When you have eight to nine months left before your wedding, you need to select your wedding dress and book your reception site. Also at this point, it would be helpful to have your photographer booked and a create a tentative list of the guests you plan on inviting. Taking care of these things will make the next few months go much easier.
When planning a wedding, even far in advance, it’s important to keep a record of your ideas on paper. If you plan everything verbally, it’s easy to forget things, or have disagreements later on things that were never clearly stated. If you have a record of plans that have been agreed on that can be updated as you go, your wedding will go much more smoothly.
Remember that it is always better to have too much food and drink than not enough. Nobody will remember what color your flowers were; but if you run out of beer, then all of your friends will be sure to remember that for the rest of their lives.
For a summer-themed wedding cake try using a warm color scheme. Mix bold colors like fuschia and orange with white icing for some eye-catching “pops” of color. You can experiment with ribbons or add some sugar flowers and butterflies. You could even use a cupcake tower so that your guests can have any flavor they want.
Have a small decorated cake for the traditional cake cutting event, and serve guests sheet cake. Not only will the guests not realize nor care that their cake is not the one being cut, the bride and groom get their cake cutting pictures and save a lot of money in the process.
A week before your wedding hits, make sure that you try on your dress again so that you can make any last minute adjustments. If you were to put on extra weight or lose weight in the month leading up to your wedding, you will need to have this taken care of.
Include your fiance in planning your wedding or he’ll end up feeling like it wasn’t really his day at all. If he says he doesn’t care what you do he might just be saying that to keep you happy, so try to include him in the catering or cake choice so he has a yummy way to get involved.
If your flower girl or ring bearer are very young, consider having an adult or older child walk them down the aisle. Young children are extremely unpredictable. They might walk down the aisle fine, or they might not walk at all. Having a trusted friend or family member to coax them along might help your ceremony to run smoothly.
