The Little Extras

Dollar dances and toasts have been the focal points of many weddings throughout the years. Why not set your wedding apart? Your personality will determine how unique you are willing to go, but even for more traditional weddings there are many ways to infuse some spark into your special day. Ask around to find out what friends, family members and co-workers remember most from the various weddings and receptions they have attended. Pick out the best ideas and put your own spin on them.

Candy Buffet

Many weddings feature buffet-style entrees, offering guests the chance to pick and choose exactly what they want to eat. The same type of method can be used for dessert, with a unique candy buffet that includes various types of sweets. Provide your guests mini boxes on their tables with instructions for filling them. Choose candy the color of your theme to really impress your guests. And be sure to offer various textures, types and sizes of candy within different shapes of jars and bowls to help maintain an interesting visual layout. see Extras — page 4

Photo Booths

Many professional photography studios now offer traveling services and on-site booths, providing your guests the chance to conveniently capture memories from your wedding. Most booths come equipped with fun props and backdrops, but also high-quality final products printed within seconds. Guests can take a break from the dance floor to get their pictures taken. The booths can generally fit more than five people inside. The photos serve as the perfect parting gifts and your guests will surely keep and display them.

Cocktail Hour

Having a cocktail hour can be the perfect way to break up your guests’ waiting time while you and your wedding party finish photos or other responsibilities. Schedule your cocktail hour to begin 30 minutes before you arrive at your reception site. This strategy will ensure your guests reach their destination well before you and are ready to greet your party with open arms. Cocktail hours should be dimly lit with subtle music to invite your guests to converse and interact with each other.

Doing your wedding 21st Century style Technology has infiltrated every aspect of our daily lives — even weddings. Mobile technology provides great opportunities to enhance and share your wedding day, at little or no cost to you. Social media, blogging, photosharing and more are all viable tools you should consider integrating into your wedding plans. But before you go overboard with your tech-savvy wedding, try to remember the more traditional guests likely to attend your event. Finding the perfect mix of trendy technology and old-fashioned approaches will ensure a great time for everyone.

Twitter Hashtag

Many receptions use large projection screens to display touching slideshows and videos. In the present world of Twitter hashtags becoming pronounced aspects of all largescale events, you can hook your projection screen up to a laptop and display a live feed of your Twitter hashtag. Notes of congratulations and well wishes — in 140 characters or less — will grace the screen throughout the reception.

Virtual Guests

Planning Keeping track of your various plans, design ideas and financial responsibilities can be a tough task for any bride or groom. Luckily, you have access to a sea of mobile apps ready to help you stay organized. Checklists, to-do lists and journals are just a touch away in your preferred app store. Many financial apps are also available to help you create and track your wedding budget. Some even come with alerts to let you know when you are approaching deadlines.

With families and friends spread out across the country, some guests will likely be unable to make it to your wedding. Luckily, many programs and software options exist for offering free, live video streams. Invite your guests to attend virtually through their webcam for a front-row viewing of the wedding and reception, if you choose. They won’t even have to worry about traveling or dressing up.

A spectacular wedding on a budget Caviar and valet parking isn’t right for every wedding. But scaling back doesn’t have to compromise style or fun. Separating your needs from your wants is a good starting point for planning a wedding on a budget. By thinking creatively you can utilize a thrifty approach to pull off a spectacular event.

Close the Bar

DIY Planning

Open bars may keep your guests happy but they can definitely hurt your wallet. Offer one or two free drinks per guest, or select a predetermined number of kegs. Once the free beer or wine runs out, shift the bill to your guests. Also, avoid the pricey champagne toasts, instead letting your guests toast with whatever drink they have picked up from the bar. Even unlimited soda for the kids and nondrinkers can rack up your bill in a hurry. More couples are opting to have tea, coffee, milk and juice for free, and having a cash bar. This can save a substantial amount on your budget.

Wedding planners are invaluable resources. They have executed many successful weddings and possess insider knowledge on hot trends. But they are also expensive. Some big-city planners can cost you more than $4,000 for their services. With online research and a little elbow grease, you can serve as your own planner and defray the high cost of going professional. Enlist the help of your friends to choose your colors, themes and wedding features. This will generate more ideas you may not have come up with on your own. Plan on doing most of the decorations yourself — this alone can save big money.

