A wedding is easily one of the most memorable occasions in the human experience. The loving relationship at the core of a wedding has a great deal to do with its memorability, of course, but careful planning and hard work make a huge difference, too. Here are a few tips that can help make a wedding even more memorable:
When you are getting married, ask for help from family and friends, especially those who have gone through the wedding process before. They will help to offer you exceptional advice, as they have the experience that is necessary to give input on your decision. Tap into the heads of your loved ones for sound information.
When you are planning the attire for your bridesmaids, try to be as considerate as possible. Have them wear a dress that they can use again, To show that you care for them and are not in this for yourself. They will appreciate this, as their dress will not go to waste.
When planning for your wedding, the time of day could greatly affect your cost. If you are having an evening wedding, you will have to serve dinner which costs more than serving your guests lunch. If you serve alcohol, more people will drink heavily in the evening than they would at lunch time.
If you plan to serve your own food at the wedding, try shopping wholesale at places like Costco. If you shop at a wholesale store, you will get much more for your dollar than the regular supermarket. Try asking friends to split food costs.
Wedding pictures are a great way to commemorate an incredibly special day. Many couples look at them throughout their life. To ensure that your wedding day is documented properly, you should be prepared to spend some money on a professional, experienced photographer.
Consider visiting a local park or museum to have your wedding photos taken. It’s amazing to have a gorgeous background in your photographs, but sometimes your actual wedding location might not offer such a view. Contact your city’s government office to see if you’ll need a photography license for the location you choose.
When you walk down the aisle on the day of your wedding, make sure that you smile as often as possible. All eyes are going to be on you as you will want to look as happy and excited as possible in one of the biggest moments of your entire life.
An important component to your wedding is the invitations that you send out to your guests. Make sure that you make these as elegant as possible, as you want the invitations to represent how people see you and your future husband. Quality invitations will help to garner respect for your wedding.
I was at a wedding last year which seemed more like a circus. Not only did they have the typical events like bouquet tossing and garter removal, but they insisted on playing games throughout the night. Many guests won’t be expecting to have to compete at your reception, nor will they welcome the opportunity. Try to keep entertainment such as this to a minimum.
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.
Every wedding is special and unique – even more so than the two people whose union calls for the occasion. Many people contribute to a truly memorable wedding in ways great and small. This article offers just a few humble suggestions to assist the whole loving community of helpers that do their part to put together a great wedding.
