To elevate the luxury few notches, fill the bottles with green tree branches, and scatter some rose leaves on the table around the bottles.

Burlap Table Number Wine Bags

If you have decided to hold your wedding in an open space, like near the seashore or in a garden, you can use this innovative method of numbering the tables. By writing the numbers on wine burlap bags and filling them with wine bottles, your guests will surely appreciate the idea and find it a fun way to find their tables.

How to Plan an Entertaining Wedding

Tying the knot is an experience of a lifetime and has great importance to both the bride and the groom. You’ll show your love to your partner and begin an exciting marriage together. You want to have fun and want everything to go brilliantly when the day comes. However, you also want your guests to have a great time as well! So how do you make your wedding event one of the best they’ve ever been to? Learn more about how you can make your special day unforgettable and keep your guests entertained with the following guide.

Strategize Your Seating Chart

All of your relatives will most likely be present at your wedding, and this also includes your old friends, colleagues, and neighbors. You should take into account the relationships of your guests with each other when preparing the seating plan. Avoid the awkwardness of having two groups of strangers sitting in the same place and attempting small talk throughout the day. There’s nothing more uncomfortable than leaving someone stranded on their own at a table full of people they don’t know. Your friends will have a greater time when they’re sitting with mutual friends rather than your older relatives.  

It’s also highly recommended to use place cards! A place card with the guest’s name and seat number will help with organization – especially for bigger weddings. This way, you’ll have an easier time planning each table and no one will struggle trying to find their own seat.

Think Beyond the Dance Floor

It is known that almost every couple wants their wedding to be over-the-top glamorous. That’s why the majority focuses on hiring expensive entertainment like bands or singer-waiters – thinking only of the music and food. But there are some little things that can make your wedding memorable for everyone.

The wedding reception is where your guests will head after the wedding ceremony to enjoy some drinks and food. So, think about adding a sophisticated touch and creating something exceptional for your wedding that will WOW your guests. This can be anything from customized menu cards and napkins to personalized party favors.

The theme and atmosphere is just as important as the entertainment and will leave a lasting impression. Always think about your color scheme and any customizations catered towards your guests. You can also try to design your very own reception cards with a professional designer. Remember that organization is key when it comes to keeping your guests happy. While planning a wedding can be stressful, everyone will have more fun if you focus on the small details.

Wedding Party Favors For Your Guests

Wedding party favors are a time honored tradition that provides your guests with a small memento of your special day. They are normally displayed at a table for guests to pick up or handed out individually. There are also many fun ways to customize your party favors, so it’s a good idea to explore your options and look for anything unique. If you’re still stuck on what to gift to your guests, here are some tips and ideas.

Match Your Theme

If you have a specific wedding theme, your party favor containers or wrappers should reflect that. For example, if you’re having a beach wedding, choose boxes with a beautiful seaside design or an ocean blue color. At the very least, your party favors should have the same color scheme and match your aesthetics.

Edible Favors and Sweets

Opting for something edible is a popular choice that’s both simple and a nice treat for your guests. Some examples include candies, cookies, mini alcohol bottles, and much more. If you’re having a destination wedding, choosing your items or sweets based on the regional specialties can be a good place to start. It can be a traditional treat from the culture or something that originated from the area.

An alternative to packing the favor gift bags yourself is to include a self-service table or bar with your selected goodies. That way, your guests can easily pick and choose their favorites to take home with them.

Useful Gifts

Now who doesn’t love something useful? Choosing to offer useful gifts is a unique approach and your guests will be more likely to use them even after the wedding. Thoughtful options include bottle openers, shot glasses, coasters, candles, and so on. You can also think about more sustainable options like reusable straws, flower seeds, or mini succulents. Try to choose something that everyone in general will love and appreciate.

Winter Wedding Color Schemes

From icy blues and deep greens to warm browns and soft reds, the stunning colors of the winter season are limitless and provide an exquisite palette for your winter wedding invitations. There are many classic and contemporary winter color schemes to choose from, with a lot of inspiration taken from the frosty landscape and foliage of the season. Follow along in our blog as we discuss a few examples of unique, yet sophisticated color palettes for your winter wedding invitations.

Shades of Blue

As the weather cools down, the colors of summer and autumn fade into the background and the icy blues and greys of winter emerge. You can envision the light blue reflections from snow and frozen lakes, as well as deep navy from the night sky. If you are leaning towards a wintry palette for your wedding, then a blue and gray color scheme is the perfect combination. Insert hints of silver for a pop of color to your invitation to make an impression on your guests.

Emerald Hues

The hues from a deep emerald green is a strong reminder of the foliage from the winter season. Paired with gold, the combination of colors present an overall elegant and regal tone for your wedding. As for the wedding invitation, don’t forget to include gold foiling to frame any details on your card. The invitation itself is an indication of what’s to be expected at your wedding destination, so going with colors like emerald and gold will suggest that greenery and foliage will be included.

