Weddings are a time for you and those close to you to celebrate. By following our tips, you will be able to create a memorable wedding that will bring you many happy moments of reflection throughout your life.
Getting married in an off-season will lower your wedding costs. Most people get married between May and December. During this time, wedding venues will be more expensive. If you really want your wedding during this season, book as far in advance as possible for a great deal.
If you decide to handle the food for your wedding, Costco and other wholesale stores are the way to go. You will get more food for a better price if you shop wholesale. Think about asking friends and relations to chip in on the food.
You should try to create a wedding that is extremely personal by having elements which encompass you, your fiance, and the relationship between you two. Think of a theme that truly represents the two of you as a couple.
Have your wedding at a friend’s home. If you know anyone with a farm or a large back yard, you can drastically reduce or even eliminate a major wedding cost. Make sure you hire someone to set up and clean up, but even that cost will be minimal.
The music ranks up there with the videographer in terms of importance. Make sure the person you hire knows what type of music you do not want played. This is far more important than getting every tune you want to hear played, as a song from a genre you and your guests hate can kill the entire mood. If you hate a specific song or a genre, such as heavy metal or country, you don’t want that played at your wedding reception. Make sure that let the one you are marrying know as well.
Make sure your venue has enough space for dancing. You don’t want to have dancers crashing into seated guests or knocking over the dessert table, so ensure you have adequate space available. If necessary, move some chairs and tables out of the way to make more room.
“Destination” wedding guests will appreciate a thoughtful gift of vacation items awaiting them in their rooms. Have items in them like disposable cameras, hats, sunglasses and tourist maps of the exciting places that they can visit. You may also want to include a guide for the restaurants in the area so they can choose where they prefer to eat.
The lighting in your venue should be able to be dimmed. You may not think about it in advance, but you may want the lights turned down a bit during some dances or for the cake cutting. Before giving the venue the thumbs up and your money, ask them about this detail.
If you can, it’s a good idea to have a cruise ship wedding with just your family and close friends. This will allow you to have your honeymoon directly afterwards. Most cruise ships even have special prices for wedding parties and all of the guests in the party.
If not planned well, a joyous wedding occasion can turn disastrous. Use the helpful tips here, and your wedding planning will be much easier.
