New Years Eve Weddings

Think of the glamour, the glitter and the sparkle!  Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have or attend a New Years Eve Wedding?   Would your friends and family love that you gave them something interesting and fun to do on New Years?  Or would they be resent you for “choosing” for them?  

Morganley Weddings & Events, think that a New Years Eve Wedding would be a perfect way to start your new life together, after all, it’s a New Year! 

So where to start….

First, we suggest that you send out Save The Date cards at least 6 months before December 31.  This will give people enough time to mark it on their calendars and plan for your wedding!  This is also the first impression you will make of your wedding, make it match the entire theme of your New Years Eve Wedding.  Your invitations will match this and so will everything at your wedding.   For the sake of this blog, we’ve sourced black, gold and pops of silver to be the theme colours.

I LOVE this invite!  The font is my favourite, but it’s fun, personal and you can tell from this Save The Date how much fun the couple is and gives you a feel of how fun their wedding might be.

The actual invitation would be sent out 2 months before the wedding and have the same feeling, colours and font. 

As for the decor at the venue, why not have it dripping in sequins, crystals and gold?  Centerpieces could be old clocks, with lots of bling and candles to give it a romantic feel.   Gold chiavaris and gold charger plates would also help to create this look.

As the bride, you could get married in a traditional white wedding gown, but then change into a stunning, sparkly party dress, like this one from BCBGMAXAZRIA.

Guests could be welcomed to the reception with a guest book time capsule.  Have guests write on 3×4 inch paper that will be placed into an apothecary jar for reading on the couples’ one year anniversary.    New Years Eve favours such as hats, gold beads, tiaras and noise makers can be passed around just before midnight.   Of course, champagne will also be served at this time. 

Fireworks or mini sparklers would be a perfect ending to this night.  Sparklers can be handed out to guests as they head outside for the Newlywed’s Departure!

What about displaying this at your wedding? 

Have a safe and Happy New Year!

Real Wedding Wednesday – Maureen & Davindra

Maureen and Davindra (Davy) got married on September 3 & 4, 2011.  Morganley Weddings & Events was hired for Month of Management for this special two day Hindu Ceremony & Christian Ceremony and Reception! 

The Hindu ceremony colours were a gorgeous red and gold!

Maureen and Davy put so much work into this wedding!  They designed the centerpieces for both days, the cake and even had a customized cake topper with their faces inside glass! 

All celebrations took place at Elite Banquet Hall in West Toronto.  The staff at this hall were incredible!  Nothing was overlooked and their cooperation was amazing!  Nino and his team did a great job!

Saturday September 3rd, 2011 was the Hindu Ceremony.  This was my first Hindu Ceremony and I was excited to see how it flowed.   Maureen looked absolutely stunning dressed head to toe in traditional attire and jewelry.  Davy was greeted outside by Maureen’s female family relatives and the Tassa Group!    The ceremony was underway while family and friends enjoyed refreshements and light hors d’oeurves.

The next day was the Christian ceremony.  The room had been completely transformed into a white ceremony room with blue accents!  Designs by Sherville created the stunning alter backdrop for the ceremony and later on, the reception backdrop.

After the ceremony, the bridal party went for photos and Elite Banquet Hall and Morganley Weddings & Events flipped the room to set it for the dinner and dance reception. 

The room sparkled with crystals!! 

The room was revealed to Maureen and Davy who absolutely loved it!  It was everything they imagined and planned for their wedding!  The newly married couple enjoyed their reception and danced the night away!

Congratulations Maureen & Davy and thanks for having Morganley be a part of your wedding weekend!

Real Wedding Wednesday – Camille & Ryan

Camille and Ryan were married in September 2009.  I actually met Camille in a scrapbooking aisle at Walmart!   She was looking for a cardstock to match a ribbon, so that she could make her own invitations.   We got to talking and in a week or so, I met with her fiancé Ryan (who, by coincidence, I went to elementary and highschool with him and his brother). 

Camille & Ryan

Camille was a big DIY bride!  Everything needed to be and was perfect!  She made her on invitations, cardbox and designed her own wedding cake to be made by someone else.

