We are going to share with you our top five ideas to make your reception room POP!
The first suggestion is simple. Instead of using the venues basic linens, kick it up a notch by ordering colored or textured linens from your local distributor. What makes this suggestion so exciting is the linens that are offered to the event industry are beautiful and creative.
Imagine walking into a reception room with basic ivory linens, nice but... Now imagine walking into a room that has upgraded at minimum to a polyester solid color like rust, raspberry or chocolate...yes!
It is always best to have a iron or steamer on hand to remove the folding crease. Please consult your linen distributor before applying heat to fabrics.
Keeping all the tables the same when it comes to the linens will assure a much cleaner look.

Red is the color of energy and evokes such emotions such as passion and love (very fitting for a wedding).

The first color we are going to profile is GREEN. Green is the color of nature, fertility, life. Green symbolizes self-respect and well being. Green is the color of balance. It also means learning, growth and harmony.

Purchase "The Maidens" t-shirts from The Boutique in Houston, wrap them up, and send them to your favorite gals....they'll get the idea! These tees never go out of style...once a maiden always a maiden!
Everyone loves a frosted sugar cookie once in awhile, so why not order these great custom delights. It will not only be a great treat, but it is a great way to ask the question. Yummy!Treat the most important ladies in your life to a group pedicure...while relaxed and enjoying each other's company, express to them that only your bridesmaids deserve the utmost treatment! They'll flip out right then and there! If most of your maids are local, invite them for dinner and drinks on you. Take a moment to toast and before toasting, ask them to be your bridesmaids. You can all toast to one big "yes!"Find an old picture of you and your friend...preferably one that could be used for blackmail! Create a greeting card asking your friend to be in your wedding party.

Outside vendors are welcome, with the exception of beverage/bar services. Agave Road can offer their suggestion from their highly preferred caterers to make your planning easier. They also know how important your day is and want to devote all their time and attention to you, so they will only book one event per day. And there are only so many weekends in a year, so it is best to book six to twelve months in advance.

We were surfing the net the other day and ran into these cute cosmetic bags. Now this is just not any cosmetic bag; it is a custom photo bag (how cute). There are several different sizes and they range in price. The website is user friendly and purchasing the bags is nice and easy. For your bridesmaids, www.Bagettes.com suggests using pictures from college days, childhood photos or even a cute pic of their man. LOVE IT!!

1. Stay ahead of the game.
Do what you can, when you can so it can be crossed off your list of things to do. Putting it off will only increase stress.
2. Trust your wedding professionals.
You hired them, so you must have had a good reason for your decision. Let them work their magic and take care of you.
3. Make a decision and don't look back.
There are millions of ideas and options when it comes to your wedding. You will go crazy if you look and look and entertain every idea. Trust your first choice-it's usually the best one.
4. Keep your guests' happiness in mind.
Yes, it is your big day, but these people will travel near and far for you. The day should be just as much for them as it is for you.
5. Be creative and unique.
In other words, be you. Add your personality and personal touch wherever possible.
6. Hire a wedding planner.
Like we said, planning isn't easy, and aren't you kind of busy anyway? Have a planner come on board for at least the coordination to ease the stress.

Think of it like a program, but the the entire event. How wonderful for the guest at your wedding to know moment by moment what to expect. You can make it as detailed or general as you'd like. For example, you can add times for each event or you can just give the order of events .
Talk to your invitation experts for suggestions on presentation and stationary.
