When the wedding plans start causing you stress, remember that the day is about your love for your fiance. Here are some pointers for you to use to get the most out of your wedding.
Practice your walk for your wedding day. Practice at your wedding venue, so you can see if the flooring works well with your footwear. Your overall flow will be far smoother for your big day.
The wedding dress may be a major expense. When you are shopping, try getting a dress that might not be traditionally thought of as one made for a wedding. A bridesmaid dress could be perfect and not as costly as a wedding dress. Even if you think you would like to change it in some way, it should be less expensive than if you bought a wedding dress.
If you cringe at the thought of purchasing an extremely expensive yet incredibly unhealthy wedding cake, there are other options available. You should consider getting in touch with local bakeries and specialty boutiques to inquire about individual portions that are healthier. Some bakeries are able to make healthier cupcakes that contain less than 100 calories in each serving providing you with healthier options such as fruit- fillings in replacement to frosting, calorie-free sweeteners and gluten-free ingredients.
Brides should de-stress their skin before walking down the aisle. Asking about a bridal spa treatment that contains skin soothing ingredients such as oatmeal proteins, sea salt and rose.
Let your DJ know what he absolutely should not play. Perhaps it’s heavy metal, or country music, or even a previous lover’s “special song”. This will help you to avoid discomfort on the big day.
Embellish your bouquet with sparkle. You can use rhinestones, diamonds or Swarovski crystals. All this requires is some heat-fixed crystals or adhesive, small costume jewelry pieces, or an heirloom piece. To make sure it goes with your ensemble, remain consistent with the cut, size and colors of the sparkles.
Instead of spending a bundle on a monolith wedding cake, consider a multi-tier design with mini-tarts or cupcakes. Many people like these sorts of arrangements because they are convenient, versatile and affordable. Guests can pick up their cupcake as they leave.
Schedule your reception for midday. Your bar tab will be significantly less as people drink less in daylight. Lunch receptions are generally less expensive than evening ones and give you the freedom of having more food choices or taking the money you saved in this area and putting it toward another aspect of your wedding.
Make sure the lights at your reception venue have dimmer switches. This small detail allows for little things like low lights on the first dance, and bright for the duration of the event. Check with the venue about these specific options before booking anything for certain.
See if a friend has something they wouldn’t mind letting you wear for your wedding. This can give you the look you want to achieve and make the wedding even more special.
For instance, you may plan your menu around ultra-modern fusion cuisine, including popular dishes from both cultures. Throw in a bit of ethic themes with special desserts and drinks.
It is impossible to predict the weather and other conditions perfectly when planning an outdoor wedding. Be sure to have a backup plan and a strategy for executing it. You can rent a couple tents or look for a venue with a hall and a park. If the ground is wet you can bring planks of wood to help keep your guests’ shoes clean.
Be considerate and think of your guests who need to travel when having a destination wedding. You might have guests that plan their vacation around your wedding, so they need enough time to get ready. Invitations or a “save the date” card ought to be sent out eight months prior to your wedding day so guests can make plans.
Do not plan a destination wedding without taking the legal requirements of your location into account. You will need to address all of these legal issues beforehand.
Take these ideas to heart in order to ensure smooth sailing on your wedding day and to plan an enjoyable experience for all. Your wedding is the beginning of your life with the person you love and will go well if you plan ahead.
