When it comes time to plan your wedding, every single person that you meet and speak with is going to tell you their opinions about how to plan your wedding. And while their advice is helpful, it is largely related to items that they wish they had for their wedding. Not for yours.
For this reason, below is some information which can help you with your wedding in a general nature to help it run smoothly and stress-free, no matter what your personal style or preferences are.
Hold Your Numbers
Do you know what happens if you let your second cousin bring a plus-1? You also have to let your nephew bring his partner, and also your own partner’s uncle will now want to bring his new girlfriend.
The easiest way to avoid this slippery slope and prevent your budget from being blown is to hold strong to your numbers. Once you have finished your guest list and have accommodated and budgeted for each of your guests, don’t allow that number to go up.
Be Sure the Venue Is Professional
Many venues will advertise that they specialize in weddings simply to get a booking. And while they may be able to provide an okay experience, they won’t understand the nuances of a wedding and be able to provide an exceptional day and night. The Groupon Coupons page for Biltmore is a great place to start your search when looking for reputable wedding venues, and offers a full range of hosting options.
Buy in Advance
Do you know what the difference between this season’s table dressings and last seasons are? Neither do your guests. With this in your mind, visit wedding and ornament supply stores which are having sales and look for items that you can use for your wedding. While it may mean storing a large number of guest table centerpieces in your garage for a few months, once you apply this tip to the rest of your wedding line items the savings can quickly begin to add up.
Ask for Help
If you need help collecting the ribbons for your seats, ask a friend to pick them up for you. If you are having trouble finding a makeup artist. Put a post on social media. If you aren’t sure which caterer to choose or where to buy flowers from, speak with a family member. Whichever challenge you find yourself up against, don’t be afraid to speak up and ask for help. Planning your own wedding isn’t an easy thing do so, and your friends and family will be there to help you make it an amazing experience.
Your wedding day can be one of the most special times in your life and is a great celebration of the love that you and your partner have for each other. In addition to the tips in this article, listen to what your instincts tell you when you come up against problems with people giving you different advice. Remember, it’s your wedding and is all about the love that you and your partner share, so make sure that shows in your wedding.
