  • Nashville Wedding


    According to Travel & Leisure magazine, Nashville, Tennessee is one of the "friendliest cities in the United States." Do you know what this means? You shouldn’t have any trouble planning one of the most important days in your life. The city is filled with wedding vendors ready to fit you into the perfect dress, construct the perfect cake, and help create the perfect memories.


     


    Planning a Nashville Wedding: Highlights of the City


    From the ceremony to the reception site, plenty of attractions and venues offer delightful options for ceremonies and receptions. A strong Southern history with a deep musical past often serves as a theme for many Nashville weddings. The city is home to the Grand Ole Opry House, which is recognized as the home of country music. For your wedding, you can actually rent Studio A, Acuff Theatre, Opry Museum, Opry Plaza, or the Opry House itself. Your guests might enjoy the fabulous Nashville shopping, as well as the sites and sounds.


     


    Nashville Wedding Weather Considerations

    The winters in Nashville are relatively short and cool, while summers are extremely inconvenient for outdoor weddings, cascading curls, and catering outside. When planning an outdoor affair, consider the severe thunderstorms and tornadoes the city is prone to during the springtime and fall. Be prepared for alternate plans and keep an eye on weather forecasts. A wedding planned for the summer places guests in the midst of humid conditions and some of the hottest weather of the year. During July and August (and sometimes in September), it's not uncommon to battle temperatures reaching 100 degrees.


     


    Nashville Wedding Planning Tips & Ideas

    Beware of the peak tourist season when planning a Nashville wedding, as the summertime fills with visitors coming to enjoy the Country Music Fan Fair in June or Elvis Week in August. Hotels sell out fast and the prices during these events are a monster to boot.

  • Pocket wedding invitations are a sophisticated stationery option that keeps your invitation's inserts organized and streamlined. With a pocket inside the invitation, you won't have to worry about guests misplacing reception directions or response cards. Thinking about ordering pocketfold wedding invitations? Consider the following options:


     


    Pocket Wedding Invitations: Portable Pockets

     


    A portable pocket is a single pocket that allows you to print and insert your invitation text into it along with your supplemental inserts. This design is simple, with no opening or folding involved. It's a streamlined option that often makes for a lighter invitation and thus saves on shipping.


     


    Pocket Wedding Invitations: Bi-Fold Pocketfold

     


    A bi-fold pocket invitation has one fold and opens to reveal two panels. The main invitation's text will be printed on one side - typically the right side - whereas a pocket will be on the left panel. Another design option would be to have the invitation open vertically, with the pocket on the bottom half and the invitation's text on the top half.


     


    Pocket Wedding Invitations: Tri-Fold Pocketfold

     


    The tri-fold pocket design has two folds that open to reveal three panels.  The wording of the invitation typically lies on the center panel. This design presents you with the most customizable option, as you have two extra panels to work with; some couples will opt for a pocket on one panel, while those requiring multiple inserts will choose to have two pockets. Two pockets allow you to keep response cards separate from reception and direction details. A tri-fold design also accommodates bilingual invitations, as invitation text in a second language could be printed on the extra panel.


     


    Pocket Wedding Invitations: Make Your Own

     


    Some creative couples will opt for designing and making their own pocket invitations. The simplest design is the portable pocket; dress it up with a paper wraparound or a hand-tied ribbon encircling the stationary. Be sure to first create a carefully measured template that fits your chosen envelopes. Make your handmade pocket wedding invitations with the help of a quality paper cutter to ensure that your edges are clean and even. Double-sided adhesive is often recommended for ensuring your work is secure and smooth. Seek design advice from stationary shops and online resources before attempting to construct your own pocket wedding invitations.


     


    Pocket Wedding Invitations: Stuff It

     


    Once you have your design chosen, you'll need to stuff your pocket wedding invitations. Insert the reception card first, with the RSVP card and envelope on top of it. Essentially, keep the inserts that need returning at the forefront. When you've stuffed the pocket, close the invitation and then place it, facing up, into an addressed outer envelope.


     


    Send off your stylish pocket wedding invitation and await the return of those RSVP cards!

  • 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
    When she first smiled at me
    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

  • Couples looking to customize their wedding invitations and wedding save the date magnets on a budget might consider opting for printable wedding invitations. With countless templates and downloadable invitations available, brides and grooms can easily create unique stationery for their dream wedding.


     


    Printable Wedding Invitations: Templates

     


    Printable wedding invitation templates are available online and in some stationery stores. Many of these templates are free to download so budget-savvy couples can experiment with different looks at no cost. Because there are so many printable wedding invitation packages available, it's best to first establish your wedding's theme and brainstorm the features and basic design of your invitations before seeking templates. Find a template that best reflects your wedding. Some printable wedding invitations come fully designed; you merely need to add text and select a few basic layout or color details. Other printable wedding invitation templates are blank, giving creative couples the opportunity to design their invites from scratch.


