Too many people put to much importance on the wedding day and don’t give much thought to the many days after or the rest of their lives together. This article can help you to keep things in perspective and to remember that the wedding is just the first of many days of a lifetime together.
Make sure that your whole arsenal of wedding attire is as comfortable as possible as you are going to have to spend many hours wearing this material. Additionally, you should wear shoes that fit perfectly since you are probably going to be on the dance floor often. Maximize your comfort to have a memorable night.
If you are having an outdoor wedding, check your wind speeds for that day. A windy day can ruin an outdoor wedding if not planned for. If it is going to be windy, avoid hairstyles that will be greatly affected by wind. You should also keep in mind that some tents are not designed to handle very windy conditions.
Understand that the wedding ceremony is the most important part of the day and that the reception is just the celebration of this ceremony. Put a lot of thought into the readings that will be done at your wedding and where you would like to have your reception. This will optimize your overall experience.
Be sure the disc jockey you employ for your reception knows which songs you want and which sorts of songs you do not want. If you hate a specific song or a genre, such as heavy metal or country, you don’t want that played at your wedding reception. Regardless of the reason, let your DJ know to prevent you cringing at your reception.
If you’re planning a destination wedding, don’t plan on getting any wedding gifts. Your guests will probably be spending around a thousand dollars just to attend, so asking for a gift on top of that is excessive. Let them know in their invitation that their attendance is enough of a gift for you!
“Destination” wedding guests will appreciate a thoughtful gift of vacation items awaiting them in their rooms. The basket should contain useful items such as a map, sunglasses, disposable cameras and a hat. Be sure to include a local restaurant guide and possibly some coupons to make dining easy.
When picking out your wedding ring, make sure to get one you know you are going to like years down the line. Many people pick a random ring, and later decide that they do not like it. Also, if you are going to get matching bands, make sure both of you like them.
As put forth in the beginning of the article, the importance of the wedding day is that it is the first day of the rest of your lives together. Don’t get too wrapped up in just that one day. By following the advice in this article, you can keep things in perspective for your wedding and your happily ever after.
