Wedding planning is notorious for the required energy, work and time. There are many choices to be made, many things to pay for and lots of people to include. Use the following advice to make sure that you are able to plan your wedding in a successful fashion.
Online wedding gown purchases can be easy on your wallet, but give yourself enough time for alterations as needed. Even though a gown can be fairly cheap, having it altered to fit your perfectly can sometimes be more costly. Make sure you consider this cost in your wedding budget.
Pick a reasonable dress that you won’t have to starve to get into. Just like an athlete who is training, starving yourself could cause dehydration. You don’t want to faint as you’re saying your I do’s! 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.
Be sure to browse around for experienced and skilled photographers, before you commit to one for your wedding. You wouldn’t want bad wedding pictures. For good local photographers, look at online reviews or ask loved ones for recommendations.
You can include some embellishments in your bouquet of flowers including rhinestones or Swarovski crystals! This can be achieved through heat-fixed crystals, adding a little piece of jewelry or even using an heirloom piece. To ensure that it coordinates with the rest of your ensemble, be consistent in terms of sparkling colors, cut, and size of the stones.
Avoid having your guests standing around waiting while you have your pictures taken. Get as many pictures as possible before the ceremony. You can also take pictures with both newlyweds’ families at this time.
If you have a destination wedding, offer a basket full of goodies delivered to guests in their rooms. You will want to include useful items such as a disposable camera, tourist map that shows fun places in the local area, sunglasses and a hat. Another nice gesture is to include a restaurant guide, since people do need to eat after all.
The lighting at the venue hosting your wedding’s reception should be able to be dimmed. You may not think this detail is important; however, consider the effect of low lights on parts of your reception. For example, you may want to dim the lights for your first dance or other important dances and brighten them when you want everyone to participate in dancing. Ask the folks running your venue if you have that option.
