This Is How You Send Proper Wedding Invitations

Your wedding invitations are more than just pieces of paper. They are the formal introduction into your Big Day – so it is only natural to want everything about them to be perfect. Of course, their design plays a huge role – but maybe even more important than that is the way you send and address the invitations.

How to do it the proper, etiquette-friendly way? We have some tips for you – continue reading if you want to learn more.

  • Address the RSVPs with diplomacy. If you don’t want to invite plus-ones or children, make sure the guests will understand your hint (for instance, address the RSVPs with “Mr. and Mrs. X”, instead of the “X Family”, which would involve the kids too). Remember, even under these circumstances, there may still be guests who will add more people to their RSVPs – so be prepared to make some delicate phone calls.
  • Yes, you can and should invite people who can’t come. Sending them an invitation is a heartfelt way of showing them you care about their presence at your wedding. Plus, an invitation with a link to your wedding website will make it easier for these guests to send a gift if they want to.
  • Online invitations can save you a lot of money and time (not to mention they make the RSVP administration really easy). However, they are not always suitable for the actual wedding (since it will most likely be a bit more formal) – but they can work just fine for the pre-wedding events.

Your Wedding Menu NEEDS to Be Very Well Planned

Planning a Georgia wedding is almost never as easy as 1-2-3 – especially when you want to make sure every single guest will be truly happy with the experience the event offers.

Of course, food is an important element of the aforementioned experience, so you should plan a wedding menu capable of satisfying as many of your guests as possible. Here are some tips to help you do this:

  •       Serve hors d’oeuvres during the cocktail hour. Drinks on an empty stomach were never a good idea – and if you add this to the fact that a bunch of delicious snacks will actually boost everyone’s mood and energy for the big party, you have all the reasons to serve something your guests can munch on at the cocktail hour.
  •       Serve something as a late-night snack too. Your guests will get tired from all the dancing, so why not charge their batteries with a (potentially “sinful”) late-night snack? Doughnuts, Belgian fries, pizza – they can all be included in your wedding and they will definitely bring a smile on your guests’ faces.
  •     Try to accommodate everyone. Satisfying everyone with your wedding menu can be difficult – but it’s worth it. Thus, you should try to find vegetarian, lactose-free and gluten-free options for them as well. For instance, you could create separate menus for them and ask them in their RSVP what they prefer to eat – this way, they will be served with the foods that actually suit their diet.

The Most Original Wedding Dessert Bar Tips

Your wedding deserves to be completely and utterly special. Why wouldn’t it, after all? Your love story itself is a unique one – so your wedding should be one-in-a-million as well.

Serving a dessert bar is a wonderful choice if you want to sweeten up your guests and create a décor element everyone will absolutely love. We know you want to be as original as possible with this, so we’ve gathered some inspiring tips to help you create a truly remarkable wedding dessert bar. Read on to find out more.

  •       Golden cakes. Yes, you read that right – not one, but multiple smaller cakes, all dripped in gold frosting. If that doesn’t look luxurious and beautiful, then what does? Coordinate your golden cakes with sumptuous one-serving desserts and arrange them beautiful on your dessert table. Guests will definitely love it!
  •     Naked cake(s). Again, you can have one or more smaller naked cakes. Decorate your main dessert with powdered sugar, and fresh fruit or flowers. Also, coordinate your naked cake with multiple plates filled with seasonal mini pies. This hearty and cozy dessert table will get everyone’s attention!
  •     Tart cabinet. You definitely don’t have to stick to an actual table when it comes to your dessert bar. An open cabinet decorated with flowers and/or greenery, as well as filled with tart platters – now, that’s something your guests don’t see every day, so they are bound to really like it. Not to mention there’s such a large variety of tarts it’s impossible not to please everyone’s tastes!

The BEST Guestbook Idea for the Big Day

Although guestbooks are definitely not mandatory in modern Georgia weddings, many couples still choose to have them at their Big Day. There’s a very good reason for this: they are cute and they allow you to keep a heartfelt souvenir of your wedding day: the good wishes of all those who chose to celebrate with you.

It is completely understandable if you are tired of the same old-fashioned guestbook, though. But what about a unique and fun one? Here are some tips to help you create the best guestbook for your own Big Day.

  • Think of a main theme for your guestbook, this will add a bit of originality to the traditional guestbook. For example, your guestbook could be centered on date night ideas or fun games to try as a couple. It could also be a bucket list of all the places your guests would love for you to see, or the fun activities they would like you to experience.
  • You really don’t have to stick to a notebook either. Sure, it’s a good idea, especially if you pick a pretty design to go with the wedding colors – but if you want to be really unique, you can turn the old-fashioned guestbook into a piece of décor you’ll actually want to use in your new home.
  • For instance, you could ask guests to write their ideas on leaf-shaped notes and stick them to a framed tree collage. Or, if you plan on having a photo booth at your wedding, you could ask guests to create a collage with the pictures they shoot in the booth.

Millennial Guests Will Love These Things At Your Wedding

Your wedding is a big, special day for you – but it is a happy event for your guests too. Naturally, you want them to have a good time celebrating with you, regardless of how young or not-so-young they may be.

How do you make a Millennial crowd happy at a wedding, though? Well, research shows Millennials love seeing a few things at weddings – some of which are included in the list below. Read on and find out more!

  •        Good food. Who doesn’t love good food? You don’t have to be born in the 80s or 90s to love a good meal – but what makes Millennials a bit more special than their parents is the fact that they don’t care too much about the price tag of a wedding menu. Anything ranging from a fancy brunch to a table full of burgers, mac’n’cheese and pizza will do – as long as they’re fresh, well-cooked, and have a unique twist to them, of course.
  •        Quality entertainment. Millennials would much rather spend time with good music on the dance floor, rather than in a very luxurious ballroom. So, if you want something to really splurge on, focus on your wedding entertainment. The DJ, band, photo booth – they should be top-notch.
  • ·      A really romantic location. Again, it doesn’t have to be the Eiffel Tour – but your ceremony location should offer people a truly fairytale-like vibe. A garden, backyard, or even an old loft space can be gorgeously transformed if you focus on the right décor details – so don’t be afraid to let your imagination roam wild!

The Best Tips for Your Groom’s Look

We know choosing the perfect wedding gown is ultra-important for you – but so is your groom’s attire for him. How to help him choose a suit or tuxedo that’s truly right for him and the event? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  •        Formality. Your wedding’s level of formality will dictate one of the first and foremost important groom’s attire tuxedoes: whether or not he can wear a casual suit. Decide what your dress code will be and stick to it!
  •        Color. In general, the groom’s attire is coordinated with the wedding colors and with the groomsmen’s attires. This is not an absolute rule, but it’s something you might want to follow if you want your wedding pictures to look great.
  •        Fit. Those boring tuxedo fitting appointments? They’re as important for your groom as your dress fitting appointments are for you. Your groom’s suit or tuxedo should look perfect on his body – and this means it should be the perfect size too. Nothing too large, nothing too tight, nothing too odd-shaped – just clean lines, a nice design, and quality fabrics.
  •       Style. Your groom deserves to incorporate his own personality into the mix – so don’t be afraid to encourage him to wear accessories. Even a simple wristwatch can instantly change a simple black suit – not to mention fun-colored bow-ties or socks, which will look absolutely wonderful in a unique photo shoot!
