Why Many Couples Prefer An Off-Season Wedding

While some couples will stick to tradition, and seek a date for their wedding that falls squarely in “wedding season,” many will explore off-season options. Off-season weddings are weddings that take place during the time of year where fewer weddings are taking place. This is often in the beginning of the year, between January and March. When you set your date around this time, you can find some unexpected advantages. One big reason people prefer weddings during this time of year is that they can find discounts on services, as there is less demand overall. You can also use the winter season to inspire a look that stands apart from those weddings that take place in the conventional warmer seasons. (more…)

Serving Options For Your Wedding Reception

The choices you make regarding what foods to serve, and what drinks to offer, are certainly important for your wedding reception. While these offerings may lack the visual appeal of your wedding cake, they are still capable of having a big impact on your guests’ overall enjoyment. Of course, your decisions are not limited to the items themselves. When it comes to offering food, you will need to decide if you want servers to bring meals to guests, or if you want to give them the ability to serve themselves. When it comes to serving drinks, many people like the idea of having an open bar available to everyone, but run into issues concerning cost. Smart compromises can help you relieve the pressure on your wallet, and keep your guests happy. (more…)

Your Wedding Rehearsal And Dinner

Your wedding rehearsal, followed by the traditional rehearsal dinner, will help shoo away butterflies over the ceremony itself. This isn’t just a relief for the happy couple – the people in your wedding party can feel better about having practiced their responsibilities during your big day, too. The rehearsal will obviously need to be attended by everyone who has a role in your wedding. During your rehearsal dinner, you will also have parents, grandparents, and siblings not in your wedding party. If you have guests who are traveling to attend your wedding, you can extend an invitation to them, or host a separate event to thank them for their attendance. Many people will host their rehearsal the day before their wedding, but this is not mandatory. (more…)
