It’s your wedding. It’s only happening once. You need to have the best. Unfortunately, “the best” costs money, something that you’re seriously lacking. Cuts will need to be made.
If your wedding participants like to imbibe, alcohol at the reception and/or during cocktail hour is probably already in your Big Binder of Wedding Plans. However, why limit the spirits to vodka cranberries or whiskey and colas? Creating a signature cocktail can make your wedding celebration all the rage and uniquely unforgettable. That is, unless, your guests over-indulge…then there may be many things forgotten.
Cocktail hour: the time after the ceremony when the wedding party and newly betrothed couple are getting millions of pictures taken while the guests sit around, listening to poorly-performed Sinatra instrumentals, eating small versions of their favorite foods, sipping away at something vaguely alcoholic to alleviate their boredom.
You’ve envisioned and planned every detail of your wedding celebration from the dress to the centerpieces. You can picture your perfectly decorated venue with all that joy just gushing out of your guests. Have you thought about what the room looks like 30 seconds after the party? Yeah, that’s not pretty and somebody has to clean it all up. Since you are planning to be out of the picture just slightly before the party ends, you’ve got to get a system in place to strike the site so that your personal fairy tale has a happy ending.
Every bride knows that without a groom there is no wedding, so he is very important to the whole process. And as vital as he is, we also know that his real job is window dressing; he is an accessory. He is there to frame you as they say in ballroom dancing… the focus is on the female in the phenomenal dress.
