Weddings are memorable occasions that take a lot of hard work to organize. One can get stressed out when planning a wedding, especially within the few weeks prior to the big day. With proper planning, you can boost your confidence and try to make everything work out, even if a few small things don’t. These tips will help you start planning.
Even if you have hired a wedding planner, having a close friend inspect all the details of your big day will help to avoid unforeseen problems. From a food allergy to seating arrangements, the littlest things can sometimes cause the biggest scene so make sure to have a trusted adviser examine every aspect of your wedding long before you finalize anything!
On the days leading up to your wedding, make sure that your future husband or wife is feeling okay. You will be their biggest supporter and someone to whom they can turn. Reassurance will make them feel great and more comfortable about this huge decision in his/her life. Tell them a few motivational words to help them cope with their stress.
Use a friend’s property to host your wedding. Using someone else’s property can free a huge expense from off your plate and allow you to allocate funds elsewhere. The only real cost would be to hire someone to clean beforehand and afterwards.
Be sure that everyone will be able to hear during your wedding. If you are having an outdoor wedding, many things can cause your guests to not be able to hear. Consider having a sound system with microphones that are able to clip on to the bride and groom. This will allow everyone to hear what you are saying.
If you fear that people won’t want to give you cash wedding gifts as they don’t have a lot of money to give, include a “cash box” at the door to your reception. Guests are asked in the wedding invitations to bring their gift in an unmarked envelope, allow them to place it in the box anonymously and reducing any guilt they might feel.
When choosing flowers for your wedding, consider the meaning behind the flower that you are choosing. For example, daisies represent innocence while orchids symbolize love. Be sure to choose a flower that has a meaning that fits you. Try learning what most flowers mean so that you can properly choose meaningful flowers for your big day.
When talking to your DJ, let him know the songs you like as well as the song you don’t like. There is probably one song from your past that you no longer like. No matter what you don’t want to hear, tell your DJ.
Bridal fashion changes drastically from year to year. Unless you are set on spending the money and storage space necessary to preserve and keep your wedding dress, consider renting a gown instead. Most formal wear rental companies are very reasonable in price and policies, and you can wear the expensive designer dress of your dreams for pennies compared to buying it for a one-time wearing.
Everything you purchase for your wedding can be negotiated! Wedding dresses are marked up by fifty percent or more. You should see if you can get a discount on the one you love, or maybe one that has a flaw that they’ve put away in the back. Even flowers can be bought at a discount if you’re not too choosy.
A wedding celebrates true love between two people. Togetherness needs to be at the forefront of your minds when life starts throwing you curve balls. Hopefully the tips you learned here will help your big day go off as planned, leaving memories that will last a lifetime.
