You are invited to a wedding you cannot but attend. As always, you are thinking what to wear, since you really do not know much about dresses and weddings. You know you have to wear decent clothes and jeans are somewhat out of the question, but in rest, you need some help.
The first help you have regarding your guest attire is the wedding invitation. According to it, you can find out the main issues about the wedding, which are its formality, theme and style. So, according to the aspect of the invitation the hour of the wedding ceremony and reception and the wedding venue, you know if you are going to attend a formal or less formal wedding.
However, on your wedding invitation it says that the wedding is going to start at 6 p.m. So, you need to wear proper guest attire at 6 p.m. wedding. The general guest attire for such an event is usually made of a dress or separate suit that you would wear at any other evening social event. Wear nice jewelry and do not forget the purse. As for man, a darker suit would be just fit.
Nevertheless, it can be that on the wedding invitation it would write black tie or about the wedding venue, which you know it is very fancy. In this case, the proper guest attire at 6 p.m. wedding is a long dress for her and a tux for him. According to the venue, a ball gown can also be perfect for such an event, while men should wear a tie.
But it may be that the wedding venue, even if the time is evening, would require informal guest attire at 6 p.m. wedding. In this case, you can wear something fit, something shorter or even pants, although the cocktail black dress would be just suited. Your partner can forget about the tie and tux, wear just a suit or a jacket. I do not think you could imagine wearing tux and a long dress in a backyard do you?
So, these are the clues you need to look at when you decide on your guest attire. But if ever in doubt, it is always a solution to ask someone in the wedding party about the proper guest attire at 6 p.m. wedding.
Your wedding day is approaching rapidly and all the people you wanted to be with you on this special day will come. And you would so much like to thank them all for being there with you, not only through sending them thank you cards, as the tradition is, but in person. You want to thank them at your wedding.
Usually, the one who will thank guests at the wedding is the groom, but if you want to say a big thank you to them, you can do it. However, you are beginning to question yourself how to thank guests at your wedding. There are more ways to do it, each of them matching your own personality and creativity; not to mention your budget.
One answer to the question how to thank guests at your wedding would be to do deliver a short thank you speech. If you want to do this, you should write and practice your speech before the wedding day. In this way, you would not forget to thank all those present there, your parents, your bridesmaids and you will not forget to tell a few words about your husband.
Another possibility for you to thank your guests at the wedding would be to have a thank you poem. You can either read it to them or you can write it on nice pieces of paper which you will roll in a scroll and put it next to each plate on the table. There are many thank you poems that you can use, different in style, so you can have the one that fits you the best.
But there is always the easiest way of answering this how to thank guests at your wedding question. The favors you give your guests say how much you appreciate them being with you. You can give them theme matching favors, favors that will be useful during the wedding – like mints or fans – or favors you made yourself, like homemade cookies.
As you can see, there are ways to thank your guests for coming at your wedding and each of them can be fitted to your personality, so choose the one which will make you feel good and every guest will feel the same.
Your wedding day is something beautiful, something that you wish you will never forget. But until the day comes, there are a lot of plans and little things to nicely arrange. And now, you came to realize that the tiny little things at the wedding are the ones that give you the most headaches. For example, one of your worries now is: ‘How do we let wedding guests know of money box?’
Maybe it would be better to answer the question by saying a few things about the money box, which is in fact a card box. In the USA bringing money instead of a gift has become really popular in recent years, but there are countries in Europe, for example, where only money is given at the wedding. The custom in these countries was that the bride and groom would pass by each person and collect the money in a bag. But now, the custom changed and some couples in Europe choose to have these card or money boxes.
The reasons for which couples choose to have money boxes at the weddings are very simple. First of all, it is better for everybody to collect cards or money in them; it is also safer and no card or money envelope would be misplaced. Moreover, having a money box is also a nice way of asking guests for money. If you choose a very nice money box, you nicely decorate it or you add messages to it, then your guests will feel quite comfortable and good when filling the box with cards.
