The time is approaching fast, and you will be married to your loved one soon. Planning your wedding day is no small task. However, with the right advice you can plan a wedding ceremony, reception and party that will provide some fantastic memories for you and your guests. Read on and you will find some tips that can transform a wedding from the mediocre to the fabulous.
Weddings are stressful. That is for sure. Whether it is big or small, there will be things that go wrong no matter how much planning you do in advance. Having a friend of confidant other than your soon-to-be spouse, will help you make it through the process. Having a friend who can help and support your day in the spotlight as a bride or groom is essential.
When you are planning your rehearsal dinner, make sure that it is very intimate, as you will only want to invite members of your family and close friends. This will make things very personal so that you can make toasts that appeal to the people who made a huge impact in your life.
One of the things that you can do to make sure that everything looks good is to choose a bathroom buddy. This person can sit next to you in the bathroom to give you another set of eyes to analyse your dress, accessories and the makeup that you will wear on your wedding day.
How your complexion looks is a major factor of the wedding as you will want to reduce the amount of blemishes that you have. You will experience anxiety, so combat this by drinking more water than you usually would. This will help to flush out the toxins in your body, giving your skin a natural glow.
Here's a fun tip - practice your wedding kiss! You want to make it sincere and not sexy, not too short but not too long. Practice how you'll hold your partner's face, if you choose to, or where your hands will be otherwise. You only get one shot and it will be over in an instance, so dont forget to practice.
You should decide whether you or a family member will be taking the wedding photographs or whether you want a professional to do them for you. If hiring a professional wedding photographer make sure you interview them first. It is important that you understand their style, personality and working practices before the wedding as they will be with you for most of the day. With photography, local knowledge counts. If youre getting married somewhere particularly scenic like Devon or Cornwall make sure you choose a Devon or Cornwall wedding photographer who knows the best scenic locations, angles and understands the unique lighting situations near the sea.
While you are taking your wedding photos, do not let your guests wait. Pictures of the bride, groom, bridesmaids and groomsmen can be snapped in advance. You can also take pictures with both newlyweds' families at this time.
Ensure that everyone coming to your destination wedding, knows exactly what to do and where they are going. Provide them with detailed instructions on how to get to the hotel and then, how to get from the hotel to your wedding location. Also supply information on local taxi companies for their return after the wedding.
Practice. Many weddings have a rehearsal and a rehearsal dinner. Gather the key members of your wedding party and practice several times before the big day, not just once. This is especially important if you have complicated or long choreography or special instructions that vary from the norm.
If you are having a destination wedding, why not treat your guests with an indulgent gift basket delivered right to their hotel rooms? Some useful items to include might be tourist information, sun hats, sunglasses, disposable cameras, maps of the area, sunscreen, and so on. One piece that will really make this idea a hit with everyone is to include a restaurant guide so that all your guests are able to find options that they enjoy.
Using these tips and others like them will help you get to the alter with a smile on your face. You can make the most of your day and the most of your budget and perhaps create a lifetime of fond memories.