They got married at a church in Ajax followed by a reception at Le Parc Conference and Banquet Center.  Their colours were pink, pink & more pink!

Camille and Ryan’s reception was DJ’ed by Ryan’s cousin DJ Navi – he had the entire dance floor packed the entire night! 

I’ll never forget when Camille danced with her dad to “My Girl” by the Temptations!  This is my favourite father/daughter dance song and everytime I hear this song, I still think of Camille dancing with her dad!  (It also reminds me of the classic movie, Father of the Bride, father/daughter scene!)

Real Wedding Wednesday – Sandra & Nick

Happy Real Wedding Wednesday!

Today’s featured wedding is Sandra and Nick.   Sandra and Nick hired Morganley for Month of Management services.  I first met Sandra when she was a bridesmaid in Karena & Stan’s wedding. 

Sandra is probably the most organized bride I’ve ever had!  She knew everything she wanted and made it happen and as a result their wedding was gorgeous!

Upon signing with Morganley, Sandra and Nick were told that the week prior to their wedding, their coordinator would be away at a conference with limited phone and email communication.  They were strangely calm about this!  That’s how cool this couple is!  We made sure that all details were completed before the conference.  Doing so made sure that Sandra and Nick had the down time to relax and not think about anything wedding related the week before!

During the time that their coordinator was at the conference, during email communication Sandra had told the coordinator – stop emailing me, go enjoy the beach, everything’s fine!

Sandra and Nick were married at a Catholic Church in Scarborough, ON.  This couple was so thankful and relieved for Morganley to be apart of their day that:

  • the groom thanked me when I sent him down the aisle
  • the groomsmen thanked me when I sent them down the aisle
  • the bridesmaids thanked me when I sent them down the aisle
  • the bride and her parents thanked me, followed by a huge hug from the bride
  • the bride and groom thanked me while coming up the aisle after being married
  • the bride and groom & bridal party along with family members thanked me non-stop throughout the entire wedding day

THAT is what makes me so happy to be a part of someone’s wedding day!  To get something so simple as a thank you, makes you know as a wedding coordinator you’ve done an amazing job at making their day special!

After the ceremony, the bridal party and family were off to Scarborough Golf & Country Club for photos with the amazingly talented and one of my favourite photographers: Leon Chai.

Cocktails and Reception took place Riviera Parque Banquet Convention Centre.  The staff here was so helpful, accommodating and organized!  I even got to sit down with the banquet manager at the end of the night for a little chat.  (How often does a wedding coordinator & banquet manager have time to do that??)  The room was so beautifully and simply decorated by Luxel Decor.  The centerpieces were designed by the bride and groom and created by Morganley’s Wedding Coordinators that day.  The bride and groom were speechless when they walked into the hall for the reveal!  It really was stunning!

The dinner was delicious, the bridal party put together some amazing speeches and the party rocked on into the wee hours of the night by Prodigy Entertainment.

Thank you to Morganley’s assistants, Megan, Janis & Diane and all of the fabulous vendors Sandra and Nick put together to create this perfect day.

Thank you, Sandra and Nick!

Morganley Weddings & Events @ Vaughan Welcome Wagon

On October 18, Morganley participated in Vaughan’s Welcome Wagon Bridal Showcase at Borgata Event Venue

This was Morganley’s very first bridal show, so I was very excited!   I designed my own table using linen I owned and rented from Chairman Mills, purple Christmas decor from last year and some new items I purchased!    Purple and bling were everywhere!

Lataysha (WPIC intern) was helping me for the night!  She was fantastic!

Although many couples who came to our table thought we were decorators (I guess we did a great job), we had a lot of interest in Wedding Planning/Coordination services.  We are starting to fill up for the 2012 season!

The table was adorned with a purple satin linen, with ice chivari chairs.  I had purchased silver/chrome charger plates and created round menu cards that would fit inside the charger.  There was purple vases and candle holders mixed with some bling!  Portfolios sat out on the table for couples to look at. 

Overall it was a great night.  We learned a lot, met some great people and can’t wait to do another show!

Thanks to Lataysha for all of her help!
