A meaningful wedding needs only the bride and groom, someone to unite them and, of course, the love that will bind them forever. The other typical features of modern weddings, while nice to have, are little more than added frills that can end up causing anxiety and irritation. This article can be of great help in reminding you of all things important for your wedding day.
Before the wedding practice walking down the aisle. Try to practice at the wedding site so you can test your chosen shoes on the flooring at the site. That way, you will know precisely how you should move.
If you will be catering your own wedding, look to wholesale markets such as Sam’s or Costco to buy supplies. Shopping wholesale renders significant savings for food. Think about asking friends and relations to chip in on the food.
Have your wedding on the property of a family member or friend. This will help you save money on costs. Try paying someone to come out in advance and after your event to clean the place for the only location-based cost.
One of the things to consider for your wedding is transportation. Some guests might need a ride to their hotel, so make sure there are taxis available (at minimum). This is also a good idea for guests who have had too much to drink at the wedding.
Instead of choosing an expensive, towering wedding cake, choose several tiers of mini tarts or decadent cupcakes. People love these arrangements because they don’t cost a lot, are versatile, and convenient. Guests may opt to grab a cupcake on their way out, using cute take-out style containers that are provided.
See if your family wants to come for the honeymoon. This will help save money and you may get a better discount. Also, this will increase the quality of memories that you have.
You may want to consider a wedding aboard a cruise ship. The wedding itself will almost feel like the honeymoon. Some cruise ships offer special wedding and honeymoon packages.
If you plan to serve your guests a meal with multiple courses, keep them entertained during the serving process by placing small dishes of appetizing sweets on each table. Crackers or sugar roses are excellent choices.
Try to incorporate interests from both the groom and the bride when decorating. For example, if both enjoy traveling, then include little decorative touches that are reminiscent of their travels. You could fashion your invitations to resemble boarding passes or vintage postcards. Prop open a leather vintage suitcase and display family photos, wedding programs and party favors.
Clearly, there are very few things that are actually essential for a successful wedding. Everything else is just an extra luxury. Anything that stresses you out to set up or include in your wedding isn’t worth it. If you’re upset or angry on your wedding day, it can ruin your wedding. If you use what you’ve learned here, you can have the wedding you always wanted for a price you can afford!
