Pre Wedding Event ( Jack n Jill / Buck n Doe/ Engagement or Bridal Party )
Putting together a wedding can be time consuming but expensive. One of the ways to help with the cost is to put together a pre-wedding fundraiser ( Jack n Jill / Buck n Doe/ Engagement Party) . The basic idea is to invite friends and family to celebrate your coming nuptials. It is a fantastic way to get together and have a laid back introduction before the actual big day. It is also the initial time that your wedding party gets together as a team for your cause..
Regardless of the size of the wedding party this is the time to “lean on your friends” . The bride and groom shouldn’t have to carry the weight of planning , organizing and executing this event on their own.
Finding a venue should be your first course of action.The idea here isn’t to get a reception hall on top of the one already booked for your wedding reception . You are looking for a minimal cost facility (Royal Canadian Legion , City Recreation Centre or even a friend’s home ) . Ask around and see what venues your friends have used. Check with the venue to see if you may need a Special Occasions Permit regarding your function .
There are quite a few ways to get tickets done . One of the cheaper ways is to print business cards with all the information on it and sell those. Make sure you have numbers printed in opposite corners or a place to fill out names .Have half perforated or just rip it in half once the guest shows up for door prizes , raffles or draws .
This is where you will be using your wedding party and immediate family to help sell those tickets!
A sure fire way to get everyone fed cheaply is to have a potluck. Moms , Aunts and Grandmothers love to assist with this one . You may also just want to order some pizza. Give the local pizza store a call before hand and let them know that you will be doing a few large orders .
There are so many games that you can use at one of these events . Some of the more popular ones are
Jokers Wild, 50/50 Draw, Jelly Bean Jar , Silent Auction , Raffle & Door prizes , Toonie and/or Loonie toss , Mini Putt , Goldfish Insurance , Food Auction , Relay Race or Jail .
