Is the prospect of planning a wedding overwhelming you? Do you just want to head over to Vegas and get married in one of those drive-through chapels? Planning your wedding is naturally stressful but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Here are some ideas to bring the joy back to your wedding.
As your wedding day approaches, practice walking down the aisle as many times as practicable. If possible, practice your aisle walk at the site where your wedding will be. This will give you an opportunity to practice on the actual floor using the shoes you will be wearing on your wedding day. Doing so helps to ensure a smooth and confident walk when your wedding day comes.
One thing to take into consideration is when you get married. The off seasons can save quite a bit of money that can be used elsewhere. The wedding season runs from May until September. At this time, it will be more costly to book a venue for your wedding. If you need to book during this time, make sure you book far in advance to get the best deal.
Are you bringing in food yourself to your reception? Visit a wholesale store to stock up. If you’re shopping wholesale, you are able to get a lot of food for less money than shopping retail. It is acceptable to ask others to assist with these costs in lieu of gifts if finances are tight and you do not want to run out of food at the reception.
Purchasing a wedding dress can be expensive. To help defray the cost of a wedding gown, you may wish to shop for dresses that may not be considered a wedding dress. A bridesmaid dress might strike your fancy as an option, and it would be cheaper than a dress designated for the bride. Even after some alterations to spruce it up, it can still prove a more affordable alternative to a dress that says wedding on the label.
Don’t starve yourself silly just to fit in a wedding dress. Not eating any food can leave you feeling dehydrated and lethargic on your big day. Passing out at the altar in the middle of exchanging vows? Not a pleasant thought. You can always choose a dress that utilizes a corset so that you are able to take your dress in for the moment.
If you cringe at the thought of purchasing an extremely expensive yet incredibly unhealthy wedding cake, there are other options available. You should consider getting in touch with local bakeries and specialty boutiques to inquire about individual portions that are healthier. You may be able to find a bakery willing to provide freshly-baked cupcakes that are low-calorie and available in healthier options for family with special dietary needs such as gluten or sugar-free.
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.
