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.

Try these Lovely Wines

Ever growing in popularity, wine is fast becoming one of the most popular choices for alcoholic beverages served at Weddings. In the early New Testament times it was said that Jesus Himself blessed the wine at the wedding, turning water into wine. As the story is told there wasn’t enough wine to serve all of the guests and Jesus prayed over the water and there was plenty of wine to go around. Further scriptural references show referred to saving the best wine for later and serving the cheaper wine at the wedding first. The idea appeared to be to use the cheaper wines to warm up the guests at the party and then let them have a taste of the really good stuff. You can do the same at your celebration, serve plenty of wine spiked punch and save a bottle of champagne for the Bride and Groom toast!

Provide a Variety of Wines if You Want a More Elegant Affair

Robust flavored red wines such as Barefoot Merlot or Barefoot Cabernet are tasty and mellow at a relatively low cost of about $7 per bottle. Provide both white and red wines along with a rose’ for a lighter wine. For larger crowds try Trader Joe’s wines which are made in Napa Valley and sold at various locations across the country. These can be had for less than $5. There’s always box wines and they aren’t even cheap these days. A typical box of wine is about $11-12 per box these days. Whatever liquor you are serving at your wedding or reception The Celebration Hall will want you to use approved bartenders. This way we can help maintain safety and enjoyment for all. Be sure to inquire about these and other details with one of our Staff. The best way to reach us is via email, with most questions responded to in about a day. Feel free to give us a call as well!

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.
