Your wedding needs to be the most perfect, memorable day of your life so you need to plan and prepare for it! With so much to do and so much to remember, you need all the help you can get so read on for expert advice, tips and tricks to make the ordeal of organizing your wedding just a little bit easier!
If you’re wearing a floor length wedding dress, you can get away with wearing less than fashionable shoes down the aisle. No one will see them and you’ll be more comfortable standing during your wedding ceremony. You can put more fashionable shoes on later for the reception where you’ll be sitting down.
If you’re having trouble coming up with a gift for your wedding guests, think of something useful. My parents had matchbooks printed with their wedding date, which was great when they got married as no one knew smoking was bad yet. Today I might have a candle with a tag engraved the wedding date instead as it’s far more healthy for them to burn that!
Make sure that after your wedding you send thank-you notes to all of your guests for not only coming to your wedding but for the gifts that they gave to you. This will make them feel special and show that you appreciated them using their time to share your special moment.
Bridal fashion changes drastically from year to year. Unless you are set on spending the money and storage space necessary to preserve and keep your wedding dress, consider renting a gown instead. Most formal wear rental companies are very reasonable in price and policies, and you can wear the expensive designer dress of your dreams for pennies compared to buying it for a one-time wearing.
If your heart is set on a destination wedding, talk to a travel agent to see if you can get a deal for everyone who is attending at a group rate. They are likely to have planned many wedding trips before yours, and will know exactly how to get the best deals possible.
It is important that you find out how many people can fit into the venue where you are going to have your wedding reception. Many times, people pick a venue that does not have enough room for all of their guests, which then creates an array of unnecessary problems. Also, do not forget how many hours that you have rented the venue for.
Leave a gift for out-of-town guests in their room as a thank you for coming so far to attend your wedding. A nice basket of snacks, like crackers, fresh fruit, and drinks, will give them something welcoming to enjoy while they are away from home. Another excellent choice would be a gift card for a local restaurant!
Your head is probably still spinning from all the invitations you need to order and send out, the foods you need to select, the people you need to hire and of course, there is the little matter of your wedding dress! Hopefully this article has enlightened you a better, faster and simpler ways of getting all these things done so you can find more time to enjoy this momentous occasion!
