Picking the right dress for your bridesmaids can be a stressful experience. The stereotypical bridesmaid dress is sometimes a source of humor, but you can find a stylish gown for the people who stand with you at the altar. One reason selecting the right dress can be tricky is that you may have a hard time selecting one style that works for all of your bridesmaids, particularly if you have more people in your party, or if they vary considerably in height and shape. With some smart planning, and a little creativity, you can make sure your bridesmaids look great and feel confident at your wedding! One benefit to planning your event with us is that you and your bridesmaids have ample time to prepare, and your own dressing suite, as part of our standard amenities package. (more…)

Creating the right atmosphere for your wedding means more than just selecting the right decorations, planning the right catered meal, and selecting the right venue option to hold your guests. The style choices made by both bride and groom can make the formality and tone of your event clear. While the iconic bridal gown can garner more attention at the altar, you should put time and thought into what your groom wears. You can look into classic options involving the tuxedo, dress down in a suit, or go with a more casual look for an informal celebration. Your groomsmen can wear largely similar attire, though you should look for a way to distinguish the groom from his party. (more…)

We understand this, and we have venues that are designed to accommodate both larger and smaller events. While you can enjoy potential cost savings from a smaller wedding, you should put real time and effort into ensuring that your plans are ideal for an event of this size. (more…)

Your wedding may be wonderful, but you have to accept that it must end sometime. While some of your guests will depart before your night is over, you should have plans in place for the end of your wedding. The exit of the bride and groom makes for a memorable experience, but this is just one part of your night’s end that you should think about while planning your overall event. With the right touches, your guests can appreciate the way you reception wraps up. You can make plans to offer treats for your guests, and make sure your dance floor is packed until the end of the night. You should also make sure you stay on track for other reception activities, so you do not feel rushed during moments like your toast, or your bouquet toss. (more…)

Tips To Follow When You Are Ready To Announce Your Wedding

From the moment you and your partner become engaged, you can be thrilled to let everyone know about your big life change. Because news so often travels through social media, you may assume that all you need to do is change your relationship status on Facebook to effectively let everyone know what is happening, but you may want to hold off on this switch. Your close friends and family members can rightly assume that they will hear the news from you before the public does – sharing with everyone in such a public way may leave people feeling hurt. You can also find that once the news is official, people expect wedding details. While you do not need to have everything in place, you should have enough planning done to follow up with save-the-dates or invitations relatively soon after sharing your engagement. (more…)
