Sadly, wedding planning often results in unnecessary stress, when it really should be something fun. Here are some wedding tips to make sure that your wedding is everything you want it to be.
Wedding gowns can be pricey. When you are dress shopping, try looking for dresses that aren’t traditional wedding dresses. A bridesmaid dress might strike your fancy as an option, and it would be cheaper than a dress designated for the bride. You can choose to alter the dress and add your own flair, while still saving plenty of money.
The photos taken during your wedding are important as you’ll look at these a lot of times during your lifetime. Choose the best photographer you can, even if it costs you extra. You want to be sure that your wedding will be remembered fondly.
Make use of a family member’s or friend’s property for your venue. If you know a person with a large backyard or farm, you can get rid of a huge wedding cost. Pay someone to clean for them before and after your wedding.
Add special little decorative touches to all of the element in your wedding. Whether it is a certain color used, or a special flower or even a special item such as doves, special touches help pull everything all together. These little details make all the difference in the effort you make in creating the perfect day.
One thing to think over during a wedding would be the transportation. Try having taxis and limos available for people who don’t have transportation after the wedding. This allows people to enjoy themselves and not have to worry about drinking and driving after the reception.
If the idea of a thousand-dollar, thousand-calorie wedding cake leaves you with cold feet, contact local boutiques and specialty bakeries and ask about smaller, individual-sized portions. Bakeries can offer options, such as sugar free cupcakes or a gluten-free cake, if you want a healthier option or if you have guests with special dietary needs.
You should let the DJ know what is okay to play and what isn’t okay to play. You may not like country music or metal, or you may have a certain song that is associated with an old flame. Tell the man you are marrying so that he is not surprised.
If you are inviting your family to a destination wedding, ask if they want to enjoy the honeymoon with you as well. They can all save some money by staying since the hotels usually offer better discounts for the longer stays. This will not only give them a single day to remember, but a whole vacation.
Try to arrange to hold your reception in mid-day. People consume less alcohol during daylight hours, and this can lower your bar tab. Having your wedding during the midday can also cut food costs and even get you a discount for booking during the day.
Use the tips provided and you can make your wedding go the way you want it. You should plan ahead of time since your wedding will be the start of your life with someone else.
