A wedding is a very joyous occasion for you and your loved ones. The intention of this article is to gather together in one place some of the best tips for having a wonderful and memorable wedding.
On the day of the wedding, try not to blow things out of proportion by thinking too far into the future. Take advantage of the actual day and enjoy every second of it, as it is going to be an event that you remember for the rest of your life.
By going international with your food choices, you not only make the event different but also exciting and fun. Steak and chicken can get boring after a while. Variety will make things very beautiful and elegant.
If you have to buy linens for your reception, make sure that they fit your table at home. Another option is to ask family and friends to bring theirs from home so you can just return them, after being professionally cleaned, when you’re done. If you have to mix and match you can adjust your color scheme to make it look intentional!
Plan your transportation wisely. Some guests might need a ride to their hotel, so make sure there are taxis available (at minimum). Also, this is helpful for those who drank liquor during the event.
Only place a few flowers in the centerpieces at your reception tables. In many cases, it will just prevent guests from talking to each other. Some people attending your wedding may have pollen allergies, as well. As an alternative to flowers, place non-scented candles on the tables. This will also help to create a romantic ambiance.
Fun wedding favors are a great way to keep kids entertained at your reception. You can go to the dollar store and pick up a basket full of goodies to set at the tables which can keep the kids busy while their parents have a great time at the party.
Leave a gift for out-of-town guests in their room as a thank you for coming so far to attend your wedding. A nice basket of snacks, like crackers, fresh fruit, and drinks, will give them something welcoming to enjoy while they are away from home. Another excellent choice would be a gift card for a local restaurant!
Pictures involving children should be taken at the first opportunity. If you have the option to take pictures with them before the ceremony, do so and you can avoid mishaps that can cause dirty, torn or disheveled clothing. Children are children and you must consider this when the time for pictures arrives.
Being the bride, it is very important for you to remember how the groom feels about the wedding plans. Make sure to run everything by him, or he will feel as if you don’t care about whatever he thinks. Even if you don’t, you better act like you do because he will not be happy with you and may not marry you!
Without the proper planning, it is all too easy for a wedding to become a comedy of errors. Read these tips carefully, and implement them to help make your wedding planning process a bit easier.
