Wedding planning

Hotel Blocks got you stressed?

As wedding planners we've done it all, including coordination hotel blocks for our clients. Planning a wedding can be a long & stressful process, but luckily you don't have to do it alone. We have your back!

 

Tips for blocking rooms:

1. Do it Sooner Rather Than Later...

It is best to have your hotel block finalized after you mail your save the dates but before you send out those invitations. People will begin planning their stay arrangements anywhere from 6-3 months out from your wedding so having a direction to point them in early will make them feel at ease.

2. Know the Lingo...

Committed vs. Complimentary?? Hotels have different terms for how they block rooms. A committed block requires whomever is blocking the rooms to guarantee those rooms will be filled. If this fails to happen you might get stuck holding the check for the empties, so know the terms before you sign.

3.  Block Where You Want to Stay

Many hotels offer deals for the happy couple. If you block where you stay, your hotel may offer anything from a complimentary room to a free upgrade for a wedding suite all in the name of love!

 

 

Cheers!

Stressing out about the bubbly to serve at your next event?

We've got you covered...

Many of our clients are concerned about the open bar situation at their venue - mostly about cost and making sure everyone's drink needs are met.  We think the best way to go in any situation is a signature cocktail.  Not only does it cut down on expenses, but you have something special that your guests will remember the evening with.

Hello, World!

With a joyful yelp and maybe a little flush on our cheeks leftover from Valentine's Day, we are proud and excited to launch THREAD Events.

For us at THREAD, events mean many things, but above all our work comes down to one main idea: creating moments. Moments that last a lifetime.  Yes, there will be music, there will be dancing, there will be fabulous eats and treats, but it is the perfect combination of all of these ingredients that makes for the best memories.  

We at THREAD fancy ourselves artists in the event-planning genre.  If events are our canvas, then you can think of this blog as something like a gallery.  Join us here as we fill our walls with tips, tricks, and inspiration.

Thank you for visiting and keep your eyes peeled for more great things to come!
