Day #6 - Don't Forget to Capture This

Ask your photographer to take photos of your invitation suite and day-of stationery items.  These paper goods tend to be forgotten during the hustle and bustle of wedding day.  Pair the wedding invitation with your wedding bands or jewelry to make a statement photo.  Then make sure to includes these type photos within you finished wedding album to complete your love story.

Until next time...WEDologize!

Day #5 - One Forgotten Bridesmaid Duty

For the Bridesmaid - Time and time again I see it ... A stressed bride because one or many of her bridesmaids are not being supportive through the wedding planning process.  As a bridesmaid, you have the choice to accept this role in the bride's wedding or you can be a guest.  But to cause unnecessary drama during what can already be a stressful time in her life is truly unfair.  In addition to the financial obligations, it should be your goal to help the bride throughout the planning process and on wedding day.

Now for the Bride - Not all your friends have to be in line to be a bridesmaid.  It's okay to give them other roles or to have them seated as an honored guest.  Trust me, you'll thank me later.

Until next time...WEDologize!

Day #4 - Wedding Program Dual Duties

If you are having an outdoor wedding ceremony in the summer and are considering having wedding programs, why not give the program two jobs.  One job is to share the order of the ceremony, names of the wedding party, and a thank you to all attending guests.  Then the other job could be a fan so that those sitting in the summer heat can fan themselves while witnessing your nuptials.  They can easily be handed out by your hostesses and/or ushers or even be placed on the guest chairs prior to their arrival.  You and your guests will thank me later.

Until next time...WEDologize

Day #3 - Not Your Ordinary Table Number

As you think of ways to personalize your wedding day, consider being creative when it comes to the reception table numbers.  Instead of using 1, 2, 3, etc., consider naming the tables places you ave visited as a couple or some of your childhood memories.  It's those special touches that create lasting memories for not only you, but also your wedding guests. 

Should you decide only to number the tables, go the extra mile and design a table number that correlates with your stationery suite or frame the table number.  That number will show up in some of your detailed reception shots and I'd hate for you to look back on your photos and see that plastic black & white number on the silver stand.  Trust me on'll thank me later.

Until next time...WEDologize!

Day #2 - Gifting Your Guests

Giving your wedding a guests is not a must anymore.  I mean when you think about it everything you do for the wedding, from invitations to food to the open bar, is a gift.  But should you decide that giving your wedding guests a take home favor...make it edible.  I promise if the favor is edible your wedding planner will not be returning any unused or forgotten favors.

Below are some suggestions of favors that I have not seen go to waste:
  • Garrett's Popcorn
  • Customized cookies
  • Candy and dessert bars with the couple's favorite treats
  • Personalized cigars
  • Mini wine or champagne bottles
  • Chocolate dipped pretzels...heck chocolate dipped anything :)

Day #1 - Head Table Decor

Head table decor can be the simplest and least expensive decor in your wedding floral budget.  Why not re-purpose your bridal bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets???  Add a few glass vases + some floating candles along with the bouquets and watch this main table come to life.  I mean think about it, what are you going to do with the bouquets after all the wedding photos anyway :)  This will also work perfectly should you decide on a sweetheart table.  You'll thank me later when you see the savings.

Until next time...WEDologize!
