Did you know that you would have to go all the way back to the ancient Babylonians to find the original meaning to the familiar expression “tie the knot”? Well, that was the time when tying the bride and groom together by threads of their clothing symbolized being officially married. As is the case with idiomatic expressions, the origins are forgotten, yet the meaning is understood, if only within specific languages or cultures.
When it comes to planning a wedding reception and ceremony, a lot of couple decide to have them at separate locations. But that is not only lame, but it is foolish. Why? Well, why in the world would you want to require your guests to show up at one place, then get into their personal vehicles and drive several miles to another location just to dance and eat? That being said, the best place to have a wedding reception is the same place you get married.
Well, not the same exact spot where the marriage ceremony take place, but in the same venue. You see, the best places to have a wedding and reception are laid out separately. This way, the guests can leave the ceremony area, and walk in a couple minutes or seconds to the place of the reception. What could possibly be a more perfect wedding venue than that?
Thus, while you are having all of your expensive wedding ceremony photos taken with your family and wedding party, your guests could be milling around and getting lit up at the father of the bride’s expense. How does that sound for revenge on those intolerable in-laws? Furthermore, when weddings and receptions take place in the same venue, planning a reception will be far easier and much more manageable.
As more and more couples scour the earth and internet for unique reception ideas, it is easy to get caught up in all of the different places, and arranging how and when this or that will happen. Well, forget all of that, because it has nothing to do with how to plan the perfect wedding. The only thing couples need to know about how to plan the perfect wedding is that the simplest way is the most enjoyable way for all. Helpful links.
