,Dowries no longer exist in our culture. Also long gone by the wayside is
the old notion that the bride's family is financially responsible for the
entire cost of the wedding and reception. Having your parents bear the entire
expense of a wedding and reception is not a birthright. Their contribution
is a gift and, with the skyrocketing cost of weddings, is has become
commonplace for both sets of parents and the bridal couple to share in this
major expense.When setting your wedding budget, start by asking what amount,
if any, your parents are willing to contribute. They may wish to cover some,
if not all, of the services and items on your list. Modern tradition still
observes the following financial allocations:Traditional expenses of groom
and/or groom's parentsThe groom's parents (and/or groom) are responsible for
the cost of the bride's and bridesmaids' bouquets, all corsages for the ladies
and boutonnieres for the gentlemen. The groom bears the expense of the
marriage license and officiant's fee, but not the church or ceremony location
charges. The groom or his parents pay for expenses associated with
transportation of the bride and groom to the ceremony and reception, and
transportation to the wedding night room.The entire cost of the honeymoon
and the bride's ring is the responsibility of the groom and/or groom's
parents, as well as any gifts given to the bride. Accommodations for the
groomsmen, whether arriving from out-of-town, or if a destination wedding
is planned, are also the responsibility of the groom. The groom pays the cost
of rental or purchase of his tuxedo.Always an optional expense for the groom's
family, it is commonly expected that the groom's parents are financially
responsible for the rehearsal dinner. Depending on circumstances, the groom
and groom's parents can also offer assistance for a next-day brunch, or they
can choose to pay for particular wedding items, such as the photography,
champagne or cake.Traditional expenses of the bride's familyThe bride's
family is responsible for all other expenses, which include the engagement
party and the rehearsal dinner (if the groom's parents do not pay). They will
cover the entire cost of the reception, including the site rental, catering
fees, beverages, wedding cake, all other flowers and decorations for the site.
The bride's dress, invitations, music for the ceremony and reception, cost
of the church or ceremony site, photography and/or videography, wedding
coordinator, party favors, guest transportation (if needed), and a trousseau
for the bride also come under the responsibility of the bride's family. They
are also responsible for the cost of rooms for the bridesmaids at destination
weddings, or for the rooms of women in the bridal party who are arriving from
out-of-town.Of course, times have changed and many brides are professional
women who, along with their groom, contribute considerably to the expenses
of the wedding. Some are capable of and desire to pay for their own weddings,
splitting costs with their future spouse.Other expensesBridesmaids are
responsible for the cost of their dresses, any alterations and accessories.
They also pay for shower and wedding gifts, as well as the expense of hosting
or co-hosting the bridal shower(s) and bachelorette party.Groomsmen are
responsible for renting their tuxedos, any alterations and accessories. They
also pay for wedding gifts, and hosting or co-hosting a bachelor (or coed
bachelor/ bachelorette) party.Discuss the budget of your wedding up front
with everyone who might participate in covering the expenses. Doing so will
help you make the most of a realistic budget so you can have the touches you
feel are important to your celebration of marriage.,,Buying your wedding
dress can be a daunting experience at the best of times; after all, it's not
something you do everyday. Sometimes the sheer choice and number of styles
can be something of a disadvantage, particularly if you are not entirely sure
what you want?Dress TypesAlthough it sometimes seems that there are thousands
of individual dress styles and shapes there are, in fact, just five basic
dress shapes which are then adapted and fashioned into unique designs. Knowing
about these basic styles, and which will suit you best, will put you at a
great advantage when searching for the perfect wedding gown.A-Line DressAs
the name suggests, this dress shape is based upon the letter 'A' shape, falling
from the shoulders and becoming gradually wider towards the hem. This shape
of dress reduces the effect of body curves and will also make a petite bride
appear taller. An A line dress will also give an illusion of a fuller figure
for tall thin types. Ideal body shape: AllColumn DressIf you are blessed with
a slender shape the Column dress shape will flatter your figure and accentuate
your curves. Perhaps the most versatile of styles, the column dress comes
in a variety of strapless and backless combination's.,Ideal body shape:
Petite, Slender, AthleticEmpire LineThe classic Empire dress is cut with a
high waist band and has a characteristic flowing line, crating an illusion
of length and flowing over curves rather than highlighting them. Ideal for
petite brides, the high waist can help give you a boost in other areas too!
