The first logical thought for a couple after deciding to marry is what the wedding will be like. Weddings can be delightful and full of friends and family that celebrate your commitment and love, but they take tons of work. Here is some advice to help your wedding run smoothly.
If you choose to take care of your own food serving at your wedding, try going to wholesale stores, such as Costco. This is no secret but buying your foods from the big club stores will save quite a bit of money over retail grocery chains and that is considering the membership charge. Try asking friends to split food costs.
You can save a lot of money by buying your wedding gown online, but buy it with enough time to spare so you can get it altered prior to the big day. I bought my gorgeous gown online for only $150, but it cost me another $200 to have it altered to fit me perfectly. Budget in this additional cost.
Choosing your spouse is obviously the biggest decision you will make. This is a huge commitment, and rushing into things for the sake of being married may be catastrophic. You have to consider why you want to live with this person and work on the things that could be obstacles in a marriage.
Look at samples of past work before hiring a makeup artist. Do you like their style? Consider doing a trial run before the big day. You don’t need to be around an hour before the wedding stuck with a makeup artist that did a poor job.
Keep transportation in mind when planning your wedding. You should have taxis and limos to take people home when it’s over. This allows people to enjoy themselves and not have to worry about drinking and driving after the reception.
Make sure to shop multiple photographers before picking the right one to shoot your wedding. A good photographer is crucial. Get recommendations from people you know if you aren’t sure who to use.
Place a full length mirror at that head of the aisle and practice walking toward it. This will help insure a trip-free wedding day. If you worry about twisting your ankle, wear pretty flats instead. Wouldn’t you rather have mediocre-looking footwear than wearing something that could cause harm?
Choose someone who has an interest in photography that you will enjoy working with. The assistant can help line up family members and round them up for group shots.
If you have friends and family over to a special wedding destination, find out if they would like to stay for the honeymoon as well. It’s a great way to get a group discount and they can share in the special memories you are going to make at your chosen destination. This helps make your wedding experience more memorable for everyone!
Planning a wedding takes much work, but it’s so worth it when all is said and done. It’s all about celebrating, so enjoy the day. Use the advice here so you can have yourself a fantastic wedding.
