Planning your wedding is no small task, so people often get lost in all the details when trying to make things memorable and enjoyable. Keep reading for some tips on how to make this job easier on yourself. It’s not as difficult as you imagine.
When you decide who you want to give the speeches during the reception, ask them to read them to you so you know they are appropriate. Remember that you’ll have people there from all generations, so keep the jokes appropriate.
Go ethnic with your catering and get your guests talking for days to come. Steak or chicken are over-served and boring, so why not include a variety of food in your food choices? Variety is important and will make the dinner memorable.
Don’t make your guests wait while you take all of your photos. Pictures of the bride, groom, bridesmaids and groomsmen can be snapped in advance. Even pictures with parents can be shot in advance, reducing the time that guests must wait for you to arrive at your reception.
A midday reception may be the perfect way to cut costs at your wedding. Doing this, people will likely drink far less alcohol and keep your bar tab lighter. Also, lunch receptions will typically be cheaper than dinner receptions and allow you to either increase the quality of food or allocate the rest of your food and alcohol budget to another need for the wedding.
Rent a venue, with lights that are capable of being dimmed, for your wedding reception. Although this may seem trivial, you want the option of having a low-light setting during your first dance and a more brighter setting for the rest of the celebration. Talk to the venue owner about the light settings. Don’t rent a venue that doesn’t have the settings you want.
