Question of the Week
Question: I am exploring the idea of having my wedding 12/31/2012, any thoughts? Will this be a hard date to find an available venue? More or less expensive than the traditional weekend wedding? Thanks!
Answer: When finding a wedding venue on a holiday, or special calendar day, you have the odds stacked both against you and for you. Believe it or not, some holidays are going to be very lite on weddings, due to guest/family conflicts. This may help you find a location on those days more readily available. On the flip side, however, many reception locations will hold their own holiday galas on those same nights. With a little luck, and a little research, there shouldn't be anything between you and your dream wedding!
Question: Where my reception is being held I am the only bride that day and am using the entire facility. I have a guest list of two hundred. How many bars should be open and how many bartenders should be used when there are three bars?
Question: I have 7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen, total of 4 parents and were getting married at a church and having a reception at a hall with 20 tables, which means 20 centerpieces. What would be a good floral budget??
Question: I have two family members in the clergy (of the Catholic Church). I definitely would like to be married in the Catholic faith; however, I would love the ceremony that is attended by all of my guests to be on a beach. Additionally, my ideal wedding venues are too far from my home Parish. I don't want to offend my family as I am sure they will be upset by this decision. Is there a way to make this work? Can the rehearsal be held in the Church and be an actual wedding?
Question: My fiance has a daughter that by the wedding she will be 9 yrs. old. How old is too old for a flower girl? And how can we include her in the wedding cermony?
Question: My nephew is having an engagement party tonight, do I need to take a gift. I'm not sure?????
Question: With out of town guest, who is responsible to pay for the accomendations? Hotel or Motel
Question: Hi my fiance and i are trying to put together an outdoor wedding. Yet, We can not find any outdoor venues that will allow us to have music and serve mixed drinks. We would love to just pitch up tents and hire a band in a park somewhere but it seems impossible to find a place. Do you have any suggestions? We live in farmingdale and would like to find an area that is close.
Question: My fiancé wants to take our formal pictures before our ceremony. I always thought that we shouldn't see each other until I walk down the aisle. I want to have more time at the reception, so taking the photos before is a good idea. But, I also was looking forward to the excitement of seeing each other for the first time as I walk down the aisle. Help! What should I do?
