If there are wedding bells in your future, are you getting the least bit nervous? In the event the answer is yes, don’t feel alone.
For countless couples going from engaged to married, there can be all kinds of nerves.
To start, there is the idea of throwing that perfect wedding.
Now, you may not think it needs to be perfect, but family and friends around you start to mount the pressure. Before you know it, one or both of you begin to sweat bullets.
You might also be watching social media and other outlets discussing weddings. Above all else, don’t let it get to either of you.
Your best move at that point and time is to remember one very important thing. This (your wedding) is your day to have fun and celebrate. Don’t let others dictate what is to happen.
With that in mind, are you ready to throw the best wedding possible?
Use a Myriad of Resources for Wedding Planning
To have as close to perfect a wedding as one can have, keep in mind these pointers:
Above all else, what kind of wedding ceremony do you both want?
Though you will get input from parents, siblings, and friends, you make the final decisions. Whether that means a large ceremony or a more intimate one, you make the call.
Sure, some people may be down they did not get an invite, but they in most cases will understand.
Also decide where you’d feel most comfortable in getting married at.
That could mean a church, your parent’s backyard, or even a beach wedding at sunset. Don’t feel pressured to have the ceremony you do not want to have to please others.
There is no set rule that the bride always has to wear a white dress or the groom has to sport a tuxedo etc.
Sure, having the woman in white and the man in a dark suit or tux is oftentimes tradition, but you make the decision.
This call also extends to what you’d like the bridal party to wear.
Depending on the makeup of your party, you might opt for something out there or stick with tradition.
Either way, give it plenty of time and thought so you can always change your mind if need be.
Although most couples exchange wedding rings, would you be mad if your husband-to-be didn’t wear a ring? Often, women would not be too pleased with such a decision.
With that in mind, selecting the right men’s wedding bands doesn’t have to be a difficult process.
One way to go about this is by turning to the Internet for information.
Most jewelers today have more info on their websites about wedding band selections. As a result, you and your groom-to-be can take that info before visiting local jewelry shops. The more details you have ahead of time, the better prepared you are to make the best ring selections.
Depending on the costs, some couples may decide to scale things back a tad when it comes to the reception.
Much like the wedding ceremony itself, you should always do what the two of you want.
The reception is a time to celebrate the happy couple. That said don’t forget you still need to have a fair amount of money on hand for the all-important honeymoon.
If you do decide to go all out on the reception, by all means do not feel guilty. You know better than anyone else what your respective financial means are.
Also, keep in mind that this is your one and only wedding if everything in life goes according to plan. Splurging on top foods and drinks is your right if you so choose.
Having the best wedding possible is something many women dream of.
Assuming you’re one of them, get working on those plans today.
