We love destination weddings, favors and of course InStyle Magazine!  So it’s obviously a huge honor for Amy to contribute a great tip on 10 Wedding Favor Ideas That Are Anything but Basic on InStyle Magazine.  Amy says: Send the favor in advance! Especially for a destination wedding, sending the favor in advance is a great touch. Here we worked with Box Fox to create a travel goodie box that was shipped to all guests before they departed for Bali.

Outdoor Summer Wedding Trends

Nothing quite beats the romantic feeling of an outdoor wedding, from saying “I do” under the setting sun to dancing the night away under the stars.

One of the best things about having an outdoor wedding is that the possibilities are endless, but you also want to make sure you take advantage of the setting and whatever your venue provides, from rentals to staffing. See how MyDomaine featured Amy Nichols Special Events in their recent article: These Are the Biggest Outdoor Wedding Trends for Summer.

Embrace Color

“Just because you’re dining alfresco doesn’t mean you have to have a natural or subdued color palette. We went vibrant for this client’s wedding in Maui.” — Amy Nichols, owner, Amy Nichols Special Events
