With summer finally upon us in the United States, it’s time to enjoy some sunshine and celebratory times. With summer comes wedding bells and wedding invites as friends and family use the beautiful days to celebrate their nuptials. Each couple invests a lot of time, money, and energy in planning a special day not just for themselves, but also for their guests. Getting ready for a wedding can often be stressful time for both the couple getting married and their guests, so let’s take a look at some ideas on how to make a special day just that much better.
Don’t delay on responding to a well-crafted RSVP card from the engaged couple. Simply put: fill out the RSVP card, fill it out completely, and fill it out on time. These are integral to a couple's planning process to get a solid head count for everything from food and the open bar to favors and the seating chart. Take five minutes to fill it out and send it back.
When thinking about your wardrobe for the event, think out of the box but remember that this age-old rule should not be bent: do not wear white, beige, ivory, or really any shade of white to a wedding. Unless the couple has requested their guests to wear white, just don't do it. This may seem like a small thing, but this can detract from the bride’s chosen attire which will typically be in white, and no one wants to upstage the bride on her special day. If you really feel the need to break this rule, rather save it for a sunny day brunching on a patio with your significant other.
Most couples these days offer a wedding website which has lots of useful information about their big day including of course the time, location, transportation, and accommodation options. What it does is inform guests of how they could make arrangements around their wedding. If they’re planning to have a weddings in Ocean County NJ , guests can easily book a place to stay in the surrounding area. Do the couple a favor and check out the website for useful information before texting them the week or day-of with questions that can easily be answered on the website. Understand that the week of the wedding tends to feel very overwhelming for the couple, only to be enhanced by relatives and last minute loose ends that need to be tied. Don't add to the list by texting them more to dos.
On the day of, leave enough time to find parking, bathroom breaks, grabbing a drink and doing a bit of chit-chat. Take the time to appreciate the wedding venues Ocean County , too, as often the banquet halls in places like Ocean County have beautiful views. Having stragglers rush to seats, blocking guest's views, disrupting the moment or being a nuisance is plain horrible.
Open bars are awesome but know your limits as it is so easy to take advantage of the situation and over-indulge. Wedding memories last a lifetime and trust me when I say you do not want to be the running joke for years to come.
