Planning your wedding

Lets face it, up to now you’ve possibly got pages of ideas, notes and maybe even started some sort of planning your wedding to make sure you get  “it right” on the day.  Did you go over the ever expanding guest list, do the extra numbers mean you have to cut out some flowers or go cheap on the stationary?
One thing’s for sure if you’re not in control at this stage you possibly never will be.  There are literally a mountain of things you should look at  to ensure the big day “Pops”.
But how do we do it? where do we start? and more importantly how does all this fit into the budget.  So lets look at the basic content and then see how we can improve to fit neatly into the amount of money we are going to throw into this major event.
Firstly I want you to consider what percentage of your budget you are willing to invest into each of the items of the wedding bucket.  Given 100% of $00000 = $00000, how do we proportion this money as a percentage into;
1.    The Ceremony – Location fee, Officiant fee, Marriage License, and any other item in the ceremony – suggest ( 3% )
2.    Reception – Reception site, Food, Drinks, Rentals, Cake and so on – suggest ( 48% )
3.    Attire – Dress, Headpiece.Veil, Undergarments and hosiery, shoes, accessories, hair/makeup.  Then the grooms suit, shoes, shitrt tie and so on – suggest ( 10% )
4.    Rings – suggest ( 3% )
5.    Flowers – Ceremony, brides bouquet, maid-of-honour and bridesmaids bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres, Center piece and so on – suggest ( 8% )
6.     Music – Ceremony musicians or music, Band or DJ, sound system rental – suggest (8% )
7.    Photography fees – suggest (12$ )
8.    Transportation – transportation for wedding party, guests shuttle and or parking attendants – suggest ( 2% )
9.     Stationery – Invitations, response cards, thank-you notes, postage, calligraphy, guest book – suggest ( 3% )
10.    Gifts – Bridesmaids and groomsmen, parents, welcome baskets, out of town guest – suggest ( 3% )
Now this is just an idea, but you can easily see at a glance where if necessary you could cut your wedding costs to get back into your budget.  And in this example, just look at the percentage allocated to the Reception, and this is an area where the memories will only last up to the next decent meal! does it really take that much of the budget,  Yes sadly it does as research has shown us.
There are more items to consider in your planning.  What type of music you want, what type of music you don’t want, which guests you do or don’t want and the list goes on and on.
To help you, I’ve placed some articles on my site.  Just read them and use the info however you want.  If you need help them please contact me.

Vintage Wedding Gowns and Hair – Look Stunning on Your Big Day

Vintage-themed wedding ceremonies are becoming quite fashionable among today’s modern brides. If you wish to have a wedding that’s unique, fun and unforgettable then a vintage wedding is certainly a good idea to try. A vintage wedding will require plenty of preparation in order to become a success. Naturally, the most important among these preparations will be your vintage wedding gown and hair. Read on to learn how you can best choose your vintage wedding dress and hairstyle.

Choose an era.
The first thing that you need to do in order to have a vintage wedding is to choose the era that will be your inspiration. Keep in mind that “vintage”covers many time periods which include all decades until the 1960′s. Before you can set about choosing your wedding dress and hairstyle, you need to choose the era where you will be taking inspiration from. Do you prefer the swinging fashion of the 1920′s, the romantic appeal of the Renaissance or the free-spirited ambience of the 1960′s? It might also help to take a look at photos of clothing and hairstyles from different decades.

Look for a quality vintage clothing store.
Unless you have found the perfect vintage wedding dress among your family heirlooms then chances are you will have to go out and find one. Your best bet would be to shop from a respectable vintage clothing store. A professional vintage clothing shop would know how to store old clothing so chances are high that you will find wedding gowns that are in good shape. In the event that you couldn’t find a dress that suits your taste, you might want to consider reproduction vintage wedding gowns instead. Not only will these give you more choices but the dresses would be in better shape as well.

Put fresh flowers in your hair.
Plenty of vintage hairstyles use fresh flowers in addition to the veil. If you are going for a medieval theme, you can even wear a crown of fresh flowers in lieu of a wedding veil. It was also fashionable for 1940′s brides to decorate their hairstyles with flowers.

Look for vintage hair accessories.
When it comes to vintage hairstyles, you can still choose between having your hair done up for a classically elegant look or going for a more effortless and natural style by wearing your hair down. No matter which one you choose, be sure to top off your tresses with a vintage hair accessory. This can be anything from an antique tiara to vintage hair combs.
