Anyone who has ever participated in the planning or preparation for a wedding, large or small, can tell you that the ordeal can be quite a handful. Dealing with the florist, baker, jeweler, tailor and more can really make you want to just get out of dodge. Read on to learn about some tips to help eliminate the stress involved.
If you had a very important person in your life who passed away, go into your jewelry box and find a piece of jewelry that belonged to them and wear it on the wedding. This will keep them right near you on one of the most important days of your life.
When thinking about wedding jewelry, consider borrowing your jewelry instead of buying it. Your friends and family may have great jewelry pieces that they will be willing to let you use free of charge. If you use someones jewelry instead of buying new, the jewelry will also hold sentimental value.
When choosing a makeup artist, look at their past work. Are you comfortable with the makeup they’ve done before? Make sure it is something you can see yourself wearing. You do not want to be an hour before your wedding with a make up artist who does your make up in a way that you dislike.
Make sure that the groom has appropriate socks for the wedding! Socks are such a small item that they may seem insignificant, but when he realizes that all his good socks are in the wash he may end up scrambling to buy a new pair at the last minute. Save him the hassle by picking him up a pair of “wedding socks” and keeping them aside for the big day.
Make sure you know exactly how many people will be attending your wedding. You need to know how many seats are needed and how much food needs to be provided. When you sent out your wedding invitations, make sure to tell people to contact you and let you know if they are coming or not.
Don’t go overboard on decorating tables with flowers. Often, flowers interfere with guests being able to converse across the table. Furthermore, one or two of your guests could be allergic to certain flowers. Try putting some scent free candles on your wedding tables.
Consider purchasing wedding insurance. If you are spending a lot of money on a wedding, then wedding insurance can protect your investment if any problems arise. For example, a supplier going bust or a wedding cancellation due to the bride or groom being ill or injured on the big day.
Practice. Many weddings have a rehearsal and a rehearsal dinner. Gather the key members of your wedding party and practice several times before the big day, not just once. This is especially important if you have complicated or long choreography or special instructions that vary from the norm.
Now you should be informed on how to create the wedding of your dreams. Whether you are planning your wedding or helping someone else plan theirs, the information from this article will come in handy.
