Three Weddings, Three Settings, One Location

On Friday I coordinated my third wedding this season at our outdoor Shakespeare Theater. All three were in different locations within the theater grounds and all were very different. The first, held on Memorial week-end in May, was held in a grassy area behind the amphitheater. The reception was held on the patio under a tent and inside the multi-purpose building.
The second wedding occurred on a very hot 7-7-07 on the amphitheater stage in the bright sun. The play Arsenic and Old Lace opened that day, so we had to work around the sets. The reception was held at the Basque Center out of the heat.
On Friday the most recent ceremony occurred at one end of the property in a clearing overlooking a pond. It was a small morning ceremony with about 30 guests. After the ceremony we went to a private club for lunch on their patio. In the evening, about 300 guests joined us at the bride's parent's farm for a reception.

Create a Blog for Your Special Event

You are probably familiar with wedding web sites and other special event web sites. The latest trend is creating a blog for your event instead of or in addition to a web site. A blog will allow you to share the planning details for your family reunion, wedding, or other event and also share photos of everything from the location to the gown.

By posting regular updates, a blog allows the opportunity to write about the details of the event as they occur. By doing so, friends and family both near and far away can share the journey with you, increasing their excitement and their feeling of involvement.

Creating a blog is easy. If you can write a letter, you can update a blog. Creating a blog is also free, unlike the cost of many web sites. Give it a try for your next event. You may decide to make it a permanet part of your family's communication.

A New and Unique Weather Web Site

If you are planning an outdoor event you will want to visit http://www.bridalweather.com/. This unique site, created by a professional meteorologist, can predict the weather for your event months into the future. The weather for a number of U.S. cities is available and more are being added all the time. The predictions are based on historical data.
Though the name of the site implies it is directed to weddings, the information can be used for any outdoor event, including family reunions, picnics, festivals, and more. If family and friends will be traveling to your special event, you can find travel weather information as well. Brides and grooms can also add customized weather information to their web sites as a unique touch.
