County Bride Etiquette Pages - The Seating Plan

From County Bride's Etiquette Pages:
The Reception - Seating Plan

To avoid confusion it is essential to have a seating plan. Handwritten place cards - in the style of the invitation, numbers on tables and a plan of the room will help guests find their seat with the minimum of fuss. The ushers can be utilised to direct arriving guests to their table and help any who are having difficulty finding their seat. It may be a good idea to have a few extra places available for unexpected guests.

Something old, something new...

Traditions & Customs:
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in your shoe - the less known final line of the rhyme, slightly uncomfortable but symbolised happiness and spiritual and financial wealth.
The bride wears something old as a symbol of her old life that she is leaving behind. Something new refers to the new hope in her new life. A borrowed item (usually a garter) from a happily married woman is believed to pass on good luck to the newlyweds. Blue symbolises purity, faithfulness and her commitment to her new husband.

Merry Christmas

Still another week or so before we 'down tools' for a few 'endulging' days (although I'm sure there are many busy mums and dads who would use a word other than 'endulging').
We would like to wish a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Prosperous New Year to all our advertisers and many visitors.
