Planning her own wedding is one of the most stressful events any woman will ever go through. The hardest part is choosing the perfect dress. It is a mistake for a woman to go try on dresses without some idea of what she likes. Another huge blunder is inviting the entire bridal party, all the mothers, and even the groom.
When sending out your wedding invitations, remember that it is your day, so avoid any person or combination of people that will ruin it in any way for you. It may be an insult to someone not to be invited, but if having them at your wedding will cause even the slightest of issues for you or your future spouse, it is really in your best interest to keep them off your guest list.
A week before your wedding hits, make sure that you try on your dress again so that you can make any last minute adjustments. If you were to put on extra weight or lose weight in the month leading up to your wedding, you will need to have this taken care of.
If you are having an outdoor wedding, check your wind speeds for that day. A windy day can ruin an outdoor wedding if not planned for. If it is going to be windy, avoid hairstyles that will be greatly affected by wind. You should also keep in mind that some tents are not designed to handle very windy conditions.
When planning your wedding, keep in mind the weather. You want your guests to be comfortable in your wedding, and it would be bad to having them overly hot or cold. If your wedding is when it is hot outside, consider giving out hand fans and cold bottles of water. If you are planning your wedding in colder weather, let your guests know that they should dress appropriately.
Do not starve just so your wedding dress fits. Like a fighter getting ready for a big fight, you will wind up light headed from dehydration by rushing to lose a little weight. You wouldn’t want to pass out. A good idea is to get a dress that has a corset back; this way, you can keep it on or take it off on your wedding day.
If you’re having trouble coming up with a gift for your wedding guests, think of something useful. My parents had matchbooks printed with their wedding date, which was great when they got married as no one knew smoking was bad yet. Today I might have a candle with a tag engraved the wedding date instead as it’s far more healthy for them to burn that!
If you are charging to photograph a wedding, make sure that all expectations are set before the big day. Find out what the couple are expecting to get at the end and what the cost will be. If you’re offering your services for free, then it’s just as important to find out what end product you’re being expected to deliver, and what it will cost you.
Your guests are likely to be hungry and tired after the ceremony, so why not provide them with snacks as they make their way to the reception? Have someone stand at the door with hors d’oeuvres on a tray and small glasses of something refreshing to drink. Your guests will greatly appreciate it!
On her wedding day, the bride is the focus of everybody’s attention. Wearing the dress she loves will fill her with confidence, making her even more beautiful on her day. Before trying on dresses, she needs to know what style she likes and what style flatters her body type. She should take one trusted and honest friend or family member to help.
