Would you like to have your wedding in the summer or winter? Do you go with traditional roses or buck tradition? A lot of thought goes into wedding planning. There are hundreds of small decisions you need to make. Whether you are part of the couple that is tying the knot, or just a support person involved in the wedding planning, the tips you are about to read will help you plan an event that is free of problems.
You may be able to save money on your wedding by planning it during an “off season”. The wedding season is traditionally from May through September. At this time, it will be more costly to book a venue for your wedding. If you need to book during this time, make sure you book far in advance to get the best deal.
Alcohol can be a big expense at a wedding, so consider limiting the types of drinks and opt for cost efficient choices. The open bar option is the most costly of choices and the cost can be prohibitive for many couples but do not feel bad if you cannot afford it. Ask the venue about their various alcohol service options.
Getting married soon? Don’t even think about crash dieting to fit into your dress. This will only make you lightheaded and dehydrating, and it could even make you ill. Passing out at the altar in the middle of exchanging vows? Not a pleasant thought. Get a dress that has a corset-like back that is removable.
Incorporate small decorative elements into all your wedding decorations. Maybe choose the tiny crystals from your veil to also be sprinkled on the tables. These details will help your wedding seem perfect, and will show that you have thought about making this day special.
You do not have to get a wedding cake that is filled with countless calories. There are some bakers who are able to prepare delicious and beautiful cakes that are individually sized to be just enough to give someone the cake they want without the calories they do not want. Some bakeries are able to make healthier cupcakes that contain less than 100 calories in each serving providing you with healthier options such as fruit- fillings in replacement to frosting, calorie-free sweeteners and gluten-free ingredients.
A nice present to give to your wedding guests at a wedding in a different town is a gift basket full of vacation items that you can have sent to their room. Some useful items to include might be tourist information, sun hats, sunglasses, disposable cameras, maps of the area, sunscreen, and so on. To make it easier for them to find good dining, a local restaurant guide is certainly helpful.
After reading these tips, it’s safe to say that you probably weren’t aware of even half of these ideas. And that’s because no one ever realizes just how much goes into planning a wedding until they’re actually staring at it in the face. A wedding is perhaps the most detail-oriented celebration out there, so be sure that you’re using these tips to help you out.
