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.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
