Candle suggestion: If you are planning to line lite candles on the aisle of the ceremony please think twice. This can be very dangerous. Many guests knock over the containers when they come in. The same is true if you place the candle on a mirror. Women with high heals often step on them and break the mirror. A safer way is to buy faux candles. Today they look real and there is no danger of fire or knocking the container over.
Looking for a reception site for your party or wedding. Here are some suggestions you might want to ask.
See if they have an elevator for guests that cannot use the stairs.
Ask if you have to pay for the count (number of people coming) you give them before the occasion or the actual number that are there on the day of the wedding.
If you are having a cocktail hour first ask if it is just passed food or
will they have stations where your guests may go up and take what they wish.
Make sure they supply some tables and chairs during the cocktail hour.
See if they have an outdoor space to add a tent just in case you need one.

Many couples had to postpone their weddings until next year. Others feel that they have waited long enough for their special day. Since New Jersey and many other states are reopening, many couples are opting for micro weddings. This type of wedding may take place in your backyard or now some venues have moved their reception halls to the outside grounds. Most places will also have a space to have the ceremony. You will not be able to have as many people, but it will be your special day. Another idea is to have a mini ceremony. Since many churches have reopened, why not have your ceremony on the day you planned your wedding and have your reception next year. In this case you will be able to wear your wedding gown twice.
Helpful Hints Planning your wedding.
Many couples are still getting engaged. Here are some helpful hints to think about. Enjoy your engagement. Consider not rushing to decide on a date just yet. Try waiting until the new year to see what is going with the virus. If all goes well and they find a vaccine or some other medicines to cure the virus then start making your plans. 2021 will be a busy year for most venues and other vendors because most couples have postponed their weddings until 2021.

Use a natural venue. Many couples choose wedding venues that require immense amounts of decorations, but a venue with organic scenery or a beautiful view can help alleviate the stress. Consider having the ceremony near a garden or beach with enough natural surroundings to keep guests in awe.
Make the cake a centerpiece. Wedding cakes are almost guaranteed to be filled with flavor, but they can also serve as a decorative centerpiece for the reception. Choosing a cake topped with flowers, highlighting bright colors and placing it in a prominent spot at the reception can grab guests’ attention while also keeping them eager for a bite.
Choose table accessories that pop. Leave guests in amazement as they make their way to their seats for the reception with beautifully decorated tables. Table accessories can be anything ranging from patterned table runners to flowers in full-bloom placed in simple, elegant vases. If you are not having a formal sit-down reception, try using paper lanterns or hanging flowers from the ceiling to create an eye-catching atmosphere to remember.
Add classic lighting. At times, finding the right lighting to match the mood of a wedding venue can be tricky. In this case, less may actually be more. Try opting for a classic candlelit ceremony or reception to create a more romantic setting. This can save both money and countless hours spent attempting to configure elaborate light fixtures, and also provide a timeless feel.
Place engagement photos around the venue. With any wedding, you want the day to feel personal and intimate for the couple and guests alike. Consider decorating the venue with engagement photos of the soon-to-be spouses as they popped the question. This can allow the newlyweds to reminisce while guests view those cherished moments and revel in the occasion.
