Solid Tips For Wedding Planning
Most little girls dream of their wedding from a young age. The dress, the venue and the catering, everything has to be just so. The reality is that no matter the size of the budget or the number of the guests, whether it is formal or informal, weddings are a stressful affair. Here are some tips on how to preserve your sanity while organizing for your big day.
If you have a large bridal party, when it comes time to selecting the bridesmaids dresses, it is a great idea to let each bridesmaids pick the style of the dress that looks the best on their body type, but still is the same color as you designate for the wedding theme.
Make your own table decorations and centerpieces for your wedding to help you save money. Consider creating these items in filled hurricane jars and use handmade paper or felt flowers, strings of simple white lights, inexpensive tea lights, or ingredients from nature like twigs, branches, leaves and wildflowers.
Think about which effects windy weather could have on your outdoor reception. Avoid any light fabrics and complex hairstyles. Find solid tents that will stand in case of wind. Let everybody know that the location might be windy: give them advice about clothes and hairstyle that will not look bad when the wind blows.
Not planning for little children can be a very big wedding planning error. If you have many little children coming, you can almost guarantee that there will be noise. Children can also be unruly. When planning your wedding, you should have a reserved area just for the children with activities that they can engage in to keep themselves preoccupied.
Don’t be afraid to use any kind of music you want for the reception. You don’t have to set aside the music you like when you are planning your wedding. It doesn’t have to be a dance party. If you like Indie music or if you like head-banging to heavy metal, then go for it!
Use silk flowers instead of real flowers for the arrangements and bouquets. Silk flowers cost less than real flowers, last forever and don’t aggravate allergies. Silk will hold up better in hot weather as well. Compare costs and arrangements of both silk and real flowers and see which suits you better.
On the morning of your wedding, you will have to give yourself extra time to get dressed since you will want everything to look perfect. Plan to start getting ready at least an hour before you usually would to avoid rushing to get to your wedding. This will allow you to look your best.
If your country or state will not let you get married because of your sexual orientation, you should look into getting married abroad or into another state. You can easily find support groups that will help you find the right place to get married, and advise you in the process of getting a marriage license.
These ideas should help you to have the day you have always dreamed of. Do try to remember that at the end of the day, the most important thing about a wedding is the act of exchanging your vows with the person you love and every other little detail is that, merely a detail.
