If there will be speeches, then be sure to censor the content to make them appropriate. Remember that your guests will include people across a wide range of ages, and a joke that younger generations find amusing might be offensive to older guests.
It is important to get high quality wedding photos so that you can truly cherish them throughout your life and hand them down to your descendants. Hire a professional. Don’t be shy on spending money in this area as they can document this magical day to perfection.
If you do not want a traditional wedding cake, consider individual-sized cakes. There are boutiques that will bake fresh cupcakes with very few calories specifically for your event, and deliver them. These boutiques also often have healthy options available such as gluten-free, fruit based fillings instead of frosting, and healthier alternative toppings.

Make sure your wedding reception lighting can be dimmed at the venue. This might seem like a trivial detail, but you want to be able to lower the light for your first romantic dance as a married couple and increase the lighting for other moments of the reception. Inquire about the lighting with the venue, prior to signing any contracts.
As mentioned, a wedding represents the bond between to people, not how fancy the wedding decorations are. Your wedding should be an event that showcases your love. Use the advice in this article, and enjoy the day with your guests.
