The Do’s and Don’ts of Your Bach Party

The Do’s and Don’ts of Your Bach Party


Knowing the certain things you can do and things you should not do for planning your bachelorette party is crucial to having a successful event. You don’t want to get caught up in any sticky situations that would ruin your wedding day.  We have a couple of do’s and don’ts that you may want to consider.

Do Plan Your Party

Do plan out your bachelorette party. Planning is key when it comes to your bachelor or bachelorette party. If you don’t plan, chances are a reservation may fall through. So, plan hotel reservations, airlines tickets if needed, and activity reservations. Finally having every detail for the guest joining you for your bachelor or bachelorette party makes it easier on your and your guest.

Don’t Have the Party Too Close to the Wedding Date

Don’t have the party the night before. When having your bachelor or bachelorette party too close to the wedding date, it can lead to several different outcomes. If you go to the beach, you wouldn’t want to have your wedding day within the next 3 days because you may get sunburnt. Next, if you celebrate by enjoying intoxicating spirits, then scheduling your wedding further from your bachelorette party may help. You don’t want to feel miserable and hung over on your wedding day.

Do Something You Want to Do

Do what you want to do. Enjoy your day. However, when ideas are thrown around, and guests starts to jump aboard different ideas. Is that idea something you actually want to do? Speak up! Make an executive decision! Its your party! You have control on deciding where to go and what to do. Having different dates, with different activities, and different possibilities could give options to everyone who is invited so they are able to celebrate with you.

Don’t Feel Like You Have to Invite Everyone 

Don’t invite everyone on your wedding guest list. Sometimes, the wedding guest list includes your mom’s co-worker’s girlfriend, who you barely know. It is okay to choose only certain guest to invite. Your party is for you to enjoy with the people you love and will have a good time with.

The Pitt family coat of arms was used to design the crest of the city and the colors we know and love today originated from it.

Pittsburgh is a city that has a deep rooted background in professional sports that dates back to practically its founding. The Pirates, Steelers and Penguins are the three major professional teams in the city. Yinzers are in love with their sports teams and the culture is so deep rooted into their blood. A unique aspect of Pittsburgh sports, only seen in a few other cities, is the overarching color scheme of Black n’ Gold. The toughness and simplicity to these colors emphasizes these qualities of the city itself.

Besides sports teams, the Steel City color scheme can be seen everywhere you look in the city. The color of the bridges, the city’s flag, and even featured in the Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa’s #1 hit song “Black and Yellow” all show how important these colors. However, black and gold can be used as a classy and elegant color scheme for your wedding day. Without a doubt, this color scheme can be applied to centerpieces, flowers, and on your cake for an elegant finish.

Finally, of all city color schemes, the Pittsburgh original black n’ gold is certainly the most versatile and elegant. For your Pittsburgh wedding, incorporating these colors is a great way to show off your Steel City pride![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][vc_video ratio=”16-9″ link=”https://vimeo.com/345731771″][/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

The Cookie Table is a staple of Pittsburgh weddings! Don’t miss out on having this at your wedding!

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Pittsburgh has many traditions that stem from the numerous regional backgrounds and heritages found in this city. Pittsburgh is considered a melting pot of cultures and tradition unlike many other major cities around the world. Italian, Polish, German, and many, many more are what create our wide ranges of diversity. But, when defining our most traditional aspect of our weddings, being the Cookie Table, we created a nationwide trend.

The cookie table is unlike others, where you have the freedom to include any type of desert that you desire. Likewise, it will be a good way to get your family and friends together before hand to bake the cookies! Traditionally, it is the mothers, grandmothers, and other women of the family who will put their baking efforts to the test for your big day. However, anyone is welcome to pitch in! Whether it’s one table or an entire room, the designated cookie table area is always a highlight for Pittsburgh weddings.

