When it comes to the big day, all eyes are on your beauty. A bride deserves soft curves and radiant skin in their wedding photos. How much time should be allotted for hair/makeup: Let's take a quick moment - Bride should be allocated:
90 Minutes for Hair and Makeup
Have you heard the saying "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?" This rings especially true when it comes to getting ready for your wedding. Most brides have wished that they had more time before their big day.
We haven't had a single bride complain about being ready early, not a single one but I have had many of brides complain about the wedding starting late, missing out on dancing during the reception, first look, personal photos, sunset photos, and just moments in general.
Trust us, it can feel like too much time but consider a traditional salon experience, your stylist has all her tools setup at her disposal and access to everything that she could need or she can ask her counterpart for something quick but on your wedding day, they are often traveling with alot of tools and doing their very best. Plus the salon doesn't have 5 of your besties all chatting, drinking, and talking all at once. There is so much to take in.
Not only are these things happening around you but your stylist and makeup artist who may have only one interaction with you might find that you want some changes made to your hair or some adjustments to your original look, like tell me you had your makeup trial and didn't go into a dark hole on Instagram for other looks? Guilty?
Be ready 2 hours before the wedding ceremony start time.
Does being done with hair and makeup 2 hours before your wedding sound insane? Well, let's break down what you may still need to do after you are done with hair and makeup:
Brides should (almost) NEVER go last for hair and makeup on your wedding day.
For the love.... please just look at the list above. Your maid of honor, bridesmaid, mother, sister, auntie, great cousin, niece, or whomever you have in your mind is not thinking of the million things swirling in a bride's head on their wedding day. Even if they are conscious of the timeline and love you to the moon and back, they will still have time to get finished without missing out on moments.
The bride should (almost) never be last in the chair unless there's a situation where the vendor has to leave early to get things done and it still leaves us two full hours of being fully complete and ready to go for the wedding day.
You know what they say, "The bride is always on time but the makeup and hair never are." So when it comes to your big day? Make sure you're giving yourself enough prep time by starting early!
What if you're antsy in the waiting?
What if you don't have the kind of time needed to allocate the recommendations for a bride's hair and makeup timeline?
Few people have a knack for more than one talent. One of those special few is Beth Richard, founder of Austin-based Exquisite Petals, a floral company specializing in weddings and corporate events. Before she was a small business owner, Beth was a waitress who sang, played music, and so much more.
Originally coming to Austin with her now ex-husband to pursue music full-time and be a rockstar (yes, a rockstar), Beth quickly pivoted to a new passion: Flowers.
We sat down with Beth to learn more about her journey. Check out our conversation.
Events Unleashed: What was your first job like?
Beth: The funny thing is that I applied to a bunch of different florists and couldn’t get a job because I had no experience. I just started doing it on my own and that’s when I landed the Sullivan’s Steakhouse account and from there I also landed the Austonian and was able to do a party for the Circuit of Americas. From that I landed being the Circuit of Americas exclusive florist for 4 years of all their races. I moved into doing more weddings and corporate events. It was a very organic way of developing my business. If I didn't have vases or I didn’t have something, I’d buy it for that specific event.
Events Unleashed: How has your life changed since starting Exquisite Petals?
Beth: Thankfully, I was able to build up my arsenal, create jobs for people and be a stay at home mom. My studio is behind my house so I was able to raise my kids and that was basically the story and evolution. With COVID we haven’t been able to do our corporate events. However, we have gotten inundated with tons of weddings so that’s where we are with that.
Events Unleashed: You mentioned that you wanted to do music when you came to Austin. Did you play in a band before transitioning to flowers full-time? What was that journey like?
Beth: I still play music. I put out a record last year and did a new recording. (Check out a link to Beth’s HearNow page below!) I came here in a van with my now ex-husband and we played everywhere. Any bar you can name, we played at it. Our music was played on television and movies, and we were able to tour. We were living among the monks. So we wanted to be able to go on vacation, send kids to camp, all the things, put the money in the bank for college.
Events Unleashed: When a client gets to your studio, what advice would you share with newlyweds who are coming into a consultation?
Beth: It’s best if you come in with your color palettes. I like to do custom design for each wedding. People ask me “can you send pricing with your packages?”
