You should be lucky enough to find a life partner with whom you can spend the rest of your life. Marrying someone is a big leap, and this special occasion should be planned with care. Use the following tips to help you create a beautiful, memorable wedding.
Consider getting married outside of wedding season. Traditionally, weddings take place between May and September. Venues are usually more expensive then. If you can’t plan your wedding at any other time, book your venue as soon as possible to get a great deal.
Consider your different options to find the right type of alcohol for your wedding. For example, an open bar can cost you an arm and a leg, especially if it’s open throughout your reception. Check with your venue to find out the alcohol options they have for you to choose from.
Include elements that tell about you, your spouse and the relationship. Select a theme that best represents what you mean to each other.
Keep transportation in mind when planning your wedding. For people without a ride, be sure a taxi or limo can bring them to their destination after the reception. This allows people to enjoy themselves and not have to worry about drinking and driving after the reception.
If you cannot justify the cost of a thousand-dollar wedding cake, consider contacting a local bakery and inquiring about single-serving portions, like cupcakes or cake pops. Some specialty bakeries also ship fresh, low-cal cupcakes and healthy fare, like gluten-free options if you so desire.
Brides who love fashion will perhaps want to add a dash of sparkle to their bouquet; think rhinestones, Swarovski crystals or even some diamonds. You can achieve this look by using heat-fixed or adhesive crystals or small pieces of costume jewelry. To make sure it coordinates with everything else you are wearing, be consistent with the colors, size and cut of the stones.
“Destination” wedding guests will appreciate a thoughtful gift of vacation items awaiting them in their rooms. You will want to include useful items such as a disposable camera, tourist map that shows fun places in the local area, sunglasses and a hat. It would be nice to also include a guide to local restaurants to make it easy for them to eat.
A wedding is both a joyful and a somber event. It is important to plan it with care and respect. You can utilize the advice that has been given so that you have the best wedding day.
