Think you can't have a small, super chic NYC wedding for $3500? A Pop Up Wedding will change your mind

When it comes to making wedding planning chic, fun, and SUPER EASY, there's nothing like a pop up wedding. It's like an elopement, but more styled, more fun details, and in this case, a TON done for you by a seriously professional and knowledgeable wedding planner. Yep, we're introducing one of our coolest partners, THE PRIVILEGE IS MINE, wedding planner extraordinaire, with a whole new offering you'll dig…

What's month-of coordination (& why this "wedding fairy coordinator goddess" makes it SO easy!)

We introduced you to one of our event planning besties, Stephanie Gatton Events, last year and you guys made it your business to book her. Offbeat couples figured her background in stage managing and top-notch organizational skills would take their wedding planning to epic levels, and THEY DID.

With another year of planning kick-ass weddings under her belt (making it 10+ years total!), Stephanie has only gotten better. Let's see what she's been up to in the New York area (and WAY beyond!). (Hint: it's got a lot to do with month-of coordination AND a discount for you!)

Thing the is, Sarah introduced us to a whole NEW concept for couples who may not be able to afford the whole kit-and-caboodle of wedding planning. And I needed to introduce this to you because it.is.RAD.

At first, I was thinking of inviting family, friends, out-of-town relatives — you know, the typical thoughts that run through some people's head after a proposal. Then, I had a totally unexpected idea. Why don't we elope? I was at the time of my life where I didn't care to spend a ton of money on a wedding and I had no desire to. But what do my wedding planning couples think now?
