Wedding Tips


Advice for your wedding

Weddings can be so stressful and that's why we have planners and family and friends! They all can help your life so much less stressful and more happier.

When starting to plan a wedding it can be so overwhelming, that sometimes you just want to drive far far away and get married alone. Don't be surprised if things don't go your way and how you want them. Sometimes it just can't be done, either with your finances or the product.

Here are some wedding tips that have helped me through this wonderful yet the most stressful time of my life.

#1: Stay calm.

I planned a wedding in 3 months; think about a short amount of time. There are so many things that you have to be ready for a wedding that a bride can't do under stress so calm down and breathe. Just think that everything will turn out.

#2: Prepare, prepare, prepare:

Please brides be prepared. Get a planner or make your own and think of everything you need or possibly have to prepare and do for your wedding day.

Start by buying your wedding dress, you need your wedding dress before anything else.

Pick a date!!!

Look for a place for your wedding reception and ceremony, book it!!

Start researching colors and decorations that you want.

Pick out the bridesmaid dresses and tuxedos.

Book to have your bouquet and flower decorations ready on that day

Then there is the food, limo, hair, makeup, nails, pictures etc...

#3: Don't be cheap on photos:

You pay for what you get, really says a lot when it comes to your wedding photos. Don't go cheap on your photos, otherwise you will regret it. Research a lot of photographers and there own unique styles and costs.

#4: On a budget:

You need a budget otherwise you will spend, spend, and spend your money. If you are on a budget here are some tips that will help save your money:

Do your own makeup and save your money. If you know how to do your makeup, do it. You are the only one that knows your face inside and out.

Don't do your own hair!! Please hire someone. I have seen some pretty horrific hairdos on brides. Research some gorgeous dos and have your hairstylist try it.

Buy wedding products off of ebay or even better, craigslist. They have some great deals and cheap too.

Save on the gifts for the guests. They really just throw it out. Get creative! I used beautiful chocolate candies for my brown wedding that were cheap.

Get a place that you can use as a reception and ceremony, it will save you money

Shorten your guest list

#5: Have your fiance involved:

I know the bride is the one making the plans, but the groom wants to be involved and have some sort of say in everything you plan. Have him involved, you won't be disappointed.

#6: Prepare for your marriage:

I know this is such a big day, but what really matters at the end is how well you are prepared for your marriage and your role as either the bride or the groom. Read up on marriage literature and articles. It will help your marriage, a lot!

      One very important service provider we need to mention is the Celebrant! Once you have decided on your desired wedding date... Book your Celebrant! As without a Celebrant the whole day is just one big expensive party! Each Celebrant is unique & individual & many offer varying services, so it's important to look around, maybe meet a couple or few, & then make your decision as to who you would like to share your special day with. It's important that you & your fiance are both comfortable with, & have confidence in the fact that the celebrant you've chosen can support you, & create the magical ceremony you've been dreaming of!

      Best of luck on this exciting journey :)
