15 WEDDING RULES every bride needs to follow
For the bride and groom, wedding planning is a difficult task. It has to be good because this day won’t come again in their life. Nowadays, weddings are becoming a business. People arrange parties and waste lots of money on these events.
These weddings are different as compared to weddings 30 years ago. But there are some rules that every bride needs to follow to make their special day tension free. So, here are these 15 wedding rules that every bride needs to follow:
1. SET A BUDGET:
The making of the budget for your wedding looks so easy because, at the time of planning, you are considering only the major things like Venue, Wedding Photographer and Videographer, Florals, and Catering services.
But you don’t realize that the small items are those who make the budget out of control like decorations for a cake table, candy bar, gift for party, etc. you need to keep an eye on these kinds of expenses to control your budget.
2. BRIDAL PARTY BUDGET:
The bridal party is an extra expense that you need to bear on your wedding. It is a wedding season right now, so everyone is getting married at the same age as yours. That’s why you can easily spot many people who are attending more than one wedding this summer.
It’s just a saying that girls can wear the same dress more than one time on events. They need a new dress every time they are going to attend an event. This is the extra cost that you have to bear.
3. SEND A SAVE THE DATE TO SOMEONE? HAVE TO SEND AN INVITE:
Send the date is not an invitation to the wedding. It’s just a way to tell your friends and family that you have picked a date for your wedding and they should mark that date.
But the problem is you don’t have any idea who to send this save the date because if you send them this, then you need to invite them to your wedding as well. And if you don’t give invitation, this might not be well for your relationship with them since you have made their hopes high.
4. NO NEW FACIAL PRODUCTS TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE WEDDING:
Beauticians can only cover up the stain and spots on your face. If you have pimples or something like that, they can hide all these with the help of makeup.
But if you are allergic to any facial product, they can’t do anything. So stick to your regular stuff, and do not try new things before your special day. If you did, this might spoil your look. .
5. NO CRAZY SPRAY TAN:
Avoid spray tanning before your wedding. You might end up look bizarre. You look great as you are. You don’t need any tanning to change your skin color.
6. SEATING CHARTS (OR AT LEAST RESERVED SEATING):
One of the most stressful things for the bride is to make a seating plan for her guests. It will create lots of problems if it doesn’t manage properly. Things will become complex if the bride’s parents are divorced because they don’t want to see each other.
That’s why you need to make a smart seating plan, which creates a pleasant environment among your family. You need to arrange separate tables for your parents and grandparents, and the rest of the people can sit wherever they want.
In most cases, young people pick the tables near the dance floor and bar, and the elders sit in a quiet place and have a chit chat with their family members.
7. TAKE CARE OF VENDORS:
The wedding planners are important as much as your guests. Because you hired them for their professional work, and they are putting their full efforts, energies, and time to make your wedding day special.
It is not the way to treat them like you order your staff to serve them food and drinks. Give them the importance and arrange tables for them near the stage so they can also enjoy the full event.
8. LOVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER:
A photographer has the same importance as your wedding planner. After the vendor who arranged your wedding, a wedding photographer is a person with which you are going to spend your day.
Your mentality and nature must match with the photographer. Otherwise, you both will be uncomfortable with each other. It will affect your photos, and it is obvious that no one wants to ruin his/her wedding photos.
Wedding photographs are very important for the rest of your life because you can rejoice those moments again with these pictures.
9. BE ABLE TO SIT IN YOUR DRESS:
The Comfort level is the priority of everyone when they are looking for a wedding dress. You need to find a dress which allows you to sit comfortably as well as you look beautiful. Make sure that you can breathe in your dress easily.
10. SAY NO TO UNCOMFORTABLE HEELS:
Wearing high heels at the wedding is now a trend. There is no need to follow this trend because your feet will give you nothing but pain.
You are wearing a long wedding gown which won't allow your shoes to be seen. Even these heels will not be visible in your wedding photos too.
11. FIRST LOOK DECISION:
One of the hot trends in the wedding is first look, and now it is becoming a tradition. If you have made your decision to do the first look, I guarantee that you won’t regret it.
But at the end of the day, no one is going to force you to do this. It is totally up to you and your partner.
12. DON’T FEEL PRESSURE ABOUT RECEPTION TRADITIONS:
There is no need to take the pressure of reception traditions. If you don’t want to do the dollar dance or bouquet toss, then there is no need to force yourself. It’s your wedding; you can do whatever you wish to, enjoy in your own way. These traditions are done by the older crowd who wants to do all this stuff. If you really want to enjoy in a new way, then play the shoe game. Your entire crowd will love it.
People make a big mistake when they don’t eat on their wedding day. Most people say that even after two years of their marriage, they didn’t enjoy their wedding day meal. This is not good because it’s your special day.
You need to enjoy every moment, everything on your big day. Because, at the end of the day, you will remember this as the ultimate celebration of your life
14. GO WITH THE FLOW:
According to Murphy’s Law of Wedding, if anything that can go wrong on your wedding day, it will go wrong. You cannot undo that thing. At that time, the best thing you can do is to let it go. And enjoy the moment. Because this is your special day and it will not come again in your life
15. SEND THANK YOUS:
There is a tradition of sending thanks to those people who attended your wedding. Whether it’s a photo card or just a traditional card, you have to send thank you cards to your guests who took their precious time for you and bring you gifts.
