Unfortunately, many people experience too much stress during wedding planning to enjoy what should be one of the happiest times of their life. Here’s some tips to help make your wedding wonderful.
Consider getting married outside of wedding season. The traditional season for weddings is May to September. During this time, wedding venues will be more expensive. If you must book then, try booking well ahead of time to get a great deal.
Have your wedding at a friend’s home. If you know anyone with a farm or a large back yard, you can drastically reduce or even eliminate a major wedding cost. The only real cost would be to hire someone to clean beforehand and afterwards.
Don’t starve yourself silly just to fit in a wedding dress. You can dehydrate and get dizzy by rushing weight loss. You don’t want to faint as you’re saying your I do’s! The best idea is to purchase a dress that has a corset back. This will allow you to adjust if necessary before walking down the aisle.
If you are looking to dazzle your guests but cannot afford a hit to the wallet, consider renting diamond jewelry. You will look stunning but won’t have to spend a lot, so your budget stays intact.
Place a full length mirror at that head of the aisle and practice walking toward it. This will help insure a trip-free wedding day. If you worry about twisting your ankle, wear pretty flats instead. Not having fancy heels is much easier to deal with than falling on your butt.
Your assistant will be helping carry equipment around for you so there is no need for them to have any specific photography training. They can help to gather up the family for group shots as well.
Make sure your wedding reception lighting can be dimmed at the venue. This may seem like it’s trivial, having the option to lower your lighting during the first dance will be nice, and then you can brighten it for the remainder of your event. Before you sign any contracts with the venue, make sure this is an option.
When you are planning table seating, try to set guests in pairs, so you can ensure every table has an even number of those sitting at it. Grouping your tables according to age is one way to seat people with others that they will have things in common with.
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 celebrates the beginning of the rest of your lives together, so you should plan ahead to make sure that your wedding goes smoothly.
