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.

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.
