The only things a wedding truly has to have is a bride, a groom, a minister and of course, love. Everything else people believe they need, while nice, will just add stress to a wedding. Regardless of how simple or extravagant your wedding, remember to enjoy it.
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. An open bar is very costly and can become extremely expensive if open for long periods of time. Ask about which alcohol serving options are available through your venue.
Buying wedding gowns online can save you hundreds of dollars, but be sure to do it very early to allow you time to get your gown altered when you receive it. In fact I spent $300 in total, $100 for the gown itself, and only another $200 for the tailoring. Be sure to add the additional cost of alterations in your budget.
Avoid over-dieting just to fit your dress! All you are going to do is tire very easily and not have the energy to enjoy the big day you have been torturing yourself to plan. You don’t need to faint during the ceremony. Instead, choose a dress that has a corset back that can be taken in and out as needed on the big day.
The most important thing when considering marriage is the person you will be marrying. There is no reason to hurry things–you have an entire lifetime with this person! Take care to consider the person’s characteristics–both the things that you love about them and the aspects that are challenging.
While it’s important to provide your wedding DJ with a list of songs you love and wish to be played at your reception, it’s equally as important to let him know what you DON’T like. It could be a special song representing “old love”, a heavy metal song, or a country song. Be sure your DJ is well aware of your preferences in advance to avoid discomfort.
You could ask from any friend or family member that is capable of carrying your gear. They can help you get group shots of the family too!
