Weddings can seem very overwhelming and planning them can be stressful. The thing about weddings is that you have to make sure you keep yourself informed and educated on any little thing that can make your wedding be as smooth as possible. Read on for some tips to help take the stress out of planning your wedding.
When you plan your wedding, be sure to think about cost effective alcohol options. 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.
Your wedding dress could be one of the most expensive items included in your wedding, but there are ways to save money on this purchase. Look at dresses that aren’t actually classified as wedding dresses. They are usually much less expensive but they can be just as beautiful. A simpler dress may suit your needs and will be less expensive than a typical wedding dress. You can choose to alter the dress and add your own flair, while still saving plenty of money.
The pictures you will have taken on your wedding day are meant to be a memento of your happy day for a lifetime. To ensure that your wedding day is documented properly, you should be prepared to spend some money on a professional, experienced photographer.
The most important part of your wedding is your future spouse, so be sure that you are ready to spend the rest of your life with them. This life-altering decision is one that should not be rushed into. Think about this person and what things will drive you crazy, along with what you can’t live without.
If you cannot justify the cost of a thousand-dollar wedding cake, consider contacting a local bakery and inquiring about single-serving portions, like cupcakes or cake pops. 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.
Your reception location should have a dance floor or room for dancing. You can make room by moving some chairs and tables around when it’s time to dance, just make sure you find enough space for people to get their groove on.
Brides who love fashion will perhaps want to add a dash of sparkle to their bouquet; think rhinestones, Swarovski crystals or even some diamonds. Add heat-fixed crystals or adhesive ones to your bouquet, or tie a piece of jewelery to it. To make sure it goes with your ensemble, remain consistent with the cut, size and colors of the sparkles.
