Autumn is officially in the air, but we haven’t quite switched out of summer wedding mode just yet. Your Denver wedding planner Blue Linden wants to take it back to summer one more time and reminisce about the beautiful, charming, southern-style wedding of figure skater Tara Lipinski to sports producer Todd Kapostasy. After a year and a half engagement, the two tied the knot in late June of this year in Charleston, South Carolina in front of their nearest and dearest, and from the pics, the day looked like it was stunning and full of love!

I was floored when I found out I would be assisting with the coordination of Meghan and Conor’s wedding, not only because they’re such a fun-loving couple, but because it would give me an opportunity to travel to Telluride, Colorado for the first time. All I can say is, the scenic mountain town lived up to all the hype.
A quick Google search of ‘kid free wedding’ mostly results in blog posts from single-ladies-turned-moms saying how rude it is to ask potential guests to leave the kids at home. But this Denver wedding planner doesn’t entirely agree with that. Sure, it sucks to be excluded from something because you have kiddos in tow. But let’s be real, a wedding is about the bride and groom, not the feelings of the people they’ve deemed important enough to include in their special day. If anything, moms and dads should see a kidless wedding as the opportunity it is – a date night to let their guard down. And while there can be many, justified reasons to make your wedding a kid free zone, sometimes the success of making that understood and accepted lies in the delivery. So we’ve put together a handy guide for child free wedding etiquette with tips and suggestions to help make your message more well received and your kid free wedding an event to look forward to.
As William Shakespeare once said, “I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.” And thanks is what you should be giving if you’ve received (or are soon to receive) any items off your wedding gift registry. If you’re getting ready for your wedding day, you’re soon to know all about the undertaking that is: writing wedding thank you notes. But your Denver wedding planner Blue Linden wants you to know that it doesn’t have to be a daunting task, and if we can provide some thank you note tips to help you tackle those suckers, we’re all for it!
