Weddings take work when it comes to planning. Those last couple weeks can really cause stress to build up. But, with ample planning, you can rest assured that your day is going to go smoothly. Ahead are some tips that will make this event go well.
If there will be speeches, then be sure to censor the content to make them appropriate. Certain jokes or comments might not sit well with certain age groups.
Spice up your wedding reception by choosing an ethnic inspired menu. Chicken and steak have been done to death, so you may want to branch out a little. Variety is important and you want everyone to remember your wedding dinner.
Getting married soon? Don’t even think about crash dieting to fit into your dress. This will only make you lightheaded and dehydrating, and it could even make you ill. You would hate to faint while standing at the altar. Rather, consider a corset style dress that you can tighten or loosen on your wedding day.
Take a long time to write your vows, as this is something that is very important towards your husband or wife. Keep in mind that getting married is a commitment that might require some sacrifices. Express your love in your vows.
You need to tell your DJ what you do want to be played, but also make sure he or she understands what not to play. Maybe it’s country music, or heavy metal, or even your “special song” from an old lover. Make sure to tell your husband-to-be what type of music won’t be played.
Before choosing a photographer for your wedding day, browse around for ones with the most skill and experience. You never want a photographer who is unlikely to make you happy in the end. To find reputable photographers near you, browse online review sites or get a personal recommendation from someone you know.
Practice your walk for the aisle when you’re standing by a mirror so that you can be sure of how to walk right, especially when you want to wear heels. Flats may be a better choice if you think you may hurt your feet. Having footwear that is less sexy but will keep you from falling is an easy decision to make.
Even if you picked out and bought your dress, the wedding shop should keep it until your wedding. Keeping it at home could result in staining or wrinkles. Having it at the shop means it will be unwrinkled for the big day.
If one of your friends or relatives becomes ordained over the Internet, he or she can preside over your wedding ceremony. This makes the wedding a bit more personal, and also means you don’t have to pay the fee for a justice of the peace. Before finalizing your plans though, check local regulations to make sure that this will be legitimate in your area.
Do not allow your guests to get bored or restless between the courses of your meal. Sugar roses that blend with your wedding colors would be a nice touch.
Borrowed jewelry is both beautiful and acceptable for your wedding. This “something borrowed” will enhance the way you look and feel and add a special touch to the day.
Seasonal flowers that are native to your state may not be easy to find at your wedding location, especially if it’s a completely different climate. Consult with a florist to see which flowers are in season or most readily available at the time of your wedding.
For an outdoor wedding, have an backup plan in case of rain or other unforeseen conditions. Set up a large canopy for shade or rain. A location with access to the indoors would also work well, just in case of bad weather. Get proper installation of temporary walkways at the outdoor site to make sure muddy conditions do not end up soiling the shoes of the wedding participants or the guests.
The marriage itself is what is important, so the right fit is essential. A perfect wedding facilitates a perfect marriage. Plus, if you can survive planning a wedding, you have just weathered your first real test of working together in a stressful situation.
