Pros and Cons to Hiring a Full-Service Wedding Event Company

If you’re planning a large and extravagant wedding, chances are you’re probably looking into hiring a DJ, Photographer, and other vendors. Of course, you’ll want to provide your guests with an unforgettable experience — and what better way to do so with a full-service wedding event company? 

Though you may get services such as a DJ, a photo booth, and photography, you should still be wary of your choices. Here are the pros and cons to hiring a full-service wedding event company rather than multiple individual vendors.

Pro: A Full-Service Wedding Event Company Can Save You Money

Hiring a full-service wedding event company has several advantages — one being that it can save you money. These companies are cost-efficient in the fact that, instead of outsourcing work to each individual vendor (including photographers, DJs, and caterers), a full-service company provides all of these services for one flat price.

If you opt for individual vendors, those prices will quickly rack up by the end of your wedding expenditures. Plus, aside from its cost, managing individual vendors can be quite the headache — especially when there’s so much to worry about for your big day.

Pro: It Can Save You Time

On top of the headache it provides, hiring individual vendors can also be a huge time waster. To break it down, consider the amount of time doing your due diligence will take. From research to contact to trial period to payment, doing so for each vendor could swallow up a huge chunk of planning time. Add that with around 3 to 4 vendors and you’re looking at hours upon hours of wasted time.

With a full-service wedding event company, all of these spectacular wedding services are housed under one umbrella. In turn, you won’t be spending as much time researching, contacting, and offering trial runs to one person each.

Con: You Can Potentially Sacrifice Quality

As is with most services, with the pros come the cons. With a full-service wedding event company, you do run the risk of sacrificing quality when it comes to each service provider. For example, you may love a company’s photographer and the work they do, but their photobooth may be faulty and can potentially spoil part of your wedding.

Consider having a phenomenal DJ as part of the package, but the photographer’s work is not up-to-par. Generally, you get what you pay for, so if you choose to go with a less expensive full-service wedding company, keep in mind that some of the vendors could possibly not meet your standards and expectations.

In hiring individual vendors, you have full autonomy to choose providers that are up to your standards — with the trade-off being your time expended.

Con: A Full-Service Wedding Event Company May Not Be Flexible

When hiring a full-service wedding event company, another con you have to be aware of is lack of flexibility. Consider this situation: your wedding runs longer than usual and you need a DJ to keep playing music and keep the energy up. What happens if the DJ can’t stay late?

No matter how much money you offer, it still may not sway them into sticking around for the rest of the night. And what happens if the photographer has to leave at a certain time? Where will those precious late-night memories of your wedding go?

These are just some of the circumstances to consider when hiring a full-service wedding event company. You never know how your wedding will pan out, so having that flexibility is key for your vendors!

BLOGS Tips for Choosing a Wedding Photographer

Tips for Choosing a Wedding Photographer

Planning for a wedding is no easy task, especially when you have so many moving parts to take account for. Whether it’s remembering to invite everyone you know or coordinating with an event planner, wedding planning can certainly be difficult. Luckily, choosing a wedding photographer doesn’t have to be. 

In this blog, we’ll take a look at some of the tips and tricks you can utilize to score the best wedding photographer possible.  Here’s how!

Check Their Portfolio

Before choosing a wedding photographer, the first thing you’ll want to do is check out a prospective hire’s portfolio. Here, you should take into account what exactly you want out of a wedding photographer.

Analyze their photo style. Take a look at elements such as angling, lighting, staging. Other elements to be aware of include form, shape, size, color, line, depth, and texture. Understanding these elements and how they can really make your wedding photos pop and stand out can be really useful.

You’ll also want to ask yourself: what kind of lighting are they using? Do the photos look professionally taken? Are they using high-quality cameras? It’s also good practice to check their background for reviews that highlight a potential hire’s strengths and weaknesses.

Understanding Your Wedding’s Needs

Are you planning on having a huge wedding or a small one? Does it call for an elaborate photo and stage setup, or are you opting for something simple? Being honest with your wedding needs will help you in choosing a wedding photographer. In fact, depending on the size of your wedding, you may even need a full team of photographers. 