I’ve never had packages because never the same. One person may want it super clean and elegant and hanging crystals. Someone else might want the Bohemian. My main thing is a romantic garden. I love lush blooms, asymmetric. I’ll do whatever people want because when you show up it should look like you. If people come in with a few pictures and a Pinterest link, it’s always helpful. What their favorite of everything is.
Just asking a few questions to accommodate wedding guests is very helpful. That way I know what color. I want to get to know your vibe, budget and personal style. What you want people to feel when they enter your room and your ceremony.
Events Unleashed: Wonderful. I know you have a passion for creating designs. Can you share a wedding or installation or anything that stands out to you?
Beth: There’s this one with Melissa and Tanner. They were planning to get married in Hawaii. But let me backup a little: I had a bunch of extra flowers leftover at a wedding. I texted my neighbors: “Hey, I have some flowers from a wedding, pick them up from my front lawn if you’d like.” Later, I saw these people walking by and I gave them flowers too.
A month later, Lahoma reached out to me about a wedding that’s coming up and she said they were getting married in Hawaii and it’s a last minute COVID wedding. They only have eight people but want it to be stunning. We set up a call and Tanner, the groom, goes: “Do you by any chance live on James Fifth Avenue? You gave us flowers a month ago.” They were an incredible couple and they wanted people to be able to see over the table.
We did a tablescape that went all the way down the table with lush flowers. We tried to include orchids because of Hawaii. It was at the Woodbine Mansion. They had these white posts on the back porch and we made it look like vines growing out. Even though it was a small wedding, there were a ton of flowers.
I saw them around the neighborhood and they sent me thank you notes. It was wonderful and a feel-good celebration.
We love working with Beth and listening to her music, too. Check out her work on HearNow.

If your wedding date is on the horizon and you need funds to make your dream wedding by Events Unleashed a reality, a side hustle might be the ideal option for you. More than 48 percent of people use their side gig money for extra spending.
Manage Your Side Gig Wisely to Make More Money
Side hustles are any type of employment that is undertaken besides a full-time job. Side gigs have become more accessible in the last few years, and it's primarily due to the gig economy and developments in technology. If you already have a side job but have a hard time with money or managing the job, here are a few tips on how to do that.
Choose the Right Side Hustle
Every hustle is different, and whether or not a side job is a nightmare or a dream gig will depend on various factors that include your goals, personality, and skills. Consider freelancing, which allows you to create your own hours and work whenever you can. Freelancing is perhaps the ideal side gig as it provides a lot of flexibility, often more money than a regular part-time job, and can eventually become your primary source of income.
Numerous industries — including IT, accounting and finance, sales and marketing, and more — will always need freelancers. Web development, digital marketing, or grant writing are fantastic freelance job ideas. Being a grant writer, for instance, requires experience in proposal writing, as well as good communication skills. On the other hand, developing websites or other media requires design skills and a good eye. Whether you're a creative person or a salesperson, finding a side hustle that you enjoy doing is the key to success.
Market Your Skills and Outsource
You need a virtual platform to get the word out on your services. Whether it’s a website or an online job board profile (or both), this will get you more exposure and expansion opportunities. Today, you can choose a website builder yourself, create a web page, upload your content, and market it with a few clicks. This method is cost-effective and time-saving, as well as user-friendly for a freelancer. Numerous freelance websites and online job platforms also allow you to create a profile, market yourself, and bid for your desired jobs. This makes it easier for you as you don't need to spend time advertising your services in other places.
Master the Concept of Energy Management
With a side hustle, how do you find the extra time to work it out? It will help if you experiment with everything — from getting up earlier to using your spare time to focus on your side job. Use tech tools like Microsoft Outlook or Google Calendar to block off time dedicated for it and reclaim some of your weekends. If you’re concerned about how the extra work might encroach on your wedding planning, Events Unleashed has wedding planning packages that can take a lot of time and worry out of your hands so you can be sure to get the wedding you deserve and are working hard for.
More important than time management is energy management. If you're a morning person, work on your side job done early in the day, if possible, when you're more focused. If you're a night owl, you may be more productive in the evenings.
Do Something You Enjoy
It's great to earn an extra income to pay for your wedding, but remember that side gigs are more enjoyable when you do what you like. Overall, to be able to manage your side gig is to choose the right side hustle, outsource, and market yourself thoroughly. Above all, learn to manage your time wisely. Contact Events Unleashed to start planning your big day.

