  • Groom wedding cake:

    A groom wedding cake - often called a groom's cake and sometimes a groom's wedding cake - is a tradition that dates back to the Victorian era in England. For a long time, the groom wedding cake was popular mostly in the Southern United States, but in recent years it has been showing up at weddings from coast to coast.


     


    Groom wedding cake - where it all started:

    When the custom of a groom wedding cake was first introduced, slices were boxed up and given to the unmarried women who were at the wedding. Each woman was then supposed to put her box underneath her pillow that night - and, legend had it, she would then dream of the man she was going to marry. Nowadays, everyone is entitled to a slice of the groom wedding cake, but it's still common practice to slice it up and box individual pieces for guests to take home.


    Originally, the groom wedding cake was a fruitcake. That's no longer exclusively the case, but groom wedding cakes still tend to be dark - chocolate or red velvet cakes are frequent choices. Rum, brandy and other liquor flavorings are also often used in a groom wedding cake. Unlike the flowers and flourishes of a traditional wedding cake, the decorations on a groom wedding cake are usually designed to reflect the groom's heritage, profession, hobbies, favorite sports team or another of his interests. Groom wedding cakes have been fashioned in the shape of baseballs, footballs, basketballs, hockey pucks - any piece of sports equipment imaginable! In fact, sometimes it's not unusual for the groom wedding cake to be as elaborately decorated as the wedding cake itself.


    The groom wedding cake is generally given as a gift from the bride to the groom. Even so, some grooms pick out the cake themselves, but many brides don't tell their fiancés how the groom wedding cake is going to be designed, so it's a surprise for the guys when they first see it. The groom wedding cake is often served as dessert at the rehearsal dinner, but there's no established rule about when to serve a groom wedding cake. Some couples save the groom wedding cake for an after-party treat for the wedding party and close friends and family. When it's part of the main wedding reception, the groom wedding cake is displayed alongside the traditional wedding cake, which is sometimes called the "bride's cake". Whenever the groom wedding cake is served, it's customary for the groom to be the one doing the cutting and serving.


    If the groom wedding cake is sliced and served during the reception, couples can still follow the tradition of boxing pieces for guests to take home - all the guests, not just the unmarried women. These can even serve as wedding favors; if couples decide to do this, they might want to attach attractive charms or other items to the ribbons, make sure the boxes for the groom wedding cake match the theme colors of the wedding or use attractive, eco-friendly packaging that the guests can re-use.

Elegant, ethnic, ornate and chic designs will all still reflect your culture and nuptial theme.

    Some invitation retailers can import invitations from India. Modern, artistic and traditional designs with distinctive features on vibrant handmade papers and ethnic fabrics will set the palette for your big day.

  • I loved her first Artist: Heartland Album: Not Provided Description Not Provided Lyrics Look at the two of you dancing that way
    Lost in the moment and each others face
    So much in love you're alone in this place
    Like there's nobody else in the world
    I was enough for her not long ago
    I was her number one
    She told me so
    And she still means the world to me
    Just so you know
    So be careful when you hold my girl
    Time changes everything
    Life must go on
    And I'm not gonna stand in your way

    But I loved her first and I held her first
    And a place in my heart will always be hers
    From the first breath she breathed
    When she first smiled at me
    I knew the love of a father runs deep
    And I prayed that she'd find you someday
    But it's still hard to give her away
    I loved her first

    How could that beautiful woman with you
    Be the same freckle face kid that I knew
    The one that I read all those fairy tales to
    And tucked into bed all those nights
    And I knew the first time I saw you with her
    It was only a matter of time

    But I loved her first and I held her first
    And a place in my heart will always be hers
    From the first breath she breathed
    When she first smiled at me
    I knew the love of a father runs deep
    And I prayed that she'd find you someday
    But it's still hard to give her away
    I loved her first

    From the first breath she breathed

    I knew the love of a father runs deep
    Someday you might know what I'm going through
    When a miracle smiles up at you
    I loved her first

  • For creative brides, do-it-yourself wedding invitations or save the date magnets might be a rewarding challenge. Often the budget-friendly choice, creating your own invitations can give you the creative freedom and reflection of personal style that isn't available from many stationary providers.


