With brides dreaming of saying their “I do’s” with their toes in the sand, destination weddings are becoming more and more popular. Maybe you have a destination in mind, or maybe you are just toying with the idea. This article will give you some tips for planning your dream destination wedding.
The right wedding dress can be quite expensive. Perhaps you could look at dresses not considered as wedding dresses. For example, a formal white dress, such as a prom or bridesmaid dress, will not be as expensive as a wedding dress. Even if you think you would like to change it in some way, it should be less expensive than if you bought a wedding dress.
If you are going to have an open bar at the wedding, make sure that there is someone to monitor the people who are drinking so that no one goes overboard. Also, everyone who purchases alcohol should have to show identification to be served. This can limit any accidents at the wedding.
Weddings are stressful. That is for sure. Whether it is big or small, there will be things that go wrong. Having a friend of confidant other than your soon-to-be spouse, will help you make it through the process. Having a friend who is on your side and who doesn’t throw their opinion in on what color the dresses should be, is a brides essential.
When working the room at your wedding reception, you should stick to your new spouse. The two of you together should be mingling with all your guests, showing the unity that will keep you going through your long relationship together. Introduce your partner to anyone he doesn’t know, and he should return the favor.
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.
Remember to serve non-alcoholic drinks at your wedding reception. When people are planning their wedding reception, they just assume all of their guests will want to drink alcohol, which is not always the case. Also, there may be children or teenagers at your wedding, who obviously, cannot drink alcoholic beverages.
To ensure that you make it down the aisle with ease, be sure to try on your wedding shoes and wear them for one to two hours – at least twice – before the big day. This is especially important if you are unaccustomed to wearing heels, or if your feet are prone to swelling. It will also help you to decide if you need to add strap or heel cushions to your shoes to prevent blisters.
