The Masonic Temple of Eau Claire, WI - Email- firstname.lastname@example.org
The Masonic Temple was built in 1927, opened in 1931, and has been the
headquarters of the Eau Claire Region Freemasons since then. The historic building was designed by Edward G. Hancock, specifically to provide facilities for the Scottish Rite.
This 47,000 square foot Classic Revival Style building is faced with white Indiana
limestone with most floors made of terrazzo.
The building contains an Auditorium, Wardrobe, Grand Ballroom, Small Dining Room,
a Commercial Kitchen, Classrooms, Offices, Three Lounges, and Two Symbolic Lodge Rooms.
Located on the mezzanine level is the Children's Dyslexia Center of Upper Wisconsin, one of
the charities sponsored by the Masons. They also provide charity to the Shriner's Children's
The Masonic Temple opened for public weddings about 4 years ago. They rent the
building to one couple from Thursday - Monday for wedding celebrations. They seat up to
400 people in the Auditorium and the Grand Ballroom.
This picture shows one of the backdrops available in the Auditorium. There are up to
17 backdrops to chose from. Included for your wedding convenience are the wardrobe
room for the grooms and a brides dressing room. After the ceremony you may have
appetizers in the Fireside Lounge.
Then all of the guests walk down to the basement level where the Grand Ballroom
is located. Elevators are available. This is a lovely space for a reception and there are
four caterers available for serving food. Currently Yankee Jacks, KP Catering, Houligans,
and Blue Moose Catering service the Masonic.
With the floors being made of terrazzo there is never a problem with having a dance
space available. In the small dining room, located next to the Ballroom, buffet style food
is served along cocktails at the bar. This makes The Masonic Temple an all-in-one place

It's time to organize your guest list. Where do you start?
Use a home computer database. If you don't have a computer available then a card file can be used. Card files designed for organizing these lists are sold at stationery stores and bridal specialty shops.
Add a space for when the invitation was sent, when the RSVP was returned and how many people will be attending. Numbering the back of the invitation can help keep you organized too.
Here's a wonderful chart for deciding who to invite from the site:

When do you start the list?
As soon as you can.
Determine if you wish to add children; if so, add their names to your list.
Specify if children are not welcome to attend on your invitations.
All children over the age of 16 should receive their own invitation.
Some guests may attend the ceremony, reception or both.
Once the total number of guests is settled, usually the groom's family and bride's family split the total, half and half, depending on family size and location of course. Check your lists for duplicate names. The size of your budget will be the largest factor in determining how many guests to invite.
You should also create a list of people to whom announcements, not invitations, are sent.
Announcements should never be sent to anyone who has received an invitation to the ceremony or reception but might still want to know about the marriage. Announcements should be addressed before the wedding and mailed the day of or the day after the ceremony.

Day of the Wedding
On your wedding day, you should switch your engagement ring to the third finger on your right hand. During the ceremony, your future spouse places the wedding ring on your ring finger. The custom of the third finger on your left hand being your ring finger originated in Egypt, where people believed the vein in that finger led directly to your heart. By placing the wedding ring on that finger, the groom ensures that it is in the position closest to your heart. How romantic!
Engagement Ring Etiquette
Once you’re married, tradition dictates that your engagement band be moved back to the third finger on your left hand. When you do so, your wedding ring should remain closest to your heart (where your spouse placed it on your wedding day) and your engagement ring is placed next to the wedding ring.
Some women choose to ignore ring etiquette, and instead infuse their own style on the custom. Some variations on the traditional ring placement include:
Regardless of how you choose to wear your ring, the most important thing is that it be comfortable for you and sized properly.
Follow Tradition or Become a Trailblazer
Years ago, it was tradition for a man to purchase an engagement ring with a diamond setting. However, times have changed. Other precious stones are also acceptable on an engagement ring.
Another tradition is for you and your spouse to have matching wedding bands. For instance, if you have a gold wedding band, then his would be gold as well.
Many couples are choosing to incorporate their unique style with traditional ring etiquette.
There are no rules for most faiths on how to wear wedding rings. Whether you want to become an engagement band trailblazer or stick with tradition is up to you.
Engagement and wedding rings are more than beautiful, sparkling pieces of jewelry. They are symbols of your love and future and should be treated with care and respect.
