Wedding Insurance – Caterers

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Wedding insurance can insure you against loss or cancellation for the important parts of your big day, including the caterers for your celebratory meal. The wedding dinner is an important part of your wedding day, and you should therefore have good insurance that ensures your guests do not go hungry.

When deciding which wedding insurance plan to take out, it’s worth checking that even cheap insurance covers caterers in their policy. Weddings traditionally include a feast of special food for all the guests and quality wedding insurance is the best way to ensure that you are financially protected in case your caterer cannot supply the food on the big day.

Wedding insurance will usually insure you against your suppliers going bankrupt or if they are unable to provide the service. You may also receive compensation for costs incurred with the caterer if you have to cancel your wedding. This means that if for whatever reason your caterers cannot or do not provide the food for your wedding day, you should be financially protected by your insurance.

Choosing the right wedding insurance plan is just as important as choosing a caterer who can supply food in the style that best suits your wedding. Some caterers may specialise in particular formal dining, including all the trimmings of silver service and multiple, complex courses. Other caterers may offer buffet style food with abundant dishes of colourful food that’s easy to dish out informally.

One style of dining you may not have considered is serving your wedding feast ‘family style’. This means that – much like a family meal – dishes are placed on each table, and guests help themselves to the food. The benefits of this style of service are that it avoids the formality of silver service, whilst also preventing the hungry scrum of a buffet line up. Your guests will feel at home serving themselves – and it cuts down on costs of serving staff too!

The caterer would need to supply food that suits family style dining; a large roast of meat or full fish, for example, with a selection of fresh vegetables. A large lasagne or shepherds pie would also work, and would suit this innovative, familiar wedding feast.

Whatever style of catered wedding food you opt for, your wedding insurance plan should protect you financially if the supplier does not meet their contractual agreement. With good insurance, you should therefore always have food fit for a bride and groom.

Benefits of a Wedding Website

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Creating a wedding website or wedsite is both fun and very useful for your wedding. For couples who haven’t yet made their own wedding website we would like to review some of the major reasons to consider in making one.
Share information with your guest: A wedding website or wedsite is a very useful and efficient way of sharing all wedding information with your guests. You can make your wedsite a central source of information by adding the relevant details of your wedding. Allowing your guests to easily find all the relevant information in one central location makes things easier for everyone.

Tell your guests about you: Even though some of your guests will know both the bride and the groom, several may only know one or the other. A wedding website allows you to share a bit about yourselves including how you met, what the courting phase was like, and much more. Give the groom some props by sharing the story of how he proposed. Pictures speak a thousand words… so use the power of images to tell your guests the story of your relationship.

Express your uniqueness: Every couple is unique and special and all aspect of your wedding ceremony should reflect your particular style and taste as a couple. Wedding websites or wedsites should be one of the first aspects of your wedding seen by your guests. When they visit your site, they should immediately get a sense of your personality as a couple and your wedding style through the layout, color, imagery, music, etc. Customizing your site to your taste and adding your own personal elements will allow your guests to connect with who you are together.

Communicate effortlessly with your bridal party: Oftentimes, the bridesmaids and groomsmen may live in different cities, towns, or even countries from you and from each other. Your wedding websites will enable you to privately exchange information with your bridal party – share ideas, thoughts, planning details, etc.

Receive feedback from your guests: Like most events, it is critical to make sure your guests have a wonderful experience and feel like active participants and not passive bystanders. The Guestbook page on your website is designed to allow your guests share their excitement about your wedding before and after the big day! Reading through their wishes and messages will not only motivate your during the planning process, but it will bring a lot of smiles and satisfaction for years to come.

Preserve the memories: After the event is concluded, you can add unlimited photos from your special day. This gives you a controlled venue to share all your professional wedding pictures with your guests. In the future, you can look back at your website and remember how magical your wedding was and have all the details, planning info, and photos available to see.

Turn it into a family website: The conclusion of your wedding should not be the end of your wedsite. You can easily convert it to a family website to capture all the future milestones in your family, such as wedding anniversaries, birth of a baby, birthdays, etc. Upload and share pictures and movies of these special events to capture the growth of your family over the course of time.
