Treating the King of Rock with Respect on Your Wedding Day

Posted by on Feb 9, 2015 in Uncategorized

There’s nothing like an Elvis Presley wedding. After all, it’s simply incredible that the biggest star in rock history would take time out of his busy schedule to marry couples. However, people in an Elvis wedding often forget their manners: perhaps they’re just shocked by his royal presence. These basic tips will help you give Elvis the respect he deserves during your wedding. Respect His Reign Elvis is a legend and it’s important to treat him with proper reverence. This includes during your wedding ceremony. Yes, he may look a little different than you last remember him. And he may be shockingly young-looking for an 80-year-old. But acting like your wedding isn’t real or disrespecting him authority might make the King angry. And like any ruler, you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. Let Him Rock Singing is what Elvis does best and he’s liable to sing significant portions of your wedding ceremony. He might even break out into an extended song and dance routine during the service. At first, this may seem strange, but it’s important to simply let Elvis rock. After all, he can’t help it: he simply loves to sing. And what couple wouldn’t love to have “Hunk of Burning Love” by the King while they have their first kiss as a married couple?

So, why not have a little fun with your outfit? Bring out your wildest leisure suit or your loudest Hawaiian shirt while Elvis croons “Blue Hawaii.” Giving the King a Little Gold Elvis may be ordained to officiate weddings, but he is a King, not a priest.

3 Fun Ways To Save On Your Wedding Reception

Posted by on Dec 18, 2014 in Uncategorized

Are you planning your wedding? Are you trying to figure out how to have a great reception on a small budget? Here are some ideas that will help turn your wedding into a budget-friendly party: Potluck: Up until recently, many after-wedding meals were done potluck. The bride’s family would supply the cake and the guests would bring the remainder of the meal. Afterwards, the leftovers would be given to the newlyweds, so that they would be freed of needing to cook meals for the first day or two of their honeymoon. Resurrect this tradition by letting your guests know that you value their presence as you and your spouse-to-be solemnize your commitments to one another and that they should bring their favorite potluck dish to share, instead of gifting you an expensive present. These kinds of wedding receptions are great for couples with established households who do not need five more toasters and a half dozen bedspreads. Cupcake cake: It’s no secret that a beautiful wedding cake can be a substantial part of the budget for many wedding receptions. Instead of spending several hundred to a thousand dollars for a large cake that guests will only get to admire briefly, consider having a small one tier wedding cake made and serving your guests cupcakes. There are many cupcake stands out there that will allow you to use the small cake as the traditional top tier, while allowing your guests to help themselves to a cupcake. Nearly all cake flavors will work well as a cupcake, so try a few bakeries until you find one willing to make cupcakes in the flavor of your dreams. Cupcakes can also allow you to offer your guests three or four flavors, something that can be difficult to pull off with a normal tiered wedding cake. Early wedding: If you’re set on having what most people consider to be a normal wedding with a regular reception, consider holding the wedding earlier in the day. Lunch or even breakfast food is usually substantially cheaper than serving everyone dinner. In addition, because most receptions happen during the dinner hour, having a catered meal at another time could save you money on more than just the food. Some catering companies may offer discounts for wedding receptions held early in the day. They may also offer discounts for booking on a particular day of the week, when they might otherwise have no...

Basic Etiquette Tips For Sharing Wedding Details Using Social Media

Posted by on Oct 28, 2014 in Uncategorized

Social media has become the main form of communication in which people share detailed information about their upcoming wedding. However, some of the information may be deemed inappropriate and should not be shared. There have been etiquette rules established to avoid upsetting vendors, the wedding planner and the bridal party. Here is a list of etiquette tips that will ensure that you avoid any backlash from posting inappropriate information about your wedding online. Posting Vendor Prices Online Avoid sharing how much you spent for a vendor’s service for your wedding or reception. Each vendor is different and their prices may vary per wedding. For this reason, It is best to leave the prices offline to avoid aggravating your vendors. For example, the photographer you use for your wedding may have given you a price break as a courtesy, and if you post those prices other potential customers will expect the same deal. Sending Wedding Invitations Online It is not considered proper etiquette to use both paper and digital invitations. Whatever type of invitations you choose, whether paper or digital, should be used for all guests. Digital invitations may be the preferred method because they can include a link for the driving directions to the wedding event as well as local area hotel information. Posting Registry Details Online If you post your registry information publicly on your social media networks your guests may think it is disrespectful and feel as if you are forcing them to bring a wedding gift. It is considered proper etiquette to provide the information about your wedding registry privately to avoid causing conflict. Typically, stores allow you to send the wedding registry announcement from their website by entering in your family and friends email information. In addition, if you are asked about your wedding registry information on one of your social media networks, consider contacting them privately to provide the details.   Create Social Media Handler As you plan for your wedding and start to share more information online, it may be beneficial to create wedding specific social media accounts for Instagram and Twitter. This will allow you to share with your friends and family things they will experience on your wedding day. It can also encourage conversation and allow you to get opinions for things like bridesmaid dresses, the dinner menu and floral arrangements. If you are unsure how to go about providing information about your wedding using social media, it may be a good idea to consult with your wedding...
