The first concern that most have after getting engaged is their wedding. This is a great time for friends and family alike to come celebrate your love. What follows are some great tips to help you plan a big day free of problems.
Typically, a wedding dress costs a lot of money. If you are not looking for a traditional, princess type ballgown, consider looking into other types of dresses. You might find a great bridesmaid dress or simply a classy outfit that you like. Even with alterations, the cost may still be less.
One way you can cut hundreds of dollars from your wedding budget is by purchasing your wedding gown online. However, make sure you do this early enough that there is time to make any needed alteration to the gown. I bought my gorgeous gown online for only $150, but it cost me another $200 to have it altered to fit me perfectly. Be sure to work the additional cost for alterations into your overall budget.
If you are assigning any guest to give a speech at your wedding, have him rehearse the speech with you beforehand to ensure that it is appropriate. There are a lot of different age groups at a wedding. This makes some jokes told by the younger crowd inappropriate to older people.
Getting married soon? Don’t even think about crash dieting to fit into your dress. Starving yourself or resorting to unhealthy weight loss tactics causes you to feel dizzy, weak, and light-headed. You wouldn’t want to pass out. A good idea is to get a dress that has a corset back; this way, you can keep it on or take it off on your wedding day.
Try shopping around to identify skilled and experienced photographers before choosing the one for the wedding. Having your wedding ruined by bad pictures isn’t what you’re aiming for. To identify good local photographers, solicit advice and referrals from family and close friends.
Ever wonder what you will look like gliding up the aisle at your wedding? Set up a large mirror and practice walking toward it. If you plan to wear high heels with your dress, this is especially important. If you worry about twisting your ankle, wear pretty flats instead. Sexy footwear won’t do you any good if you wind up falling on your bum.
Wedding planning is always taxing, but it pays off in the end. The important thing to remember is that the day is about celebration, so make sure to enjoy and celebrate every moment. This advice can help you plan a great wedding.
