When you are marrying someone, it is important to work as a team when it comes time to plan your wedding. Try to optimize your decisions by coming to a compromise on the disagreements that you have so that you can both be as happy as possible when your big day comes.
One of the things that you should consider for your guests is to serve white wine instead of red wine as the drinks at your wedding. Most people will be wearing dresses that have light colors, so you will want to limit the visibility of stains if they were to have an accident.
On the day of the wedding, send a nice text to your groom or bride to tell them that you love them, and they are the most important person in your life. This will help them feel reassured that they are making the right decision and will help to relieve their stress.
When choosing a makeup artist, look at their past work. Evaluate the makeup artist’s techniques. Consider doing a trial run before the big day. You don’t need to be around an hour before the wedding stuck with a makeup artist that did a poor job.
Try to use a limousine driver that you know and trust so that you do not have to get worried on the day of your wedding. Make sure that he shows up in advance and pay him the extra hour to sit and wait for you. This will ensure that you arrive on time.
When you are planning for the wedding, make sure that both sides have an equal contribution. If you disagree on how something should be, try to compromise as best as possible. This will help you to form a vital skill that you will need a lot when you get married.
If you are getting married, and you do not know how to dance, you may want to consider taking dance lessons. All eyes are going to be on you during the reception, especially during the first dance, and you want to make sure that you leave a good impression on your guests.
For an intimate atmosphere that encourages guests to mingle and interact with each other, consider long tables with benches instead of multiple round tables. This helps to create a more natural pattern of communication and invite shared conversations. This arrangement can also cut down on the costs of paying for multiple floral arrangements for each table.
When choosing children who will be in your wedding, begin with four and up. Younger children than this may not have the patience, maturity or understanding of their role in your ceremony. Every case is different and you must weigh personality over age, however, age can play an important role in the success of the child in the wedding.
If children are attending, make sure they are dressed comfortably. Choose softer fabrics that fit loose enough to prevent discomfort. If the children are going to be wearing new shoes, make sure they are comfortable, and let them walk around in them a bit so that they can get broken in. With an entire ensemble of comfortable clothes, the children can put their energy into their designated roles and leave the outfits alone.
If you don’t want to spend a great deal on the wedding, be sure to create a budget before you get started. It is easy to get lost in purchasing items for a wedding as it is an exciting event. If you don’t set your budget first, you could suffer in the end when you find you were a bit more frivolous than you wanted to be.
Ask the parents of the flower girl and/or ring bearer to get the children to bed early the night before the ceremony or try to give them a nap during the day for an evening wedding. Well-rested children are much more attentive and carry a longer attention span for things than children who may be irritable from a lack of sleep.
Save money on expensive floral arrangements and centerpieces by creating a more relaxed, informal, tea party-inspired reception area or wedding breakfast. Think delicate: small, dainty, fragrant pink and yellow rosebuds, affordable carnations, and tiny daisies. You can use vintage teacups and place settings to complete the look. Instead of a large, tiered cake, inquire about sweet, perfectly portioned petit fors.
Instead of heavy room fragrances, candles, and oil diffusers, you can carefully select flowers and herbs to create a more natural, earthy aroma for your venue. Citrus-esque scents, such as those of mimosas, lemon verbena, and waxflower, are ideal for daytime weddings that are held in summery locations or tropical oceanfront settings.
If you can afford it, try to take some dance lessons before the wedding. Things can get really hectic right before the event and it is nice to have a little time set aside where you can do something together. Plus, the dance lessons well help you feel more comfortable on your wedding day.
As previously mentioned, the fairy tale wedding doesn’t really happen. Every wedding has it’s unexpected disasters and the best thing to do is accept they will happen and don’t stress about it. By putting a proper attitude in your wedding plans, you can make your wedding day a whole lot happier.
