Wedding Day Tips

Wedding Day

Planning your wedding day takes time, and can sometimes become a little stressful with so many little details to finalize.  Your wedding day has arrived and it is one of the most important days of your life so far! Preparation is key and here are some key tips to take into consideration.

 

1. Guest List & Creative Invitations

​Choosing who is going to be by your side on your wedding day is very important, and not as easy as you may think. First things first, figure out who you want at your wedding and who you don’t want at your wedding. With the help of your significant other, come up with a guest list. Give your guests at least 8 weeks’ notice, that way they have no excuses to miss out on your special day.

Here are a few ideas for your “Save the Date” invitations:

  • Add a pop of color
  • Keep it simple
  • Use a scratch-off to reveal the date
  • Include a photo of the two of you

2. Beautiful Venue & Location

​Whether you dream of getting married to your fiance in a church or on a beach, we have you covered!

3. Choosing the Perfect Band or DJ

​Choosing the right band or DJ to perform at your wedding is very important. You want to hire a group that has experience, stability, and a good reputation.
  • provide a variety of music genres
  • are fun, professional, and entertaining
  • will have your guests on the dance floor all night long

It is a good idea to see a band live before you book them for your wedding. Come See Us at our next event and see for yourself! SEE US LIVE Or CONTACT US

5. Delicious Desserts

​Stand out and try something new! Traditional wedding cakes are good, but have you ever been to a wedding that serves macaroons?!

6. Post-Party Snacks

​If you want your wedding to stand out from the rest, switch it up and bring out some yummy snacks towards the end of your reception. This idea is unique and the possibilities are endless.

The best way to make this day memorable for both you and your guests is to be unique. It is not that often that you hear of food being served at the end of the reception. By this time of the night, your guests are most likely hungry (and drunk). Give them a snack to take home, and a night to remember!

7. Your Dream Wedding Dress

​Picking out the perfect wedding dress is harder than you think. It may take some time.

8. Choose a Photographer

​The best way to remember your wedding day years from now, is by hiring someone to capture every special moment.

9. Videographer

​One of the biggest regrets that couples have is not having a video made of their special day. If a picture says a thousand words, then a video must say over a million. Hire a videographer who will turn your wedding day into an amazing movie!

10. Incorporate Social Media & Technology

​One of the hottest new wedding trends is incorporating social media and technology into the mix by using Hashtags, a location “check-in'”, go-pro’s, drones and more! Over 50% of couples are now creating their own “Wedding Hashtags”. This is a great way to look back at photos that your guests posted from the wedding all in one album.

 

11. Come Up With a Theme

​Whether you are having a summer wedding, fall wedding, or any season then you are going to want a theme that sets the tone and ties everything together. Whether it be a color scheme, or other trends,

12. Wedding Reception Entrance

​Wedding entrances are a special way to stand out on your wedding day. H

13. DIY Wedding

​We all know weddings can get to be expensive. The best way to save a little money and have fun preparing for your wedding is by DIY (doing it yourself). By DIY, you will be able to spend a lot more of your budget on other things (such as your venue or wedding band ).

By DIY, you are also able to make your day much more personalized and special. Although it is certainly easier to have things made for you, it is much more fulfilling to make it yourself with the help of your friends and family and really make your day unforgettable.

14. Decorations, Flowers & Lighting

​Simple decorations can go a long way, and have your wedding guests raving. By hiring a wedding planner or designer, you can ensure that your day will be just as beautiful as you are.

15. Final Preparations & Tips

​As exciting as your big day is, you may get caught up in all the excitement and forget some key essentials. One of the biggest things that will make your day unforgettable is if something goes wrong, here are some tips to make sure everything runs smoothly on your big day.
  • Create a day-of Itinerary
  • Pack an emergency kit (just in case)
  • Make sure you eat!
  • Arrange transportation

16. Goodbyes & Thank-You’s

​Last but not least, is sending out thank you cards to those who were able to make your day special. Don’t put it off, start sending out your “thank you’s” once you’re all unpacked from your honeymoon. When writing your letters…

  • Keep it short & simple
  • Personalize the message
  • Keep track of who gave you what gifts

If you are not sure what to say exactly, Keep it short & simple and sincere; “Thank you for joining us to celebrate our big day,” mention what they got you, and say how thankful you are that they were able to make your day special
