8 Times the Groom & Groomsmen Wore White (and Totally Rocked it!)

Typically it’s frowned upon for anyone but the bride to wear white or off-white at a wedding, so the bridal party usually wears some sort of color or neutral to match the accent colors of the wedding.  But what happens when it’s an all-white wedding?  If the bridal party were to wear a color, they would look completely out of place against a white setting.  In this situation, an all-white bridal party can be chic and sophisticated, and also beachy or boho at times.  If you have trouble finding white men’s attire, go for an off-white vest or bottoms to keep the look clean and simple.

Red Rose Napa Marriage Proposal by The Yes Girls

Edward wanted to surprise Diana during a romantic trip to Napa. Neither had been wine tasting in Napa so they were ecstatic to finally be making the trip from So Cal. As we got to know about the couple’s interests and favorite things, we discovered they absolutely love date nights in playing cards and board games. Edward wanted classic romance while still making it all about them. As the couple was escorted to their private tasting on a terrace overlooking the garden, there were 4 Queen cards displayed on personalized wine corks. Each card said something he admired about Diana. The King of Hearts was the final note waiting to be flipped over, which was Edwards cue to ask his “Queen” to marry him!

The Brunch Wedding

WHO to invite.

Luckily, you can invite the same guests to a brunch wedding as you would a traditional dinner wedding.  Even more so, older guests may enjoy a brunch wedding better because it’s less likely that a little bit of day drinking will turn into a full blown party.

brunch wedding ideas

 

WHAT to serve.

The obvious menu choice for a brunch wedding would be, well, brunch.  Since brunch is typically a mixture of sweet and savory foods, you can have a lot of fun with the food!  For appetizers, serve things like chicken and waffle kabobs and finger sandwiches.  For the main course, serve a sit down meal or buffet with brunch favorites.  Depending on the formality of the wedding, donuts, yogurt bars, or make your own omelettes could be fun for the guests.  And definitely DON’T skimp on the cocktails.  Bloody Mary’s and mimosas are a must!

brunch wedding ideas

 

WHEN should the wedding take place?

Since brunch is generally eaten in the late morning/ early afternoon time frame, the reception should fall around the same time.  Guests will come expecting food, so making them wait any longer will make for very unhappy family and friends.  This means that the ceremony should take place in the morning, probably around 10 o’clock.

brunch wedding ideas

 

WHERE should it be held?

Brunch weddings can generally be held at any venue, however it’s important to remember that since brunch is a social event, tables should not be exclusive.  All guests should comfortably be able to mingle and eat as they please.  Outdoor venues are sometimes the easiest to accommodate these situations.

WHY have a brunch wedding?

Brunch weddings can be lighter on food and easier on a budget.  Even though a brunch wedding would have a main focus on food, the choices served could be much cheaper than those at a dinner wedding (steak, fish, etc.). Afternoon weddings are also ideal if guests have several travel hours invested.  This gives them the option to stay in town overnight, or make the trip back home after the wedding if they have work the next day or do not want to spend on a hotel room.  Plus, everyone loves an excuse to brunch!

HOW to transition a traditional dinner wedding to a brunch wedding.

If you’ve already had a wedding concept in your head, but like the idea of having a day wedding rather than evening, it’s not a hard switch! The key is to ensuring that all guests are aware that the wedding will be early, and that there will be a brunch menu.  Also, if you want to change the dress code to fit the theme, clearly print what you want your guests to wear on your invitations.

How to Keep Your Guy Friends Entertained at Your Wedding

If your guy friends aren’t usually the type to wear a suit and tie or behave at formal occasions, there’s a good chance that weddings won’t be their favorite place to hang out.  Even if they’re your best friends, they might feel a little claustrophobic in such a situation.  So how can you get your guys to relax and enjoy your big day as much as you? The key is all in the entertainment!  If they’re having a good time and goofing around (doing wedding-appropriate things) like when you usually hang out, they’ll feel that the day is less of a chore and more of a reason to celebrate! Here’s some of our favorites:

Unique Wedding Cake Toppers

Wedding cakes are one of the most customizable aspects of a wedding.  With all of the cute wedding cake trends lately, the last thing you want is a traditional, boring bride and groom statue to ruin it.  One of the most important things to do when finding a cake topper is to consider the wedding theme, as well as the cake itself.  While wedding cakes usually match the wedding theme, there are instances where the cake has its own subject that needs to be addressed.  In this case, match the cake topper to the cake, or try your best to incorporate both themes.  Next, consider the size of the cake.  If you had a ten-tier cake with a single candle topper, the cake would look completely off balance and unfinished.  Lastly, consider your color palette.  If your wedding is done in all pastels, don’t choose a neon cake topper (or vice versa).  Your cake topper should match the rest of the wedding, but also be bold enough to be a focal point at the reception.
