October 19, 2011

Mojuba and Gilt Groupe help you manage your wedding day mishaps

Just in time for the holidays, or really any day… what women needs an excuse to shop?! Gilt Wedding is back and Mojuba Wedding Day Emergency Kits have been handpicked and will be featured with the likes of gown designer Carolina Herrera and jewelry from Tara Pearls. Even wedding planner to the stars Colin Cowie will be offering some wedding tips. So ladies mark your calendar for October 20th and let the shopping begin!

Whether you are eyeing a Mojuba bag for your wedding day or as a gift for your soon-to-be-married BFF, Mojuba Bride and Groom Wedding Day Emergency Kits are stuffed with all the must-have items to solve the “unexpected” mishaps that come up on the big day. Here at Mojuba we know that little things can cause major delays; delays cause tension; tension leads to stress and the dominos begin to tumble. Don’t let your wedding day come undone if your bridemaids terrific updo decides to become a horrific downdo. With our Bride and Groom bags at your side you will feel confident that you can get hitched without a hitch!

The Groom Mojuba Wedding Emergency Kit– Let’s face it ladies, how many guys, when lost, will drive aimlessly for hours instead of having a map in the car or stopping to ask for directions? Guys will be guys (and we love em for that) but do you really think your fiance and crew will be prepared for that inevitable mishap on the big day? Your soon to be hubby probably won’t have stain remover in his back pocket if he gets pizza sauce on his Tux shirt while having a pre-wedding snack to calm his jitters. Our guess is he will resort to soap and water while feverishly attempting to rub out the stain (most likely making it worse) before the ceremony begins. Your butterflies* will settle down knowing that he’s got a Mojuba Groom kit at his side. Whether the usher cuts himself shaving or the best man had garlic pasta for lunch this Groom kit will provide all of them with “Roadside Assisstance” on the big day!

The Bride Mojuba Wedding Emergency Kit– The Mojuba Bride Bag is as stylish as it is useful. It comes with an arsenal of products to handle any ordeal that might occur. Sorry we can’t help with natural disasters, but if your mom’s dress strap breaks, or your groom shoves cake in your face and your dress gets the worst of it, we will be their to save the day faster than FEMA.

            

So mark your calendars for Oct 20th and get on Gilt Wedding Shop so you will have one less thing to worry about on your wedding day!

*if you have butterflies we can help you with that too.

The Usher: Walk This Way

The usher’s role in a wedding must never be underestimated. The usher is responsible for making every guest feel welcome. He should be charming and captivating as he escorts guests to their seat. The number of ushers at a wedding ceremony depends on the number of expected guests; two ushers per fifty guests is a good rule of thumb.

Here are some of the usher’s duties:

  • Getting measured and fitted for his tuxedo (and generally paying for it too).
  • Assisting the best man with the bachelor party if asked.
  • Helping the groom with last minute wedding details.
  • Attending all pre-wedding parties. Cheers!
  • Arriving early to the ceremony. Plan to get there about an hour in advance, but if you’re in pre-ceremony pictures the couple may give you an earlier time to arrive.
  • Handing out programs (if there are any).
  • Telling guests where the restrooms are located, and becoming familiar with the layout of the site so you are able to field any questions that guests may have.
  • politely remind guests to turn off their cell phones.
  • Seating the guests. Do this by offering your right arm to female guests as they arrive (chivalry is still alive and well in the world of weddings!). If it is a couple, the male guest will walk a few paces behind the two of you. If several guests arrive together, escort eldest guests first.
  • Familiarize yourself with seating guidelines. The way guests are seated generally varies depending on the type of wedding. For example, in Christian ceremonies the bride’s guests are seated on the left side of the aisle and the groom’s guests on the right. Many times people request aisle seats to get a good look at the blushing bride. In order to ensure family (and sometimes close friends) are seated in a way that provides the best view, some couples may give pew cards to hand to an usher in order to ensure preferential seating for certain guests. We here at Mojuba love the use of pew cards because it ensures that your favorite, but chronically late, Aunt Betty still gets her front row seat at the wedding.
  • Unrolling the aisle runner.
  • In the event of rain, escort guests to their cars with an umbrella.
  • Checking that the site is cleared of all guests’ and wedding party’s belongings after the ceremony.

The usher’s role in the wedding is to be welcoming, charming, and an all around perfect gentleman.The usher is in many ways acting as a host at the ceremony. The usher sets the tone for the wedding by being the first friendly face guests see when they

The Maid Of Honor: a.k.a. Spirit Scarer Extraordinaire

October 13, 2010

In Medieval times, the bridesmaid would dress in the same clothes as the bride in order to confuse the evil spirits (if you try that now you may end up with one less friend). Acting as decoys, they would protect the bride. Nowadays, a bride will dress their bridesmaids in ugly taffeta dresses to scare away all the evil spirits, and cute guys. I mean, have you seen 27 Dresses?? The Maid Of Honor was in charge of making the bride as beautiful as possible so that the groom did not change his mind at the alter, especially if she didn’t have much of a dowry.

Here are some of the modern day duties a Maid Of Honor is expected to perform:

*Help the bride choose her dress
*Help choose flattering dresses for the bridesmaids
*Assist with wedding plans like choosing the venue and planning the seating
*Organizing the bachelorette party,  and initiating introductions and playing host
*Let guests know where the couple is registered
*Help the bride get ready on the big day
*Look after the bouquet during the ceremony
*Arrang the brides dress, train, veil, even during the ceremony, if necessary (be careful not to go overboard and be  distracting)
*Look after the bride’s make up bag (and Mojuba emergency kit).
If asked, helping choose the wedding attire.

The Best Man: From Kidnapping To Party Planning

October 6, 2010

The Best Man’s duties in a wedding have changed drastically over the years. In medieval times, the Best Man was chosen by the future groom to help him with the capturing of his bride… how romantic…NOT!! Just in case he was needed to help fight off rivals or relatives of the bride who wanted to take her back, the Best Man would stay and play bodyguard to the couple until the ceremony was completed. While the bride may not need any armor today, the Best Man at the wedding certainly needs to display some strength and courage (especially when giving his speech!).

Here  are some of the modern day jobs for the Best Man:

  • Organizing the bachelor party, and being a good host by making the introductions.
  • Helping the groom on the morning of the wedding, and riding with him to the church, or ceremony site.
  • Making sure the groom has the marriage license with him!!!
  • It’s up to the Best Man to make sure the ushers are ready before the ceremony begins. Many weddings are delayed by unorganized ushers.
  • Looking after the rings (this one’s major guys!!!).
  • Double checking all the mens’ boutonnières.  They should be on the left lapel, stem down.
  • Receiving the minister’s fee from the groom, and giving it to the minister following the ceremony.
  • Standing next to the groom at the ceremony.
  • Giving a toast at the wedding reception. No bad jokes, or old girlfriend references, please.
  • Looking after any gifts or cards.
  • Returning any rented formalwear after the wedding.


Most importantly, the Best Man should be there for his buddy in anyway possible throughout the exhausting, but wonderful, process of getting married!
