Online wedding gown purchases can be easy on your wallet, but give yourself enough time for alterations as needed. A certain person claims to have spent only $100 or her gown, but had to spend another $200 to get it altered. Don’t forget to add this additional cost into your budget!

TIP! If your wedding cake is a more colorful one that easily serves as the star of the show at your reception, after you and your new spouse of course, consider having it displayed sitting on a piece of fabric that coordinates with the colors in the cake. You can also try solids, patterns and heavily-textured fabrics like satin, velvet or silk for more visual interest that helps bring everything together.

For a destination wedding, one wonderful present for your guests is a basket brimming with vacation goodies delivered to each room. Include useful items like sunglasses, a hat, tourist map, pamphlets and a disposable camera. Additionally, you may want to include a local restaurant guide so that your guests know where to eat.

TIP! Make sure you think of every detail, from the entertainment to the food. Those that have elected to join you on this important day in your life deserve to enjoy themselves.

If the wedding couple both like to travel they can use decorations that portray that interest. Use a little artistic skill to get your invitations appearing like aged postcards from a far-away land. A vintage leather suitcase can be propped open to display wedding programs, family photos, or favors.

Centerpieces can quickly cause your reception to be a dud financially and socially. Keep your centerpieces very simple instead of large and ornate. You will then allow people to have a conversation without unnecessary distractions; this will bring your guests closer.

TIP! If you don’t want to spend a small fortune on flower arrangements on the reception tables, have you considered a display of potted plants instead? There are a number of options for decorative pots, ranging from glazed ceramic to terracotta. Consider adding custom details, such as ribbons or decoupage.
