Weddings require months of planning to go smoothly. One can get stressed out when planning a wedding, especially within the few weeks prior to the big day. With the right planning however, you can feel confident that all will go well, even if you run into small snags. Below are a few tips to help you plan this huge event.
If you’re taking care of the food yourself, shop at a wholesale store, like Costco. This is no secret but buying your foods from the big club stores will save quite a bit of money over retail grocery chains and that is considering the membership charge. See if your friends can chip in for food costs.
Be sure that everyone will be able to hear during your wedding. If you are having an outdoor wedding, many things can cause your guests to not be able to hear. Consider having a sound system with microphones that are able to clip on to the bride and groom. This will allow everyone to hear what you are saying.
Do not go on a crash diet to fit in the dress. Just like an athlete who is training, starving yourself could cause dehydration. You would hate to faint while standing at the altar. Try buying a corset-backed dress that can be taken on or out on your wedding day.
Wedding bands are a vital part of the wedding, as they help to signify the joining of two parties. Make sure that on the days leading up to the wedding and on the wedding itself to have someone who you can count on keep track of your wedding bands to ensure security.
If you’re planning on having a cash bar at your wedding, consider giving your guests tickets for free drinks. You can place them with the guests’ name cards and then let them know what they’re for when they arrive to the reception. Also, hire a company to run the bar that will keep the drink price low.
Between your ceremony and your reception there can be a long down-time for your guests. If they can’t be seated at their tables right away, choose a venue that has a bar or lounge available for them to hang out in while they wait for the guests of honor to arrive.
Ensure that everyone coming to your destination wedding, knows exactly what to do and where to go when they get off the plane. Provide them with detailed instructions on how to get to the hotel and then, how to get from the hotel to your wedding location. They should also have help in heading home.
The marriage is the most essential part of a wedding, so the people marrying one another should know that they’ve chosen the right person. This means that you know them and their faults and are ready to go through thick and thin with them, even when the going gets really tough. Hopefully, you now know everything you need to do to have a flawless wedding. Good luck to you!
