Traditional Italian Wedding Traditions

In an Italian wedding, the reception will begin with a cocktail hour where the bridal party and the guests separate for an hour and are served cocktails. During the cocktail hour food is served buffet style and the bride and groom will usually take this time to have photographs taken.

After cocktail hour the guests gather in the main dining room. The bride and groom enter and are formally introduced as husband and wife for the first time. The newlyweds then take the first dance with the wedding party soon joining in and then the rest of the guests. After some dancing, everyone is seated and speeches are given by family and friends and everyone joins in a champagne toast to the bride and groom.

Food is served throughout the reception, usually a three-course meal with plenty of dancing in between and then it is time for the bride and groom to cut the wedding cake just before the dessert course begins. Sicilian custom includes what is called “Venetian Hour” where a huge selection of pastries, fruit, cakes, and coffees are served on what is called a “Venetian Table” amidst much celebration.

After dessert is served there is more dancing and then gifts are given to the bride and groom. A tradition in Southern Italy is for the guests to give envelopes of money to the newlyweds who give a small token of appreciation called a wedding favor. In Northern Italy there is no tradition of envelopes with money, but the wedding favor is still given.

How to create that perfect wedding reception party feel!what you can do!

Decorations for a Wedding Murder Mystery Game

DECORATE YOUR PARTY SPACE AS YOU WOULD A WEDDING RECEPTION:

• Adorn the venue with white wedding bells.

• Create a wedding arch (see some below).
To make your own balloon arch, check out this link!

• Raid the dollar store, craft store, garage sales, everywhere that has inexpensive wedding decorations. Stock up on sales!

• Recycle old wedding decorations – you can use your own, a friend’s, or look for used ones on craigslist.com

• Create your own table decorations from anything you have.
– Vases with sand and candles
– Silk flowers
– Table numbers
– Candles

• Flower it up! Fake rose petals can go a long way… as can silk flowers.
Check your local dollar store and discount store for silk flowers, candles, vases, etc.

 

LIGHTING!

• Paper lanterns are also a good light source that can double as a decoration.

• String along white twinkly lights.

• String white twinkly lights in sheer fabrics and hang for both lighting and decoration.

TO MAKE IT A LITTLE MORE THEME-CENTRIC, YOU COULD:

• ENTRYWAY. Have the entryway arranged like a hotel lobby with signs pointing to “The Giovanni & Simpson Reception Room.”

• Have a guest book for all of your guests to sign in! Encourage them to make comments about the party.

• Create a wedding ceremony stage, complete with an aisle for the bride to walk down.

• Use the staged area to make announcements such as the greeting, investigation report, evidence presentation, etc.

• Create a dance floor for the reception.

• Do the first dance, dance with the parents, cutting the cake and other wedding traditions.

If serving dinner, have a head table where the bridal party will sit.
– Place a “Just Married” sign on it (included with mystery).
– Balloon arch over it optional!
– Seat other guests by where their characters should sit (with their “family” members).
– Use placecards, included with mystery, at table settings.

• Have wedding favors for your guests
– Wrap candy in tulle fabric and tie with a bow! Add a little “murder” to them by dipping the ends in red fabric paint and letting them dry.

• Have bubbles available for your guests to shower the happy couple with.

• The wedding toast! Toasting glasses rimmed with “blood” (instructions with mystery – pictured below).

• Get monogrammed napkins and such with Becky and Stanley’s monograms.

• Create wedding programs! Have the programs lying about to help people remember who all of the characters are from the mystery.

• Have disposable cameras sitting out on the tables so that the guests at the wedding can capture some great candid picts of the night.

• Have a wedding arch – you can place it on your wedding area or someplace else for pictures. To create a balloon arch, follow these directions!

¡Cree un spot fotográfico! 

Ofrezca a sus invitados un recuerdo inolvidable instalando una zona de fotos en la que puedan fotografiarse con el personaje.

Algunas sugerencias:

- Elija un lugar donde haya buena iluminación.

- Puede hacerla tan elaborada o sencilla como quiera.

- Los accesorios y la decoración pueden marcar la diferencia. Tenga a mano algunos accesorios adicionales con los que sus invitados puedan posar.

- Una forma fácil de crear un fondo es utilizar un "ambientador". Estos asequibles rollos de imágenes transforman su habitación al instante y constituyen un buen telón de fondo para su fotografía.

