Walking down the aisle may be one of your biggest dreams. Although this can be an exciting time in your life, it can also be stressful if you don’t have the latest and greatest tips.
Before the wedding practice walking down the aisle. Get acquainted with the floor you will be walking on and do this with the same shoes you plan on wearing. 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 will enable you to save a lot of money. It is acceptable to ask others to assist with these costs in lieu of gifts if finances are tight and you do not want to run out of food at the reception.
Make sure that transportation is taken care of at your wedding. Limos should be booked well ahead of time. This helps those who have drank too much.
Try talking to local and specialty boutiques and bakeries about individual-sized portion cakes if you don’t want a fatty and expensive cake. Some bakeries will even ship fresh cupcakes with fewer than 100 calories per serving as well as healthy options like gluten-free ingredients, fruit-filling instead of frosting, no-calorie sweeteners, or even tart meringue toppings.
The wedding DJ needs a list of the songs you want played at the reception, but make sure they know what you dislike. If you hate a specific song or a genre, such as heavy metal or country, you don’t want that played at your wedding reception. Make sure to tell your husband-to-be what type of music won’t be played.
Full length mirrors are great for practicing the “aisle-walk.” If you will be wearing heels, this is even more crucial. If you fear turning your ankle awkwardly, think about flat heels instead. It’s better to have slightly less sexy footwear than to fall!
If you are inviting your family members to your wedding at an exotic location, wee if they want to stay for the honeymoon as well! By booking longer stays, money can be saved. This can help them have a memorable day and a great vacation.
If it possible for you to afford it, consider having your wedding on a cruise and invite only your closest family and friends. This would make the honeymoon begin immediately following the ceremony. Some cruise companies even have special rates for those getting married and honeymooning on their ships.
Ask your close friend if you are able to don their items for your big day. Not only does borrowing jewelry help you perfect your look without spending extra money, but your friend will be honored to contribute to your appearance on your wedding day.
If you and your intended come from vastly different backgrounds, find ways to blend both of your heritages into a unique fusion that honors both families. This will ensure that all parties are happy and satisfied.
You don’t have to let planning your wedding overwhelm you. You can plan the one of your dreams. You may even enjoy planning the wedding.
