If you have just become engaged, you will need to start planning your wedding right away. You may be surprised how far in advance venues and vendors must be booked in advance of your wedding date. The following tips will outline the work ahead for you to plan out the perfect wedding.
To document your wedding day the best that you can, make sure that you have a large guest book. This will allow people to write what they are feeling and jot down some of the memories that they had with you. This can be a memorable keepsake for the rest of your life.
It’s a nice gift to give the groom his own little cake. Have the cake designer make it resemble his favorite hobbies, like carpentry or football. If it’s a surprise it will be even more meaningful to him! Just make sure that the cake itself tastes good – a wedding cake that looks gorgeous but tastes bad will not leave a good memory.
Weddings are stressful. That is for sure. Whether it is big or small, there will be things that go wrong. Having a friend of confidant other than your soon-to-be spouse, will help you make it through the process. Having a friend who is on your side and who doesn’t throw their opinion in on what color the dresses should be, is a brides essential.
Think of an exotic location for your wedding to make it even more fun and memorable! You could hold your ceremony at a ranch and ride a white horse down the aisle, or have it at a wildlife preserve and have an animal bring the rings down the aisle. I wouldn’t recommend choosing a turtle for that job, though!
To prepare for photographing a wedding, it is vital to figure out how to turn off the sound on your digital camera! This may require a fair amount of research online, or calling the company directly, so do it long before the wedding date to ensure you’ll be totally prepared when the day comes.
The best photographs are candid, so try to have as many unposed photographs taken as possible. My favorite wedding shots are from my reception where guests, and myself and the groom, are laughing and having a great time. These are the memories you want to have for the rest of your married life!
Whether or not to invite children to your wedding is a delicate choice to have to make. You don’t want to offend your guests by saying they must come childless, or forcing them to find a babysitter. At the same time, you don’t want kids tearing around your reception or disrupting the ceremony. If you want to have kids there, give them something else to do or another room to play in.
Weddings can be stressful events, especially if you have not done the proper amount of research and planning. Make your life easier by taking advice from people who have been there. It’s nice to avoid mistakes that others in your shoes have made. You will cut down on your financial burden, as well as your stress.
