In your relationship, becoming engaged is one of your most memorable and romantic moments. Planning a wedding, however, isn’t always so romantic. Sometimes it stresses one or both future spouses out and may even lead to relationship trouble. Here are some tips to help you make your wedding planning as stress free and enjoyable as possible.
When you are planning on who will be giving the speeches at the wedding, have them rehearse the material before you so that you can make sure everything is appropriate. There will be many different generations at the wedding, so sometimes a joke between young people is not received well by elders.
Select your makeup artist carefully. Be sure to view his or her work before hiring. Does their style suit you? Be absolutely certain that you are happy. The last thing you need is to wind up looking like you are going trick or treating right before the ceremony begins.
Look around before committing to a photographer. You want your photographer to know exactly what they are doing. See if your loved ones know of a good photographer or look at online reviews.
See if your family wants to come for the honeymoon. Hotels tend to give discounts when guests stay for a longer period of time. This allows them to celebrate your wedding with you and have a great vacation afterwards!
Have a mid-afternoon wedding reception. Three or four o’clock is ideal. People consume less alcohol during daylight hours, and this can lower your bar tab. What’s more, receptions that feature lunch rather than dinner generally cost less money, so you can funnel the savings into better food or some other part of the wedding.
It is a good idea to plan for an even number of guests at each table, since people tend to pair off in conversations. Tables should also be grouped based on their age. This will help increase the chances that guests will be able to talk and chat together.
Plan an itinerary and post it online. Share this with your guests, so they are aware of what is happening when. You can customize itineraries or send special alerts to let each person know which events they are expected to attend.
You can ask a cherished friend or family member to loan you a special jewelry piece for your wedding, which can be your “something borrowed”. This “something borrowed” will enhance the way you look and feel and add a special touch to the day.
Anyone who is willing to use these guidelines is sure to enjoy a smoother, more hassle-free planning process. The wedding plans can be a good training ground for how you will live your married life together. The advice in this article will assist you in planning a unique wedding as a foundation for your future relationship.
