Weddings are happy and joyful times, both for couple and their loved ones. Use the following suggestions to help you create the wedding of your dreams, and one you will remember forever.
When wedding planning, think about what alcohol you want to serve, how you want to serve it, and try to be cost efficient. Open bars are expensive, especially if they’re open for a long time. With only a quick question, your venue should be able to provide you with their alcohol serving options.
If you prefer to handle the refreshments and foods on your own, save money by shopping at wholesalers, such as Sam’s Club and Costco. When you shop this way, you can buy your food cheaper than at regular retailers. Think about asking friends to assist with the food costs.
If you want to maximize your look on the day of the wedding but are on a budget, one of the things that you can do is to rent diamonds. This gives you that look you want but won’t cost you a ton so that you can stay within your budget.
When selecting a makeup artist for your wedding, be sure to see the makeup that they have done in the past. It would certainly ruin your day to have you and your bridesmaids looking harsh in makeup that does not suit the colors or the styles you have chosen. Consider doing a trial run before the big day. Don’t be one of those people who is stuck with makeup they don’t like an hour before they walk down the aisle.
Try to avoid placing a lot of flowers on each table at your wedding. In many cases, it will just prevent guests from talking to each other. Excessive flowers can also be inconvenient for any allergy sufferers who are attending your wedding. Because of this, you should think about putting candles that are non-scented onto the table in order to achieve a more romantic look.
Make sure that the venue you choose for your reception has adequate space for dancing. If you want to dance at your wedding, make sure you have the room to do so, and if you do not, simply move some of the furniture out of the way and shake your tail feather!
Those brides that are lovers of fashion and luxury can have bouquets embellished with rhinestones, diamonds, or Swarovski crystals. Crystals come in adhesive and heat-fixed varieties, or brides may choose to add pieces of costume jewelry or heirloom pieces to their bouquets. For a consistent look, all of the stones should coordinate in terms of cut, color, and size.
Don’t leave your guests waiting while you, your new spouse and the wedding party have an hour long photo shoot. Take the bridal party photos 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.
If you are hosting a destination wedding, your guests may appreciate receiving a basket of vacation goodies in their room on their arrival. Useful items you will want to include would be tourist maps, sunglasses, hats, disposable cameras and brochures of fun places they could visit while in the area. It would be nice to also include a guide to local restaurants to make it easy for them to eat.
Even a minor problem can transform a wedding from a time to celebrate into a time to commiserate. Use what you’ve just read to make sure such a wedding disaster doesn’t happen to you.
