Wedding Guests - Who to Invite, How To Decide

This week we will talk about the guests list.
Should you invite dad's friends from work? The store's messenger? 
Or deciding on short and valuable list of the closest ones?
Stay with me it will be interesting…  











To clarify the obvious here: I'm NOT suggesting you contact people to 
Tell them they're not invited.
If someone asks you if they're invited, there are ways you can tell them 
That you love them, you 
SO appreciate their interest, but no, they're not invited. 
You can always use these reasons:
Blame it on your ridiculously small budget, tell to your guests that the wedding is small 
And only for family,
Say your location is too small and can contain only family or you hadn’t Close the list.
Always remember that the uninvited guests will be offended but out of Love, 
Because they really are happy for you, be sensitive while telling them They're not invited. 
   

People You Should Not Invite to Your Wedding:
Exes:
Unless your ex is your best friend and your partner has no qualms whatsoever about your close relationship, there is absolutely no reason to invite former lovers to your wedding.
Your Boss:
Although it may seem awkward not to invite your boss, it may be even more awkward to invite him or her, especially if no one else from work is on your guest list. While etiquette once dictated that your boss was a must-invite, I say it depends on your office culture, the size of your team, and how comfortable you feel around your boss in general. Your wedding is intimate, no matter how many guests you have, and you want to feel at ease.
Colleagues of Parents:
While you may make it a point to not have strangers at your wedding, there is a likelihood that your parents or your fiancé's parents may want to include some people, like their colleagues, to the guest list. Well, it is a dilemma which many couples face. The workaround for this is to analyze how important these guests are to your parents. Are they really that close, or have your parents put their names on the guest list just on a whim.
Distant relatives
You don’t have to invite the father's aunt from the mother's side. If you don’t know her, she might herd your name once and she probably has Dementia for a long time. There is no need- she won't remember you got married this year…

Remember:
Creating a guest list is notoriously one of the most fraught parts of the wedding planning process. 
Good luck :)


Wedding Guest List











When me and my husband got married, both of our parents asked us 
To keep some invitations aside, so they will be able to invite their friends.
Of course they’ve invited people I have never seen before, 
And so does my husband, people who never knew 
I was exist before, but they came… today, while looking back, 
I wouldn’t invite anyone but family and some friends, 
Something small with a lot of meaning, because in the end, 
You want to remember who was with you in this day, 
And not the cousin's uncle who got drunk and puked on the dance floor. 
So, seat together and think who you want to invite, 
And don’t get to excited of cutting people of, it will pass.

So share and comment
See you on the next post,
 Love,

How To Pick your wedding Date?

So if you’ve already asked the big question and got the
Answer you wanted to hear, 
Now it’s the time to set a date. 
here are some ideas and options…


Found on weddingstagemanager.tumblr.com





















HOW TO PICK YOUR WEDDING DATE:


Whatever date you'll choose, don’t make it an iconic date, such as 
1.11.11, 1.4.14, 12.12.12 etc. those dates will cost a lot more, even
 Double than you would pay on a regular day! Choose a date that has Meaning for you.
 If you still haven't chose a topic for your wedding or a color, 
Maybe you should choose them by the season you are getting married in Or by your favorite one. 
Anyway, try setting a date not more than half a year since the proposal. 
Wedding plans takes time, dress fitting, flowers, tattoos and etc. it all Takes time, 
Budjet and planning. 

Tips for how to choose a date:
Eliminating all of the days it can't be. Super Bowl Sunday,

Daylight Savings. Then ask are your friend:

Are you a bridesmaid in another wedding? 

You probably don’t want to pick the same month, 

Especially if that bride is in your wedding party too, you will probably

Want to avoid picking those times too...

Consider what day you want your wedding to occur on. 
Sundays are usually less expensive than Saturdays. Is having a 
Saturday wedding so important that you're willing to pay more? 
The decision is yours, but be prepared for the cost implications.
Also consider what day of the week will be most convenient for your guests.
Will a lot of people need to travel to attend your wedding? 
If so, a Saturday wedding may be best so guests can arrive on 
Friday and fly or drive home on Sunday, if they desire.

Your date maybe dependent on the availability of the photographer, 
Especially if he/she is the only one you want photographing your wedding.
Any available dates your wedding date may be dictated by your caterer or wedding hall. 
If you have a particular venue in mind, you may be limited by their availability.
 This is a concession you will need to make if your heart is set on this particular location.

When me and my husband decided to get married, we knew immediately 
Which date to choose- the date of our first date. 
This date was so meaningful to us and its still unforgettable, 
And I'm talking about the date… on our first date we felt so connected, 
We held hands and talked all the night long… we listened to music and It felt 
Like we know each others for years. And so, right after 
I proposed we knew that we only had three months to plan a wedding…
The wedding itself wasn’t as important as the closer, this date will be ours for life… 
So, I suggest –when you look for a date, follow your heart.

Love

Marriage proposal


This week we will talk about marriage proposal, who's asking who?
When? Where? And what is the tradition?
It will be interesting…  
















Marriage Proposals: 7 Romantic Ways to Propose: 

1.    Turn off all the lights in your apartment and make a trail of candles that leads to a circle of votives positioned around the ring.

2.   Upload a video of your proposal to YouTube (tell her you have a hysterical home movie to show her).

3.    Create a personalized fortune cookie with your own proposal message.

4. Scratch your proposal into the frost on her car's windshield.

5. Gather your families together for a barbecue and make it a family affair.

6. Meet for a drink at a posh hotel bar. When it's time to go, casually mention that you've already reserved a room for the night. When you open the hotel room door, have roses, candles and champagne all set up -- everything for a perfect surprise proposal.

7.Ask the pastry chef to write, "Will you marry me?" in chocolate sauce around the rim of her dessert plate.



One of the biggest moments in your life is when you propose marriage or are proposed to.
Here are ideas and tips on how to make your marriage
Proposal a memorable and delightful experience.
1.Find The Right Engagement Ring: probably, the ring will inherited by your future daughter…
You must choose the right one. Remember, all her friends, family and work associates 
Will see it. Do not disappoint!
2. If you are going to propose in the open air- check the weather so there won't be any mistakes.

3.Kneel!
There is something so charming and romantic about a man on one knee asking the love of his

Life to marry Him. Even if you're not a traditional guy, it will add to the seriousness and

Lovingness of the proposal. 

4. Stick to your plan:
Keep your marriage proposal simple. The more complicated the marriage proposal is,

The more things that Could go wrong with your proposal plans!

Just because you've asked, doesn't mean she is ready to say yes.

 If your sweetheart says maybe, take it in Stride and give her some time to consider the proposal. 

5.  Don't Expect Her to Say Yes Immediately. Sometimes she needs to think about the answer, but Don’t worry its ok. You shouldn’t go easy in this.

Just because you've asked, doesn't mean she is ready to say yes.

 If your sweetheart says maybe, take it in stride and give her some time to consider the proposal. 



















My marriage proposal was on top of the "CARLTON" hotel in TLV, 

Next to the pool, placed on the hotels roof, by the sunset. 

I must say, I was the one proposing. We've been dating for 7 months 

But we knew we want to be together and we've already talked about getting married. 

The official proposal I did, I've invited him to a dinner on the hotels roof, 

Showed him the view and the sunset, read him a lovely poem and gave him a necklace

With a green labradorite stone. He wore it until recently.  

I was very excited and he was pretty shocked… there was many people in that restaurant 

And everybody was very excited for us. After 3 months we got married.
