The focus of the wedding should be the joining of two hearts not the spending of vast quantities of money. The most important factor is for the couple to enjoy their day and be surrounded by those they love. Use these tips to make sure you stay focused on what is truly meaningful about your wedding.
You can practice walking down your aisle days before the actual wedding. This needs to be done where the wedding is going to be held so that you’re familiar with the specific area and flooring as well as how your shoes react. It can also better the flow when the actual wedding takes place.
For a more affordable wedding, consider setting a date outside the traditional season for weddings. Most people get married between May and December. Wedding venues are usually more expensive during this time. Book in advance if you must schedule your wedding during this time.
Your wedding photos are important as they will be the memories you carry with you for the years to come. It would be wise to spend a few more dollars and employ a professional photographer to perfectly capture these once-in-a-lifetime images.
Make sure you view examples of work from any makeup artist you’re considering hiring. Is the style they do to your liking? Make sure that you are completely satisfied. You certainly would hate to be minutes from walking down the aisle only to discover that you hate your makeup.
Don’t rent a reception venue that has little room for dancing. You won’t have as much fun dancing if the space is too tight. Consider removing unneeded tables and chairs before your reception begins so that there will be more room to dance.
Ever wonder what you will look like gliding up the aisle at your wedding? Set up a large mirror and practice walking toward it. If you plan to wear high heels with your dress, this is especially important. If you’re worried that you will twist your ankle, you can wear flats instead. Having footwear that isn’t exactly what you wanted is a good trade-off.
It’s best to keep your dress at the store until the wedding day. It can get damaged or wrinkled while hanging in your closet. Leave it where it is, and it will look perfect on your wedding.
A sweet treat between meal courses is a great way to keep your guests happy. Whet their appetite with sugar roses in the colors of your wedding, sugared edible flower petals, or tasty thin crackers.
As an example, why not try a fusion menu with contemporary dishes that everyone enjoys? You can also offer desserts, drinks, or edible favors with an ethnic twist.
If you plan to have an outdoor ceremony, be sure to take weather (sun or rain) into account to ensure happy guests. You can rent a couple tents or look for a venue with a hall and a park. You might also think about putting wood planks down to prevent guests from stepping in mud caused by rain.
As previously mentioned, weddings are about two people that are in love, not about impressing guests with a bunch of decorations. By focusing on love, your wedding will be truly memorable. Use this advice to make for a great wedding that everyone has fun at.
