A wedding day is the most beautiful day in one’s life. It is a perfect time to express your personality through your creative ideas. It is a day when you show love to your family and friends for being part of your Big Day.

Good food creates lasting memories, and these are the memories that will be carried on for years.

In some ways, your wedding reception is almost more important than the actual ceremony. I know, I know, your ceremony is vitally important as it’s the moment when you properly get married. But, the reception is normally the part of a wedding that people remember the most – at least from the guests perspective!
As a result, you need to ensure yours is memorable and gets people talking for years to come. You want to be that one wedding people still reminisce about in five years time. To do this, you need to nail down the cornerstones of a good wedding reception.
We’re going to let you in on a secret ladies; it’s not only men who can propose. Shocking, isn’t it? But alas, there it is. No longer do ladies have to wait until the leap year to pop the question. More often, women are taking the helm and getting the job done. In fact, about three-fourths of Americans say it would be okay for ladies to do the proposing. It worked for Lorelai Gilmore, after all.
Planning a wedding is notoriously stressful. If you have any kind of experience at all in planning anyone’s wedding day, you will know that there is always so much more to do than you initially believe. This is a common source of frustration, particularly for the bride and groom, but there are ways to alleviate the whole worry. One of the most sensible things you can do in the last few days in the run-up to the wedding is to carry out a last-minute check. There are a few essential items which should be double-checked at this last juncture.

However you are going to be arriving at your wedding, you absolutely need to make sure that it is definitely all arranged. If you are getting a taxi, then double-check with the taxi company that all is well. Similarly, if you are going for something more extravagant like a horse-and-carriage, be sure to specify the exact time that you need them to arrive. It might even be worth giving them a slightly early time. As the bride, you are welcome to be a little late on your wedding day – but you will probably find that you just want to get to the venue in good time anyway. Also be sure to check the transportation of other guests and the wedding party, if relevant to your day.

It goes without saying that you will want to document the day, so you should be sure to double-check that the photographer is definitely still on board. This is one of the most commonly overlooked parts of weddings, so you should make sure to do this early on in the last few days. It’s also worth shopping around a little earlier for a photographer who you feel you can genuinely trust. Having that trust will make a world of difference on the day, and it will be one less thing you need to be stressed about. Remember that you want the photographer to capture the whole day, so get them to arrive as early as possible.
If you still have money owed to any of the vendors or other professionals, then it might be worth paying ahead of time before the day itself. If you get the financial concerns out-of-the-way early, then you don’t have to spend time on the day itself worrying about money. Especially when that is the last thing you want to be thinking about as you get married! Pay upfront, and you can always seek a refund if someone doesn’t show or the service is not what you expected.
A great tip is to get your luggage taken in early so that you don’t even need to think about it on your big day. Doing this will save you a surprising amount of stress, and it will be luggage weight off your back in more ways than one. This is the ideal task to gift to a bridesmaid or close friend, so be sure to make use of them in that respect!
