Your daughter might like to hear you give her some advice and to hear you say how happy and proud you are of her. However giving a wedding toast should not be a spur of the moment. It should be something planned with care. You need to do your research and if you wish to use and interesting quotes then you should write them down or even memorize them.

Tell him what a good man he is and what a loyal and loving person. Tell the guests that you couldn’t hope for a better man for your daughter. Even if your daughter and your son in law know all of these things this is the perfect time to remind them of that. You also have to let everyone at the reception know that you are a proud mother for raising such a good daughter. You can also use a few jokes in your toast if you want to make it a little more comical.

Remember that you should also be a good entertainer. Even if you are not good at telling jokes at least try to be funny while giving the toast.

There are only few shapes and sizes available for the wedding reception tables, and while the round ones are quite popular, probably in many cultures having a rectangular and long table at the wedding is more common, and even considered traditional. Depending on the shape and on the size of the table, one will decorate it differently.  Not forgetting the theme and the location of the wedding reception, one will find it more easy to decorate the used tables.

The centerpiece shouldn't be missing, no matter what, after all with no centerpiece, one can't really say the table is decorated. At a long table, the guests can be seated face to face, and this gives a better possibility for socializing with each-other. But for this to happen, the right sized centerpieces need to be purchased.

The centerpieces need to be really low, like in the image above, or really tall. We prefer the low table centerpieces for a wedding reception, because the really tall ones make the table look crowded.

If you suspect that the guests might be allergic to real flowers, it will be nice to order some fake flower, or to replace them with handmade centerpieces – stones, crystals, seashells. Of course, this replacement needs to fit with the theme of the wedding as well, if you've chosen any.

The table cloth can be a single color, or it can have a lace table cloth of another color to cover it, for a chic wedding reception party. The favors you plan n using – if any – can also be part of the table's decor. 

The long tables at the reception of a wedding allows the use of less centerpiece, which can be place ever one or 2 guests seats. This arrangement will look cleaner and more elegant. If using scented flowers, less centerpieces will lower the chances for an allergy to spread through the guests.

You will see that it is not that hard to find a good one, but you must be looking for something specific. For instance, try to find a wedding planner which will allow you to write everything down. An Excel sheet format would be great, as they are easy to fill in and it is easier to keep tracks of things. Plus, even though there are plenty classical wedding planners, which allow you to carry them around with you at all times, these online planners can also be with you wherever you go, as long as you have a laptop.

As long as you keep an eye on things, it should not be too hard to plan the wedding. A good online planner usually has fields which allow you to write down everything about the wedding – the budget, the number of guests, useful info about wedding vendors and other such details, which are so important for the event. If you cannot find anything useful online, there are some other options you have, but the most suitable, from my point of view, is making your own wedding planner, because it is not so hard and it does not require too much time for you to make it.

Come Up with Your Own Wedding Planner

Making your own wedding planner is not as bad as it may sound. It is quite easy, once you get to put a little order in your thoughts and once you get the grip of things. First of all, the first thing you need to do is to plan your budget. Depending on the type of money you have for the wedding, make sure you split it so as to be able to get everything done right. You will need money for almost all the things and that is why you should make a good budget plan and to stick to it, otherwise you may spend more and that is not advisable, especially when you do not have too much money, in the first place.

Then, after you have set the budget limits, it is high time you put on paper or on your computer a series of things you will have to do. Include there things such as finding the right wedding gown, the rings, the invitations, getting the cake, the flowers, the caterers, the wedding venue, the music and other such things. Make sure you are not tired when you make the list, so as to be able to think straight about all the things you are going to do for the wedding.

In addition, an online wedding planner which comes already filled in will also allow you learn more things about what you have to do so as to be able to have the type of wedding you have always wanted ever since you were little.

The truth is that many of the old trends that we used to ignore until recently are back. Contemporary brides are very lucky because they have the privilege of choosing from a myriad of jewelries: classic, ancient, vintage, traditional, modern or even fashion-forward.

You are free to follow your own style and go for a personalized bridal look. The days when the bride could wear only pears are final behind us. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t beautify your wedding look with pearls and obtain a fabulous appearance! We are big fans of pearls and other types of jewelries of the past. Pearls are timelessly romantic and elegant. They will always be in vogue. But this year’s weddings show us many other styles to approach.

We’ve noticed that color plays a major role in the life of a 2012 bride. Colored gemstones are in trend today. You can spend less on a semi-precious gem wedding ring or jewelry set than on a wedding ring. Besides this, you will definitely look more eye-catchy and impressive in a sparkling color. But the color trend of the year is coral! Look for coral bracelets, rings and necklaces to fit the theme of your wedding. Colored diamonds are also in this year, as well as big dramatic crystals.

The mother of the bride dress subject is very popular and actual. Many brides are interested in learning more about this type of wear and how they can make the best selection for their moms. In most situations the mother is helped by her daughter to pick the most adequate outfit for the wedding. If you are a clever mom, you will allow your daughter to give you her precious tips and suggestions. And although you think you are more experienced in this field and you know them all, you will see that your daughter knows better what you should wear.

After all it’s her wedding and not yours. This only means that you must follow her advice and never argue with her on the things she wants. Don’t get in her way but collaborate for the perfect results. You can discuss with her about your own preferences and see what she has to say. It’s important to communicate and reach the best compromise between your style and her wedding vision. The bride is responsible with choosing the outfits for the bridal party, starting with the maid of honor and the bridesmaids and ending up with the flower girls and mothers.

However, there are brides who simply decide to let their girls and moms handle this situation on their own. If you trust your mother and believe in her taste and style, allow her to purchase the dress for your wedding alone, without your help. You can at most offer her a few indications regarding the color, length or design she should look for. This way you can be sure that there won’t be any unpleasant surprised from her part! Although the bride’s mother doesn’t play the role of the bridesmaids, she needs to be assorted with the girls’ outfits.

Modern weddings are all about matching the color and the styles. These events are based on elegance, coherence and unity. It’s vital for a bride to find the right theme for the ceremony and party and then look for the most adequate items and outfits to fit. She must build the entire event on the theme and style she picked. Modern moms are free to wear shorter gowns, like those based on knee lengths.

These models look amazing in sleek fabrics and luscious colors. If you want to be a fashionable mom, choose a knee length strapless frock covered with a ruffled neckline bolero. The gown can feature a metallic color or a jewel tone. Try silver, platinum, emerald green or electric blue for instance. Don’t be afraid to wear orange, coral or violet. These colors are also trendy and kind of age-appropriate for modern mothers and cheerful fun weddings.