     


    Do-It-Yourself Wedding Invitations: Learn and Experiment

     


    Even crafty types probably have a lot to learn; consider signing up for a class at a local craft or design store and familiarize yourself with specialty papers, stamping techniques and artful folding. Consult with books, online resources and other do-it-yourself brides when brainstorming your invitations' designs. As you start to narrow down your options, practice and experiment with your ideas. You may discover that translating an idea into a tangible craft is not as simple as it seems; conversely, you may encounter a fresh idea once you start to play with the actual materials. Consult with friends and contacts that have graphic-design backgrounds. They may have valuable layout and wording insight to contribute.


     


    Do-It-Yourself Wedding Invitations: Start with the Basics

     


    You'll probably want to buy envelopes rather than make them, so pick your envelopes before you start making your invitations. This way, you can design with the envelope measurements in mind; you want the invites and all additional inserts to slide in and out easily. After you've selected envelopes, consider your wedding colors and formality of the occasion. Select paper that reflects the style of the day and coordinates with your palette. Many brides opt for classic neutral colors, but there's plenty of room for creative freedom when designing your own. Visit stationary stores and invitation suppliers to check out invitation designs you may want to adopt as your own. Single panel, folded, tri-folded and other shapes and designs will each present unique advantages and challenges.


     


    Do-It-Yourself Wedding Invitations: Start Early and Stock Up

     


    As soon as you can, make a sample of your do-it-yourself invitations. This way you'll have an idea about which supplies you need and how much time to realistically budget for their creation. Always buy more supplies than you think you need, as mistakes happen. Find supplies at craft stores, through online resources, and at stationary and invitation-specific retailers. Don't be afraid to consult with the experts as you try to make your vision become reality. If you're designing your invitations on a computer, local print shops will accommodate your printing needs. Do your research as you design your invites. Supply costs can add up; if you're not careful, a do-it-yourself invitation can cost more than a one purchased through a stationary company.


     


    Do-It-Yourself Wedding Invitations: Assembly Lines and Recruited Help

     


    Be efficient with your time and prepare supplies in advance. Instead of creating one invitation at a time, do your cutting and folding and stamping in batches and then put them together. Treat the card-creation process as an assembly line. Anticipate that making your own invitations will be a lengthy process and expect to take up to two weeks making them. Recruit family and friends to help out. Making invitations together can be a fun bonding time; just be sure to have a clear template and to proofread every invitation carefully before mailing anything.

  • Phoenix Wedding DJs

    A DJ can be a wonderful addition to any reception – communicating with the crowd and really setting the mood for the entire reception.  It’s important to get an experienced DJ who can help ensure that everyone is having a delightful time at your reception. There are many experienced Phoenix wedding DJs to choose from, and a few important tips will help you choose the right one.


     


    Phoenix Wedding DJs: Experience Counts


    The very last thing you want is a DJ who is just learning the ropes or someone who isn’t experienced in handling your type of reception.  It’s important to make sure your DJ has been in the business for a while and knows how to entertain and play the songs you have chosen.  For instance, Desert Audio DJ Services http://desertaudio.com/ has been in the business since 1986 and has entertained for smaller weddings of 50 guests and large affairs of more than 500.  Professional DJ services cannot be taken for granted!


     


    Phoenix Wedding DJs: Read Client Reviews

    It’s easier to determine whether you’ll be happy with a particular DJ after reading real reviews from past clients.  If the DJ has a website, you can also check there for testimonials and further information. For instance, Professional Mobile Entertainment Disc Jockey Services has been a favorite amongst Phoenix couples.  They also offer specific wedding DJ services designed to entertain and ensure that all of your guests are having a good time.


     


    Phoenix Wedding DJs: Tips and Ideas

    No matter what, always ask for a sample or demo from a DJ you’re considering.  Many record their performances at weddings to show potential clients, so if they don’t have a demo, you may want to consider moving on to the next DJ on your list.  Also, when you meet with a DJ, ensure that he or she is the actual DJ that will be performing for your reception.  It’s important to get a ‘feel’ for the DJ and decide whether or not you click with their personality and want them to handle the entertainment for your wedding.

    By following these guidelines as you peruse options for Phoenix wedding DJs, you can help to ensure that everything goes smoothly on the big day.

