The Reception ~ It's All About Unique Wedding Entertainment Ideas | Wedding Secrets | Scoop.it
Entertaining reception guests is the goal of many modern couples. So, I have chosen five unique wedding entertainment ideas that should impress your guests
Charisse Gravonsington's insight:

Couples are looking for ways to keep their reception guests entertained. Often, there is plenty of time when there is nothing to do. For example, during the photo sessions, guests are left to their own.

 

By offering games and other attractions, guests will find themselves having a lot of fun. Also, during the reception, not every wants to dance. By having some other form of entertainment, the night can be spectacular.

Charisse Gravonsington's insight:

Pets and weddings ... Do you think this is a good mix? Basically, I have seen very small weddings where the dogs were involved and it ended up being a very nice ceremony and lovely photo shoot.

Choosing a Band for Your Wedding Reception ~ Five Point List from a Professional

Choosing a Band for Your Wedding Reception ~ Five Point List from a Professional | Wedding Secrets | Scoop.it

Looking for a band is not just about ringing up the promoter or band manager and asking what dates are available. Have a look and see what else is important.

 


Via Matthew Warren
Charisse Gravonsington's insight:

I chose to highlight this article today today since I get so many comments from couples that they were disappointed with their band's performance.

 

Choosing a band for a wedding reception can be quite tricky. The real good performers are booked well in advance, meaning that the chances of getting the group for your specific date are slim. This puts couples in a panic situation where they often choose based on availability and price rather than competence and popularity.

 

Before you book your music band for your special day, why not have a quick read and find out what points are most important to choosing your wedding reception band?

 

These points could also be helpful in choosing the performer for the church ceremony.

Is White Really White when Choosing Your Wedding Gown ~ Know Your Whites

Is White Really White when Choosing Your Wedding Gown ~ Know Your Whites | Wedding Secrets | Scoop.it
An innovator in the industry, this multi-award winning designer label offers brides the best fit in the industry, coupled with the highest quality fabrics, Swarovski crystal hand sewn embellishments and styling that flatter a woman's figure.
Charisse Gravonsington's insight:

Most people think all whites are the same. In fact, depending on the type of fabric, the thickness of the fabric, the shading, the color process, and the shearness of the material, all whites do not mix and match.

 

It can be just as difficult to find white shoes to match your white wedding dress.

 

Maggie Sottero, one of the most famous bridal gown designers, has put together an excellent guide on the different white bridal colors.
