A wedding is a very joyous occasion for you and your loved ones. This article discusses tips for planning and pulling off a memorable wedding.
You can not serve everyone’s favorite top-shelf drink or you would quickly exceed the price of the dress, so consider what you like, and what will keep you within your budget. Open bars are typically very expensive, especially when they are open for long time-periods. Wedding venues will have different options, such as a limited open bar or a offering fewer options to help keep alcohol costs down.
You can add small decorative items to your entire wedding theme. For example, the bow in your hair can be the same as those used in the floral arrangements on the tables. When you show small details, it lets others know you have put in lots of effort.
Make sure to shop multiple photographers before picking the right one to shoot your wedding. You do not want to have someone taking wedding pictures that you are not pleased with. Check out online reviews or ask people you know to recommend excellent photographers within your area.
Make certain that your choice for the reception has enough dancing space. Forgetting this can end with a cramped reception, so don’t forget this important detail. You can always move chairs and tables to have more space for dancing.
Consider placing your colorful cake on a piece of fabric or tablecloth in a coordinating color. You can use solids, patters, silk, velvet or satin to tie the elements all together.
You can turn one of your friends into a “mail-order minister” so that she can officiate the ceremony. This can make your ceremony more personal, and can save you on an officiant. Before finalizing your plans though, check local regulations to make sure that this will be legitimate in your area.
If you are planning on serving multiple courses, keep guests entertained during serving with tiny portions of sweet appetizers near each guest. Opt for sugar roses that match your wedding color palette, edible, sugared petals, or thin, flavorful crackers to whet the appetite.
You can ask a cherished friend or family member to loan you a special jewelry piece for your wedding, which can be your “something borrowed”. Not only does borrowing jewelry help you perfect your look without spending extra money, but your friend will be honored to contribute to your appearance on your wedding day.
Use floral arrangements of varying heights. For flowers with long stems or compact heads, use tall vases. Place shorter vases with shorter and plumper flowers around the tall vases. Have the shorter flowers be lighter in hue than the taller blooms.
Try to dance in your wedding dress before the wedding to see if you need to bustle the train or change into dancing shoes so you can enjoy our first dance. You personally may be fine moving in a longer dress, but your fiancee may be very happy for the practice. This can help with awkwardness, particularly if your dress’s skirt is puffy.
Without the proper planning, your wedding day, which is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, can easily end up being a disaster. Put the advice you’re about to read into practice to reduce your stress, and help you more easily plan your wedding.
