Both you and the people who care about you are excited and happy about your wedding. Use the following suggestions to help you create the wedding of your dreams, and one you will remember forever.
After your wedding is over, make sure that you save as many items as you can, including your dress. This is important as you will want to have many reminders of your special day when you look back on the memories of your wedding. Save all items to chronicle your wedding better.
If you or your future husband have a great voice, one of the things that you can do is to sing a song at your wedding. This should be a slow song that you dedicate either to your future soul mate or someone that is looking down upon you at your wedding.
When having an outdoor wedding, the food served can be greatly affected by the weather. If you are planning a wedding during hot weather, ask your caterer if they have experience in serving food when it is hot outside. If the food cannot be kept at the correct temperature, avoid foods that have mayonnaise and any other dishes that will need to be kept cold.
Understand that the wedding ceremony is the most important part of the day and that the reception is just the celebration of this ceremony. Put a lot of thought into the readings that will be done at your wedding and where you would like to have your reception. This will optimize your overall experience.
Do not settle for the first wedding location you find–shop around. A wedding is a once in a lifetime experience that you want to make sure is perfect. Picking the wrong venue could be the difference between having the wedding of your dreams or having the wedding of your nightmares.
You do not have to get a wedding cake that is filled with countless calories. There are some bakers who are able to prepare delicious and beautiful cakes that are individually sized to be just enough to give someone the cake they want without the calories they do not want. Some bakeries are able to make healthier cupcakes that contain less than 100 calories in each serving providing you with healthier options such as fruit- fillings in replacement to frosting, calorie-free sweeteners and gluten-free ingredients.
You should avoid smoking or drinking beer from the bottle while at your own wedding reception. It’s just gauche and tacky to be seen doing something so pedestrian, so try to live up to the classy theme of your wedding. After the reception you can go home, light up a stogie and get wasted, if you so desire.
Adding items to your wedding gift registry can be very overwhelming, especially if you register at a large department store. Do not be afraid to make multiple appointments, rather than trying to build your entire registry in a single day. This approach keeps the process stress-free. Consider building your registry by household area. On one trip, choose kitchen items, then bathroom goods, then items for the bedroom and so on.
What should be a glorious wedding can quickly go south if improperly planned. Read these tips carefully, and implement them to help make your wedding planning process a bit easier.
