Everything about the wedding seems to center around the Bride.

So What’s a Groom to Do? Poor fellas, seems all the groom has to do is show up and say I do and he’s done, right? Not so, there is actually a lot for the groom to do to prepare for the big day. For both the bride and groom it is essential to know what the budget for the wedding will be.

This is one topic that needs the involvement and input from both of you.

This is big stuff. During this budgeting process the bride and the groom need to agree on how many and whom to invite to the wedding. Once the engagement is set, the groom purchases the engagement ring and usually makes the choice of wedding rings for the couple, this is an individual choice, however. Typically, the groom is responsible for obtaining the marriage license requirements and getting everything ready for making the marriage official. The groom picks his best man and groomsmen.

The tuxedos or suits are usually selected at this point as well as being fitted, etc. The family of the groom is also usually responsible for a rehearsal dinner if that is determined after the rehearsal. The full cost is typically paid by the family of the groom. The groom should also be arranging transportation to and from the wedding, renting limousines, etc., if that is the choice method. The Celebration Hall is the perfect venue for your wedding and or reception.

On your special day there are going to be guests you may not have seen for years and may not see again for many years to come. With that in mind, consider adding your own special touches to the day.

There are some very creative ideas that will enhance your wedding day.

What season of the year are you getting married in? If the fall, consider using fall colors in your decorating themes. Make flower arrangements using warm orange, bursts of yellow and fall red in centerpieces on tables, glass bowls with floating candles or flowers make beautiful arrangements. Scatter leaf shaped decorations on the food table and spread the theme of your wedding into all aspects of your decorating. Use place cards in the shape of leaves on tables steering guests to their seats. Having a beach wedding or a beach theme? Use seashells as place card holders. Small pails filled with colored sand to match your theme colors make cute decorations for tables or use them for favors for guests to take home. Fill with candies, chocolate shells, etc., for both a unique decoration and take home treat. Special wedding favors unique to your theme for guests to take home are another way to add special touch. Consider having matchbooks with bride and groom names and the date of the wedding on them for guests. Wine glass charms are another unique way you can share with your guests. Inexpensive stemware and wine charms can be purchased online in bulk very reasonably or check places like Pottery Barn, Old Time Pottery, etc. The ideas are plenteous.

There are so many customs and traditions in weddings

Where did these traditions start? Something Old, Something New The saying goes “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” The saying is believed to have originated during the Victorian era. The something old represents married guests in attendance at the wedding. Something new represents the newlyweds and the beginning of their new life together. Something borrowed represents items the bride must give back. Her mother’s wedding dress or her sister’s veil are just to name a couple. Something blue is associated with the virginity and purity of the bride. The choice of flowers the bride carries. The type of flowers the bride carries signifies her emotions towards the wedding. Roses, for instance are said to represent beauty and refinement. Sunflowers are representative of sunshine and pride. Tulips stand for the declaration of love and the perfect lover! Violets indicate modesty. While these traditions may not reflect the true feelings of brides to be, history has attached these significant feelings to the types of flowers. The Wedding Veil In olden days veils were worn by the bride because people believed they would ward off evil spirits that would ruin the ceremony. Bridesmaids were chosen to surround the bride and confuse the evil spirits as to who the bride was so they would leave her alone. The tradition of choosing bridesmaids and groomsmen is continued today but more in the spirit of sharing in the happy day for the couple and celebrating the marriage. The Rings The wedding rings, and their circular shape represent endlessness, a never ending marriage. Celebration Hall is the perfect spot for your wedding and reception.
