The New Rules of Wedding Etiquette|PEAR|Buffalo, New York Wedding Planning

Posted by on Dec 7, 2017 in Buffalo Wedding Planning | 0 comments

  • Call your parents before you “post” or “tweet” to announce your engagement.

            Since this is one of the biggest events of your life, making it personal with family and close friends will make it more memorable for you and will also make them feel more included.

  • Post pictures of your engagement ring.

            Ever since you posted your ”engaged” update, everyone has been dying to see your ring. So post it! But keep the details of price and carat to yourself to prevent bragging. ( And a manicure may be wanted so that first look everyone gets is picture perfect.)

  • Designate a “tweeter of honor.”

            Pick a bridesmaid who will let you enjoy your day and make you stay off your phone while still keeping everyone updated. Everyone who wasn’t able to make it to the wedding will still want to have a play by play so they can still know what is happening

  • Send out traditional paper invites for the main event.

            In todays technology based world, where your guests receive hundreds of emails a day, a physical invite has become so much more special. Emails are okay for pre-wedding parties and more unofficial gatherings.

  • Spread the word about your hashtag.

            Nearly all of the guests at your wedding have some sort of technology so when they post a picture or a status of how beautiful your first dance was, you will be able to back track through those hashtags and relive your night through your guests eyes.

Happy Wedding Planning!

Event Styling | Room Transformation | Salvatore’s Buffalo New York

Posted by on Mar 12, 2017 in PEARevents | 0 comments

PEAR added a touch of chic to the traditionally established venue Salvatore’s for the Child and Adolescent Treatment Services annual fundraiser, Ignite Hope.  With a tested theme of Fire & Ice, lighting and room layout were priority among most.  Salvatore’s is a renowned and well-known venue in the Buffalo, New York area, which lends to hosting multiple events at the location.

Our challenge this year was to re-make the room as no one has ever seen it.  By displacing the center dance floor and filling in the room with an arrangement of special shaped tables, we were able to pay respect to the historic venue’s charm while infusing a new functionality and style.

Guests roamed and mingled among the white leather lounge furniture and glowing cocktail tables, while Mike Nanula serenaded the crowed with Frank Sinatra coos. Food stations including Steak in the Grass and mashed potatoes indulged the appetite needed before dancing the night away.
