The key to have fun at your own wedding party is all about the preparations. You have to make sure that details are well-prepared. With good groundwork, you can be sure that you'll have a wonderful party. At the moment you put on the dress and be the bride, take a deep breath and just relax. Trust your planners, vendors and family to run the celebration smoothly. Also remember these 4 tips:
1. Don't stress over small things
There will be no end if we want every little thing to be perfect. With this worry, you'll never truly enjoy your party. On your big day, what matters to you should firstly be yourself. Don't make yourself babysit the flower girls just because you're afraid they could run off and you couldn't find them when the time comes.
2. Don't try to set everything perfectly
The enemy of having a perfect party is actually perfectionism. For example, you can't possibly please all of your guests' tastes and preferences for the wedding catering. It will harry you as it is impossible to satisfy everyone's taste buds even to the smallest intimate wedding party.
3. Loosen up and mingle with your guests
There is no better party than the one where you can relax and enjoy. Try your best to spend some time to go around and say hi to each and every one of your guests. What's the point on throwing a wedding party you won't cherish? So, on this joyful occasion ,remember to spread the love and happiness around.
4. Be flexible with inescapable good changes
There're unavoidable things that we cannot control. Therefore, it's best if you always have contingency plans when choosing to have an outdoor wedding as weather can be your biggest enemy. However, if you don't have a perfect weather, it won't be the end of the world. Just learn to enjoy the drizzling rain. Who knew umbrellas can actually give a sweet touch to weddings, as we learn from this couple's wedding in Bali.