Also, your guests should be in mind when choosing a wedding photographer. As they may want to see the pictures and receive Thank You’s afterward, ask yourself how you would like your photos delivered. Would you prefer physical or digital copies? Glossy images or matte? Would you like them framed? And since we live in the social media age — what are the best means of delivering these photos to your guests online? Consider turnaround time as well!

It is also important to make sure you and your photographer are on the same page about time. Having your photographer leave hours before the end of the wedding is a situation absolutely no one wants to be in. Make sure you are in constant communication with your photographer to make sure they’ll be able to stay for the majority of the event. Leaving an hour before the end is generally acceptable.

Offer a Trial Run Before Choosing a Wedding Photographer

When choosing a wedding photographer, you’ll want to weigh your options. One way you can go about such is by offering a trial run.

Once you settle on a photographer that may fulfill your needs, use this time to offer a trial run. A good time for a trial run would be your engagement photos — as you can test out a photographer’s (or studio’s) capabilities, see what services they offer, and how their customer service is.

Don’t Focus on Price

Lastly, don’t focus on price when choosing a wedding photographer. It may seem like an obvious choice to actually focus on price, but good quality photography and service is subjective and cannot be labeled.

If you want to shell out money for a huge photo studio, you still run the risk of receiving phoned-in photographs and/or shoddy service. Furthermore, a cheaper photographer may not be up to par when it comes to your standards — be it through their equipment, experience, or even customer service.

Let quality be the deciding factor in your wedding photography endeavors!

BLOGS 4 Tips for Holding an Outdoor Wedding This Summer

4 Tips for Holding an Outdoor Wedding This Summer

As the summer shifts into full gear, many are looking to host an outdoor wedding — and who can blame them?! With beautiful weather, a wonderful atmosphere, and music curated to the audience’s needs, there are many factors to consider when holding an outdoor wedding this summer.

Good Practices for Holding an Outdoor Wedding

So you’re planning an outdoor wedding? Great! It’s a beautiful time to tie the knot, but as is with all wedding planning, you’ll need to stay on top of all the moving parts when planning an outdoor wedding. From maintaining optimal comfort for your guests to monitoring the weather, being prepared for potential pitfalls during your wedding. Furthermore, coordinating with your guests during the summer months — a time where most people go on vacation — is imperative.

Here’s what you need to know when holding an outdoor wedding this summer.

Check the Weather

This is most certainly a no-brainer, but checking the weather ahead of time will allow for key preparation before holding your outdoor wedding. When selecting a date, consider using a reliable weather outlet like or and look at historical data of that day’s weather. Has it been characteristically rainy that day? Does it get sweltering hot? What about the humidity? This will allow you to make well-informed decisions when selecting the day of the wedding.

Beyond the historical data, you’ll obviously want to keep an eye on the upcoming weather as well. offers a monthly look at the weather, so you can keep tabs on any potential weather changes as your big day approaches.

It’s also a good idea to avoid the hottest part of the day. As the sun is generally the highest around 3 p.m., consider holding your event in the later part of the afternoon/early evening.

Provide Ample Shade

On top of checking the weather, you’ll also want to provide ample shade for your guests. It’s summer, so it’ll be warm of course! Coordinate with your wedding venue to ensure that there are amply shaded areas on premises for your guests.

Consider the number of children who will be attending, for example. As many will be running around for the most part, leaving them with some shaded areas will give them an opportunity to cool off from under the hot sun. If there aren’t naturally-shaded areas with trees and other sources, you should probably invest in setting up a tent (and perhaps some fans to go along with them) to shield wedding guests from the hot sun.

Encourage Sunblock Use

When holding an outdoor wedding, encourage guests to use sunblock prior to the ceremony. 

One of the biggest dangers of prolonged sun exposure is the dreaded sunburn. According to the Mayo Clinic, too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun “increases the risk of other skin damage, such as dark spots, rough spots, and dry or wrinkled skin.” Furthermore, symptoms include “Changes in skin tone, such as pinkness or redness,” “Pain and tenderness,” and in severe cases, “Headache, fever, nausea and fatigue.”

