Organizing The Wedding Menu
Deciding the menu is a pretty simple affair. Once you've chosen your menu items, you can move on to organizing the wedding menu. By organizing I mean planning how people will sit, what your tables will look like, types of glasses. All the fine details.
Now don't let this stress you out ? it actually can be a lot of fun! Here's some tips to get you on the right track. These tips assume you are not having your meal catered and are doing all your own planning.
Decide what time you are going to have your meal at. This will tie to the time of your wedding to some degree. If you are getting married in the morning are you having lunch, brunch, or a mid afternoon meal. Afternoon wedding, are you having a super time meal, a later evening meal.
Are you going to rent your dishes? Borrow from family? Use disposable plates? Same goes for glassware and flatware. If you are having a smaller wedding you can often get good pricing on sets at discount department stores.
If you are purchasing your dishes, what is your theme? Color? Style?
What type of glasses are you going to use? Wine glasses for certain, what about coffee cups, water glasses. Again either borrow or visit a discount department store.
I recommend renting your dishes, flatware, and glasses from a catering company. The prices is usually very nominal. Everything matches, they deliver the clean dishes, after your meal you simply put the dirty dishes in the containers supplied, they pick them up and take care of cleaning them.
If you supply your own dishes, then somebody has to be prepared to do clean up. Renting dishes is simple, affordable, and lets your guests focus on enjoying your wedding.
You will also need to decide what the theme for your tables will be, what type of flowers you will use and whether you will get locally grown flowers or purchase from a florist. If you choose flowers in season in your local area you can make beautiful flower arrangements for a fraction of the cost.
What about your tables and chairs? Does the hall or facility you've rented provide them? If yes what do the charge. If they do not then you'll need to contact someone who does rent these items. If your wedding reception is small you may be able to borrow enough chairs and tables to accommodate your guests.
Tablecloths and table coverings ? you'll need to decide color and style. As well you'll have to decide what type of decorating your going to do. Your decorating and colors will have a lot to do with your general wedding theme. Fun, romantic, tropical?
The quickest way to get organized is to grab some paper and a pencil. Draw a rough diagram of the room layout, then begin sketching in your tables, how you will seat people, where you want your flowers and decorations. Once you've have a visual the rest will fall into place.
As some friends to give you a hand with decorating. Most halls will let you into the day before to complete your decorating and set up. In fact, before you rent the hall make this a pre-requisite.
Most important! Enjoy the planning ? this is your wedding, one of the biggest events of your life. There is no right or wrong, there is only what makes you happy. When your happy, your guests will relax and enjoy themselves whether they are seated at formal dining tables or around...

Balance - Wedding Budget Blues
Let's think about what goes into your wedding budget. Your caterer/banquet facility will get the lion's share of it. If you are having 150 guests (an average number) and the banquet facility charges $100 pp. (typical high-end facility in New England area - including gratuity, tax, hidden fees) - that works out to $15,000 right off the top. If you have it and want to spend it - great. If you are trying to stretch your wedding dollars, then you really need to step back. Many couples get so caught up in the facility that they spend all their budget on it and don't have enough left over for quality entertainment or wedding photos.
Slash Your Wedding Ceremony Bills
When it comes to your wedding services alone, nobody wants to spend an arm and a leg on this and still have to foot the bill for the reception. Really it depends on where you want to your wedding to be and what type of service that you are hoping to have. With careful wedding planning, you can save a small fortune!

Bridal Shower Basics
A bridal shower is an excellent way for the bride to surround herself with her closest friends and family and relax, loosen up and have some fun. The bride can also use this time to share the experiences of those that have already married, and in a general way, espouse her expectations and dreams for the new adventure she is about to enter. The bridal shower should be memorable for the bride-to-be and her guests and can be based on a particular theme, just like the wedding. Games, themes, decorations, and gifts are all important to include in the bridal shower. Many couples choose to have "couple showers," where both bride and groom are able to share the time together. Other brides choose to have their bridal showers in a creative 'themed' location ? a beautiful ocean-side resort comes to mind, for example. Using your unique ideas will help you create a distinctive setting for your event.
