Call and see what is available. You may end up having to wait a year or more to get that desired location. You have so many things to book, and they all have to fall on the same day. That means a lot of phone calls and a lot of rearranging of schedules. You are going to need a lot of time to get all of this done! You have to book an officiant, a ceremony site, a reception site, potentially a caterer, photographer, videographer, baker, and a DJ or band, and they all Nike Air Max UK
have to have the same day available. That takes a lot of work, and a lot of time. Give yourself plenty of time to do all this, while still allowing for some time that isn't wrapped around wedding plans. Wedding planning burnout does happen! I know firsthand! I only had seven months to plan my wedding, and with doing everything myself, it was all I ever thought about. I had dreams and nightmares about wedding cakes, flower girls, you name it!
The Dress: Everything starts with the dress. The moment that ring is on your finger, you start to picture that perfect wedding dress. Strapless? A train? Bead work? Simple and elegant, or bold and daring? Take your time. There are thousands upon thousands of dresses out there, and you are only one person. Browse catalogues, tear the Nike Air Max 1 sale
pages out with the dresses you like the best. Try on dress after dress after dress. Take pictures, if they let you (A lot of places won't let you take pictures!!! As terrible as that sounds, it's true!) Bring someone with you while you shop for a dress. Make sure it's someone you trust, someone you know will be honest, and someone who doesn't mind hours of boredom as you go through the difficult maneuvers of trying on all those dresses. Pick something you love, but also remember, you will be in that dress for hours!!! Make sure you are comfortable and you can breath.
While it may make an amusing YouTube video, no one wants to pass out from lack of oxygen on their wedding day. Obviously, white is traditional for brides on their wedding day, but if you have a wilder, more vibrant personality, throw in a little color. A lot of dresses offer little touches of color that give it a personality all its own. My mother is an amazing seamstress, so we made my wedding dress. She handled the sewing machine, and I handled all Cheap Nike Air Max 90
the hand sewing work. Hours and hours of tedious labor, but it was worth it. I had a one of a kind dress that meant so much more to me than any dress I could have bought in a store. So, if you have a relative who has quite a talent behind a sewing machine, that could be an option for you. Fabric stores offer a wide variety of wedding dress patterns, special occasion fabric, lace, and everything you would need to make a one of a kind wedding dress, and it costs a lot less!!!
Seating:This may not end up being a big issue, but on several occasions, I have known it to be a HUGE issue. Is there enough room for everyone? That quaint, little, romantic wedding chapel may be just the perfect setting for your wedding, but will it hold everyone you Cheap Nike Free run
want to invite? Is it fair to tell some of your family that they can't come to the ceremony because there just isn't enough room? Do you feel comfortable doing it? That's up to you. It is something you have to think about. Take my sister's wedding, for example. She chose to get married at a little chapel on a gorgeous estate, but it only held like 80 people. She had invited about twice that. There were people standing here and there in the back, some had to stand outside, and hope they could see and hear what was going on.
Then there's the reception. Seating charts and name cards may not always be necessary, but I have found that in today's society, with divorce being ever more common, it becomes more and more necessary. Do you really want your parents sitting next to each other, or anywhere near each other, for that matter, when they haven't gotten Cheap Nike Free 3.0 V2 Men
along in twenty years? Uncle Bill can't stand Uncle Mike. Does it make sense to have them at the same table? Sometimes, a lot of problems and arguments can be averted by devising a seating chart. Work with the reception site, ask about the number of tables that will be in place, and try to keep everything fair. Everyone wants to sit up close to the bride and groom, but that simply isn't possible. Did an aunt or a good friend do something special to help with your wedding?
Maybe they should be rewarded with a seat closer to the head table. Fill in those gaps at tables with those people you know will be attending solo. When making a seating chart, draw up a basic floor plan of the reception hall, placing the tables where they will be going, and label the tables with a number system. Instead Women Nike Free 5.0 V3 UK
of writing everyone's name right on the floor plan, write them on little pieces of paper and arrange them around the tables. That way, you can move people from table to table, if you decide to make changes, or someone calls last minute and says they aren't going to make it. It is much easier than erasing names, and writing them in again.
