The time has finally come, and you will be married soon. Planning your wedding is no small task. However, with the right advice you can plan an event that will give you some of your best memories. Read on and you will find some tips that can turn potential chaos into beauty.
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.
Buy a new perfume to wear on the day of your wedding that you have never worn before. Wear this fragrance for every special event that you have moving forward, whether it is a night out with your husband or with a good friend. This will help to remind you of your special day and give you a boost of confidence whenever you wear it.
If you will be catering your own wedding, look to wholesale markets such as Sam’s or Costco to buy supplies. This will allow you to save loads of money. Try asking friends to split food costs.
If you fear that people won’t want to give you cash wedding gifts as they don’t have a lot of money to give, include a “cash box” at the door to your reception. Guests are asked in the wedding invitations to bring their gift in an unmarked envelope, allow them to place it in the box anonymously and reducing any guilt they might feel.
On the morning of your wedding, you will have to give yourself extra time to get dressed since you will want everything to look perfect. Plan to start getting ready at least an hour before you usually would to avoid rushing to get to your wedding. This will allow you to look your best.
When figuring out your seating plan, make sure that tables only include people who know each other and who most definitely LIKE each other! Don’t seat your cousin with your boss if he once fired her for being late or your Mom and your Dad who happen to be divorced.
Keep your toasts short and to the point. Long, rambling stories about that time you were in college and went on a long road trip together start out cute but end up in yawns when they take too long. If you have a funny story to share, make sure that it is less than three minutes long.
To avoid the pitfalls of currency exchange for your guests, find out where they have to go to get local funds before they arrive. Take everyone as a group to the location where you can exchange your money and call ahead to ask if they can accommodate everyone at the same time, maybe in a room outside the main area, so they don’t have to wait in line.
Using these tips and others like them will help you get to the alter with a smile on your face. You can make the most of your day and the most of your budget and perhaps create a lifetime of fond memories.
