We’ve all seen the gorgeous Pinterest photos of barn weddings: the rusticity and vintage charm, the faded beauty of farmland in all its glory. As a fad, the barn wedding has been gaining traction and creating lots of opportunities for great wedding photos.
Any large event that you plan is going to put a strain on your pocket and on the earth. Because you’re looking at up to hundreds of guests (all of whom need to be invited and fed) gathered in one place at one time, there will be ecological ramifications.
One of the questions we often get here at Eldredge Manor is when is the ideal time to have a wedding. Spring or summer? Weekend or weekday? Morning or evening? Although you’re free to have a wedding whenever it suits you best, there are optimal times for your Utah nuptials. Whether you’re looking to maximize attendance or simply make the most out of local deals, here’s our guide to timing your wedding just right.
On-line photos and lists outlining ideal wedding locations discuss only the glittering surface. You can go rustic outdoors or a hall that will allow you to bring in your own tables, food and decorations. While these are important things to look for, they’re much less important than ensuring your guests’ safety and comfort. Because you could have hundreds of people arriving to celebrate and wish you well, the best Utah wedding locations are those that not only look great, but are also equipped to handle the details of a wedding luncheon or reception.
We’ve all read the articles and browsed the slideshows on how to save money on planning a wedding. From setting a firm budget to holding the reception at home, there are countless ways to cut back and tighten your belt.
Vintage weddings offer something for everyone. A touch of romance for the bride and groom. Strong traditional undertones for the family. Lasting memories for everyone in the shape of beautiful photographs.
You are invited to a special BRIDAL OPEN HOUSE Tuesday evening, March 25, 2014 – exactly 100 years to the day of the first wedding reception held at the prestigious Eldredge Manor Reception Center back on March 25, 1914. The celebration will be held from 6:00 until 8:00 that evening (564 W. 400 North, Bountiful). The occasion also marks 40 years that the Williams family has operated the Eldredge Manor Reception Center – the longest running, privately owned reception center in the state. Brides-to-be are welcome to tour the facilities and try menu samples from a grand buffet complete with chocolate fountain. Historic tours will also be given during the 2-hour open house for any interested party.
While your wedding reception venue and the bride’s gorgeous dress are sure to set the tone for a wedding, perhaps nothing makes guests remember a wedding quite so well as the food. From full five-course meals to unique buffets, wedding cuisine that goes above and beyond the ordinary will surely keep people talking about the event long after “I do” has been said.
The one thing that will set the tone for your wedding more than themes or colors or even the reception hall you choose is how much money you have to spend. Although sitting down and creating a wedding budget might not seem like the most romantic first step in planning the wedding of your dreams, it’s never a good idea to start clipping photos out of bridal magazines or trying on wedding dresses until you know your wedding budget.