The American Cancer Society (ACS) advises that people should use “broad spectrum” sunscreen that protects not only against Ultraviolet A (UVA), but also Ultraviolet B (UVB) rays. The Skin Cancer Foundation notes that UVA and UVB rays have been, respectively, tied to skin aging and skin burning. Avoid this by choosing the appropriately labeled sunscreen.

You’ll also want to consider the Sun Protection Factor (SPF). While no sunscreen completely protects your skin from all UV rays, choosing a sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher is highly recommended. The ACS says that “SPF 15 sunscreens filter out about 93% of UVB rays, while SPF 30 sunscreens filter out about 97%, SPF 50 sunscreens about 98%, and SPF 100 about 99%.”

Carefully Choose the Wedding Catering

When holding an outdoor wedding, you’ll need to be mindful of the catering. With the sun’s heat, you’ll want to have refreshing foods for your guests. Think fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, and lighter meals. Avoid foods that don’t mix well with the weather, like hot soups and foods that are overly spicy. You’ll probably want to cut back on the steaks and red meat (depending on how thickly cut), too, as it can leave guests feeling sluggish throughout the day.

There’s also nothing wrong with opting for grilled foods. You can opt for more wedding-appropriate foods than the traditional burger and hot dog combo like grilled fish, thin-cut beef tenderloin, and more. You can also get really creative with kebabs!

Holding an Outdoor Wedding with Everlasting Productions

Once you have the venue and catering set for your outdoor wedding, you’ll have to consider the sounds of course! In fact, a good DJ can either make or break your event. Don’t settle for less.

With Everlasting Productions, we bring a team of experienced professionals who will keep the energy flowing throughout the night and make your outdoor wedding an experience you’ll never forget. To learn more, please visit our website and get in touch with us today!

BLOGS Battling the Heat During Your Summer Wedding

Battling the Heat During Your Summer Wedding

When we think about a summer wedding, absolute beauty comes to mind. From lush outdoor venues to the beautiful summer hues of coral, green, and pale pink, summer weddings offer elegant seasonal possibilities that will make your special day that much more incredible. 

Another thing that comes to mind with a summertime weddings? The heat.

Are you planning a wedding this summer? If so, you’ve got an important task ahead of you—ensuring you and your guests battle the heat and stay cool throughout the duration of the ceremony, the reception, and well into the remainder of your beautiful (as opposed to blistering) special day.

Provide Ample Shelter and Shade

One of the simplest ways to ensure your guests stay out of the heat of the sun is to ensure ample shelter and shade throughout the venue. If you’re planning an outdoor summer wedding, consider small pop-up tents with lounge seating or umbrellas available beneath the sun-blocking fabric.

Get Strategic with Element Placement

If you’re still in the earlier stages of planning your summer wedding, now is the perfect time to narrow down your venue options. Choose an outdoor location with plenty of mingling spaces for your guests, being sure to incorporate beautiful elements that are also practical in shielding guests from the heat. Consider investing in portable A/C units for added comfort! 

Marrying Practicality and Personality

One of the most iconic summer wedding staples is that of the personalized hand fan. With customized embroidered hand fans to keep as a keepsake, your guests will hold the memories they made during your special day for years to come.

Add a Delicious Shock of Cold 

Keep your guests cool by incorporating frozen components into your dessert selection! Guests will appreciate the refreshing shock of cold favorites such as summer themed gelato or granita. Attendees with sweet teeth will thank you for these icy additions! 

Keep the Refreshments Flowing

Never underestimate the power of refreshments to appease a warm and sweaty crowd. Icy drinks are an easy yet effective way to cool down your guests for the duration of your summer wedding ceremony.

BLOGS The Rise of the Minimony and the Micro-Wedding

The Rise of the Minimony and the Micro-Wedding

The Rise of the Minimony and the Postpone Micro-Wedding

By Anna Russell

Planning a postpone wedding is a faff at the best of times; during a pandemic, it resembles purgatory. You’ve booked the venue, the flowers, the dance floor, and the d.j., only to be told that the venue will not open this year, the florist is out of business, and dancing is illegal. You rebook at a smaller venue—someone’s back yard, maybe—pick your own flowers (“Farmhouse chic!”), and install, at key entry points, hand-sanitizing stations with tasteful signs (“Spread love, not germs”), only to learn that a quarantine has been imposed on out-of-state visitors. Your parents and siblings will no longer be able to attend. They are upset; you will need to postpone. And so it goes.

