Most people put much time and work into planning the perfect wedding. So, when you need to plan yours, make sure you check out some of these great wedding-oriented tips in the text below.
As your wedding day approaches, practice walking down the aisle as many times as practicable. Do it at the venue in which you are getting married, and wear the footwear you’re going to wear on the big day. It can also better the flow when the actual wedding takes place.
Be sure to browse around for experienced and skilled photographers, before you commit to one for your wedding. You never want a photographer who is unlikely to make you happy in the end. It is smart to look online for user reviews of photographers or seek personal recommendations from those you trust.
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 use small pieces of costume jewelry, heat-fixed or adhesive crystals, or perhaps a treasured heirloom. Make sure that the stones of your choice coordinate well with your ensemble; have consistency in your arrangement of colors, size and cut.
Don’t make guests wait as you take photos. These photos should be taken in advance. Also, pictures of the couple with their parents can be taken in advance; this reduces the waiting time for guests coming to the reception.
Make sure the lights at your reception venue have dimmer switches. You will probably want to lower the lights for your first dance, but have brighter lights during most of the reception. Be sure to find out about these details before you decide for sure.
Share an online itinerary with your guests, especially the out-of-town ones, so that everyone can plan their schedules in advance. It is important that you let people know about events, such as the rehearsal they need to attend; this ensures that they show up at the appropriate time, when they’re needed.
An ordained relative or friend can step in to officiate your wedding. This ordination can take place quickly and easily online. Your ceremony will have a more personal tone, and you can save money by not needing to hire an officiant. Make sure that this is something that is legal where you live.
There’s nothing wrong with a simple, low key, Vegas type wedding, if that’s what you want. If you are going to get married in a church ceremony with lots of people, however, the advice above may just help you get everything right, without going through a lot of hassle.
