Getting married is usually in the top three memorable events of a person’s life, due to both the excitement and the stress that comes with it. There is a lot of planning that has to take place. You need to consider the cake, flowers and venue when planning your wedding. Get your wedding plans in order by trying a few of the following savvy tips.
When purchasing your wedding cake, think about the options that could save you money. If you want a fancy wedding cake, purchase a small one for just the wedding party and buy a large sheet cake for the rest of the guests. Your guests will still enjoy it just as much as your smaller wedding cake.
Pick food for your wedding that YOU enjoy. Don’t worry about what your guests think, it’s your day to enjoy! The only thing you should consider, is if you were a vegetarian, then you should offer a few meat options to your guests and not force a tofurken on them.
If you are a bride, you should treat the groomsmen to a professional shave and haircut, the day before the wedding. This will ensure that they look as sharp as possible, so that everything is aesthetically beautiful at your wedding. Proper grooming is essential to maximize the look of the important components to your wedding.
Your ceremony is a beautiful, soul-touching event, which will bond you to your partner for a lifetime. You will appreciate having some time directly after the wedding to spend with your new spouse, so schedule in a half an hour, in some secret location, to snuggle up and enjoy your moment.
Bridal auteurs can save cash and gain more control in their rehearsal and reception venues by looking for nontraditional locations that can easily accommodate all separate bridal activities in a single place. This makes it easier to decorate and is also ideal for couples whose families will be traveling from out of town to attend.
It is okay to let loose at your wedding reception. Many people take their wedding day too serious and do not remember it is supposed to be a joyous occasion. When this happens, they look back at their special day with unpleasant memories. Laugh with your guests, and dance to upbeat music.
When inviting parents to your wedding, consider what time it will be held if they’re planning on bringing their kids. A night-time wedding with a reception that runs into the wee hours of the morning will not work well for children, so either move your ceremony to an earlier time or provide accommodation for children to have a nap during the reception.
If you love the idea of adorable flower girls sprinkling petals across the aisle before your big entrance, you can still achieve this look for less by opting for faux rose petals and silk blooms. Fresh petals can easily set you back a few hundred dollars, but faux roses look nearly identical; after all, they will be trampled underfoot shortly.
Having a smaller bridal party can save you money on gifts and the rehearsal dinner, allowing you to use the extra funds to pay for the wedding itself, upgrade items like the cake or flowers, or apply it towards your honeymoon. As long as people are able to attend your wedding, they’re content.
Did you dream as a little girl about the fabulous over-the-top wedding you’d have some day? Do you still wish to have a spectacular, magical night? There are too many things that need to be planned, making even the thought of having one overwhelming. Do not blow things out of proportion and plan everything carefully for a successful wedding.
