Wedding Planning Advice for a Second Wedding
By now you have figured out it's not about the wedding reception, flowers, dresses, tuxedos, etc..., but about the person you are going to spend the rest of your life with. If you are certain of this then wedding planning should be an enjoyable experience. Here are some quick tips that we discovered when planning our wedding:
Since this is a second wedding, most parents have already done their fair share once before. Therefore they will probably not be contributing financially to your special day. In many cases, this should be perceived as a good thing as the only opinions that should count are the bride and groom. Most couples by now realize that the cost of a wedding could be the down payment on a new home. Make sure to set a realistic budget!
We found that using the internet to order all of our wedding favors and supplies alleviated a lot of unnecessary stress. We were able to shop at our convenience and have the packages delivered to the location of our choice. Ordering from one website may alleviate some of your concerns and possibly reduce your shipping costs.
Limit the number of bridal attendants. Let all of your bridal attendants know what color you have selected, and let them pick a dress of their choice that is flattering to them. This will alleviate the pressure of picking the perfect dress for everyone's figure.
Out-of Town Guests
If you plan on inviting many out of town guests, choose a month that is climate favorable to all. This will make traveling and attending your wedding a lot less stressful. In addition, choose to get married in a hotel which can accommodate the wedding ceremony, reception, and accommodations for your guests.
Many second weddings occur when we are a little older and many of our friends now have children. If your wedding is going to be in the evening and children are not invited, try to arrange for babysitters for out of town guests.
Hopefully these wedding tips will help alleviate some of the stress you may be feeling. Remember, keep it simple. Sometimes less can be more! Don't forget to take time for yourself and relax. Don't stress too much over this one day. You have found your life partner and you will have many years of happy days to come!
