Make It The Wedding Of Your Dreams
Planning her own wedding is one of the most stressful events any woman will ever go through. The hardest part is choosing the perfect dress. It is a mistake for a woman to go try on dresses without some idea of what she likes. Another huge blunder is inviting the entire bridal party, all the mothers, and even the groom.
Ask your wedding guests to RSVP for the big day as soon as they possibly can. Understand that some people may need to wait to make sure they can get time off of work, but it’s important for you to get a head count as early as possible to know how much to spend on food and other planning.
One consideration many people don’t think about when planning a wedding is how they will keep underage guests from drinking. This activity is illegal and you never know who might call the police on your event, especially the people who own the venue you’re using! Protect everyone from prosecution and let the bartender know who shouldn’t be served.
Have a small decorated cake for the traditional cake cutting event, and serve guests sheet cake. Not only will the guests not realize nor care that their cake is not the one being cut, the bride and groom get their cake cutting pictures and save a lot of money in the process.
Ask your friends, family, and co-workers to find out what skills they have that can help you with your wedding. For example, your best friend might have worked as a florist and a cake decorator, one cousin could be a DJ and the other a photographer, and maybe your Grandmother is willing and able to do all the catering!
When photographing a wedding you’ll need to wear sensible shoes! That means no high heels for women as you might find yourself standing on a chair or pew and the last thing you want to do is take a tumble and ruin the wedding! Flat shoes with a good tread will keep you stable.
Start planning your wedding at least a year in advance. Many venues and photographers are booked out 12 to 18 months and require deposits to hold a date for you. Even if you aren’t engaged, it might be a good idea to start thinking about your potential dates and venues before hand.
When photographing a wedding, ensure that you are as unobtrusive as possible. Stay back and out of the way of people’s view, and don’t bother people during the ceremony by asking them to move out of your shot. You’ll be recommended to other engaged couples in the future if you give the family a great day.
On her wedding day, the bride is the focus of everybody’s attention. Wearing the dress she loves will fill her with confidence, making her even more beautiful on her day. Before trying on dresses, she needs to know what style she likes and what style flatters her body type. She should take one trusted and honest friend or family member to help.
