Pick and Choose

Once you’re engaged you will naturally be flooded with a quickly growing list of to do items. It ranges from things like “take engagement photos” to “buy a wedding dress”. The list is long and some things are more important than others. There are tons of resources out there that will help you create the perfect “I do” timeline for you but let’s take a break from to do’s and talk vendors!

Vendors are the folks who are going to make your dreams come true. From florists and cake bakers to live musicians and paper stylists, you will collect yourself quite a few key people. In the next few weeks we are going to be helping you choose the right vendors that suit your needs, personality and budget. As all of our Posh brides have the luxury of working right along side our consultants as we build their perfect day, we take the guess work out of vendor hunting, one of the best parts of being a Posh bride!

So where do you start? Great question! As you are putting together your ideal day, start to make a list of all of your wishes and wants. Are you set on having a 12 piece band? Make sure to include that in your plans so that none of your wishes are sacrificed.

Here is a sample of some key vendors you will probably need to hire-

Fancy Meeting You, Ashley!

We are so happy to have y’all meet Ashley Greene, our co-owner and a lead consultant. Ashley is from Milledgeville, GA and now lives in Charleston with her husband Scott, two kids Grace (7) and Zane (5) and fur baby Campbell.

Ashley’s favorite spot in Charleston: Strolling through Battery Park or through the Market downtown is definitely a must when you visit Charleston. My favorite place is Sullivan’s Island though. I LOVE the beach and Sullivan’s has the best restaurants to top it off!!

Ashley’s go-to date night: The Obstinate Daughter on Sullivan’s Island & then walking on the beach afterwards.

In a different life Ashley would be: a crime scene investigator!

If Ashley were a flavor at Leopold’s she would be: Thin Mints & Cream…combining thin mints (Girl’s Scouts+Savannah go hand in hand) & ice cream seems like a no-brainer to me!!

Every wedding should have: a wedding planner…duh!

Ashley’s advice for the engaged couple: Remember that the wedding is about the two of you and what you want your guests to experience at your wedding. Sometimes couples start thinking about what other people expect and forget to focus on the wedding that they have dreamed of. Most of our weddings are destination clients so incorporating the guests into multiple events throughout the weekend really helps to create a wedding experience. Think about some of your favorite things to do in Savannah when planning the wedding weekend and find ways to incorporate them!!

A day in the life of Ashley looks like: Every morning, I wake up and get my kids ready & off to school. While they are in school, I try to work as much as I can for Posh Petals and Pearls. Some days it is a lot of phone calls & emails, and other days, I am in meetings with clients and vendors or doing site visits. For my wardrobe, right now, I am loving Stitch Fix!! I rarely have time to shop for myself so having someone do it for me and deliver clothes to my doorstep is genius!!

The best part about Ashley’s job: Getting to know my clients. I have been blessed to work with some amazing people, and at the end of the wedding, I am happy to say that we have not only created a beautiful wedding but also formed a friendship!

Cheerwine or sweet tea: Sweet tea

Favorite southern saying: “Bless her heart”
