Consider the venue when decorating.
The venue in itself will already end up costing you so much more money than you would probably think. As a matter of fact, it has been a common statistic for weddings in general to have the venue eat up roughly around 20% or perhaps even more of the total wedding budget. You can’t waste more money on the embellishment of the place. This is something that you can actually conveniently work around in by ensuring that you look for something that is already well decorated or something that is at least already decorated according to your liking so far. If you don’t really trust your own opinion or views on the matter, it would be wise for you to bring in professionals who have been working in the wedding industry for the longest time running from the wedding photographer Southampton, planner, and perhaps even the entertainers that you are bringing in. the more eyes you get to take a look at the venue, the better it will be for you because it technically means that you have fresh perspectives, perspectives that you would not have had if you trusted your own opinions alone.
Send the thank you notes early.
This is something that your guests will be able to appreciate the most. Attending a wedding, your wedding in particular, is bound to cost them a little bit of money on the side be it on the gifts that they give out to you and to your partner up to the transportation, clothes they wear, or even the airfare and accommodations that they have to pay for out of pocket if they happen to be abroad or something fairly similar to that. Make sure that the thank you notes have been arranged for and scheduled to be sent out ahead of time so that the guests receive them a day or two after the wedding. If you wait until after the honeymoon before you send them out, there wouldn’t be that much impact to them so think ahead of the game and send them out early while you still have the time to do so. Give your wedding photographer Southampton and other vendors thank you notes as well because without them, the wedding day would not have been possible.
Match the bouquet with the dress.
This is not a detail that most of the brides out there get to think about beforehand but this is something that is actually well worth noting because of the fact that it tends to affect the overall visuals. Your bouquet and your wedding dress are two of the most iconic elements that make up your wedding ensemble. To pick colors that clash or don’t match will be putting good money to waste so at least coordinate the colors as much as you possibly can.
Spend time with the guests.
Go around and thank them for their presence and for all of the troubles that they went through just to show their support for you and for your partner by being there during the day of your wedding. It’s tiring and smiling can take a toll on you at times but it is a small price to pay to show your gratitude to them.
