We spoke with Range Master Bill Toy about The Outpost Armory. What a facility!! Looking for something unique for your bachelor or bachelorette party? Want to surprise your sweetie with a totally unique date night? The Outpost Armory is sure to be a memorable experience!
ooted in tradition. However, these days there are no hard and fast rules. You do not have to separate your wedding party into men and women. If you’d rather mix it up and have a bridesman or a groomswoman then go for it!! It doesn’t matter how your most important people identify. Having men and women on either side of the aisle is a sweet way to include those you love.
Long gone are the days when bridesmaids had to be just that: maids. Today, having a best guy friend, brother, or even a business partner standing by your side at the altar is becoming more common. After all, if they’re your support system and close confidant, gender doesn’t matter.
You’ve been asked to play a huge role in your best friend’s wedding…being her maid of honor! However, this job comes with many important tasks…one of the most important being the the maid of honor speech. While this is a moment to celebrate your friendship, the idea of getting up in front of a crowd can be unnerving if you aren’t used to getting up in front of a crowd, giving a speech, but we can help!
While the two of you are the most important people at the wedding, half the fun is being able to plan and celebrate your wedding day with your nearest and dearest friends by your side as bridesmaids and groomsmen. While you might think its as simple as just grabbing your friends, assigning them a bridal title, and calling it a day, there are a few other things you’ll want to consider before you make the final selections on your wedding party people.
Once you’ve decided who you will be asking to be in your wedding party, you then have to narrow down your options for maid of honor. But how do you choose amongst all your close friends and family? If you have more than one person in mind who fits all of your Maid of Honor needs, you may find yourself wondering if it’s okay to double up. The answer is: Yes!
items on your wedding day checklist are perfect. Everything from the flowers to the color of the napkins. But then, unexpectedly, disaster strikes! Whether the maid of honor’s dress suddenly doesn’t fit right. Or that your elaborate up-do is unraveling fast. Every wedding needs a wedding day emergency kit to assist the bridal party in handling the unexpected with ease. The Weddings & Events by Raina team always has a suitcase of survival items for any and all wedding day disasters.
st the happy couple and their families who are paying the price for the big day. There are so many satellite events such as the engagement party, bridal shower, bachelor and bachelorette parties. There are also travel expenses, attire, hair and makeup, and the gifts that go with each of these events. In the end, it can unfairly target friends and loved ones time and wallets. It certainly makes it understandable that someone might consider turning down the option to be a bridesmaid. However, how does one go about doing that without risking the loss of a relationship with a close friend?
Being by your friend’s side through all the highs and lows of the wedding planning process is something every good friend wants to say yes to. Calming her on the big day. Seeing the sweet but nervous smiles throughout the ceremony. Crying along with her as she exchanges vows with her soon to be spouse. We all want to support those closest to us and to be there when they need us most. But being able to afford bridesmaid these days…. It does not come cheap. In fact, it’s getting remarkably expensive. On average, it costs approximately $3K. We have found that many ladies just can’t afford it without forgoing paying rent or buying groceries.
The first look is a magical intimate moment, full of emotion. It is a lovely alternative for the happy couple to get the most out of their wedding photo coverage with beautiful photos and, likely, the only moment alone they will have a chance to enjoy together. Trust us, alone time is rare thing during the wedding day.
