It is the day that many people dream of their whole lives. Planning a wedding can be a very exciting process – it is the symbol, after all, of a union of two people who will spend the rest of their lives together. However, it can also feel overwhelming at times. The suggestions presented in this article will give you some ideas on how to plan your own special day.
If you have guests who are traveling to a destination wedding, make sure that you give them gift baskets at the hotel they are staying at. This will help to show the appreciation that you have for them for changing their plans and traveling to be a part of your festivities.
Booking a venue for your wedding can be extremely expensive. Instead of booking a ballroom, try holding your wedding in a backyard or field instead. You can make sure the cleaning and setup is done, of course, but that is the only thing you should have to pay for regarding the wedding venue.
If you are going to be getting married soon it would be wise to decide whether it will be a simple wedding or a grand wedding. Having this squared away from the first moment will help center and guide all the decisions related to the wedding. This will prevent a clutter of ideas.
Have an unexpected twist at your wedding to make it more memorable. If you are planning to have your wedding during the summer, consider having a winter related theme. If your wedding is planned for the winter, you could try a beach theme. Guests will remember that your wedding theme was different from the actual season.
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.
Consider buying shape-enhancing garments to wear under your wedding dress. You can buy bodysuits which slim your legs, raise your bottom, flatten your stomach and boost up your bust, giving you the perfect figure to accent the beauty of your gown. They can be expensive but you can always wear them again for any occasion that warrants it.
Transportation is an important thing to think about. Some guests might need a ride to their hotel, so make sure there are taxis available (at minimum). This is the right thing to do if you’re serving alcohol at your reception.
Effective event planners know that it’s important to do your research. Many, many people before you have gotten married and have plenty to say about planning a wedding. Learn from them! We hope the suggestions presented in this article have given you some ideas on planning your own special day.