For a year and a half, my partner and I had been planning a wedding in Crete, where he grew up. We were already legally married—town-hall ceremony—but we wanted the big shebang: the long train, the complicated seating plan, loved ones from all over the world spilling wine as they danced the sirtaki. We chose a date in June and then watched anxiously as the virus spread through January, and then February. Some time into my own pandemic-wedding purgatory, I began having dreams about my dress fitting in strange and otherworldly ways. The sleeves would inexplicably droop to the floor at the elbows, cartoon-like, or extend past my hands and behind me, like white lines on a highway. One day, in late March, after a relentlessly upbeat weekend at home—quarantinis! CrossFit by Zoom!—I sat down to postpone our wedding. I knew how to write the e-mail because I had already received several, from friends in the same boat. They were always warm, and gracious, and not too self-pitying; “What’s a wedding in all this?” they seemed to say. After I sent the note, I received a flurry of messages of relief and consolation. One friend, who had moved her own wedding twice, wrote simply, “Coronavirus is an asshole.”

All through the spring and summer—which is to say, all through wedding season—the virus wreaked havoc on the wedding industry. “It was bedlam,” Laura Krueger, of Kleinfeld Hotel Blocks, which helps couples book accommodations for their guests, told me. “There were no protocols in place.” On March 13th, the wedding-planning Web sites the Knot and WeddingWire set up an emergency hotline for panicked brides and grooms. “We had hundreds of calls per day for two months following that,” Jeffra Trumpower, at WeddingWire, told me recently. As lockdowns and travel restrictions came into force around the country, “couples started to call and say, ‘What do I do? I’m supposed to get married next weekend.’”

At first, people postponed, thinking the pandemic couldn’t last longer than a few weeks. Then they postponed again. “There were stages where it didn’t seem like people fully understood the scope or magnitude,” Andrea Freeman, an event planner in New York, told me. Slowly, two options, both of them buzzkills, emerged: you could postpone indefinitely or hold the wedding right away, with the appropriate safety guidelines in place (festive!). “The conversations I was having with my clients were very much about, ‘What is the focus, really? Why are you really having a wedding?’ ” If the goal was to throw a big party, that wasn’t going to happen. (Although, last month, New York City’s sheriff tweeted about breaking up an indoor wedding of nearly three hundred, in Queens.) “But if the focus was really to be married, to share that with the most important people in their lives—if they were saying stuff like that to me, then we started a conversation about, O.K., here’s what that could look like in this time.”

The wedding industry, floundering through waves of postponements, has developed a suite of options—and a vocabulary—for couples wanting to still splash out on their nuptials, global crisis notwithstanding. There’s now the “micro-wedding,” a small ceremony with fifty guests or fewer. You are encouraged to follow this up with a “sequel wedding,” a larger reception, at a later date. But when even fifty guests seems optimistic (or, depending on your location, illegal), there’s a smaller option, touted enthusiastically by the industry, available: the “minimony.” A minimony might have ten guests: parents, siblings, an officiant standing at a distance. It has all the components of a normal wedding—ceremony, reception, three-tiered cake—shrunk to pandemic proportions.

This is a significant shift. In a survey conducted by Zola, the wedding-planning and registry company, of more than two thousand engaged couples planning their wedding during the pandemic, half were planning a minimony. “Smaller guest lists are definitely a trend we see into the future for some time,” Emily Forrest, Zola’s director of communications, told me. In another survey, by the Knot and WeddingWire, of six hundred and eighty-four couples in the U.S. with weddings between September and January, fifty-eight per cent planned to keep their original date, with many opting for a pared-down guest list, and just seven per cent were pulling the plug altogether. “People are not cancelling,” Trumpower said.

