All too often, wedding planning deteriorates into a stressful and miserable experience that depletes joy from the wedding day. Here’s some tips to help make your wedding wonderful.
One of the things that you should consider for your guests is to serve white wine instead of red wine as the drinks at your wedding. Most people will be wearing dresses that have light colors, so you will want to limit the visibility of stains if they were to have an accident.
When picking out a makeup artist, make sure you see what looks they have created previously. Is the style of make up look attractive to you? Be sure that it is exactly what you want. It can be helpful to do a practice run before the big day so that you will be happy with the results.
When thinking of what to give your guests as a wedding favor gift, consider who you’re inviting. If half your family are recovering alcoholics, then a bottle of wine is probably not a good idea. If they’re diabetics, then candy won’t work, either. Choose something they’re likely to keep as a memento and not throw out when they get home.
Be sure to browse around for experienced and skilled photographers, before you commit to one for your wedding. You never want to hire a photographer who doesn’t fit your style. To identify good local photographers, solicit advice and referrals from family and close friends.
I was at a wedding last year which seemed more like a circus. Not only did they have the typical events like bouquet tossing and garter removal, but they insisted on playing games throughout the night. Many guests won’t be expecting to have to compete at your reception, nor will they welcome the opportunity. Try to keep entertainment such as this to a minimum.
Try to avoid being sick for your wedding! Up your intake of Vitamin C and eat only healthy items in the weeks leading up to the big day. Stay away from any foods that may cause stomach upset or gas as the last thing you want to do when you’re standing at the front of the ceremony is be flatulent!
If you are going to have a caterer at your wedding, ask them if you can request which foods they make. This way, you know that the food will be to everyone’s liking. Also, ask them if you can have a sample of their food, so you know you will like it.
Make the most of your winter wedding by incorporating distinctive natural elements into your decor. For example, look for a venue that will allow guests to enjoy a roaring fire, and the scent of fresh evergreen boughs. Further adding to the cozy touch of winter, feature gourmet hot cocoa, spiced apple cider, or rich wooden accent pieces.
Plan well in advance using these tips, and you will be able to relax and have a grand time on your wedding day. Your life with your loved one begins with your wedding, and it will go a lot better with a little planning.
