If you would like to personalize your wedding, the following tips can assist you in your goal as you plan for your special day at Paradise Cove’s outdoor wedding venues in Fort Worth.
Personalize Your Cake
Ask your baker to recreate flowers, ruffles or other favorite features of your wedding gown and/or veil on your wedding cake.
Plan an ice bar with flowers or fruit, frozen in the bar. Lay colorful LED lights near the bottom edges, for a super cool bar during an evening reception.
Personalizing Your Wedding Program
Include a who’s who on the program, explaining your relationship to each member of the wedding party. Photos from a few your travels and adventures together, or the engagement party will be enjoyed. A favorite verse or lyrics from a song the two of you enjoy will add a touch romanticism. In addition, you can have your .wedding program printed on fans, providing a dual purpose in warm outdoor wedding venues in Fort Worth.
Substitute the Bridesmaid Bouquet
Substitute the bridesmaids’ bouquets will silk fans or parasols in your wedding colors (this one will be appreciated in an overly warm wedding ceremony at outdoor wedding venues in Fort Worth. Increase ambience in an evening ceremony with the bridesmaids carrying candles or lanterns. However, its best to use battery operated mood candles to ensure no one receives a burn from hot wax.
Personalize Your Processional Music
There is no rule that says you have to play the “The Bridal March” as you walk down the aisle. Select a favorite tune appropriate for the mood.
Write Your Own Vows
Write your own vows, and listen to your heart, saying what you feel. Think of today, tomorrow and the golden years to come.
Blown glass, and glass favors are super low cost at 99 cent stores. Buy them up in wedding themes, and attach a small photo of the two of you attached with glue dots. Guests will love them, and can easily remove the photo for use in their home. However, supplies may be limited for individual themes, so start stocking them up several months prior to the wedding.
Make VIPS Feel Important
Provide colorful slip covers for chairs in one of your wedding colors. You do not have to spend a fortune to cover 200 chairs. Simply cover chairs for the VIPs among your guests, and matching ribbons or flowers on the end of aisles. In addition, place name cards to reserve seating for your VIPs.
Hand out thank you cards, personalized for guests thanking them for sharing your special day.
If the two of you are at odds on the flavor of the wedding cake, choose a different flavor for each layer, that way you and your guests get to pick their favorite. Marriage is often about compromises, this is a great way to take that first step.
Protecting food from pests can be a full time job at outdoor wedding venues in Fort Worth. Place fans with ribbon streamers in your wedding colors to keep flying pests away and brighten the display. If it is a hot day, you can bet guests will gather there!
Remember Those less Fortunate
After the wedding is over, and guests are gone, ask a family member or friend to deliver the wedding flowers to a nursing home or hospital. The flowers will continue to provide pleasure to others for days to come.
In addition, consider donating properly refrigerated leftovers to a homeless shelter. Ask ahead if they can accept them, if not invite guests to take food home with them.
