Planning a wedding is stressful no matter what size it is, or how much money you have. Follow the tips below to help make your wedding day as perfect as it can be. Remember, even if things do not go exactly as planned, you are still marrying the love of your life, and that is all that really matters.
Your wedding invitations should be one of the first things you do. You likely have the wedding date set, as well as where you are going to have it, so go ahead and get this out of the way. When choosing your custom wedding invitations, consider matching them to the colors you are using in your wedding.
It is common to choose cream, white, or ivory, paired with a gold or black font, but you can also add some colorful fonts to brighten up your invitations. If you do not want to do this, use colorful liners. The most important thing is for the invitation to be easy to read with the colors you choose.
The most pertinent information to include on the invitations is the name of the happy couple, as well as the place, date, and time of the wedding. Do not put anything about the wedding registry on the invitation. To make sure no one is confused, spell out all street names and states on the envelopes.
Choosing the flowers for your wedding bouquet can be difficult because there are so many to choose from. You need to make sure you choose flowers that will hold up. Some flowers that work well include roses, lilies, orchids, and carnations. If you are planning your wedding well in advance, consider growing these flowers yourself to save money, or ask a friend that has a green thumb to grow them for you. When it is time to pick the flowers from the garden, arrange them the way you want, and then wrap floral tape around them so they stay in place. When you finish making the bouquet, put it in a vase with water to keep the flowers fresh.
If you are having a florist make your bouquet, take a swatch or a picture of your dress with you so they can help you choose the right colors. You should also try to compliment the bridesmaids' dresses.