Now, to answer your question, ‘How do we let wedding guests know of money box?’ the best idea is to place it next to the gift table. A second idea is to make it very attractive. As I have said above, buy a very beautiful one, in a shape that would fit your wedding theme: well, birdcage, villa, castle or anything of your liking. Another idea would be to nicely color it and add messages to it, so that people would be attracted, come, read and realize they have to put money in.
So, the question ‘How do we let wedding guests know of money box?’ has quite simple answers, all you have to do is to be creative and bring an attractive card box for your guests.
Two months before the wedding and you need to send the invitations. But you heard so many things about how to address the wedding invitations that you are very confused right now. So you are looking for the proper etiquette about addressing wedding guest invitations.
When addressing wedding guest invitations, you should prepare on your table the following: two envelopes, one outer and one inner, tissue paper, reception card, map, response envelope and response card. All these are placed inside the inner envelope and will make it easier both for you and for your guests to send their responses, so you will know for sure how many guests you will have at the wedding.
Now that you have everything prepared, you need to know the facts about addressing wedding guest formal invitations. This depends on two factors: the envelope on which you write the names and the status of your guests. As a general rule, on the outer envelope you will write the title and full name of the guest, followed by the correct address. For example, you can have: Mr. and Mrs. William Fisk (married couple); Doctor Lane Dean and Mr. Sean Dean (wife is a doctor) or Mr. and Mrs. Colin Smith (children under 18 are invited).
For the inner envelope when addressing wedding guest, the rule says that you need not write the full name, however there are a few other details that you need to include, so that the guests will know exactly who is invited to the wedding and if they can bring a date or not. For example: Mr. and Mrs. Fisk (married couple sharing the same name), Doctor Dean and Mr. Dean (wife is a doctor) or Mr. and Mrs. Smith Peter and Jane (children under eighteen). Children over eighteen should get their own invite. If the guest is single and is allowed to bring a guest, then on the inner envelope you will write: Miss/Mr. Smith and Guest.
These being said, I wish you finish quickly with writing the invitations and I hope all those you want at the wedding will respond as soon as they can, affirmatively. Make sure you write the addresses well and then go for the next step in your planning of the wedding. Good luck.11
And so your wedding day is near. There are just a few more days left and you think everything is all right. You think of your wedding day and although you hope everything would go just fine, you begin to have some questions: what if your hair goes loose? What if a guest feels bad? What if?
Well, think that these might happen to your guests as well and consider having a ‘wedding toolkit’, as I like to call it, at your guest. The best place is the restroom and the best container is a basket. Now, you need to fill these bathroom baskets for wedding guests with the necessary things.
If you do not know what bathroom baskets for wedding guests should contain, you would better think of different things that might happen during the wedding and try to come up with solutions. Then, because all of your guests will use these things, think about having travel like items and things that can be shared. So, let’s start.
For medical emergencies you could put plasters, antacids, stain remover wipes and cough drops. For toiletries, you have to cover both male and female needs, so you might think of separating these items. However, some of them could be used by both. So, body spray deodorant, one use tooth brushes, dental floss, breath mints, toothpicks, lens solution, hairspray, clear nail polish, sunblock and feminine hygiene products are some of the most common items to have in the bathroom baskets for wedding guests.
Nonetheless, there are so many other items that you could put in these bathroom baskets for wedding guests. Maybe more for women, since women have a lot more problems. So consider nail polish remover, nail files, combs, hair spray, safety pins, hair pins and a sewing kit very useful items for your guests.
These are some of the objects that your guests might need during the wedding, but I think that only looking at these you are going to have some other ideas. Now, all you need to think of is how to let your guests know the bathroom baskets for wedding guests are for them to use. Put a note next to the baskets, in verse or not, funny or more neutral and make sure they will be able to read it.11
Another wedding. It is the second, the third this summer? And you are wondering what to wear. The wedding is different from the others and you are a little bit bored of the same dresses you wore. So what do you say you look in your wardrobe and choose that floaty dress that you like so much?
It is true that for a wedding you need to dress accordingly to the theme and time of the day. In fact, the time of the day is more important. But you could dress a floaty dress for any time of the day, if you accessorize it accordingly and if you choose carefully, beginning with the fabrics, lines and colors.