Copper Tones

Heat up your winter wedding with copper and rose gold tones. These colors are reminiscent of wood and metal materials that you can find in the colder season. Furthermore, these particular shades are ideal for weddings held in a barn or rustic inn, where you can see an abundance of warm, neutral tones. If you decide on copper for your invitation, we suggest a contrast of color for the envelope with a deep gray or black. Your wedding invitation will remain warm and inviting, but still very modern.

Tips for Reducing Wedding Planning Stress

It’s no joke that wedding planning can be complex, extensive, and stressful. While it can be a very exciting process, many couples may feel lost and unsure where to start. Everyone wants their wedding day to go perfectly and remember it for the fun of it – not for the stress. Staying organized and planning things early will prove to reduce some of that burden. Here are some stress-saving tips to make the planning process much easier!  

Set a Realistic Budget

Regardless of how big or small your wedding is, it’s best to keep track of a realistic budget. Often times, couples find themselves spending much more than they expect and underestimating the final costs. Always ask for quotes and ballpark figures when contacting vendors and scouting out wedding locations. Another thing to consider is that local weddings versus destination weddings can have a large difference in cost. Try to finalize your wedding location first before deciding on other aspects.

Your budget, location, wedding date, and guest list should be decided at least 9 to 12 months in advance. We have a convenient wedding planning checklist that you can follow along here

Consider Your Stationery and Favors Early

Deciding on a design for your invitations, reception cards, and so on can take a long time – especially if you’re trying to plan around a theme. Remember to request for samples to aide in your decision making. Once you’ve decided on a design, always look out for easy to miss typos and have more than one person double checking for you before finalizing the printing. This will save you the hassle on extra printing costs and time!

Finalize your stationery and party favors early to allow time for production and shipping. Official wedding invitations can be ordered at least 5 to 6 months before the wedding date.

Send Out Invitations at the Right Time

Timing is important and you have to ensure that your guests have ample time to both receive and respond to your invitation. Save the date cards can be ordered 9 to 12 months in advance and sent out around 6 to 8 months before the date. As your wedding day approaches, the official invitations can then be sent out 2 months ahead of time or earlier. If you’re planning a destination wedding, these can also be sent sooner to allow guests to arrange time off from work and settle their affairs.

Rely on Professional Help

You don’t have to struggle alone with the burden of planning everything. At Forever Friends, we offer convenient and streamlined customization help to assist you with creating the perfect invitations, announcement cards, and more! We offer everything from traditional and elegant designs to more colorful and trendy options.

  • Personalized Favors

Once the party is over nothing will serve as a better reminder than a couple of personalized party favors that the guests and bride-to-be can take with them to use at home. This often includes sashes, shirts, hats, glassware, pins, coasters, can coolers, and even cocktail napkins!

Planning a Bridal Shower

Bridal showers are a time honored wedding tradition typically shared with close girlfriends and family one to three months before the big day. A bridal shower is the perfect event for bringing family and friends together to celebrate the bride-to-be individually and shower her with love. Whether you’re planning a brunch or a tea party for an upcoming shower, there are several key elements that should not be overlooked!

Invitations

Once you’ve landed on a theme for the shower partner up with an invitation designer to ensure the invitations reflect the party details and desired aesthetic perfectly. Invitations should be sent out four to six weeks before the shower and contain all information guests will need including location, RSVP details, the general theme, what to bring, the beginning and end times, and any other relevant information.

https://media.theoccasionsgroup.com/is/image/TOP/3254_TWS37599zm?hei=1500&wid=1500&id=n6xaT21

Décor

Nothing will help make the day feel more special, fun, and beautiful than the décor! From balloons and tassled garlands to lace and flowers, when it comes to celebrating a bride more is always best! At bridal showers, it’s good to have plenty of on-theme signage to help minimize confusion such as yard signs and signs indicating where guests can find the gift table, bathroom, drinks, etc.

To make things more personalized, try decorating with framed baby photos of the bride, creating a picture collage in the shape of her new initials, or getting custom signs and banners made with the wedding hashtag.

Food & Drinks

When planning the food and drinks you want to serve, don’t be afraid to get creative and have a bit of fun. For a brunch themed shower, set up a mimosa bar and serve doughnuts, scones, coffee and even miniature chicken and waffles. A Paris themed shower could offer guests croissants, macaroons and French wines, cheeses and desserts.

Backdrop

Party backdrops are visually appealing focal points that can also serve as photo backdrops. It will be the go-to spot to take pictures for the day while ensuring they turn out beautifully every time. Build your own backdrop with a solid background and decorate it with a bride-to-be banner, flowers, balloons, and other on-theme décor.

Games

The most exciting part of a bridal shower is getting to play all of the games! Games can be totally personalized, generic, or a mixture of both. Common bridal shower games include scratch-off bingo, ‘how well do you know the bride,’ scavenger hunts, mad libs, and a contest to see which team can make the best wedding dress out of toilet paper.