Wedding themes can set the mood Knock your guests for a loop with a unique, thoughtful theme to leave them talking for years to come. Subtle selections to your decorating strategy can evoke the right mood for your special day. So think creatively about how to integrate your personalities into your theme.

Table Decorations Do you have the perfect centerpiece already picked out in your mind? You may be able to enhance it with other complementary table pieces. A vase of floating candles and berries can be supplemented by other dried fruits. And be sure to offer customized parting gifts to match your colors. For your tablecloths, consider layering various textures like satin, velvet or crochet to match whatever theme you are hoping to establish. And don’t forget the napkins. Incorporate your color palette across all pieces to create a cohesive tone.

Colors

Opt for variations on traditional hues to liven up the event. Some planners ditch the seasonal-color strategy all together and choose to incorporate bright pinks or yellows to convey a cheery feeling. Flexibility is key when considering your colors.

ROSIE’S RIBS Foods Your food and drink menu is the perfect opportunity to infuse a little seasonal flair into your wedding. For fall, pheasant can be a unique replacement for the traditional chicken, beef or pork entree, while pumpkins and squash make excellent bases for soups. Is your’s a winter wedding? Use turkey and if you’re thinking spring consider fish. Seafood is great for summer along with some tropical fruits. Get creative with your drink menu, as well, but keep in mind most beers and wines go with a variety of foods and are perfect year-round.

What to look for when hiring a DJ Selecting a DJ

The success of a wedding reception is often dictated by the activities that keep guests busy. At most receptions, dancing is the primary activity. Who you hire to keep the music flowing and the guests dancing can make or break the event.

When choosing a DJ, it is important to first get recommendations from friends and family or to witness in person how the DJ has performed at a prior function. It is always better to choose a DJ who has a proven track record. It is one thing to simply play music, but a DJ will need to establish a rapport with the crowd and recognize when to liven things up to get the crowd back on the dance floor.

Why hire a DJ? One reason many couples choose a DJ is affordability. Disc jockeys are traditionally less expensive than bands, and a DJ will have access to a selection of music that spans various generations and genres. While the music is playing, a DJ may offer some type of entertainment, such as leading guests on guided dances. The DJ will also help keep the reception on track, alerting guests as to when food is served or special dances, like your first dance as a married couple, are going to happen.

The music mix Talk to the DJ about your music preferences. Together you can work out a playlist that will accommodate as many guests as possible. Remember to mention if any songs should not be played. Depending on the age of attendees, off-color songs or ones with explicit lyrics may be discouraged.

Selecting flowers for your wedding What would a wedding day be without flowers? The beauty and the aroma of fresh-cut flowers can create a welcoming atmosphere and complement the beauty and the style of a wedding wardrobe. Flowers are often the first things guests see upon arriving for the ceremony and they may even be something guests take home at the end of the night. Flowers create an air of romance and most couples want to make flowers an integral part of their wedding day. As with any decision when planning a wedding, choosing the right flowers requires some research and a basic knowledge of which flowers will convey the message and theme of your wedding. The number of colors, textures and combinations that can be created are so numerous couples may feel the decision on flower arrangements is best left to the florist. But it doesn’t take a lot of expertise to know what you want and it is important for couples to convey their feelings to the florist.

September. Get recommendations from friends as to which florist they used or find out if your wedding planner or banquet hall manager recommends a particular florist. Some catering halls have agreements with florists and they work well together. ♥ Browse magazines to get ideas of what you like. You also may be able to find a florist through an advertisement or if he or she has been featured in

Consider these tips when choosing a florist and selecting flowers. ♥ Experts advise a couple start looking for a florist at least six months before the wedding, especially if the wedding will take place during the peak season of May through

publications. Keep a scrapbook of the colors, types of flowers and arrangements, and any other ideas

that attract you so you will be able to present this information to the florist. ♥ Establish your flower budget prior to sitting down with the florist. You should expect to pay at least 8 percent of the total wedding cost on flowers. Get an estimate on the floral arrangement and then tweak your needs according to your budget. Many florists can modify arrangements and find a middle ground with regard to cost. Selecting flowers that are in-season will result in more affordable rates than if you desire exotic or out-of-season blooms. ♥ Once you’ve hired the florist, you can come up with a wedding flower worksheet establishe all of your needs. The florist may ask for specific information, such as photos of the bride’s gown as well as the colors and styles the wedding party will be wearing. The florist may want to mimic textures from the dress, such as beading, with smaller flowers or berries within the arrangement. The groom’s boutonniere is traditionally one of the flowers from the bride’s bousee flowers — page 18

