Have You Mailed Your Wedding Invitations?

Leave a comment

Your wedding invitations are among the first things you have to handle as a newly-engaged couple (and they are really important!). Remember, though: invitations are more than just the design itself, so you will have to make sure they actually reach your guests as well.

How to mail your wedding invitations and what are some of the most important tips to know about this? We have some tips for you so read on and find out more.

  • Avoid odd-shaped invitations. We know you want to be unique and that’s totally understandable. However, if budget is a concern for you, then you might want to avoid invitations that are anything but rectangular, as the postal office will most likely charge you for any odd-shaped envelopes.
  • Don’t just drop them off. It might seem easier, faster, and more comfortable to drop them into a street mailbox – but truth be told, this also means the invitations may not get to their destination in one piece. To be safe, enter the actual postal office and send them from there.
  • Ask to have them hand-cancelled. Some postal offices use an automatized system to sort out the invitations, but this might damage them in the process. To ensure your envelopes will not be ruined, ask the postal office to hand-cancel them.
  • Use tissue paper to separate the different parts of the invitation suite. Not only does this look really pretty, but it also helps you avoid smudges (especially if you used dark ink or thermography to print your invitations).

What Is The Hardest Part about Wedding Planning?

Leave a comment

People keep saying wedding planning is one of the most difficult and stressful times in one’s life – but what is it that makes brides and grooms feel so anxious, in the end? What are the hardest parts about wedding planning?

We have some tips for you – so read on and be prepared for what lies ahead of you as the bride and groom-to-be.

  • Planning a long-distance wedding IS more difficult than planning an event at home. Just think of the logistics involved in this, the number of phone calls and emails, the uncertainty of not knowing exactly who your vendors are… In the end, though, it will be all worth it – but do make sure you are patient, organized and stick to your plan!
  • Speaking of organization, it can be difficult to stay on point even when planning a wedding that’s closer to home. There are a number of factors that influence this: the almost crazy amount of inspiration you can collect from various sources, the lack of experience in planning large events, and even the fact that you sometimes have to rely on other people to “make things happen”. Stay calm, keep your list of to do’s close and don’t panic when things don’t go exactly as planned!
  • Last, but definitely not least, keeping the parents happy may prove to be more difficult than you might have thought. From the fact that they might want to invite more people than you want to the fact that they might want to have a say in terms of menu, colors, wedding theme and even wedding attires, there’s a myriad of issues you will have to tackle with a lot of diplomacy.

Wedding Planning Tips Nobody Told You About

Leave a comment

Most certainly, weddings are very stressful and very complicated – from the moment you say “Yes” during the proposal, to the moment you bid your last farewell on the Big Day, you are bound to experience a true rollercoaster of emotions.

What are some of the wedding planning tips nobody has ever told you before – and why are they important? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • If things go too crazy, just take a break and be you (not you-the-bride-version). Grab a drink and sit down with an old friend. Talk about anything but the wedding itself. It will feel like a real break to simply chit-chat with someone you genuinely like!
  • You may have a list of things to pack when you start your wedding day – but do you have something for the end of it as well? If you plan on staying at the hotel, or if you want to travel directly to your honeymoon location, you might have to pack a bigger luggage at least a couple of days before the wedding and send it to arrive ahead of you.
  • It is perfectly fine to assign someone to “save” you from situations that are too energy-consuming for you – such as discussing with people you don’t know that well, or having everyone come over to hug you (which, yes, can be really amazing – but when the same happens with 200 guests, it can truly drain you too).

Looking for a wedding planner who will make sure your Big Day is perfect from A to Z? If you want to have your wedding in New Orleans, Food Art Inc. can help you out! Aside from our well-known catering services, we can also help you plan the most fantastic wedding your guests have ever been to – so contact us today and learn more about our services!

Common questions brides ask in regards to their big day

Leave a comment

As a bride, you want everything about your big day to be really amazing – and yet, no matter how much reading and pinning you may do, there may still be questions you haven’t found an answer to yet. We are here to help you with this – so we have gathered some of the most common questions brides ask in regards to their big day. Read on and find out more.


