Leading up to your wedding, you will want to find a top makeup artist to do your makeup, which will maximize how you look. This is very important as you will want to be as glowing as possible and hide any imperfections so that you can be flawless when your big day comes.
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.
You don’t have to have a white or ivory wedding dress if you don’t want to, so spice up your wedding day with some color! You can choose a pastel color that highlights your hair or eyes, or have bursts of a bright color like red highlighting the details on your dress.
Make sure that if you are going to be traveling out of the country on your honeymoon, to have all of your documents intact, including your passport. This is a stress that you will not need right after your wedding and could put a damper on your honeymoon if something is lost.
Avoid cluttering tables with too many flowers at your reception. In many cases, it will just prevent guests from talking to each other. There are some guests that have allergies to flowers, as well. As an alternative to flowers, place non-scented candles on the tables. This will also help to create a romantic ambiance.
Remember to serve non-alcoholic drinks at your wedding reception. When people are planning their wedding reception, they just assume all of their guests will want to drink alcohol, which is not always the case. Also, there may be children or teenagers at your wedding, who obviously, cannot drink alcoholic beverages.
Follow this advice from star stylists before red carpet appearances: A week before your wedding, put on your head-to-toe big day look (hair, makeup, shoes, dress) and have a member of your wedding party photograph you. Pictures don’t lie, and you may find an opportunity to tweak or update your look that you might otherwise not have thought of.
If you and your soon-to-be significant other decide to register for gifts, do not forget to indicate on the registry whether or not the two of you are open to gift cards. Some friends and family members prefer to give gift certificates or gift cards in lieu of selected items, but are unsure of the bride and groom’s stance. Including this information can make others aware of your preferences.
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.
