A wedding ceremony marks the beginning of a marriage, and a couple's life together. Wedding ceremonies may be a civil or religious rite that can take place anywhere - at a church, in the gardens, at the beach, or at the city hall. Modern-day weddings can now also take place in the Internet (what is known as "Online Wedding).
From the bride's march down the aisle to the wedding reception, there are a number of traditional wedding aspects that make a wedding ceremony special. It is important that the couple 'include' their guests and the people around them in the celebration by guiding and informing them of what is happening at any given time. This is made possible by wedding ceremony programs. Some seating arrangements create a circle around the bride and groom compared to the traditional formation where the bride and groom are at the head of the room.
A wedding program (also called church programs, ceremony programs, or "The Order of Woship") is a personalized guidebook for the guests attending. Essentially similar to that of a program at a theater play, wedding programs serve the following purposes:
They serve as a record of the wedding ceremony, providing guests with the order and details of the events that will happen in the ceremony.
Modern programs have been customized to the style of the bride and groom, creating a unique experience, often the bride and groom coordinate the look and feel of the ceremony, programs, and displays to have the same style.
A program is generally broken down into 3 sections, with the additional detailed information listed below:
Wedding programs are usually ordered from the same printer who does the wedding invitations. Other couples, however, opt to do their wedding programs on their own - it gives a couple a chance to be more flexible and creative while saving money.
Wedding programs are one of the little details that make such a big day extra special. Ordered ready-made or done personally, a wedding program can be made unique by the expressive feelings of love and joy that it conveys.
Not only is it a great idea, it is also helpful in ways you would not think of.
Having late night food helps guests that burned off many calories dancing from the music at the reception. Of course you think of dancing as a non-exercise activity, in actuality it is. Some people get more exercise in dancing at a wedding reception compared to regular working out. This is why some complain about their feet hurting at the end of the night and the next day.
Your guests have eaten at about 5 or 6 pm, they are starting to get hungry again or all they have in their stomachs is liquid. As you may know liquid in someones stomach is not the same a solid food, it also is digested faster than solid food. Some guests may also have had alcoholic beverages. Making them more dehydrated. In essence, you have hungry, slightly tired, slightly dehydrated guests at 10:30 or 11pm.
Having food options at this hour helps a number of reasons, first off it brings energy back. Secondly it satisfies hunger, and last; it helps to slow the absorption of alcohol. Some guests may have a hangover the next day and eating food helps to bring vital nutrients back into the body that have been lost from drinking alcohol. It also reduces alcohol effects on the body. After several glasses of water and food items – your guests could be ready for the trek home.
The takeaway is – think if your guests when it comes to late night food, be sure to get some options that are cost effective and reduce the amount of hangover for your wedding guests the next day. This also saves a trip for your guests to late night (24x7) restaurants.
