But, when it comes down to planning and preparing for the perfect nuptials, stress and chaos can abound. If you want to make your wedding planning as much fun as the actual wedding will be, follow these ideas.
Are you bringing in food yourself to your reception? Visit a wholesale store to stock up. When you shop this way, you can buy your food cheaper than at regular retailers. Try asking friends to split food costs.
Include in your wedding elements of yourselves, your relationship, and your life’s events. Select a theme that represents the time that you have spent with each other.
Your wedding photographs will perhaps be the most important photographs that you ever own. Select a professional to take your pictures, and do not be afraid to go above your budget if you have the money to ensure that you get the best photographs possible.
If you wish to look more stunning on your wedding day but are strapped for cash, consider renting diamonds. This will allow you to look stunning without actually having to invest in the diamonds.
If you do not want a traditional wedding cake, consider individual-sized cakes. You may be able to find a bakery willing to provide freshly-baked cupcakes that are low-calorie and available in healthier options for family with special dietary needs such as gluten or sugar-free.
Brides that have sensitive skin can get less stressed before their wedding by caring for their skin so that it looks great and won’t cause them to have a breakout when the time comes. Find products with oatmeal proteins and sea salts, for example.
Don’t rent a reception venue that has little room for dancing. People love to dance at weddings and no one wants to be crammed in a small space. If needed, move tables and chairs to free up some room for dancing.
Practice walking in your wedding dress and shoes. If you think you might twist your ankle, wear nice flats instead. No one can see your shoes under your gown anyway, but if you fall on your rear end, they’ll see a lot more than shoes.
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 staying longer, they will save money because hotels offer discounts for people that stay longer. Your guests will have a memorable trip as well.
Any couple that applies these ideas to their wedding planning might just find the process a further bonding experience. Planning a wedding as a couple will start the foundation for a successful marriage and life together. Hopefully these tips can help plan your wedding and prepare you for a lifetime of working together happily.
