What to Wear: Celebrating a February Wedding

by Tanya Brame

February is considered the month of love and romance. When celebrating a wedding in February, why not consider choosing attire in bright reds, and beautiful brown/chocolates?

RED- an emotionally intense color. It is the color of fire associated with words such as energy, strength, power, determination, passion, desire, and love.

BROWN- on the other hand, is the more serious down-to-earth color with properties like stability, structure and support. Brown stands for protection and a sense of responsibility, strong need for security, belonging to a family, and having lots of good friends.

All these powerful words could also be used to describe what one would want in a marriage. How appropriate would it be to incorporate these colors into your wedding attire?

Here are a few examples:

3 Reasons That Winter Weddings Are Better Than Summer Weddings

Summer may have a leg up on the other seasons in the wedding world, but what many brides-to-be tend to overlook is the vast qualities of a winter wedding. Winter captures the calm elegance of nature and the beauty of a crisp winter day. What bride wouldn’t desire this elegance on her wedding day? Not only does winter capture an eclectic bridal atmosphere, but it also offers many other wedding options that summer cannot match.

Setting Up a Food Buffet

With the holidays approaching, having a dinner party is a great way to touch base with family/friends near and far. It will take some planning ahead, but it can be done with ease following the simple guidelines listed below.

  • To avoid major pile-ups and traffic jams, plan your buffet by gathering all serving dishes and arranging them on the table in the order of the dishes you would like to serve.
  • Place sticky notes in the serving platters with the name of the dish. This will help you remember which food goes in what dish.
  • Have a starting and ending point for your buffet. Try a two- sided buffet so that it can be utilized from both sides.
  • Place plates at the beginning of the buffet in short stacks. If using disposable plates, choose heavier ones so that the food stays on the plate without spilling.

Next on the buffet table is the food.

  • Line food up according to temperature.
  • First stop being the cold items, followed by the hot.
  • This will guarantee that the hot food won’t get cold while the guests are walking to their seats.
  • Provide a balanced meal with a salad, protein, vegetable, and starch (ex. bread or pasta).
  • Plan your menu with guests in mind. Choose foods that are easy to serve and eat while sitting or standing.
  • Serve dishes that your guests recognize.
  • If you decide to serve a dish that is unfamiliar to your guests, use name cards to help them identify the food item.
  • You may want to consider including a short list of ingredients for those with food allergies.
  • Make sure all dishes have a coordinating serving utensil.

Cutlery should be placed at the end of the buffet right after the food services. There is nothing more annoying than having to balance cutlery and napkins while trying to dish food onto your plate.

Make utensils “grab and go” by wrapping each set in the napkin and tying with a decorative ribbon or napkin ring. Provide utensils that guest will need to use. If a spoon is not needed don’t provide one.
