Wedding Ideas: Planning Your Wedding

Sep 5, 2008
A wedding is a dream come true for most people. A moment where a woman and man are called and combined by the holy sacrament of matrimony. During this time, the couple will exchange vows and legally offer themselves to each other. However, before coming to the exact point, the couple should consider careful and definitive planning and preparation. A well prepared wedding is perfect to leave long lasting memories not only to the wedded couple but also to all their guests and participants. But to plan and prepare for anything and everything is not easy. There are lots of factors that can make or break the celebration and therefore smart decisions are needed.

Starting with choosing ideal participants, while many tasks and responsibilities are followed during the planning and preparation, the bride and groom need to have assistance. Therefore, they want to decide who to play as their bridesmaid and groomsman. Traditionally, a bridesmaid is the bride's choice among her female friends and family to stand alongside her to assist her. The bride has the privilege to choose more than one girl to play such role, and obviously, they should be single. Bridesmaids are typically the bride's close relatives, friends or co-workers. With the groomsmen, they are chosen gentlemen that will assist the groom. Just like the bride's situation, the chosen groomsman can be a brother, friends or co-worker. And because of their support and effort, most couples love to pay back. The couple's way of showing appreciation is by means of giving special presents for their participants, especially bridesmaids and groomsmen. Gifts for them may come in simple or elegant items depending on the couple's choice as well as the receiver's wants. Choosing gifts for bridesmaids is the responsibility of the bride, while choosing gifts for groomsmen is the responsibility of the groom.

The selection for decorations and wedding favors follow. After the couple have decided on the theme of their wedding, they should follow what to incorporate to finish the look of the ceremony. Choosing what to decorate is easy with the wedding theme in mind, from color schemes, flower to ribbons. Example, if it is a beach-wedding theme, the color shades should be pastel and the decoration should coordinate with the beach-look like shells, sand, stones and more.

As for the wedding favors, the selection also varies with the theme of the wedding. If your wedding is simple and casual, settle with simple and casual-looking wedding party favors also, and do it the other way around if your wedding theme is elegant. Favors and keepsakes serve as mementos so your guests can easily remember your wedding day after the celebration has ended. But what makes it memorable is its feature and appeal. To find beautiful choices of themed wedding favors, consider browsing the Internet for different online stores that offer wider choices of wedding souvenirs. There's a plethora of choices for these items to incorporate with your wedding theme. You may also find unique wedding favors. These favors are made customized and either enhanced with a personalized touch. Make it personal by scripting your initials or a personal message on desired items. After all, it's always best to make special gifts that show how thankful you are on your big day!
