Guest Book Idea

Regular guest books are a thing of the past! Wedding tree guest books as well as wishing tree guest books are currently trending for 2016 weddings. 

Specifically with "thumbprint" guest books, you would start with bare branches and have your wedding colors for your guests to color their prints with, and then they'd sign their name by their print!
Your other option for these brilliant wedding tree guest books would be to have a pre-printed tree that guests can sign their name in as well as leave a comment for the newly weds!

Not into Candy Bars?


Cookie bars are becoming a huge hit, as well as s'mores bars, at major events. Guests love this new trend that fits perfectly with the rustic wedding schemes. These delicious dessert ideas, best served with milk, are extremely budget-friendly (just like the Diamond Event Center!). Add options such as fudge, caramel, muffins, pies, chocolate/strawberry syrup, or whatever else you'd like! 

Fun fact: The Diamond Event Center allows candle light such as the ones in the picture below, so keep this in mind when choosing (our) venues!

Event Planning Schedule

   We took our time to sit down and see what the best checklist schedule would be for those of you who are on the DIY train! One of our favorites went something like this:

Eight weeks prior to the event:

  • Who is hosting the celebration?
  • Create a budget $$$
  • Select a location                                       
  • Set a date
  • Create a guest list
Four-six weeks before the event:

  • Choose a theme
  • Create invitations
  • Choose a catering company (US!) or select a menu
  • Start considering forms of entertainment: DJ (we have an in-house DJ!), games, photo booth, etc.
  • MAIL the invitations
Two-three weeks before the event:

  • Finalize your menu and prepare a shopping list (or meeting with your caterer)
  • Order decorations to match your theme
  • Order tableware: plates, napkins, cutlery, etc.
  • Plan and purchase party favors
  • Finalize your entertainment (booking, down payment, etc.)
One week prior to your event:

  • Finalize your head-count
  • Confirm all reservations 
  • Plan the room arrangement and seating charts
  • Confirm balloons, centerpieces, and other decor
  • Create party favors and other DIY decor
Last day before the event:

  • Make the event space is nice and clean
  • Decorate
  • Prepare non-perishable food
  • Charge cameras and be sure to have back-up batteries
  • Review your event schedule to be sure there's a nice flow
Day of the event:

  • Enjoy!


   We hope this helps you to plan your event with ease, and what'd be even easier is if you chose us for your event needs! We help you plan out your event as well as offer decorations, catering options, and an in-house DJ! Check out our website at http://www.diamondeventcenter.com/.

   Incorporating "something blue" into a wedding is a tradition that started with the Old English rhyme, "Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe." Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity; and a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity. Not everyone incorporates these into their wedding, but most do not include the sixpence in their shoe anymore. Regardless, it is a timeless tradition that your mother, sister, other relatives, and attendants gift to you, which means one less thing you have to worry about for wedding planning! :) 

   Also, if you're worried about catering options, check out our website and give us a call or e-mail us for further details on how we can make your event easier - and even tastier!