A place for the guys Much akin to the man room that is becoming prevalent in homes across America, the groom lounge is carving out its place in wedding receptions. Scotch or cigar stations, and rooms adorned with leather couches and TVs are great ways to incorporate a groom lounge. Whether indoors or outdoors, lounges can be decorated in the same color scheme as the overall wedding tone, or can be laid out in a more manfriendly way. But while it is named after the groom, experts still urge men to remain attentive to the needs of their significant others on the special day. The lounge is intended mostly for male attendees to enjoy and escape the sometimes loud, uncomfortable dance floor atmosphere.

Fun and Activities

An area for video games or lawn activities offers the perfect place for a groom and wedding guests — both male and female — to blow off some steam during the reception. Lawn bowling, darts or bags provide a competitive, fun outlet on an otherwise formal day. You can really go all out with a tent-enclosed area for video gaming or shaded lawn activities.

For the male friends of grooms who come without a date, the lounge erases the awkwardness these guests may feel while everyone else dances or dines together. By providing your single friends a place to unwind during the reception, you can boost your guest count and enhance your overall wedding experience.

The Big Game

A Saturday fall wedding is likely to take place during a big college football game or major league baseball playoff matchup. Help your guests avoid their urge to sneakily check their phone every five minutes for the score of the big game by giving them a spot with a TV. Just don’t be offended if they skip the cake-cutting ceremony to watch it.

Don’t let weather inhibit your big day When planning a wedding the weather must be considered and that can be difficult to plan for months in advance. But strategic decisions and viable backup plans can make any wedding shine, no matter what the temperature or forecast happens to be. The location will drive many of your decorating and scheduling decisions. You may consider hosting your wedding and reception in the same location to cut down on the need for travel.

City Buildings Historical buildings, zoos or museums are sometimes overlooked options for unique weddings. Most of these venues are often willing to host large events and can feature awe-inspiring backdrops and features.

Destination Wedding

Warm Up

In most locations throughout the U.S., the fall and winter seasons are accompanied by dipping temperatures and chilled breezes. Spring often brings with it the potential for sudden and unexpected rain showers and summer weddings have heat to contend with, but don’t let the weather keep you from planning the perfect wedding — in- or outdoors. Consider a venue that boasts interior and exterior areas for entertaining, which would allow you the opportunity to offer a terrace cocktail hour and indoor dancing at the same reception.

Weddings on a bigger budget can ditch the weather considerations all together. Tropical destinations are ideal places for beautiful beach-side backdrops and all-inclusive receptions. With friendly staffs who are wellversed in coordinating such affairs, resorts often are the best choice for destination weddings. Tropical getaways may not be ideal for many people on your guest list, so consider inviting your closest family members and friends while still having a smaller ceremony or reception to celebrate back home.

Ask Martha: dress codes, guest lists and more Martha Stewart Weddings

Q:

Q: A:

One of our groomsmen recently announced he’s getting divorced, but his soon-to-be ex-wife and her parents have already RSVP’d yes to the wedding. How do we disinvite them and/or prevent an awkward situation?

“I know it happens all the time on ‘The Real Housewives,’ but in real life, you never withdraw an invitation you’ve already extended,” said Weddings executive editor Robin Sayers. “There’s just no gracious way to do it.” Chances are, the estranged wife and her parents will respectfully change their RSVP status. However, if they don’t, assume everyone will act like grown-ups and won’t cause any drama. Place the splitting couple as far apart from each other as possible at dinner. “To avoid surprises, let the groomsman know his ex and former in-laws are coming, that you truly value his participation in your wedding and you know he’ll have a wonderful time nonetheless,” Sayers said. “Then, stop worrying about it and concentrate on your own happy ending.”

Q:

We’re having our wedding in the evening and initially we wanted a semiformal dress code. But my fiance fell in love with a dark blue tuxedo. Can we keep our original plan or do his duds up the ante?

A:

William Abranowicz

Martha Stewart

We’re trying to keep our guest list small, but a few friends whom I won’t be able to invite to the wedding are asking about the bachelorette party and bridal shower. Can I invite them to these events but not the big day itself?

