It is already the season for holiday party planning. If you are in charge of organizing a holiday party for a corporate or social occasion, use the following tips to reduce your stress levels throughout the planning process while putting together a fun and welcoming event:
Choose the Perfect Venue
Find a party venue with a banquet hall that provides amenities that make it much easier to plan your celebration. With a dedicated staff and space for all of your guests, planning a holiday party at an off-site venue makes it much easier to put together an event. Since the staff sets up the party and cleans up when it is over, choosing a separate venue as the party location significantly reduces your workload.
Send Invitations Early
It is a good idea to start planning your party as soon as possible so you can start to send out invitations. If you can give your guests enough time to RSVP, you will have a better idea of your final headcount before the day of the party. This makes it much easier to organize the last details without stress.
Create a Theme
Adding a theme to a party is a great way to simplify the planning process. Whether you want to organize a Winter Wonderland or create a theme based on one of your favorite holiday movies, coming up with a connective thread makes it easier to finalize all of the details for your party. You can use the theme to come up with a menu, to find decorations, and to make invitations.

As you make your way to all of the holiday parties on your calendar this season, try not to bring a cliché bottle of wine as a hostess gift. Instead, get creative by buying a platter and filling it with homemade cookies. Include some napkins on the platter so the hostess can serve the cookies right away.
You might also want to consider giving a nice bottle of dipping oils or some hand soap and a moisturizer for the kitchen. Check out this video for more hostess gift ideas.

Before you can make any plans about your wedding, you have to decide when you want to tie the knot. The season in which you plan your wedding has a big impact on the overall look and feel of the day. Keep reading to find out why you should reserve your wedding venue during the fall for a beautiful, seasonal celebration:
Stunning Backgrounds for Your Wedding Pictures
As colder weather moves in and the leaves start to change, fall provides some of the most unique and beautiful natural beauty out of any season. Even if your wedding reception venue is inside, you, your new spouse, and your wedding party can head outside with the photographer to snap some beautiful shots of your special day. Whether the leaves are still on their trees or they have already started to flutter to the ground, you are bound to get some great backgrounds for your wedding pictures.
Comfy, Cozy Accents
Think about the blissful coziness of lighting a fire or some scented candles at your wedding reception venue. Fall elicits feelings of cuddling up with a warm beverage. If you love pumpkins, apples, and other fall accents, planning your wedding during the autumn gives you the chance to incorporate them into your décor.
Summer weddings might come with hot weather, but that also means humidity. If you do not want to sweat off your makeup or to ruin your wedding hair with frizz, you might want to think about throwing your wedding in the fall. The cooler temperatures give you more variety when it comes to choosing your wedding look.
No matter what you want to plan your wedding, Chevy Chase Country Club is here with the best wedding venue in Wheeling. With a picture-perfect golf course and a fully equipped banquet hall, we can easily meet all of your wedding needs.

With invitations to fall weddings on their way to your mailbox, you are probably already starting to figure out which ones you plan to attend. As the warm summer nights fade into crisp, cool summer days, you have to choose from different wardrobe options than you had during the last few months. Use the following tips to choose what to wear to these autumn celebrations:
Choose Fall Colors
One of the best ways to dress for a fall wedding is to choose an outfit in seasonal colors. Look for cranberry reds, royal blues, rich golds, and other colors that remind you of the season as you browse through your closet or the clothing rack at the store for the perfect outfit. These hues complement the natural beauty around you while giving you a new selection of colors from which to choose.
Dress for the Weather
If the wedding venue is partially outside, you should plan your outfit accordingly. Wear some tights underneath a dress or some cute booties instead of open-toed heels. You might even want to top your outfit with a sweater or light jacket so you can be prepared for any kind of weather. These accessories add more function and style to your overall wedding look.
Opt for Heavier Fabrics
Instead of wearing light, airy fabrics that you probably wore to at least one summer wedding, you should shift your focus toward heavier fabrics. Not only do these fabrics keep you warmer, but they also bring depth and texture to your look. Do not be afraid to wear a bold fall pattern as long as it is made from a heavier material.
If you are looking for the perfect location for your fall wedding, look no further than Chevy Chase Country Club. Our beautiful wedding reception venue provides stunning views over our golf course to set the scene for your dream wedding. We also have a banquet hall and an event center. To learn more about our wedding options, visit us online or call (224) 900-2036.
