I wanted to say a huge thank you to Simone and Wesley for sharing their day with us. Simone was so incredibly thoughtful in sharing all of her insider tips with us, inspiring us to infuse weddings with perfect and yet utterly affordable detail.
Simone writes a pretty awesome blog that basically showcases her love of all things chic called Social Page that you should definitely check out. AND if you are in need of a hugely talented wedding designer, check out Simone’s event planning company!

A last bit from Simone…
At 10pm, guests were picked up in Vintage Trolley cars and brought to Ginger Sixty-Two, a popular lounge in Vancouver. We bought out the space for the night and flew in our favorite DJ from Calgary. Guests danced all night long, I don’t think I got off the dance floor once. Guests were dancing on the table. I would recommend doing this for anyone who feels it is important that everyone dances and has fun.
The After Party cost us next to nothing (we had more hors d’oeuvres served at the lounge so we had to pay for that otherwise it would have cost us NOTHING!), usually you will have a “Buy Out.” There’s was a $1,500 minimum, so if the guests spent over that you do not have to pay anything. If not you just have to cover the difference.