All that rejiggering can take a toll on the bride- and groom-to-be, Freeman, the planner, told me: “People are starting to get fatigued, and they’re going through different phases of excitement and enthusiasm, and then resignation and upset.” I recognized the symptoms. She offers her clients guided meditations and advises them to stay present. “At a certain point in time, you can’t talk about the flowers and the music anymore, or the flavor of the cake,” she said. “It’s about so much more than that. How we get through this is how we handle anything in life.”

Six months after we sent our first wedding postponement e-mail, we had another decision to make. Pandemic-wise, nothing had changed. There was still no vaccine, and cases were rising. Should we postpone again? Cancel altogether? Slash our guest list? I scrolled past images of a socially distanced wedding in which the couple had used giant Teddy bears to separate guests. Where did they get the bears? I wondered. At a certain point, I came across a podcast called “Corona Brides,” in which the host, Jordie Shepherd, a coronavirus bride herself, interviews women (and sometimes couples) navigating the wedding-planning process during the pandemic.

Shepherd launched “Corona Brides” in April, around the same time she decided to postpone her own wedding, which was supposed to take place in May. “The Las Vegas desert was my dream,” she told me. She eventually married closer to her home, in San Antonio, Texas, outdoors, under sprawling oak trees, with an indoor reception in an industrial-chic space filled to half capacity. (“People were able to go inside and sit with their quarantine family,” she said.) But she still has the occasional pang; she told her husband, “Next time we go to Vegas, I’m taking my wedding dress and getting a photo in the desert!” Since starting the podcast, she has interviewed two dozen pandemic brides. Some have postpone their weddings three times; others have married in their back yard or at their original venue, meant for ten times as many guests. Several brides held the ceremony in their kitchen. “It is a roller coaster of emotions,” she said. “You’re almost mourning the loss of a wedding you don’t know if you can have or not.”

Shepherd connected me with Kelli and Omar Brown, who got engaged in November and planned to tie the knot quickly. “I was, like, Six-month engagement, let’s do this!” Kelli, a bridal-hair stylist, told me. They booked a whitewashed photography studio and invited around a hundred guests. But, in late March, Detroit went into lockdown and Omar’s bachelor party in Las Vegas was cancelled. Kelli threw him one at home, with a makeshift bar and slot machines purchased on Amazon. A few weeks later, Kelli’s bachelorette party was cancelled, and Omar surprised her with mimosas and a D.I.Y. nail bar. At that point, Kelli thought, We only have two months left. Still, they decided not to postpone. “We were, like, even if we have to get married in hazmat suits at the courthouse, we’ll get married on that day.”

Kelli had three contingency plans, depending on the state of the pandemic. Wedding A, she told me, “was, like, best-case scenario, a hundred people.” Wedding B would be small and socially distanced, with just family and a few friends. “Plan C was literally my husband and I going to the courthouse.” In the end, Wedding B postpone. They cut their guest list to fewer than twenty and seated households on vintage furniture nine feet apart (“Very cozy, and also very safe”). Omar’s brother, a pastor, drove in from Philadelphia to marry them, and they streamed the ceremony on Zoom. Afterward, they held a drive-through reception. They handed out individually wrapped cupcakes; friends decorated their cars and shot confetti out their windows. One guest texted them to ask, “What car should I wear?” “It was wonderful,” Kelli said.

That evening, they drove to Grand Rapids for a wedding-night getaway. They arrived late, to find a police barricade blocking the road. George Floyd had been killed just five days earlier; a protest had gathered and was being dispersed by officers in protective gear. Then the car filled with a cloud of eye-watering smoke. “My husband was, like, ‘Oh, that’s tear gas,’ ” Kelli recalled. She covered her face with the train of her dress. Omar, who is Black, briefly went outside, and Kelli, who is white, worried for his safety. Eventually, they were allowed to pass and returned home to their family.

