There are few moments more memorable for a romantic couple than that when they became engaged. But, when it comes down to planning and preparing for the perfect nuptials, stress and chaos can abound. Here are some tips to help you make your wedding planning as stress free and enjoyable as possible.
Before your wedding day be sure to practice walking down the aisle multiple times. This absolutely needs to be done where the event is taking place with the exact footwear you plan on wearing on the big day. In this way, you can be sure everything will go smoothly on your wedding day.
When planning your wedding, think about what type of alcohol serving you want, and what type will be the most cost efficient. For example, an open bar can cost you an arm and a leg, especially if it’s open throughout your reception. Ask the venue you’re thinking of having the wedding at about the different types of alcohol they serve, and what they have in stock.
You can use the property of someone you know for your wedding. Instead of booking a ballroom, try holding your wedding in a backyard or field instead. Offer to pay people to come into the place ahead of time to do some cleaning and then after the event, and that will be the only costs.
Of course, the most important aspect of getting married is choosing the right intended! Don’t make this choice in a hurry. Consider the person and what about them you can’t live without, and also the things about them that might irritate you.
Order small individual portions of cake from a local bakery if the thought of spending the equivalent of your honeymoon on your cake does not appeal to you. For example, cupcakes can be made to be gluten-free, topped with fruit, or include artificial sweeteners.
The music ranks up there with the videographer in terms of importance. Make sure the person you hire knows what type of music you do not want played. This is far more important than getting every tune you want to hear played, as a song from a genre you and your guests hate can kill the entire mood. It could be a special song representing “old love”, a heavy metal song, or a country song. Make sure that you inform the man you are marrying too.
Successfully planning a memorable wedding can help strengthen a relationship. A couple that can make a wedding happen without arguing are probably on the road to a happy marriage. Follow these pieces of advice to not only create a wonderful wedding experience for yourselves, but also to lay the groundwork for a lifetime of cooperation and mutual support.
