There is not a woman alive who has not pictured her ideal wedding and taken mental notes on how she wants it to really be. They, as do you, want it all to be perfect and dive right into the process which can be a daunting task without a little help.
Consider getting married outside of wedding season. That may means having a wedding in a less popular month or on a weekday, but the savings can be significant. Wedding venues are costly during these months. If you need to book during this time, make sure you book far in advance to get the best deal.
When you decide who you want to give the speeches during the reception, ask them to read them to you so you know they are appropriate. If there are going to be different generations there, you don’t want to offend anyone.
Have your wedding at a friend’s home. If someone you know has a large yard or farm, you can get rid of a big wedding expense. Try paying someone to come out in advance and after your event to clean the place for the only location-based cost.
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. Some specialty bakeries also ship fresh, low-cal cupcakes and healthy fare, like gluten-free options if you so desire.
Check your wedding venue to emsure that there will be enough room for a dance floor. You won’t have as much fun dancing if the space is too tight. Consider removing unneeded tables and chairs before your reception begins so that there will be more room to dance.
Practice your walk in front of mirrors to feel comfortable on your wedding day. Go with flats if you’re worried about twisting an ankle. Footwear that’s not so sexy is preferable to falling on your bottom on your wedding day!
Rather than spend a bunch of money on a huge cake, you may want to opt for a few tiers of great cupcakes or small tarts. These arrangements are more convenient, versatile, and more cost effective. Guests can even take a cupcake home.
As you can see, planning your wedding doesn’t have to completely stress you out. You’re going to find enjoyment with the planning all the way to the big day!
