How to Have an Adults Only Wedding

It is a tricky situation to try to have people only come to your wedding as couples and leave the kids behind with a sitter.  There is no real easy or courteous way to say “leave the kids at home” without sounding like someone who hates kids.  That being said, there are some ways that you could suggest to your guests that you intend for your wedding to be only for the adults in the household.

The first thing that you could do is write the invitation to the mother and father of the child, but leave the child’s name off.  This is a nice way of saying that you would love to see mom and dad without clearly saying leave the kid behind.  You could reinforce this with a line about how much you and your future spouse look forward to having the two of them at the wedding.

One of the best ways, however, to go about not inviting kids to a wedding ceremony is to pass the word through family and friends.  Just suggesting things like the fact that alcohol will be served at the reception and dancing will be encouraged could cause some people to look for a babysitter.  The best thing you can do is send the message through other people so it is not attached to you.

Deciding on Your Honeymoon Destination

Once your wedding ceremony and reception have finally come to a close and the guests have gone their separate ways you will move on with your partner.  You will likely have already been gone by this time and you will be spending a night of wonder with your new spouse.  Once this night has come and gone you will move on to your dream honeymoon, but where will you go and what will you do?

The most important thing to remember with your honeymoon is that this is a chance for you to have a good time with your new spouse in a new world.  This is not the time for you to plan a trip with endless amounts of sight-seeing that will require a rigorous schedule and no sleep.  The entire point of the honeymoon is that you are getting some well deserved rest and relaxation after the rigors of wedding planning.

Most honeymoons wind up being either tropical or secluded in nature, depending on the type of couple that is involved.  If you want to relax under the sun with many other vacationing or honeymooning couples then you would enjoy the tropical or cruise related honeymoon.  If you are the type of couple that likes to get away from the world and just be together you may enjoy a more secluded destination like a bed and breakfast.

Three Choices for Reception Food

The type of food that you serve at your wedding reception will say a lot about the types of people that you are and what you wish to achieve in your wedding and marriage.  Most of all what you serve at your wedding reception will define the type of wedding that you have and how extravagant it is.  The following three types of reception food will give you ideas on how to accommodate your guests for different types of weddings.

  1. Confection Reception: A confection reception is a relatively new and exciting way to treat your guests to delicious sweet treats.  A confection reception will serve only dessert type dishes to your guests and promote a very new-age reception feel.
  2. Fruit and Cheese Reception: People who choose a fruit and cheese reception are not merely saying that they do not want to feed their guests.  These types of receptions are for those wishing to promote mingling and conversation in their reception.
  3. Steak, Chicken or Fish Reception: The steak, chicken or fish reception is one to appeal to the very high-end couples that want elegance in their reception.  This will show your guests that you value their presence and it promotes a classy, seated reception vibe.

Picking a Reception Hall

The decision of where to have your ceremony is tough enough when considering the simple things, but the decision of where to have the reception is almost as tough.  Many people won’t remember much about your wedding, but these same people do remember your reception and what they did.  There are always some things to keep in mind when trying to pick out a reception hall.

When you are trying to find the right reception hall it is first and foremost important to find out what the maximum capacity of the room is.  You don’t want to violate the local fire marshal’s ruling on the number of occupants so you should be aware of how many people you can have.  Once you have selected the right destination for your reception it is time to start planning the right elements to your reception.

Firstly, understand that the food that you serve in your reception is looked at as a sign of your ability to entertain and spend the right amount of money.  Next, the music will announce the difference between you and your fiancée as old people in their final years of work or young people who want to have fun.  The more of a good time you can have in your reception the better off you will be down the road.

How to Pick the Right Wedding Cake

There is a countless number of decisions to make when you are planning a wedding and almost none compare to the decision of the wedding cake.  This may seem like the simple choice of confection, but it will be something that you and your guests will remember.  In order for you to make sure that memory is a long and quality one you need to pick the right wedding cake, and here is how.

You need to start out by deciding on what you want your wedding cake to symbolize that is a part of your relationship with your future spouse.  If you are a goofy, fun couple that only wants to be known as such then your cake should reflect that with a very informal theme.  If you enjoy the traditional things in life and don’t like to rock the boat you should get the traditional tiered cake that appeals to your guest’s sense of nostalgia.

When choosing a wedding cake the taste and choice of flavor should be a secondary one at best.  Your cake needs to have the look and feel that you want because almost nobody will remember the way the cake tasted years down the road.  Also, it is important that you remember the colors of your wedding when choosing a wedding cake.  Choosing a color that clashes with your main colors will cause undo stress later on.
