Weddings are full of emotion and a lot of responsibility, and there are many things that are going on to get the wedding just right. However, you could use these wedding tips to ensure that your wedding or that of your son or daughter goes off without a hitch from start to finish.
On the days leading up to your wedding, try to limit the amount of stress that you have by doing pilates and exercising a lot. This will help you to reduce the amount of anxiety that you have so that you can be in good shape and in good spirits when the big day comes.
Hiring an unknown or untested photographer can really be throwing caution to the wind when it comes to the lasting memories of your wedding. You want every moment of your big day captured in pictures you and your future spouse can treasure for a life time, so don’t take chances on a cheap photographer or one that has not shown proof of his or her expertise!
Get to bed very early on the night before your wedding. This will allow you to be as rested as possible and will help to reduce the levels of stress that you will feel from pure exhaustion. Getting a good night of sleep on the day before your wedding will maximize your experience.
If you’re on a tight budget for your wedding, ask your family if they can help supply the flatware and plates for the tables at your reception. You can match only the items on a single table as most people won’t be looking at what is on the other tables around them. Most people won’t even notice! The best part is that you can send the dirty dishes home with them for cleaning, saving you additional cost for the extra time at your venue.
Sometimes a good wedding tip is to keep it simple! The more detailed and extravagant the more expensive. Sure it is the best moment of your life, but perhaps that money could be better spent on a house, or even the most amazing vacation ever which we colloquially call a honeymoon.
Even if a wedding photograph looks like it isn’t what you intended, keep it, at least in digital form. Sometimes the bride and groom will see a shot that they love even if the photographic composition is lacking. The couple are the final say, so leave it up to them to pick and choose their favorites.
Do not settle for the first wedding location you find–shop around. A wedding is a once in a lifetime experience that you want to make sure is perfect. Picking the wrong venue could be the difference between having the wedding of your dreams or having the wedding of your nightmares.
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.
Brides who love fashion will perhaps want to add a dash of sparkle to their bouquet; think rhinestones, Swarovski crystals or even some diamonds. Doing this isn’t difficult. It works with adhesive crystals, costume jewelry, and expensive antique jewelry. Make sure that the stones of your choice coordinate well with your ensemble; have consistency in your arrangement of colors, size and cut.
Tips like these can keep your wedding rolling on the right foot, giving you a great experience to keep in your heart forever. Even if this isn’t your own wedding, these tips could give you great advice to carry forward to the bride and groom to ensure their special day is as memorable as they wish.
