The time to plan your wedding is here. You want this to be perfect. Planning for perfection is simple but finding it or affording it is not so easy. Do you know how to plan a perfect wedding and stay within your budget? The following advice is going to guide you with sensible strategies for planning your wedding.
If you will be preparing the food for your wedding, shop at wholesale stores. If you’re shopping wholesale, you are able to get a lot of food for less money than shopping retail. You may even ask for help with food costs from family or friends.
Buying wedding gowns online can save you hundreds of dollars, but be sure to do it very early to allow you time to get your gown altered when you receive it. I bought my gorgeous gown online for only $150, but it cost me another $200 to have it altered to fit me perfectly. The cost of an alteration should also be included in your budget.
If the idea of a thousand-dollar, thousand-calorie wedding cake leaves you with cold feet, contact local boutiques and specialty bakeries and ask about smaller, individual-sized portions. Alternatively, consider something like low-fat cupcakes, gluten-free cake, fruit-filled low calorie cakes, or other such healthy alternatives.
Brides should de-stress their skin before walking down the aisle. Look for a bridal facial treatment that includes skin-soothing and brightening ingredients like rose, sea salts, oatmeal proteins, and creamy scrubs.
Do not crowd tables with too many flowers. A lot of times, the flowers may be getting in the guests’ way. Also, you must consider that a guest may be allergic to the flowers. Try putting some scent free candles on your wedding tables.
Make certain that the reception area you choose has enough dancing space. 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.
If you’re a bride that’s passionate about fashion and luxury, you can add some pizzazz to your bouquet with crystals, rhinestones, or even diamonds. You can add some crystals that have been glued on, some costume jewelery, or an heirloom of your own. The bouquet should not clash with your overall look, so pay close attention to the colors, cut and size of each stone.
