Seating Arrangements: Keep It Simple

Posted by on Aug 17, 2014 in Bob's Blogs | 0 comments

Selecting the wedding venue is really the first stop in planning and budgeting a wedding. Venue choice revolves around guest count. So, really, before shopping for venues, wedding photographer, florist, etc. couples need to know their approximate guest count, based on their respective families and friends. I’ve heard of many couples who tally up the people in their lives and can easily add up to 300 people. Which is definitely doable if you have the venue space and the budget for that, and the catering, etc. to accommodate that many people....

Rehearsal Dinner Basics

Posted by on Jun 15, 2013 in Bob's Blogs | 0 comments

Don’t let the name fool you – it’s not just a rehearsal. Here’s everything you need to know: What it is? The rehearsal dinner is traditionally held the night before the wedding, most often a Friday, and usually starts about seven P.M. This leaves time for attendants who can’t take the day off to get out of work to attend the rehearsal itself at around 5:30 P.M., and get to the dinner. For a Sunday or holiday wedding, you have more options. Since the rehearsal dinner has become more of a celebration in its own...

Developing and Managing a Timeline

Posted by on Mar 5, 2013 in Bob's Blogs | 0 comments

It is very important to have a timeline for your reception so that your DJ or Band, Photographer, Event Manager and Wedding Coordinator are all on the same page.  Someone needs to be in charge to make sure that everyone stays on schedule, allowing the event to run smoothly.  In other words…make sure you have a professional managing your event! I have witnessed many mistakes while I have been a guest at weddings, where it is obvious that a professional has not implemented a plan of action. Examples: Everyone is having a great time...

Alcohol at Your Reception

Posted by on Jan 25, 2013 in Bob's Blogs | 0 comments

Although we offer a cash bar option for weddings, it is not the most appropriate choice. When guests are invited to your home, do you have a cash bar out on your deck? Probably not. Many guests may not carry cash or credit cards with them, which creates an awkward situation for both your guests and the bartenders. In lieu of a cash bar for your wedding, I recommend offering a “light bar” with beer, wine and champagne. This option is much easier on the budget. Approximately 90% of weddings held at Olde Towne are beer and wine only....
