Your wedding should be the happiest day of your life, not a
frightening remembrance of the past. The difference between a
successful wedding and a disaster greatly depends on planning.
Successful planning the various details of your special day is
crucial. You should worry about not only the large details such
as the wedding gown but about the smaller ones such as your
Once you determined what method you'd like to use to announce
your engagement or wedding, you should start researching the
details. For example, if you'd like to announce your wedding in
a newspaper, you should find out about the procedure to submit
your ad. It is usually best to call the newspaper or visit their
Web site for more detailed information about wedding
announcements. By the time you are ready to place your add you
should have the following information available:
* wedding location,
* the bride's maiden
* your parents' names and where they live,
you will live when you are married.
Depending on how much
space is allocated by the newspaper, you might include some
additional information such as:
- names of your
bridesmaids or made of honor and their cities of residence,
your honeymoon destination,
- information about the bride's
and groom's place of birth,
- education such as schools
attended and place of employment or business.
your wedding day will be a smooth affair, but you should be
prepared for emergencies on your special day. Your made of honor
should be sure to have the following small but significant items
available for emergencies:
- clear nail
- needle and thread,
- a complete
list of phone numbers of all the involved parties such as
caterers and vendors.
Planning your wedding is a huge
undertaking, and you deserve a break. When you feel stressed by
planning your wedding, try to relax with some of your favorite
music or read a good book. Put your feet up and just relax. Just
closing your eyes, meditating can be a revitalizing experience.
Clearing your mind can be a great stress reducer.
wedding reception is one of the most important components of
your wedding day, so don't mess it up with a cash bar. Cash bars
are a sure sign of bad taste. Don't do it. Inviting people to
your wedding and then asking them to pay for their drinks is
impolite. If cost is an issue, invite less people or make other
arrangements. If you are on a budget, you might provide a
limited selection of alcohol.
If wedding planning is not your favorite pass time or you
just don't have time or afraid you might miss something
important for your wedding day, you may want to consider hiring
a professional wedding consultant. A wedding consultant can make
the wedding planning process not only easier, but also perhaps
more fun. After all, your wedding day should be the happiest day
of your life.
