His Wedding

By JewelrybySteveRiley

When it comes to organizing a Mans wedding there are a few gems for that individual guy that wants some say in the wedding arrangements. From boutonnieres to table decorations, wedding invitations to wedding rings, there are some great masculine choices amongst wedElectic team members.

Grand exit ~ Did you opt to make a grand exit at your wedding? If so what did you do?

I wanted to leave a bit early when planning our wedding, but we opted to help pack up everything that night (still in our gown and tux) so we didn’t have to come back in the morning. It was a very DIY wedding, so we had to pack up the centerpieces’ vases, stones and silks, the chair cover and sashes, and the many other décor pieces around the rooms.

I love the grand exit. 32 years ago we had a post reception party for close family and friends. I hated to leave!!

My favorite grand exit was when the couple rented a gorgeous old car, a Bentley Mark VI, and drove off to their destination!

My husband and tried to do a grand exit… My husband is a BIG cyclist & we married in an outdoor wedding in Colorado. So when we were ready to go, he put me on the bike and he peddled us away!

My mom and grandmother rolled their eyes – so go with the Bentley Mark VI instead!

My husband and I opted for a grand exit. We originally wanted everyone to hold sparklers for us to run under. Unfortunately it didn’t happen as the sparklers were hard to light, plus we got married on the coast and it’s typically windy there. Luckily we tested them first! Instead we had a large paper banner made that said “Just Married” and our wedding date. We had a few people hold it up and everyone lined up on both sides. We then charged down the “aisle” high fiving everyone along the way and then tore through the banner like a football game. Kinda cheesy, I know, but it was fun and different. 🙂

Save the date cards ~ are they necessary? Did you opt to send them out?

I think it helps family and friends in terms of scheduling time off of work, especially if they are sent far in advance. (Ours were sent out a full year ahead of time.)
It can also be a great way to announce your website (for RSVPs, date, venue, menu options, hotels, area information, etc.).
And since they are sent out early, they don’t have to match your invites. : ) I created ours on Vistaprint for fairly cheap, so it was well worth it. : )

I love the idea of receiving Save The Date cards. In a time where we are so busy it helps to give people a heads up on the upcoming wedding. It also provides the bride to be the opportunity to introduce herself and her fiance with a special photo. I guess if my budget was tight I might forgo but I personally love to receive them.

I ❤ Save the Dates!

Even if the notice isn’t a formal card or mailing, a simple email really helps!
Our calendar includes several weddings this summer in at least three different states!

Many friends and families are really busy in the summer months, especially, so giving as much notice as possible is preferred. We’ve received ‘Save the Date’ cards, emails – one even included a YouTube link with pictures of the couple with a favorite song!

Save the date cards are not only fun to receive but I think they are necessary these days with our other responsibilities and commitments. I am so glad that my husband and I decided to send them out nearly 6 months in advance as we had several guests mention they already had trips planned but decided to reschedule so they could attend our wedding! As Dalynda mentioned above there are a few ways to send out Save the Dates for free, they don’t need to expensive. I too have received a Save the Date by email with a photo of the couple which actually linked back to their wedding website where you could even RSVP for their wedding!

Jewel tones are becoming very popular and emerald green is emerging as the front runner!  Nothing says March like the color green and I can’t think of a more appropriate wedding theme for the springtime bride.

A color pallet suitable  for a March wedding or any time of the year!
