The bride has to wear white.
Yes, it’s traditional for the bride to wear white on their wedding day. But if white really isn’t your thing, you shouldn’t feel you have to wear it. There’s a reason why so many designers are making an array of different bridal gown colours from blush pink to gold. Choose a dress that suits you!
You can save so much money if you DIY all your decor!
Although doing-it-yourself decor is great and can be a lot of fun when you get together with friends and family, try to not take it all on. Often, people do not realize just how long it takes to create all that decor. All that time it takes into creating the decor really may not be worth it. Shop around for wedding and event decor rental businesses, as it can cost near the same to rent as it would be to make it yourself, plus it will save you many hours. You must also ask yourself if you will even have use for the decor items after the wedding. DIY is great, but try not to take on too much!
It’s your wedding day, you should spare no expense!
We’ve all heard of people spending all their savings or taking out loans for their wedding day. Let us help you out: don’t do that! We are all for lavish events, but you really don’t need to spend a massive amount of money in order to have a beautiful wedding. Starting off your marriage on the right foot, without a huge pileup of wedding debt, is the way to go.
The bride always get’s the last say.
Although it may just end up that in some relationships, the groom doesn’t want to have much say in the wedding prep, that isn’t usually the case. Together, the bride and groom should take this as a wonderful opportunity to work together on something special, taking one another’s ideas into consideration. It’s a pretty dated thought that the bride is the only one who cares about the wedding day.
Letting people sit where they want! No seating chart needed.
We can understand the appeal of not having to figure out where people will be seated, as some times it can be a long gruelling task - especially if your family has broken relationships. If you have a guest list over 25, it’s a much wiser choice to create a seating chart. Not only will this save some potentially uncomfortable situations, but it is also greatly helps with the overall atmosphere of the wedding. If guests are seated with people they know or will have things in common with, everyone will have a better time!
Your guests don’t expect thank you notes!
Usually, guests will have spent a lot of time, effort and money on celebrating the day with you, so the least you can do is thank them! Especially when they have given you a gift, travelled from out of town, etc. It doesn’t need to be an expensive task if you can’t afford it. In the age of technology, there is no excuse!
