All-White Wedding Inspiration

Traditional, sophisticated and timeless, an all-white wedding palette is eternally fresh. Shades of ivory, eggshell, pearl and pure white play well with one another, adding luxurious layering to your decor. Opting to bring in embellishment or detailing with metal or mirrored accents multiple the crispness of the white without diminishing the chic layered effect.

Yummy Midnight Snack Ideas | PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com

It’s about 11:15 pm, and the reception is kicking into high gear … what’s will delight your guests right now? Food! A midnight snack is just what your guests need to keep going through the night and a great way to inject some personality and fun into the second half of the evening.

Comfort foods, finger foods and family recipes are great go-tos and sweet or savory work. Some couples opt for hand-passed items for elegance, while yet others go for a bar option with customization galore. Classic appetizers, sweet treats and fast food are also lovely ways to surprise your guests and keep them celebrating until the wee hours.
