Make It The Wedding Of Your Dreams
Congratulations on your engagement! As excited as you are for the upcoming nuptuals, you may also be very intimidated by the planning process. There is so much to decide and do. This article will give you tips on how you can get through the planning process and the big day itself and still have a great time.
The week before your wedding you need to follow up on all the small details and schedule your rehearsal dinner that will keep everyone in your bridal party on the same page and informed of their roles and responsibilities on the day of your wedding and leading up to it.
Being the bride, it is very important for you to remember how the groom feels about the wedding plans. Make sure to run everything by him, or he will feel as if you don’t care about whatever he thinks. Even if you don’t, you better act like you do because he will not be happy with you and may not marry you!
For a unique spin on the traditional wedding guest book, use clothespins to affix blank heavyweight over-size gift tags to a floral garland, hemp rope, or line of pennants. Mount the line over a table near the entryway and provide a variety of pens and markers in bright colors. Guests can write messages of hope and blessings for the new couple, then pin them back on the rope.
Use a mock cake for your wedding cake display. This can save you quite a bit of money when the number of guests continues to grow. The only part of that cake that is actually cake is the layer that the bride and groom cut. The guests will be served a sheet cake that will be cut in the kitchen and then served.
If you are working with a very limited budget, choose for floral stems and blooms that give you the most for your money. Robust, full blooms like blue, purple, and pink hydrangeas have a great deal of volume; even as few as three or four of the flower heads can have a stunning impact as part of your bouquet or a centerpiece.
If you are planning a wedding ceremony and reception that are infused with Tuscan or Mediterranean inspirations, opt for aromatic herbs and green plants in your floral arrangements and centerpieces. This is especially effective if guests are treated to a full meal at the reception. Attractive and fragrant choices include dill, marjoram, rosemary, and bowls of fresh lavender.
Finding flowers for a winter wedding doesn’t have to be a chore. There are many popular winter flower options–such as roses, gerber daisies, and chrysanthemums–which are available year round. Well-known holiday decorations such as holly, ivy, and poinsettias can make lovely centerpieces for reception tables. It might also be fun to have tropical flowers at your winter wedding to offset the colder season!
Having the perfect wedding doesn’t have to be a dream. Even on a limited budget, there are a lot of things you can do to get the most for your money. Use the ideas that were given to you in this article to have a beautiful wedding and to enjoy the big day.
