PHILADELPHIA, PA, October 24, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- A new article from The Huffington Post offers advice to brides- and grooms-to-be on creating the best wedding experience possible for friends and family members. Industry pros deliver new ideas and tips on myriad topics, from what type of cocktails to serve to how to address attire requirements and dress codes with guests. Event planner and DJ Christopher Ryan Porter
offers his own thoughts on this increasingly trendsetting industry.
The article's author notes that the advice provided is based on information collected at six weddings over a span of three months during this past summer. Ultimately, pros and cons are outlined as basic wedding rituals are broken down, and common mistakes made by brides and grooms are identified. Considering this information, Christopher Ryan Porter, confers with the article's suggestions.
A new trend seen at many modern weddings is the idea of signature wedding drink as many couples like to create a cocktail for their special day. The drink may represent a sunset on a beach where the proposal happened, or perhaps it signifies the couple's love of a certain hobby. While signature cocktails are beautiful, industry pros suggests keeping drinks simple at the reception in order to allow the bar line to move quickly. Event planner and DJ, Christopher Ryan Porter, states this keeps glasses filled and guests satisfied.
The article also discusses the subject of dress code. For many people, ensuring that they are properly dressed is an important part of feeling comfortable when arriving at a wedding. As the author explains, "'Dress to impress,' 'Festive attire,' and 'Business casual' are not acceptable words to put on a wedding invitation. They are befuddling words...What do you actually want people to wear? Great. Now say that."
Christopher Ryan Porter, owner of Perfect Soundtrack Entertainment, agrees with this statement. "Besides the fear of not knowing anyone, partygoers often express concern about showing up to an event either over or underdressed. If you have specific dress code requirements, specify them on the invitation using terminology everyone can understand."
Moreover, industry leaders suggest that wedding meals should appeal to a wide range of people. According to the author's article, "A wedding is not the time to sanctimoniously impose your dietary restrictions on friends and family."
Christopher Ryan Porter agrees with this advice, he notes, "It's perfectly acceptable to offer vegetarian cuisine, however this should not be the only meal choice. A wedding meal should provide plenty of options for the diverse palates of guests attending the celebration."
Also advised is the need to account for weather if the ceremony or reception will take place outside. Small details, such as putting down floor covering in case rain makes the ground muddy, helps preserve attendees' comfort at the event. This ensures that guests ultimately enjoy the celebration.
