A Virginia Farm Wedding Filled with DIY Charm

April 21, 2017. Category: diy, inspiration, real wedding, virginia wedding, weddings

 Set in Virginia’s breathtaking farmland this wedding is filled with just the right amount of southern charm, whimsical details and DIY touches! This adorable couple knew exactly what they wanted for their wedding and Panorama Farms was the perfect blank canvas.

This crafty couple worked on many projects during their 17-month engagement here are just a few:

For the ceremony the bride spruced up the grapevine arch and ceremony chairs with various shades of peach and coral fabric that she cut them into strips herself. The result was spectacular! Especially when the wind was blowing.

Along with one of her bridesmaids (who just happened to be have a background in graphic design), the bride created a logo incorporating the barn and the couple’s initials. The logo was used on everything from their invitations to koozies, and all of signage.

The burlap runners on the tables were trimmed with fabric the couple purchased in India.

The couple made the chalkboard sign with a layout of the barn, so the guests could find the restroom or donut truck at any point throughout the night.

So get cooking, drink up and Go Broncos!

The Wedding Website

December 16, 2014. Category: diy, how to

Now that most of your wedding details are set, it’s time to inform your family and friends!

Your first means of communication are save-the-dates. These are crucial for your guests as it will inform them of the date and venue(s) for your wedding. Your guests can then make arrangements ahead of time so they are able to be in attendance on your special day.

Of course, there are more details of the wedding that the guests will need to know. Some of this information will be on the invitations that you will later send out, but many engaged couples have been creating a wedding website as another form of communication.

A couple’s wedding website is a place guests can go to locate any and all information about the wedding or wedding weekend events.

As wedding websites are being used more frequently by couples, it is important to remember the website’s purpose while creating it.

Here are a few DOs and DONTs that will help keep you on track while creating your wedding website:

DO: Add your website’s url to the save-the-dates

DON’T: Populate your website until the save-the-dates are officially sent out

DO: Include the following information – wedding date, venues, directions to venues, hotel information (hotel blocks or suggested nearby hotels), and a link to your wedding registry

DON’T: Include too much extraneous information – i.e. birthdays, fun facts, information on all bridal party members

With that in mind, here are our favorite sites that assist couples in creating their unique and informative wedding website:

Wedding Day Essentials

December 11, 2014. Category: details, diy, how to, inspiration, weddings

In a perfect world, your wedding day would go exactly according to plan. In reality, there is bound to be at least a tiny bump in the road. We find the best way to have a smooth and relaxed wedding day is to be prepared for any minor details that could go wrong.

Here are the items that we consider to be essential to pack for your wedding day:

First Aid: bandaids, aspirin, antacid, eye drops, and tampons

Beauty: hair pins, deodorant, hair spray, concealer, powder, lip gloss/ chap stick/ lip stick, dental floss, and perfume

Oops!: small scissors, tissues, small sewing kit, lint roller, stain remover, safety pins, double sided fashion tape, and krazy glue

Food/ Drink: small mess-free snack (like a granola bar), water, and mints

Bottoms Up!

April 11, 2014. Category: details, diy, inspiration, traditions

While none of the ladies of A. Dominick Events are technically Southern, we enjoy a good Southern tradition every now and then (we are south of the Mason Dixon you know). One of our very favorite superstitions is the time honor tradition of burying the bourbon. Southern folklore states that if you bury a full bottle of bourbon upside down exactly one month before the wedding at the exact spot of the ceremony it will not rain on your wedding day.

Don’t believe us? The last time one of our couples buried a bottle Tropical Storm Andrea hit the day before their tented wedding on the Chesapeake Bay. While we suffered through a soggy rehearsal, the wedding day was crystal clear, not a cloud in the sky.

My favorite part of this tradition? Digging up the bottle and enjoying it with your guests of course!

So all of you outdoor brides, grab your shovel and bottoms up!
