Age And Accessibility At Your Wedding

April 10th, 2017

Your wedding is your “big day”, and you’ll want all your guests to have as wonderful a time as you. Music, food, and dancing, likely all feature in your plans, and this will suit your friends, family and co-workers and you’ll have a great time. But what about grandparents and older relatives? Equally, you could be an older couple tying the knot, who want a more low-key and relaxed affair. This will require a slightly different approach to make sure everyone’s needs are met and that they all have an enjoyable day.

Planning for perfection

The key is to factor these needs in as early as possible to make everything run smoothly.

  • When getting your invitations printed, make sure the font is legible and large enough to be easily read by those who may have trouble with their vision.
  • Pick a venue with accessible entrances and rooms, plenty of seating, and good restroom facilities; also investigate options for induction loops and hearing devices.
  • If you, the bridal couple, are older yourselves then why not consider assisted living or retirement complexes, which will already be well equipped for a party with a higher average age bracket.
  • Make sure it’s fairly easy to get to, and arrange transport to and from the ceremony, reception, and accommodation in advance. You could think about hiring a coach for easy transportation of guests between locations.
  • Chose practical food which is straightforward to eat – nothing too fiddly or messy, but then this goes for almost any wedding!

The big day itself

On the day, there’s a few things to remember which can really make a difference to your older guests. There can seem a lot to keep track of – and you’ll be caught up in the buzz of the day – so get your bridesmaids and groomsmen on the case ahead of time. Try pairing them up with senior members of your party to help them find their seats and let them know what order everything is happening. It can be a good idea to sit seniors near the front and at the end of rows so that they can see and hear what is going on, both for the ceremony and any speeches at the reception.

If you’ve got a more lively party planned for later, make sure there is a quiet corner or separate space with plenty of comfortable seating and refreshments for them to relax in at the end of a long day. They might not want to join in with a disco, but if your day has been a success they might not want to go home just yet!

Cute Ways To Personalize Your Big Day

Your special day is so personal to you and your future spouse, it’s great to be able to reflect that in the events of the day itself. Keeping everything intimate and personalized to you both, you make the guests feel as though they’re being let in on a beautiful, romantic secret, and it can make for a truly unique and stunning wedding. Here are some cute ideas for creating a wedding very personal to you and your betrothed.

 

Involve the things you both love

If you both love football, use the colors of your team as your wedding theme. If you’re both into sailing or fishing, a naval or maritime-themed wedding would be perfect. If you love cycling or horse riding, turn on by bike or on horseback. Using things which are personal to you both can add a really romantic edge to the day, but also result in something truly unique.

 

Monogram everything

Anything you can put your monogrammed initials on, get them on there. It’s a really sweet way of keeping your names intertwined, and personalizing everything. Why not buy wedding napkins with your initials monogrammed on? And keep that theme running throughout everything, from the invitations, to the favors and the thank you cards.

Put a Polaroid camera on each table

You’ll want to be able to look back at the amazing day you had with fondness, but also reminisce over the fun your loved ones had on your special day. A photo booth or Polaroid cameras allow your guests to record memories throughout the evening and take candid photos of you, which makes for a really personal memento in years to come.

 

Serve wines from the year you met

If you’re planning on serving wine to your guests, why not choose a wine you both love from the year you both met? If you’re feeling particularly flush, wines from your birth years can also be really cute, but slightly pricier.

 

Get your pet involved

Who doesn’t want their favorite furry friend to get involved on the biggest day of their life? And is there anything cuter than a pup in a tux? If you trust your pet to be well behaved, they would make a great ring bearer or flower girl, and a truly unique addition to your day.

 

Honor your heritage

If you’re Irish, why not serve Guinness, get all the men in kilts, and learn a jig for your first dance? Or if you’re of Japanese heritage, why not carry orchids down the aisle and serve sushi to the guests? Honoring the heritage of you and your future spouse is a great way of personalizing your wedding day, but also paying homage to your history. You could even have readings in your native tongue, or a band in the traditional style. It all adds a different edge to your special day, too, which makes it really memorable and exciting for guests.

 

Personalizing your wedding day is all about bringing in aspects of things which are important to you and your future spouse. It’s about incorporating your heritage, the history of your relationship, and everything you love into your big day.

 

Fairy Tale Monterey Wedding

September 2nd, 2016

 

Every fairy tale has its end or at least it’s to be continued. I moved to Monterey almost four years ago on a big leap of faith and it has been a life changing experience. I’ve always followed the motto “no risk – no reward”. Events in Monterey are very different from the rest of the world. The town just like the fog that encapsulates its nights creates its own magical blanket over its special events.

 

From its community based fund raising galas to the grandeur of its loved filled weddings, the town transform every occasion with its name alone. Monterey is not just rich with its beyond belief scenic views and family like community, the towns roots are actually deep in America’s history. It was a place where I was able to help guide love to the altar and also design many successful social events. Monterey will always hold a special place in my heart as I found unexpected true love here.

 

Monterey really shifted my event aesthetic coming from the bright sunny dessert land of Phoenix, Arizona where my influences where bright pops colors nestled in its impure topaz like landscape (reddish-orange, gold, opaque, pale grey and browns), maturing with time to incorporate more earth metals and woods. I drew a lot of inspiration from the desert plant life and Native American culture

 

Monterey on the other hand has its own special style which quickly becomes your own. It draws mainly from its landscape which can be compared to something carved out by the Greek gods themselves. It’s a utopia where the phrase “the meeting of land and sea” takes on a different elevated meaning. The deep ocean colors that hug the peninsulas earthy greens and brown leave you with a canvas that can only be paired with spectacular glamor and sophisticated taste.

 

I can’t thank Hyatt Regency Monterey enough for gifting me such a life changing opportunity and allowing me to do it my way. Now the time has come to take everything the peninsula has enriched me with and use it as my journey in events continues. One of the most rewarding accomplishments I’ve been able to do is write these fun self-perspective blogs. Sharing my event stories and maybe providing some new and created ways of looking at all types of events has been gratifying. So this isn’t the end for our blogs just the passing of the baton to the next generation. If I had to leave everyone with one little nugget of wisdom it would be “Events should be fun, creative and a powerful way of self-expression. Enjoy the journey and don’t let the little bumps along the way spoil the success you are striving for.
