A wedding is a very exciting time! However, it may also be a bit demanding to make various appointments around other people’s schedule. Then sometimes, too many choices may make it difficult to make a decision. Just remember to breathe! Use these tips to make your wedding day easier:
You can not serve everyone’s favorite top-shelf drink or you would quickly exceed the price of the dress, so consider what you like, and what will keep you within your budget. An open bar that is available all evening can quickly become a very costly endeavor. Ask the venue you’re thinking of having the wedding at about the different types of alcohol they serve, and what they have in stock.
Make sure that everyone in your wedding party knows how they’re getting to the wedding site and back home from your wedding! This is especially important if you’re going to be serving alcohol, and essential if it’s an open bar. If you’re worried about anyone getting too inebriated, offer free cab rides to anyone who doesn’t bring a car, or drive them home in your limo.
Consider visiting a local park or museum to have your wedding photos taken. It’s amazing to have a gorgeous background in your photographs, but sometimes your actual wedding location might not offer such a view. Contact your city’s government office to see if you’ll need a photography license for the location you choose.
Ensure that everyone coming to your destination wedding, knows exactly what to do and where to go when they get off the plane. Provide them with detailed instructions on how to get to the hotel and then, how to get from the hotel to your wedding location. They should also have help in heading home.
Ask a close friend or family member if they’d be interested in becoming ordained online to be able to officiate your ceremony. Not only will this save you money by not needing to hire an officiant, it will add a nice personal touch to the ceremony. You should check the legality of this option in your area before you make a decision.
In order to prevent excessive stress during the months before the wedding, ensure you have allowed plenty of time to plan the wedding. It takes a lot of time to interview and select florists, photographers, and caterers, etc. In general, the larger the wedding, the more time you will need to make sure everything turns out perfectly on your wedding day.
If you are having trouble deciding when to get married, think about tying the knot during the wintertime. Try to plan your wedding around November or January so that you can avoid the high prices during the holidays. This will help to give you an inexpensive wedding that is beautiful too.
If you want to get married in another state, you need to know the state’s marriage laws. There may be fees to pay or other red tape to get through. You do not want to book a hotel or pay for a flight until these are taken care of.
Consider a disc jockey instead of a live band for your reception. A band can often be very expensive, and the type of music they can play will be limited. A disc jockey can often save you money, and their playlist is only limited by your own imagination.
By not being too nervous, using a clear head and working hard, you can make sure your wedding is as rewarding as possible. Not only are you entering a new chapter into your life story, you’re going to be sharing this with the person you’re decided to share that story with. Congratulations! Enjoy you day!
