TIP! When wedding planning, think about what alcohol you want to serve, how you want to serve it, and try to be cost efficient. Having an open bar may cost a lot, especially if it is available throughout the entire day.

Weddings are exhilarating! This special day is when two hearts become one. Your wedding is something you dream of from the time you are a child. This article will give you practical advice to make your day special for the two of you.

TIP! Purchasing a wedding dress can be expensive. Perhaps you could look at dresses not considered as wedding dresses.

If you are making the food for your wedding, try shopping at stores like Costco. Wholesale prices are generally lower. See if your friends can chip in for food costs.

TIP! Choose ethnic catering to spice things up. Chicken and steak have been done to death, so you may want to branch out a little.

Typically, a wedding dress costs a lot of money. Don’t limit yourself to considering dresses that are marketed specifically as wedding gowns. A dress for other occasions, such as holiday parties, can sometimes work for a wedding dress, and will usually cost a lot less. Even if you need the dress to be altered, it will probably be less expensive than buying a wedding dress.

TIP! When you are choosing a makeup artist for your ceremony, always look at samples of their previous work. Do you really like their style? They must be able to create the exact type of look you want.

When someone is going to talk during your wedding, be sure to have them rehearse what they’re going to say in front of you so that you know what they’re saying is appropriate. Remember that your guests will include people across a wide range of ages, and a joke that younger generations find amusing might be offensive to older guests.

TIP! Really consider your vows, as this is one of the central parts of a wedding ceremony. Your vows are a reflection of the strength of your commitment to your partner.

You may want to utilize ethnic dishes for a unique reception. Chicken and steak have been done to death, so you may want to branch out a little. Variety makes life exciting and will undoubtedly make your dinner unforgettable!

TIP! Flowers are great, but don’t place too many of them on your tables or they can become tacky. The flowers will often just get in the way when your guests are trying to eat.

Try tying small decorative items into each element in the wedding decor. You can use a nice little ribbon in many places, such as on your gown, in your hair, or even intertwined with bouquets of flowers. This will help with the elegance at your wedding.

TIP! Tell your DJ about songs you like and songs you dislike. It could be rap, metal or country-western.

If you are going to have a destination wedding, give your guests a basket filled with exotic goodies. You will want to include useful items such as a disposable camera, tourist map that shows fun places in the local area, sunglasses and a hat. You may also want to include a guide for the restaurants in the area so they can choose where they prefer to eat.

TIP! Make sure your venue has enough space for dancing. You want to have ample room for everyone to get down, so if the dance floor of your favorite venue is lacking at least make sure that you can add some size by moving nearby tables and chairs.

Although you may have found and purchased the perfect dress, it is a good idea to have the bridal shop hold it until the big day. In this way, you can be certain it will be properly stored and protected from damage. It will stay fresh and unwrinkled at the store.

TIP! You can have a loved one go online to become ordained so that they can officiate over your wedding. This can make your ceremony more personal, and can save you on an officiant.

If money isn’t an issue, you may want to get married on a cruise ship with close members of your family and close friends. By doing this, you can be on your honeymoon as soon as the ceremony ends. Many cruise companies have special deals for wedding and honeymooning couples.

TIP! Search Craigslist for local businesses to help with the things you need for your wedding. Take along your groom to the first meeting, and ensure there is at least one face-to-face meeting prior to any money being handed over.

You can have a special relative or friend become ordained online so that they can perform your wedding vows. This makes your ceremony more personal, while saving you money on obtaining an officiant. But do not mar this important day by breaking the law; verify that it is permitted in your region.

Try searching Craigslist to find a local DJ or band for your wedding. Prior to giving them a dime, meet them personally, but have your groom along for safety.

TIP! For instance, consider a menu of contemporary fusion with popular dishes. Make the menu unique by adding ethnic desserts, beverages and wedding favors that are edible.

If both bride and groom have a love for travelling, then incorporate a wedding theme that includes this passion. Place cards or invitations can be designed in the style of a bus ticket or postcard. Perhaps use an old, leather suitcase as a display case for the programs and families involved in the wedding.

TIP! Gift registries are traditional parts of weddings. To keep things peaceful, be sure guests don’t feel obligated to buy you something.

If you plan to have an outdoor ceremony, be sure to take weather (sun or rain) into account to ensure happy guests. Rent some tents, or choose a venue with indoor shelter in addition to its outdoor setting. One helpful trick if it’s wet, but you can still stay outdoors, is to use boards as walkways through wet or muddy areas.

TIP! Research in advance any band or DJ you are thinking about hiring. Get references and never be afraid to contact them.

Investigate the legalities of a destination if you are planning an event away from home. Even the slightest hitch can derail your big days, so it’s best to book your venue, caterer, and transportation arrangements well in advance.

TIP! You need to make sure you plan everything well ahead of time. You might believe one year is plenty of time for planning a wedding; however, the more you wait the more costly and unavailable the service providers and venues will be.

If dancing isn’t your forte, you should prepare yourself for the first dance by donning a long skirt and taking a few practice runs around the living room. You personally may be fine moving in a longer dress, but your fiancee may be very happy for the practice. This helps to curb any bumbling, especially if you have a dress that has a puffy skirt.

TIP! When planning a wedding, be sure to consider the weather. Your guests may not want to stay and celebrate your outdoor wedding, if it is extremely hot.

Decide in advance if you will be inviting children to your wedding. This is relevant because you can save money as well as your sanity if there are no children attending. However, you might run into attendance problems of adults invited due to no childcare options for them.

Save Money

TIP! You might feel silly but practice smiling before your wedding. This will help you to be sure that your smile looks great in the wedding photos.

A great way to save money on your wedding is by using other alternatives to flower arrangements. Use your imagination to create a bouquet out of different objects for the flower girl. You can bring in silk flowers to the ceremony as well. The silk flowers save money, but they also can be saved themselves. They provide a nice keepsake, too.

TIP! The bride’s mother, as well as any bridesmaids, should be ready to go far before it is time to get into your wedding gown. You need to be the central focus during the final moments prior to the ceremony.

Research in advance any band or DJ you are thinking about hiring. Tell them you would like references prior to hiring anyone. Once you make a decision, you want to make sure the date is well known, and that a contract is signed to confirm the agreement. You don’t want the lack of music to put a shade of blue on your wedding day.

TIP! Have an account set aside for the wedding only. Keeping a fixed amount of money in a separate wedding account will allow you to monitor how much you are spending, while making it easier to stick to a budget.

Don’t forget to consider weather conditions when planning your wedding. If it is hot outside, the day of your wedding, your guest might want to leave, if your reception is outside! As well, if the weather is frigid and your guests are too cold, they may decide to leave early. Always remember to accommodate your guests, and provide fans for a summer wedding or portable heaters for a wedding in the cold winter months.

TIP! Once you have formulated how your wedding will be designed, write it down and begin looking for the appropriate services. You can make a list of services that are offered in your area and narrow the selection by using price and services offered as a deciding factor.

It is true. Weddings are filled with excitement. It is when two people decide to share their lives with each other. You have a lot of planning to do. Utilize the handy ideas in this piece, and your wedding cannot go wrong. Congratulations to you!
