Independence Harbor Blog
Independence Harbor's "All Inclusive" Wedding Menu Package includes stationary hors d'oeuvres offering a selection of our popular Martini Appetizer Bars. Our oversized martini glasses are artfully displayed and tables are beautifully decorated with fabric and fresh flower cuts and food art creations to match your color scheme. Choose from our "Mashed Potato Martini Bar", "Sweet Potato Martini Bar", "Macaroni and Cheese Martini Bar", "Nacho Martini Bar", and watch your guests delight in creating their own "Martini Appetizer" with all their favorite toppings. And don't hesitate to suggest a special "Martini Bar" unique to you! We have had "French Fry Bars" and "Taco Bars" and more! And, of course if you are also in the mood for a martini of the "non-food" variety, our skilled bartenders are happy to create your favorite liquid martini!
Here are some of the latest trends that we are seeing in invitations. Essentially, the style of your invitation sets the tone for your wedding.
Try dreamy Watercolor borders giving a fresh modern look, Landscapes offering hand drawn watercolor pics of your wedding location, Ombre offers a super modern different look with shades of your color palate and the always popular Monogram using a stylized combination of your names...or keep it simple and punch it up with gorgeous lined envelopes with a pattern that represents the two of you.
Having your ceremony at "I.H."? Your invitation should state the time that the ceremony begins. For example, if your wedding is a Saturday Night (6:30PM to Midnight), your invitation should read "Ceremony in the Gardens at 6:30PM at Independence Harbor". Just as at a church, your guests will arrive 15 or 20 minutes ahead of time, giving ample time to be seated, and for the Ceremony to begin on time. We are always available to answer any questions you may have.
