Eleven Tips To Help You With Your Wedding
Weddings are usually a tricky combination of planning, preparation and compromise. Get the knowledge you need to make your day just perfect.
Here are some helpful tips to help make your special day a success.
1. Choose Your Wedding Theme
If you and your spouse like similar things, you can incorporate this into your wedding theme and decorations.
If you both like to travel, to give an example, the printed items, such as invitations and thank you cards, can have the look of old maps or vintage postcards.
You could use a worn leather suitcase to display things such as your wedding program, photographs, or favors for the guest.
Similar ideas can be applied to different wedding themes.
2. Save Money By Choosing A Different Date
For more cost effective weddings, try choosing a date that is not typical for wedding season. Most weddings take place between May and September. This will be the time where the costs are the highest. If you must book during this period, schedule many months in advance to save money.
3. The Cost of Food
Should you want to cater the food yourself, look to wholesale stores like Sam’s or Costco. Shopping wholesale when it comes to food helps you get the necessary items at a much cheaper cost. See if your family and even your friends can chip in for food costs.
4. Purchasing A Wedding Gown
Purchasing wedding gowns through the Internet can help save you a lot of money, but see to it that you do it early in order to have enough time to alter it if needed. While buying a dress online may be less expensive, alterations can quickly add to the cost. Be sure to include the potential alterations cost into your budget.
Don’t starve yourself silly just to fit in a wedding dress. Not eating any food can leave you feeling dehydrated and lethargic on your big day. The last thing you want is to faint during the ceremony!
5. Selecting Your Make Up Artist
Select your makeup artist carefully. Be sure to view his or her work before hiring. Do you really like their style? Make sure that this is the style you desire. You don’t want to find yourself with make up that doesn’t appeal to you right before you are about to start your wedding.
6. Choosing a Photographer
Be sure to browse around for experienced and skilled photographers, before you commit to one for your wedding. You’re not going to want to work with people that aren’t competent photographers. For good local photographers, look at online reviews or ask around for recommendations.
7. Choosing Your Wedding Venue
Make sure that the venue you choose for your reception has adequate space for dancing. There is little worse than a crammed dance floor, so make sure to move tables and chairs prior to the dance.
8. How To Set Up Seating
One key consideration when setting up seating for your wedding meal is to avoid having an odd number of guests at any table. Try grouping tables by age groups so that the guests can talk about similar topics.
9. Provide Guests With A Timeline of Events
Give your wedding guests a timeline of events of your wedding, so they will know how to plan. Also, let your guests know what events they need to be present for, so they will be where they are supposed to be and when they’re supposed to be there.
10. Take Care Of Your Wedding Dress
Even if your dress is picked and already paid for, it is a good idea to keep it safely at the store until the big day. The likelihood of something happening to it is much higher at home than if you leave it at the bridal store, where it will most likely stay fresh and unwrinkled.
11. The Question Of Religion
Take into consideration that you will want to address the topic of religion since it will be a part of your wedding day and the life you’re building together. Of course, by this time, the two of you should have it worked out how things will operate on that level, but getting the families on the same page may be more difficult.
I hope that these tips have been helpful to you in planning your wedding. Stay positive and joyous for that big day in your life!.
