Keep in close contact with your florist

The last thing you want is to arrive at your wedding venue only to discover the flowers are still in transit. That could ruin your day, and it might add lots of stress to the proceedings. Considering that, you just need to find a reputable flower expert who never arrives late. You can either search Google or visit website recommendations made by your friends. Once you choose the flowers you want, it’s just a case of keeping the professional’s number close at hand so you can call them the day before your event and ensure they know the best time to turn up at the venue. Ideally, florists should get there at least a couple of hours before the happy couple.

Double check everything with your caterers

If you arrive at your reception venue to find the tables bare and the caterers nowhere to be seen, there is a reasonable chance you’re going to have a breakdown. That is especially the case if you’ve spent a small fortune to provide meals for all your guests. Do yourself a favor and call your caterers every day for at least a week before your reception is due to take place. You can then remind them of the time you want the food to arrive on many occasions. When all’s said and done, caterers have a reputation to uphold, and so they will do everything possible to ensure they don’t ruin your wedding.

 

Ensure the best man knows you’ll lose it if he loses your ring

Lastly, every bride worries about what might happen if the best man loses their wedding rings. While that doesn’t happen very often; it’s not an impossibility as you will see if you click here or search online. So, pull the best man to one side a few weeks before the event and let him know how angry you’re going to become if he loses that essential band. Either that or give the rings to your kids. With a bit of luck, you’ll manage to scare the guy that much that he won’t let the ring out of his sight. If nothing else, at least you won’t have to worry as much after giving that warning.

If you use the tips and advice from this article; you should manage to plan and execute the perfect wedding day with your partner. Now all you have to stress about is choosing the best honeymoon location, but that’s something you’ll have to manage alone. St Lucia is always a top choice during the summer, but you should go somewhere that suits both parties. Whatever happens, be sure to love each other and stay together forever!

If you’re someone who likes to take an ethical and eco-conscious approach to life, you probably don’t want things to be any different when it comes to your wedding. Your big day can be just as ethical as anything in the rest of your life and still be magical too. You’re not the only couple who want an ethical wedding, so you’re sure to find lots of options for vendors, materials, and much more. To successfully plan an ethical wedding, you need to be ready to do some research and ask lots of questions. Keep the following points in mind to get started.

Start with the Rings

The rings you choose are a symbol of your love. They’re one of the material things that will last beyond your wedding day, intended to be worn for your whole marriage. Whether you have an engagement ring or you go straight for the wedding bands, you should think about how and where they’re made. An ethical jewelry maker like Brilliant Earth can make sure you get rings that use ethical stones and metals. Some ethical stones are carefully sourced, some are second-hand, and others are made in labs. When you choose rings, remember to think about durability too.

Keep Things Small

One of the best ways to keep the impact of your wedding at a low is to have a small affair. While a big wedding might appeal to some, not everyone wants hundreds of guests. If you keep things small, you could find that it’s a lot less stressful to get everything sorted out. Of course, you might have some trouble narrowing down the guest list if you’re not sure who to invite. You might also have to be careful of people getting offended because they didn’t receive an invitation. But if you have a small wedding, you can reduce waste, energy use, and various other things to reduce the impact of the day.

Personally, this route is not for me. But I’m off-setting that by shopping small. A lot of things for my wedding are coming from Etsy shops, and my flowers are coming from a family-owned local business. This leads me to the next point…

Vet Your Vendors Carefully

Choosing your wedding vendors is something you’ll have to be careful about if you want an ethical wedding. One of the easiest ways to approach it is to look for vendors who advertise themselves as ethical. If they’re willing to say outright that their practices are ethical, they should be able to explain how. Hopefully, they go out of their way to conduct their business in an ethical way and ensure they can fulfill their promises.

Choose Ethical Clothes, Materials and Supplies

When you’re finding supplies for your wedding, especially if you’ve chosen a more DIY route, you can be careful to select ethical materials too. Don’t forget to consider your outfits as well, especially your wedding dress. If you don’t want to rent a dress, you could consider wearing an upcycled dress or a secondhand one, or simply buying one you can wear again. Even your invites and other paper materials can be made from recycled paper and card.

An ethical wedding doesn’t need to be hard to do. If you know what you want, you can usually find it.

