Ice, Ice, Baby Who's Got The Ice?

Ice, ice, who's got the ice? Is not a question you want to be asking at your wedding reception. I know, it seems like a paltry thing to consider, but like so many other things, if it's NOT in your contract don't presume your reception venue is in charge of providing ice or that they will have an ice machine that will churn out ice on demand.

This point was brought home to me when I read a post by some great bloggers, Southern Event Planners.   One of their recent posts pointed out you need to hammer out "who's got it, who's bringing it, and when will it be there." Their point? Never assume...we all know what the saying is about assuming things!

Just because you've hired a caterer don't presume they're bringing the ice or that a venue has an ice machine.  If the bridal couple is tasked with bringing the wine, beer or other alcohol for the reception, there's a better than even chance that ice is their responsibility as well.  So hammer this point out in your contract and be sure to add it to a check list of things to go over with your caterer in the days before your wedding.

For more great practical wedding tips for planning your own wedding, spend some time reading through the information provided by Southern Event Planners, they have a wealth of information that can help you plan your wedding reception.
