This is the time for planning your wedding. You may have been dreaming of this for years and finally, your time has come. You do not want to spend an arm and a leg. How can you ever match the wedding costs to your budget? Luckily, this article can help you plan a great day without breaking the bank.
When wedding planning, think about what alcohol you want to serve, how you want to serve it, and try to be cost efficient. An open bar that is available all evening can quickly become a very costly endeavor. Inquire at your venue what your alcoholic beverage serving options are.
When you decide who you want to give the speeches during the reception, ask them to read them to you so you know they are appropriate. Generally, many generations attend a wedding, so a joke that’s funny to young people may not be to the elders.
Avoid over-dieting just to fit your dress! If you rush the weight loss process, your health will surely suffer. You want to stay on your feet during the ceremony and reception. The best idea is to purchase a dress that has a corset back. This will allow you to adjust if necessary before walking down the aisle.
Spend some time writing your vows. These words are important for your new spouse. Keep in mind that getting married is a commitment that might require some sacrifices. Make your love for your spouse-to-be crystal clear in your vows.
You do not have to get a wedding cake that is filled with countless calories. There are some bakers who are able to prepare delicious and beautiful cakes that are individually sized to be just enough to give someone the cake they want without the calories they do not want. Some bakeries are able to make healthier cupcakes that contain less than 100 calories in each serving providing you with healthier options such as fruit- fillings in replacement to frosting, calorie-free sweeteners and gluten-free ingredients.
When having pictures taken, don’t force guests to wait. The bride, groom and wedding party should take the photos in advance. In order to reduce the length of time that the guests need to wait for the bride and groom to arrive at the wedding reception, the bride and groom should also be photographed with their parents in advance.
If possible, see if your reception venue offers lighting choices. While this might seem like a little detail, a lower light for the first dance is always preferable, while you will want things a little brighter during the speeches part of the ceremony. Ask the prospective venue about it, before choosing.
Now that it’s time to plan your actual wedding, you may not know how to accomplish everything on your budget. You want perfection, without the threat of bankruptcy instead of a honeymoon. Hopefully you now feel better able to plan the wedding of your dreams on whatever budget you have. Make the best use of them and enjoy your wedding.
