Your wedding is a precious event that all who attend should enjoy and savor right along with you. Apply the advice in the following paragraphs to properly plan and execute a wedding that will be eternally memorable.
Before your wedding day, practice the aisle walk as much as you can. Make sure that you do this at the actual site of the wedding, as you will want to test out the floor with the shoes you are going to wear. In this way, you can be sure everything will go smoothly on your wedding day.
When you’re planning on who to give the speeches at your wedding, have them rehearse the things they would say in front of you so you can determine if everything they say will be appropriate. If there are going to be different generations there, you don’t want to offend anyone.
Brides who love fashion will perhaps want to add a dash of sparkle to their bouquet; think rhinestones, Swarovski crystals or even some diamonds. You can create this look by using adhesive to affix crystals, a beloved heirloom or costume jewelry to the bouquet. To make sure that this look complements the entire look of your outfit, be sure that the colors, size, and cut are consistent.
Full length mirrors are great for practicing the “aisle-walk.” If you will be wearing heels, this is even more crucial. If you worry about twisting your ankle, wear pretty flats instead. Not having fancy heels is much easier to deal with than falling on your butt.
Don’t postpone the reception while you have photographs taken. Try to take as many photos as you can before the ceremony begins. Additionally, photographs of the bride with her parents and the groom with his parents can be taken before the wedding.
One detail to consider is that the venue lighting can be dimmed, if necessary. While this may appear trivial, you want to have this option, perhaps for your first dance, then brighter for the remainder of your ceremony. Before committing to a venue, you will want to ask about this option.
Give your guests a schedule of events in order for all of your guests, including those from out-of-town, will know what events they should make time for and attend. Include events such as the rehearsal, dinners, fittings and anything else they might need to appear at.
If you can afford it, consider a cruise ship wedding, inviting only close family and friends. Doing this will allow you to start your honeymoon immediately after your wedding is done. Call around to different cruise lines to see if any are running wedding specials.
A fun way to add a personal touch to your wedding is to ask a friend or family member to officiate the ceremony. This can be a wonderful way to honor someone special in your life, and to make them an important part of your big day. First, make sure your area allows this to happen.
Online communities, like Craigslist, are ideal for locating talented musicians, photographers and caterers. However, before giving them any money, meet up with them in person as a couple.
Think about getting silk flowers as an alternative to real ones. One advantage to silk flowers is the fact that they can be purchased ahead of time and the arrangements can be made prior to your wedding day.
