Donuts!


Bread & Chocolate just got a whole lot sweeter! We are so excited to announce that we are adding donuts to our menu! We did our first wedding a few weeks back and were so thrilled with how everything turned out! 

How amazing is that donut "cutting cake"?! We love it! 

If you are interested in donuts for your event, please don't hesitate to contact us regarding flavors and pricing. Cheers! 

Wedding Planning Apps

Wedding planning can be stressful and time consuming. These phone apps can be a great help when you’re planning your wedding, and even after planning! 

Budgeting- Mint

Weddings can be expensive no matter where you’re getting married. Creating a budget for your wedding can be a surefire way of making sure you don’t go overboard and break the bank. Sticking to a budget and recording your purchases can be helpful when things start to add up, especially those small costs that you don't necessarily think of.

We recommend creating a budget with a free app like Mint, its a great way to budget for a fixed amount each month to go towards your wedding expenses, or to add wedding-related line items to be budgeted for. When creating a budget for your wedding,  keep in mind that unanticipated costs can add 30% to your budget, so it can pay to prepare.

Wedding Website - The Knot

The Knot is soon to be your best friend. It’s a wedding website host, checklist, it keeps a handle on your guests for you, and has a ton of reviewed wedding vendors from across the country. The Knot is a great app no matter where you are in the wedding planning process. It can help you find vendors at the very beginning of your planning process and the checklist helps keep you right on track so you don't fall behind. 

The other great thing about The Knot is the wedding website tool. A wedding website can be a great and efficient way to get a bunch of information to your guests. You can link your registries, share specific wedding details and hotel block information. You can also personalize your website with pictures, wedding party information and even share your love story. 

Registry- Zola

We recommend trying Zola to mix it up when it comes to registry shopping for your guests. This company has created a dream registry, it’s everything you’d hoped a registry could do for you. Through one registry you can combine all of your favorite brands and allows  add some unconventional gift ideas that your guests can contribute to, such as experiences and cash funds. This registry also allows group gifting. Multiple friends can contribute to any item that you mark for group gifting.

You also have tons of control over your registry. For example, once a gift is purchased for you, they will notify you and give you the choice of shipping the product now, swapping it out for something else, or convert the purchase into store credit.

Inspiration- Pinterest  

An obvious choice. I'm sure many of our couples have had their dream wedding board filled with dreamy inspiration even before they were engaged. Pinterest can still be your go-to after you’re engaged. You can create public and private boards for all the specific details of your wedding. Be careful, sometimes things you see on Pinterest are really cute but can be very expensive or might not work with your venue and other vendors or time of the year you're getting married. Before you begin obsessing with a projector or look you found on Pinterest, please make sure to contact your vendors to make sure that it will be achievable. We have a Pinterest page that has a lot of different real wedding and inspirations that we highly reccomend you check out!
