Evening Wedding Ceremonies

Check out Evening Weddings at Mill Rose Inn in Half Moon Bay, CA for Evening Wedding Inspiration! 

Evening weddings are a wonderful option to consider especially in warm summer months where the heat can leave guests wishing they were poolside instead of sweaty and sunburnt at a wedding. Been there, done that! In addition to the cooler temperature you and your guests will appreciate the additional time to get dressed and prepared for the wedding. You wont have to wake up in the wee hours of the morning for hair and makeup or worry about rushing around to get everything done before a noon or afternoon wedding start. You also wont have to worry about your makeup melting off your face in the heat or trying to keep cool in your beatiful dress! Your future husband and his buddies will likely appreciate it too as coats and formal wear can get quite warm.

Speaking of attire, it is traditionally expected that evening events are more formal and don’t typically include small children. All these are pluses if you have been dreading how to politely request your cousin leave her screaming brood with a sitter, or if you have a wild aunt Betty whose usual summer attire consists of flip flops and tube tops.

More guests are able to attend evening events. Busy summer days are spent running around on family trips to the beach or sporting events with evenings free for relaxing and partying at your awesome evening wedding! Family and friends who have hired sitters will likely stay to the very end of the event and be able to enjoy themselves the whole night through.

Lastly, evening weddings have a special mood that daytime weddings just can’t replicate. Romantically lit with candles, an enchanted evening under tree boughs strung with twinkle lights can provide a dramatic backdrop for your wedding. And, sparklers and fireworks make for a fun send off under a starry sky. Just remember, lighting is key in creating the mood you desire at night.

Evening weddings are an awesome alternative to afternoon weddings, creating the opportunity to offer snuggly blankets to guests, dance the night away under the stars, create romantic and intimate spaces for guests to enjoy, and to celebrate in style and comfort at an adult event.   

Sleep in, relax, and party on! Much love, VW.

Wedding Trends that Wont Get Old

  Smaller Guest Lists Let love sweep you off your feet, not a room full of people to greet! After months (or maybe even years!) of planning, you will be surprised at how quickly your wedding day flies by. At the end of it all you will likely feel exhausted. . . and hungry! One way to truly savor the day is to spend it with the people you love the most. So don’t extend an invitation to anyone you feel obligated to or someone who you worry might be offended if left out, or any distant relative you don’t speak to on a regular basis. A smaller guest list will eliminate stress and allow you to spend more time and money entertaining those closest to you. Your wedding day will feel more intimate and warm surrounded by the people who share in your everyday happiness. Live Bands/Entertainment One more trend we love is live entertainment. This doesn’t mean you have to do away with the DJ--an experienced MC can be a great asset to assist with your event schedule,
