Unfortunately, many people experience too much stress during wedding planning to enjoy what should be one of the happiest times of their life. The following are some ideas that can help optimize the entire experience of getting married.
Make sure that at your wedding, there are enough refreshments for all of your guests. During the night, there will be a lot of dancing and conversing, which can lead to dehydration. Prepare accordingly by having a lot of quality water and soda in many different locations at your wedding.
Give back to all who are attending the wedding, by making a speech towards the end, thanking everyone for being a part of your life. Most of the attendees at the wedding are integral parts of your history and deserve thanks for where you are at, the day of the nuptial.
When sending out your wedding invitations, remember that it is your day, so avoid any person or combination of people that will ruin it in any way for you. It may be an insult to someone not to be invited, but if having them at your wedding will cause even the slightest of issues for you or your future spouse, it is really in your best interest to keep them off your guest list.
At your bridal party, try to make things as fun as possible with the people that you love. Have manicures and pedicures done to reward the people who made the biggest impact in your life. This will help to keep things casual as well, so that the mood is set for the party.
Most weddings are planned to fall on the weekend. If you are looking to save money, consider having your wedding during the week. Venues and hotels have higher prices during the weekend since that is when most people want those things. Switching to a weekday could save you a decent amount of money.
Have an unexpected twist at your wedding to make it more memorable. If you are planning to have your wedding during the summer, consider having a winter related theme. If your wedding is planned for the winter, you could try a beach theme. Guests will remember that your wedding theme was different from the actual season.
When you walk down the aisle on the day of your wedding, make sure that you smile as often as possible. All eyes are going to be on you as you will want to look as happy and excited as possible in one of the biggest moments of your entire life.
Part of the planning for a destination should include checking out the typical weather for the time you want to get married. It’s not recommended to go to Bermuda during hurricane season, for example. Try to plan for a time where the weather is guaranteed to be sunny but not too hot.
Remember that the reason for a wedding is marriage, not an excuse to throw the perfect party. Your wedding marks the start of a new life with your partner and will go smoothly if you plan in advance.
