Have you ever considered if you need to tip any of the services helping you with your big day? Caterers? Florists? Reception Center? Hair Stylist? Most of us don’t know the ropes on tipping, so our good friends at Bride Access conducted a survey with wedding professionals to give you the insider on where tips are appreciated in the wonderful world of wedding planning. We had the privilege of being part of this survey, so check it out. There is a lot of great information to consider. Obviously these are just guidelines, but it is great to be aware of them.

No one wants a boring meal during the biggest event of their lives. You want something that will stand out. Something unique, not over priced and convenient. But perhaps tradition may be important to you as well. How do you get all of these things onto one plate? First, you have to find a great caterer that can listen to your needs. We just created the all-new “Not Your Momma’s Meatloaf: A Twist on the Traditional”, one of many new options available at The Joseph Smith Memorial Building! This is an old-fashioned comfort food with gourmet flavor, including: Lean Ground Beef with sautéed Red and Green Peppers with chunky Mashed Potatoes and Cashe Valley Cheddar Cheese, served with fresh Seasonal Vegetables.
We’re continually exploring new fun ideas, so stay tuned for more fun food finds!
Call 801.539.3136 for more information. Our event coordinators are happy to speak with you Monday – Saturday from 9am – 5pm.

Tablescapes have become very popular. Using a theme for your table decor helps you create more than just a fun look, it creates an entire experience for your guests. Tablescapes are a creative and unique way to express your personality and capture the ambiance of your event. Check out some of the tablescapes we created at a recent event held on the 9th floor of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in the Sharon/Manchester Room.
Items used to create a beach theme on your tables
Small wooden beams tied with rope, pastel flowers, rustic white tree bark surrounding some flower vases, wooden or iron lanterns and any other items such as a decorative round lifesaver is perfect for this look.
Items used for a Country Look at your tables
Items used for a Green outdoor look for your tables
Burlap works great for this Tablescape as well. Also, succulent plants, green vases and lanterns with candles. This very green Tablescape creates a succulent forest feel with a mystical, yet homey ambiance.
Several different plants and grasses create a dynamic green look with multiple textures that are very appealing to the eye. Cream colored flowers add another soft element that compliments the overall green theme.

Below are some ideas on how to create your own “Great Gatsby”/1920′s wedding!
1. Pick a venue built in the early 1900′s or a venue created with that type of feel.
The Joseph Smith Memorial Building/Hotel Utah was built in 1911. This is just one venue idea but there are several. Even an outdoor wedding event can be transformed into the 1920′s with the right decor.
2. Get a good florist and event designer to complete the look in your venue of choice.
Floral Centerpieces with Feathers – made by Flowers Squared
Feathers are a huge hit!
3. Find the Perfect Dress.
4. A beautiful, 1920′s inspired headpiece is a must!
5. A vintage bouquet tops off your whole look!
