Marriage is a wonderful, beautiful thing, but weddings can be extremely stressful. Planning everything ahead of time is overwhelming, between choosing the cake to selecting guests. Get your wedding plans in order by trying a few of the following savvy tips.
When planning your wedding, think about what type of alcohol serving you want, and what type will be the most cost efficient. Keeping an open bar doesn’t come cheap, but keeping it open for an extended time can be even more costly. Ask your venue about the different alcohol serving options that they have available.
Wedding dresses can be very expensive. When you are dress shopping, try looking for dresses that aren’t traditional wedding dresses. For example, a bridesmaid dress is typically much less expensive and may be just what you’re looking for. Even if the dress needs alterations, it could still be cheaper than an actual wedding dress.
Internet bridal shops have wedding dresses for bargain basement prices, but make sure to order well in advance so that you can get your dress altered before the big day. It is also important to realize that alterations can cost quite a bit of money. Make sure to allow for additional expenses in your total budget.
Once you know who all is going to give a speech at your wedding, hold a rehearsal for everyone so you can censor out inappropriate material. There will be people of all ages present, and what may seem funny to a younger person may not be humorous to an older crowd.
A lot of people dream of their wedding for their whole lives, right up to the moment it happens. This gives weddings an almost ethereal feel. But planning an actual wedding can be complicated and daunting. The above advice should be a boon to you while you plan your wedding day, and provide you a sense of relief.
