Okay, what I failed to mention yesterday is my lack of planning with the "small details" of my wedding.
- What farewell gifts do I want for my guests?
This is a tough question. I would probably want to stay away from a candy buffet or the "oh-so-popular" monogrammed coozie. What is something traditional, yet still memorable of our special day? Remember, I am from Kentucky and we are getting married on Derby Day. Would playing into a theme be too much and overly cheesy? One of my IRL (in real life) friends recommended doing a mini bottle of maker's mark with a derby pie recipe attached. Or how about these chocoalte horseshoe's from "A Taste of Kentucky". Perhaps I could think of a clever saying to put on the sticker? Or what about these horse chocolate suckers?
- Do I need table place cards? (aka sit down dinner or buffet style)
I have been struggling with this question. We are having a relatively small wedding (about 150 invited) so we are able to have a sit-down dinner if so desired. However, I have not heard good things about sit down dinners recently. People have to wait for their food, the food is cold, plates get mixed up, you have to have a seating chart, etc. etc. Our venue gives us the option to have partial buffet (ugh, i hate the word buffet, it's totally NOT the kind of buffet you're probably thinking), partial meal stations , which is sounding better and better everyday. This option gives guests the flexibility to eat what they want, sit where they want, and to go back for more if they wish.
