Planning a wedding, whether for yourself or for a friend, can be an overwhelming process. The following advice will make it easier for you to create a memorable wedding that will come off without any snags.
Photographs capture memories that will last a lifetime. Be certain to hire the best photographer you can to get a clear and touching record of your special day.
Keep transportation in mind when planning your wedding. Hiring a bus or shuttle can really help out your guests. Transportation is also helpful for those who have drank too much at your wedding.
Put some time and efforts into your vows to make sure your wife or husband will remember this day. Marriage is very serious and is a strong way to commit to someone, understand that you both might have to make some sacrifices. Make your love for your spouse-to-be crystal clear in your vows.
Don’t go overboard on decorating tables with flowers. Often, flowers just get in your guests’ way. Also, some of your guests may have allergies to the flowers. To give the tables a romantic look, consider using non-scented candles as a centerpiece.
The venue that you select for your wedding reception should have enough space for dancing and activities. 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!
Practice going down the aisle while wearing the shoes you are going to wear at the wedding. Find attractive flats if you find the walk difficult. Having footwear that is less sexy but will keep you from falling is an easy decision to make.
Your assistant just needs to be someone who is capable of keeping up with all your photographic gear and following along unobtrusively behind you. They can also help you track down family members, and get them together for group photographs.
Don’t make guests wait around while taking pictures. Get as many pictures as possible before the ceremony. You can also take pictures with both newlyweds’ families at this time.
If you want a relative or friend to officiate the wedding, they can get ordained online. This can make your ceremony more personal, and can save you on an officiant. Just be mindful of all legalities in your local area, so check with an official who handles these sorts of issues.
With a familiarity with the basics of wedding planning, you’re now ready to strike out on your own and use this knowledge to build a custom wedding experience. These tips can help reduce your stress for planning a memorable wedding for the groom and bride.
