A wedding is a magical event where two people that love each other greatly unite to live the rest of their lives together. All too quickly a nightmare is born. By following good advice, you can avoid this awful fate.
You will need to make a choice about how much alcohol you want to pay for, and which type of serving will be most cost efficient. An open bar can be very expensive over a long time period. Ask the venue you’re thinking of having the wedding at about the different types of alcohol they serve, and what they have in stock.
When thinking about wedding jewelry, consider borrowing your jewelry instead of buying it. Your friends and family may have great jewelry pieces that they will be willing to let you use free of charge. If you use someones jewelry instead of buying new, the jewelry will also hold sentimental value.
If you have a lower budget for your wedding, don’t include flowers in your decorations. For centerpieces you can use branches you find on a walk in the forest, and surround the containers you put them in with stones from a nearby river or creek. Make a bouquet out of local plants and flowers for a locavore touch!
Photographs that couples won’t think of can make their wedding album special. If you’re doing the photography, make sure to take photos of all the small things, including the rings, bouquet, invitations, program, tables, cake, food, menu, and lots of candids of the guests arriving. You can find more ideas in wedding magazines as their photography will be top notch.
Use more than one camera when photographing a wedding to be prepared for any shot. It’s nice to have two different settings, for example one wide angle lens and one long lens so you can get photos of varying aspects of the same shot. It also allows you continue taking photos even if one of your cameras dies.
Writing your vows is an important part of your wedding ceremony, and you should go slowly and think hard about what you want to say. Marriage is supposed to mean the rest of your life, including both ups and downs. Let your partner know how much you adore them and that you really do want to spend forever with them.
If you’re really worried about guests at your wedding drinking too much, you can only offer a cash bar. When people are forced to pay for their alcohol, they’re less likely to drink as much. You could also make the bar cash-only, forcing people to go to an ATM if they run out of money which, when your drunk, isn’t easy.
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. Some bakeries will even ship fresh cupcakes with fewer than 100 calories per serving as well as healthy options like gluten-free ingredients, fruit-filling instead of frosting, no-calorie sweeteners, or even tart meringue toppings.
Consider creating a gift registry at your favorite store when you are getting married. Many time, guests will buy the couple gifts that they never or rarely use. By creating a gift registry, your guests can get you and your spouse gifts that you personally want and will actually get use out of.
Be sure to browse around for experienced and skilled photographers, before you commit to one for your wedding. You don’t want a photographer who disappoints. To find reputable photographers near you, browse online review sites or get a personal recommendation from someone you know.
