When planning your wedding, it is very important that even if it is your second time getting married, your wedding still remains a very important day in your life. It’s the day many little girls have dreamed of for years, and finally that day is going to become a reality. You want this day to go by smoothly and you want yourself and guests to leave the wedding thinking “wow, we had a great time!” planning a wedding can also be very hectic and stressful. With that in mind, it is important to plan ahead of time. Give yourself time for things are always bound to go wrong having a backup plan is certainly key.
A wedding is not just any ordinary occasion, but a day where you and your spouse promise one another that you will always be there for them through think and thin. Over the years, wedding ceremonies have changed dramatically. Today, many couples may choose to do things a little differently to make their wedding that much more memorable and special to them. Couples want to be more involved to make sure that their weddings truly reflect them and their personalities. Ways a couple can personalize their ceremony by writing their own vows to one another. Some choose specific songs they want played while their walking down the aisle while others like to stick to tradition.
Family members and friends always want to get involved in the planning and make their ideas work, even if it’s not what the couple wants. Family should only really be consulted when making bigger more important decisions such as the date, time, place and location of the wedding. This is done to ensure that they don’t already have something important on that day. Now, I’m not saying done accept help from family and friends. In fact, the help of other will certainly reduce your stress level significantly. The important thing is to assign specific roles to people so that they are certain of what is expected of them. Honor special people in your life by giving them a job that you know will mean a lot to them. For instance, ask your favorite aunt to go dress shopping with you and your mother.nto only will guests feel flatter that you offered them this duty, but they will also mostly likely help make sure the service at the reception is running smoothly.
The following are just a few jobs that you can assign to family and friends:
- - Receiving and recording gifts at the reception
- - Supervising the signing of the guest book.
- - Watch the money box.
- - Hold the main door open for guests.
- - Making sure guest have found their assigned table/seats
- - Greeting guests
- - Encouraging people to dance
- - Mingling with other

The best thing a couple can do to make sure that their wedding runs smoothly and things aren’t left to the last minute causing more stress on the couple is PLAN AHEAD! As soon s a couple can, they should decide on exactly what type of wedding the couple wants, where they would like it to be held, who will facilitate it and approximately how many guest they plan on inviting. Second, a couple should discuss their budget and see approximately how much they want to spend on their attire, transportation, food, etc. next, the couple can shop for the engagement ring.
Contacting city hall or county building before hand to see the requirements for marriage license is a great idea. Usually, a license certificate can take up to two to three weeks and it may be valid for sixty days.
Wanting to please everyone at your wedding is natural. Just remember, you simply cannot please everybody. You can listen to different ideas that people may have, however that does not mean it your final decision or choice.
It’s natural for a couple to get extremely excited about something and make very unwise decision. When planning a wedding you’ll start to see that there’s so much out there for the couple to choose from. For instance, lets take transportation. You could get a traditional limo, exotic car, horse and carriage the list goes on. The best thing for couples to do is to EXPLORE all their possible ideas first before making a final decision. Don’t just say yes to something because you think it’s the best. Chances are the first thing you see will always seem to be the best to you. Making quick decisions without carful though can cause things to go wrong. Also, if you have also left a deposit for a particular item, you may feel like you are now stuck! So remember, explore your ideas and think things over. Enjoy the planning process. Don’t let it get the best of you.
