As wonderful as getting married can be, it can also cause a lot of stress. With so many decisions to make, like flowers, dresses, venue, that it is easy to become overwhelmed. This article is filled with tips and advice to help ensure that your wedding experience is beautiful and stress-free.
Remember to consider how you would like the alcohol at your reception served, and how much it will cost. If there's a bar that's open, it can be expensive, especially the longer it's open. Inquire with your wedding venue as to what their alcohol options available are.
Typically, a wedding dress costs a lot of money. When you are dress shopping, try looking for dresses that aren't traditional wedding dresses. You could try a bridesmaid dress, and it would be cheaper than an actual wedding dress. Even if you want the dress altered to change some of the styling, it could turn out to be cheaper than a wedding dress.
Try renting diamonds if you're on a tight budget with your wedding. In this way, you will be able to wear gorgeous jewels at a nominal cost.
Be sure that any reception venue you select has enough space for you to dance. There is nothing worse than being crammed like sardines while the people around you are trying to do the Mashed Potato, so move some tables and chairs to make the extra room you need to get your groove on!
While it may seem obvious, remember that who you plan to marry should be the biggest consideration of all! Don't make this choice in a hurry. Think about this person and what things will drive you crazy, along with what you can't live without.
A thoughtful gift for destination wedding guests to receive is a basket of vacation goodies delivered to them in their room. Some examples of items that you should put in the basket include: disposable cameras, sun hats, sun glasses and tourist maps and guides. To make it easier for them to find good dining, a local restaurant guide is certainly helpful.
You don't need a big, expensive, flashy wedding cake. Talk to your local bakery owner about something smaller, or pre-cut into individual portions. Some specialty bakeries also ship fresh, low-cal cupcakes and healthy fare, like gluten-free options if you so desire.
Brides who want a look of luxury can embellish their wedding bouquets with something that sparkles, like rhinestones, Swarovski crystals, or even a tiny bit of diamonds. Add heat-fixed crystals or adhesive ones to your bouquet, or tie a piece of jewelery to it. To create a cohesive look, be sure that the colors, cut, and the size of any stones you use match or compliment each other.
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 you with other stuff, like gathering the family for group shots, also.
Provide your guests with an online itinerary of events so that everyone, including out-of-town attendees, know what they should be scheduling and planning to attend. Give them clear direction, times to be there and what they need to bring, so that things go smoothly.
