Wedding Reception November 27, 2010

It’s always nice when you get positive feedback, so we thought we would share:

We wanted to thank you for our daughter’s wonderful wedding reception on 27 November.  Everything looked beautiful and the food was delicious and plentiful!  The pumpkin chocolate chip cake was out of this world!  Everyone had a great time and we received many compliments.  Again, many thanks!

Personalize Your Wedding

The latest fashion in wedding planning is personalization. Brides everywhere are searching for ways to personalize their big day and make it ‘one of kind’.

It’s no shock the thoughts of dresses, invitations, venues and cakes, begin to consume every thought. Picking the date, choosing the flowers, managing the family members and their opinions, are just a few things that can drain a bride-to-be’s creativeness.

So what’s a bride to do?

There are many costly ways to make your wedding day memorable, but there are alternatives to breaking budget with unoriginal ideas. The up-and-coming movement is to personalize your wedding day.

Create invites that will amuse.

The days of who, what, where and when invitations are gone – personalized invitations are in. Since your invitations will be the first impression guests will have of your event, it’s important you pick a color, motif, and style that’s consistent with the theme of the day. Incorporate pictures, different fonts and choose the wording to fit your character.

Get your friends and family involved.

Yes the wedding day is mainly all about you and your groom, but it is also a special day for your family and friends. Get those closest to you involved to make your day unforgettable for everyone.

Get with the program.

Instead of the traditional programs brides hand out before the ceremony, add flair to yours and have some fun:

• Personalize your programs and jazz it up with a roster sheet. Give your bridesmaids and groomsmen descriptions that reflect their personalities.

• Your personal thoughts of the bridal party will make every bridesmaid and groomsmen feel unique, and your guests will have something to laugh about before you make your walk down the aisle.

Tips for the Reception

Flaunt your initials.

Commemorate your new last name by monogramming everything from the invitations to the napkins and favors. You can create your own monogrammed creation by searching the Internet for ideas and using your home computer’s graphic capabilities.

Remember to make the color, motif and design all your own. Be original!

Make your decorations picture perfect.

Create a gallery of family and friends’ wedding and engagement photos at your reception site.

Mount pictures in the same type of frame or mix and match for a diverse feel. No matter how you organize your photo gallery, family and friends are sure to fall in love all over again at the site of their photos. Make sure you add photos of you and your groom, as well.

Show guests where you’ve been.

Instead of using a boring system to differentiate tables, give guests an idea of where you’ve visited. Frame photos of you and your groom at different places you’ve gone together as a couple and label them with the name of the place. Each location is special because you shared the memory. Guests will enjoy walking from table to table to see all the fun places you’ve been.

Be brave and creative – try new things – personalize!
