Wedding Day Tips

Wedding Day Tips
-->Have checklists for EVERYTHING!!!

-->If a caterer is not hired, always bring extra silverware, plates, and cups.

-->The cake table must have: the cake(s), knife & cake server, gloves (for those who cut & serve cake), an actual knife/server (in case the 'wedding' ones are not doing the job fast enough), small plates, and forks. It is also a great idea to ask your baker for a small box for the top tier.

-->The guest book should be placed on a bistro table, to prevent guest from bending over to sign it. It is also acceptable to tell guests that they can return later to sign the guest book to avoid standing in a long line and being missing the processional.

-->If your family has volunteered to serve your guests in the buffet line, space the food out (to avoid crowding and accidents) and be sure to have 1 person for every dish.

-->It is always a good idea to place the drink(s) and cups on a separate table to avoid spills. You do not want your guests to juggle their plate and drink. Also, be sure to have someone serve drinks for faster service.

-->Serve the Bride and Groom first! Then the wedding party. Then the guests.
-->Allow the Bride and Groom to sit at their own special table. This will allow them a couple of minutes to rest, have a private conversation, and admire the scenery!

-->Once the ceremony has begun, do not allow anyone to enter until the Bride has met the Groom at the altar.

-->Sometimes less really is more!

-->Hire a wedding planner to oversee the above tasks.

-->Most importantly, Have Fun!
I Love Weddings!!

Ashton Loves Kenyetta

"My heart stops when you look at me."

Ashton and Kenyetta were married on September 29, 2018 amongst family and friends. My favorite part of the ceremony was when Ashton and Kenyetta said their vows to their children, sweetly professing their unconditional love to them. The love was definitely felt throughout the church. The Bride chose rose and gold for her reception colors and they turned out beautifully.

10 Ways to Save $$$$

10 Best Ways to Cut Costs {according to Mindy Weiss..with my 2 cents added}
1. Trim the guest list: the fewer guests--the fewer tables--the fewer centerpieces, the fewer expenses
2. Choose a gorgeous setting: this cuts down on the cost of decorations
3. Use a reception site that is already equipped with tables, chairs, flatware, and staff: save on delivery fees
4. Start the wedding earlier in the day: an early wedding means less food...unless you and your future spouse are foodies!
5. Limit the alcoholic offerings to wine, beer, and a signature cocktail ...or skip the alcohol altogether!
6. Move the wedding from Saturday to Sunday: or possibly to a weekday. Venues are less expensive during the week.
7. Eliminate the champagne toast: guests can raise their punch, water, or tea in your honor
8. Hire a DJ instead of a band. 
9. Opt for standard sized invitations: irregular shaped invitations cost more to ship.
10. Skip favors: unless they are spectacular, unusual, and usable. Otherwise, the…

Class of 2018!

Congratulations to the class of 2018! I had the honor of setting up a graduation dinner for my god-daughter, Madisen, who also happens to be one of the valedictorians of her class.   Graduation day brings a roller coaster of emotions for the graduates and their families. It’s a time of celebration, achievement, anxiety, and fear of the unknown.
