Do you remember when the only phone you had was the one at home and if someone called you and you weren’t there you missed the call?

There was no texting and driving because there were no cell phones, no internet, no social media sites. Times have certainly changed for the better in many ways.

There are sometimes though, when this technological advancement can be more of a nuisance than anything else.

One of those times is your wedding.
Can you imagine walking down the aisle in a room full of people and having a cell phone ring and God forbid, someone answer and say “hello.” If you are getting married and have the opportunity, be sure to tell your guests ahead of time how you feel about cell phones and social media at your wedding.

Can you imagine getting engaged and not having told everyone in your circle of family and friends about it yet and reading about it on FaceBook? To prevent this from happening make sure you tell everyone you want to know before posting on FaceBook about your engagement.

Changing your Facebook status is now an acceptable way to let people know your relationship status. Engaged is an option on Facebook now.

What about your wedding photos and pictures people are taking on their cell phones, what if the pictures show up on Facebook?

Consider having a web page for your wedding plans and address these subjects on your wedding page. These are only a few suggestions, there is much more to be said about this topic. Celebration Hall wants your special day to be free of annoying interruptions and aggravations.

Elegant Touches for Your Wedding Banquet Table

The big day is approaching fast and the planning is soon going to be over! Time to get ready for the best day of your life. The Celebration Hall is ready, willing, and able to help you with the details, caterers, bartenders, etc., for your event. There are so many elegant touches you can add to your wedding. Share this with your caterer for something very tasty and elegant.

Champagne Soaked Strawberries

Two very popular items combined make for a double treat that is not only attractive but tasty and unique. These lovely bites can be decorated to match your wedding color theme as well as provide a little “punch” from the champagne. They look beautiful before and after the completion of the decorating. For one jar you will need: 1 bottle of champagne 1 pkg. strawberries *washed and patted dry 1 canning jar 1 bag of white chocolate melting chips Sugar sprinkles (color to match your wedding colors) Fill the canning jar with strawberries and champagne. Allow to soak overnight at least but no more than 2 -3 days. *Note, for the purpose of decoration only a couple of jars of the strawberries in champagne have a very unique appearance and will add to your decorating.

Dipped Strawberries

Start by draining the champagne off of the strawberries, pat dry with a towel. Melt chocolate in microwave or small pan. Dip strawberries in the white chocolate for one layer, let the chocolate set for about 45 seconds or so and then dip in the sugar sprinkles (in your choice of color). These are so beautiful and tasty but do not hold up for a long period of time so do not make ahead of time more than just a couple of days.

Special Moments and Wedding Music

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. There are so many decisions to make like choosing to have your wedding at The Celebration Hall! This will be one of the best decisions you will ever make. But there are many more decisions including choosing your music!

There will be the traditional choices such as the Wedding March, the classical piece played when the bride comes down the aisle, before the wedding and after. Another popular choice is Pachabel’s Canon, Here Comes the Bride (processional), and there are non traditional choices as well. How about hiring someone to play the harp at your wedding? The harp has a distinctive sound which makes any occasion more special. The ukelele is another instrument you might consider hiring someone to play.

There are some very unique sounds from both of these instruments that can make your wedding music even more special. Bagpipes can add a special flair to your wedding day. Bagpipes music is something you might consider particularly if either of the bride or groom is Scottish or Irish. Celtic music is another great choice.

We Will Help You With Your Many Decisions

After the wedding there will be even more special musical choices to make. Often there is the father and daughter dance that gives the father of the bride a special dance with his daughter. This is a traditional dance presenting a good way to officially celebrate the daughter leaving home. A song such as “Butterfly Kisses” makes for a special dance.
