- Wedding: December 2008
My brother just got engaged and I wanted to put together for him some wedding vocab 101 flashcards! Any ideas for wedding words that a groom might not know (not like veil, wedding cake, cummerbund, et).
Here are some examples I came up with:
Opal Innocence – the number 1 fine china pattern in America
Blusher – a short veil that is often worn over the bride’s face and pulled back during the ceremony (though sometimes the word “blusher” is used to describe the shorter piece of a layered veil that is designed to fall over the bride’s face).
Fondant – one of several kinds of icing-like substance used to decorate or sculpt pastries.
Jack-and-Jill Shower – a co-ed gift-giving party held in anticipation of the wedding
Monique Lhullier, Maggie Sottero, Priscilla of Boston – wedding dress designers
Wedsite – a website about your wedding
Engraving, Thermography, Embossing and Letterpress – The differences between the printing process are how the text or image is applied to the paper for wedding invitations. Engraving and thermography provide raised ink, embossing yields raised paper only and letterpress printing results in the ink being depressed into the paper.
Escort or Seating Cards VRS. Place Cards
Escort or Seating Cards: These are the cards that let your guests know where they are sitting. Your guests will choose theirs from the table or other creative display, and it escorts them to their seat.
Place Cards: This card is actually at each person’s place at the table and denotes to them exactly where a guest is sitting at their previously assigned table.
