Let’s face it, the Super Bowl is less about football and more about the party and you can’t really have a party without good food. So we’ve gathered some of our favorite Super Bowl themed recipes to share with you. Enjoy!

Deciding whether or not to give the option of “plus one” can be a very difficult and sensitive subject. When has someone been in a relationship long enough to include their significant other? Should you feel guilty for not providing a plus one option? How do you handle guests that are upset with your decision? Basically the whole process is very stressful. 

First thing’s first: stay calm. This is YOUR wedding, and you’re inviting guests who you want to add to your special day, not your best friend’s on again off again fling. You don’t have to worry about pleasing every single person in attendance, because the odds of that happening are astronomically low. Your guests are there for you and want to celebrate your marriage whether they are with a date or not.

Here are a few general ideas to follow. Try to group single guests at tables to sit with each other so they can party stag together. A large group of co workers or teammates can be invited without plus ones. If you have someone traveling from out of town who may not know other guests give them the option of a plus one so they are not totally alone. Whether they are dating someone or not, the wedding party should get dates. They did shell out quite a bit of time and money over the last year. It is also a good idea to address the invitation personally to dates. I think if you know their partners name without having to search social media it is safe to say they should be invited. 

Ultimately this is your day and you should include only the people you want to attend.

Featured Bride and Groom: Carrie & Nick
Nick and I met at the University of Kansas during the last semester of our junior years when we were randomly assigned to do a group project together.  When school ended and with our families in Minnesota and Arizona at the time we decided to pack up and move to a city we had both always loved- Denver! Not long after our move to Denver my parents fell in love with Colorado as well and bought a home in the mountain town of Breckenridge. Nick and I have had many fun weekends with our dogs, friends and family in Breck- which is why we decided it was the perfect place for our wedding!
 
We chose Wedit after a friend had mentioned seeing an ad about it on Pinterest. I had always wanted a wedding video Nick and I could watch every year and eventually share with our kids; however, I had no idea how expensive videographers could be. Wedit is so reasonably priced and gave us the ability to have multiple perspectives of the wedding day as well as catch some personal moments a professional videographer would have not been a a part of. Our friends and family all loved getting to feel like they were involved in making this movie for us which adds such an outstanding personal touch to the video.
 
Like I said to the editors at Wedit after viewing our final “highlight reel”- I am forever indebted to whoever put our footage together. We are SO incredibly happy with the result and look forward to watching our video every year on our anniversary. I can’t thank the editors at Wedit enough for exceeding all my expectations!
Thanks Carrie & Nick for allowing us to share your beautiful story and footage!

Well, Christmas is upon us! This is a week full of get togethers, family parties, exchanging presents, and let’s not forget, lots of food. 

This month’s recipe is for peppermint bark. It literally takes less than 25 minutes and it is sure to impress your entire family.

Ingredients:

12 oz. dark chocolate chips

12 oz. white chocolate chips

2 tbsp peppermint extract

8 candy canes

*Note: The difference in chocolate chips makes a big difference in the taste. Use good quality chocolate chips for the best results!

Directions:

Crush unwrapped candy canes in a bag. Place to the side. Melt dark chocolate chips in a double boiler. Spread on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden. While dark chocolate is in the freezer, melt the white chocolate the same way and stir the peppermint extract into the melted chocolate. Immediately spread melted white chocolate on top of the dark chocolate completely covering all the dark chocolate. Sprinkle crushed candy canes over the top and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden. Take bark out of the freezer, break into pieces, and enjoy!

One batch of this recipe makes quite a lot of bark. I made some last weekend and this was my finished plate!

Happy Holidays!

Each month Wedit will feature past clients on our blog. Enjoy our first December Feature Bride and Groom Ashley & Bill!

 

I met Bill met when I was in high school, but we were not high school sweethearts! However, I did always have a crush on Bill, but the timing just never seemed right. Eventually we went on our separate ways when Bill left for Western Illinois University and I finished my senior year of high school. Bill and I reconnected one summer when I came home from college, and Bill was working his first “real” job. I ran up to Bill, excited to see him again, and a few days later Bill asked me out on a date. I, thinking this was just old friends getting together again, was surprised and intrigued by our newfound connection. Bill made me laugh like no one else ever had and was such a gentleman. We dated through the summer and decided to stay together while I finished my senior year at The University of Illinois. Fast forward a few years…we bought a house together in our hometown. One day while I was working, Bill had set the stage for his proposal at our townhouse. I returned home to a house filled with rose petals and Bill down on one knee. Elated, I said yes! We wed on July 27, 2013 in Geneva, IL, and the wedding was even better than anything we could have dreamt about. People always told us it would be a day we would never forget, but you never really know how true that is until you experience it yourself. We still currently live in our townhouse and are excited to eventually start a family.

 

We chose Wedit for our wedding because we really wanted a video of our wedding day, but we did not have the budget to spend $2000 on a videographer. I started researching different options online until I found Wedit. I absolutely LOVED the home video feel of the video cameras—it made it very personal and intimate. I was nervous that we would not get enough footage, but our guests videotaped EVERYTHING! We had nothing to worry about. I could not be happier with our wedding video, and I think I have watched it over 20 times since I received it. Thanks, Wedit!

 

A huge thank you to Ashley & Bill for sharing their story along with their edited highlight reel!