• Use props like wedding bells, columns, balloon arches, wedding arches, lavish chairs, anything you can think of, to create a staged area for pictures.

- Asegúrese de que hay suficiente espacio para que todos quepan en el marco.

- Para las tomas individuales de los invitados, Designe a alguien que se encargue de las fotos a medida que vayan llegando sus invitados.
Consider your character list and which character would fit the role of taking the picture. Ie, if you want mug shots, perhaps ask the investigator to be in charge of taking the pictures.

• If having a party with 20 guests, you may ask Ronnie Rhymer to take the pictures.

- Para una foto de grupo, Tome una justo antes de que se lea la introducción o justo después de que se lea la solución (antes de que la gente empiece a salir).
These are two times when you can count on everyone being around and attentive.

Alimentos

BUFFET OR BUST

If serving a meal, consider serving a buffet-style dinner. Buffets allow you the flexibility to plan for a appetizers, a full dinner, desserts or any combination of. Additionally, it helps with food serving and allows ample time for your guests to mingle while eating.

• Check out some consejos y recetas para hacer buffets aquí.

• Being a wedding, the options for foods are open to what you (as host) wish.

TIPS:

• Pick foods that you can make ahead and are easy to serve.

• Buffet-style dinners do well and cut back on the responsibilities of serving food.

• Appetizers and sweets also do well, since they allow your guests to mingle.

• Whatever you decide, input the food items into the menu (included with the mystery).

 

If serving a sit down meal:

Create a head table for the wedding party and sit guests according to their “families.”

Use namecards (included with the mystery) to distinguish where people should sit.

Desserts

SERVING SWEETS:

What’s a reception without a Wedding Cake!

– Check out these cake toppers: SpyCorpse BrideSkeletonZombie Couple.

– Have a wedding cake with a butcher knife and “blood” dripping from the cake.

– Have a wedding cake made and use toy pistols as cake toppers.

– Add candied skulls or Halloween candy to the wedding cake for added “mystery” appeal.

Chocolate fountains and candy bars – another popular trend for weddings.

WEDDING “CLASSICS”: If planning a wedding reception, don’t forget some of the “classics” like the chicken dance, the hokey pokey, the cha-cha slide, macarena and more!

MIX IT UP! Weddings are popular for having a variety of music played by a DJ. Make a mix of your favorite songs to have your crowd dancing and sleuthing at the same time. See section above for dances you will want to make sure are on your mix list.”The Wedding Singer” soundtrack is one to consider. Here is a list of the top 200 songs for wedding receptions!

MOBSTER MUSIC- Since the father of the bride has some questionable ties to organized crime, you might want to look to such soundtracks as The Godfather, The Sopranos and Bugsy to add a soundtrack to your own party!

Consejos

All of the information regarding how to run your Till Death Do Us Part party can be found online at Night of Mystery. We highly suggest that you take time to look over our website and download the Till Death Do Us Part preview file. Upon reading the introduction file of this wedding murder mystery game, it will give you a better understanding about how the parties are run and what to expect once you purchase a full mystery file.

Si todavía tiene dudas, el Preguntas frecuentes La página de Night of Mystery es un gran recurso o puede ponerse en contacto con nosotros.

Dado que nuestros juegos están escritos a medida para el tamaño del grupo (es decir, no creamos un misterio con 8 personajes y luego seguimos añadiendo más personajes), cada tamaño de misterio es único en sí mismo. Dicho esto, pasar de una versión de 10 a 15 a una de 15 a 20, no sólo añadirá más personajes, sino que cambiará el argumento de los personajes existentes, y viceversa al pasar de una versión más grande a una más pequeña.

Por ello, le sugerimos encarecidamente que obtenga un recuento de invitados antes de realizar el pedido formal. Puede hacerlo descargando una invitación, invitando a sus invitados y luego comprando su misterio una vez que tenga un número más exacto de personas que asistirán. Desafortunadamente, si te encuentras comprando la fiesta de tamaño incorrecto, tendrás que comprar otra versión del misterio para el tamaño que deseas, a menos que estés pasando de la versión de 15-20 a la de 20+.

Puedes descargue una invitación aquí antes de hacer el pedido.
