20+ Tips Simple Wedding Ideas 2015 for You – When it comes the celebration of weddings, many couples agree: size matters. Fewer people can mean more personal celebration. There is more time for the bride to spend with their guests, the group really got to know each other, and everyone contributed to the event with its own way. Intimate celebration, it seems, have certain advantages. Here, we reveal the truth behind a small celebration even it simple wedding ideas.
Keep the guest list small. If you can pull one step off, the cost for just about everything else is going down, and everything will be fairly simple in comparison. My wife and I are not able to do so. Well, by the way, we were – we both have a spacious family, and in Guam, it’s custom to invite everyone (not only cousins but second cousins and third and fourth, and all the aunts and uncles and grandparents and children each level). But we limited the guest list to just the first cousins of our parents, and it is an achievement. We added just a few close friends, when we could have invited dozens and dozens more. So we end up with a list of 300 instead of 600, as I would have liked to be closer to 150.
Keep the menu simple. The biggest cost for us has been food, but we were able to stick to a reasonable level because we do not go to fancy, fancy dinner. We did not choose a large number of dishes and desserts either. We chose the key dishes, all of them simple, and left it at that. While we want people to enjoy the food, they do not come there to have a fancy meal – they’ll be there simply to celebrate our marriage and enjoy our company. If that is not enough for them, it’s not my problem.
Have it served. When it comes to food, you can go two ways – simple in terms of how much trouble it would (go with a caterer) or simple in terms of costs (have family prepare food). On Guam, it’s customary for families to prepare food, and we have many families who are willing to help. This will save us money. But we do not want to go through all the trouble it – it’s a major hassle – so we went with simple, and we were happy with it. In this way, family can just get dressed and show up and enjoy the festivities.
Get help, and delegate. While we saved our family from having to cook, we ask for help from a few friends and family. Instead of trying to do all the preparations on our own, others were registered. And believe me, they were happy to help. There are many small details that need to be taken care of, and if you try to do everything yourself, you’ll be running around like crazy. Instead, allow others to help, delegate certain tasks, and when they do, check them off your list. It makes life a lot easier.
Go with the easiest attire. For me and others in our wedding party (three of my children, the father of the bride and best man), we chose the simplest attire in terms of how much work it will take, and the tuxedo rental. Sure, we can go simple, but we’ll have to buy clothes, and it was a lot of trouble trying to shop for clothes that will fit us all. Tuxedos are hassle free. For girls, we have a tailor’s (of the store hole-in-the-wall) to make some simple dresses for the little girls, then bought some very simple dresses (I mean really simple – like beach dresses) for the bridesmaids. The bride, of course, have a nice dress, but it was reasonably priced, with a beautiful and classic look.
