Weddings are a time for you and those close to you to celebrate. Use the strategies in this guide to help you in your wedding planning so that you can have an awesome wedding you will remember throughout your whole life.
Remember to consider how you would like the alcohol at your reception served, and how much it will cost. An open bar that is available all evening can quickly become a very costly endeavor. Inquire with your wedding venue as to what their alcohol options available are.
It’s important to include the beliefs and values of your immediate families in your wedding ceremony. It may help to discuss this with your families so that they understand how you plan on handling dual faiths in your marriage.
Buying wedding gowns online can save you hundreds of dollars, but be sure to do it very early to allow you time to get your gown altered when you receive it. It is perfectly possible to purchase a gown for a few hundred dollars and have it altered for as little as $200. When deciding how much to spend, remember to include the cost of alterations.
Do not place too many flowers on the tables at your wedding reception. The majority of the times, the flowers just get in the way. Also, some of your guests may have allergies to the flowers. Unscented candles can get placed around the tables for an atmosphere of romance.
Make sure that the venue you choose for your reception has adequate space for dancing. You can make room by moving some chairs and tables around when it’s time to dance, just make sure you find enough space for people to get their groove on.
The earlier you buy things for your wedding and plan things out the cheaper they should be. You can even find great deals online so be sure to shop around. I only spent $100 on my gown when I was married, but I spent another $200 on having it altered. Be sure to add the additional cost of alterations in your budget.
Try to arrange to hold your reception in mid-day. You can cut down on bar costs when you have a reception during the day, when people tend to drink less. The costs of lunch are far more affordable than catered dinners. Therefore, you can afford to step up your menu or divert that part of your budget to another area, such as floral arrangements or wedding favors.
If not planned well, a joyous wedding occasion can turn disastrous. Use what you’ve just read to make sure such a wedding disaster doesn’t happen to you.
