Five Quick Tips from Inside Weddings Senior Editor, Marilyn Oliveira

Wedding Planning Tips

This week’s five quick tips for your wedding planning come from Inside Weddings Senior Editor, Marilyn Oliveira! If you haven’t checked out it – be sure to visit Inside Weddings’ blog too!

1. Invest in an excellent photographer. The event will last for one day, but the pictures will last forever. Don’t shortchange yourself (or your future grandchildren) by skimping on the all-important element of photography.

2. Use unique seating. Don’t go to great lengths to personalize your event and then use the same Chiavari chairs as everyone else — there is more seating at a ceremony and reception than any other decor element!

3. Take a look back before you exit the ceremony. You will again never see so many people you love in the same place at the same time all gazing at you with joy. When you and your new spouse reach the end of the aisle, look back and take a mental picture of that beautiful moment.

4. Accept that you needn’t attend the cocktail hour. Keeping your guests happy and cared for while you take photographs is the main point of cocktails. You don’t have to rush your photos to be there.

5. Consider the “big picture” decor elements as well as the details. If your flooring, ceilings, and/or walls are unattractive, all of the small personal touches in the world won’t distract from it.

Thanks for sharing your tips, Marilyn!
