Three Items You Need Custom Made for Your Wedding

Weddings are one definite thing that people are not likely to want to save money on. It is every girl’s dream to have a fairytale wedding, with a beautiful white dress, in a nicely decorated church and with food that everybody will love. However, it is not only girls who care about little things like these; guys also like to wear something unique on this special day or they might want the car in which they will drive away with their new wife to be extraordinary, one that none of his friends had driven before. When it comes to your wedding, it is worth spending money on a few bespoke touches:

  1. The invitations

The invitations to your wedding are one of the most obvious things that you would have to get custom made. It has to contain your names, the wedding date, the location and it might also include a few personal touches, like your favourite quote. In an ideal case you should have a vision in your mind about the design that you want for your invites and then hire someone to make this happen for you.

  1. The photographer

A talented, ambitious and creative photographer is the dream of every bride. There are a few very talented photographers out there, and they are not hard to find either as most of them is on the most popular social media sites and they also have their own websites too. However, you might find the price that they are asking for rather high. Believe me, though, you will want those professionally done, creative shots for even a bigger amount of money that you originally wanted to spend on them. You, your family and your future children will all look at those pictures admiring them for ages after the wedding.

  1. . Outfits

Outfits, be that about the suit for the groom, the wedding dress of the bride or even the bridesmaid dresses, must be custom made for a wedding, if you are looking for perfection. Different stores do offer a huge variety of clothes, suits, wedding dresses and gowns, but let’s be realistic here, not everyone is a Size 6. And even if you have a perfect figure, there is no guarantee that you will like those things in the shops. When it comes to your wedding, you deserve to wear something that is the dress of your dreams. What better way to do this than picking the style out yourself and then get it made for you? It will be unique, just like you always wanted it and it will fit your perfectly.

Adding a bespoke touch to your wedding is the ideal way to add uniqueness to your special day that will stand out not only in your own memories, but in those of your guests as well!

Choosing A Wedding Venue

Weddings are one time affairs in life. Even if multiple marriages are becoming increasingly common in society today, most people have elaborate parties only on one great wedding of their life. In many communities, parents spend their lifelong savings on their son or daughter’s marriage. They want to ensure that everything is perfect on such a special day for their child or for their children. Thus, the wedding event , the decoration, food, guests and arranging for their place of stay are all given prime importance during a wedding mo matter which community one belongs to.

Wedding Budgets

Not everyone can afford an opulent wedding. Everyone plans their wedding as per the financial status of their family. Many have to plan and finance their own wedding when their parents are no longer alive or they are not in a position to finance the wedding of their son or daughter. One should first plan out the budget for the wedding and then list out the different expenditures that need to be made for the wedding. The church or the religious ceremony that needs to take place has to be given prime importance. Then come the attire and trousseau of the bride and the groom. When that is taken into consideration, one then plans the venue and decorations, reception dinner and other expenditure.

Wedding Planners

Those who have no constraints and wish to have a lavish wedding for they, for their sons or daughters, are engaging the services of wedding planers. Such individuals are usually part of the community that an individual belongs to and is experienced in making all necessary arrangements for the wedding. Such an individual will take care of all bookings and arrangements and they simply plan out the expenditure and ask the family to provide them the budget.

Choosing An Opulent Venue

Get It Right; Wedding Planning Essentials

Planning a wedding is by no means an easy task. For most couples, enlisting the help of friends and family will be ideal. This is a much more cost effective option than hiring a professional wedding planner, which will just add to their ever growing list of costs. Wedding planning essentials should be dealt with before anything else.

Transportation
Transportation is incredibly important. Many people have their wedding reception and their party, in two different places. There needs to be transportation in place to move selected guests, the bride and the groom from one location to another. This does not necessarily have to be the same expensive transport that brought them to the wedding. It is always worth booking this well in advance and having a backup plan in case there are any mishaps on the big day.

Venue
The venue will make or break the wedding day, so it is important to take everything into consideration when choosing it. Essentials to consider include parking facilities, the size of the rooms on offer, the price and the location. Obviously getting a reasonable mix is not easy. Visiting wedding venues will allow people to make some quick, but direct, comparisons. Price doesn’t mean everything and sometimes the venues in the lower price bracket are actually a lot more suitable.

Catering
The cost of catering for a wedding can spiral out of control. It is wise to employ a catering company, ask around for recommendations. Some choose to offer a 3 course meal as part of the day, but this is where the expense really starts to go through the roof. A much better idea is to offer a buffet type scenario which keeps both cost and wastage, to an absolute minimum. A catering company will be able to offer a tailored dinner plan, so just let them know what is needed.

Decoration
Before booking a venue, ask about their policy regarding the decoration of the room. Some venues are much more flexible than others, allowing a bride and groom to really put their personal touch, like adding stone coasters to the table, in a wedding venue. Of course, it is worth taking into account when the venue will allow decoration to begin. Being let into the room on the morning of the wedding to start decorating, is certainly not going to be ideal. If possible, ask the wedding venue if they have employees on hand that can get the job done.