Vendor Spotlight: From a little red wagon to a full floral design service, Addie Bier’s Verbena Floral aims to dazzle
Choosing and implementing stunning floral arrangements can be an overwhelming part of the wedding planning process. With variables like budget, types of flowers, or even wedding theme in the mix, there’s a lot to consider when choosing the flowers for your perfect day.
When it comes to floral, an Events Unleashed favorite is Addie Bier from Verbena Floral. Not only does Addie know flowers like the back of her hand, but her passion for creating unique floral arrangements knows no bounds. We caught up with Addie to ask her about her journey and love of floral freestyle.
When did it become clear to you that you wanted to work with flowers as a career?
I've always known flowers would be my life. My Dad was (and still is) an avid gardener. When I was around 10 years old, I started picking and bundling up little mini bouquets of flowers, packing them up into my red wagon, and selling them outside of the post office in our small town for a nickel per bundle. I didn't realize it at the time, but this would be my very early start to my career designing and selling floral arrangements.
Do you have any role models in the industry?
I've always loved Beth O'Reilly's floral designs, and Farm Girl Flowers.
What are your favorite kinds of floral styles?
I love all of them! Flowers are pretty no matter what the style. I do like to be able to use my own creativity rather than being bound by rules, but I will happily make any type of floral arrangement.
Is there an event whose floral decorations you did of which you are extremely proud?
I truly am proud of all my work, but one that stands out in my mind is floral arrangements I got to make for the set of a popular television show. It was neat to see the behind the scenes and I felt honored that they trusted me to put the designs together.
When potential clients come to meet with you, what are three things you wish they came prepared with?
I like it when they have photos of types of flowers and/or designs they like. Not because we want to mimic exactly the photos they show us, but so we can get a better idea of what is in their brain when it comes to the wedding/event style that they are envisioning.
Finally, for those of our readers just getting started in their wedding planning process, do you have any advice for them?
Don't get too bogged down in the nitty gritty, take it one day at a time. And if you are the kind of person who will, be sure to work with an event/wedding planner/coordinator so they can help you navigate through all of the moving parts. All vendors LOVE wedding coordinators!
And at the end of the day, you're marrying your true love and starting your life together and that's really all that matters. Oh, and when it comes to flowers.....all flowers are pretty and will always make people happy, no matter the type or shade, they will bring a smile to someone's face!

Welcome to a new series on the Eventsunleashed.com blog, where we’ll highlight some of our absolute favorite contractors, vendors, and event professionals. Learn more about our business and the partnerships key to creating consistently robust event experiences. You’ll meet the decorators, photographers, videographers, bakers, and more essential to a perfect event production.
Since we started Events Unleashed, we’ve made no bones about the fact we eat, sleep, and breathe weddings and decor. There’s nothing quite like helping someone take their vision from a germ of an idea to a full-blown dazzling display.
To achieve these winning aesthetics, we’re always looking for the best florists in and around Austin to create strong partnerships. One of those masters of decor is Theresa Wright, owner of D’Cor by T, whose unique sense of decoration has bedazzled many Events Unleashed-produced weddings.
While Theresa’s work keeps her busy, she was gracious enough to carve out some time to answer some questions about her passion for flowers, some of her most memorable installations, and some advice for recently engaged couples.
When did you realize flowers were something you wanted to work with as a career?
It became clear to me after helping a friend decorate her new house with flower designs throughout. Following that she decided to get married and the sky was the limit. It was both a scary and fun time. It turned out beautiful and some of her guests started contacting me for various events.
Do you have any role models in the floral industry? Who are they?
My long time role model/mentor, Kim, passed away 2 years ago. She was absolutely fabulous and polished in the area of floral design. I am grateful for her guidance and encouragement with helping me develop my flora skills/talents. I can still hear her voice saying, “let’s try placing these stems over here”.
What are your favorite types of floral designs to create?
My favorite floral styles include garden designs and art form designs that make bold statements.
Can you tell us about some of your favorite projects over the years?
I am extremely proud to have had the honor of being chosen to assist with decorating the White House for Christmas under the Obama administration in 2010 and 2014 and a special project in 2012. There was an abundance of fresh Christmas greens and natural designs that made bold statements, including the fresh trees. What an honor to serve my country by helping to decorate “the People's House” for Christmas. I’ll always cherish those memories.
