EDMONTON WEDDING PLANNER: Tip Tuesday Wedding RSVPS

WEDDING TIPS GUESTS WHO WON’T RSVP || EDMONTON WEDDING PLANNER

edmonton wedding planner invitationsNine out of ten brides will be frustrated at some point with guests and their failure to RSVP to their wedding. In fact, I could say its about 99% of the time. Everyone has the guests who know about the wedding and respond immediately, we have the guests that you know are coming and don’t reply – We’re looking at you Aunt Margret. It’s poor etiquette not to respond in one form or another. If the guest wants to keep the invitation and RSVP card – that’s fantastic but I’m sure they can RSVP with you another way.

So how long do you wait? Well you wait until your RSVP date – usually a month prior to the wedding, you will need your head count and allergies for your venue at the latest finalized a week prior and usually a fairly solid number a month out, things change and they will accept your finalized number a week out. So what do you do about these guests who cannot commit? Have someone call them or do it yourself. For example if it was my aunt on my mother’s side I would ask her to call, or call myself. It isn’t the most fun part of the wedding, but it has to be done and you’ll need the names for the seating chart as well. The earlier you have it completed the happier you will be.

For those who cannot commit after the RSVP date, inform them that you need to provide a final number. Personally I would consider them not attending and not reserve a seat for them.

GEOMETRIC PLACE CARD HOLDERS || EDMONTON WEDDING PLANNER

If you don’t know me well, know that I’m a sucker for anything geometric, especially if it’s metallic. If I was planning an event I would totally have these to hold place cards – plus your guests can take them home and they could hold up photos later! Win-Win!

You can find these magnificent place card holders on etsy here!

Sydney + Jordan were married in late June on a beautiful sunny afternoon at the St. Albert Catholic parish grotto. It was a beautiful ceremony with many joyful moments. They then went around St. Albert for some formal photos, to which they were sprinkled on – but that did not dampen their spirit and in fact, I must say made their photos even better!

Their evening reception was held in the newly renovated Polish Hall and conference center, guests signed a beautiful wooden wall hanging in which they planed on hanging in their new home (I wish this was a concept when we got married, I love it!). Centerpieces were spray painted novels, candles, and arranged flowers. I love the eclectic-ness of the centerpieces. Mother of the bride kindly created the napkins as matching the color that Sydney had envisioned was difficult, as well her mother lovingly created the wedding cake and the absolutely stunning cake stands – you had to see them in person.

It was a beautiful day filled with many details and much happiness, we wish all the many years of happiness together!

EDMONTON WEDDING PLANNER || Outdoor Ceremonies in Alberta

TUESDAY TIPS || EDMONTON WEDDING PLANNER

Weather in Alberta is some of the most unpredictable in the world – I’m certain. Over the past nine wedding sessions, I feel I have seen it all. You can never be too prepared when it comes to an outdoor ceremony. Luckily in those years, I have not yet to have an outdoor ceremony relocated. We have many beautiful options in the Edmonton area from Rainer Gardens, Lions Gardens, La Cite Francophone, Hasting Lakes, The Art Gallery of Alberta, and so on. However, as beautiful as these spots go, we all know it can go from a beautiful +30*C to a thundering windy mess in less than thirty minutes. Thus, you need to plan ahead and book a “back up” location or discuss it with your venue when making outdoor ceremony arrangements. Make sure the most important part of the day is weather proof!

When thinking about outdoor ceremonies please also consider your guests. During winter blankets and perhaps some coco, and during summer, fans, water bottles, and some umbrellas are great!

Shreyasi + Frank were married in November, but you wouldn’t know it with the color pallet we went with, bold jewel tones. We combined their heritage with a Hindu ceremony as well as a Native dance later on in the evening. It was an absolutely beautiful wedding at the Art Gallery of Alberta, and going with the art theme they even had Giselle Dennis doing a live painting throughout the evening which now resides in their living room.  Lindsay Nagy, local recording artist – also a previous client, was there to sign during the ceremony and reception. I apologize in advance, I had a very hard time picking photos from their wedding, so there’s quite a few!
