Big Wedding Problem Solving

Planning a wedding with a huge guest list? There are special challenges to consider!

Potential problems:
  • Parking
  • Adequate number of helpers to set up/clean up/serve food
  • Receiving Line
  • Guests feeling lost in the crowd
  • Guests not being able to hear ceremony speaking
  • Amount of food at reception
  • Lots of gifts on gift tables, with the potential for theft

Possible solutions to solve these issues:

  • Carefully choose venue and take parking into consideration
  • Hire help, or have the venue staff clean up
  • Skip an official receiving line or have the receiving line pass by the 'head table'
  • Give each guest a special guest favor to show your appreciation
  • Make sure microphones & a sound system are used during the ceremony
  • Hire an experienced caterer who can accurately plan food amounts
  • Keep a trusted person stationed at the gift table at all times

Hope this helps get you thinking! Visit www.NWweddingplace.com for more wedding planning help & ideas!

On Location Wedding Report

Here are some wedding details from the large wedding I helped with last week:
Wedding colors were sage green & ivory, used in table decor, reception food tables, the bride's gown, candles, and ceremony decor.
The bride & groom chose to have a sand ceremony and communion time, while wedding singers sang two songs (chosen by the couple).
The bride & groom chose to say personalized vows to each other, and also have the pastor read traditional vows.
When the ceremony was done, the VIP (family & best friends) section was released first to the reception where "reserved" seating awaited them near the head table.
The reception was in a very large tent, set up on the same grounds as the ceremony location.
A jazz band was hired to play as background music for the reception.
A professional catering crew was hired to do the food, which included veggies, fruit, cupcakes, cookies, meatballs, fruit tarts, a cranberry punch, and other misc. small desserts.
Decor items included various sizes of glass containers with candles inside, tulle, fabric, live plants, fresh eucalyptus, white lilies, & clear glass rocks.
The bride & groom shared bites of their wedding cake, which was carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, and fresh flowers as a topper and accents.
The bride & groom left the reception in a limo approx. 30 min before most of the guests left.

Hope this information gives you some great ideas! http://www.nwweddingplace.com/