What are three things you wished clients came prepared with when meeting for a consultation?
When clients come to meet with me, I wish they came prepared with an open mind if they don’t have a vision, realistic budget and patience.
Finally, what advice would you give to recently engaged couples thinking about their floral options?
1. Save, save, and save for your wedding.
2. Decide on a vision for your wedding.
3. Create a “Vision Board” displaying items for the wedding party, ceremony and reception.
4. Once you have decided what you want, STOP looking for and collecting pictures.
5. Partner with a buddy or close friend, who is not a part of the wedding, to assist you with staying on budget.
6. Sign contracts with reputable vendors whom you feel comfortable with.
7. Make sure the photographer takes pictures of the ceremony and reception sites so that you can see the beauty of your flowers and decorations prior to the event.

There’s no doubt that wedding planning can become an overwhelming project for you and your spouse. Especially as we enter the Holiday season, it can feel like your list of to-dos doesn’t have an end. If you’ve found yourself spending every weekend and afternoon off calling vendors and editing seating charts, then it’s time to take a break!
Here are 6 ways you can de-stress before your wedding day.
Be smart about your planning
It’s important to balance the fun planning, like cake tasting and make-up trials, with the more daunting tasks, like rounding up RSVPs. Powering through the tough tasks with the promise of rewarding time for you at the end is a great way to stay motivated and positive through the process.
Invite your friends to help
Your family and friends are also excited about your big day, and many will be happy to help you prepare! Invite your friends for a Saturday in of movies, drinks, and addressing invites to enjoy some quality time while getting ahead on your planning. Making these tasks fun for everyone helps it feel less like a chore and creates meaningful memories of your wedding planning days.
Plan a spa day at home
Few things beat a good facial to help you relax and recharge. These spa day printables are perfect for a self-care day for yourself, a date night with your partner, or a weekend celebrating with your bridal party. Create DIY hair masks and facials, get a nail polish that matches your wedding colors, then sit back and relax!
Go on a date with your fiancé
Wedding planning is a huge amount of work and it’s always good to reconnect with your partner to enjoy time together without talking about the wedding. Revisit your first date spot, enjoy a meal from your favorite restaurant, or plan a game night for two. Whatever brought you together in the first place is a great way to spark all of your excitement with none of the stress.
Prioritize your health
The key to stress management is always putting your health first. If you’ve been skipping weekly yoga to meet with your planner, adjust your schedule to make sure you can still sweat the stress out. Make sure you’re eating well, too. A balanced diet can regulate your body and emotions, helping you feel more energized and in control.
Take a week off
You deserve a break from planning, so don’t be afraid to take a week off. If you have any must-dos, see if you can delegate the tasks to your parents, wedding party, or wedding planner. This week is all about you and your favorite things, so grab a good book, plan a day with your friends, and enjoy a week without wedding stress. Everything will still be there when you get back, and nothing is more important than you’re well-being.
Whether you’re planning a ballroom celebration or a backyard micro wedding, we understand that you have a lot on your plate. Weddings are no small feat, and for most couples, they’re uncharted territory. With some support, self-care, and help from Events Unleashed, rest easy knowing that you’ll have the wedding of your dreams.
At Events Unleashed, we understand that change is the only constant in the event business, but that doesn’t mean everyone has to like it. In fact, change can be a huge obstacle for some companies and non-profit organizations to overcome. This can especially be a problem when your key stakeholders object to significant event changes, even when it’s absolutely necessary. And now, more than ever, the pivot to virtual events is absolutely necessary.
So how do you get your key leadership and stakeholders on board with an unfamiliar strategy?
Leverage Crisis management skills
If your corporate or non-profit event historically takes place in-person or you've already spent months planning it that way, communication is key to getting your key stakeholders on board with your new, digital event solution. To ease them into the process, you’ll need to channel your crisis management skills by:
Keep in mind, not everyone feels comfortable with the digital landscape, and when people feel forced into something they’re not comfortable with, they panic.
As a leader in the event industry, we realize we help our clients anticipate objections, provide analytics and best practices, and develop communication strategies at all levels putting our clients team at ease. We understand that you'll need to address concerns including:
Panic and push back are natural reactions when key leaders and stakeholders are bogged down by perceived limitations, especially when in-person events have been the standard and/our bread and butter for so long. Focusing on what's hindering your output, emphasize to your key leadership the benefits of digital events. Here are just a few to help get that conversation started.
