If you can’t have a limo for your wedding, dress up the cars you’re going in. Put on crepe paper flowers, streamers and whatever else the owner will let you dress it up with. It will make you feel like you have your own customized coach, so you don’t really need a limo anyway.
If something goes wrong on your wedding day, don’t freak out! My cake fell over on the way to my ceremony, and both the best man and woman were unable to attend. In the end, those people are no longer in my life and my new best woman was a cake decorator who was able to fix the cake. It will always work out!
Flowers are a really important part of your wedding and you will want to get fresh flowers delivered to the site of your reception. Also, make sure that the flowers match the theme of your wedding, as well as, the season that you are having your wedding in. This will maximize the overall effect of your nuptial.
When setting up your reception area for your wedding, consider using tables that are different sizes and shapes. This will help your reception area stand out to your guests. You can also use various table clothes of different colors. Having a unique reception area can be very memorable for your guests.
Get to bed very early on the night before your wedding. This will allow you to be as rested as possible and will help to reduce the levels of stress that you will feel from pure exhaustion. Getting a good night of sleep on the day before your wedding will maximize your experience.
If you are having a reception at a venue that doesn’t supply the decor, you’ll have to pick up the napkins and tablecloths yourself. I wouldn’t recommend going with plastic, so instead pick up inexpensive fabric and hem the edges to make it look like a professionally finished product. Do the same for napkins in a matching color.
When you are going to get married, try to book your wedding venue at least a few months in advance. If you wait until last minute, the venue may not have any openings and you will have to scramble to find a place that will host your wedding reception on short notice.
It is good etiquette to hold your champagne glass by the stem and not the bowl so you don’t heat up the liquid inside. You should always have a glass of champagne available to you during your reception so that you’re totally prepared whenever someone is ready to toast you.
If you’ve asked a family member or friend to photograph your wedding, make sure that person really wants to do it. Don’t pressure anyone because he or she may end up so stressed out that the photographs they take don’t turn out as expected. If the photo are ruined in any way, don’t take it out on the person you asked! They did the best they could.