“People generally understand the desire for a small celebration. But if they’re not invited to the wedding, they often feel less charitable about buying gifts and attending events surrounding it,” explained Weddings senior editor Jaime Buerger. That’s why it’s best to work from one main guest list, asking people who appear on it (whether closest to your heart or close in proximity) to the ancillary celebrations, like your engagement and bachelorette parties, and bridal shower.

A:

Good news: There’s no such thing as an overdressed bride or groom and a blue tux adds a glamorous touch yet still works with a semiformal dress code. Plus, it can be worn with either a bow tie or a long tie. Just be sure to communicate your suggested attire to guests.

Variety is the spice of life in wedding cuisine Weddings are a celebration wherein guests look forward to the reception as much as the actual ceremony and the food served at the wedding is often highly anticipated Wedding receptions feature a bevy of different foods to tempt the palates of attendees. From appetizers served during the cocktail hour to the last crumb of cake — food plays a big role in a wedding reception. Choosing foods for a reception can take a little forethought, especially when the guest is a long one.

The first rule of

thumb is variety As much as your food budget allows, give guests the choice of what they dine on. During the cocktail hour, (if there is one) couples can play with many different tastes and offerings. For those who want to be creative, this is the time to do so. Exotic flavors can be served alongside more traditional offerings guests recognize. During the main course, give guests a few options. Most catering facilities will offer suggestions in their meal packages. Couples can typically choose to offer a meat dish, a poultry and a seafood.

Anniversary & Wedding Plates

Consider guests dietary needs It is important for couples to recognize that many people have food allergies or are on restricted diets. Couples should be mindful many people have now adopted gluten-free lifestyles, so ask about that as well. Also think about a vegetarian dish for any guests who are vegans. Ensure the meal will not be simply a bunch of garnishes and vegetable side dishes lumped together. While it may not be possible to provide for everyone’s specific requirements, it is possible to make some accommodations. When couples focus on meeting the needs of their guests, it shows they have put in the effort to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable at the wedding.

Choosing the wedding ring that ‘fits’ you Cost (The 5th C?)

The proposal is special and the engagement period is full of bliss, love and anticipation for the big day. When it’s finally here, hopefully you have planned for one of the most vital aspects of your wedding — the ring. Since the engagement ring will be paired with the wedding ring in most cases, use it as a guide to building the perfect set.

The 4

There is no cut-and-dry rule for how much to spend on wedding rings, so go into the selection process with an open mind and realistic expectations. Set a budget on what you want to spend on your rings and stick to it. Sometimes jewelers may be willing to negotiate with you on price to make sure they secure your business. Arm yourself with knowledge of various diamonds and sets.

Cs

According to the American Gem Society, the four Cs of diamonds couples should consider are cut, color, clarity and carat. Cut is the actual fashioning of the diamond and can have the greatest overall impact on the beauty of the ring. Diamonds can be found in most colors, including blue, yellow and brown, providing an opportunity to customize your ring. Most diamonds possess blemishes or inclusions,

Your Personality but generally not to the point of negatively impacting a ring’s overall clarity. The carat is the diamond’s physical weight measured in metric carats and is highly objective. Talk about the four Cs with your jeweler to find the best option for you.

Ultimately, you must feel comfortable with the jewelry you will be wearing for many years to come. If you generally do not wear a lot of jewelry, then maybe a flashy, multi-carat diamond isn’t for you. Match your rings with your personalities to make sure you don’t end up regretting your ring choice.

The dress quest

By CARA SULLIVAN Martha Stewart Weddings

If your search for the most amazing gown is starting to feel more like an off-the-rails reality show, take a deep breath. Here, the best tips for when to start, whom to bring and how to navigate styles, sales and fittings.

Start Early It takes about six to 12 months from the moment you place the order to when you can bring the gown home. It takes time for the designer to make your dress and once you receive it youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want at least three fittings each about a month apart. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re short on time, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry: For a surcharge ($50 and up), anything is possible.

Set a Budget Shopping without a cutoff point is like driving without a gas gauge â&#x20AC;&#x201D; trust us on this. Plan to spend about 10 percent of your overall budget on your dress. But consider this number a starting point. If fashion is more important to you than, say, flowers or music, increase your dress spending and scale back in other places.

Make Appointments Once you have an idea of what you want, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to schedule appointments in a few different places, including bridal shops, department stores with full-service salons and, if it fits your budget, a couture house. Most places donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t operate on a walk-in basis, so call for appointments at least two weeks in advance.

