Holiday Engagement? Tips for Wedding Planning in Syracuse

Considerations for wedding planning in Syracuse Congratulations! Planning your wedding can be a dream of many brides to be. But with the planning, comes many decisions. Choosing the ideal wedding venue will be one of the most important (right up there with the dress). The Wedding Planners at our historic hotel have some helpful tips to consider: Space for all of your guests – Make sure the event space is roomy enough to accommodate the number of people on your guest list. The space may look enormous when it’s empty, but wedding essentials — tables, chairs, a buffet, a bar, the band or DJ setup, the dance floor — can take up a lot of space. Not to mention your guests will need some elbow room. The best way to assess the size of a site? Ask to take a peek of the space when another wedding (with an equivalent guest list size) is all set up. A storied venue – What will your guests see when they pull up to your wedding? Exceptional locations with a unique history are always a plus. Look to the decor or architectural details of your venue as well! The Cuisine – Special dietary needs? Cultural dishes desired? Make sure that you are able to create a menu plan that will suit all of your tastes. Overnight Accommodations – Having access to overnight accommodations for out of town guests as well as space for your bridal party to get into their special occasion finery is a must. Professional Coordination – Does the venue offer Wedding Planning assistance? You may think you have all...

Essential Cold Weather Wedding Tips

Consider our cold weather wedding tips when planning your special day in Syracuse There is nothing quite like the winter in Syracuse! If you are planning a wedding in Salt City over the winter months, it’s important to consider some cold weather wedding tips to keep everyone happy and toasty despite frigid temperatures. There can be many benefits to having a wedding in winter, such as incorporating the festive mood of the holiday season. It’s entirely appropriate to combine seasonal décor with the wedding. Even if the event is after the New Year, you can maintain some winter-themed centerpieces and decorations with snowflakes, winter trees covered in sparkling lights and cool winter colors. If the wedding is taking place in the coldest of months, you might even consider the opposite approach and create a beach or Hawaiian theme complete with palm tree decorations and tropical drinks. 3 Cold Weather Wedding Tips to consider 1. Dress Appropriately You don’t want to spend your big day shivering! If you’ll be getting married with chilly temperatures outside, you can be elegant and warm, stylish and cozy…and so can your wedding party. Consider closed-toe shoes, shawls, fur stoles, or matching formal coats for the bride and bridesmaids. Formal dresses with sleeves are also an option. The groom and groomsmen can opt for dark formal coats, matching scarves, and dressy gloves to keep the chill away. 2. Run with a Cozy Theme Who doesn’t love getting cozy on a cold day? In the same tone, your guests will appreciate cozy touches for your wedding and reception. Glowing and flickering candles give a warm ambiance,...