Melissa Brown, who founded Sweet Petite Celebrations, which caters to small weddings, in May, told me minimonies can feel more intimate than larger weddings. “You can really dig in deep to each guest that’s coming and make them personally feel special,” she said. They don’t necessarily postpone come cheaper than larger weddings, though; Brown told me her minimony clients spend, on average, between ten thousand and thirty thousand dollars. One couple sent their loved ones a survey asking them to name their favorite dessert and then served each selection in individual portions. “Very Marie Antoinette,” Brown said. “Very let them eat cake.” Food takes center stage out of necessity, she added. “You’re sitting at a table having a beautiful, upscale dinner party,” she said. “You can’t get up, you can’t mingle, you can’t dance.”

The Pandemic Wedding Redefines What’s Beautiful

The Pandemic Wedding Redefines What’s Beautiful

By Brittany Chaffee

Source: Wit and Delight

The weddings of our past glorified closeness; intimacy in large numbers. They valued sharing cake and side hugging cousins after six tap beers in the early twilight hour of 6:00 p.m. Weddings have always been an expensive reminder that we can celebrate with the ones we’ve loved for life and fuse families together with sparklers, champagne flutes, and silverware tapping on china. They are the embodiment of extravagant gestures and travel. Weddings of yesteryear taught us how to be monumental, practiced, and traditional.

These are the weddings of our past because, of course, a pandemic came into play.

Before writing this, I stared at a blinking cursor for a long time. Planning a wedding, and writing about it, feels insensitive in this new world. I recognize the deep privilege I have to be readily able to plan a wedding during a pandemic. My life hasn’t changed too dramatically since March, when this all started shifting the narrative. I’m a writer, so I was able to freelance and make do after I lost my corporate job. My fiancé is in finance, a job not affected by the blow of this change. Our wedding, scheduled for late September, has experienced a facelift, but I don’t want this post to be about how we’re complaining about the changes we’ve had to make. We’re lucky. The present of our lives could certainly, certainly be heavier. Our experiences are different, and through all of it, I have this undeniable craving to document every minute of the struggle because I have to find out what I don’t want to know, especially as it pertains to the “seemingly selfish” desire to celebrate love in a world that is hurting. Weddings are still happening. Discussions with family are heavy and tough. Expectations are high and low. Fear is imminent. And we’re all experiencing the new.

Our experiences are different, and through all of it, I have this undeniable craving to document every minute of the struggle because I have to find out what I don’t want to know, especially as it pertains to the “seemingly selfish” desire to celebrate love in a world that is hurting.

Marriage has slowly become a more unlikely and unequal institution, due to the pandemic itself and unemployment and eviction and the general desire for couples to have a more intimate celebration. I mean, weddings are expensive. Oftentimes they’re more than a down payment on a home—and most certainly a decision that feels sporadic and moderately forced, depending on expectations from family. For Jake and I, we both decided we’d invest a little money in the celebration and make a bash out of it. We set a long engagement to save the money, stuck to it, and set the date almost three years out.

Then, life happened. And no one knows how to plan a wedding in a pandemic. First of all, CDC guidelines to have a wedding are loose and confusing. Vendors are adding “pandemic” clauses in contracts. Venues in some locations are allowed to host up to 150 people, while states are recommending gatherings of only up to 20.  Recently, I saw a wedding invite that separated their invites into three groups: Group A, Group B, and Group C—and whoever RSVP’d first would get the invite, Group A getting first dibs and so on. I’ve heard horror stories about vendor cancellations. On the other side of the spectrum, I’ve heard beautiful stories about couples hiking up mountains and eloping in boots and high altitudes. Couples have given back to their communities and filmed uplifting, heartfelt videos for family and friends. I think perhaps the lesson here is this: Weddings are still managing to be epic, gorgeous chaos-sandwiches. The new world has simply changed how they’re dealt to us.

Our wedding has been just that. A delightful chaos-sandwich. We sent out our Save the Dates last year, when days were nothing but another 24-hour bundle that ended in “y.” When we decided in June that we were going to have a small, safer version of the wedding, we had to send out 100 letters to the people we couldn’t invite explaining our reasoning. Everyone was incredibly understanding. It was heartbreaking to tell close friends we’d be celebrating with them virtually instead, but at the end of the day, safety was our top priority. Selfishness couldn’t steer the ship for us.
