Most couples put a huge effort into the planning of their wedding. When you it comes time to plan your own, use these tips below.
Religion is most likely going to be a significant factor in not only your wedding, but your future marriage. It may help to discuss this with your families so that they understand how you plan on handling dual faiths in your marriage.
For a more affordable wedding, consider setting a date outside the traditional season for weddings. This would be sometime that is not between May and September. Venues tend to be pricier during these months. If you can’t plan your wedding at any other time, book your venue as soon as possible to get a great deal.
If you prefer to handle the refreshments and foods on your own, save money by shopping at wholesalers, such as Sam’s Club and Costco. If you shop wholesale, you will be able to get lots of food at much better prices. Ask friends to help on food, too.
Do not starve yourself just to fit into the wedding dress you want. Like a fighter getting ready for a big fight, you will wind up light headed from dehydration by rushing to lose a little weight. The last thing you need is to pass out as the vows are being given. You would do better to choose a dress that has a corset back, as this allows you to adjust the fit with out the need for tailoring.
A thoughtful gift for destination wedding guests to receive is a basket of vacation goodies delivered to them in their room. Include useful items like sunglasses, a hat, tourist map, pamphlets and a disposable camera. It may also be nice to give them a guide to a restaurant in the area so they have an easier time finding a place to get food.
One way to help remain in budget is to search Craigslist for items or services needed for your wedding. Before you hand over any money, both bride and groom should meet with them ahead of time, in person.
If you want a small Las Vegas wedding, do whatever makes you happy. However, if you would prefer a traditional wedding, the wedding-oriented tips featured above should help you to plan a magical day, that you will remember forever.
