Writing up-to-date information about wedding planning is a challenge. The wedding industry and wedding etiquette and your wedding plans are forever changing. What was ‘correct’ a few years ago has been changed to old fashioned or out of date. So, here is a portion of an article written by AbNewsWire.com titled ‘Talking To Others Is the Key To Planning A Wedding.’ Cannot say I have heard of placing a money box at the entrance of the reception venue for guests to place money in the box as a gift. Not sure I agree with that suggestion. Seems a bit tacky and how will the hosts know who gave a gift or who didn’t. At least a signed card would confirm the guest attended the event and sent their congratulations to the couple.
It’s the day that many people dream of their whole lives. Planning a wedding can be a very exciting process – it is the symbol, after all, of a union of two people who will spend the rest of their lives together. However, it can also feel overwhelming at times. The suggestions presented in this article will give you some ideas on how to plan your own special day.
One of the most vital aspects of your wedding is going to be the music that you play. Make sure that the music is modern, but is very personal too, as it should represent the two parties tying the knot. This will add to the ambience of the overall experience of your wedding.
When planning for your wedding, the time of day could greatly affect your cost. If you are having an evening wedding, you will have to serve dinner which costs more than serving your guests lunch. If you serve alcohol, more people will drink heavily in the evening than they would at lunch time.
If you are going to be getting married soon it would be wise to decide whether it will be a simple wedding or a grand wedding. Having this squared away from the first moment will help center and guide all the decisions related to the wedding. This will prevent a clutter of ideas.
If you fear that people won’t want to give you cash wedding gifts as they don’t have a lot of money to give, include a “cash box” at the door to your reception. Guests are asked in the wedding invitations to bring their gift in an unmarked envelope, allow them to place it in the box anonymously and reducing any guilt they might feel.
When taking your family on your destination wedding, a way for everyone to save money is by cooking your own meals. Plan ahead for meals outside the wedding so that you’ll have a shopping list at the ready and cooks who know what they’re doing.
If you don’t know the language in the place, you’ve selected for your destination wedding, consider hiring a local guide to assist you. This will help you in all your wedding preparations as well as any tours or events you decide to attend outside your wedding itself. Your family may also appreciate it for any problems they might face.
To save money, use seasonal flowers instead of exotic or out of season flowers for your wedding decorations. Flowers that are in season are a lot cheaper to buy. While exotic flowers may look nice, they can be more than double the price as they need to be imported from abroad.
Don’t forget to check with guests to ensure that any food allergies or diet choices, like veganism, are covered in your wedding reception menu. This is also important in your cake choice, so make sure to get a list of ingredients from the baker and provide them to anyone who has a food allergy.
Your wedding colors are very important which means taking flower seasons into consideration for your wedding date. The cost of flowers not available in the current season is quite expensive. The additional cost of these flowers can easily force you to cut your flower needs in half to accommodate the inflated cost.
Effective event planners know that it’s important to do your research. Many, many people before you have gotten married and have plenty to say about planning a wedding. Learn from them!
