Queen Victoria wore a white satin and lace gown when she married Prince Albert in 1840.

Since then, white wedding dresses and bridal bouquets have been a top choice for weddings. Symbolizing virginity and purity, white is the most popular flower color for wedding arrangements. Simple, yet elegant, graceful and refined beauty is found in white. While the white dress is traditional, what color you wear is your choice as well as how you choose the colors of other items in your wedding. In Eastern cultures red is worn to symbolize auspiciousness and good luck. Auspiciousness is a promise of future success and happiness and prosperity. Red is a color of power and strength, the same colors of blood and fire. Although not a traditional wedding gown choice, red is often used in floral arrangements and other accentual ways. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue is the popular adage in wedding planning.
  • Blue is a very popular choice as the varying shades of blue can range from bold and dark to soft and pastel hues. Blue is the color of the sky and the sea, and stands for tranquility, calmness and stability.
  • Green is the color of grass, spring leaves and growing plants, green is a color that symbolizes new beginnings, new growth and nature.
  • Yellow symbolizes warmth and optimism; cheerful hues of yellow are often used in summer weddings celebrations.
  • Purple is a symbol of royalty, wealth and nobility. Orange is a color of warmth and energy, yet not overpowering.

Celebration Events

The Cotillion Originated in France in the 18th Century

The cotillion was created as a social dance to introduce young women to society. The traditional Cotillion, sometimes, has transitioned into a Debutante ball that presents young women to polite society. Classes in etiquette, charm and manners are taught in preparation for their introduction into society. A Cotillion can be a fun occasion with a true southern flair. A modern-day Cotillion Debutante ball can be a charity event with the parents of the debutante contributing a certain sum of money to the event and tickets being sold for attendance. These events are usually formal. They can be thrown for teenage girls 16-19 or a junior event for ages 15-16. The girls are formally introduced one by one to the audience and walked around the stage by her father who formally presents her. It is customary for debutantes to curtsy when introduced. After the father presents her she typically will have a male escort. Although there are traditional Cotillion parties, there are new ideas for theme parties as well. A movie theme using a classic such as “Gone With the Wind” or “My Fair Lady” is a fun idea. Attendees dress as the stars in the movie and the hall is decorated in the style of the period the movie was filmed in. Fundraiser events are another great way to throw a Cotillion. Corporate sponsors or non-profit sponsors can sponsor the party. Tickets can be sold to raise funds for causes such as cancer, for example. The Celebration Hall is the perfect venue for hosting your special Cotillion. The best way to reach us is via email, with most questions responded to in about a day.

There seems to be a trend suddenly for an unusual wedding date this year.

This is a rare date that falls on Tuesday, November 12, 2013 which translates 11/12/13. Bride and Grooms are known to pick dates that they hope to prove lucky, this is one such date. There is more to this idea than meets the eye. Numerologists say that the number 11, for example is significant in its meaning of a connection to angels and make wishes every time they see the number. The next consecutive date will be December 13, 2014, 12/13/14. So, if you’re determined to marry on a “consecutive date”, 11/12/13 is the closest choice. It may seem odd to pick this type of date. However, superstitious or lucky numbers often play a part in the selection of a wedding date. On the other hand, the number 13 is considered unlucky to many people and they have avoided getting married in 2013 for that very reason. There are however, ways to perhaps make your wedding date a lucky one. Some are throwing caution to the wind and challenging fate by plunging full stream ahead. These folks have made choices to decorate using “lucky” symbols such as lucky pennies, lucky horseshoes, lucky four leaf clovers and on it goes. They reason this is the luckiest day of their life as they are lucky to marry their chosen one. The Celebration Hall welcomes you to pick your lucky date and plan ahead whatever it may be.
