In these modern times, there are so many more ways to exit your wedding than the traditional "bird seed" toss. Check out these awesome ideas below to make the end of your wedding day just as exciting as the beginning! 
Be sure to keep in mind 3 things: 
1. What will be the hardest to get out of your hair, 
2. What will look best in pictures (consult your photographer), and 
3. What will be the easiest to clean up (consult venue policies and your planner)

Real Weddings: Casey & Andrew

In April we had the pleasure of doing day-of coordination for Casey & Andrew's lovely plantation wedding. They got married under the trees at Old Wide Awake Plantation, with a beautiful chandelier and baby's breath balls hanging from the branches. Some scrumptious cupcake were supplied by Cupcake that we enjoyed by all. Feast your eyes on these gorgeous photos taken by Hyer Images!

Let's Hit the Gym - Exercises, Music and New Clothes to Get You Moving!

Refinery 29 provides us with workout routines every bride can use, catered to the dress type you have chosen. You can find workouts for backless dresses, mermaid gowns, strapless and even short dresses! These workouts will keep you looking your best. Not quite getting married yet? These moves will get you in shape no matter what dress you're wearing!

As far as your workout music goes, we all need a little motivation to get our blood pumping, our heart thumping and our muscles moving! You can try Pandora Radio to meet all your musical needs. Pandora is super easy to use and has what we think is a great selection of music! You can choose to listen to anything, such as "Love Songs from the 90's" or a playlist generated to match your favorite music genre.

If you're the playlist type, below are some songs we suggest you rock out to while working out! We have quite the mix of upbeat songs to get you going. We've also thrown in some love songs to remind you why you're sweating it out in the first place!

Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke feat. T.I. and Pharrell 
Pompeii - Bastille
Instant Crush - Daft Punk feat. Julian Casablancas
I Want Crazy - Hunter Hayes
Over the Love - Florence & The Machines
Trying To Be Cool (The Chainsmokers Remix) - Phoenix
Love Somebody - Maroon 5
Kickstarts (Afrojack Remix) - Example
Highway Don't Care - Tim McGraw feat. Taylor Swift and Keith Urban
Safe and Sound - Capitol Cities
Paradise (On Earth) - Cris Cab
Let's Go! - Big Gigantic

Don't forget that the best way to get a sweat in is to be confident and look good doing it! We all know that once we buy new workout gear, we are actually inspired and excited (yes, excited!) to get to the gym. If you're looking to really spiff up your workout gear, head to Lululemon, newly located at 279 King Street, or visit their website to shop online. You can also get your guy moving by outfitting him in all new workout gear too!

If you're not looking to spend a lot on your new threads, try Gap Fit or some of Target's Activewear. Gap is known for their colorful and long lasting items, while you can find some really great reliable brand names at Target, like Champion. Now that you're all decked out in your new gear, have new tunes and new moves to get you going, get out there and have some fun - healthy and confident looks good on every bride-to-be!
