Invite the children??

If you decide not to invite children, do not write it on your invites. Simply address the invite to the parents, omitting the children. Let word spread by mouth. 

What parts of the wedding can children be a part of?

*Junior Groomsmen/Bridesmaids/Ushers (ages 4 to 8)
*Ring Bearers (ages 4 to 8)
*Page/Train Bearer(s) (ages 6 to 9)--This English tradition usually is performed by two little boys who follow the bride down the aisle, carrying her long train. Feel free to have girl pages!
*Candle Kids (ages 9 to 12)

Alter Arrangements: Where do they stand?

Include children attendants in the altar line-up only if they are old enough to stand still comfortable for the duration of your ceremony. Otherwise, stand them behind you, in front of your older attendants, or have them sit with their parents. 

I have a child(ren) from a previous marriage/relationship. I want them to be included in my ceremony...any ideas?


  • Include them in the vows where they accept their new siblings or family.
  • Allow your child to escort you down the aisle and "give you away".
  • Allow them to read a poem, biblical verse, or prose pieces.

Mr. and Mrs. Pedersen 8.9.2019

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.

Food Terms You NEED to Know!

WEDDING RECEPTION FOOD TERMS (via: www.weddingsforaliving.com ) ANTIPASTO: (“before the meal”) traditional first course of a formal Italian meal. Unlike hors d’oeuvres, antipasto is served at the table and traditionally consists of cured meats, marinated vegetables and cheeses. BUFFET : Casual way to serve a large group of guests; a variety of dishes displayed on tables that guests can pick and choose from. Typically doesn’t work for venues with numerous small rooms. FAMILY STYLE: Platters of food are placed at each table. Wedding guests help themselves and pass the food around to one another. FRENCH SERVICE: This individualized and highly skilled type of food service is not very common in the U.S. Rather than being plated in the kitchen, white-gloved waiters prepare food table side from a single large dish or platter held by another waiter. Each guest is served individually. HORS D’ OEUVRES : (“outside the work” in French). Appetizer typically served befo

After the Ceremony, Before the Reception....Do This!

  You have exchanged rings and vows! You are done taking wedding party pictures...now what?! Before you enter the reception hall and dance the night away take a few moments to enjoy being married. After all, this is the moment that you both have been waiting for! Don't worry about your guests, they will be fine without seeing you for another 10 minutes. Take some time to be alone as a couple. Once you enter the reception doors you will be swamped with conversations, hugs, kisses, pictures, toasts, and dancing. Eat!! Sounds crazy but my husband and I did not get to eat at our reception. I remember the wait staff preparing our plates...they handed them to us...we sat at our Sweetheart Table...was about to take a bite...and then guests started talking to us! At the end of the night we realized that we only had a piece of cake (the small piece that you feed each other for the photo op) and a sip of Sprite during the toast. Have your wedding planner prepare small plates for you and your
