Weddings are one of the most complex social events you can plan, whether the wedding is for yourself or someone else. You have a lot of options when it comes to planning a wedding. Read on for some advice about what to do to make it truly memorable.
Hold a dress rehearsal for all members of the party that are giving speeches at the reception. This will give them a chance to practice, and you’ll also be able to make sure no inappropriate remarks are planned. At a wedding, there is normally a collection of different generations present, and you need to remember that a joke that young people find funny may actually offend older guests.
Use the property of a relative or friend to hold your wedding. You might know someone with farm or large piece of real estate, which will alleviate one major cost for the wedding. Make sure you offer to hire help to prepare and to clean, though. Do not leave this up to the homeowner.
Add the finishing touches of decoration on all your wedding decor. Use the same ribbon on the bouquet for your gown, centerpieces, or even your hair. It’s the little details which will make your wedding look superior as it shows you’ve put a real effort into make it your perfect day.
Practice going down the aisle while wearing the shoes you are going to wear at the wedding. If turning your ankles scares you, choose flats. It’s better to have slightly less sexy footwear than to fall!
You don’t want to have your guests waiting as you have your wedding photos taken. Get as many pictures as possible before the ceremony. This means that your guests won’t have to wait as long at the reception for you to get there.
If you are having a destination wedding, a good gift to get your guests is a basket filled with vacation goodies sent to their room. Useful things that you may include are local attraction pamphlets, a hat, sunglasses, tourist map, and a disposable camera. To make it easier for them to find good dining, a local restaurant guide is certainly helpful.
Receptions are best held in the early afternoon. Most people will drink less during the day, which will cut back on the cost to fill the bar. Lunch receptions are usually cheaper than dinner ones, and you can use this to either get better food or apply funds towards another aspect of the wedding festivities.
Make sure your wedding reception lighting can be dimmed at the venue. This might seem a tad bit trivial, but the option should be there if you prefer to have low lighting for your first dance, as opposed to brighter lighting for the other activities. Before giving the venue the thumbs up and your money, ask them about this detail.
