The Warrington County Club: It’s the ideal setting for your Bucks County wedding ceremony this spring

wedding ceremony bucks countyHere in the Greater Philadelphia area — Bucks County, Montgomery County and beyond — the months of June, July, August and September have traditionally been the most popular times of year for couples to tie the knot.

(Although as we discussed in a blog post last October, autumn weddings have lately been gaining in popularity as well.)

Spring, of course, has always been the most traditional season for weddings. Given the unbelievably chilly winter season we seem to have finally emerged from here in Bucks County, we can’t think of anything more uplifting and life-affirming than the wedding ceremonies we’ll be hosting this spring.

And in case you haven’t already heard, we’re currently in the process of putting the finishing touches on our stunning new foyer, which will feature a modern exterior and classic Greek columns. (See the photo below.) We expect it to be complete — and welcoming guests to spring ceremonies — in April. We can’t wait!

A Rave Review from a Highly Satisfied Newlywed

newlywedWe recently earned a rave review on TheKnot.com from a newlywed who was married at the Warrington Country Club on New Year’s Eve 2014.

We were so thrilled with the note that we wanted to share it with all of you:

Everything was perfect and stress-free. From the time we met with Sheryl to book and plan the wedding (which had a 3-month turnaround) to the day of the event, when Tracy happily and seamlessly coordinated every aspect of our day, we felt confident that everything was going to be perfect.

They are beyond professional, they actually enjoy what they do, and [they] tend to every request happily: room changes, time changes, decor, food requests…

On the day of the wedding, the facility was beautifully decorated from the holidays, the food was absolutely amazing, they gave us so many options to offer our guests, the servings were plentiful, and everyone had a blast.

I literally had nothing to do but show up and enjoy my wedding. I cannot thank them enough for providing a beautiful affair that our guests have been raving about ever since!!!

5 Wedding Trends For the Inspired Bride-to-Be

1. Make It Fun: Fun elements give a good-natured feel to your wedding day. For example, photo booths are becoming increasingly popular, and the props used can make the basis for your wedding theme. Props that represent the bride and groom’s personalities are great plus and can add some real color and interesting poses to the wedding photographs. Make sure to have tonnes of moustaches, luscious lips and top hats to finish off the theatrics! Transform the props into design ideas that can be incorporated throughout the wedding stationery, table decorations, etc.

2. Make It Posh: Candles and chandeliers are huge this wedding season and can add a mood and aristocracy to the reception. For outside events use hanging glass candle jars, Christmas lights and chandeliers dangling from the trees. Indoors, take advantage of high ceilings with extra special crystal chandeliers or create an indoor canopy of lights. Indoors or outdoors, be sure to suspend candles from tall floral arrangements or cluster candles in groups.

3. Make It…Pork?: The Entrée of the Year is Pork! Surprise guests and cater to the foodies with a main course that veers away from the expected beef or chicken offerings. Whether the wedding style is fun, chic, traditional, southern-style, elegant or funky, brides across the board are demanding elegant, restaurant quality, gourmet style menu offerings for their guests.

4. Make It Pop: The cake, that is. The dominating cake trend right now is clean and modern − with just one amazing pop of embellishment such as a bow, monogram or flower. The other major style takes the opposite tack, using eye-popping color or all-over appliqués. And finally, a traditional idea has come around again: Brides are requesting cakes that mimic wedding-dress details such as lace.

5. Make It Move: Gone are the days of the electric slide, that leads to the 1950’s set, followed by the 1980’s set, sprinkled with a few pop chart hits to get the crowd limping (or not) to the dance floor. Brides and grooms now want to mix genres and play everything from James Brown to Michael Jackson to Beyoncé in the same set and appeal to everyone at the wedding. Blending electronic music, Mumford & Sons, sexy Brazilian house and bossa nova is a refreshing change that really gets the party started. Another surprising trend is to have live musicians that play along with the DJ.

Wedding Reception Planning is as Easy as Drag and Drop

So you’re engaged?! Congratulations!!

There’s so much to consider as you make plans for spending your lives together: Where will we live? How should we divide the household chores? How can we possibly have Great Aunt Arlene and Babcia Olga in the same reception room together without words being exchanged or cake being tossed into each other’s perfectly teased and sprayed hair?

Reception seating arrangements has long been a source of concern and frustration for many a bridal couple. Striking that delicate balance between honoring particular guests with preferable seating, while being thoughtful regarding physical needs of elderly or infirmed guests, AND making sure that the “cool” people sit together, is the holy grail of wedding planning. Many a pencil eraser has been sacrificed attempting to set this plan into motion.

Now, thanks to the many wedding planning software choices available (some even free of charge), seating arrangements, as well as many of other challeneges inherent in arranging the most important day in a couple’s life, is as easy a click and drag.

Just a few tasks that are now easily organized by using wedding software are:

  • Contacts – Organize the guest list, track e-mail addresses, names of guests invited by your contacts, meals and gifts and more efficiently.
  • Invitations – customize wording according to your preferences. A unique RSVP ID can be assigned to each invitation and printed on the back of the RSVP for identification purposes in case guests do not write their names on the RSVP.
  • RSVPs– record all acceptances and regrets and compile into an attendees file.
  • Seating Arrangements – Design a seating chart with table layout features. Seating guests is like a puzzle, and creating a table layout can be like a game with seating arrangement software. Assign attendees to tables using drag-and-drop capabilities, playing with possible seating scenarios. Customizing placecards is then a snap using the software.
  • Gifts – Track engagement and wedding gifts, gift giver information, and document if and when the thank you note was sent.
  • Vendors – Many business and professionals service the average wedding. It is important to keep vendor information organized to ensure that wedding specifics are handled smoothly and professionally. Store contracts with the photographer, caterer and facilities, track floral orders, bridal salon information, sign for and receive deliveries, etc.

Taking advantage of the powerful planning tools available through wedding organizing software may not prevent Arlene and Olga from rehashing the infamous Thanksgiving incident of 1982, but it does put you on top of the many tasks that are sure to come your way when arranging your special day.

Remember, any wedding held at the Warrington Country Club includes an experienced, knowledgeable wedding coordinator who will assist you, your family and guests in having a trouble-free memorable day.  Contact us for more information on a Bucks County Wedding Reception or Call us at (215) 343-1630.
