Suggestions For Paying The Minister, Soloists And Performers At Your Wedding

Many of us have daydreamed about the day when we will walk down the aisle ever since childhood, right down to the gown we will wear, what our hair will look like, and the colors in our bouquet. Wedding planning can be thrilling but without help, it can be overwhelming.

Set a date outside of the wedding season. That may means having a wedding in a less popular month or on a weekday, but the savings can be significant. During these months, venues become more expensive. If you must book a space in these months, be certain to book way ahead of time to get a reasonable deal.

Keep transportation in mind when planning your wedding. Try to have limos and taxis available for those who do not have a ride to take them back to their hotel at the end of the night. This is good for those drinking alcohol.

You don’t need a big, expensive, flashy wedding cake. Talk to your local bakery owner about something smaller, or pre-cut into individual portions. Many bakeries will offer healthier options, such as 100-calorie cupcakes, fruit fillings, meringue toppings, or gluten-free ingredients.

Avoid cluttering tables with too many flowers at your reception. Usually, the flowers are only in your guests’ way. There are some guests that have allergies to flowers, as well. Adorn the tables with romantic, non-scented candles instead.

Embellish your bouquet with sparkle. You can use rhinestones, diamonds or Swarovski crystals. This is achieved by adding in a few adhesive or heat-fixed crystals, a small piece of costume jewelry, or even a treasured heirloom piece. To make sure it goes with your ensemble, remain consistent with the cut, size and colors of the sparkles.

Practice going down the aisle while wearing the shoes you are going to wear at the wedding. If you fear turning your ankle awkwardly, think about flat heels instead. Not falling beats wearing sexy shoes.

Instead of spending a fortune on a wedding cake, get a bunch of mini-tarts or cupcakes. This will make things very convenient for you. Guests can take cupcakes with them as they are leaving.

Try to have your reception during the middle portion of the day. During the day, you will see that people are less likely to drink, which can noticeably reduce your costs. Furthermore, lunch receptions are often less expensive than dinner receptions. This allows you to add more to your menu or use the savings elsewhere.

When making table assignments for your reception, ensure that even numbers of guests will be at each table. Try grouping tables by age groups so that they can talk about similar things.

If it is within your budget, you might want to take a wedding cruise with just your closest friends and family. If you do this, you can start your honeymoon immediately after the ceremony ends. Some ships will give special deals to people who get married on board.

Proper planning can ease the stress of a wedding. By doing so, there is a good chance the experience will be as fun and fantastic as the event you have waited your whole life for.
