The Perfect Wedding: From Dream To Reality
Stephen Romero - August 5, 2020
Whether you are part of the guest list or the wedding party, there are things you should know about attending a wedding before the day arrives. You can use these wedding tips to understand better your role in the wedding and how to make the special day even more special than it already is.
If you want an outdoor wedding, think about the weather. Make sure your guests have enough shade or protection from the wind or rain depending on the season. Do not impose a dress code that is inappropriate for the season. Follow weather forecasts and let your guests know what the weather is going to be like.
Look into what other events may be going on in your city at the time of your wedding. For example, if it happens to be on the weekend of the annual marathon, it might not affect getting a reception hall, but it would prevent your out of town guests from possibly getting a hotel room.
Why not provide a tour of the area to the guests of your destination wedding? You can go along too and have a fun-filled stress relieving day with your friends and family. Everyone will be able to enjoy the trip and get to know the area you’re visiting a little bit better.
The day before you have your wedding, you should pamper yourself as much as possible by going to a spa for a massage. This will allow you to reduce the stress and tension of the days leading up to your wedding so that you feel more comfortable walking down the aisle.
If you are stuck on selecting a theme for your wedding, first consider the season in which you are getting married. If it is during the winter, have a winter wonderland themed wedding. If it is during the spring, have a garden themed wedding. Be creative and match it to the season.
When you arrive to your reception, make sure to make the rounds to all the tables to greet your guests. By the end of the night you should have spoken with each guest at least twice, so take that into consideration as you plan your events for the evening. Don’t forget to say goodbye as each guests leaves if you can.
If you don’t think your wedding guests will participate in a traditional part of the wedding, then skip it. If no one likes to dance, especially the bride or groom, then don’t force them to. If you’re only having married women in attendance, don’t have a bouquet toss at all.
Having kids at your wedding? Have you considered what they’re going to eat? Let your caterer know how many children are going to be at the reception and ask him to prepare a kids meal just for them. They’ll be excited to get familiar food and you’ll enjoy the savings based on smaller portions.
There are many things to consider whether you are a guest to a wedding or in the wedding party. Making sure that the wedding is a great day to remember for you personally means using the advice in this article to get a better understanding of what is expected.
