Making Memories: Tips For Planning Your Wedding Day
It can be easily said that organizing a wedding is a challenge, filled with options and compromises. In order to make the process a little more manageable, consider these helpful pointers and ensure that your big day will be one to remember forever.
You can get a better rate on almost any venue by booking during an off period. The wedding season traditionally begins in May lasting through September. Wedding venues are more expensive during these months. If you must book a space in these months, be certain to book way ahead of time to get a reasonable deal.
When you're planning your wedding festivities, think hard about the kinds of alcoholic beverages that are going to be available. Also how much of a price tag they'll carry. If there’s a bar that’s open, it can be expensive, especially the longer it’s open. Ask the venue you’ve chosen for the reception which options they've available to you. What the cost would be for each.
If there will be toasts or speeches given at your wedding reception, ask the speakers to practice in front of you to ensure that the material is appropriate for those attending your wedding. For example, you'd want to eliminate any jokes that apply to a very specific group within your guests in order to avoid anyone feeling excluded and to make sure the speech is well-received by all who attend your wedding.
Choose ethnic catering to spice things up. Your typical chicken and steak dishes are too common. Why not try some other food choices? Variety is essential to a wedding dinner to make it memorable for all the right reasons.
Never go on a strenuous weight loss diet in order to look your best. Like a fighter getting ready for a big fight, you'll wind up light headed from dehydration by rushing to lose a little weight. You don’t need to faint during the ceremony. Instead, buy a dress with a corset back so you can take it in or out as necessary on the day of your vows.
If you need to look great on your wedding day but money is a bit tight, then considering renting rather than buying any diamonds used in the wedding. In this way, you'll be able to wear gorgeous jewels at a nominal cost.
When you're choosing a makeup artist for your ceremony, always look at samples of their previous work. Evaluate the makeup artist’s techniques. Be sure that it's exactly what you want. You don’t want your makeup to be wrong on the day of the wedding when you can’t fix it.