  • Do you have to wear a wedding veil? If yes, when will you take it off? These days, there are no actual rules as to whether or not you have to wear a wedding veil. If you find the wedding veil to be mysterious and delicate, you can definitely wear it too. Take it off after the ceremony – but remember, it is preferable that your hair stylist shows your Maid of Honor how to do this without ruining the hairstyle.
  • Is there an appropriate way to kiss? No, not really. As long as you are decent, you can definitely go beyond a simple peck. Show off your love and seal your marriage with your first kiss as husband and wife!
  • Which side should you stand on at the ceremony? This depends on where you are having your ceremony and whether or not it is a religious one. In a church, the bride stands in the left side and the groom stands in the right side (and their guests follow their lead).

Incorporate these planning tips into your wedding

Leave a comment

Planning the perfect Big Day is no child’s game – it takes time, dedication and plenty of effort (financial and otherwise) to pull together so many different items and ensure all of them are flawlessly coordinated.

How to plan a really amazing wedding day? We have collected some of the best wedding planning tips – so read on and find out more.


• Everyone should have their cake…and eat it too. And this includes any surprise guests you may have at the wedding too! Your cake should be large enough to serve all of the people who have RSPVd – but it should also accommodate any unexpected situations too. It’s much better to have cake leftovers than people who haven’t received a slice!
• Midnight snacks are a really nice touch. Everyone loves to indulge every now and again and a delicious midnight snack will keep your guests going and dancing until the morning comes. Offer them something they love, with a twist – such as mini-pizzas, grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup shots, and so on!
• Plan your music – and be really precise about it. Your DJ cannot read minds, so it’s best to give him a list of songs you want at your wedding and a list of songs you don’t want. Sure, let him do his work and allow him to entertain guests with songs they are most likely going to dance on – but be sure your favorites and least favorites are also known to the person behind the wedding “soundtrack”.

These love quotes can provide great inspiration for your wedding vows

Food Art

Love is a sentiment that transcends everything mankind has ever known: space, time, borders, and even knowledge itself. It is precisely for this reason that love has inspired so many artists, so many writers and so many musicians to create beauty that grasps at least a small part of the complexity of the most amazing feeling a human being can feel.

Your wedding vows are extremely important to you – so why not take inspiration from some of the most well-known love quotes out there, and create vows that are meaningful, unforgettable and genuinely emotional? Here are some ideas you could use:

  • 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
  • Lana del Rey. “When someone else’s happiness is your happiness, that is love”.
  • Tyler Knott Gregson. “Because of you I can feel myself slowly but surely becoming the one I have always dreamed of being”.
  • Maya Angelou. “In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.”
  • Albert Einstein. “You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.”
  • Jackson Brown, Jr. Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.”

Searching for someone who will help you the wedding you have always wanted? The Big Day that’s not only flawless from an organizational point of view, but also meaningful, personal and absolutely unforgettable? Contact Food Art Inc. and we will be there to provide you with our professional New Orleans wedding planning services!

As we enter into summer, you might be one of the brides preparing for the much-expected Big Day. And while you surely have plenty of reasons to love summer (and to have settled on a summer wedding date), the truth is that there may still be some things you might have not considered when planning the Big Day.

No worries! There are plenty of small additions you can make last-minute to make your summer wedding truly comfortable and unforgettable for everyone there! Read on to find out more.

  • Order some extra flowers. Even with the highest attention to detail and even by choosing flowers that are highly heat-resistant, there may still be some flowers that cannot withstand the temperature outside. This can be easily solved by simply ordering some extra flowers (for the boutonnieres, for example). After all, it is better to stay on the safe side, rather than worry about this!
  • Offer refreshments for the guests. Wedding planning can be really stressful – so it is understandable if you have left some things slip away. One of the issues you absolutely have to handle though is that of the water and refreshments. The last thing you want is to make your guests feel sick due to dehydration!
  • Get some bug-repellent weapons. Insect bites are nasty, they can be really annoying and they can definitely ruin a guest’s party mood – so keep the fliers away from yourself and your loved ones by providing everyone insect repellent sprays. Also, remember that there are various natural ways to keep bugs away too – such as citronella candles, for example. If your venue allows candles inside, these ones would be a great choice!
