According to the CDC, this year will have over 2.1 million marriages, which is a fair amount of ceremonies, parties, after parties, food, and drinks. Yet, while a lot of us know what happens in wedding, how do we really make it special? After all, this is supposed to be a day that will stand the test of time, which is exactly why I’m going to give you a few pointers on how to accomplish that. Check them out below:

1

An Amazing Dress

Perhaps one of the first things you should look at for having a killer wedding is the dress. The dresses for the brides and bridesmaids set the tone for the entire aesthetic of the ceremony, as well as what the groom’s party should wear. Additionally, your dress is going to be the focal point of every photo when you reminisce about that special day, so make it one that’s worth every memory.

The Venue

Choosing a wedding venue is where you can let your creativity shine. This is truly the time for you and your significant other to showcase to your friends and family the type of party you’re looking to throw. Whether it be a church, a barn, a vineyard, or even a museum, a great venue can be the highlight of an amazing party. Depending on your budget, a lot of these spots can be somewhat affordable as well, with the average cost clocking in between $2,000 to upwards of $22,596. Take the opportunity to see really what you’re after, as well as what’s available.

Catering

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love free food and drinks? After all, that’s one of our favorite parts about a wedding, right? Bringing on a solid catering company is one of the most crucial things you can have at your party, as well as something that showcases the tastes of you and your spouse. According to Thumbtack, the average cost of catering a wedding falls around $1,214 depending on the type of food you serve and in what style. Remember, when it comes to wedding food, you always have the options of table service, buffet or family style, which the latter two can help you save tremendously on.

A Band/DJ

This is perhaps one of the most underrated elements of a wedding but also one of the most crucial to have. According to Perfect Weddings, 72% of brides said they would’ve spent more time looking for entertainment, which says a lot about who you hire. Make sure to bring on someone that first and foremost is the taste for you and your significant other but be mindful of the other guests at hand. No one wants to make a family member angry, so try to find a DJ/Band that will provide a balance.

Throwing It In The Fall

According to XO Group, 32% of weddings happen in September and October. The reason being? It’s the best temperatures! Sitting in the grueling summer heat with a three piece suit on is a nightmare for most, let alone when you factor in all the eating, drinking, and traveling around that can only add to the stress. Aim to book early if you can, as it’s going to be well-worth the wait.

7

A Great Reception Dinner

The reception dinner is the time for everyone to come together and get reacquainted/introduced. It’s a pivotal moment that’s going to set the tone for how the rest of the weekend will go, so it’s important to find a setting that fits accordingly. Additionally, check in advance to see the amount of seating that they have for your party, and if it’s the type of cuisine that’s going to serve everyone’s needs.

The Cake

Your wedding cake is perhaps one of the most memorable desserts you’ll ever have. There are tons of options here, from going for a more traditional, elegant look to going out on something specific to you and your spouse’s interests. Trust me; this is going to be something that while it may seem underrated, it’s actually a timeless element to the whole event.
