It goes without saying that you want your wedding day to be perfect, joyful and magical. Planning a wedding, though, can be something you would like to forget. Follow all of the tips you have learned to maximize your happiness.
Look at the portfolios of any makeup artist you are considering for your wedding day. Are you comfortable with the makeup they’ve done before? Consider doing a trial run before the big day. You don’t want to find out an hour before the ceremony that your makeup artist has a look planned that you hate.
You don’t have to overwhelm yourself with an expensive and high calorie cake; contact your local specialty bakeries and boutiques and inquire about getting smaller, individual portions made instead. There are many bakeries that will prepare low-calorie cupcakes for you, or can find ways to cut the calories from a cake. Whether they use gluten-free ingredients, a healthy fruit filling, a calorie free frosting, or something else, it’s sure to be better for you than the alternative.
The venue that you select for your wedding reception should have enough space for dancing and activities. Nothing is worse than everyone being crammed together during a dance, so move things out of the way to help create extra space.
When you choose to invite family members to join you at your destination wedding, ask them if they would like to stay for the honeymoon, as well! Longer stays at hotels are often discounted so it’ll save you money in the long run. This will not only give them a single day to remember, but a whole vacation.
If you are hosting a destination wedding, your guests may appreciate receiving a basket of vacation goodies in their room on their arrival. Include maps, cameras, hats, disposable cameras, or guides on local attractions that they may want to visit. It may also be nice to give them a guide to a restaurant in the area so they have an easier time finding a place to get food.
Put your schedule of events online, so that all guests can access it at any time. Maintain an updated lists of all events, such as the rehearsal or a pre-wedding dinner, so your guests know exactly where they will be at all times.
If the wedding couple both like to travel they can use decorations that portray that interest. It’s possible to fashion wedding invitations and notices such that they look like old-fashioned postcards or train passes. You can use old luggage to display things like photos, wedding favors, or wedding programs.
Along with the birth of a child, few life events are as memorable and remarkable as your wedding. But such a big event means that there are many details to plan for. However, with the above advice, your wedding day will be remembered as the best day of your life.
