Ideas For A Chic Wedding

May 19, 2008
Every couple wants their wedding day to be a special day to remember. That is why people tend to go all-out to make the occasion so grand. There are the major aspects of the wedding such as the dress, venue, music, food, and flowers that will all make the wedding memorable, but it is often the smaller details that can make a wedding truly spectacular.

When discussing colors with your coordinator at your wedding venue, you will probably be offered either cream or white as a color option for tablecloths and napkins. Nowadays, most brides do tend to develop their own color scheme and will plan everything around it. Certain colors of table linen may be provided by the venue or you can rent them from an independent firm. Having matching linen will add a certain style to the reception. You can even go a step further and add chair covers in either a matching or complementary shade. It isn't something that people would notice if it were missing, but they will be sure to notice it once it's there. This will help to tie in the reception room with the wedding color scheme.

All traditional weddings will offer water goblets on the tables. By adding a slice of lemon to each glass will give it a special touch. Likewise you could consider adding a strawberry to the champagne flutes for the wedding toast. Your guests will be impressed with these little details added to the wedding planning.

One of the best parts of the wedding reception is the food. People look forward to having the delicious, and often expensive, food that comes out at a wedding. Surprise the guests with some little extras that come before and after dinner. It is becoming popular to offer a drink fountain during the cocktail hour. Traditionally, these drinks are often a single type of liquor mixed with either juice or soda. Mix it up a bit by offering something fancier such as a margarita fountain. It is also becoming popular to offer a pasta station during the cocktail hour. This is a small table set with a server, offering two or three different pastas with two or three different sauces. It is a great way to stave off the hunger before dinner is served. After dinner, consider offering a coffee buffet rather than straight coffee or decaf. These additions are not terribly expensive, but all the guests will remember them.

To create a totally chic look for your wedding set the stage with any or all of the special extras. You may even have other ideas that will set your wedding apart from all the others.
