The perfect wedding is one where the couple can relax and even laugh at the things that go wrong on their wedding day. It is a fact that something will go wrong and it is best to expect it and to take it in stride. This article can help you to adopt the right attitude to a happy wedding day.
Getting married in the peak wedding season can cost a small fortune. The wedding season is traditionally from May through September. During these months, venues become more expensive. Book in advance if you must schedule your wedding during this time.
On the days leading up to your wedding, make sure that your future husband or wife is feeling okay. You will be their biggest supporter and someone to whom they can turn. Reassurance will make them feel great and more comfortable about this huge decision in his/her life. Tell them a few motivational words to help them cope with their stress.
The right wedding dress can be quite expensive. If you are not looking for a traditional, princess type ballgown, consider looking into other types of dresses. For example, a bridesmaid dress is typically much less expensive and may be just what you’re looking for. Even if you factor in the cost of style alterations, the overall cost could be less.
Try to use a limousine driver that you know and trust so that you do not have to get worried on the day of your wedding. Make sure that he shows up in advance and pay him the extra hour to sit and wait for you. This will ensure that you arrive on time.
No one wants to wait a long time for your wedding to start, so many sure that everyone knows what’s happening so it can run smoothly. Hand out itineraries to the most important party members and ask them to try their best to keep things moving along quickly and efficiently.
Tell your DJ the songs that you do not want to be played. Was there a song that you loved once but you no longer do? Be sure your DJ is well aware of your preferences in advance to avoid discomfort.
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.
As you are planning your wedding and stressing about the cost and details, take some time to talk to some of your recently-married friends, both female and male, to help put things in perspective. Ask what the best and worst aspect of the day was for them, what they wished they had invested more time and money in and what, in retrospect, was a waste of effort. If you can get some feedback from those who have been through it before you, you can save a lot of heartache freaking out about the color of the tissue insert in your invitations and deal with what really matters.
As previously mentioned, the fairy tale wedding doesn’t really happen. Every wedding has it’s unexpected disasters and the best thing to do is accept they will happen and don’t stress about it. By putting a proper attitude in your wedding plans, you can make your wedding day a whole lot happier.