Limit Your Entourage On reality shows, brides always bring a whole crew of friends and family members. And every single time, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loads of drama â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and never the good kind. The takeaway? Less is more when it comes to companions.

Do Your Research

Before you hit the shops, think about what kind of dress you want. Keep a folder where you can stash pictures from magazines, fabric samples, ribbons and anything else you love, and SEE DRESS donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to look through Pinterest boards. ď&#x161;ź PAGE 25

Planning your perfect honeymoon After the thrill of wedding festivities die down, couples often jet off to a honeymoon retreat and begin an entirely different adventure The honeymoon may create mixed feelings, some concerning the chance to spend time alone after months of planning and a few feelings of anxiety over spending the first night together as a married couple. Wedding jitters are normal, as are honeymoon and wedding-night jitters. But just as wedding trends have changed through the years, so too, have beliefs about the wedding night. Knowing about shifting trends can alleviate some of the nervousness. After all of the hoopla of planning and enjoying the wedding, most people are exhausted. Others say they plan to stay up and relive moments of the day. Only about half of all couples think they will consummate the marriage on their wedding night. Taking the pressure off of the wedding night means the rest of the honeymoon may be filled with opportunities to be amorous. But couples may

still be filled with expectations for the perfect romantic retreat. Here are some things to think about before heading off on your honeymoon. ♥ Accept the fact most wedding nights and honeymoons aren’t exactly what’s pictured in the movies. Don’t try to live up to a Hollywood-inspired ideal or you may be let down when things don’t go your way. In other words, it may rain on your beach-side liaison. ♥ A wedding requires a lot of work. Many people find themselves to be physically exhausted afterward. Others find they are so wound up they can’t relax. When the mind or body is on adrenaline overload or completely wiped out, it’s not the ideal situation for romantic endeavors. ♥ Try to make the honeymoon stand apart from other nights by packing nice lingerie or nighttime attire so the memories will be special.

You may want to give the florist more freedom of expression with regard to reception centerpieces and flowers that adorn other areas of the room. ♥ Experienced florists will know how long it takes certain buds to open and show off their maximum beauty. Therefore, expect a florist to be working on your floral arrangements as much as a week before the wedding date — purchasing containers, cleaning flowers and waiting for certain ones to open fully. Minimize changes close to your wedding date as most things will already be started. ♥ It is possible to make your own centerpieces or bouquets if you so desire. Simplicity will work best for the novice. Think about grouping similar-hued calla lilies together for a bridal bouquet. Hydrangea and peonies are larger flowers that can easily fill up a vessel on a table as a centerpiece. White flowers will coordinate with any color scheme and could be the easiest to mix and match. White blooms include sweet pea, rose, camellia, stephanotis, narcissus, gardenia, orchid, lily of the valley, jasmine and gypsophila.

Centerpiece options abound for your nuptuals Beads and Baubles

Reception centerpieces are one of the seemingly minor, yet important details couples have to consider. The reception is a memorable night for the couple, and creating a magical experience involves setting the scene, which includes decorating tables with centerpieces. Couples frequently opt for floral centerpieces because of the versatility of flowers and the myriad of color combinations available. But couples don’t have to limit themselves to a floral centerpiece.

Filling a vase or low-profile glass bowl with beads, shells, rocks or crystals is an easy way to dress up a table. Consider pairing decorative beads with candles to have a visually appealing design.

Themed Objects

Birdhouses, watering cans, teapots, a small birdcage or other items that fit with the theme of a wedding can work well as centerpieces. A carved pumpkin or gourd fits in with a fall-timed wedding, while a sand pail may complete the look of a summer-inspired wedding.

Wildflowers

Rather than centerpieces full of exotic flowers, do-it-yourself couples can place whimsical bunches of wildflowers and fresh herbs into vases on each table.

Candles

Inexpensive and beautiful — candles impart a subtle glow to a space. Candles of varying heights will cast light on the table, and make the reception room look and feel more intimate. Place candles on a mirror or silver platter so the light of flames will reflect and disperse even more illumination.

