Fun Ideas Your Guests Will Wish They Did

I love new ideas for brides to enjoy, here is a stream of some that I find interesting. Leave fun facts about yourselves on the tables. Pin something on your bouquet like ribbons or small framed pictures of loved ones something to personalize your bouquet. Make your own Instagram hashtag that your guests can use. Not only is it fun for them, but it also allows you to see all of the pictures your guests uploaded to Instagram in one search.  A “Please Call Anyone But the Bride” list of phone numbers for your wedding party to keep stressful, last-minute problems away from the bride on her wedding day.

Unique Wedding Ideas

I have seen some pretty great wedding ideas over the years and I love the unique and original here a few for you to think about. Make your guests feel like VIP’s with welcome bags that go beyond a map and a few snacks. Stuff personalized tote bags with mini bottles of bubbly or a six-pack of a local microbrew, a gift certificate to your favorite local coffee shop and an individual “Welcome!” note from you.  Keep your guests comfortable all day by thinking ahead. Out of town guests will appreciate a custom scented soap so they don’t have to rely on the standard hotel samples. Planning on dancing in high heels? Put out baskets of flip-flops (in your wedding colors, of course) so guests can take their shoes off. Having an outdoor reception that might get breezy? Make sure guests keep warm by offering up some cozy pashminas. And for a summer outdoor ceremony in the afternoon, provide a station with spray-on sunscreen and a stack of inexpensive sunglasses.

Tips For Your Wedding

Here are a few tips to help your day be the best.

Keep Your Ceremony Brief

Don’t get us wrong, your friends and family are present at your big day to see you get married — but no one wants to watch a drawn out ceremony. Keep the actual proceedings (not including entrances and exits) around 20 minutes so you won’t lose anyone’s attention.

Choose a Personalized Program

While we’re on the topic of the ceremony, don’t forget about creating a wedding program. By personalizing this piece of stationery with interesting details about you and your groom, a breakdown of the ceremony’s proceedings, and any important information they should know (like a translation of traditional vows or that you’d prefer photos aren’t taken) you’ll capture their attention and get all of those key details across. Plus, it will keep them busy if the event runs a little late.

Family Style For Your Wedding

The hot trend for this year on food service is family style. Family style often gets the whole table working together and helping one another. I see people talking at the table discussing the food and and trying to figure out what this spice is or, “Is that purple califlower?” Family style service, for those of you who are wondering what this is, are large platters that come right to your table and you and the folks at the table help each other serve one holding the platter while the other is helping themselves…… Read More

Whidbey Accommodations

What a beautiful day on Whidbey today almost 70 degrees and a great day to tour around.  I have had the pleasure of touring our many Inns and Motels here on the island.  Today I stopped by The Saratoga Inn and The Boatyard Inn both of which are very beautiful with modern rooms and many great amenities the price point is lower than The Inn At Langley but very professional and have a lot of charm.  Today, however, I focused on some other places that are a quite a bit cheaper and also have some nice rooms.  The Langley Motel in particular has 1 really modern room with a lot of privacy and a great view, the other rooms are at a lower price point but if you’re just looking for a place to crash can fit the bill. The Harbour Inn in Freeland is quite big and the rooms are clean and while they do not have not have as many amenities as the Langley Inns, the price is right if you just need a place to sleep….

Wine For Your Wedding

Wine is the quintessential wedding alcohol thanks to champagne toasts and the natural paring of wine with dinner. If you are planning to have wine at your wedding it’s important to consider the season, time of day and type of wedding you are having. Lighter wines such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Noir are great for cocktail hour when it may be a bit hotter and then moving into dinner guests might enjoy Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah with richer meats. If you know that your guests will primarily drink wine, be sure to tailor your shopping list to account for that. It is a good idea to keep your wine list separate from your champagne list as people tend to drink more wine throughout the night and commonly only drink sparkling wine during toasts. When it comes to providing alcohol at your wedding, we always suggest to err on the side of overbuying – it’s better to have too much than not enough and most places will refund you on closed cases….
