Weddings are a social gathering that will never diminish in today’s or our future’s society. That said, there are always different types of people from different cultures with different beliefs at every wedding. This article discusses ways to feel comfortable around different types of people at weddings and how to socially interact with them.
For a unique spin on the traditional wedding guest book, use clothespins to affix blank heavyweight over-size gift tags to a floral garland, hemp rope, or line of pennants. Mount the line over a table near the entryway and provide a variety of pens and markers in bright colors. Guests can write messages of hope and blessings for the new couple, then pin them back on the rope.
Those who love you will not weigh the beauty of your day based on cost. If keeping to a smaller budget makes your day just as special to you as spending a fortune would, then so be it. Don’t spend yourself into a hole just to impress anyone. Your loved ones care more that you are happy and make the most of the day.
If you want to save money, do not choose a wedding date that falls in the months of May through October. Look to the off-season instead; vendors will have more flexibility with the dates they are available, and they typically charge less money for the same service. You will also save yourself some stress as you try to line up the services that you need.
Deciding on a wedding date can be difficult. In fact, even choosing which season you want to hold your wedding in can be hard. A good way to decide the season is to first come up with a mental image of your perfect wedding, and focus particularly on the colors that will be involved such as in your floral arrangements. The four seasons have distinct color schemes, and one of them could naturally fit well with how you envision your wedding.
If you are planning a wedding, consider keeping your guest list on the smaller side. You can save money by having not so many guests. You can show your small number of guests’ greater details such as large gift baskets, large meals, and limo services. This can be paid for just by reducing your guest list.
Be careful if you are planning on getting married on the weekend, especially Saturday. These are the most popular days of the week to get married and generally many venues are incredibly packed unless you plan them a long time in advance. Definitely not an easy choice, so think ahead when planning the day.
As we have come to find, weddings invite an array of people from an array of backgrounds. Not everybody there will have the same point of view. However, there are ways to get along with everybody and be the “Switzerland” of the group. Just apply the aforementioned advice from this article and you will be a professional, adaptive wedding guest!
