The Warrington Country Club is in the process of adding a brand new foyer that will impress you and your guests. The grand foyer will feature a portico that will be perfect for your guests to pull up to when entering the premises. The Greek columns and the sheer size of the portico will offer great curb appeal for the facility, and will add a “wow” factor for our clients arriving on the grounds. The new project will also be glass-encased, allowing anyone passing by to view the foyer’s contemporary interior design.

The Warrington Country Club has completed several transformations over the past year. Come See What’s New
By nature, fall was custom-made for getting’ hitched.
The brilliant colors that accentuate this special time of year– nestled between the end of the sweltering summer heat and the starkness of the winter frost are ready-made for a celebration. The rich vibrancy of fall hues of yellow, orange, burgundy and gold is a perfect launching point to create a magnificent indoor or outdoor Bucks County wedding.
As beautiful as fall is with the splendor of nature, there are certainly many challenges that must be considered when planning autumnal nuptials.
1. Variable fall weather:
- Autumn weather can be unpredictable. A warm and sunny afternoon and quickly turn down-right cold the moment the sun goes down. Prepare your bridal party for both extremes by choosing a layered ensemble. Be sure bare shoulders by the light of day can be quickly, and stylishly, covered when evening arrives. Remind your quests, via a wedding website or other forms of communication, to also be prepared for a changeable thermostat. If hosting an outdoor event, provide heating lamps or a fire pit to warm guests unaccustomed to those first blasts of chilly fall air.
- Using seasonal flowers is an elegant strategy for keeping costs down, however, be ready should an early cold-snap send your snap-dragons out-of-season in an instant. Consider switching to hardier fall favorites such as Dahlias or chrysanthemums. Take advantage of the many beautiful fall fruits and vegetables, like crabapples and ornamental cabbage, to spice up the bouquet and venue.
2. Fall is a busy time of year.
- Back to school, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and several Jewish holidays can wreak havoc on a schedule. A little research and a save-the-date announcement delivered far in advance will go a long way in accommodating as many guests as possible.
3. As picturesque as fall foliage is, ragweed can steal the show.
- Even if you or the members of your wedding party have never experienced the sneezing and watery-eyes associated with allergies, on your wedding day it is best to make like a boy scout and be prepared. This means having non-drowsy, over-the-counter antihistamine, tissues and eye drops on hand should an allergy attack arise.
4. You might want to take a pass on your mother’s pure white dress.
- A bright white dress can clash among the deep, rich colors of fall. Consider an off-white variation to take full advantage of the season. Of course the day won’t be ruined nor your vows nullified should you choose to wear bright white. Just realize that it is these kinds of details that make the aesthetics of your day go from just “lovely” to a resounding “WOW!”

Chances are astronomical that whenever a couple announces a new engagement, the conversation will swiftly turn to the breadth and width of the impending nuptials. While this knee jerk-reaction to the word “wedding” is understandable, one must remember that not every celebration of marriage must be measured in tonnage.
The wedding coordinators at the Warrington Country Club are expert in planning a Bucks County wedding of any size. A small, more intimate celebration may be more preferable to the wedding couple than the big, splashy, event-of-the-century type of affair for a variety of reasons:
1. The budget is small—fewer guests, by its very nature, cost less. Or, if the couple is determined to indulge their guests with only the finest of culinary offerings, the couple can treat fewer guests like royalty and not blow the lid off the budget.
2. Creative freedom—a small event allows the couple to customize the day and fully express who they are. This kind of personalization tends to get watered down when the numbers on the invitation list goes up.
3. Emotional connection — with fewer people to contend with, the couple can spend more of their precious time with the very people who mean the most to them. Also, the guests in attendance feel welcomed, special and more intimately connected with the couple because, well, they made the cut…
4. Everyone can play – Requesting assistance with the minor tasks that come along with planning any event is an easier ask when the event is small, as opposed to asking for help with an event resembling the size of fleet week.
5. Creating an atmosphere that celebrates the guests as much as the wedding couple – Very few people make it to the alter without a parade of people behind them who helped get them along to this stage in life. Why should this day be just about the newly married couple? Fewer guests mean everyone is celebrated. Everyone is in the pictures, everyone has a chance wish the couple well, and everyone is attendance matters.
No waiting in a reception line, no impersonal “table 7” cards – Plan an event that is personal, intimate and memorable for all in attendance.

