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!

May these vows and this marriage be blessed. May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah. May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm. May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise. May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter. May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear blue sky. I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage. – Jalalud’din Rumi Maryam and Matt were married on August 9, 2019 at The Olana Mansion.
