Sadly, wedding planning often results in unnecessary stress, when it really should be something fun. Fortunately, here are some tips to help you plan for a memorable and joyous wedding day.
You might think you want to do some kind of traditional family things, but if you do not want to, don’t. Be appreciative of their love and interest, but be firm, if you know their ideas go against what you and your fiance have planned together. By making all your own decisions about your wedding day, you will be able remember the special occasion without any regrets in the future.
After you have determined your overall vision for your wedding, you should commit it to paper. Bring your ideas along with you as you start to shop for services and vendors. You can make a list of services that are offered in your area and narrow the selection by using price and services offered as a deciding factor.
Try to plan your reception for the afternoon. Your bar tab will be significantly less as people drink less in daylight. Having your wedding during the midday can also cut food costs and even get you a discount for booking during the day.
Typically, a wedding dress costs a lot of money. To save money, consider looking at dresses that have the same appeal as a wedding gown, but aren’t categorized as such. A bridesmaid dress, for example, could look stunning on your figure and will typically be less than half the price of an actual wedding gown. With the lower base price, you can likely also afford alterations to the style of the dress and still come in under the price of a traditional wedding gown.
Avoid cluttering tables with too many flowers at your reception. Usually, the flowers are only in your guests’ way. There might be a few of your guests that are also allergic to flowers. Unscented candles can get placed around the tables for an atmosphere of romance.
If one of your friends or relatives becomes ordained over the Internet, he or she can preside over your wedding ceremony. This can make your ceremony more personal, and can save you on an officiant. First, make sure your area allows this to happen.
The venue you pick needs to have enough room for dancing. You won’t have as much fun dancing if the space is too tight. Consider removing unneeded tables and chairs before your reception begins so that there will be more room to dance.
For those that will be helping you get ready for your wedding, such as the bride’s mother or bridesmaids, should be dressed and ready to go long before it’s time to help you with your gown and anything else. In the minutes leading up to your wedding march, all attention should be dedicated to getting you ready. If they’re busy getting themselves ready, they won’t be able to help you.
Follow these tips to ensure that your wedding is a huge success. Your life with your loved one begins with your wedding, and it will go a lot better with a little planning.