It’s been said that love is “sweeter the second time around”, but planning a second wedding can quickly turn sour if wedding plans get off on the wrong foot. Let the professional Bucks County wedding planners of the Warrington Country Club guide you in the best customs and practices of a second wedding — so getting hitched goes without a hitch.
Here are the most frequently asked questions of encore brides and grooms:
- Q: Is it appropriate for the bride to wear white?
A: It is a myth that a re-bride cannot wear white. The beauty and freedom in the second wedding it that the bride is not bound to any particular custom or tradition. She can wear whatever looks best on her; be it ivory, cream, pink, yellow or any other color of her choice.
- Q: Should there be attendants?
A: The good news for the girlfriends of the bride is that a gaggle of identically dressed bridesmaids in a row probably seems out of place at a second wedding. That’s not to say that the bridal couple won’t benefit from the supportive presence of their children, friends, family and other loved ones. One maid of honor and one best man should probably do the trick.
- Q: Is a big splashy event tacky?
A: If the first nuptials for either party were a large, traditional occasion-to-remember style event, a splashy soirée the second time around may be too similar for comfort—especially if the first marriage ended badly. Furthermore, first weddings are often driven by the agenda (and wallets) of the couple’s parents, and frequently include many parent-inspired guests. A more mature couple, most likely footing their own bill, will probably desire a more intimate, low-key affair with the most important people of their choosing.This being said, the beauty of a second wedding is that there are no hard-and-fast rules. If either the bride or groom missed out on a big event the first time around and wants to celebrate large, there is nothing in the rule books that says they can’t.
- Q: What about the kids?
A: Absolutely include the children to the extent that they want to be involved. The best rule of thumb is to ask the children for their input, then respect their wishes and include them as much (or little) as they want to be included. There are endless ways to include the kids: a bride may have her son walk her down the aisle or have her daughter and or new step-daughter serve as the special attendant. A son may act as his father’s best man. Lighting a unity candle all together during the ceremony is a nice touch and symbolizes the blending of two families into one. Couples can incorporate “family vows” into the wedding vows during which the parents promise to love and care for their new step children. Having the new family sit together as one unit is a nice touch at the reception. Of course gift giving, before, during or after the event is always appreciated by youngsters. The point is to make the children feel important and valuable during this important time in their parents, and their own, life history.
Planning a second wedding need not be a source of anxiety. Ask the helpful wedding planners at the Warrington Country Club for guidance in making a “re-do” into the “must-do” event of a lifetime!! Call us at (215) 343-1630.
Your wedding can be anything you want it to be at the Warrington Country Club. Are you considering an Arabian Nights fantasy, a 1920’s jazz-age gala, a celebration of Irish / Chinese / French / Italian / Scottish (think kilts) heritage, a take-me-out-to-the-ballgame motif, or a hunk of burin’ love Vegas-style extravaganza? Your wedding planning partners at the Warrington Country Club are prepared to make your special day an event to remember!
Theme weddings have become all the rage, as brides and grooms increasingly seek a personalized alternative to wedding-business-as-usual. Many couples who initially consider the possibility of a themed event dismiss it out of fear of botching the delicate balance between creative and tacky. Let the expert wedding planners at the Warrington Country Club assuage your fears, develop your vision fully and take the stress and guesswork out of planning the most significant event of your life!
The popularity of wedding inspired reality television has elevated the “destination wedding” to near cult status. However, in actual reality, traveling to a far-off land is often not practical for couples, or the people they want to share their once-in-a-lifetime day with. With expert planning, an exotic island, beach or even Renaissance Faire can come to you and is as close as Bucks County!
Seasonal themes are a specialty at the Warrington Country Club. You and your guests can enjoy the best of Bucks County year-round:
- Maybe a summer family-style barbeque of grilled seasonal fair and gazpacho shooters is your speed, complete with checkered-print table linens, lush greenery and flip-flop wearing guests. Or perhaps you’re more of an elegant summer-in-Hamptons type, with a decadent meal of lobster and filet served under a canopy twinkling with outdoor lights.
- Burnt orange, rich fabrics like taffeta and brocade, and leaves (lots of them) accent your fall wedding. Guests can enjoy a rich cream soup in a small hollowed out pumpkin shell and hot apple cider while cozying up at our fireplace.
- Illuminate the drama of your winter wedding with sleek white décor, crystal and metallic accents and soft blue hues in the glow of candle light. Winter weddings were made for a formal black-tie event commemorated in black and white photography. A vodka luges ice sculpture is a fun and memorable way to thaw the frostiest reception guest and get the party started.
- The soft, romantic pastels of spring may be the traditional choice; however, an all-white wedding with a surprising “pop” of fluorescent color is the trend for fashionable spring nuptials. Romance rules in the spring, so don’t hesitate to up the ante of a spring wedding with fairy-tale-esque details such as ultra-romantic attire, layers of tulle, a meadow-full of peonies and hyacinths, and a meal consisting of tasting plates of watermelon salad, sweet pea risotto and finger sandwiches.
These suggestions are only the tip of the iceberg (hum, an ocean theme in the making, perhaps?) when it comes to the endless possibilities for your theme wedding at the Warrington Country Club.

