We are so thrilled to be sharing the fabulous wedding of Megan from Forget Me Knot Weddings. Megan is super talented and creative, and her wedding was a true reflection of that, full of amazing details with lots of personality!
Tell us a little bit about your blog and how you got started
“I created forget me knot weddings on a whim, not really realizing what I was getting myself into. A friend suggested I start a blog since I couldn’t let go of all the wedding inspiration I found myself addicted to after planning my wedding. I knew i wanted to be an event planner + design so I reached out to a few SF based planners and began to work weddings on the weekends and ran fmkw.”
Tell us a little about you and your husband–how you met, the proposal, etc.
The mister and I meet in college, our last semester of senior year. He was on a bench waiting for class to begin and I nonchalantly asked him “are you in this class”, knowing I really knew the answer was “yes”. From there we become friends and then a good few months later we were together. Now 7yrs later we are married and still talk about the day we met.
How involved was your husband in wedding planning?
He was involved, not really, really involved but his opinion mattered. Let’s be honest he wasn’t looking at wedding blogs all day like I was. We did chose our great location, photographer and design look all together though.
As a blogger, you see tons of amazing inspiration daily. How did you narrow all that inspiration down for your wedding?
It is very overwhelming with all the great inspiration out there but since we were married at Beltane Ranch, the venue was our answer. We went with a “ranch” vibe and let the beauty of the venue do all the work.
Do you have any advice for brides-to-be on how to get inspired for their own wedding?
I think the best way to get inspired is to check out wedding blogs, find your favorites that speak to you most and make it your own. I think the best inspiration comes from what your home looks like and even what music you like. Use interior design, music and blogs as great sources of inspiration.
If you could go back and get married again, are there any changes you’d make?
Well let’s be honest since every day I see so much inspiration I could of course change the look and design. Maybe go to Palm Springs or even San Francisco but over all our the location and wedding team was amazing and we couldn’t have asked for a better day.
Wedding planning can turn a lot of perfectly normal girls into emotional wrecks! Any advice you can give for how to stay balanced during wedding planning?
Easy again – hire someone. I say this with experience from running around during my wedding tying things up, putting candles in things. I now know I should have asked someone to do all that for us.
If you did a lot of DIY or thrifting for your wedding, do you have any tips or favorite sources?
I would say check your local thrift stores, flea markets and Etsy shops for props and DIY items you can use for your wedding.
Tell us a little about what you’re doing now and your hobbies
“Currently after diving into the blogging world and working weddings I learned I had a passion for all things wedding related. never ever did I think I would be a wedding planner but look at me now. I am a co-owner of Enjoy Events Co with my fab biz partner Emily and we are loving every minute of it. We are not “those kind of wedding planners” with our headset and black uniforms, but think of us as your go to ladies for everything creative, fresh and unique. owning your own business is overwhelming but it’s important to step away and when I do, spending time with friends making dinner or hikes with our dog and going to live shows is what we love to do.”
