From the Electric-Slide to Glee: How YouTube has Changed Wedding Dances, Forever

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.

It is Easy Being Green (If you are Bride-to-Be in Bucks or Montgomery County)

The Green movement is everywhere—in our homes, cars, supermarkets, etc. Making the decision to “live green” and choose sustainable options is important for the survival of our planet and does not necessarily need to be abandoned on the most important occasion of your life – your wedding day!!

The Warrington Country Club, the premier Montgomery County Wedding Venue, is the perfect choice for brides hoping to make her special day Outdoor Garden Wedding Ceremony - Warrington Country Club“eco-chic”. A little planning can go a long way in making an indoor or outdoor wedding as gorgeous as a conventional ceremony, saving money and the planet at the same time!

Ways to incorporate earth-friendly elements into a wedding:

  • Jewelry – Consider using recycled stones and metals to craft your own original, environmentally responsible pieces. Vintage, heirloom and antique pieces are a perfect solution to brides and grooms who may not have the confidence (or inclination) to create their own pieces.
  • Attire – More and more designers are catering to environmentally conscience brides who shun single-use, bleached wedding gowns by offering eco-couture gowns made from sustainable materials. Trends towards timeless and romantic wedding themes factor perfectly in a bride’s choice of vintage gowns for herself and her bridal party.
  • Invitations – Paper used throughout the wedding cycle, such as save-the-date cards, invitations, RSVP cards, menus, sitting cards, thank-you notes, etc., creates tons of waste and requires harsh chemicals such as bleach in the manufacturing process. Many eco-conscience couples are establishing a wedding website to communicate digitally with their guests.
  • Décor – Simply reusing floral arrangements from the wedding at the reception will greatly reduce the number of flowers needed to make the big day looking and smelling beautiful. Choosing seasonal items such as sea shells, nuts, pine cones, etc., can add personality to a table and be extremely cost effective.
  • Favors – Instead of giving trinkets and chukkas that are often unwanted and quickly forgotten, choose options that reflect your eco-sensibilities such as edibles, small potted plants or soy candles.

Warrington Country Club’s affordable Deluxe Wedding Package allows you to personalize your event and still be within your budget.  Contact us for more information or we schedule appointments 7 days a week so call 215-343-1630.

A Bucks County Fall Wedding

Fall is becoming a popular season for weddings. By bringing the beautiful rich colors into your wedding theme, you will set a tone of warmth and welcome.

Textures – Fall is all about texture – velvet, linen and ultra-suede add depth to your wedding décor.

Fall Flowers – Choose oranges, reds and browns for you fall wedding colors. But by adding a touch of white, they make these colors really pop.

Fall Wedding Cake – Instead of the traditional white cake, make the most of the season and think about a pumpkin cake or spice cake with cream cheese frosting. Or, perhaps for a lighter cake, maybe an almond lemon cake with lemon frosting.

Decorating – Of course, pumpkins can be used as centerpieces – but how about a cornucopia filled with fall apples. Remember, it’s harvest season so any grains like wheat and millet can help add to the atmosphere.

Centerpieces – For taller pieces perhaps willow branches and fall flowers – dahlias, sunflowers, calla lilies. If you want something a bit more formal, perhaps dark roses with the calla lilies.

Favors – Treat your guests to caramel apples, pumpkin spice soaps, or apple butter. Or how about a leaf-shaped bottle of maple syrup.

Warrington Country Club’s Award Winning Gardens can be the  perfect place for your photos.
