Your wedding should be an exciting adventure for you. After all, they involve joining two hearts into one. Have you dreamed of your wedding day for years? In this article, we will provide you with some practical advice to help you plan your special day easily.
Keep in mind that religion plays a central role in not just your wedding, but your future marriage. Be sure to discuss this with your partner, as well as their family, in order to really understand their views, especially if different from your own.
One thing you need to think about during the wedding planning process is what alcohol will be served, and how much you want to spend on it. For example, an open bar can cost you an arm and a leg, especially if it’s open throughout your reception. Ask the venue about their various alcohol service options.
Are you bringing in food yourself to your reception? Visit a wholesale store to stock up. If you shop wholesale, you will be able to purchase your wedding food affordably. Think about asking friends and relations to chip in on the food.
Do not starve yourself just to fit into the wedding dress you want. Just like an athlete who is training, starving yourself could cause dehydration. Of course, you would not want to pass out as you are saying your vows. You can always choose a dress that utilizes a corset so that you are able to take your dress in for the moment.
If you’re one of the many people who don’t want to spend upward of a thousand dollars on a fat-and-sugar-laden wedding cake, check with local bakeries for lighter, individual-sized wedding pastry suggestions. There are boutiques that will bake fresh cupcakes with very few calories specifically for your event, and deliver them. These boutiques also often have healthy options available such as gluten-free, fruit based fillings instead of frosting, and healthier alternative toppings.
Don’t go overboard on decorating tables with flowers. Much of the time, table arrangements will just be in the guests’ way. Furthermore, one or two of your guests could be allergic to certain flowers. Unscented candles can get placed around the tables for an atmosphere of romance.
Do not make guests stand around when you are taking photos. Take photos of the groomsmen and bridesmaids with the happy couple ahead of time. Also, pictures of the couple with their parents can be taken in advance; this reduces the waiting time for guests coming to the reception.
Try to plan your reception for the afternoon. You can cut down on bar costs when you have a reception during the day, when people tend to drink less. What’s more, receptions that feature lunch rather than dinner generally cost less money, so you can funnel the savings into better food or some other part of the wedding.
So you have finally said yes! It is possible, indeed. It is when two people decide to share their lives with each other. You do have many decisions and plenty of planning to do, though. Apply all of the advice that you have read in this article. Congratulations to you!