Your wedding is one of the biggest, most memorable days of your life. And while that is obviously exciting, it means there’s an enormous amount of stress and pressure to get it right. Even the calmest and laid back woman can turn into bridezilla with a wedding on the horizon, and so it’s important to do what you can to keep stress to a minimum. Here are a few ways you can do exactly that!

Bride Robe

Start Early

Once you’re engaged, chances are you will be keen to get the wedding set up. However, trying to get everything done within a short space of time will make it all much more difficult. If you want to enjoy the process and get things done with as little stress as possible, give yourself more time. Book the wedding for a year away instead of six months, or eighteen months away instead of a year. In the grand scheme of things, those six months won’t make a difference when you’ve been happily married for years. But in the here and now, you have more chance to save, plan and get the details right. Your first step would be to set the date, that way you know exactly how much time you’re working with. And then start making arrangements right away, even if it’s just research to begin with. You will want to view portfolios and read reviews from your vendors. You will want to start researching different styles of wedding dresses, or maybe start a health and fitness regime, so you feel your very best on the big day. Starting early gives you more opportunities to decide exactly what you want, to get things booked up and change your mind on different ideas if necessary.

Go All Inclusive

You already have a million things to do when it comes to planning your wedding. Buying rings, the dress, practicing your first dance, working out seating arrangements and everything else. So instead of giving yourself more things to do, why not look into all-inclusive wedding packages? That way your venue, the food, DJ and music, cake, centerpieces and all of the personnel are taken care off. It can be a huge weight off your mind, and you know that everything will be beautifully executed with no additional hassle to you. On the day of your wedding, you can focus on getting yourself ready and enjoying the experience without worrying about arranging additional things.

Go Online

Wedding stationery is expensive. Writing out and posting hundreds of invitations (along with all of the other pieces of stationery you need to send for a wedding) can be a big use of time and money. In this modern day in age, everything is done online so why not take advantage of this? If you set up a wedding website you can provide guests with everything they need, without having to send out multiple pieces of paper. You could include your wedding venue details and the time of each event. A map and directions to get there, your gift list, table plans and anything else you’d like to include. There are free wedding website templates you can use online which make the process so much quicker and easier for you.

If you’re getting married soon, you might be full of excitement about all the wedding shopping you’ve got to do. Have you worked out your budget yet? Even if you’re following tradition and letting your Dad pay for it, it’s a good idea to discuss the bottom figure with your husband-to-be. After all, this is his wedding too, so you’re buying for two (plus guests!)

One thing you’re probably not going to do together is shop for your wedding dress. However, there are no traditions preventing you from shopping for all the other outfits as a couple. This could be quite helpful for you as you’ll be able to gauge what styles he likes. This might be good for figuring out which bridal outfit you should pick too!

Personalized Wedding Ring Box

One of the first things you’re likely to pick out is the rings. It’s often a good idea to pop into your local mall and check out the jewelry stores. You can also find more men’s wedding bands here: http://weddingbandsforboth.com/tungsten-wedding-bands-for-men/ might offer some different styles or ideas. You don’t have to pick matching rings if you both have differing tastes. Don’t forget to have them engraved with messages of love for each other. Order this early as it can take a little while to complete.

Whether your groom is into flowers or not, he’ll have a good idea which flowers he likes. This is especially important when you’re picking the buttonholes and table decorations. He might have a better idea which flowers his mother might like for her outfit as well. If he’s not really into flowers, ask him what kind of decorations he might prefer. Remember, you have a whole venue to prepare, so his help is very much needed!

Do you have any ideas in mind for your arrival at the ceremony? You might want to choose the car yourself, but if you’re both going to ride in it on the way back, then your groom’s input could be a good idea. Of course, if the ideas are very different, you might have to compromise! Perhaps you could order two cars? This would depend on your budget, but it’s a good way for you both to get what you want.

Would you be comfortable with letting him make big purchase decisions for the wedding? Many brides enjoy taking on all the wedding planning themselves. But if you’re uncomfortable with the idea of someone else taking the reins, maybe he is too. Sharing the decision-making could help you both get exactly what you want for your big day. This is especially true when it comes to the cake. Eating a slice together is a big part of the wedding celebration. Make sure it’s one you can both enjoy!
Stress at this time is very common, and it can even lead to the odd spat with your partner. If you’re both working toward the common goal of wedding planning, then you’ll both know when things are getting a little tough. Teamwork here is, after all, great practice for married life!
