Love is in the Air Bridal Faire

We had a beautiful day to celebrate everything Wedding and Quinceanera. With 31 Vendors and great location of the Spring Valley Lake Country Club, this years show was wonderful. With two large rooms, this years vendors displayed everything from food to videography. While DJs keep the place dancing; the cake and food vendors kept the crowd happy with samples. Love is in the Air Bridal how was hosted by HD Weddings and Events, so many of its members were there to represent their trades, but this year several new companies showed their workmanship.

  • Bride and Groom must apply together
  • License is good for 90 days

The Groom…it’s his Wedding too!

The Groom SmilingJust before the wedding ceremony starts, the Minister and Groom enter from the side entry of a church or venue and proceed to the Altar.  No Music.  No Fanfare.  Very Boring.

Isn’t this his special day too?  Doesn’t he deserve any attention?  Aren’t the guests his family and friends too?  After all, doesn’t he look handsome in that tuxedo and it is because he asked his beautiful bride to marry him that there is a wedding to begin with!

Yes…he is important so it’s about time we focus on him.  Let’s begin with his Processional.  He should enter walking down the aisle to his own music.  He too, will enjoy the smiles, tears and well wishes of those he passes while making his grand entrance.  Imagine your guest’s delight as he strolls in to his own fun music like…”Another One Bites the Dust”…”U Can’t touch This”…or the “Mission Impossible Theme!”  He should pick a song that reflects his style and personality.

Once he’s at the Altar, he turns and faces his guests.  When  Best Man and Groomsmen split off from the Bridesmaids during their Procession, they walk up to him and give him a “Bro Hug” or clasp his hand and “Congratulate” him before proceeding to their places at the Altar.

What a great photo opp!  Remember, your guests probably won’t remember what they hear, but they will remember what they see!  Weddings should be visual and dramatic.
