Wedding planning is complicated regardless of whose wedding you’re helping to plan. Even if you’re helping a friend rather than working on your own wedding, you may find the process quite stressful. You have a lot of options when it comes to planning a wedding. Read on for some advice about what to do to make it truly memorable.
For more cost-effective weddings, try choosing a date that is atypical to wedding season. That may means having a wedding in a less popular month or on a weekday, but the savings can be significant. Wedding venues are usually more expensive during this time. If you really want your wedding during this season, book as far in advance as possible for a great deal.
If you prefer to handle the refreshments and foods on your own, save money by shopping at wholesalers, such as Sam’s Club and Costco. If you shop wholesale, you will be able to get lots of food at much better prices. You may even ask for help with food costs from family or friends.
Transportation is something you shouldn’t forget. Some guests might need a ride to their hotel, so make sure there are taxis available (at minimum). This allows people to enjoy themselves and not have to worry about drinking and driving after the reception.
Do not place too many flowers on the tables at your wedding reception. The flowers will often just get in the way when your guests are trying to eat. Make sure to keep in mind that some guests may have flower allergies. Instead, you could place candles (non-scented) on the table tops to add a romantic feel to the reception.
Now you have discovered the inner workings of creating, hosting and planning a wedding, this information can help you make your wedding a more intimate experience. Applying these tips can make your wedding planning hassle free, and give your guests, and yourself, an experience you will treasure forever.
