Sadly, planning a wedding can cause a lot of stress. These wedding tips will help you have the wedding of your dreams.
One of the most vital aspects of your wedding is going to be the music that you play. Make sure that the music is modern, but is very personal too, as it should represent the two parties tying the knot. This will add to the ambience of the overall experience of your wedding.
If you are charging to photograph a wedding, make sure that all expectations are set before the big day. Find out what the couple are expecting to get at the end and what the cost will be. If you’re offering your services for free, then it’s just as important to find out what end product you’re being expected to deliver, and what it will cost you.
If the couple wants to get a shot of everyone at their wedding, try to get a shot from up high at the beginning of the ceremony when it’s likely no one will have left yet. If you’re fortunate enough to have a church with a balcony, start from there. Visit the church before the ceremony to choose the best spot to get your shot.
Keep your toasts short and to the point. Long, rambling stories about that time you were in college and went on a long road trip together start out cute but end up in yawns when they take too long. If you have a funny story to share, make sure that it is less than three minutes long.
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!
Why not provide a tour of the area to the guests of your destination wedding? You can go along too and have a fun-filled stress relieving day with your friends and family. Everyone will be able to enjoy the trip and get to know the area you’re visiting a little bit better.
Choose a wedding planner carefully if you decide to use one for your wedding. If you aren’t careful, you can choose a wedding planner who can totally take over or ignore the concept of your wedding. You want to choose the elements, theme, and overall design of the wedding, and a professional should be able to respect that.
Save money and pick up a new skill by attending a floral design course at your local community center or home and garden show. Check beforehand with the entity offering the course; some offer additional discounts and special pricing for class participants as an added perk included in the cost of workshop fees and materials costs.
This article can help you to get your wedding planning done without losing sight of what really matters. Just keep in mind that this should be a joyous occasion with your loved one, so make it special by planning ahead.
