TIP! Wedding gowns can be pricey. When you go shopping for your wedding dress, think outside the box and look at dresses that are not typically considered wedding dresses.

Many people dream about their weddings from the time they are children, imagining all of the details that will combine to create a perfect day. Although planning a wedding can be very exciting, without the proper guidance it can be overwhelming.

TIP! When you’re planning on who to give the speeches at your wedding, have them rehearse the things they would say in front of you so you can determine if everything they say will be appropriate. Wedding guests cover many generations of family and friends, and the humor of newer generations might offend elders.

One consideration in wedding planning is alcohol service. You’ll want to determine the way that meets you needs, including the cost and the way to serve the kinds of alcohol that you prefer. The open bar option is the most costly of choices and the cost can be prohibitive for many couples but do not feel bad if you cannot afford it. Check with your venue to find out the alcohol options they have for you to choose from.

TIP! There’s nothing more important in a wedding than the person who you are marrying. Absolutely do not make this life-changing decision in haste.

Buying wedding gowns online can save you hundreds of dollars, but be sure to do it very early to allow you time to get your gown altered when you receive it. It is perfectly possible to purchase a gown for a few hundred dollars and have it altered for as little as $200. Make sure the additional costs are allowed for in the budget.

TIP! Before hiring someone to do your makeup, examine their previous work to be sure it suits your preferred look. It would certainly ruin your day to have you and your bridesmaids looking harsh in makeup that does not suit the colors or the styles you have chosen.

If you are hoping to wear some special jewelry of your wedding day but only have a limited amount of money left in your budget, consider renting some diamond pieces. You can get the stunning look without spending too much money.

TIP! Take a long time to write your vows, as this is something that is very important towards your husband or wife. Understand that marriage is a very strong commitment that requires the both of you to make sacrifices.

Don’t forget the small stuff when decorating. Take the ribbon you use in a bouquet for instance, and use the same ribbon for table centerpieces, your hair or your gown. The little details like this help you pull all of the various aspects of the wedding together into one coordinated event.

TIP! The wedding DJ needs a list of the songs you want played at the reception, but make sure they know what you dislike. Perhaps you want to avoid country crooners or hard rock tunes.

Transportation is a key element to consider when planning your wedding. Limos should be booked well ahead of time. This is also a good idea for guests who have had too much to drink at the wedding.

TIP! Sweet cupcakes are great alternatives to an expensive cake. These arrangements are typically much cheaper and convenient.

You know to provide the DJ with an idea of all the right music to play, but you should also give a list of all the wrong things he might play. Maybe it’s country music, or heavy metal, or even your “special song” from an old lover. Whatever your dislikes, make sure your DJ knows about them.

TIP! Vacation goody baskets make great delivery presents to guests at your destination wedding. Fill the basket with useful, fun items like a map, camera, sunblock and brochures from local attractions.

Sweet cupcakes are great alternatives to an expensive cake. These arrangements are typically much cheaper and convenient. Guests are able to take a cupcake when they leave, if you put them in a fancy take-out container.

TIP! Check to make sure that you can alter the lighting of the venue where the wedding reception will take place. This may seem like a minor factor, but many couples like dimming the lights for a first dance, and switching to brighter lights for the remainder of the event.

Send each guest an online itinerary, so that they know exactly when and where every important event will be. Inform people of events, like rehearsals, that they are required to attend, so they will be where they are supposed to be at the scheduled time.

TIP! When making plans for table sitting, make sure the number of guests is even at each table. Group people at tables by age so that common ground for conversations exists.

You should probably keep your wedding dress at the store until the last minute. Keeping it at home could result in staining or wrinkles. Having the bridal shop keep it will ensure that it’s pressed and fresh for your special day.

TIP! Even if your dress has been selected and paid for, you may want to store it with the bridal boutique until the day of your wedding. If it goes into your closet, wrinkles or stains may occur.

Planning your wedding doesn’t have to be overwhelming; by heeding the suggestions and advice of others who’ve gone through it, you can keep the anxiety and stress to a minimum. You’re going to find enjoyment with the planning all the way to the big day!
