Orlando Wedding Studio

The goal of Orlando Wedding Studio has always been to unite quality vendors with their clients. (brides, grooms, hosts) We started renting the conference room to our vendors and brides to hold their meetings. So far, it has been a huge hit! We wanted to open up the space for their clients to hold intimate gatherings, but we knew that that we needed to do a bit of work!

I am so happy to share our new space with you all! It took a lot of work but I am so happy with the final outcome! (Pro pics coming soon!)

We wanted a lighter and brighter feel to the studio. So, we repainted the walls with a fresh coat of white paint, opened up the main area, added new lighting, and installed new wood floors! We would love to show you around! Please contact us for an appointment or to book, info@prettypeacockpaperie.com or call/text 813-446-7910.

Starting rates for intimate gatherings (approximately 30 people) : $35.00 per hour

Conference room rental for meetings or consultations: $10.00 an hour

Our studio is perfect for:

– Bridal Parties

– Baby showers

– Launch Parties

FREE Wedding Stationery Checklist

Planning your wedding can be really hard work! But not when you can stay super organized! SO, I have created a little freebie for all of my Pretty Peacocks! I also want my brides to be extremely educated and informed when they march into their stationery meetings. Keep in mind that your budget (usually 4-6% of your total budget) has to include all of these items. Many brides think they have X amount of dollars to spend on their invitations and then realize that they actually have to also include day-of and post-day-of stationery in that total! This can significantly change a budget. SO, take a moment decide what is important, what is not and base your purchases on what you think makes the most sense FOR YOU!

You can get the image from this post or, you can always email us: info@prettypeacockpaperie.com for the actual file!

Now, off you go into the beautiful world of paper!

Be Thankful for a Wonderful Life!

Every once in a while, life throws us a curve ball. During these tough times, we must remain vigilant in our trust in God. We must stay appreciative for all that we have and for the amazing life that we live.

Having a sick relative really teaches you a lot about life. It teaches you to be appreciative of everything: breathing on your own, mobility, independence, being in the mental state to do any of those things. I currently have a sick relative and have learned so much about life in the past week.

Be thankful for everything, every gulp of air, every heart beat, every tear, every sound, every step. Just be thankful. I know this post is not wedding related but I wanted all of my readers to read this. When you are appreciative good things happen and continue to happen. So stay positive, be appreciative always and Be Thankful for a Wonderful Life! 

XOXO

3 Reasons Hiring a Pro is Worth it!

DIYing is a trend that will never go away. Etsy, Martha and Pinterest will always be there to help you along the way and guide you to DIY euphoria. However, in many cases hiring a pro is worth it. Here are some points to consider before you go the DIY route.

If your car needs an oil change would you  attempt to DIY at home even if you have no idea? OR, would you take it to a reliable mechanic who has experience doing oil changes for many years? For those of us who do not know how to it is best to hire the professional. This same concept can be applied when planning an event. A person who knows what they are doing can keep you on track both budget wise and design wise. This professional will help you save money, time and most of all stress!

Professionals can also save you money by doing it right the first time. Imagine getting enough supplies for 100 guests. You have your wedding party help with the execution. Half way through, you realize there have been many mess ups and things are not executed to the superior quality you envisioned. (Apparently liquor and wedding parties don’t mix well when trying to accomplish something!)These, mess ups will affect your bottom line, also known as your budget. Hiring a pro will take away the stress of dealing with this and save you money by getting it right the first time.

Wedding and Event professionals are stocked with items that they use often. For example, as a custom stationer, I buy a lot of adhesive. I buy bulk and online to keep my costs down. This is something that I know I will use with every order, so I keep a stock of it. If a bride wanted to DIY her invites, she would first have to invest in the dispenser ($40) and the glue ($7). That means she has already spent $47 on the glue alone! Not to mention a paper cutter, the actual paper, a design template, and your time to assemble each invite. In many cases, that can add up quickly and going the professional route can actually save you money.

Finally if you do go with the right pro they volunteer copious amounts of information to you…for FREE! This is definitely a perk but also allows you insider information that could be vital to your perfect day. As an Orlando wedding planner and a custom stationer, I have to keep up on current trends, find affordable ways to recreate these trends and then pass this on to my brides and hosts. This is a benefit that my clients get because of their association to me. Your team of vendors should provide you with the same perks.

Ultimately, I know that many DIY 1. For the fun of it, 2. They believe they can do a better job and don’t want to pay someone to do what they can do better (this was me!), 3. Or because of budget reasons. I know everyone’s reasoning is different but consider all of your options when hiring professionals. I agree that some things can be DIYed. If your mom designs floral arrangements, then yes DIY the flowers. OR if your sister is a graphic designer, DIY the invites! Be wise about the projects you decide to take on. Take care and choose wisely! I hope this helps!

Etsy Friday Find: Georgeous Garlands from La Petite Fest

Okay, so right now I am in love with banners and garlands. I think they are great! They are versatile and frankly they are an inexpensive way to dress up a space. I recently found these garlands at the Etsy shop La Petite Fest. These garlands would be perfect for your relaxed Orlando, Florida wedding. Picture these paper garlands as a ceremony backdrop (on a non-windy day) or even as a focal point behind major tables at the reception. Think about behind a sweetheart table, a cake table, or gift table. These garlands can even decorate the front of a table. I love that these garlands are so glam and can double as home décor and party décor. If you know me you know that I am in love with the glitter banners but I am also very excited about the multi-colored circle garland! Get creative guys and find an excuse to buy one of these darling banners from La Petite Fest Shop! You can find more info and pricing here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LePetiteFest
