Guest Post from Wendie Aston: Eco-Friendly Plated Dinner

by admin on March 19, 2013 in Health, Logistics, Reception Traditions, Rehearsal Dinner with No Comments

In an effort to be eco-friendly and produce less waste, a plated dinner is the best option. The amount of food wasted from a buffet is enormous; most guests tend to indulge in the cocktail hour foods and may not have an appetite for a large buffet dinner.  A plated dinner ensures each guest has an adequate amount of food that is displayed beautifully.

Wedding Slide-show

by admin on December 22, 2011 in Reception Traditions, Rehearsal Dinner with No Comments

Slide-shows never get old to me.  They’re fresh because they are all different.  No matter how many slide shows have been featured at the weddings before yours and after yours, your slide-show tells a unique and riveting story.

Centerpiece Photos

One of the easiest and most fun centerpieces you can do yourself is a photo display of you and your fiancé.  You can buy photo trees or frames at most keepsake stores, or you could hang them from a vase of branches or insert them into photo coasters.  It’s easy to be creative with photos because they are personal…continued here

Food Allergies at Your Wedding

I’ve noticed an increasing awareness for guests’ food restrictions at weddings beyond the traditional vegetarian option such as making one small layer of the wedding cake gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free or [insert allergen]-free. Or something as simple as a card on the table listing allergen-friendly courses is significantly helpful.

No one expects to be individually catered to at a wedding, but if you have the capacity to address individual dietary needs of your guests, your service will be noticed and appreciated.

Wedding Toasts

by admin on May 25, 2011 in Reception Traditions, Rehearsal Dinner with No Comments

You would be surprised at how many people want to stand up at your wedding and toast to how amazing you are. I strongly encourage you to receive this! So often, those affirmations are the words of God spoken through someone He knows you will listen to. Including a time of affirmation at the rehearsal dinner is one of the most special and lasting pieces of the wedding weekend, not just for the bride and groom, but for those who need a witness of what Christ’s love is.
