When you plan the look of your wedding, your focus should be on more than just how “nice” you can make everything look. This event is a celebration of the love you and your partner share, and you should try to create an experience that feels like a reflection of the two of you. The right style for your wedding can help you incorporate your personality in large and small ways. You can directly insert you and your partner into your wedding decorations with framed photos set up at your greeting table, or find subtler ways to showcase your personalities with your decorative choices.

Fitting Wedding Toasts Into Your Reception Plans

The toasts shared during your wedding afford the people closest to you and your partner the opportunity to share meaningful words about your relationship. While the speeches given can range from humorous to purely sentimental, they can be a particularly touching moment in a day already rich with feeling. As lovely as this tradition can be, it can demand some smart planning on your part if you want to make sure you have time for people to share their words during your wedding reception. In addition to making sure you have the time during your event to let your speakers share their toasts, you will want to make sure you have enough glasses of champagne (or your preferred beverage) to pass around at the right moment.

Many couples are choosing to keep their wedding events relatively casual. You may have attended more than one wedding that featured a rustic spirit, DIY decorations, and a generally relaxed atmosphere. For the right people, this can be an ideal way to celebrate, but you should not feel like a formal wedding experience has gone out of fashion! You can find that a formal outdoor wedding can feel like a truly magical experience. In fact, a formal outdoor event can be a wonderful experience for a fall or winter wedding, as the surrounding colors and cooler temperatures can help foster a formal environment. You can take additional steps to establish a formal atmosphere as you determine what food to serve, what wedding colors to feature, and by selecting preferred attire for your wedding. (more…)

Your partner is not the only person who will stand with you at the altar during your wedding ceremony. On your special day, you will both also have your wedding party members at your side to support you! Asking someone to join your event as a bridesmaid or groomsman is a testament to how much that person means to you. While you may have many individuals who feel important, it may be hard to make space for everyone in your wedding party. Should you simply add to the size of your party, and bring more people to stand with you, or is it better to make tough choices about who you should include? Before growing frustrated, remember that there are other roles you can welcome people to take, and that someone close to you will appreciate being welcomed as a guest. (more…)
