Using Disposable Tableware For A Wedding

using disposable tableware for a wedding

 

In the current austerity climate each day we learn about another activity that can be done for less without compromising the experience. Weddings are no different; it may be the biggest day of your life but it no longer has to be the most expensive.

The catering bill is usually the biggest chunk out of the budget and is therefore an easy target for shaving costs if you put your mind to it. Many people plan in advance and opt for self-catering, with a trusted team of loyal friends and family members pitching in. Also, professional caterers will be happy to provide as much or as little of the food as you wish, meaning a hybrid event is equally possible.

Just The Way You Are, plus size bridal boutique, Newcastle upon Tyne

Just The Way You Are; the only dedicated plus-size bridal boutique in Newcastle upon Tyne

 

My name is Sophie Thwaites and I am the proud owner of Just The Way You Are; the only dedicated plus-size bridal boutique in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Many people in recent years have asked me why I have decided to leave the well paid profession of accountancy and put everything I have into being a business owner. To answer that question, I have to take them back to my early teens when my journey began.

On the last day of the summer term, I was travelling to school with my Dad and sister Lois, when suddenly we were hit from behind by a pick-up truck. Initially we all thought we were ok, so Dad took the insurance details from the driver and we continued on to school.

Groom’s suit should complement the colour scheme

Slate Tailcoat Group, Groom’s suit should complement the colour scheme

As the excitement around your big day begins to mount, the endless tasks and boxes to tick can mean that some important aspects of the day are at risk of being neglected. Whilst there’s probably been countless hours spent selecting the perfect wedding dress, arranging the seating plan and choosing romantic floral displays, the groom’s outfit is often at risk of being given slightly less time and attention.

Whilst it might not be as big a talking point as the dress (many assume a suit is simply a suit), the groom’s suit should complement the colour scheme and the feel of the day perfectly, and careful thought should be given - not only to the groom’s attire - but to that of his party as well.

Summer Wedding Trend – Serve your drinks in style

Wedding Drinks Station Server your summer wedding drinks in style

 

Traditional summer weddings have dramatically changed over the past few years, with the Bride & Groom looking for that little something that will make their big day stand out. Instead of choosing a drink for each part of the event, such as wine with dinner, champagne with the toast, and cocktails at the after party, wedding drinks have become more focussed on the personality of the happy couple.

Summer drinks of the moment include sparkling champagne mimosas, sweet mojitos and ice cold beer. For something non-alcoholic what about sparkling lemonades and fruity mock-tails… how does watermelon sound?
