Simple Ways to Keep Your Winter Wedding Guests Warm

Winter is a magical time to plan a wedding.  Unless you live in a part of the world that remains warm year-round, keeping your wedding guests warm and comfortable should be on your to-do list.  If you will be getting married this winter, most of these ideas can still be done as last-minute additions to your plans.  Planning a winter wedding for next year will give you lots of time to expand on these ideas from WhereBridesGo.com and add your own personal touches. 



Warm Food
Instead of starting dinner with a salad, opt for soup instead.  Incorporating a few spicy items into your hors d'oeuvres will warm up tummies too.  Everyone enjoys eating home-style comfort foods on a cold day, so think about serving items like a gourmet mac & cheese, roast beef with gravy, mashed potatoes, and similar dishes.  

Hot Drinks
An extra touch that everyone will enjoy is a nice hot beverage.  A hot chocolate station can be filled with extras to be added to the cocoa like mini marshmallows, cinnamon st…

5 Clever Guest Book Alternatives

Traditionally at a wedding, everyone attending signs a book for the couple as a keepsake. Honestly, very few couples ever go back through this book more than once or twice. Today when many couples begin planning a wedding, they choose to do something a little more creative than the classic guest book.

When your wedding guests sign their names to something that you enjoy looking through often or can display in your home, you will get a lot more use out of it.  Each time that you see your creative guest book, it will bring back glorious memories of that very special day.  

Artwork
Painted canvases are very popular with brides and grooms.  There are a lot of great prints out there to use for a wedding.  It can be something that matches the theme of your wedding, a romantic picture, a whimsical drawing, or anything that you would love to have hanging in your home.

9 Alternatives to the Classic Wedding Cake

Wedding cakes are one of those items on a bride and groom's wedding planning checklist that you may think of as non-negotiable.  Every wedding has to have a great big, fancy cake in the center of the room for the bride and groom to cut, right?  Wrong!  If cake isn't a dessert that you particularly care for, it is silly for you to pay for something you don't really want to eat.  Wedding cakes don't come cheap.  

Even if you love cake, maybe you prefer to have a little variety on your dessert table. There is absolutely no rule saying you can't serve something else.  A table full of treats gives each guest the ability to choose their own dessert from a table full of possibilities. If you don't want to go the traditional "cake only" route, WhereBridesGo.com has a few tasty alternatives that are sure to be crowd pleasers.  



Cupcakes
Maybe you do love cake, but you want to choose multiple flavors instead of only the one or two that cake layers allow.  Cupcakes…

MYTH #1: You Should Send Your Invitations Extra Early So Your Guests Have Ample Time To Respond.

Should You Have An Engagement Party?

Who hosts the engagement party?

Why should you have one?

Is there any specific protocol or traditions that need to be observed?

Traditionally, the bride's parents host an engagement party as a chance for both sides of the family and for future wedding guests to get to know each other before the big day.
