To document your wedding day the best that you can, make sure that you have a large guest book. This will allow people to write what they are feeling and jot down some of the memories that they had with you. This can be a memorable keepsake for the rest of your life.
If you fear that people won’t want to give you cash wedding gifts as they don’t have a lot of money to give, include a “cash box” at the door to your reception. Guests are asked in the wedding invitations to bring their gift in an unmarked envelope, allow them to place it in the box anonymously and reducing any guilt they might feel.
Typically, you will have a set way that you want everything to go for your wedding. If something does not go according to plan, try not to stress out. Adjust to the situation so that you can make the most of what you have and avoid any stress on the day of your wedding.
If you’re planning on having a buffet at your wedding reception, work out a plan to get the food moving quickly so that no guest is left waiting. Consider having multiple tables at different locations in your venue so that many tables can go up at one time, shortening the lines at each.
If you really want to have speeches at your wedding, keep them short. There is an award ceremony that limits speeches to four words, which would be a cute rule to have at your reception, but maybe too limiting. One suggestion is limiting them to just a few sentences, therefore no one gets bored and a large amount of time is not put into speeches.
Brides with sensitive skin can de-stress before a trip down the aisle by adopting a skincare routine that creates a glowing, revitalized appearance that won’t cause breakouts, hives, or irritation. Find a facial treatment with brightening and skin-soothing ingredients like sea salts, rose, creamy scrubs and oatmeal proteins.
When picking a DJ for your wedding, make sure you choose someone with a great reputation. A bad DJ can ruin your reception, so ask any candidates for their references along with their fees. If a candidate has no references, mark him off the list immediately! If his references are all family, that’s another reason to give him the boot.

The couple should be the center of the wedding, not the decorations and details. By adopting the wise strategies in this article, you can have a beautiful wedding without an extravagant budget.