A floaty dress for a wedding guest is appropriate from more reasons. The first is that it makes you feel comfortable, especially if you know the wedding is going to be a long one. Second, because it comes in different styles and fabrics. So, you can choose different styles and fabrics and still fit into the wedding scene.
For example, if you are invited to a casual wedding, a destination wedding or a wedding on a beach or in a garden, a floaty dress for a wedding guest may be made of a soft fabric like silk chiffon, linen or even cotton. The line can be very simple, A-line or pleated on the top. A knee-length or above the ankle length is just all right, while the colors are blue, green, yellow or pink. At the same time, you can wear a plain or patterned dress, usually with floral motifs.
For more formal weddings, a floaty dress for a wedding guest is an option if it better suits your silhouette. However, you will need to find more sober fabrics and more sober colors. Go for dark colors or beige; choose a nice V- or square line for the bodice. The length can be either knee-length or ankle length, but there is usually no pattern on the dress. The simpler, the more elegant.
So, if you have a floaty dress for a wedding guest, why not wear it? Just adjust to the occasion, nicely accessorize it and you will look so charming and fresh into a beautiful, floaty dress.11
There are weddings and weddings. There are small weddings and big weddings. There are weddings that you will enjoy and weddings you will never enjoy. There are weddings for the couple and there are weddings for the guests. I think that the weddings that are intended for the couple are those small weddings that people tend to enjoy nowadays.
Having 10 guests at a wedding has become a fashion nowadays. The reasons for having a small, intimate wedding are plenty. They may be related to the budget, to the number of best friends you have or they may be related to the venue of your wedding.
For number one reason I stated here, many couples begin to find it difficult to have a big wedding, so they begin narrowing down their guest list. So, they can come up with only 10 guests at a wedding when they begin asking themselves who are the ones they really like and would love to be there with them: family and a few best friend plus relatives and people they hardly know?
Another thing related to the budget is also related to the quality. In order to fit in the budget but have quality services at the wedding, people choose to have small weddings so inviting just 10 guests at a wedding is the ideal number of guests to have on your most beautiful day.
The second reason for which people choose to have 10 guests at a wedding is related to the number of best friends they have. Simply there are couples out there who have not very many friends and relatives and they would like to have only them at their wedding. They feel more comfortable only among people they really know, so this is how they choose to do it.
And the third reason for having 10 guests at a wedding is the venue. In fact, what I refer here to is the destination of the wedding. When you choose to have a destination wedding instead of a close to home wedding, then definitely you guest list is going to be very small.
A 10 guest wedding is for me, the most intimate, casual and friendly wedding you could possibly have. But this is just me and I know that other couples would prefer big weddings. What about you?11
Your wedding is approaching and you decided from the start to arrange everything by yourself. So you need to think and rethink all those little and not so little things you need to buy. Or to rent, if possible. And you have come to the beverages part. And head of the list… the champagne.
The champagne glasses for wedding guests are those fancy glasses that you need to have at your wedding and they should not miss from the wedding table. After all, they are used to make toasts for the grooms and you cannot serve champagne from paper or wine glasses. These elegant flutes for champagne are very important if you want to have the right atmosphere and the right sound during the toasting.
There are a few things about the champagne glasses for wedding guests that you should think of right now. First, their number. Each and every guest should have their own champagne glass, so buy at least one for each guest. Then, you need to have spare champagne glasses at your wedding party, just in case. Another thing that you might want to look at is the different size of your champagne glasses. They are some taller ones and they are also not so tall. Either is appropriate, but I would choose the smaller for semi-formal weddings and the taller for formal parties.
You might also want to consider what you are going to do with your champagne glasses for the wedding guests after the wedding party. If you have a big wedding, keeping all the glasses might not be a good idea. So you might give away a few of them. If you have a smaller wedding, it would be a great acquisition to keep them all. However, you can do two other things with your champagne glasses: personalize them and give them as wedding favors. In which case keep the spare glasses for yourself. Or, transform them in guest books, by letting people write on their champagne glasses with waterproof markers.
Maybe I have covered everything there was to know about champagne glasses for wedding guest or maybe I have not done it. However, these are the things that I can think of when checking on the wedding list champagne glasses for wedding guest.11
