1. We hope it’s obvious that you’re going to marry your best friend. Once you’ve got that part, you’re 90% of the way to your dream wedding!
  2. Invite the people you love the most, sometimes family members feel obligated to invite people that they think would be offended if they were left off the invite list. Truth is, you’re going to spot those people that are virtual strangers to you and be mildly annoyed at their presence. Don’t give into this type of F.O.M.O. that should not be your burden to bare. Have the best time with the people you want at your wedding! (This will play into the next tip)
  3. Have a budget, understand that you’re probably going to exceed it, but with proper planning you won’t go crazy. (Venue Coordinators don’t count. They represent the venue, not you.)
    1. If you’re highly budget conscious, it’s important that you give yourself time to save and pay for any upfront deposits as they come. (Ask us how we can help you with this)
    2. Include a planner in your budget ASAP, find the right person so when your special day arrives, you don’t have to worry about a thing!
    3. Understand the difference between hiring someone for Full Service Planning vs. Day Of Coordination. This directly plays into the level of involvement you will likely have on your wedding day in real time and having everything turn out the way you envisioned.
    4. As planners we can help you keep everything under control and help deliver the day of your dreams! AND you can relax and enjoy it in the moment!
  4. It’s okay to do your day, your way. But the food and drink better be good! Too many weddings have fantastic spreads for the cocktail hour followed by flavorless seated meals that may as well prepared by the “chef” at your local hospital. Part of your enjoyment on that day is going to be reliant on the enjoyment of your guests. If your guests scared of facing the aftermath of cheap wine and liquor they will either refrain from enjoying the liquid libations or create the final memories of your wedding with their head in the toilet bowl. (Refer back to #3.)
  5. Get out there and have the time of your life! Just because you aren’t the highest paid actress in Hollywood (see: Sofia Vegara), doesn’t mean you aren’t entitled to get lost in the moment! Let someone else (like us) worry about the details so you can simply show up and begin your happily ever after!
