As long as your wedding has two people in love and an officiator to make things legal, your day is complete. Everything else is not needed. They are added extras that make the day even more delightful, but they are definitely not necessities. The piece that follows offers help for keeping your perspective and really enjoying your wedding.
When planning a wedding, alcohol needs to be a consideration as to what type you want to serve, as well as what the costs are going to be. An open bar can be very expensive over a long time period. Speak with the people at the venue about any alcohol serving options.
Don’t forget about the transportation on your wedding day. For people without a ride, be sure a taxi or limo can bring them to their destination after the reception. This is a great idea for people who drink.
If the idea of a thousand-dollar, thousand-calorie wedding cake leaves you with cold feet, contact local boutiques and specialty bakeries and ask about smaller, individual-sized portions. Some bakeries will even ship fresh cupcakes with fewer than 100 calories per serving as well as healthy options like gluten-free ingredients, fruit-filling instead of frosting, no-calorie sweeteners, or even tart meringue toppings.
Look around before committing to a photographer. You want to make sure the quality of the pictures you get is exactly what you expect. Check online reviews or ask your family members for recommendations on a good photographer where you live.
Check your wedding venue to emsure that there will be enough room for a dance floor. Nothing is worse than a tiny, crowded dance floor where there is no room to move around. To make the dance floor larger, clear out some chairs and tables.
Practice going down the aisle while wearing the shoes you are going to wear at the wedding. If you’re scared of turning your ankle, go with attractive flats instead. Not having fancy heels is much easier to deal with than falling on your butt.
In conclusion, only very few things are necessary to have an ideal wedding. Many things available for weddings are optional or extra upgrades. These things can be a nice addition, but they also add unnecessary stress that takes focus away from happiness this day entails. You can’t make everyone happy so focus on pleasing yourself and your groom.
