Touches of home

The family's collection of vintage blue canning jars became the theme of this April wedding.  The family even had special blue cookies made in the shape of canning jars.  It was a special touch, and was a great way to highlight something unique from their family.
What special touch from home could you use?
Events Extraordinaire can assist you in making your special day personal and memorable.

Capturing Special Moments

Capturing those fun and special moments from your wedding is easier than ever, 
especially with most people carrying their cameras or their phones with cameras.
Sharing these photos can be made easier by setting up an Instagram or Twitter account and create your personal "#".  Place signs around your reception, and encourage your guests to take pictures and share them with you.
Some wedding couples are leaving notes on the tables requesting guests "to capture the following events", and place things on the list such as 
Cake Cutting, Dad & Bride Dance, And Pictures of Everyone at your Table.
Viewing photos on line can be fun for everyone, and making a special book
of your day is easy and the books can be shared.
Ask your wedding planner for additional information on photo sharing.

Cute Baby Shower Display

Here is an example on how gifts can be displayed at a baby shower.
Everyone enjoys seeing the sweet, tiny outfits, so before the party hang a clothesline inside the party room, and assign someone to hang the clothes as you open the gifts.
Be sure to attach the cards to the outfits so you can remember who gave you what,
This idea allows guests to see the gifts, plus it adds a cute decoration to the room.
Ask your party planner for additional ideas for making your party fun and unique.
We can assist you in making the party stress-free and fun-filled.

It's not too early to start planning your special day

Though it may be a year or more away, it's not too early to start with the major portion of your planning decisions. Your wedding event specialists and locations book up early, so make those appointments and sign your contracts as early as possible. Start your planning with a location, and be open to a few dates, as many locations are booked a year or more in advance. Be flexible, if possible, and check into mid-week discounts.
Once your date and location are booked, contact your photographer, musicians or D.J.'s and caterers as soon as possible. Good wedding vendors also book up early, so don't hesitate to make those contacts early.
When choosing your wedding colors, it is suggested that you take a look at wedding attendant clothing shops for a glimpse of what colors are available for your wedding party. You can save a great deal of money if you find clothing that is available at shops, rather than needing to have clothing custom made. Since not all colors are available at all times in retail stores, you can avoid the frustration of choosing a color that may no longer be available by checking out the bridal salons in advance of making your final color decisions.
Start the planning process now, and save yourself a lot of stress later. Contact your wedding planner for ideas on decorations, favors, invitations, clothing, locations, wedding services specialists and more.
