Weddings are about the people getting married, not the money that has been spent. The day should be focused on celebrating the love of the newlyweds. You will find tips to make your wedding planning a breeze.
Practice your walk down the aisle many times on the days leading up to the wedding. Try to do this on location to ensure accuracy. This will ensure you’re graceful and confident when the time comes.
Are you bringing in food yourself to your reception? Visit a wholesale store to stock up. This is no secret but buying your foods from the big club stores will save quite a bit of money over retail grocery chains and that is considering the membership charge. Also, ask friends and family members to help cover the cost of the food.
Finding your perfect wedding dress might be an expensive activity. To help defray the cost of a wedding gown, you may wish to shop for dresses that may not be considered a wedding dress. For example, a formal white dress, such as a prom or bridesmaid dress, will not be as expensive as a wedding dress. The money you save by choosing a cheaper dress can be used to alter it and add some stylish details.
Your wedding photographs will perhaps be the most important photographs that you ever own. Be certain to hire the best photographer you can to get a clear and touching record of your special day.
Getting married soon? Don’t even think about crash dieting to fit into your dress. Like a mixed martial arts fighter preparing for a fight, you will end up dehydrated and light-headed if you try to rush losing weight. You don’t want to faint as you’re saying your I do’s! Buy a dress that has a corset back instead for more flexibility.
If you are having a destination wedding, surprise your guests with a basket chock full of goodies delivered to their hotel room. Useful things that you may include are local attraction pamphlets, a hat, sunglasses, tourist map, and a disposable camera. A local restaurant guide is also a great thing to include in the basket because it can help them to find great places to eat.
Midday is the best time to have wedding receptions. Most people will make plans after the reception, which minimizes the amount your guests may drink. Lunch receptions tend to be cheaper than dinner ones because of a possible lower need for alcohol. That money can then be used for other wedding expenses.
If money isn’t an issue, you may want to get married on a cruise ship with close members of your family and close friends. This means you can start your honeymoon immediately. Many cruise companies have special deals for wedding and honeymooning couples.
Multiple course receptions should have treats on the table for guests to consume between servings. Flavorful crackers will get the job done well.
Part of the wedding tradition is to wear “something borrowed,” so don’t hesitate to borrow jewelry from a friend. This can provide you with the look you wish to achieve, and make your wedding stand out.
If both bride and groom have a love for travelling, then incorporate a wedding theme that includes this passion. It’s possible to fashion wedding invitations and notices such that they look like old-fashioned postcards or train passes. A classic leather suitcase may be kept open to show family photos, wedding programs or favors.
Weddings are about the people who are getting married, not how much they spend on it. Your wedding should be an event that showcases your love. Use the tips in this piece, and you will see what makes for a really happy wedding day.
