How to Create a Customized Wedding

(MS) More so than ever before, soon-to-be-wed couples are establishing their own traditions by looking for ways to impart a custom feel to their weddings without breaking the bank. Weddings have a tendency to be contagious, and chances are youve already been invited to a number of them this year. Did you know that according to the latest findings, 2.4 million weddings occur annually? Thats a lot of bouquet tossing and wedding band renditions of The Wind Beneath my Wings to sit through. Its no wonder most brides want their ceremony and reception to be different. So apart from choosing personal wedding songs and outlandish bridesmaids gowns, what can you do to be unique? Plenty. With a creative imagination and some internet resources, you can host a custom wedding, says Ava Jordon, an Illinois wedding planner. From personalized stationery to memorable keepsakes, there are a number of ways to put your special touch on the affair. 1. On Location: Change the setting of the wedding. Think beyond the local reception hall. Investigate a park, theater, museum or even a building rooftop. You may be able to get these venues for a steal. Also, destination weddings are growing in popularity. 2. Break the rules: Okay, so there really arent hard-set rules in weddings, except for those that your house of worship may require. Still, people become accustomed to certain traditions. Go against the norm. If the groom wants a female best man thats his prerogative. If the bride wants to ditch the white gown and wear a drop-dead-gorgeous red dress, she certainly has the right. The first dance at the reception doesnt have to be a sappy love song. Choose an up-tempo number or your favorite rock hit. Its a celebration after all. 3. Personalize stationery: Couples can show their personalities through the stationery they choose from quirky save-the-date fridge magnets to thank you notes that all form a cohesive theme. A well-designed invitation set not only establishes the mood of the event, it also informs guests of what to do and when. Most invitations can be customized. 4. Take the cake: Instead of a tiered wedding cake go for a custom creation. If youve ever tuned into the Food Network you know

that cakes can be designed in all shapes and sizes. Or maybe you prefer something even more unique? Whether a series of individual cupcakes, gourmet brownies or your favorite pie, allow your preferences to set the scene instead of feeling the need to conform. Think unique and whimsical for your wedding and definitely stand out from the crowd. Its your special day so make the most of it and enjoy and remember the day forever.

Choosing a Caterer
Choosing the right caterer is one decision couples must not take lightly, as everyone in attendance will be affected by who you choose to cater your special day. Perhaps the main thing a couple must consider when choosing a caterer is their budget. Regardless of the style of your reception, cost will likely be dictated by the type of food you choose to serve your guests. Whether you choose a sit-down dinner or buffet style, the type of food and the number of guests dictate the price. If youre unsure of what to offer your guests, ask a caterer to offer some suggestions and see if its possible to sample a few dishes from the kitchen. Many caterers are glad to do this, and it will give you a better idea of how youll be spending your money. Before choosing a caterer, it is also a good idea to reach an agreement on all fees, any extra charges or insurance and what the payment schedule will be like. Ask what the fee will be if you need to add more guests after reaching your agreement. When seeking out a caterer, you also want to see what types of decorations the caterer offers, if any. Table settings, oral arrangements for each table, and color schemes should all be discussed.

Select the Perfect Wedding Gown

Finding a wedding gown that makes you feel like a princess does not have to be stressful. In fact, it can be a whole lot of fun Even better, your dream wedding gown does not even have to cost a fortune. Really! Finding the right dress is a lot like nding Mr. Right. Many of the same rules apply: 1. Its all about the right t. Try on various styles to see what looks best and use those images you pulled as a guide. You may want to bring a pair of shoes that are about the same height as the ones youd like to wear on your wedding day but keep in mind that alterations are done after you pick a gown. Ask the person assisting you at the salon to select two or three gowns that she or he thinks would look good on you even if they arent what you had in mind. The staff members work with brides and gowns every day and have an excellent eye for what atters. 2. The gown you select should also reect the formality of your reception. If you are having an evening reception with more than 200 guests, then you can opt for a oor-length dress with a long cathedral train, according to the magazine Contemporary Bride. But daytime or semiformal brides should choose simpler dresses with chapel- orsweep-length trains that are shorter. 3. It should make you feel like a million bucks. Most people cannot afford a custom-made Christian Dior Haute Couture dress but that does not mean you have to forego designer gowns altogether. 4. Never settle for less than the best. No matter what your budget, you should always pay attention to the quality of the gown. You have to walk down an aisle, dance, and spend an entire day one of the most important days of your life in this dress. It should

be durable and t you well. Test the t as close to your wedding date as possible. Plus, this way the shop or tailor will hold your dress until almost the last minute and you dont have to worry about getting anything on it or having your husband-to-be see it before the big day!

Warmth, cordiality and intimacy are not a business theyre a way of life.
