Personalizing the Guest Experience

One huge trend for weddings in 2018 is emphasizing the guest experience at your wedding. While guests have always been invited to participate in games for the newlyweds, many people look to have an unforgettable experience at a wedding now.

Here are a couple of ways I thought would be a great way to enhance the guest experience:

A Not-So-Traditional Guest Book
Guestbooks have typically been used to send the newlyweds good wishes for their marriage. Though traditional guestbooks ask for guests to physically write something down with pen and paper, think about changing it up. Have guests take individual Poloroid shots to scrapbook themselves. Or have them record videos to compile later into a larger guest-video.

Food
It's no surprise that food is always a big part of weddings. Change things up from the usual seated dinner with an interactive buffet, like a build-your-own bruschetta or sundae station. Or incorporate some local favorites so that out-of-town guests can appreciate their travel time. You can even make the food Insta-worthy (Coffee in a cone, anyone?).

Mazel Moments



Culinary Envy
Social Media Engagement
Wedding hashtags are so... 2016. While it's still fun and convenient to incorporate a wedding hashtag to easily find your guests pictures on social media, there is now an emphasis to create Instagram-worthy photo opportunities. So nix the photo booth and create a profile picture-worthy background instead. Floral walls have been around for a while, so add a sign to make it more personalized.

2018 South Asian Wedding Trends

Anybody who knows me knows that I love South Asian weddings. Bright and colorful, South Asian weddings often occur over multiple days filled with numerous events.

2018 is gearing up for some major new trends when it comes to South Asian weddings. Here are just some of my favorites: 

Lounge Area
From the sangeet to the reception, weddings guests enjoy talking to one another. A lounge allows your guests to relax while doing what they love the best! Make it more memorable by incorporating South Asian Decor. Plus, it doubles as a photo opportunity!

Floral Mandaps
While previous years have been dominated bright and colorful fabric mandaps, this year sees a different version of traditional canopy structure. Now, mandaps can be constructed with gorgeous floral designs and more simple fabrics.

Intricate cakes decorations
Whether floral or mendhi-inspired, 2018 is going to see the rise of intricate, yet elegant, cake designs take the center floor.

The Atelier, a Boudoir studio in Chicago

Happy Valentine's Day! While others may be thinking of roses or chocolates, why not come up with something a little bit more personal?


The term "boudoir" actually means a women's private sitting room or salon.  Photography, however, has given boudoir a whole new meaning. Boudoir photography started as early as the 1920s, featuring female powerhouses such as Clara Bow, Mae West, and Jean Harlow.


Modern boudoir photography features intimate and sensual photos. These photos make a great gift for your partner: on your the wedding day, the first anniversary (can you think of a better paper gift?), or for a special occasion like Valentine's Day!


The Atelier 
The Atelier in Chicago is a wonderful studio that specializes in boudoir photography. Not only is professional hair and make-up included in their Experience package, they have a fantastic staff on-hand to answer any questions or concerns. The end result is gorgeous!

Create meaningful moments with Tribute!

Guestbooks have become a staple within the wedding industry. But sometimes, it's difficult to write down everything someone wants to say about a couple on the wedding day -- there are just all the memories, the nostalgia, and the feelings! 

Tribute allows for couples to create video guestbooks to remember and keep for a lifetime, all while giving their guests ample time to say everything they want to say. With a quick and easy set-up, Tribute sends out links to guests for them to upload personalized tribute videos specifically about the couple. The videos then get compiled for the ultimate personalized gift for the couple-to-be! 


Tribute can also send out Tribute booths to weddings, an update on the classic photo booth that records videos of their guests' tributes to compile for a post-wedding treat. 


Check out a sample here. Visit here to get $19 off your first Tribute video.
