Our good friend Tricia Dever of “Always Eventful” Wedding and Event Planning sent us this small sample of many of her qualified tips to think about when you begin planning your wedding.
Flower Girls/Ring Bearers:
Kids are adorable as flower girls and ring bearers but they are also unpredictable. To alleviate the stress of, “will they go down the aisle,” have them go down the aisle AFTER the bridesmaids so they can watch others go first, but BEFORE the Maid of Honor – she can then sweep them down the aisle if they stall halfway down. The worst thing is for the brides walk to begin and all the guests are still looking at the Flower girl who is now sitting in the middle of the aisle!
Many brides get engaged and decide that they must do a thousand things immediately. While it is true, that wedding planning can be stressful, it should be exciting too. First thing I recommend is to put together a tentative guest list so you know how many guests you can expect and a preliminary budget so that you know about how much money you have to spend for each area of the wedding. Then start booking your major vendors first – that is the reception facility, ceremony location, photographer, videographer, musicians, florist…and wedding coordinator!
Making a WOW event:
It’s the details that people will remember – the personal guestbook, the menu cards, the toast given by the groom to his lovely bride. Another way to make a WOW event is in lighting – candles and colored lighting really make a reception facility pop!
