Wedding planning can be quite stressful on both the bride and her groom. There are many decisions that must be made. When others meddle in this, it can be quite destructive, no matter how well intentioned it may be. The following article has some great tips to help you plan your big day.
Practice your walk down the aisle many times on the days leading up to the wedding. Practice at your wedding venue, so you can see if the flooring works well with your footwear. This allows you to have confidence in every step on the big day.
To garner a better price on your wedding venue, look for a date that won’t fall during wedding season. Many brides and grooms decided to tie the knot between May and September. Wedding venues are usually more expensive during this time. If you want to book your wedding at those times, make sure you are booking far enough in advance so you get a great deal.
Wedding dresses are not cheap. To save money, consider looking at dresses that have the same appeal as a wedding gown, but aren’t categorized as such. A simpler dress may suit your needs and will be less expensive than a typical wedding dress. You can also make additions and changes to these dresses to make them more wedding appropriate and still come out ahead financially.
Use a friend’s property to host your wedding. If someone you know owns a large piece of property, like a farm or a place with a large backyard, you can cut down a major cost. Offer to pay someone to come in ahead of time and after the event to do the cleaning for them, but that should be your only cost.
Check your wedding venue to emsure that there will be enough room for a dance floor. It’s very uncomfortable to have your guests crowded onto a dance floor that is too small. Move unneeded furniture out of the way so that everyone can dance comfortably.
It can be nerve-racking to walk down the aisle with so many people watching you, so make sure to practice before the big day in a full-length mirror. If you’re worried that you will twist your ankle, you can wear flats instead. Footwear that’s not so sexy is preferable to falling on your bottom on your wedding day!
Instead of spending a lot of money to get a huge cake for your wedding, think about tiers of sweet, delicious mini-tarts or cupcakes. Times have changed and despite the oddness you may feel based on tradition, guests tend to prefer this and it saves not only money but also prevents waste. Guests will be able to get some cupcakes when they leave and then they will put them in a container that’s takeout inspired.
Good job for getting to this point. The fact that you haven’t run from the craziness of the planning stage says you are fully dedicated and looking towards the finish line. The wedding is yours. Use the tips mentioned in this article and make your wedding all you have dreamt it would be.
