Sunday Wedding? Why Not? Nowadays people are looking to create more of an experience with their wedding day and what better way to do that than to host a Sunday Funday wedding. From brunch food to a full celebration weekend, there are many benefits to hosting a Sunday wedding, so let’s dive in!

So you’ve got your venue (yay!), and now you’re starting to book your wedding vendors. You can see the pieces all coming together, well... *almost* coming together. The one thing that’s tripping you up is the timing of everything. Trust us, we’ve all been there. Creating your wedding day timeline is really tricky! The hardest part is knowing where to start, but don’t worry - we’re here to help! Follow the guide below to start building your wedding day timeline.

So you're starting the wedding planning process, but where do you start? We've got a saying around here, once you find your wedding venue everything else falls into place. And it's so true! Your wedding venue sets the stage for all other aspects of your wedding, including the grand total. Some venues may appeal nicely to your budget, while others check all the marks on your dream list. Luckily, A’BULAE has the most amazing packages so you don't have to sacrifice anything.

Picture the setting: it’s early summer and a warm breeze is blowing through the freshly bloomed trees. You can hear laughter in the distance as you feel the excitement in the air. It’s your wedding day. You have been preparing for this day for months, maybe even your entire life. The fathers are pacing and the mothers are chatting, as they are trying to calm their nerves. You hear the click of a camera shutter and the murmur of staff ensuring that the decor is perfectly in place. The candles are lit and the guests begin to arrive.


One of the biggest decisions you will make about your wedding, besides who will be waiting for you at the end of the aisle, is the venue. Do you want your ceremony and reception to be at the same place or separate? Do you have a certain type of venue like barn or loft-style space in mind?


While you will have your own checklist for what you are looking for in a venue, there are some dos and don’ts you should keep in mind while shopping around.

When it comes to wedding planning, by far one of the best parts is selecting all of your wedding decorations, color palettes, and floral arrangements.


Each and every detail brings life to your vision and creates a wedding day that will be unique to your love story. But if you want a jaw-dropping effect to put it all together - deck out your wedding dance floor with fantastic elements. Ready to elevate your wedding to a level that will blow your wedding guests away? Check out these stunning inspirational ideas for your wedding dance floor, so that anyone will raise the roof at your celebration.

All the arrangements have been painstakingly made for your big day. And now it’s finally here! But there’s a secret many wedding professionals don’t talk much about . . . the potential stress of getting ready on your wedding day. It can be one of the most exciting, yet nerve-wracking, times in your life. There are so many high emotions bubbling up. The bride, the groom, and their wedding parties need a private place to prepare for what can be an intensely emotional day filled with pressure for everything to go just right. They require a sequestered area where they can relax and transform into their most radiant selves. 

With an on-site parking garage, rooftop deck for ceremonies and social hours, expansive views of the capitol, and bluffs, this is one of Minnesota's most sought-after event sites. It's unmatched in every aspect. A’BULAE is Minnesota’s first fully-integrated reception venue that brings together people, events, and state-of-the-art technology. 

Taylor and Cody envisioned an intimate environment with “an extreme amount of greenery, a dusting of white flowers” and tons of glowing candles. They wanted simple decor with less maintenance and teardown required, which was part of the appeal of the venue, with its raw beauty. At A’BULAE, the existing chandeliers, exposed wood beams and the expansive windows with views of snowy downtown St. Paul created the perfect base for warm, simple decor that truly reflected Taylor and Cody’s personalities.

It’s the first thing you have to think about when you get engaged. No, not the dress (well, actually yes, the dress is the most important thing) but past that, where are all your guests going sit, dance, and hit up the cash bar? The venue! It sets the scene for what kind of experience you want your friends and family to have on your special day. Whether that is a SoHo-style loft in St. Paul, or a trip to the French countryside only 30 miles outside the city- we have found three top wedding venues that will be sure to set your wedding day apart from the rest.
