One more way to make your day memorable...
You’re anything *but* ordinary (I can tell) so why not make your Dream Wedding even more unforgettable with a Signature Drink?
Whether you’re hiring a caterer who could dream up something special or you create one of your own, here are some ideas on choosing a Signature Wedding Drink:
● Match your color palette
● Think seasonal (floral notes for spring, citrusy for summer, spiced for fall, or a warm winter drink)
● A sweet memory of you and your partner
I found this swoon-worthy selection of fall drinks you *have* to try (like the Spiced Maple Bourbon Fizz, you can find a list of the 25 Most Popular Fall Drinks over at Half Baked Harvest right here).

Your guests are like your personal paparazzi on your wedding day. But what should you do if you don’t want your special and intimate moments to find their way onto social media?
Unfortunately, you can’t fully control the situation but there are steps you can take to make your wishes known and limit social media uploads.
● Mention It on Your Invite. If you will be creating a wedding website, mention your wishes there. Get specific though. Are you fine with guests snapping photos at the reception but not the ceremony? Would you prefer guests to wait until you and your partner have posted photos before they do? Tell them exactly what you do and don’t want – it is your day after all. Keep in mind that if you’re going to use a wedding hashtag, it might be confusing to also ask guests not to post photos.
● Include a Note on the Program. If you’re sending out printed invites, you may have to mention your no-photo rule on your programs. You could even include a small printed note with your invites if you have the extra budget.
● Announce It. Since you will have everyone’s attention at the start of the ceremony, get your officiant or master of ceremonies to announce your requests about photos and social media.
● Create a Sign. Another option is to create a sign that you can place at the entrance of your ceremony. This ensures that all guests see it.
● Alter Your Privacy Settings. If you don’t want to take any chances, you can always change your social media privacy settings. This way, you can’t be tagged in any photos you haven’t approved.
Don’t feel guilty for asking your guests not to post your wedding photos on social media. By approaching it in a fair and even humorous way, it doesn’t have to be a big deal.
As you get closer to your wedding day, you’re going to need to find someone to lead the ceremony. You will probably have quite a few questions for your officiant, but they will have a few for you too.
Here is some of the information you should prepare prior to meeting with your wedding officiant.
1. Details of the Day
As you can imagine, your officiant will firstly want to know who you are as a couple, as well as when and where you plan to get married. This will help them determine availability and if they are willing to travel to your wedding venue.
2. The Vision for Your Ceremony
Next, your officiant will want to know more about how you would like to remember your wedding ceremony. Be prepared to describe your ideal ceremony and how you want guests to remember the moment. You can also make a list of what you liked and didn’t like at other wedding ceremonies so that your officiant knows what to avoid.
3. Your Relationship
To make your ceremony as relevant and personal as possible, your officiant will more than likely ask how you met and when you fell in love. You don’t have to provide every small detail – your officiant just wants to understand more about who you are as a couple. You can even provide the details of your engagement as this also offers valuable insights.
4. How You See Your Partner
To help your officiant learn more about who you are as individuals, he or she might ask you to describe your partner. How are they similar and different to you? What traits do you love the most and why are you marrying them?
5. Your Wedding Party and Guests
Since your officiant will also be in the same room as all your guests and your wedding party, they might want to know more about the people in your lives. How did you pick your wedding party and who is on your guest list? Is it more family, friends, or a combination of both?
6. Religion and Traditions
Next, your officiant will want to know more about your religious beliefs and whether you want to include any prayers in your ceremony. If not, they may also ask if there are any particular readings you want to include. This could be anything from poetry to passages from your favorite book. If there are any specific traditions or rituals you want to include in your ceremony, this is a good time to discuss them. Choosing the right officiant for your wedding is important, so don’t rush the decision or feel that you have to go with the first officiant you meet. Choose someone who understands who you are, what you want, and someone you both connect with.