  • Planning a beach wedding? Let your invitations reflect the theme of your big day. Beach wedding invitations can capture the relaxed sun-kissed feel of the event you're planning and let guests know what to anticipate in advance of your dream day.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Details

     


    A beach wedding accommodates many design styles and personalities; consider your wedding's overall design scheme before ordering your invitations or save the date magnets. For a natural, serene wedding, capture breezy simplicity on parchment or linen invitations. Add seaside-inspired elements like seashells and coral, or tie in a nautical theme with stripes, anchor motifs and rustic details. Garden or tropical flower designs, such as hibiscus flowers or bamboo shoots, will point to your definition of "beach wedding." If the beach wedding is also a destination wedding, use the ceremony's location as part of your stationary strategy. Cleverly use a watermark behind the wording: a sandcastle, flip-flops, a sailboat or palm tree. Photography works well, too; incorporate a photograph of the beach landscape in your invites, or use a picture of you and your spouse-to-be by the water. Personalize the beach wedding invitations to reflect you as a couple.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Colors

     


    The color palette used in your beach wedding invitations can both reflect the colors in your wedding and the colors of the beach setting. Sage greens, light blues and soft browns will capture a serene by-the-water feel, while vibrant colors like pinks, corals and azure blues might allude to a more tropical affair. A wedding at sunset might dictate richer colors against dark stationary. Consider what the wedding programs will look like at your beachside wedding and try to design invitations that coordinate with those paper choices. By blending your wedding colors with the location, you'll be creating invitations that reflect both your personal style and your big day.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Unique Design

     


    Because beach weddings are often casual and unique expressions of a bride and groom, take advantage of the creative license granted you and use theme-revealing graphics, additional textures, layered materials and loose inserts. Use rope or hand-tied bows instead of a paper wrapped band around your invites; let seashells or beads give your stationary dimension; add a shimmering sand-like border.  Some stationary providers even provide beach-scented paper or offer beach-related confetti shapes. The options are seemingly endless.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Wording

     


    Let the invitation wording reflect your beach wedding location. Include a poem or short romantic prose about exchanging vows on the sand. Use words like "paradise" or "twilight" and reference the waves, the sun and the romance of the beach. Even the most formally worded invitations can include an insert that specifies location and accommodation information and alludes to the feel of the area. Use every opportunity to use your invitation to get guests excited for your beach wedding.

  • For creative brides, do-it-yourself wedding invitations or save the date magnets might be a rewarding challenge. Often the budget-friendly choice, creating your own invitations can give you the creative freedom and reflection of personal style that isn't available from many stationary providers.


     


    Do-It-Yourself Wedding Invitations: Learn and Experiment

     


    Even crafty types probably have a lot to learn; consider signing up for a class at a local craft or design store and familiarize yourself with specialty papers, stamping techniques and artful folding. Consult with books, online resources and other do-it-yourself brides when brainstorming your invitations' designs. As you start to narrow down your options, practice and experiment with your ideas. You may discover that translating an idea into a tangible craft is not as simple as it seems; conversely, you may encounter a fresh idea once you start to play with the actual materials. Consult with friends and contacts that have graphic-design backgrounds. They may have valuable layout and wording insight to contribute.


     


    Do-It-Yourself Wedding Invitations: Start with the Basics

     


    You'll probably want to buy envelopes rather than make them, so pick your envelopes before you start making your invitations. This way, you can design with the envelope measurements in mind; you want the invites and all additional inserts to slide in and out easily. After you've selected envelopes, consider your wedding colors and formality of the occasion. Select paper that reflects the style of the day and coordinates with your palette. Many brides opt for classic neutral colors, but there's plenty of room for creative freedom when designing your own. Visit stationary stores and invitation suppliers to check out invitation designs you may want to adopt as your own. Single panel, folded, tri-folded and other shapes and designs will each present unique advantages and challenges.


     


    Do-It-Yourself Wedding Invitations: Start Early and Stock Up

     


    As soon as you can, make a sample of your do-it-yourself invitations. This way you'll have an idea about which supplies you need and how much time to realistically budget for their creation. Always buy more supplies than you think you need, as mistakes happen. Find supplies at craft stores, through online resources, and at stationary and invitation-specific retailers. Don't be afraid to consult with the experts as you try to make your vision become reality. If you're designing your invitations on a computer, local print shops will accommodate your printing needs. Do your research as you design your invites. Supply costs can add up; if you're not careful, a do-it-yourself invitation can cost more than a one purchased through a stationary company.


     


    Do-It-Yourself Wedding Invitations: Assembly Lines and Recruited Help

     


    Be efficient with your time and prepare supplies in advance. Instead of creating one invitation at a time, do your cutting and folding and stamping in batches and then put them together. Treat the card-creation process as an assembly line. Anticipate that making your own invitations will be a lengthy process and expect to take up to two weeks making them. Recruit family and friends to help out. Making invitations together can be a fun bonding time; just be sure to have a clear template and to proofread every invitation carefully before mailing anything.

