Cori wants to know...

simplesimplicity2112
I asked some Brides-to-Be that if they had any wedding related questions to send them to me. Below are the questions Cori had. Hopefully, they will answer some questions that have been on your mind. If not, give me a call!

Cori: "Is it ok to not have flower girls at a wedding?"

KTW: Absolutely! Usually when the flower girl arrives it signals that the Bride is about to enter. Instead of having a flower girl forewarn your guests, have the officiant to ask your guests to 'please stand'. 
          
Cori: "What's the one thing we should spend the majority of our budget on?"

KTW: Other than your dress, I would suggest food, photography, and/or music!
Think about your non-negotiable(s)? Is your dress more important than the flowers? If so, budget more for your dress and less for flowers. Do you want the best photographer that money can buy? If so, scale back on the open bar. Offer one glass of champagne for the toast and have a signature drink. *Customarily, food takes up the majority of wedding budgets*


Cori: "How many is too many when it comes to the number of people in your wedding party?"

KTW: I have been a part of a wedding that had 12 bridesmaids..I have also been a part of a wedding with just a Maid of Honor and the Best Man. I would suggest (for the sake of sanity) no more than 6 Bridesmaids and Groomsmen (MOH & BM included), 1 Flower Girl/1 Ring Bearer. But keep in mind, it is YOUR day! so Include who you want!! Just make sure that they are there to celebrate with you and not distract you with drama.

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.

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

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
