Four Tips For Stunning Centerpieces by Stephen Badiali

 


IMG_9809wtmk


There are many details that go into planning a wedding reception. After you find a location for your reception, book the caterer, and hire the entertainment, your focus can turn towards other topics like wedding centerpieces.


As with all wedding details, wedding centerpieces come in a wide range of choices. From expensive and over the top to cheap and modest, you will have to search for the option that is right for you and your wedding celebration.


Set your budget and start thinking of wedding centerpiece ideas. As the saying goes, sometimes less is more, and centerpieces are no exception.


If you are having a simple, elegant wedding you would not want to have lavish, obnoxious centerpieces that excessively stand out. On the other hand if you are having an elaborate wedding affair an extremely simple centerpiece may look out of place.


C_C_Alyson_Hickey_Photography_PhotogFavs133_low-590x886


Here are four tips for finding the perfect wedding centerpiece:


  1. Look For Unique Vases or Items For Flowers: Flowers are the most popular choice for centerpieces, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be creative.

    Try finding unique vases instead of ordinary clear glass vases. There are many options including different color glass vases and unique shapes. Instead of vases you can also choose other items to hold your flowers like birdcages or fishbowls. Try adding items to the containers like stones, pearls or other objects that match your theme.

  2. Think Seasonal For Centerpiece Ideas: The season that you are getting married can spark some great, creative ideas for wedding centerpieces. For a Fall wedding consider incorporating pumpkins into your centerpieces. Options include small carved pumpkins that can double as wedding favors and pumpkins filled with flowers or candles. Summer weddings have many items that can be used for centerpieces. These include seashells, lighthouses and other nautical items. For a Winter wedding, add pine cones or holiday items.

  3. Get Creative: Think outside of the box and come up with something unique. If you have an overall theme to your wedding, try incorporating something from that theme into your centerpieces. For example, if you are getting married in a city like New York or Chicago, try tying in something unique from that city. New York is called The Big Apple, so you could somehow incorporate apples into your centerpieces.

  4. Ask a Professional: Having trouble coming up with unique ideas for your centerpieces? Ask your vendors for help. Florists, caterers and wedding planners are great resources for centerpiece ideas. They have a lot of experience and have seen a lot of things, so bounce your ideas off of them.

Planning Advice For Outdoor Weddings



Many couples may dream of having outdoor weddings. This may be because of the fact that the warm sunshine and beautiful scenery help make them happier occasions. There are many places to hold them such as gardens, beaches, or in your yard. Hosting marriage ceremonies like these, however, requires careful planning, especially because the weather cannot be controlled. Here are some ways to go around that fact:


On top of your list is the search for the best location possible. It is wiser to choose one that has both outdoor venues and indoor venues just to be on the safe side. If you get sunshine all throughout the celebration, fine. However, just in case rain starts falling, the event may be moved indoors. Renting a tent is also wise when heavy rains pour suddenly.


Before deciding on the venue, make sure you understand first its rules, such as the number of guests covered, corkage fees for bringing alcohol, whether a sound system is free or has a charge for usage, etc. Some locations may not have restrooms available which you must find out to be able to decide on renting the so called ‘port a potties.’


Holding an open-air wedding may also mean the possibility of bugs and other insects from appearing. To better take care of the problem, get the services of an exterminator and let him do his job the day before the celebration. Incorporating citronella candles in the decorations may also help eliminate the bugs while at the same time setting a more solemn mood when the wedding is done during the evening.


For decorations, nature surely has everything in place e.g. flowers, scenic views, etc. However, adding embellishments is recommended. You may have a wedding arch constructed with ribbons and flowers adorning it to serve as a focal piece. At the same time, a decorated arch will be able to give a beautiful backdrop when taking pictures. To save on costs, you may decorate the arch yourself. If budget is not a problem, you can choose to hire a florist to do the work. Some couples even take home the ceremonial arch to place in their gardens as a remembrance from their special day.


Talking to your respective caterer is also a must. Go for caterers who have experience in handling al fresco events. This is because additional equipment is needed to ensure that the food served stays warm and definitely unspoiled.


Each and every guest should also know in advance that the wedding is to be held outside for them to be able to wear something appropriate. Clothes made of lighter or thinner fabrics are best worn especially since the climate can be quite warm outside. This also applies to both the bride and groom. If the bride is wearing a gown with a train, make sure she changes into a different dress as a muddied train dragged on the ground is surely not comfortable.


Outdoor weddings are a joy to have. By considering every factor, and with proper planning, a more successful ceremony may result.

The Search For the Right Wedding Receptions - Some Tips



Here’s some great advice from Albert Lee on researching that perfect location for your wedding reception.





Most venues such as restaurants, gardens, parks, clubhouses, etc. are usually fully booked because of the practice of making advanced reservations.  This is frequently seen during popular wedding months such as December, June, and the likes. To avoid settling for what is left available, search for a location at least half a year away from the date of your marriage. Some people may even start looking and booking more than six months from their special day. Remember that marrying someone is supposed to happen only once, so holding the festivity in a place you and your partner do not like that much is a no-no.


When viewing the sites you are considering, find out not only about the different packages and rates they may have, but also the specific services that come with your chosen package. Ask also about the percentage of deposit you need to have that special spot reserved. Information about the style of centerpieces to be used, the color of the tablecloth, etc should also be asked.


The decorations are also important so you have to see to it that the place you have chosen will be all decked up satisfactorily. Ask the concerned person to show you a portfolio of previous events that have been held in that certain location. Inform the representative of whatever decoration style has captured your interest. If you have to make any customizations, ask if there is an extra charge to be paid.


You also have to view the dance floor and find out if it can hold all your guests. Dancing guests bumping into each other because of the limited space is a total disaster which you have to be careful to avoid. Ensure too that any band you hire will still have ample space to set up their musical equipment.


If you’re planning to reserve a hotel’s function room, ask the total amount of guests that may be allowed in each room as well as the price per head for you to be able to decide on which hall is the perfect choice. It is also best to contact other vendors e.g. caterers in the event that the hotel administrator is not able to provide everything you plan to have.


Having a venue booked does not mean the end of your worries. Plan thoroughly and make certain that every service or ‘materials’ you need are present. Remember that wedding receptions are also looked forward to aside from the actual saying of vows so there should be no room for even the slightest mistake.
