In an ideal world, all wedding guests would RSVP on or before the given deadline. But, this notion is often quite unrealistic for several reasons. Some guests may assume that you already know whether or not they are attending the wedding while others may just simply forget to RSVP. Also, keep in mind that there is always a slight chance that some guests did not receive their invitations due to addressing and/or mail delivery errors. Give it a week after the RSVP deadline for the remainder of the guest list to respond. If you still haven’t heard from certain guests after one week, go ahead and send those guests an email. Reaching out sooner rather than later is ideal so that you can better plan for catering headcounts and required favor quantities.
Sally's Salon Effects are the perfect way to get the full effect of a salon manicure without having to leave your home. They are fast-drying, relatively simple to use, and last for 10 days. Salon Effects come in a variety of 40 shades and styles. The product used in the above picture is Love Letter; one of my favorite styles. How fun would it be to provide each bridesmaid with a set that matches her dress?!
I always find that interactive vendors are a wonderful way to add a little magic to any event. Take a live painter like Christopher Turner, for example. Christopher can be hired to stand at your wedding and paint a scene from the evening’s festivities. Guests are welcome to watch Christopher in action throughout the event. The original artwork is then given to the newlyweds as a memorable keepsake of the wedding day. Check out Christopher’s website at www.artbychristopherturner.com to view his work and live painting event packages.
“Don’t Tell the Bride” is a reality based television show where engaged couples are given $20,000 and two weeks to plan their ultimate dream wedding. What is the catch? Well, the groom and one of his groomsmen plan the entire wedding without any input from the bride! This is the groom’s golden opportunity to plan the most beautiful wedding day that his bride could ever hope for. Email firstname.lastname@example.org by July 6, 2012 to submit your application. Good luck and make sure you let us know if you make the cut!

With so much to do on your wedding day as it is, avoid the stress of worrying about remembering your vows by writing them on a lovely, little scroll. Carry your scroll in hand or in your bouquet as you walk down the aisle. When it comes time to recite your vows, unravel the scroll as you read. This will help ensure that all of your sentiments are expressed on your special day and the scroll will also make a very memorable wedding keepsake.
