Have you dreamed of the perfect wedding? While it is exciting thinking about your wedding, the planning part can turn out frustrating if you don’t have the right knowledge.
Include your children in your wedding to make sure that it’s an enjoyable experience for everyone. Start right when you begin planning by asking them what elements they would like to include in the ceremony. You can even have your oldest child walk you down the aisle and give you away to their new step-parent.
You can add certain decorative elements into the wedding dÃƒÂƒÃ‚Â©cor in order to personalize. Use the same ribbon that you use for the bouquet in the centerpieces. This will help with the elegance at your wedding.
When setting up your reception area for your wedding, consider using tables that are different sizes and shapes. This will help your reception area stand out to your guests. You can also use various table clothes of different colors. Having a unique reception area can be very memorable for your guests.
Treat yourself or another bride-to-be with a memorable, unique keepsake: a sculpted cake topper or paper sculpture of the bride’s wedding dress. Send in a detailed photograph of the bridal gown, and a talented mixed-media artist will replicate it using archival glue and acid-free paper. The creation will last for decades and can be easily displayed at the reception or in the home.
Between your ceremony and your reception there can be a long down-time for your guests. If they can’t be seated at their tables right away, choose a venue that has a bar or lounge available for them to hang out in while they wait for the guests of honor to arrive.
Do not let your bachelor or bachelorette party end too late at night. Many people are sleep deprived the day of their wedding because they stayed up too late the night before. You may even want to consider having your bachelor or bachelorette party the weekend prior to your wedding.
Perhaps enlist the help of a friend to help you to carry all your camera gear around. You can even have the assistant help you collect family members when it’s time to take a group shot!
When planning a destination wedding you should find out how many people are willing to attend. You may think only a few can afford to get there, but it might turn out that most of your family has money put away for a vacation and they’d like to use your wedding as the venue!
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.
It certainly can be tedious but it should not be unbearable. To make the most of your planning process you simply need to gain a little knowledge to relieve some of the pressures you may experience. You may even be able to enjoy the planning process once you know where to begin.
