Getting married is a magical time, but can also be one of the most stressful events of your life. The planning that a successful wedding takes can be absolutely overwhelming. The suggestions given here are designed to help you reduce your stress and enjoy planning your special day.
One of the major things that impacts your wedding day and married life will be religion. Discuss all aspects of your religion with who you plan on marrying as well as their family too, just so they are comfortable with your beliefs.
If you have guests who are traveling to a destination wedding, make sure that you give them gift baskets at the hotel they are staying at. This will help to show the appreciation that you have for them for changing their plans and traveling to be a part of your festivities.
At your bridal party, try to make things as fun as possible with the people that you love. Have manicures and pedicures done to reward the people who made the biggest impact in your life. This will help to keep things casual as well, so that the mood is set for the party.
If you can’t have a limo for your wedding, dress up the cars you’re going in. Put on crepe paper flowers, streamers and whatever else the owner will let you dress it up with. It will make you feel like you have your own customized coach, so you don’t really need a limo anyway.
A week before your wedding hits, make sure that you try on your dress again so that you can make any last minute adjustments. If you were to put on extra weight or lose weight in the month leading up to your wedding, you will need to have this taken care of.
Be sure to have many drink options available at your wedding. Not everyone enjoys the same things and will be happier with a large selection to choose what type of drink they would like. When there is alcohol being consumed, be sure to keep hydrating drinks available, such as lemonade and tea.
The most important tool you can have in your wedding arsenal, is preparation. Make sure that your purse includes everything that you might need to fix a problems. You need to try to think of anything that can go wrong or that you may anticipate needing, such as a mirror, so that you can see if anything is stuck in your teeth, some lipstick, so that you can spruce yourself up, and maybe a couple bobby pins to calm down any unruly hair. Whatever you think you may need, try to keep it in your purse.
If you’re planning on having a buffet at your wedding reception, work out a plan to get the food moving quickly so that no guest is left waiting. Consider having multiple tables at different locations in your venue so that many tables can go up at one time, shortening the lines at each.
To ensure that you make it down the aisle with ease, be sure to try on your wedding shoes and wear them for one to two hours – at least twice – before the big day. This is especially important if you are unaccustomed to wearing heels, or if your feet are prone to swelling. It will also help you to decide if you need to add strap or heel cushions to your shoes to prevent blisters.
Most girls have the magical dream of getting married, since they were small. The planning can be overwhelming though. Hopefully, after you read this guide, you will have an easier time in handling and planning your own wedding and you will be able to breathe a little bit easier.
