When you’re planning a wedding, there are a lot of things to juggle. It can be a tough task even with the help of friends, family and experienced wedding planners. Here are some great tips to make sure you feel confident about every aspect of your wedding, from the centerpieces to the rental fees.
An excellent way to save money on your wedding is not paying for a photographer. That doesn’t mean you can’t have video and still photos, it just means you need to be creative! Ask the best photographer in your family to do the photography for you, and then drop some hints that it would be great to get a photo album as a wedding gift. It worked for me!
One of the things that you should try to implement is a day of rest after your wedding. This will give you the time that you need to recover, both from a mental and physical standpoint. After resting this day, you will be able to have an energetic and lovely honeymoon.
If you don’t think your wedding guests will participate in a traditional part of the wedding, then skip it. If no one likes to dance, especially the bride or groom, then don’t force them to. If you’re only having married women in attendance, don’t have a bouquet toss at all.
Brides can treat members of the wedding party with handmade fashion emergency kits as a way of saying “thank you” to their bridesmaids and maid of honor. Include quick fixes like heel cushions, fashion tape, bobby pins, and strap strips for strappy heels, sandals, and pumps. Your bridesmaids will be able to strut down the aisle in comfort and style.
Consider creating a gift registry at your favorite store when you are getting married. Many time, guests will buy the couple gifts that they never or rarely use. By creating a gift registry, your guests can get you and your spouse gifts that you personally want and will actually get use out of.
Save-the-date notices, wedding invitations, and response envelopes are a new couple’s first opportunity to share their big news with their friends and loved ones. Make yours memorable by incorporating three-dimensional elements whenever possible. This effect can be achieved using ribbons, adhesives, sequins, or elegant and textured fine papers in classic colors.
The worst thing that can come out of a wedding is a huge debt. Don’t overlook your budget when choosing items for your big day. If you are cash-strapped, look for savings like having your family cater the event or do all the photography. At worst you can ask for cash in lieu of gifts to help offset the costs.
Hopefully, these tips have given you some peace of mind and helped boost your confidence in your ability to plan your wedding with common sense as well as style. The more you know about how to plan a wedding properly, the more energy you’ll have to make sure every single detail is absolutely perfect.
