A wedding should be about two people in love and not about seeing how much money and outrageous details you can cram into one event. The important things are your spouse and your beloved guests. Use these tips to make sure you stay focused on what is truly meaningful about your wedding.
Practice your walk for your wedding day. If possible, practice your aisle walk at the site where your wedding will be. This will give you an opportunity to practice on the actual floor using the shoes you will be wearing on your wedding day. This will ensure you’re graceful and confident when the time comes.
If you choose to take care of your own food serving at your wedding, try going to wholesale stores, such as Costco. This will enable you to save a lot of money. Consider asking your friends to help with the costs of food.
Choosing your favorite gown online can be faster and cheaper, but do so well in advance to allot extra time for alterations. I spent $100 on the gown I purchased for my wedding, but spent another $200 for altering it. Make sure to allow for additional expenses in your total budget.
Make sure that you listen to all the speeches before the big day so you can remove anything that is inappropriate. Remember that you’ll have people there from all generations, so keep the jokes appropriate.
If you want to have an unusual and interesting wedding reception, select a catering group that offers ethnic flair. Choose a variety of dishes to add flair and flavor to your reception. Your wedding dinner can be very memorable when it includes interesting variety.
If you need to look great on your wedding day but money is a bit tight, then considering renting rather than buying any diamonds used in the wedding. You can get the stunning look without spending too much money.
Check out the credentials of the makeup artist you choose. Do you really like their style? Be sure that it is exactly what you want. You don’t want to wait till the last minute only to find out that you are not pleased with the makeup job they will be doing.
If you feel as though it is wasteful to pay hundreds of dollars for a cake that will have a lot left over, consider a smaller bakery to create a smaller cake that will cost less and be more personal. There are many bakeries that will prepare low-calorie cupcakes for you, or can find ways to cut the calories from a cake. Whether they use gluten-free ingredients, a healthy fruit filling, a calorie free frosting, or something else, it’s sure to be better for you than the alternative.
If the bride has sensitive skin she can find ways to take the stress out of their lives so they don’t end up with facial irritation. Look for a treatment that includes sea salts, rose, creamy scrubs, and oatmeal proteins.
The wedding DJ needs a list of the songs you want played at the reception, but make sure they know what you dislike. Perhaps it’s heavy metal, or country music, or even a previous lover’s “special song”. Whatever it is, let him know so you don’t end up cringing at your own wedding!
Weddings are about the people who are getting married, not how much they spend on it. Your wedding can be a beautiful event because it is about love. Using these suggestions will help to create an atmosphere of love and joy.
