A Intimate Elopment In Detroit, Michigan

Happy September!

Its been a pretty busy wedding season for B Posh Events! We have about 6 more weddings through October before our season comes to an end!

In the beginning of the summer, we announced that we would be adding elopement and officiant services. We also had a contest to familiarize everyone with what our elopements would look like.

Detroit Elopement Weddings & Michigan Elopement Weddings

Detroit & Michigan Wedding Officiants


You might wonder what a elopement wedding is. Well, it can be many things. If you google "What is a elopement wedding, you will find this explanation..." it is often referred to a marriage conducted in sudden and secretive fashion.

What I knew elopement weddings to be, were when two people decided to leave town and get married in another state like Las Vegas.

Well, there is a NEW way to elope, and you can elope in your own city! You can also create a personalized elopement that can capture a fun, romantic or adventurous day, all while having it captured on camera via a photographer, videographer or both!

Our new packages will allow our couples to have the Detroit Elopement Ceremony they have envisioned. Our Ordained Detroit Wedding Officiant, will be sure to approve whatever type of "I Do" you have you heart set on.

We wanted to wait for the videos, but we have just been too anxious and excited. So we are going to go ahead and post a few teaser pictures of our firstand second Detroit Elopement couples while we wait on the video.

Easter & Flower Girl Dresses!

Easter & Flower Girl Dresses!

Helllo and Happy Ressurection Sunday, also known as EASTER!

I have many Easter traditions which include going to church, cooking an amazing meal, and spending time with family! But, I also have a Easter tradition that involves Weddings and that is, shopping for Flower girl dresses!

My brides often ask me suggestions on where to purchase flower girl dresses. I typically offer few online stores, but I also  suggest them to wait for the sales to come!

One thing I love is catching a great deal! I'm absolutely obsessed with finding the best deals, and avoiding having to pay full price for items. I also love sharing these deals with others!

So, typically the week before Easter, I send a message to all my brides that don't have flower girl dresses, and let them know that the week after Easter, all little girly dresses will be 50-80% off! That's right, 50 to 80% off!

Yes! You can possibly purchase a $100 dress, for just $20! You can later on, jazz up the dress with a ribbon as a belt to match your wedding colors, have flowers added, or just purchase cute accessories to match the flower girl dress.

Big name stores everywhere like, Macys, Nordstrom's, Target, Kohls, JC Pennys, Burlingtons will have dozens of dresses on clearance racks, awaiting your purchase.

That's right, this is the BEST time to snag the perfect little dress for your beautiful flower girl!

We cant forget about our little ring bearer. Those suits and 2 piece outfits will also be on sale!

If your wedding is this year, but later on in the year, buy one size up! If your wedding is the following year, buy 2 sizes up!

So, who is actually responsible for purchasing your flower girls dress? Well, honestly that's totally up to you! Being able to purchase these dresses at such a low price, I suggest the bride just purchasing the dress as a gift for your flower girl. Why not?

So, either run to the stores to get the first pick, or visit stores online!!


Lets talk BUDGET. Ohhhh, yes the word BUDGET!


Lets talk BUDGET. Ohhhh, yes the word BUDGET!

I don’t know why people are so scared of that word. You want to have a wedding right? You want the wedding to be everything you dreamed of and more! Ok, well then you need to set a budget. Not just any budget, a realistic budget.

PLEASE NOTE…Your vision must match your budget.


I can work with most REALISTIC budgets, but my goal is to get my clients to understand what you can get within your budget.


I had a young lady call me inquiring about wedding planning services. My first question, was what is her date?  My second question was budget?

Third question was how many guests?


The young lady gave me her budget and her guest count. The budget was $5,000, and her guest count was 300.



(Sidenote: According to Google, the average wedding in Michigan cost $25,870.)


Yikes! See,  most times clients just have no idea how much a wedding can really cost.



I then asked her about her vision, because I was concerned with her guest count realistically matching up with her budget. I had her email me a few inspiration photos. She sent over these elaborate floral centerpieces (which appeared to be around the $100 per centerpiece margin), upscale chairs (which are easily around $4.00/chair to rent) and a beautiful cake (actual cost of this cake could be about $800).


So, instead of shooting her down and making her budget appear to be unreasonable, I simply let her know what she would be able to accomplish with a $5,000 budget for 300 people. That is approximately $16 per person. Will  $16 per person be able to cover the reception location, food, décor, photography, a dj, officiant, cake, ceremony space, and other misc items needed to pull of a wedding?


In my eyes, $5,000 is a backyard soiree with limited appetizers.


Her answer was no! So, I advised her to either raise her budget, or drastically cut down her guest list.


After meeting with her, and booking my services, we were able to raise her budget to $13,000 and cut her guest list to 150. With that amount, and teaming up with wedding professionals that are able to meet her budget, we will be able to accomplish a amazing wedding day!!
