Even if you hire a wedding planner brides and grooms still have a lot of planning they have to do on their own. Whether you are the bride or the maid of honor, who has been so kindly delegated these tasks, we recommend a few apps to help make everyones lives (read planning process) a little easier!
1. Google Docs
Almost everyone has a gmail account these days so using Google Docs & Google Sheets are great ways to keep everyone (literally) on the same page! Their online word document and spreadsheet sharing apps allow you to keep yourself organized with important things like guest lists and decor meeting notes right on your phone. You can even adjust the settings so that other people can edit the document you share with them which is great if you or the wedding planner needs to make a revision.
2. Awesome Note
The cool part about this note-keeping app is the shopping list feature. It lets you organize all the of expenses for your wedding and categorize them accordingly. For example, you can create a list of accessories for the bridal party, let them know where to find it all, who needs to get what and how much it costs!
3. Moleskin Journal
The Moleskin Journal app is exactly what it sounds like; a digital notebook you can draw and write in for those times you want something very specific, but can’t find a photo or explanation of it. This is great for the bride (or Groom) who likes to sketch things out, but doesn’t want to lose the piece of paper it’s on or hand a ton of loose files to their wedding planner.
This app is probably the best all around free wedding planning app we’ve come across. It does everything from cataloging your vendors (by name or by type; bless!) to creating a visual budget and schedule of due dates to keep you on track for you big day! It even sends you reminders when payments and deadlines are due! It also has a countdown and the percentage of your total budget you’ve used to date on the home screen as well as the overall number of tasks you’ve completed so far verses the number of tasks you have yet to complete; literally perfect.
5. Appy Couple
This is a must have for any couple getting married. The app allows you to share every detail of your wedding with guests/loved ones through a beautifully designed website. Don’t worry they have templates (so no design training is needed!). The app also keeps track of RSVPs, is a great way for guests to share their photos from the wedding, and more!

With each year that passes weddings evolve to become even more unique. Grand exits are a great way to showcase your creativity, but few people give this part of the wedding much thought. I get it, sparkler exits make for absolutely beautiful photos (really, they do!), but as the trend grows increasingly more prevalent here are some fresh alternative ideas to help make your wedding’s grand exit the grand entry into your new life together!
1. Smoke Bomb
No, not a literal smoke bomb that will leave guests wishing for gas masks; a colorful non-toxic smoke bomb! This works best if your grand exit happens while it’s still light out, but this up-and-coming wedding trend is absolutely stunning and is sure to leave a lasting impression for years to come!
2. Glitter Toss
We know what your thinking… glitter gets absolutely everywhere, but hear us out because it’s totally worth it! (Especially because CFEC does the clean up for you!). It’s a special occasion, so why not? How many times will you get married? Risk the mess and use that glitter! Or, you could even use eco-friendly confetti.
3. Lavender Toss
Looking for something that’s a little more zen? Fill paper cones or little bags with dried lavender for guests to throw at your grand exit! It’s pretty and smells heavenly. If you wanted, you could even add your monogram or favorite saying to the cone or bag! (ProTip: For a little extra oomph use other aromatic herbs like dried mint or basil).
Not only will this give your guests a beautiful keepsake, but ribbons make a lovely and whimsical grand exit! This will add a romantic, ethereal element to your wedding photos, and works especially well for spring and summer weddings. To add a personal touch you could even have your names and wedding date printed onto the ribbons so that they double as unique favors as well!
These are just a few of the unique and creative ways to have a grand exit that’s sure to stand out in the minds of your guests! How will you exit your wedding, and open the door into the newest chapter of your lives together?

Come see us at the 2016 Bridal Extravaganza this weekend. Cypress Falls is not your typical venue and we always go back and forth on whether or not we should attend the Bridal Extravaganza, but there is just something about getting together with other vendors in the industry that just elevates our excitement for the upcoming season. And for our clients this event is very helpful in providing a one stop shop for them to get great deals and meet vendors face to face.

Thank you so much to The Wimberley Valley Art League for sharing your christmas party with us. It is such an honor to work with such an awesome organization. Here is a littble bit about them:
The Wimberley Valley Art League, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was started over sixteen years ago by a small group of Hill Country artists with common goals. Now it has grown to 130+ members from Wimberley and nearby towns. We promote an interest in and recognition of visual and functional art. We encourage support and appreciation of art, promote learning for its members, and assist in the development of community-wide interest in art.
What a fun night and such a fun group of people. Check them out at www.wimberleyartleague.org
Book your Christmas party with us and we will make it a night you will never forget!
We finally got these beautiful pictures back from our August bride Kelsey! Virginia Ann Photography did an AMAZING job!
From the Bride…..
Eric was born and raised in the Texas Hill Country! He loves exploring the outdoors, riding his motorcycle, and working with his hands. He’s known to grow a pretty mean garden. I was born and raised in the Texas Gulf Coast. I love the outdoors, archery, and my pups! I am also prone to giggle fits on a daily basis!
Eric and I met at church. I work in the nursery and my favorite little one happened to be Eric’s one-year-old nephew. Eric’s sister quickly became match maker. We met and I thought it was love at first sight! I fell in love quickly and knew Eric was my future husband. After a long and beautiful date at Lost Maples State Park, Eric realized the feeling was mutual. Over the next year and a half, we became best friends, partners in crime, and rather inseparable. Eric was house hunting before I came into the picture. I joined him on his quest and we ended up buying a quiet piece of property in the hill country. One Friday we went out to the property to what I thought was just another work day, but after dinner by a warm fire Eric led me to our favorite spot under a large oak tree. There was candles everywhere, another fire going, flowers, and wine. Eric embraced me and I could feel his heart racing. I knew this was it! I am pretty sure I said yes before Eric was even done asking! We will forever cherish that sweet spot under the oak tree in our backyard
We wanted a whimsical, bright, and fun wedding! We loved how the natural beauty of Cypress Falls Event Center complimented our outdoorsy personalities. Our wedding day was truly the best day of our lives! Our ceremony was under a canopy of trees down by Cypress Creek. The natural beauty of the ceremony site allowed us to decorate minimally. The reception was right up the hill in the outdoor veranda.
I wanted to put a lot of personal touches to our reception with marquee lights of our initials, personalized cups, and a beautiful cake topper with our names on it! The highlight of the night was definitely our Float Bar. We wanted to have something fun and different for our quests to enjoy throughout the night. Everyone was busting a move on the dance floor all night! I even showed off some of my moves! The night ended with an enchanting sparkler exit and Eric and I were off to our happily ever after!
Our June 6th weekend was full of family, friends, and kiddos. Sarah’s theme of ribbons and pastels was so whimsical. From the barefoot ceremony to the ribbons and bell’s grand exit, this wedding encompassed a sort of new age for of renaissance. Congratulations to Sarah and Luis! May your marriage be full of love and compassion for one another.
We are in love with last weeks wedding. Ruthy and Paul brought so much color and love into our lives here at Cypress Falls. With vibrant colors and fun pennant banners this bride was able to transform our venue into a Bohemian Moroccan Dreamland.
Alexis & Nate’s Speakeasy Wedding had everyone time warp to the 1920’s. With kazoo’s, tuba’s, and tattoo’s it was definitely a night to remember. This couple fell in love with Cypress Falls the second they stepped foot on our property, it reminded Nate of his summers in Minnesota! They were so sweet and we have nothing but amazing things to say about their wonderful families and friends. Thank you so much for choosing us and we wish you many years of happiness together.
