Inhouse Date

Summer time date. You, wear green short shorts with a white collar polo kind of top. Flat sneakers round off this look. We look at sports base movie such as football or basketball. So, we have root beer base with nuts, root beer or beer, and caramel popcorn.

Have fun.

Say Cheese

So maybe you are busy bride who does not have time. Cheese and wine reception in the late evening may do the trick for the bride on the go. So we head to small space for less 40 guests. Tables set up in a dark purple with a silver urn holding grapes. Then we need few trees with lights to make it more festive.
Explore your international culinary menu. Organize the cheese by country with small card. Then add a wine bottle in which they can ask or grab for a perfect match. So cheese, crackers, rustic breads,
fruit, and unique nuts. A bit of chocolate may round off this wedding reception.
The music. The music for this moment ranges from classical, jazz, to R and B. Include your parents or other family wedding tunes to your day for a more personalized moment.
A three hour time period is perfect for this moment.
It may take a million dollars for an event but not so much for a moment.

Gift Registries

So we are towards the end of the wedding planning process. So it is gift registry time. The history of the gift registry was a, the department store, the bride, and the guests who brought a gift and sent it to the home. Now, it is modern times, an electronic gun and a printed list is now the thing in which the guests can come, print out the list, and purchase the gift. The gift is brought to the wedding shower or wedding itself at the reception. I like the old school method of bringing the gift or mailing the gift to the home. If we flip through the etiquette book, your guests have a year after the wedding to purchase the wedding gift.
Where do we go for a gift? The options are endless.
Department store. Hello, it's aisle five. As affordable as Target or Walmart, we find, pots and pans with fun and festive dishes. Then there is glassware at JcPenny's or Macy's with a china pattern. For more options, there is great and antique looking items from Pottery Barn. Taking a list is best. Groom participation is great but  not needed but if it is Home Depot, he may be interested. They do have a gift registry.Oh, yeah, you can go online.
A bank account. Money. So if you want the money, set up the account. Then you add paypal attached to it. Then your guests can you the money instead a gift.
A donation. Do you have a favorite charity? So within your wedding invitation inform your wedding guests that you have a favorite charity you would like for them to support.
Gift Card. Set up a tree with a deep base to hold gift cards. Then have a list online on a website for various cards you would like from gas to your favorite date spot. A binder may be needed for a larger wedding to organize them.
Destination for two.  Contribution for your honeymoon is another great idea when you have the wine glasses you would ever need. With a travel agent, set up your travel gift registry. Then you can have the funds for your happily day after.
From six to four months before your big day, make a plan and implement for your wedding gifts.

The First Dance

Adore by Prince


A fun formal cocktail. We start with a mushroom soup in shot glass. A pull pork slider with spiced apples. Mini picnic fries, you can buy them out of the can. Coleslaw milk is coleslaw you made, drained, and put the flavor in milk. Lemon mini cupcakes are a great ending. To round it off, set up a section of mushrooms, apples, and carrots with simple seasoning.


Lulu.com has an adorbable dress for only $54. It is under lavish in lacy ivory lace dress which is a knee length white dress for a sweet afternoon wedding or a great brunch.
