It’s a busy time of year. Kids are already back in school, or going back in a few days, last minute summer trips are being taken, and the holidays are approaching. With so much going on any extra help is awesome, especially when it comes to preparing for super special occasions. Seasonal weddings call for showers, and couples bridal showers are all the rage now days.
Tips for Holiday Shower and Wedding Preparations
Start with a list and check it twice, as you want to make sure that everything’s nice. Will the event be themed? What about food and decorations? Once you have that settled, you need to make a list of guests to invite, and then send out couples bridal shower invitations, or a custom bridal shower invitation. You want to be sure that the invitations are memorable and express the right feeling so that people will be excited for the happy couple, and look forward attending!
When shopping for invitations, look for a company that offers customization and makes the process easy – shopping online is a great time saver. Being able to upload all your wedding details, along with images, maps to the event’s location, and adding just the right colors and designs to match the happy couples wedding invitations is a real boon! Basic Invite is a great source to start out with. They have over 180 custom colors to choose from, and they offer printed samples so you can see first hand the first rate quality of their paper. Don’t forget to check out the envelopes too! With 40 different envelope colors (and the peel and seal makes them so easy to close) – the invitees will be impressed before they even open them!
Invitations Done – What’s Next?
So, the invitations are ordered, and mailed out, let’s get to work on getting the party started. Will you have the food catered and flowers done for you, or will you be tackling everything on your own? Shop around for prices, and look for holiday deals. If you go the do it yourself route, think ordering in bulk and having delivered right to your door. Many warehouse stores offer online ordering, and pickup services. If you get clear cutlery, plates, and glasses, extras can be used throughout the holidays. Just add paper napkins in the color(s) to match your theme.
Many have very reasonably priced already prepared fruit, vegetable, meat, and cheese platters, or allow you to order in advance. If you want to do those on your own, purchase pre-washed, and cut up vegetable for quick and easy prep. Maybe the bride and groom to be, have a favorite restaurant that can provide the desserts? If you are going for a really relaxed affair, even a pot luck can be a smashing event, when the venue is dressed for the occasion. The most important thing is for everyone – including the organizers – to be relaxed and have fun.
