Anyone experienced with planning a wedding will tell you it’s not all peaches and cream. The work of planning, choosing and paying for everything can create an overwhelming amount of stress. Thankfully, the following advice will help reduce the stress of your wedding.
You can not serve everyone’s favorite top-shelf drink or you would quickly exceed the price of the dress, so consider what you like, and what will keep you within your budget. Having an open bar can be very expensive if it stays open for hours. Inquire with your wedding venue as to what their alcohol options available are.
If you will be preparing the food for your wedding, shop at wholesale stores. Wholesale shopping will let you get food for cheaper. Think about asking friends to contribute to the food bill.
A wedding dress is a big expense. When you are dress shopping, try looking for dresses that aren’t traditional wedding dresses. You might find a great bridesmaid dress or simply a classy outfit that you like. Even if this dress is not perfect and you need some adjustments made to make it your dream dress, it could still run you quite a bit less then an actual wedding dress.
Choosing your favorite gown online can be faster and cheaper, but do so well in advance to allot extra time for alterations. I only spent $100 on my gown when I was married, but I spent another $200 on having it altered. Make sure you consider this cost in your wedding budget.
Your wedding photos are important as they will be the memories you carry with you for the years to come. Choose the best photographer you can, even if it costs you extra. You want to be sure that your wedding will be remembered fondly.
So now that you are better prepared, take what you have learned and start planning your wedding today. This article will benefit anyone’s wedding, yours as well as others.
