Marriage ceremonies follow a traditional set of do’s and don’t’s that have been a part of cultures and traditions for centuries. Here is a few myths explained, and if you are one of those brides that are looking to break traditions, we have put together the most common myths surrounding a wedding that you can avoid.
For those that never saw the charm of the good old white dress and veil, stepping out in gowns in other vibrant colors by designers such as peach, pinks and even blues will have you look gorgeous as ever. The settings of the location or even the theme of the wedding make a nice choice for a particular color selection. Beach celebrations or destination locations make a great opportunity to try out something new.
Swapping Professionals for your talented friends
Pictures shot by a friend that you always adored, the floral deco that amazed you or even if you have a friend in the entertainment business, will add a personal touch to the day you get married. More often professionals are mechanical in the way they work, a friend will know your preferences and if they are acquainted with your family and friends they would know how to mix things-up according to your likes.
Inviting those for the reception and ceremony your were invited to
So, you were invited to a friend’s celebration and you are now feeling pressurized to reciprocate when it is yours? Well, you are not obligated to, it is your big day and you invite guests that you are close to. Yes, there would be a few that assume they are a part of it, but informing them in advance would help in being up-front about it.
Choosing to have a Planner
The financial advantage of having a planner has multiple benefits, not only you will have everything organized and well planned, you will lower the cost of the occasion which otherwise would be a tall task if it were to be done solely by yourself . Coordinators for your big day will negotiate and pass on discounts from the various vendors they associate with in the business and are always updated with the current prices of services.
Doing everything yourself
To lower the cost or even manage it doing everything by yourself isn’t always a safe option. At the planning stages, many couples assume that taking-up tasks by themselves will give them the levy to spend on an additional item or an add the savings to their honeymoon budget. Although, the option is attractive, you need to factor in time and access to the right types of raw materials and supplies.
Having the same number of the bridesmaids and groomsmen
It is always a balancing act to pair the bridesmaids and groomsmen, maybe your friends are more than his or vice-versa and you look to fill in the gaps by roping in a few extras to even out both the sides. There is no such rule and if planned right you can have everyone come together on the big day. Splitting up tasks would be a great way to get everyone involved and actively take part in it, such as a few being ushers or readers among other tasks.
You would need a loan from the bank to pay for it
Planning such a major occasion is a balancing act and without plunging into debt you can set your priorities right and avoid a few expenses rather than cut corners. Instead of splurging on everything you can list out what items have to be allocated a higher budget against those that you don’t need to.