Wedding websites help spread the word Planning a wedding is no small task and couples look forward to the day when they are no longer fretting over flowers or agonizing about menus Though weddings have become more complicated in many ways — the Internet has made some things easier for wedding planning. Perhaps nowhere is that more true than with regard to sharing information. The Internet has made it easy for couples to keep friends and family abreast of the details of their wedding. Many couples have even developed their own wedding website. Updating the site whenever they make important decisions, such as when and where the wedding will take place, where guests can stay and any other information guests might need. But before couples design their sites, it’s helpful to determine if it’s actually necessary. Couples who are planning more intimate affairs with few guests might find a website isn’t necessary. In addition, couples who are having a local wedding, in which most of the guests live in town they can probably get by without creating a site. However, couples who are planning a larger affair and/or an out-of-town wedding, and are expecting guests from all over the map can utilize the Internet to make

it easier to communicate with prospective guests. There are some things a couple should consider before setting up their site. ♥ Don’t establish the website until you have settled on a date and location for the wedding. The site can be a great way to share your story with friends and family, but its primary function is to act as a resource for guests. Once a date and location has been chosen, set up the site as soon as possible, ideally several months to a year in advance of the wedding. Doing so gives guests plenty of time to clear their schedules, and make airline and hotel reservations. ♥ When designing the site, make it easy to navigate so all the information a guest might need is readily available. Couples who are not tech-savvy can utilize an existing website — there are numerous — choose the one you find fits your event well. Some wedding website services charge a relatively small fee to keep the site running for up to a year. Couples who feel they can create a site on their own should be certain to include the date, location,

directions and maps to the event locations, hotel accommodations and wedding registry information. Those who want to go the extra mile can include photos, the story of how they met, information about members of the wedding party and a guestbook wellwishers can sign.

Don’t leave out-of-town guests stranded Couples have a lot of factors competing for attention when planning their weddings. From finding a reception venue to choosing the menu to pinpointing the perfect honeymoon destination, couples must make many decisions on their way to becoming husband and

wife. One decision that’s easily overlooked is how out-of-town guests will get around. Though couples typically will not have to pay for their guests’ transportation all weekend long, it can be considerate for couples to share a variety of transportation options with their guests prior to the big day.

Taxi Service

Public Transportation

If your wedding reception and Friday night meet-up will be taking place in close proximity to each other, then your guests may not even need to arrange for their own transportation. A taxi service to and from the airport might be all the transportation they need for the weekend. When planning activities for the weekend, make an effort to keep everything within walking distance of the hotel so your out-oftown guests won’t have to face more expenses.

This is arguably the most affordable way for guests to get around. And in larger, more densely populated cities, public transportation is often the most practical option as well. If your wedding will be taking place in a big city, provide a basic rundown of the public transportation options available, including a bus schedule or a map of the subway system. These can be linked to a wedding website or included in the welcome bag awaiting guests at the hotel. Couples getting married in a larger city may also want to choose a hotel close to public transportation so guests can easily get to and from throughout the weekend.

Shuttle Service

Whether your guests are traveling far and wide to attend your wedding or live right around the corner from the venue, it’s best to arrange for shuttle service to and from the ceremony and reception for any guests staying at the hotel. This ensures no one gets lost on the way to and from the ceremony or reception and it’s also a way to ensure guests make it home safe after a reception where alcohol may be served.

Personalizing vows adds intimacy Make time for writing Amid the bustle of dress fittings and choosing a photographer, it can be easy to put off the task of writing vows for another day. But as any writer can attest, it takes more than one draft to achieve a product you can be proud of. Mark it in on your calendar — just as you would any other appointment.

Check on guidelines

A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event, so couples want the event to be momentous and memorable. As such, many are integrating personal touches into their ceremonies and receptions to tailor weddings to their unique visions. The desire to include personalized wedding vows is a popular trend. If you’re considering this idea, first realize it may not be a simple task. That’s because you want the message conveyed to be dear to your heart, and that can be challenging when faced with the pressures and planning of a wedding. That isn’t to say writing your own vows is impossible though.

Relax

It is best to check with your officiant to confirm personalized wedding vows are allowed. During some religious ceremonies there can be lines of scripture which need to be read or certain passages required. Before you spend hours working on vows, be sure it’s allowed.

Jot down your feelings

Answer some questions about what marriage means to you and how you feel about your fiance. Try to avoid trite sayings — think from your heart and personal experiences. Think about the most important thing you want to promise your future partner. These notes can serve as a starting point for the actual vows.

Find tone

Although the day is based on love and affection, you may not feel comfortable

spouting words of adoration in front of friends and family. Feel free to tap into your unique personality. Humor can be used if it aligns with the way you normally express your affections. Be sure to weave this tone into more traditional passages to create a cohesive expression of your feelings.

