If you are like most couples, you are probably looking forward to your wedding being the most exciting and joyous day of your life. On the other hand, it can be quite a lot of stress and hassle when you’re creating an unforgettable wedding, but that’s all part of the rigors we put ourselves through as a symbol of our undying devotion to one another. Trying to cram all the things you need to plan into a very short period of time can seem overwhelming, and I should know because I just finished planning a wedding of my own.
The most important thing that I wanted to achieve when I was putting everything together for the big day was making it really special for my guests. This seems to be overlooked by many brides; especially with television shows like “Bridezilla” dominating public opinion about what is acceptable behavior leading up to a wedding. I wanted to make sure that everyone really had a great time, so I went out of my way to plan each detail for everyone that was going to be present. I found some useful tips along the way, and I thought I’d share them with you today.
Wedding favors can make or break the mood at your wedding reception, but they can also make or break your budget if you’re not careful! I found that a good balance between price and the amount of fun the wedding favors offered was the perfect fit, and wedding sparklers fit that bill perfectly for me. Sparklers are both fun and affordable, plus they can really enhance the mood of any type of event. However, some venues don’t allow the use of sparklers so make sure you check with them before you make your purchase.
Video slideshows are a really great way to add a personal feel to your wedding and invite all of the guests into part of your life. When it comes time to choose a company to make your video slideshow, it’s important to consider several factors such as price, reputation, and the features they offer you. Additionally, you want to find a company that allows you to approve the slideshow before you pay for it. While not all companies offer this service, it will hold the company accountable and ensure that you get the quality you had in mind.
Likely to be the first wedding reception tradition you think about, having an open bar is a great way to let all of your guests know that you appreciate their attendance. When creating an unforgettable wedding and making sure your guests are the primary focus, an open bar is basically and essential component. That doesn’t mean you need to spend thousands of dollars and let your distant uncle drink 2 liters of single malt scotch, but having a keg or two of domestic beer that your guests can enjoy for free is a great way to make sure everyone can have a good time as the party continues into the evening.
