Menus & Decorations

Recommended Posts

I have 2 silly questions, well at least I think they are silly. I see a lot of brides have included menus with their invites. I was thinking about doing that as well but how do I go about doing that? Did you speak with the WC for your resort? Did you do a site visit? How did you know what to put on the menu?

 

 

Also for those who traveled with their own decorations, Did your WC set things up for you or did your wedding party or a few of your family & friends have to do it for you?

In terms of the menu, you should definitely be able to get that info from your WC. If the restaurant that you're having your reception at has 1 standard menu that is used for all weddings, then have her send that to you & you can use that in your invites. Also, do you know if the entree's will be served to each guest or is it buffet style? You may want to find that out & include that as well.

 

As for decorations, I gave all that I had to my WC & she set it up. However, I suggest having a backup plan especially if you have a specific vision for your day!

To make sure that nothing gets misplaced or forgotten, you should designate a reliable friend or family member to make sure that everything is set up as you instructed. This helps in case the WC drops the ball or forgets to do something that you wanted. When you're meeting with the WC to discuss details of your day, I'd have that backup person there at the meeting too so that they know what you want & how you want anything set up.

Some brides just take the menu cards down for table decor and to continue the theme. That is all info you should have from your WC. The only reason you would need to send a menu card out with invites is if you are having a served meal and your guests have to select an entree (beef, chicken, vegetarian)

 

JustUsTwo had great advice about having a back-up plan! I really regret not having one. It may also help to give your WC a list of written instructions when you give her all of your stuff.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
