Wednesday Wisdom - To Have Kids or Not To Have Kids

You’re planning your wedding and getting ready for the happiest day of your life when it happens. That dreaded topic is brought up. The question that tears families apart, causes strife among friends, and creates headaches. 

Are you going to allow children to attend?

It’s the last thing you want to worry about but the thing that can cause some serious stress. Of course you don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings but you also don’t want a lot of kids running around. Don’t feel bad; it’s something all brides have to think about! 

Here’s the beautiful things about the Mims House; we can solve that problem for you. We have a simple solution that allows you to invite children to your special day but also keeps them from running amok. 

Let us introduce you to our Kids Room! Tucked away on our second floor, the Kids Room is a great space for the little ones to hang out, play games, and nap while you and your adult guests enjoy the ceremony and reception below. 

All you have to do is hire a babysitter for the event and voila! You’re happy, your guests are happy, the kids are happy!  

Ultimately, it’s YOUR day and you get the final say, but if the only thing that is stopping you from inviting children is not having a place for them to stay during your wedding, fear not! Mims has you covered! 

Friday Feature - Megan's Bridal Portraits

We love when brides come into Mims and make the space completely their own! That’s what our bride Megan did during her bridal portraits shoot. 

She excitedly took charge and used each room in the house to capture her gorgeous gown, hot pink shoes, and infectious personality! 

From standing regally on the staircase to lounging on a settee, Megan took advantage of the natural lighting and whimsical atmosphere of Mims. 

This bride also knows how to have a good time and wasn’t afraid to make some goofy faces to add to her collection. 

Megan is always full of laughter and we enjoyed hosting her and her fantastic photographer, Amaris Photography!

Friday Feature - Sarah's Bridal Portraits

One of our favorite things at Mims House is working with gorgeous brides-to-be. Whether it’s through hosting the bridal luncheon, the actual wedding or having the bridal portraits shot here, we love spending time with and growing to know these fantastic ladies. Our recent bride, Sarah, is no exception! 

Sarah chose Mims as the backdrop for her bridal portraits and we couldn’t be more thrilled. l mean, look at how stunning she is! From the way the crystal chandelier complements her gown embellishments to the collaborating shades of purple in her shoes and settee, Mims seems to have been created just for Sarah!

The staircase served as a great space to showcase the length of Sarah’s gown and the natural lighting from the Ladies Parlor captured her entire ensemble beautifully. 

We are honored that Sarah chose Mims as the place to highlight her beauty! Thanks to her and Silver Feathers Studios for spending time with us and bringing their joy to the shoot!
