Saturday's Wedding ABC's

A.  A is for Alencon lace.  Alencon lace is a kind of needle lace and can be used on wedding gowns.  It is made in France. 

B.  B is for bar.  Most weddings will have bar for their guests to enjoy.  Open bar or beer and wine are fine, just no cash bars please.  See also Signature Drinks.

C.  C is for charger plate.  A charger plate sits on the table when you're guests are seated.  It lays between the flatware and contributes to the overall first impression of the tables.  Often, the salad plate is served on top of the charger and both are cleared together, however some locations clear the charger before the salad service.
