RSVP/Menu Choice Tip

If you are giving your guests menu choices on your RSVP cards, be a little more specific than “beef” or “chicken.”

You don’t have to go into great detail (there isn’t enough room on the card for a big explanation anyway), but a “Prime Rib au jus” or “Chicken Parmesan” will offer more insight to what they are choosing (and what they get to look forward to!)

Hearts, Joy, Love!

Not your everyday . . . Food

There’s nothing wrong with sharing something you find special with your guests or wanting to try something different.

But you want to make sure you don’t stray so far out of the box that people will pass by a food choice because they’re thinking, “What in the world is that? I’m not putting that in my mouth.”

Most people are most comfortable with what’s familiar, or at least identifiable – perhaps even more so with what they eat.

That’s why mini versions of our everyday comfort food is so “in” right now. Mini burgers and pizzas, mini mac and cheese, and baby baked potatoes make great hors d’oeuvres choices.

People love ‘em so you have happy guests. Also there’s no left overs or wasted food. (And we all know that wasted anything = wasted money!)

Still, you don’t have to totally shy away from introducing something different – maybe a cultural favorite to honor your heritage, or a specific type of cuisine that you and your fiancé absolutely love. Your caterer can help you create a great balance, whether in ingredients, the appearance of the dish, or other menu choices.

Hearts, Joy, Love!

Ceremony Music – A Twist On Tradition

Ok. So maybe you really want something different when you’re planning your ceremony music — but still want it to “sound” like wedding music.

Have you heard of the Vitamin String Quartet?

According to their Wikipedia page “Vitamin String Quartet is about applying rock n’ roll attitude to classical technique.”

Their music is fun, and can be appreciated by all ages. Guests young enough to recognize the songs will get a kick out of the classical versions, and your older guests will enjoy some “new” classical music.

To hear more of their songs, check out their ” Modern Wedding Collections” on Amazon.

Hearts, Joy, Love!