There is certainly no risk, mid-way through the year 2012, to boldly declare that modern society embraces technology. We love it. We can’t seem to get enough of it.
Every single day it seems another product or service, which was once clearly in the domain of “bricks and mortar”, has gone the way of “click and order”. Gone are the days when the delivery of books, clothing or shoes within days of placing an order online is considered revolutionary. Now it seems almost anything can be purchased conveniently online, and received equally as conveniently on one’s doorstep in less than a week.
Of course there still exist items that one could never order online. Some things are just too specialized, too customized, just too darn important, to ever leave to the anonymity of a keyboard and screen. Some things must be experienced, touched and tried on in effort to judge the appearance and fit. Things like, say, a wedding dress–right?
Not so fast.
Brides.com has introduced an online feature whereby a bride-to-be can create a head-to-toe wedding-day look, and never leave the comfort of her home. Called “The Brides Dressing Room”, a woman can upload her own photograph, or use a body model provided, and virtually try on an endless selection of dresses searched by silhouette, price, designer and hemline. The same online feature is available to bridesmaids and the mother of the bride as well.
Once an account is established and a picture (taken against a plain-colored background while wearing form fitting attire such as a bathing suit) is uploaded, the user clicks and drags “fit points” on to the picture. These fit points determine how the dress fits the body. The fit can be adjusted simply by use of the navigation bar. Favorites can be saved to an album and shared (say it all together) on Facebook where “Friends” can weigh in on the selection.
I don’t want to sound old, cynical or in any way anti-technology, however, in my humble opinion; I believe some once-in-a-lifetime purchases deserve a trip, via motor-car or trolley, to the local mercantile.
Luckily, Brides.com believes as I do and has made it as easy as a keystroke to find the nearest store to find the virtual selection in real-life — where one can seek the assistance of a professional in the selection and fit of the most important ensembles of a lifetime.
Who knows, maybe this internet-thingy isn’t so alienating after all.

The wedding dance– It is an intimate and elegant expression of celebration, where family and guests of the elated couple move gracefully and subdued…
Oh wait, this is 2012.
The wedding dance is an uproarious, uninhibited activity where, if choreographed to perfection, can land the bride, groom and all the participants into the Top-Ten-Most-Watched-Video of the week on YouTube.
Such is the current trend in wedding dance planning for the foreseeable future. Emboldened by the granddaddy of choreographed wedding dance videos, “JK Wedding Entrance Dance” has been viewed 76, 232, 920 times since it was posted two years ago:
Make that 76,232,921 views to date.
This is not to suggest that such wedding dance classics such as the introduction of the bridal party, the bride and groom’s first dance, and the dance that has ruined more mascara, “Daddy’s Little Girl”, are no longer acceptable at the modern wedding reception. Plenty of seasoned reception guests look forward to, nay demand, the chair dance, the money dance, the chicken dance, YMCA and Celebration.
Don’t let the pressure of making your wedding an event to remember bring you stress. The wedding planning experts at the Warrington Country Club are experienced in managing the details of a perfect wedding that you will cherish forever, “Come Rain or Come Shine”.

Vintage wedding themes are trending for 2012. The 1920 decade has inspired our modern bride. Because the 1920′s were a prosperous era, social customs became more relaxed. Clothing styles reached a new revolution in fashion. The flapper dress and extravagant hats and headpieces make a beautiful and fun wedding idea.
- For an outdoor wedding, consider using vintage 1920′s sun umbrellas (or parasols) for you and your bridesmaids
- A sequined flapper dress in different colors for each one of your bridesmaids adds a chic modern edge
- For headpieces use items such as large feathers, pearls, and birdcage veils
- Use 1920′s inspired wedding invitations to set the tone for the entire wedding
