Every little girl’s dreams of the day she will become a bride and her perfect wedding day for as long as she can remember and usually, this is very much before she meets her significant other. For many young women, the perfect wedding is really not about the person she marrying or the actual act of marriage. It is about the perfect day and the one day that she gets to be a princess and live out the fairytales that she has watched on television all her life. However, the perfect wedding does not necessarily have to be the same thing that everyone has done before you over and over. It does not have to follow the same rituals, the same traditions, the same boring plans that people before you have followed and people after you will no doubt follow. It is important to plan your wedding in a way that it is unique and it stands out from every other wedding that you have ever been to and every one of your guests has been to.
Ditch the traditions
When planning your wedding, do not buy your wedding supplies from a Emerald bridal shop because these shops tend to sell everything for a very high cost when you should be able to get the very same things at a regular shop for a fraction of the cost. Sadly, bridal stores and wedding suppliers are aware that brides and grooms spend a lot of money on their wedding day and the “once in a lifetime” concept makes brides and grooms spend whatever it takes to get what they want. This said however, you should easily be able to get what you want at a regular store for a very small amount of money in comparison to a wedding shop.
For your simple flower girl dresses, you could simply visit a children’s clothing store and pick out some cute dresses off the shelf without mentioning that they are for flower girls. You can do the same for your bridesmaid’s dresses. You will be shocked to see just how much money you can save by doing this and the truth is, the dresses will be just as beautiful, if not even more beautiful than dresses made by professional bridal dressmakers.
For your decorations, use simple lights and lanterns to give a very magical look and feel to your venue without spending too much money. The truth is, the simpler the decorations are, the more elegant and magical you can make your wedding look instead of overwhelming people with many decorations, coloursand heavy work.
