Weddings are memorable experiences that take a lot of planning and preparation. The weeks leading up to your wedding can be very stressful. If you plan well, there aren’t many things that can go wrong. Here are some suggestions to help you in your planning efforts.

Before the wedding practice walking down the aisle. This needs to be done where the wedding is going to be held so that you’re familiar with the specific area and flooring as well as how your shoes react. This makes sure you’re comfortable during the big day.

When you decide who you want to give the speeches during the reception, ask them to read them to you so you know they are appropriate. Remember that you’ll have people there from all generations, so keep the jokes appropriate.

You won’t get a second chance to get your wedding pictures right, so make sure these memories are recorded the right way. Even though it can me costly, your best bet is to have a professional photographer take your pictures so you get the best quality possible.

You need to tell your DJ what you do want to be played, but also make sure he or she understands what not to play. It could be rap, metal or country-western. Tell your spouse-to-be so that he knows too.

When choosing a venue for the reception, be sure to account for enough space to dance. There are few things that can suck the fun out a reception like not having the room to bust a move can, so do what you need to do to give you and your friends the space you need to boogie!

It can be nerve-racking to walk down the aisle with so many people watching you, so make sure to practice before the big day in a full-length mirror. Go with flats if you’re worried about twisting an ankle. Having less than sexy footwear is an easy trade-off for not falling on your derriere!

Perhaps enlist the help of a friend to help you to carry all your camera gear around. They can also be of assistance in rounding everyone up for the group photographs, and this will make sure no one is left out.

If you invite people to an exotic destination wedding, they will likely want to stay for part of your honeymoon time as well, since they are already there. Everyone can save if you stay longer, as you will likely get a great discount from the hotel. Not only will they have a great day to remember, but also a great vacation too.

Schedule your reception for midday. People drink less during this time and you will not spend as much on alcohol. Having your wedding during the midday can also cut food costs and even get you a discount for booking during the day.

Marriage is what a wedding is all about and this is the time when a person marries the person they are meant to spend their life with. This means that you know them and their faults and are ready to go through thick and thin with them, even when the going gets really tough. Hopefully, with the tips above, your special wedding day will come and go with ease and leave wonderful memories that last a lifetime.
