Most people think of every detail of our wedding from childhood. The hairstyle we will have, the dress we will wear and how our bouquet will look are just some things we think about. Planning a wedding, while exciting, can be overwhelming without proper guidance.
Marriages between people of different faiths are common nowadays, but it helps to discuss how this will affect your marriage, in-laws and children, before you marry. Make time to talk to your fiance and their family about their religion.
For a more reasonably priced wedding, consider a date that’s not in the traditional wedding season. Most weddings take place between May and September. Wedding venues are more expensive during these months. If you still want to have your wedding during this time, be sure to make all your arrangements well in advance so you receive the best possible deal.
If you plan on doing the catering yourself, then you need to visit wholesale food stores. You’ll get better deals on large quantities of food if you shop wholesale. See if your friends can chip in for food costs.
Wedding dresses are not cheap. When you are browsing through dress shops, remember to look a dresses that are not officially categorized as wedding dresses. You might find a great bridesmaid dress or simply a classy outfit that you like. Remember, the dress you chose can be altered to change the styling, and the total cost will still probably be less than the cost of purchasing an official wedding dress.
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. For example, you would want to eliminate any jokes that apply to a very specific group within your guests in order to avoid anyone feeling excluded and to make sure the speech is well-received by all who attend your wedding.
Proper planning can ease the stress of a wedding. After all, the planning should be as enjoyable as the event!
