    Last updated 2 days 22 hours ago

    Your bridal party works hard to help you bring together all of the details for your dream wedding. As you finalize the details for your special day, take some time to choose a gift that shows your bridesmaids how much you appreciate them. Keep reading for some gift ideas that allow you to show them your gratitude:

    A Pamper Kit
    Give your favorite ladies the ideal chance to relax with a pamper kit with some soothing essentials. From a fragrant bubble bath to a beautiful silk robe, these little extras show your bridal party just how much you appreciate the hard work they put in to make your wedding day as special and as memorable as possible.

    Personalized jewelry is always a great gift for your bridal party because it serves a variety of purposes. Not only does it show all of your bridesmaids that you went to the trouble of creating something just for them, but it also gives them the perfect accessory for your wedding day. Make jewelry that will complement the bridesmaid’s dresses to ensure that everyone looks their best for pictures.

    A Gift Certificate
    Another way to personalize your bridesmaid’s gifts is to give them each gift certificates to places they love. Gift certificates to salons, movie theaters, and coffee houses are fun favors to give your bridal party. If you can give each girl a gift certificate to a place that she really loves, she will know how grateful you are that she participated in your special day.

    Last updated 9 days ago

    Sit-down meals give you the opportunity to plan events that allow your guests to spend some time getting to know each other. If you want to plan a sit-down dinner for an upcoming event, consider the following to ensure that you can plan a successful meal:

    The Right Tables and Chairs
    When you plan a sit-down meal, the kinds of tables and chairs that you use will affect how many people you can invite to your event. Once you know the layout of your party space, you can figure out how many tables and chairs you can fit inside the venue to figure out a guest list and still keep your guests comfortable enough to enjoy their meals.

    A Seating Chart
    Whether you are planning a formal or a casual event, a seating chart helps you keep your guest list organized. Once you have a final count of who is coming, you can start to figure out a seating chart. You can choose to put people who already know each other at the same table so they feel more comfortable interacting with each other. If you want to be adventurous, you can seat strangers next to each other to give them a chance to get to know each other.

    Food Service Needs
    From your menu to the people serving the food, there are a lot of elements of the food service that must come together to help you plan a successful sit-down meal. Spend some time on these details to ensure that you have the proper place settings for the meal that you plan to serve. You should also talk to the event space about their staff to ensure that there are plenty of servers who can accommodate your guests.

    Communicate with the Party Throwers

Talk about what kind of event space you think will do the most to complement your party plans. Decide on a theme and decorations and share the information with whoever is planning the event.

    Choose the Perfect Date

Find a few dates that work for your schedule and try to figure out which one is the most convenient to the majority of your guest list so you can celebrate with as many family and friends as possible.

    Figure Out Your Invitations
    Once you know all of the details of the party, you can start to figure out your invitations. There are no rules that regulate how to invite guests to your engagement party.