Virtual events for non-profit organizations deeply reduces traditional event budget's biggest line items, specifically venue rental feeds and catering charges. The data currently reflects that many non-profit organizations and corporations are saving up to 80% by pivoting virtually. Let's break that down virtual event cost savings measures a little further:
Virtual events shrink some of the most expenses line items, giving your budget the breathing room to explore the tech solutions your stakeholders think are unattainable. When you go virtual, you are the venue. And who doesn't love that?
Direct Access to Donors and Millennials
When you leverage new technology to innovative, chances are high that tech savy donors and millennials will flock to what you're doing. Generation Y puts a higher value on screen-based interactions than any generation before them, so why not capitalize on all that real estate?
Millennial attendance is especially key to your event if it includes a charitable component. A 2014 New Horizon Media study found that 81 percent of millennials expect corporations to put their money where their mouth is and contribute to philanthropies. If your event includes, or can include, components relating to charity, climate change, or sustainability, you’re going to want to engage millennials in the medium where they are most comfortable.
Our earlier point on cost-savings applies to attendees as well. Virtual events provide more access for a more diverse and inclusive audience, particularly those who desire to participate but may not be able to afford ticket prices, travel, budget for meals, air fare, hotels, keepsakes, even cocktails for the after-hours networking crowd. It even becomes easier for those with disabilities to attend and participate in your event. Essentially, when you go virtual, you’re breaking down the barrier to entry and providing your non-profit organization or corporation access to a whole new group.
And a secret bonus benefit: You'd be surprised how many introverts can more easily come out of their shell when behind a screen. You just might meet potential donors, sponsors, or fans you never knew you had.
Remember, arguments in the face of crisis lead to more crises. When you’re able to listen, relate, and communicate, your odds of getting your event stakeholders on the same page are significantly boosted.
We'd be delighted to support you with all your virtual event needs, please contact us to learn more.

Post written by Kaley M. for Events Unleashed.
Wedding planners, wedding coordinators, event planners, event coordinators, event designers... there are a lot of terms for wedding and event professionals and they may sound one in the same. The roles of each are similar but there are distinct differences between them all. If that isn't already confusing enough, most wedding and event planners also offer coordination services.
We're here to help you make sense of it all! Keep on reading to learn more about each and the roles they play when it comes to your big wedding or event day.
Wedding or Event Coordinator
A coordinator, whether it's for your event or wedding, is in charge of coordinating your event on the day-of. They often help with managing the logistics of your timelines, load-in and load-out time of any vendors, and ensuring the overall success of the event. Most coordinators will start working with you about 4 weeks out from your wedding/event date to learn more about you and the overall goals for the event.
Wedding or Event Planner
A wedding or event planner helps you plan aspects of your event, with the the level of service usually differing amongst package options. Most planning packages will also include coordination services from the planner or someone on the planner's team. Planners help you in many ways, from recommending vendors and venues, to scheduling appointments, to managing RSVP's, to developing the event theme & concept, to floor plans and more.
Wedding Planners often focus their services on weddings but some may also offer event services. For Event Planners, some may offer services for all events, but others may specialize in a certain type of event planning. These categories include but are not limited to:
-Non Profit Event Planners: Plans non profit and charity events such as galas, fundraisers, auctions, and more.
-Corporate Event Planners: Plans corporate events such as company launch parties, dinners, luncheons, seminars, company parties and retreats, company conferences, and more.
-Meeting and Conference Planners: This planner specializes in planning meetings and conferences that are usually on the larger scale.
-Social Event Planners: Plans social events such as birthday parties, baby showers, engagement parties, graduation parties, wedding showers, holiday parties, themed parties, and more.
-Virtual Event Planners: Specialize in planning and gaining awareness for online events.
Wedding or Event Designer
Wedding or event designers specialize in design and decor, being experts at making your event visions come to life. Event designers may offer their own planning & coordination services or work closely with other planners, allowing them to focus solely on design.
Event production focuses on behind-the-scenes tasks such as lighting, audio-visual, video, stages, and more. Event production works closely with the planner to assure the production is on par with the planning.
Despite the similarities, the biggest difference between most event planners are their specializations. When choosing an event planner that specializes in a certain kind of event, rest assured that your planner has experience and will do their best in making your event the best that it can be.
