Your wedding day is something you have looked forward to since you were a little girl. Now that it’s time to plan for the big day, it can be hard to decide what kind of venue is right for you. This article will give you some tips that you can use, so that you can have the perfect wedding day that you have always dreamed of.
Keep your outdoor wedding decorations simple, at all costs. You will want to be the central of your wedding and too many decorations can take away from this. Keep your decorations very neat and ornate, but make sure not to go overboard, in order to allow your guests to maximize their experience.
A few days before your wedding, get all of the jewelry that you are planning to wear professionally cleaned. This will help you to sparkle more as you are walking down the aisle, illuminating the beauty that you possess. Find a great jewelry cleaner and improve the quality of your stones before the wedding.
Get to bed very early on the night before your wedding. This will allow you to be as rested as possible and will help to reduce the levels of stress that you will feel from pure exhaustion. Getting a good night of sleep on the day before your wedding will maximize your experience.
On the morning of your wedding, you will have to give yourself extra time to get dressed since you will want everything to look perfect. Plan to start getting ready at least an hour before you usually would to avoid rushing to get to your wedding. This will allow you to look your best.
Make your wedding child-friendly. Chances are you’ve invited some guests who are going to bring their kids, and it will only benefit you to make some small accommodations that will keep them happy. Have the caterer to bring some kid-friendly cuisine and supply a few little parties favors to keep the children busy and well behaved on your special day.
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.
If you are attending a wedding, make sure to bring a gift or a card and arrive on time. Once the processional has started, you won’t be able to be seated until after it has finished, and unless you are a close personal friend, it may be awkward to have you standing in the foyer watching the bridal party as they prepare to walk down the aisle.
“Destination” wedding guests will appreciate a thoughtful gift of vacation items awaiting them in their rooms. Have items in them like disposable cameras, hats, sunglasses and tourist maps of the exciting places that they can visit. Additionally, you may want to include a local restaurant guide so that your guests know where to eat.
If you can afford it, consider a cruise ship wedding, inviting only close family and friends. This would make the honeymoon begin immediately following the ceremony. A lot of cruise companies will give you a great rate if you’re getting married and want to have a honeymoon on the ship.
As stated at the beginning of the article, it can be hard to decide what kind of wedding venue is right for you. It is your special day and of course, you want it to be perfect. Hopefully, this article has given you some great ideas, so that you can have the wedding of your dreams.
