The busy bride-to-be is racing around trying to make sure that the “to do” list is on target for the big “I do.” The bridal shower presents a fabulous opportunity for her to relax and hand over the organizer’s reins (albeit briefly). The bride-to-be gets to share pre-wedding excitement (and nerves) with the lovely ladies in her life. In turn, they shower the bride-to-be with thoughtful gifts and profound wisdom.
The bride should choose her maid of honor with care, this pivotal role should be given to her nearest and dearest friend. There’s more to it than just wandering down the aisle, straightening the brides train. This is a role that carries a lot of responsibility, the brides right-hand-woman, the maid of honor needs to be cool, calm and collected. Chief problem solver, organizer, supporter and listener, the maid of honor is there to keep order and make sure the bride doesn’t go crazy!
How about this for a bizarre concept? Wedding guests arrive at the wedding venue and witness the whole amazing day through their own eyes, not through the lens of their cameras or mobile phones. No click-click-clicking or standing up and leaning over Great Auntie’s colossal hat trying to get the perfect shot. Just total, uninterrupted enjoyment of the wedding, live and happening right there in front of their eyes.
The wedding venue is booked and you are compiling a long list of “to-do’s” before the imperative “I-do’s.” One of the highlights must surely be choosing a wedding cake and you are in luck, as Washington D.C. has an array of bakeries armed to the hilt with buttercream and fondant - ready and waiting to create custom cupcakes, mouth-watering macaroon towers and wow factor wedding cakes.
