Hopefully, this is going to be your first and only marriage as you have found your life partner. A wedding is something that needs lots of careful planning. Use the useful tips in this article to throw a beautiful and memorable wedding.
Prior to your big day, practice walking down the aisle. Go to your wedding location to practice while wearing your wedding shoes. Your overall flow will be far smoother for your big day.
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. Some specialty bakeries also ship fresh, low-cal cupcakes and healthy fare, like gluten-free options if you so desire.
Go easy on the number of fresh flowers you put on the guest tables for your wedding reception. Often, flowers just get in your guests’ way. There are some guests that have allergies to flowers, as well. Think about putting candles that aren’t scented onto the table. This can create a romantic look.
Embellish your bouquet with sparkle. You can use rhinestones, diamonds or Swarovski crystals. Crystals come in adhesive and heat-fixed varieties, or brides may choose to add pieces of costume jewelry or heirloom pieces to their bouquets. The bouquet should not clash with your overall look, so pay close attention to the colors, cut and size of each stone.
If you are going to have a destination wedding, give your guests a basket filled with exotic goodies. Include useful items like sunglasses, a hat, tourist map, pamphlets and a disposable camera. Also make sure you include a local restaurant guide that makes it simple for them to grab a bite to eat.
If you want your colorful wedding cake as the focal point of your reception, present it on a coordinating fabric tablecloth. Your fabric could have patterns or solids and range from heavy textures to silk or satin. All of this can play up visual interest and tie various facets together into a cohesive aesthetic.
Ask a close friend or family member if they’d be interested in becoming ordained online to be able to officiate your ceremony. While having someone special officiate makes the ceremony truly yours, it also has the additional perk of allowing you to redirect the money for something else, such as flowers. Be careful, though, and check with your local officials to ensure that it is legal in your area.
Craigslist is a good place to look when you want to locate someone local to assist you with a wedding. Take along your groom to the first meeting, and ensure there is at least one face-to-face meeting prior to any money being handed over.
Making the commitment to be with one person for the rest of your life is a very serious deal, and thus your wedding needs to be treated with the upmost respect and with very close attention paid to every detail. Take these tips and use them to make sure your wedding is what you hoped it would be.
