Thursday Therapy Nashville

Have y’all heard about Thursday Therapy? Well we’re bringing it to Nashville! It is a monthly gathering among wedding pros where we collaborate and share in a fun, laid-back and approachable environment. It is extremely casual and comfortable, and a great time to catch up with industry friends that you might only normally get to see in a work setting! Plus, it is not just for one group of vendors. It is for planners, photographers, videographers, stationery designers, floral designers, caterers, those in the rental and lighting industry, and more!

Thursday Therapy Nashville July Social

Our first Thursday Therapy social will be next Thursday from 6-9 PM at the fabulous Tequila Library that overlooks the first level of Saint Añejo in the heart of The Gulch. The Tequila Library will be providing light snacks, and there will be a variety of other bites and drinks available for purchase. The talented Ian Riley will be there to photograph all of the fun candid moments of the evening!

Sound like a fun night to you? Well head on over to the Thursday Therapy Nashville site to RSVP. We would love for you to spread word about this event to all of your wonderful industry friends! And if you haven’t done so already, also make sure to add yourself to our email list to receive updates on future Thursday Therapy events!

Father’s Day Gifts from Beardition

Father’s Day is right around the corner, and it is time to start thinking of unique and special ways to celebrate the men we love most in our lives. Instead of getting your dad and/or hubby a new bow-tie (we’re all guilty of that), we think it would be wonderful to get them something that they will surely use every day. This is why we love the products that Beardition has to offer!

Father's Day Gifts by Beardition

Beardition offers wonderful, 100% all natural beard and grooming products. They provide products both for men with beards, like their beard shampoo, conditioner, and oil, as well as products for men without beards, like shaving cream and after shave. Their formulas are made specifically to keep mens faces hydrated and healthy, as they start with an aloe vera base and other natural ingredients. Plus, their branding and packaging is absolutely awesome, don’t ya think? I know my dad would love to open this package on Father’s Day!

Beardition is based in Nashville, TN and is sold both online and in brick & mortar shops. Locally, they are sold in Uncle Classic Barbershop, Kore in Edgehill Village, The Trunk in East Nashville and in their mobile truck boutique, in Atmalogy on West End, in White’s Mercantile in 12 South, and in a variety of other stores. Their products are also sold in the ten other states across the US, as well as in the UK, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Canada, the Middle East, and they are currently working with a distributor in Australia.

Not only would Beardition products be a great gift for your dad on Father’s Day, but it also makes a perfect gift for graduates, groomsmen, and everyday use! Make sure to check out all of their products in their online shop to see which you think would be the best fit for the men in your life.

Moms and Mimosas

Hey Nashville brides-to-be, we have a fun event announcement for y’all!

Moms and Mimosas Event | Amber Housley Weddings | Nashville Wedding Planner

Next Saturday, May 24th, our favorite ladies at Wedding 101 are hosting a Moms and Mimosas event at their space in The Gulch. When they approached us with the idea of the event and asked us to design the invitation, we were so in love! The event is such a fantastic idea, and we always jump at the chance to be creative and design something new.

At the Moms and Mimosas event, you will be able to create your own personal perfume and makeup and peruse some gorgeous jewelry all while having a mimosa in your hand and your mama on your arm!

If you are interested, make sure to RSVP to Heather at the email address above by May 17th. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Nashville Wedding Planning | The Bake Shoppe

The element of a wedding that we have found ladies and gents to both have equally strong opinions about and get really excited to discuss is their wedding cake. It is hard to find a couple who doesn’t adore cake, especially with the abundance of amazing bakers here in Nashville! One of our favorites has to be The Bake Shoppe. We have used their cakes in past weddings, and can personally attest to how delicious they are!

Don’t both of those cakes make you want to grab a fork and dig in? Not only were they tasty, but they were presented beautifully too and perfectly matched the overall design of each wedding! They offer three different series of cake designs, from their classic series with six available styles from which to choose to their designer series which allows you to have more options in regard to color, design, flavor, and size, to their custom series which truly allows you to match your cake exactly to your wedding. Our designer focused mind believes that is absolutely the best way to go!