Flowers:What is a wedding without flowers? Whether you go for simple and elegant, or you prefer a garden of flowers at your wedding, flowers are important. Choosing a florist can be difficult. Talk to friends and family. Talk to people you know that have gotten married recently. They can give Cheap Nike Air Max UK online
you insight into their experience. Did they like the florist they chose? Did they offer a discount or special prices on seasonal flowers? Flowers are expensive! It seems like the price automatically gets raised when you tell them that the flowers are for a wedding or a funeral. Find a florist that will deliver the flowers the day of the ceremony, that way the flowers are as fresh as possible. Check references. Like I said, talk to people you know. Just because a florist is offering you a bargain, doesn't always mean that it ends up being a bargain in the end.
I have heard of florists making substitutions on the flowers, even after a specific order was placed. Cheaper flowers for the same rate as the more expensive ones that were originally chosen. If you want pink roses, make sure you are going to get pink roses. My mother Nike Air Max 1 uk
and I ended up doing the wedding flowers ourselves. We did the bouquets, the vases for the church, and everything. We practically bought out the flower stands at the local grocery stores, farmer's markets, and such. We spent maybe $100 on flowers. We used all fresh flowers. We used silk flowers for the toss bouquet, and for the scattering petals for the flower girl. I got the flowers I wanted, and saved a fortune. Granted, it was a lot of work, but I enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun. For a simple, elegant bridal bouquet, you could end up spending very little money and have a very professional result.
The Wedding Party:Do you have five sisters/brothers that all expect to be in your wedding? Do you have a bunch of 'best friends' that assume they are going to be your best man/maid of honor? Deciding who makes the cut can be difficult. Don't let the feelings of others influence your decision, after all, it is YOUR wedding, not theirs. Did your sister recently get married, and you weren't even in the wedding party? Maybe you two aren't as Cheap Nike Air Max 90 uk
close with each other than one of your other sisters or your best friend. You may want to have six bridesmaids just to keep everyone happy, but do you and the groom have six men you can call on to fill the groomsmen roles? There are expenses associated with being a bridesmaid/groomsman. Can your brother afford that tux rental? Can your BFF shell out the money for that bridesmaid dress? You may want them in your wedding, but if they can't afford it, that leaves you with two options; either you help them with the cost of everything or you ask someone else.
When selecting bridesmaid dresses, think about the people you are going to have in your wedding party. Pick dresses that are similar in style to your dress. Find dresses that offer different looks in the same style, to accommodate each person's tastes and body types. You may want everyone in strapless dresses, but your sister may not feel comfortable wearing a strapless gown. The dresses should all be the same color, and same basic style, but offer choices. The Cheap Nike Blazers online
tuxes are an easier task. Select simple tuxes or suits with colors that compliment the color scheme of the wedding. Basic black, white or dark grey are the best options for the tux color, and the ties, vests and such should be in one of the colors of the wedding. Make sure that the groom stands out from the groomsmen. This can be done with either a different color of tux, or different color of tie or vest.
For example, you could have the groomsmen in grey tuxes with a colored vest and tie, while the groom is in black with the same color of vest and tie. Just make sure the groom isn't mistaken for the best man. Money:Everything in a wedding costs money! EVERYTHING!! The only thing that doesn't cost money is the love you share Cheap Nike Blazer High Men
with the person you are marrying. If the wedding industry could find a way to charge you for that, I am sure they would. Generally, it is customary for the parents of the bride to pay for a majority of the wedding, while the family of the groom pays for the rehearsal dinner and the alcohol or flowers. That all depends on traditions. There are different traditions for different religions and cultures. These days, those 'rules' are a little looser. Many couples pay for their own weddings, or the bride's family or groom's family foots the entire bill.
This is the part where math is involved! I know, it's scary!! I hate math. Find out what everyone is able to contribute financially. You may want that grand wedding, with a reception at that really fancy reception hall, but it just might not be in the budget, or maybe you need to take some time to save up a little more of the green stuff. Save the loans for buying that first house! Plan ahead! Buy those things that aren't gonna go bad way ahead of time. Thank you cards, little boxes or bags for Cheap Nike Blazer Low Women
favors, and place cards can be bought early on and stashed away. Buying things over time can ease some of the financial burden. Doing things on your own can help cut costs, as well. I got lucky! My mom is a great seamstress, so we worked together and made all the dresses for the wedding, we made the cake (that was an interesting experience! I have learned that I hate fondant!), I bought a kit and printed my own invitations, did the flowers, and made all the favors myself.
