Weddings are beautiful when they happen, but a lot of work must go into them. Those last couple weeks can really cause stress to build up. But with proper planning and preparation, you will find that things go much easier and leads to an very enjoyable wedding day. Here are some suggestions to help you in your planning efforts.
You can get a better rate on almost any venue by booking during an off period. The wedding season traditionally begins in May lasting through September. Wedding venues are more expensive during this time. If you want to book your wedding at those times, make sure you are booking far enough in advance so you get a great deal.
You can not serve everyone’s favorite top-shelf drink or you would quickly exceed the price of the dress, so consider what you like, and what will keep you within your budget. Having an open bar may cost a lot, especially if it is available throughout the entire day. Ask the venue you’ve chosen for the reception which options they have available to you, and what the cost would be for each.
You won’t get a second chance to get your wedding pictures right, so make sure these memories are recorded the right way. Have someone highly experienced help you with the pictures if you have the money to afford it. It will be important later in life.
Consider an ethnic or exotic flair for your reception dinner. The standard is usually steak or chicken, so consider standing out with something different. Your wedding dinner can be very memorable when it includes interesting variety.
An overabundance of flowers on reception tables causes trouble. Most of the time, the flowers are just in the way of your guests. Make sure to keep in mind that some guests may have flower allergies. To give the tables a romantic look, consider using non-scented candles as a centerpiece.
A wedding celebrates true love between two people. Even if you are sure you know your partner, life will still be difficult, meaning you will need to draw closer to your partner in tough times as opposed to letting them pull you apart. These tips will ensure your wedding day goes as planned.
