Wedding Day Staff

Tips on Managing Wedding Day Staff

 

Your wedding day staff should be there to cater to you, not the other way around, but it’s perfectly acceptable to treat the staff to meals and beverages. Still, there are plenty of things you don’t need to do, and things you definitely shouldn’t do, so it may help to establish boundaries. Here are a few suggestions to keep things running smoothly.

 

Allow brief, staggered breaks.

Your staff members should be able to work the few hours it takes to hold a reception without multiple smoke breaks and private phone calls to their significant others, so you shouldn’t allow unnecessarily long breaks if you’ve paid your staff to work for that time. That being said, you aren’t running a sweatshop, so don’t be inhumane and deprive staff of bathroom breaks or time needed to replenish thirst. Instead, allow staggered, short break times during your reception so that service will not be neglected and staff will not be exhausted.

 

Offer light meals.

You don’t have to go overboard with a Kobe steak dinner per employee, but it’s appropriate to offer light meals or snacks for your employees, especially if your reception is held around dinnertime. Speak to your catering company about meal plans for your employees: you could offer simple variations of the meals you supply for your guests at a reduced cost. Or, simply order a few extra plates of hors d’oeuvres! Fed employees are happy employees.

 

Maintain a strict no-alcohol policy.

You can provide staff members with beverages and give them breaks to consume non-alcoholic drinks, but your servers should not be enjoying your open bar. To ensure that your staff provides the best service possible, and for your own safety and security with legal liabilities, do not supply your staff with alcoholic beverages or allow them to consume alcohol during their breaks. Letting your staff booze on the job is inappropriate on multiple levels. If your catering company belongs to a service association, they should abide by a strict code of conduct, so make sure the staff members follow that code.

Perfect Wedding Lingerie

Helping you get from wedding woes to wedding bliss one issue at a time!

Much like shopping for your wedding attire, shopping for your wedding lingerie is one of the most fun aspects of planning your wedding.

Consider buying separate sets of lingerie for your wedding gown, your reception dress and your wedding night.
For your wedding gown, you may need extra support from your lingerie. For your reception dress, you may want something more seamless. For your wedding night, the focus may be solely on the lingerie itself. So with all of that in mind, consider buying two or three different sets of lingerie. While you’re at it, don’t forget about your honeymoon!

Match your wedding day lingerie to your gown.
However playful, colorful lingerie might show through under your white gown, so choose something that won’t distract your guests or look tacky.

Have every piece properly fitted and, if need be, properly tailored.
Even the finest intimates can look frumpy if they don’t fit your body correctly. Be sure to have your measurements taken and have every piece of lingerie properly fitted and tailored to your body.

Have your wedding gown and reception dress fitted over your lingerie.
Bring your wedding lingerie to your dress fittings to make sure your wedding gown and your reception dress lay nicely over your delicates. Your lingerie should enhance the shape of your body, but if it proves to be too bulky under clothes, you’ll want to know ahead of time so that you can look for lingerie that doesn’t bulge out of your gowns.

Try everything on again at least one week before your wedding.
You’ll want to make sure that everything still fits perfectly for the big day, so be sure to try on your lingerie and your gown at least one week before your wedding in case any last-minute alterations need to be made.
