Your table centerpieces at your wedding reception are an important part of your event’s look, and a great way to broadcast the theme of your wedding. Because even a small wedding can make use of many tables, these pieces can also take up a noteworthy portion of your overall decorating budget. When you look into your options for centerpieces, you can find that you have options for premade pieces as well as custom arrangements. If you have the time and the crafting skills, you can even take in original and repurposed items to craft them on your own! If you are looking for more options for decorations, or if you want to look for items you can use in crafting, make sure you check out our Bridal Garage Sale on Sunday, January 24, where a wide variety of gently used decorations will be available to you!

3 Things To Keep In Mind When Creating Wedding Invitations

Professional Photo By: Fine Art Memories

The wedding invitations that you send out should do two important things. You should make sure that they are clear, and that all of the necessary information is both present and accurate. It can also be important to make sure that they look nice, both to hold the attention of invitees and because they give you a chance to hint at the look of your wedding. People sometimes feel stressed out over the need to craft invitations for their celebration. Some of that concern is centered on the work of drafting and sending everything, but they can also worry about having the right look, and creating a card that truly stands out. If you worry that you will have trouble fitting tasks like the delivery of wedding invitations into your engagement period, talk to Texas Old Town about our All-Inclusive Wedding Package, which takes care of many important matters for the happy couple!

Using Your Wedding Website To Communicate With Guests

The information you share in your wedding invitations is obviously important, but there may be several concerns that you cannot fit into them. Wedding websites give couples more space to share both pertinent information about their upcoming event and their relationship. While you do not need to create something elaborate, the website you set up can be beneficial because it shares information covered in your invitations (which some guests may lose), and because you can discuss matters like your gift registry. One thing to remember is that some of your guests may not make use of the site you create. Do not be surprised if you occasionally have to answer questions about your upcoming wedding that are already covered online. To help with this, make sure your family and your wedding party members have information they can share on your behalf. (more…)

Should Our Ceremony Feature A Ring Bearer And Flower Girl?

While the ring bearer and flower girl roles are often featured in wedding ceremonies, many couples choose to leave these roles unfilled. These roles work well in traditional wedding events, and it can be a nice way to include younger family members or the children of close family friends in your special day. Make sure that the children you select are old enough to follow directions, as kids who are too young may have a difficult time understanding what you are asking of them. If you plan on hosting a child-free event, you can simply leave out these positions, or you can ask adult friends to join your procession to stand in for these roles. (more…)
