If you are going to get married very soon, you probably have some questions about how to plan your wedding. While it should be the best time of your life, sometimes stress creeps in. That is why this advice is available to show you a few tips to avoid unnecessary stress.
Getting married in an off-season will lower your wedding costs. Wedding season runs from May through September. Venues are usually more expensive then. If you can’t plan your wedding at any other time, book your venue as soon as possible to get a great deal.
When you plan your wedding, be sure to think about cost effective alcohol options. An open bar that is available all evening can quickly become a very costly endeavor. Ask the venue you’ve chosen for the reception which options they have available to you, and what the cost would be for each.
Purchasing a wedding gown online can save a lot of money. If you decide to go this route, purchase the dress early so you will have time to get it altered. I spent $100 on the gown I purchased for my wedding, but spent another $200 for altering it. Make sure to allow for additional expenses in your total budget.
Serve ethnic food at your wedding if you want to spice it up. Chicken and steak are over-served, so why not pick some other foods in your desired cuisine? Make sure that your wedding feast is something that everyone will remember for years to come.
DO not select a dress that requires you to go on a starvation diet. This will only make you lightheaded and dehydrating, and it could even make you ill. Passing out at the altar in the middle of exchanging vows? Not a pleasant thought. Purchase a dress that will hug your curves and fit you well the way you are.
Utilizing these suggestions can help you remain calm and relaxed while planning the joyous event. Enjoy the whole planning process as this should not be stressful.
