So why should you pay for professional graphic design? When you pick up a piece of corporate stationery such as a letterhead or a business card, the look of the piece catches your attention before you’ve even read the information. How many times have you accepted a boring, plain white card only to lose it at the bottom of your brief case or throw it away with a pile of till slips?

Wedding Programs – Setting the Tone of a Wedding

May 30th, 2011 | Comments Off on Wedding Programs – Setting the Tone of a Wedding | Posted in Weddings
Wedding programs may not be adopted by every wedding couple but for those who wish to do so, the ideas in this article will serve as an excellent guide. A wedding program adds a little something extra to the big event and is a record of the ceremony. Guests feel included when they have a program and can better understand the planned ceremony. Of course a wedding program makes a great keepsake for the bridal couple.
You can make of your wedding program anything you desire, make it a formal statement of the evening ahead or add elements that are light hearted in nature. Add a picture or two and get as creative as you possibly can. When your guests take their program home as a keepsake it means you have achieved what you set out to do – create something memorable.
If you don’t want your guests to discard their programs soon after the wedding you need to add an element of the unexpected that will make them want to keep a souvenir of the wedding. A sample program would ideally include a picture of the bride and groom with the wedding date, names of the bridal couple’s parents and the wedding party members, ceremony of events including the hymns, prayers and church proceedings, reception information and a beautiful closing in the form of a love quote or something more unique.
You can create the cover of your program to have the names and date, a picture of the two of you and maybe a scroll design. Give details of the ceremony beginning with the processional music, greeting, readings, hymns, prayers, vows and so on until the recessional music is played as the couple leave the church. Keep to the order in which the ceremony will proceed to include your guests from other faiths.
Information about the bridal party will include the names of the parents of the bride and groom, officiant, grandparents, maid of honor, best man, bridesmaids, groomsmen, readers and soloist if you plan to have a special wedding song.
Don’t forget to put in the directions to your reception. The program can include one liners about the bridal party – keep it humorous; special thank you messages and a general thank you message to the guests for making a memorable event more special by their attendance.
Wedding programs that incorporate funny pictures of the couple and personally written wedding vows make for a great keepsake.

Getting the Seating Right at your Wedding

May 30th, 2011 | Comments Off on Getting the Seating Right at your Wedding | Posted in Weddings
Weddings are happy events filled with loads of excitement but they are also one of the most stressful times you will ever face in life. There’s so much to plan, coordinate and accomplish that its quite easy to overlook something really important. People seldom pay much attention to the seating arrangements and this could pose problems.
In point of fact getting the seating right is really very important for a successful reception. Imagine that you have two aunts who simply cannot get along and you inadvertently put them next to each other at the reception! Would you want to be responsible for the mayhem that follows?
When planning the seating arrangements think carefully about the ties that bind and the little family squabbles. Also consider that you will serve alcohol and this can get people properly steamed up. Rather than tearing out your hair in frustration, read on to find some useful tips to help you devise the perfect seating plan which will avert disaster.
Family members and close friends who are part of the wedding party go right up front at the head table. It is best not to deviate from this plan as there are only so many people you can seat with the bride and groom. Whoever you put at your table others are going to be insulted, so stick to the bridal party only and there will not be room for complaints.
Try to place people who share similar interests together, don’t go putting an artsy person next to a dry as dust lawyer! Even if people are total strangers meeting for the first time, pairing them off properly will get the conversation going. Your aim is to make sure that the mood around each table is upbeat and joyful, not dancing on the tables joyful but happy on such a special day.
Music at weddings is invariably loud, don’t go putting the elderly guests near the speakers, it will be very annoying to say nothing of the discomfort they will experience. Loud noise is not good for people with hearing aids – it can interfere with their hearing ability.
When seating people at a table you need to make sure that every person at the table knows at least one other person. This will help get the conversation started and people will feel more at ease having someone they know nearby.
You should make use of these tips as a guideline to drawing up your seating chart.