From lady locks, to brownies, there is no limit on what you bring. Remember, be sure that you have enough cookie to feed your guests! Smaller venues may call for a more simple and elegant cookie display. However, large, extravagant wedding receptions can handle a huge assortment! Dozens of assorted cookies will fill the tables to overwhelm people with options; in a good way of course. Then, when the party is all said and done, provide bags for whomever to bring home some treats for later!

No matter if you are from Pittsburgh or not, a table full of cookies is an aspect to any wedding that will truly stand out. From your youngest cousin, to your great grandmother, every one of all ages will absolutely love the cookie table. Consider this for your upcoming big day![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Pride Month: Is Your Vendor Gay Friendly?

Pride Month: Who’s Walking Down the Aisle?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Pride Month: Who’s Walking Down the Aisle?” font_container=”tag:h1|font_size:40|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Satisfy%3Aregular|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text][vc_video ratio=”16-9″ link=”https://vimeo.com/343052376″][/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Deciding how you and your partner walk down the aisle is an important aspect of your wedding. Here are some ideas to change things up!

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The way a couple walks in traditional weddings is almost always the same. They begin with the groom waiting patiently at the altar for his bride while she walks down the aisle. However, what happens when your wedding involves a same sex couple? Should you both walk together? Do you both stay at the altar? Do you meet up half way down the aisle?

The answer is simple: Do whatever you want to do! If you both want to walk together, go for it! If you want to have one person walk down the aisle, that works too! Ultimately, do whatever you think will work best for your wedding! Some other ways of walking down the aisle include using two aisles, meeting halfway, and the communal entrance.

If the venue allows, the two-aisle entrance is perfect to give both you and your spouse the spotlight at the same time! This would involve you and your partner walking simultaneously down two separate aisles then meeting at the altar. Also, if using this method, be sure to have enough photographers to capture images on both sides!

The communal entrance is another creative way of starting your ceremony. With this method, there is no need to worry about who starts the ceremony or who walks down the aisle. Before the ceremony, all guests and wedding party members will be mingling. Whenever you and your partner are ready, just make your way up to the altar and get the ceremony started!

Finally, its most important to remember that these decisions are ultimately yours. This is a choice for you to make with your partner for your wedding day! You should decide which method is best for you and your partner on your big day. Work together to pick the style that represents your relationship best.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Pride Month: Choosing Your Wedding Party

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Pride Month: Choosing Your Wedding Party” font_container=”tag:h1|font_size:40|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Satisfy%3Aregular|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text][vc_video ratio=”16-9″ link=”https://vimeo.com/341639004″][/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Don’t be held back by the uncertainty of who to Choose for Your Wedding Party. Choosing your party for your LGBTQ+ wedding is easier than you may think!

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]When considering the Bridal and Grooms party, how will you decide who to include? Who cares, just make sure they are there to support you and be there for you! Ask whoever, as long as you believe they are a true fit. You can have a man of honor, a best woman, or whatever variation you desire. This doesn’t matter! All that matters is that you are happy with your party on your big day. It all comes down to you and your personal preference.

When organizing your wedding party, don’t feel held back by ‘traditional’ wedding guidelines. For weddings today, there are not any specific standards or rules that must be followed. Just remember, when considering your invitees, don’t just ask someone because they asked you to be in their party. Be honest and understanding when choosing your party and leaving others out. This way, you can also avoid hurting anybody’s feelings.

The first step is to consider the size of your wedding. Larger weddings could usually mean a larger party, and the opposite for smaller weddings. With that in mind, you can still have as many or as few bridesmaids or groomsman as you wish. There is not a limit on who you can include. Remember, however, the quality of your party is more important than the size. Quality over quantity!

It is also crucial to remember to include the people who mean the most to your relationship. These are the people who supported you through the good, the bad, and everything in between.  Your brothers, sisters and closest friends are a great place to start.

Finally, the most important aspect of your party is to do what makes you happy! Man-of-honor, best woman, or whoever you may want to include; It all comes down to what’s best for you![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
