Beautiful wedding ceremonies never happen by accident. The best weddings are also the best-planned weddings. The amount of effort that goes into planning a wedding can be monumental and overwhelming, but the experience doesn't have to be stressful. Follow these tips for making sure your wedding is as great as your love for your partner.
Make sure that everyone in your wedding party knows how they're getting to the wedding site and back home from your wedding! This is especially important if you're going to be serving alcohol, and essential if it's an open bar. If you're worried about anyone getting too inebriated, offer free cab rides to anyone who doesn't bring a car, or drive them home in your limo.
Do not starve yourself just to fit into the wedding dress you want. You can dehydrate and get dizzy by rushing weight loss. Of course, you would not want to pass out as you are saying your vows. You would do better to choose a dress that has a corset back, as this allows you to adjust the fit with out the need for tailoring.
If you are planning a wedding, consider keeping your guest list on the smaller side. You can save money by having not so many guests. You can show your small number of guests' greater details such as large gift baskets, large meals, and limo services. This can be paid for just by reducing your guest list.
If you don't think your wedding guests will participate in a traditional part of the wedding, then skip it. If no one likes to dance, especially the bride or groom, then don't force them to. If you're only having married women in attendance, don't have a bouquet toss at all.
Try shopping around to identify skilled and experienced photographers before choosing the one for the wedding. Having your wedding ruined by bad pictures isn't what you're aiming for. Get recommendations from people you know if you aren't sure who to use.
When trying to find a color palette for your wedding, check out home décor books. They will have great color combinations for you to choose from. Choose the colors that catch your eye and carry those colors around with you when making purchases for your wedding. This will help you match the colors.
When you are going to get married, try to book your wedding venue at least a few months in advance. If you wait until last minute, the venue may not have any openings and you will have to scramble to find a place that will host your wedding reception on short notice.
For both brides and grooms, it is important that you do not drink too much at your wedding reception. Although a few drinks are okay, getting drunk will just make you not remember your day and could cause you to do or say something that you are going to later regret.
If you're planning a destination wedding, don't plan on getting any wedding gifts. Your guests will probably be spending around a thousand dollars just to attend, so asking for a gift on top of that is excessive. Let them know in their invitation that their attendance is enough of a gift for you!
Place a full length mirror at that head of the aisle and practice walking toward it. This will help insure a trip-free wedding day. If you are worried about a twisted ankle, choose attractive flats instead. Having footwear that is less sexy but will keep you from falling is an easy decision to make.
Having the perfect wedding, doesn't have to break the bank, or drive you crazy in the process of planning it. This article has some information that can help you to make that happen. Follow the ideas you read here and you will be amazed at how well things start to come together.
