When it comes to planning a wedding, many couples experience a lot of pressure from their family, friends, society, etc. Everybody tells you what and how you should do. But it’s your big day and you have a full right to organize everything according to your taste, desire, and plan. Don’t be afraid to make your own choices. If you want to incorporate in your wedding something that is not traditional or common, do it. Don’t stress over things that might be ridiculed by your wedding guests, don’t let other people make important choices for you or influence your decisions. You will get the most pleasure and fun from the wedding planned according to your own taste. Who cares what other people think when it’s your wedding?! Everything should please you, not the guests, your family, or stuff.

Most kids love to dance and aren’t shy about it. So, if you’re having a kid-friendly wedding and are thinking about a dance floor, be ready that it probably will be overwhelmed with children. And that’s great! It’s a big plus for those adults who are shy to dance in front of strangers, they’ll feel much better with children dancing around them. This activity is also perfect because it involves both kids and adults, so you don’t have to spend extra money to entertain these two groups separately. And the kids’ parents will be grateful to you because they can keep an eye on their offspring without actively entertaining them, which every parent appreciates.

If your wedding location is sparse and zoned, consider putting a few directional signs to let the guests know where to find what. It can be a tree of signs saying “BBQ”, “photo zone”, “dessert table”, “lounge zone”, or even “WC”. Make signs for any locations you have. Your female wedding guests who came to your big day in high heels will definitely be grateful for your efforts. Directional signs are great for outdoor weddings.

But if your wedding location is small and you can see all the zones, why bother with signs? Don’t overstuff the location.

Most weddings in Bangladesh are celebrated in winter. This tradition historically comes from agricultural practices. After the local farmers finished harvesting rice, they had a month of rest – that’s when they historically had weddings. They had a lot of free time and fresh food, so it’s only logical. Even today in urban areas, this tradition is often still followed, partially because the weather is the best at this season and there are holidays in schools.

When you’re practicing your first wedding dance, don’t forget to try it in the shoes you’re going to wear during the actual dance on your wedding day. Give yourself time to get used to these shoes. Whether it’ll be high heels or sneakers, practice in them at least a few times so that you know how you feel in these particular shoes, how slippery they are, how stable you’re in them, etc. Especially if your dance is complicated. By the way, both the bride and the groom should practice the first wedding dance in the shoes that you’re going to wear for the wedding, because male shoes can also be uncomfortable.

When you’re planning a bachelor or bachelorette party for your friends or relatives, leave some room for spontaneity. Don’t try to control everything or go strict according to the plan you’ve prepared. Just relax and have fun. Not every second and every action should be planned. Some of the best moments are spontaneous. Of course, it’s always good to have a plan, but don’t worry too much if the plan abruptly changes dramatically.

If you want to be creative with your wedding décor, including wedding table décor, replace ordinary fresh flowers with dried flowers, an arrangement of leaves (they look especially charming at fall weddings), succulents, or even fruit bouquets. Such installations look very stylish.

Usually, wedding shower gifts are not very expensive, unlike wedding gifts. The average cost is from $50 to $500. But make sure the present is useful and has some connection to the wedding. For example, the couple can use it on their wedding day or during their honeymoon.

Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge and wife to second in the line of succession to the British throne, had a beautiful royal wedding. And her wedding bouquet was a lovely – delicate and elegant – small posy wedding bouquet. It was composed from white lily of the valley, Sweet William, hyacinths, and myrtle flowers. After the ceremony, she left her bouquet in Westminster Abbey at the grave of the Unknown Warrior.

The color of your lingerie must match the color of your wedding attire. Never wear black or red underwear with a white wedding dress and vice versa. Even if the fabric is dense. It might be visible with some specific lighting or from some angles. Sometimes, it shows on the wedding pictures, even if you don’t see anything in person. So, pick either nude or white lingerie for a white dress. And with a black wedding gown, wear dark panties. Nude will look fine with any color of the wedding gown. Or the color should match the dress.

In Ireland, brides often incorporate small horseshoes into their ensemble for good luck. Stylized horseshoes can also be pinned to a wedding dress or added to a wedding bouquet. The “U” shape of the horseshoe must always face upwards – to keep all the luck in.
