If you have just become engaged, you will need to start planning your¬†wedding¬†right away. You may be surprised how far in advance venues and vendors must be booked in advance of your¬†wedding¬†date. The following tips will outline the work ahead for you to plan out the perfect¬†wedding.
Send your¬†wedding¬†guests off with a sweet treat to thank them for their support by handing out small takeout containers of warm cookies paired with small glass bottles of organic vanilla, chocolate, or soy milk. You can use twine and small stamped or embossed name tags with the couple’s name and¬†wedding¬†date.
Make sure you know exactly how many people will be attending your¬†wedding. You need to know how many seats are needed and how much food needs to be provided. When you sent out your¬†wedding¬†invitations, make sure to tell people to contact you and let you know if they are coming or not.
Pick your¬†wedding¬†date to be at a memorable time in your life. For example, Valentine’s Day is a romantic time to get married and is also an easy date to remember. A birthday or other anniversary is also an excellent choice. This will make remembering the date easier if either of you are very forgetful! It can also give you a theme to work with like hearts or birthday candles.
If you’re having an informal¬†wedding¬†ceremony and want the experience to be more personal and intimate, consider arranging for a close friend or relative to register as a justice of the peace so that they may wed you. It’s not a complicated process and can make your¬†wedding¬†even more special.
Adding items to your¬†wedding¬†gift registry can be very overwhelming, especially if you register at a large department store. Do not be afraid to make multiple appointments, rather than trying to build your entire registry in a single day. This approach keeps the process stress-free. Consider building your registry by household area. On one trip, choose kitchen items, then bathroom goods, then items for the bedroom and so on.
Hiring an unknown or untested photographer can really be throwing caution to the wind when it comes to the lasting memories of your¬†wedding. You want every moment of your big day captured in pictures you and your future spouse can treasure for a life time, so don’t take chances on a cheap photographer or one that has not shown proof of his or her expertise!
Before you get married, try to meet with your wedding vendors ahead of time. The best vendors will let you try different dishes and cakes or have you look at decorations to have you select what you like best. You should also show the location to the vendors so they can plan ahead for delivery.
Weddings can be stressful events, especially if you have not done the proper amount of research and planning. Make your life easier by taking advice from people who have been there. It’s nice to avoid mistakes that others in your shoes have made. You will cut down on your financial burden, as well as your stress.
