How to Prepare For Your Wedding Day
Brides, you have much to consider when preparing for your wedding. The process can be overwhelming. Below is the insight to ensure your wedding runs smoothly.
Ensure that your wedding invitations are as elegant as possible, as you want the invitations to represent how people see you and your future husband. Quality invitations will set the tone regarding your wedding.
Adding items to your wedding gift registry can be overwhelming, especially if you register at a large department store. Don’t be afraid to make multiple appointments, rather than trying to build your entire registry in a single day. This approach keeps the process fun and stress-free. For instance, focus on kitchen items one day, then bathroom goods another day, then items for the bedroom on yet another day.
When coordinating the attire for your bridesmaid’s dresses, try to be as considerate and logical as possible. Have them wear clothing that will be suitable for another occasion. Undoubtedly, they will appreciate this gesture and creative idea.
Ensure everything that both your dress and jewelry is professionally cleaned by cleaners you trust.
For a unique spin on the traditional wedding guest book, use clothespins to affix blank heavyweight over-size gift tags to a floral garland, hemp rope, or line of pennants. Mount the line over a table near the entryway and provide various pens and markers in bright colors. Guests can write messages of hope and blessings for the new couple, then pin them back on the rope.
Wedding On A Budget
If you are concerned about your overall budget, consider having your wedding during the winter on a Friday or a Sunday. Wedding venues and hotels have the highest rates during spring, summer, and fall on Saturdays since these are the most in-demand times for weddings.
A dozen large, elaborate floral centerpieces can set a bride back hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. Save money by opting for floral pots filled with fresh garden herbs like lavender, thyme, and rosemary. Fresh-cut green herbs will fill the reception site with a clean, crisp fragrance. Sprigs of herbs are also an affordable way to add volume to floral centerpieces.
If you plan a tropical destination wedding or honeymoon on the beach, opt for inexpensive sandals with a thin rattan or jelly sole. These shoes can be easily embellished to match your bridal gown or beach attire by adding on ribbons.
Buying wedding gowns online can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. However, know that you most likely will still need alterations. Still, the money you will save from buying your gown online will outweigh the alterations’ cost.
What To Do Before Your Wedding
Practice your walk down the aisle in a mirror if possible. If you fear turning your ankle awkwardly, think of wearing flats instead of heels. It’s a pretty simple exchange to ensure you won’t fall as all eyes are on you during your all-important walk down the aisle.
Ensure that whoever you select as your maid or matron of honor is highly focused, likable, most also highly responsible. This individual must manage the bridesmaids and delegate responsibilities while also maintaining likability and social grace. A great maid or matron of honor will take the stress away from you and allow you to enjoy the wedding planning process as well as on your special day.
Never plan your bachelorette party the day and night before your wedding. There may be a lot of drinking at these parties, and the last thing that you will want to do is ruin the day of your wedding because you are not fully functional. Have a calm and relaxing day before your wedding.
Deciding On Your Wedding Menu
Think about filling a menu with popular choices in a contemporary fusion style. Add a twist by using ethnic drinks, wedding favors, or dessert options.
If you are health conscious, opt for gluten-free wedding cakes, appetizers, and refreshments. Instead of sweets loaded with wheat, many bakeries now offer options that are entirely free of gluten. These cakes, cookies, and edible favors include ingredients like potato flour to bake delicious, light, and healthy treats that everyone enjoys.
If possible, start your wedding planning a year in advance. Otherwise, you may find the venue that you want might not be available. Besides, the best vendors get booked in advance. Don’t wait too long, and take action well in advance to guarantee you receive the venue you desire as well as the vendors at the top of your list.
Consider hiring a wedding band instead of a wedding DJ for your wedding reception. Bands can often be the highlight of your reception entertainment, and the type of music they can play will keep the dance floor packed. There is no substitution for great live music!
