Reasons to Go for a Golf-Course Wedding Venue

Posted by on October 13, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Reasons to Go for a Golf-Course Wedding Venue

A big part of planning for a wedding is picking out the perfect venue. Choosing the right spot can allow you to have great scenery, ample space, and lots of fun activities for guests during your big day. Golf-course venues are often popular for offering great services and flexibility, and that makes them a top choice for hosting weddings. Here is a look at several reasons why a golf-course venue might just be the perfect wedding destination venue for you. Flexibility Many golf-course venues offer beautiful views of lush, green courses that can create a great setting for hosting your big day. Holding an outdoor ceremony on a deck overlooking the course or in beautifully appointed outdoor gazebos can allow you to take full advantage of the beautiful scenery to capture your unforgettable moment while providing ample space for a sizable number of guests. Many golf-course venues also offer a terrace patio where your guests can meet up for cocktail hour after the event while they enjoy the natural surroundings and fresh air.  In case of bad weather, your guests can quickly move into the banquet room offered at most golf-course venues. From the banquet room, they can still enjoy the spectacular panoramic views of the courses or go into the ballroom for dinner and dancing. With a golf-course wedding venue, you have the flexibility to host everything in the great outdoors or move inside the banquet hall.  Easy planning and exclusivity Many folks prefer to book a wedding spot where their event will be the only one going on. Many event centers have multiple spaces and banquets holding different events on any given day, and that can be distasteful if you are going for exclusivity during your big day. Luckily, most clubhouses usually have just one ballroom, ensuring that your wedding will be the only event on the day.  Picking out a spot to take photos for your wedding can also be a daunting task. Golf-course venues can make the job easier, as they usually offer beautiful outdoor gardens and great views of the courses, which offer a perfect photography backdrop to capture all the unforgettable moments from the big day. Golf-course wedding venues often also include on-site planners who can help pick out scenic photo locations on the grounds and work with you on the itinerary of the day’s event as well as a customized wedding menu to ensure your wedding day is one to remember.

Wedding Aisle Runner Ideas You Should Consider

Posted by on August 3, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Wedding Aisle Runner Ideas You Should Consider

Out of all of the aspects of the design of your wedding that you’ve put countless hours of thought and preparation to, not a single one is more overlooked than the runner placed on the aisle for you to walk down on. However, the runner itself, seen by all your guests and in most pictures of you standing at the altar, acts as a focal point, either subtly enhancing your overall design or (if done incorrectly or haphazardly) creating a jarring disturbance in your look. So if you’re looking for a few aisle runner ideas to give the finishing touch to your wedding’s décor, then here’s what you need to know. Go All-Natural If you’re having an outdoor wedding – or even if your theme is just a little more natural or rustic – a natural-looking aisle runner is your best bet. Rather than being made out of fabrics (though dyed burlap is a nice choice for a natural theme if you do decide on a fabric runner), you can lay down a carpet of flower petals for a lovely, aromatic runner. If you don’t want to deal with a bunch of stray petals, flower chains running the length of the aisle are a no-fuss, natural way to mark the aisle without providing too many places to trip. Go Grand If you’re more of a show-stopping bride with a grand, glamorous theme in mind, the runner can be the elaborate, decorative icing on the cake. A glitzy, metallic trim in either gold (for warmer wedding colors like red, orange, and yellow) or silver (for cooler wedding colors like green, blue, and purple) on the edges of a silk or satin runner is a great look if you like a bit of bling, while a runner made out of French lace is better for an old Hollywood or stately and royal sort of vibe. Go Classic If your wedding embraces a more classic look than a natural theme or grand affair, you can’t go wrong with an entirely classic option: a simple, hemmed piece of white cotton cloth. Cotton-like alternatives like polypropylene are also quite popular, as they keep the traditional look while being significantly more heavy duty – a good thing if you have a large wedding processional, if your bridesmaids are wearing heels, or if you’re having an outdoor wedding. Remember, the only hard and fast rules about an aisle runner – if indeed you choose to have one at all – are that it should be slightly longer than the aisle itself, and that it should be secured down to the floor. So feel free to choose any aisle runner look you want; in the end, the most important part of the day is your...