Make an outline Put together all of the words and phrases you’ve jotted down into an outline to help you organize the flow of the vows, using these words as a blueprint for the vows and building upon them. Make sure the vows are concise. Aim for it to be around 1 minute in length to keep everyone engaged and the ceremony moving along.

Put everything together Draft your vows and then practice them by reading out loud. You want to avoid long sentences or anything that trips you up. Although large words may sound impressive, they could make the vows seem too academic and not necessarily heartfelt. Enlist the help of a friend or two to act as your audience to see if the vows sound good and are easily understandable.

We take care of the details with the perfect items.

Remember to express appreciation Weddings and gifts go hand-in-hand Couples who are tying the knot can expect to receive scores of gifts, ranging from simple well-wishes to cash to items listed on their registries. Because gift-giving is tradition, couples should plan on spending some time writing thank-you notes to express gratitude to the people who were kind enough to give a gift. Contrary to popular belief, couples do not have a year’s grace period to mail out thankyou notes after the gift has been received or the wedding has taken place. According to the etiquette experts at The Emily Post Institute, all thank-you cards should be written and mailed within three months of receipt of a gift. It is preferable the thank-you be written directly after receipt of the gift, but time-strapped couples may not have the opportunity to do so. However, writing a few thank-you cards every few days can alleviate having a giant pile to do later. Many couples prefer to order thank-you stationery when they order their wedding invitations. This way the paper, font and style match the original invitations. In addition, it may be less expensive to order stationery as a package. In some cases, a photography package may include thank-you notes with wallet-sized photos to include. Couples can then mail out a nice sentiment with a photo from the wed-

ding. To keep with the etiquette time frame of thank-you notes, it is important to find out when the thank-you photos and cards will arrive first from the photographer. The thank-you sentiments should not be delayed by the photographer. For those interested in less-expensive options, preprinted thank-you cards can be purchased at a stationery store. There are many designs and price points available. Remember, it is not the card itself, but the thank-you that is important.

tion permit for them to enter and access various parts of the reception room easily? ♥ Will the chairs used during the ceremony and reception be safe for all guests? Take into consideration stability of chairs, you may need a special seat brought in to accommodate guests’ specific needs. ♥ If your meal service is not plated, will easy access to food stations or buffet be available? ♥ Are the restrooms equipped to meet their needs? If the ceremony and reception are at the same location, consider how the transition will take place from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception. Be certain the guest will not have any trouble with the transition. Location of a power outlets in the room is also important. You want them to have easy access to the power should they need to recharge batteries on a electric powered chair.

Food

— continued from page 14

Thinking local or organic? Couples who have the environment in mind can choose to serve organic foods and look to catering facilities that purchase foods from local vendors and farms. If a banquet hall does not make such concessions, ask if specialty items that benefit organic and local food producers can be brought in. Some caterers will be happy to make the change, but it will likely affect the cost of the wedding package to do so.

Food on a budget Food and drink will be some of the most costly portions of a wedding and couples who are interested in keeping costs down can still offer quality foods if they make some changes. Varying the time of day the wedding is held can enable a brunch or luncheon reception. These foods are often less expensive and labor-intensive to prepare and therefore the cost savings are passed down to the couple. Some couples opt for a cocktail and hors d’oeuvres-only reception, which should be clearly indicated on the invitation so guests can plan accordingly. An informal wedding may feature only a selection of desserts and specialty liquors. This may be the least expensive option.

Forget About Size

Track Favorites Before smartphones became ubiquitous, snapping photos at appointments was a no-no. But now that it’s nearly impossible to police, most places allow it and that’s great news for brides. After all, there’s no better way to document your experience.

If you take away just one thing from this article, let it be this: No two designer size charts are created equal. If you’re a size 6 in the readyto-wear world you could be anything from a size 2 to a size 12 on planet bridal. It can be jarring to see a larger number on the order form than you’re used to, but resist the urge to get a smaller size. •Wedding Ceremony & Reception Venue Taking in a gown is •Complete Wedding & Event Packages easy; letting it out is •Guest Lodging difficult.

The great thing about most bridal salons is they’re designed to make you look (and feel) good. The lighting is flattering and the mirrors don’t distort your frame. But do put some effort into getting ready for your appointment. Just be sure to avoid spray tans and anything that could stain white fabric. You want to feel confident and beautiful in the dresses you try on.
