How to Make Your Wedding Day Unforgettable
When you are getting married, there is a lot to arrange. At least, if you want to make it a beautiful and unforgettable day with family and friends. Even if you are celebrating your wedding in a relatively small circle, proper preparation is necessary. Some couples start planning a year in advance. This is not always necessary, but if you have very specific wishes, it's not a bad idea to start planning the first things for the wedding well in advance. Especially if you want to get married on a popular date. Friday weddings are still very popular because many people have Saturdays off, allowing them to party on Friday night without any restrictions. We would like to offer you some tips to help you enjoy your wedding day with ease.
The Most Important: Wedding Date and Venue
Naturally, one thing is of essential importance: When will the wedding take place? The date must be chosen first, and from there, you can start counting backward. When should things be arranged to be on time for the wedding date? The most important aspects are usually booking the venue where the wedding will take place and the reception location. Nowadays, you don't have to get married at the town hall; there are many beautiful venues available for weddings. Keep in mind that having a wedding at an off-site location is more expensive than having it at the town hall.
How Will the Wedding Be Celebrated?
You can celebrate a wedding in various ways. You can have a short reception or throw a lavish wedding party. If you invite your guests for the entire day, you need to plan for meals. Many venues that offer a banquet hall also have the option of a dinner or buffet. Consider how many people you want to invite for the meal; the kitchen would like to know well in advance how many people they need to accommodate. For the party, which usually starts around 8:00 PM after dinner, you can invite more people. You should also have an approximate number of guests for the evening party since the rented banquet hall will be tailored to the number of guests. Typically, you can assume that about 2/3 of the people you invite will actually attend. After all, there are always people who are unable to come or simply won't attend but may send their best wishes by mail or in some other way.
What Will the Groom Wear?
Once the date and venue are arranged, there is still a very important matter to take care of: The clothing of the bride and groom, as well as any bridal party attire. The groom will, of course, wear a handsome tailored suit, such as one from The Garrison. They offer an extensive collection of tailored suits in Peaky Blinders style. This style dates back to the 1920s and is currently back in fashion, thanks to the TV series of the same name. A tailored suit in this style doesn't have to be expensive. Even if you don't have an unlimited budget for the wedding and clothing, you can still wear a beautifully tailored suit that allows you to shine next to your beautiful bride.
Say Yes to the Dress
Before a bride says her vows, she must first say yes to the dress she will wear on the most beautiful day of her life. There are so many different bridal gowns available that there is truly a beautiful outfit for every bride. Even if you're not a "dresses" person and would prefer to get married in your skinny jeans. And even if you don't wear a size 6, like most Dutch women, you can still find a beautiful wedding dress that makes you look your best. In a bridal boutique, you can usually get good advice. The saleswoman will take into account your figure and appearance and make suggestions for a suitable dress if you find it difficult to choose one yourself. But if you already have a clear idea of what your dress should look like, that's perfectly fine too. If you know that the groom is going for the Peaky Blinders style, it's fitting to match, even though the dress traditionally remains a secret for the groom until he sees his bride during the ceremony.
How to Dress the Bridal Party?
If there are bridal party members present at the wedding, it is customary for them to be dressed in the same style as the bride and groom. So, the groomsmen in a mini version of the groom's suit, and the bridesmaids in a beautiful dress in the same style as the bride. Young bridesmaids, such as those of preschool age, can carry a basket of flowers to scatter. Older bridesmaids often like to carry a mini bridal bouquet. The groomsmen are naturally mostly cool and get to accompany the ladies.
What Else Needs to Be Arranged for the Perfect Wedding Day?
The wedding venue, banquet hall, clothing for the bride and groom, and any attire for the bridal party, as well as catering, are the most important things to arrange for the wedding day. However, there are also some "extras" that deserve attention. If you are getting married in a Peaky Blinders style, it is fun to decorate the party venue in this style. Often, you can do this a day in advance. If you have a wedding planner, and you should have one if you want a stress-free wedding day, they will take care of all these details. Even the favors you give to your guests to thank them for attending can be in this trendy vintage style; there are plenty of ideas available online. With these tips, your wedding day will be a beautiful day that you'll look back on with great joy.
