If you are a Valentine or Spring bride, you are no doubt in the throes of wedding invitations as you are reading this. There is so much to consider that it is easy to get overwhelmed. Plus, with the uncertain economy, the budget you originally set may be obsolete. Before you get discouraged, here are 3 ways that Layered Invitations can help.
The venue we settled on was terrific from the beginning. We gave them our budget and guest count and then they worked with us from there. Instead of having an expensive cocktail hour with stations, they suggested passed appetizers. I was a bit hesitant, but it worked out beautifully. Everyone spent the cocktail hour visiting with each other instead of checking out the food.
I don’t mean just the menu, but the whole event. Some couples may want a formal multi-course meal with a large guest list; others may want a quiet and cozier celebration. By talking with them, you can see if what they want is what you can afford and adapt accordingly. Even though it may be your party to plan, it is after all their celebration. So work together with the kids and with some careful planning you can host the dinner of their dreams.
There is something about actually choosing, addressing and mailing out your invitations that makes your wedding concrete–this is where you know you are really getting married. And this is where your guests will begin to feel what kind of day it is going to be. So, take your time and make this part of the wedding process creative, enjoyable and bonding for all.
A wedding ceremony is, without a doubt, the most important event surrounding a wedding. To make that ceremony perfect, many couples have a rehearsal dinner. Rehearsal dinners are not mandatory, but many couples use them to rehearse for their big day and to celebrate with friends.
