Tip of the Month

Make sure you read and understand all of your contracts before signing them. The last thing you want to find out a few weeks before your wedding is that your reception space can cancel your event for no reason or that your florist has the right to substitute carnations for roses.

If you don't understand a contract, it might be worth paying a wedding planner or lawyer to review it. The money spent may avoid a lot of problems later on.

Bridal Q & A

This month's question is from Alicia who writes:

"Hello. Quick question for you - is it proper etiquette to invite friends to the reception only? Our wedding venue is very small and can only accommodate so many guests - we would like to reserve these spaces for family mostly. Is this okay?"

Dear Alicia,

It is perfectly OK to invite people only to the reception. We suggest that you have two different invitations. One for those you would like to attend the ceremony, and one for the reception only guests.

This will help to avoid any awkward situations. For those that ask why they were only invited to the reception, simply explain that you could not fit everyone at the ceremony and there are many others just like them only attending the reception.

To your wedding!
Danielle & Stephen
