Every woman dreams of her perfect wedding day – with the sun shining, the handsome groom, the flowers perfect and full of color, the breathtaking wedding dress, the ideal venue, and finally, the fabulous cake. Here are a few things you need to consider to make sure your day goes as planned.
Don’t try and control the uncontrollable
For a start, there’s the weather. You can choose a day in spring, fall, or even summer but can not guarantee the perfect sunny day, as it may still rain. In truth, any bride who has been unlucky with the weather would probably tell you on the day it didn’t matter too much. Plus, photos can be taken indoors anyway.
As for the groom, if you’re marrying him, chances are you find him attractive, and that is all that matters, and any man would make sure he looks his best for his bride.
Of course, there is more to planning the perfect wedding than just dreaming (and a lot more money involved). Getting a personal loan is a popular financing option. With a personal loan, you borrow a set amount at an interest rate that is typically fixed and pay it off with monthly installments over a fixed payment period. This is a great way to help you fund your big day.
Now, the things you can do something about
You may do better to choose the venue first and then pick a church or registrar’s office close by so your guests won’t have far to travel for their wedding breakfast.
So what do you want from your venue? Well, obviously good food, maybe a fantastic outdoor area for photos, and an inside one just in case of rain. But in addition to that, would you require rooms for your guests, so there is no worry of people driving after your evening celebrations? Would you prefer a location with age and character, or do you prefer modern and sleek?
Then there is the point of how you and your wedding party will arrive in style for your wedding and then afterward for your wedding breakfast. Are you a horse and carriage type person, a vintage vehicle, a modern stretch car, or maybe you would go for something unique for you and your groom?
Choosing the perfect flowers for bouquets, whether to choose fresh or silk flowers can depend on what you want to do with them after the wedding. Silk flowers can be made into an arrangement for keeping ware as fresh will only last a short time.
You will need to decide on the colors of the bridesmaids’ dresses if you choose to have any, and then select colors that compliment or contrast depending on how bold you want your wedding to be. However, colors that compliment your bridesmaids’ complexions and your own would add a subtle wow for the wedding photos.
When choosing a wedding dress, also think about the color as well as the style. The traditional white can look very harsh, whereas off-white ivory can look much softer. If you want a unique look or a bold statement, a vibrant color or even a floral could be an exciting move.
Everybody remembers the wedding cake as much as the beautiful dresses and the wonderful bride, groom, and bridesmaids. Choosing how many tires the cake has is just as important as the look, style, and recipe. Having a cake with as many tiers as possible can look excessively ugly and whereas only having a couple of tiers for a large wedding party may look tight and unprepared, so it’s important to get this right.
