A wedding is always a great cause of excitement not only for the couple ready to exchange promises of eternal love and devotion but for all their relatives and friends, too. For every bride and groom, there is a number of people who care for them deeply and are infinitely glad that two loving hearts are joining in a blessed union. That is why it is unwise, if not ungrateful, to view a wedding party as a waste of time and money. Even if you don't want to have a religious ceremony, simply signing a marriage contract is just as significant, and your family and friends want to be with you on this day and save the date by celebrating the start of your new life together. Of course, if you are having money troubles a simple meeting up and a dinner with the closest ones would perfectly suffice, but if you can afford to splash out – or have wonderful old-fashioned parents who have saved for your wedding day – don't hesitate to do so.
The fact you're saying your vows is enough to make this day unforgettable, but why not make it memorable, too? Also, imagine all the bonding you will be instantly committed to when you start on the wedding planning. Trading wedding ideas over the morning cup of coffee is such an exciting way of starting the day! Of course, it may happen so that you find out your significant other imagines your wedding quite differently from how you think this day should go. For example, one of you can insist on designer wedding decorations from the latest catalogue whereas the other wants nothing else than to conduct the ceremony in his grandmother's rosary. Well, you will have to find compromises many a time in your married life, and planning your wedding is a perfect place to start.
Still, perhaps the wedding is the point where the groom should show understanding of the bride's wishes. For centuries wedding ceremonies have been centered largely around the female participants – a hard-to-break tradition. An honorary man will allow his future wife complete freedom at the very least where it comes to bridal wear. Come on, guys, you'll be the first to marvel at how awesome she looks in the wedding photography in a couple of years! The wedding dress should reflect its wearer's personality and attitude and go with the scene, like the wedding flowers, and all the accessories as well as the wedding hair style of the bride's choice should match splendidly. And, of course, there is one thing you should never economize upon, even if this means forsaking part of the reception plans - wedding rings. This is the part where you just plain need to hit the designer jewelry stores, and to hell with everything else. The rings are the tokens of your love, your decision to be together forever. Don't undermine your feelings and everything you've gone through to approach this day by buying cheap ones!
