Weddings can be stressful and delicate, but you need a positive mindset in order to pull everything together. The best thing to do to get prepared for all of this is to learn whatever you can about weddings. Then you will be able to make sure that yours goes well. The tips below will help.
Set a date outside of the wedding season. Traditional wedding season is from May to September. Venues are usually more expensive then. If you plan on getting married during these months, plan as early as you can for the lowest cost.
You will need to make a choice about how much alcohol you want to pay for, and which type of serving will be most cost efficient. Keeping an open bar doesn’t come cheap, but keeping it open for an extended time can be even more costly. If holding the wedding at an outside venue, they may have alcohol serving options available that can control costs.
Should you want to cater the food yourself, look to wholesale stores like Sam’s. This will enable you to save a lot of money. Think about asking friends to contribute to the food bill.
Of course, the most important aspect of getting married is choosing the right intended! This is a huge commitment, and rushing into things for the sake of being married may be catastrophic. See your partner as she really is–the good and the bad. Think not only about the reasons you love her, but all her bad habits and quirks that might irritate you after months or years together.
The above tips can help you plan your wedding and prevent it from going sour. But just remember that even proper planning doesn’t mean a perfect day, so expect a few surprises and don’t let them ruin your spirit on your wedding day.