     


    Printable Wedding Invitations: Customization

     


    Some printable wedding invitation templates are designed to be more customizable than others; that said, with the right software, any design could be altered to suit the couple's liking. Change fonts and colors and add photos or graphics to make the invitations one-of-a-kind. Look at designer invitations and find examples of what you love as a starting point. Consider working your wedding's theme and color scheme into the invitations. Add your own text to reflect the tone and formality of the event.


     


    Printable Wedding Invitations: Paper

     


    If you want your printable wedding invitations to look professional, choose high-quality paper with coordinating envelopes. While shops catering to wedding invitations certainly stock beautiful paper and card stock, so do craft stores, stationary shops and auction sites. Again, if you look at premade invitations as inspiration, you'll be able to determine which paper types best suit your intended look. Of course, with printable wedding invitations, you also have the option of sending your completed design electronically to friends and family. For last-minute events or eco-friendly couples, emailed invitations might be an appealing option.


     


    Printable Wedding Invitations: Printing

     


    Before you start printing your wedding invitations, make sure that you have the appropriate printing equipment. Some couples may opt to print from home. If you choose to use your home printer, be prepared with additional ink cartridges and anticipate that some invitations will need reprinting. Test your printer before starting to print large batches of invitations. Aim for the highest quality of printing you can get. Many couples will design their printable wedding invitations at home and then have a professional printing or photo service print the invitations. This guarantees high-quality printing and often expands printing options to include fancier papers and features like gold leaf detailing. If you're going to use the services of a printing company, have them print your invitations' inserts and addressed envelopes at the same time; the final project will look cohesive and you may be able to get a deal thanks to your large order.


     


    Printable Wedding Invitations: Added Touch

     


    To add dimension and softness to your printed wedding invitations, consider adding a ribbon or lace detail. A simple addition of texture will make your invitations seem more personalized and romantic.

  • 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.

    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
    When she first smiled at me
    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

  • Couples looking to customize their wedding invitations and wedding save the date magnets on a budget might consider opting for printable wedding invitations. With countless templates and downloadable invitations available, brides and grooms can easily create unique stationery for their dream wedding.


     


    Printable Wedding Invitations: Templates

     


    Printable wedding invitation templates are available online and in some stationery stores. Many of these templates are free to download so budget-savvy couples can experiment with different looks at no cost. Because there are so many printable wedding invitation packages available, it's best to first establish your wedding's theme and brainstorm the features and basic design of your invitations before seeking templates. Find a template that best reflects your wedding. Some printable wedding invitations come fully designed; you merely need to add text and select a few basic layout or color details. Other printable wedding invitation templates are blank, giving creative couples the opportunity to design their invites from scratch.


     


    Printable Wedding Invitations: Customization

     


    Some printable wedding invitation templates are designed to be more customizable than others; that said, with the right software, any design could be altered to suit the couple's liking. Change fonts and colors and add photos or graphics to make the invitations one-of-a-kind. Look at designer invitations and find examples of what you love as a starting point. Consider working your wedding's theme and color scheme into the invitations. Add your own text to reflect the tone and formality of the event.


     


    Printable Wedding Invitations: Paper

     


    If you want your printable wedding invitations to look professional, choose high-quality paper with coordinating envelopes. While shops catering to wedding invitations certainly stock beautiful paper and card stock, so do craft stores, stationary shops and auction sites. Again, if you look at premade invitations as inspiration, you'll be able to determine which paper types best suit your intended look. Of course, with printable wedding invitations, you also have the option of sending your completed design electronically to friends and family. For last-minute events or eco-friendly couples, emailed invitations might be an appealing option.


     


    Printable Wedding Invitations: Printing

     


    Before you start printing your wedding invitations, make sure that you have the appropriate printing equipment. Some couples may opt to print from home. If you choose to use your home printer, be prepared with additional ink cartridges and anticipate that some invitations will need reprinting. Test your printer before starting to print large batches of invitations. Aim for the highest quality of printing you can get. Many couples will design their printable wedding invitations at home and then have a professional printing or photo service print the invitations. This guarantees high-quality printing and often expands printing options to include fancier papers and features like gold leaf detailing. If you're going to use the services of a printing company, have them print your invitations' inserts and addressed envelopes at the same time; the final project will look cohesive and you may be able to get a deal thanks to your large order.


     


    Printable Wedding Invitations: Added Touch

     


    To add dimension and softness to your printed wedding invitations, consider adding a ribbon or lace detail. A simple addition of texture will make your invitations seem more personalized and romantic.

  • 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.
