Celebrating NYE

Spencer Special Events - Tuesday, December 31, 2013

It appears that there are two ends of the spectrum when it comes to celebrating New Years Eve. Those that go all out, get fancy, and dance on the tables with their bubbly.  And then there are those that prefer a quiet night at home, cuddled under a blanket, watching the ball drop. We can't say there's one right way to celebrate. Certainly in our lifetime, we've done both! From all of us at Spencer Special Events, we hope your New Years Eve sparkles brightly, however you choose to spend it.

There's always such promise on New Years Eve  We know at Spencer Special Events, 2014 is going to be exciting and fun filled.  We look forward to getting to know our brides, grooms and their families better and developing lifelong friendships and connections. We look forward to planning exquisite events and making our clients dreams become a reality. We also look forward to spending time with our vendor friends, and working with all the talented people in our tremendous industry. And of course, we look forward to sharing it all here on our blog, our website, and our social media.

Have a safe and happy New Years Eve!

Holiday Cocktail Soiree

Spencer Special Events - Friday, December 20, 2013

What an exciting time of the year it is!  At Spencer Special Events, we've been fortunate to attend some fun holiday soirees with family, friends and co-workers. We love mingling, sipping a festive cocktail, and wearing our festive attire. Today we have great ideas for hostess gifts and holiday looks for those remaining Christmas parties you are attending this weekend!

You can't go wrong in this hot red dress and gold jewelry accessories from J.Crew, they coordinate with a candy cane martini in your hand perfectly. Add a pop of color with the Louis Vuitton Altair clutch, it's stunning and certainly makes a statement. For hostess gifts, we like these colorful bottles of Dom, and Kate Spade entertaining accessories like a candle, corkscrew and glitter coasters.

We are sure your holidays will be celebrated in style. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from Spencer Special Events!

Wedding Day Shoes

Spencer Special Events - Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Who does not LOVE shopping for shoes? This certainly is a topic near and dear to many girl's hearts and as you prepare your holiday outfits, this may give you some inspiration! We love seeing what our brides pick for their shoes on their wedding day.  Not all photographers like taking fancy shoe shots and might not be top on your shot list, but sometimes ladies, these babies need a shot of their own! Fancy, designer, exceptionally high heels, flats, prints, jewel encrusted, colors, and simple white, we've seen them all. What's your wedding day pick?

We think your shoes should be a fun expression of your style on your wedding day and make you feel fancy. Just make sure they are comfortable! Or if they aren't comfortable, have a plan B -- an alternative pair of shoes. A pair of flip flops or some darling flats are great ideas for later in the evening when you are dancing the night away. And I mean, really? Who doesn't LOVE buying 2 pairs of great shoes that you will wear for years to come?

So what's your wedding day shoe style? We want to know!

Lovely Bouquets

Spencer Special Events - Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Oh, boy! Do we swoon for our bride's bouquets. They represent your overall wedding style. Not to mention the first floral arrangement you will see on your wedding day when it is delivered to your bridal suite.

From the formality (or whimsical nature of the bouquet) to the color scheme, what you choose for your flowers makes a statement and is an iconic part of your wedding! Today we are taking a look back on colors, varieties, and styles of some of our Spencer Special Events bride's bouquets. There's plenty of floral inspiration in this post!

So if you are looking for an all white floral arrangement, white with greens, a pop of blue or purple, a vibrant mix, or all one color, you'll see the possibilities are endless. Choosing a florist that can execute your vision is something Spencer Special Events loves to do! We work with the area's most talented floral designers to create something unique for you.
