Is the gargantuan task of planning your wedding getting you down? Are you considering scrapping your wedding plans, and simply eloping instead? It can be extremely stressful to plan a wedding; however, there are a number of steps you can take to reduce the stress. The following article will go over some advice to help make wedding planning a lot less frustrating on you.
For a more affordable wedding, consider setting a date outside the traditional season for weddings. The wedding season is traditionally from May through September. Wedding venues are more expensive during this time. If you want to book your wedding at those times, make sure you are booking far enough in advance so you get a great deal.
Use the property of someone you know. If someone you know has a nice backyard or a large farm, this can save a lot of money. Saving money on the venue will allow you to hire people to set up and clean up.
Pick a reasonable dress that you won’t have to starve to get into. Like a mixed martial arts fighter preparing for a fight, you will end up dehydrated and light-headed if you try to rush losing weight. You would hate to faint while standing at the altar. Choosing a dress in the correct size that fits you well will help avoid your dress feeling a little tight on the big day.
Don’t forget about the transportation on your wedding day. Some guests might need a ride to their hotel, so make sure there are taxis available (at minimum). Transportation is also helpful for those who have drank too much at your wedding.
While you should always let your DJ know what songs you want played for your reception, it is just as important to alert him to any songs you do not like or want played. Find a song that you enjoyed in the past. No matter what you don’t want to hear, tell your DJ.
For any stylish and fashion forward bride, there is always the option to add some flare to a bouquet with a splash of diamonds, rhinestones or Swarovski crystals. You can add some crystals that have been glued on, some costume jewelery, or an heirloom of your own. Make sure it goes with your dress and accessories, and that the color, cut, and size of the stones compliment your ensemble.
Sweet cupcakes are great alternatives to an expensive cake. These arrangements are convenient and affordable. Guests can even take a cupcake home.
If you are having a destination wedding, why not treat your guests with an indulgent gift basket delivered right to their hotel rooms? You can include tidbits like tourist maps, sunglasses, novelty towels or even information on nearby attractions. Another nice gesture is to include a restaurant guide, since people do need to eat after all.
Don’t let wedding planning get you down! You may have a lot to worry about, but the advice in this article will make the work you have to do much easier to manage. Soon, you’ll be able to stop stressing about your wedding, and start looking forward to your big day instead.