  • Phoenix Wedding DJs

    A DJ can be a wonderful addition to any reception – communicating with the crowd and really setting the mood for the entire reception.  It’s important to get an experienced DJ who can help ensure that everyone is having a delightful time at your reception. There are many experienced Phoenix wedding DJs to choose from, and a few important tips will help you choose the right one.


     


    Phoenix Wedding DJs: Experience Counts


    The very last thing you want is a DJ who is just learning the ropes or someone who isn’t experienced in handling your type of reception.  It’s important to make sure your DJ has been in the business for a while and knows how to entertain and play the songs you have chosen.  For instance, Desert Audio DJ Services http://desertaudio.com/ has been in the business since 1986 and has entertained for smaller weddings of 50 guests and large affairs of more than 500.  Professional DJ services cannot be taken for granted!


     


    Phoenix Wedding DJs: Read Client Reviews

    It’s easier to determine whether you’ll be happy with a particular DJ after reading real reviews from past clients.  If the DJ has a website, you can also check there for testimonials and further information. For instance, Professional Mobile Entertainment Disc Jockey Services has been a favorite amongst Phoenix couples.  They also offer specific wedding DJ services designed to entertain and ensure that all of your guests are having a good time.


     


    Phoenix Wedding DJs: Tips and Ideas

    No matter what, always ask for a sample or demo from a DJ you’re considering.  Many record their performances at weddings to show potential clients, so if they don’t have a demo, you may want to consider moving on to the next DJ on your list.  Also, when you meet with a DJ, ensure that he or she is the actual DJ that will be performing for your reception.  It’s important to get a ‘feel’ for the DJ and decide whether or not you click with their personality and want them to handle the entertainment for your wedding.

    By following these guidelines as you peruse options for Phoenix wedding DJs, you can help to ensure that everything goes smoothly on the big day.

  • Planning a beach wedding? Let your invitations reflect the theme of your big day. Beach wedding invitations can capture the relaxed sun-kissed feel of the event you're planning and let guests know what to anticipate in advance of your dream day.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Details

     


    A beach wedding accommodates many design styles and personalities; consider your wedding's overall design scheme before ordering your invitations or save the date magnets. For a natural, serene wedding, capture breezy simplicity on parchment or linen invitations. Add seaside-inspired elements like seashells and coral, or tie in a nautical theme with stripes, anchor motifs and rustic details. Garden or tropical flower designs, such as hibiscus flowers or bamboo shoots, will point to your definition of "beach wedding." If the beach wedding is also a destination wedding, use the ceremony's location as part of your stationary strategy. Cleverly use a watermark behind the wording: a sandcastle, flip-flops, a sailboat or palm tree. Photography works well, too; incorporate a photograph of the beach landscape in your invites, or use a picture of you and your spouse-to-be by the water. Personalize the beach wedding invitations to reflect you as a couple.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Colors

     


    The color palette used in your beach wedding invitations can both reflect the colors in your wedding and the colors of the beach setting. Sage greens, light blues and soft browns will capture a serene by-the-water feel, while vibrant colors like pinks, corals and azure blues might allude to a more tropical affair. A wedding at sunset might dictate richer colors against dark stationary. Consider what the wedding programs will look like at your beachside wedding and try to design invitations that coordinate with those paper choices. By blending your wedding colors with the location, you'll be creating invitations that reflect both your personal style and your big day.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Unique Design

     


    Because beach weddings are often casual and unique expressions of a bride and groom, take advantage of the creative license granted you and use theme-revealing graphics, additional textures, layered materials and loose inserts. Use rope or hand-tied bows instead of a paper wrapped band around your invites; let seashells or beads give your stationary dimension; add a shimmering sand-like border.  Some stationary providers even provide beach-scented paper or offer beach-related confetti shapes. The options are seemingly endless.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Wording

     


    Let the invitation wording reflect your beach wedding location. Include a poem or short romantic prose about exchanging vows on the sand. Use words like "paradise" or "twilight" and reference the waves, the sun and the romance of the beach. Even the most formally worded invitations can include an insert that specifies location and accommodation information and alludes to the feel of the area. Use every opportunity to use your invitation to get guests excited for your beach wedding.
