From the food, the expenses and the entertainment to a million other details, there is so much to do. Do yourself a favor and read on for some fabulous advice on making your wedding easier, less stressful and of course, one unforgettable party!
If you’re wearing a floor length wedding dress, you can get away with wearing less than fashionable shoes down the aisle. No one will see them and you’ll be more comfortable standing during your wedding ceremony. You can put more fashionable shoes on later for the reception where you’ll be sitting down.
Give your husband-to-be, some cuff links and a tie clip on the morning of your wedding, so he can match your jewelry. It looks great in photos, when there is a splash of sparkle and color on both of you and it will be very meaningful for him to know that you were thinking of him on your big day.
A beach wedding can be awesome, but ensure you have the proper footwear to make it through uninjured. You can find beautiful bedazzled bridal flip flops which will be far more comfortable for you on the sand while being inexpensive and attractive, too. You can keep them and reuse them to remember your special day!
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.
When picking out your bridesmaids dresses for your wedding, let your bridesmaids have some say in the decision. You want to make sure that they are comfortable in what they wear on your big day! Plus, having them help to make the decision can take some of the pressure off of you.
When selecting a limousine company to use for your wedding, look for a company that charges by the day, rather than the hour. Hourly rates tend to be much more expensive than companies that charge for the whole day. Also, do not reserve more limousines than what you will need.
Put people at your wedding together in tables of people who have similar interests, hobbies, or careers. That will give them something to talk about while they enjoy their meal at the reception, and reduces any awkward feelings for your guests. You want the day to be perfect and special for everyone in attendance!
When you have decided on a florist, instead of giving them a specific type of flower to stick to, decide on a color scheme to fit the theme of your wedding. This will provide your florist with more flexibility, which will help to exude a more elegant feel to your wedding.
Do not expect to please everybody with the choices you will be making. This day is for you, and it is based on what you like. Do not let anyone who may criticize get you down or make you change your mind. Do what really makes you happy because you will remember this day for a longer time then anyone else will.
