TIPS FOR A STRESS-FREE BRIDE AND GROOM
Defining the details:
I always create a “big-picture” beverage plan with every party or event. Prior to the ceremony start off with a non-alcoholic beverage like hot chocolate in the winter, a spritzer of passion fruit, mint, bitters and soda water in the summer time – don’t be shy with the garnish, it adds to the flavour!
Shoes, shoes and more shoes …
The trend for bridal shoes is stronger than ever with brides having several pairs to wear for the ceremony, first dance and evening reception. You can never have too many shoes, can you…?
If you can avoid it don’t book an early flight for the morning after your wedding, particularly if you’re planning an evening reception. Once you finally get to sleep after the excitement of the day it may be hard to wake up at 5:00am! Also bear in mind that airlines have been known to suddenly change their schedules without notice…
How about something very different and original as gifts for your guests - perhaps a beautiful sapling for them to take home and plant as a reminder of your special day?
Buffets are not always that elegant, do you really want to see your guests queuing for their food on your special day? Follow the Italian feast idea and bring the buffet to the table – you can serve a number of courses this way, unobtrusively creating a situation where guests are obliged to interact with each other.
Lights, camera, action………:
Have you thought about your lighting and special light features? The latest lighting trends allows you to be as bold or as minimalist as you wish. Crystal chandeliers suspended from trees or, if inside, above your tables and Chinese lanterns clustered above the dance floor are just some of the ideas that are currently featuring.