Ideal body shape: Petite, CurvyPrincess LineSimilar in shape to the classic
A-line but constructed with vertical panels which give an effect of a
contoured shape. Perfect if you have a slim waist and want to add an appearance
of a shapely figure. Ideal body shape: Petite, Small waistStraplessThe
classic 'fairytale' dress shape with a nipped in waist and flared skirt giving
an hourglass figure.,Ideal body shape: AllWhere to Buy your Wedding DressOnce
you have an idea of the basic style of dress and look you want to achieve
you'll need to start thinking about your options as to where to buy your
dress?This can be an entirely personal matter; for some brides the cost will
be the most important factor, while for others, the opportunity to try a number
of styles and receive the best advice will be more important.Buying from the
internet will often be the least expensive and most convenient option and
buying from a specialist bridal shop is likely to be the most expensive;
although advice and alterations may be included into the deal, making this
a more attractive choice for many?How Far in Advance to Buy Your DressIdeally
you should buy your dress well in advance of the wedding day which will give
you the necessary time to explore the options and ensure that everything will
be right on the day. However, it's a good idea to wait as long as possible
before having any final fittings as your body shape will undoubtedly fluctuate
as the big day approaches.If buying your dress from a traditional store then
you need to discuss the storage arrangements and particularly what would
happen in the event of an accident or the shop going out of business?If you
are buying on the internet and storing the dress at home then make sure it
is well protected and ensure that your household insurance is sufficient to
cover any mishaps.Your Dress on the DayObviously you'll be ultra-careful to
look after your dress on your wedding day but accidents do happen. Charge
your chief bridesmaid with dress-care duties by ensuring she has a supply
of thread close to hand and, should a spillage occur, to limit the damage
by dabbing with absorbent towels. If the worst does occur then mitigate the
damages as best you can and seek professional help afterward - don't be tempted
to try tricks like treating red wine stains with white wine - it doesn't work
and will do more damage than good. There are few disasters which can't be
fixed later on, so don't panic.What to do with your dress when the Wedding
Day is OverThe big day has been and gone, now what do you do with the dress?
Some brides will prefer to keep their dress as a reminder of the big day while
others may want to let someone else have the opportunity of wearing it.There
are many very good services on the internet where you can advertise your dress
for sale or alternatively, why not donate it to a good charity. Some major
charity stores have their own bridal departments and will put the funds raised
to a very good cause.Whichever option you choose, make sure that you have
plenty of photos taken of you and your dress. Even if the dress is no longer
in your possession it's always good to look back to your happiest day and
you really can't have too many photos of the bride in her dress.Have a great
wedding!,,It's that time of the year again! Time for you to go through your
home and organize everything that has accumulated throughout the year. That's
right; it's time for Spring Cleaning! Whether it's actually spring or the
middle of winter, it's time to get your house in order. This is not an enjoyable
task, but it has to get done. After all, we all enjoy our home more when it
is clutter free. To help you get started, here are some tips and hints to
help you get rid of your old, unwanted stuff, sometimes with minimal effort
from you!Clothes and GarmentsWhether you have a bridesmaid dress from your
cousin's wedding four years ago, or a shirt you bought that didn't fit and
you lost the receipt for, most of us have clothes that we could easily part
with. So get your unwanted t-shirts, jackets, skirts, jeans, and shoes
gathered together into a simple garbage bag. Then, all you need to do is find
a simple donation drop off box for garments. These are very common. Many
charity organizations have them, whether they be Good Will, the Red Cross,
or some other charity. In fact, most of these organizations try to make your
donating as easy as possible, and put drop boxes at many stores or
supermarkets. This makes it easy for you to rid yourself of your old clothes.
Just look for one of these boxes on your way to work or when you're out
shopping, and you can get rid of your clutter with minimal fuss.Stuffed
Animals and Other ToysFor those of us with kids, it seems there are always
more toys then are needed. Some playthings they grow out of, and others they
lose interest in. In that case, it would be better to get those toys to a
child who will better appreciate them. Luckily, many charities encourage us
to donate toys. You will often see toy "drives" where you are allowed to drop
off unwanted items at your local supermarket and the charity will make sure
that the items will get into the hands of those who will appreciate them.
Or if there are no local drives, many churches are happy to take your old
stuffed animals and games off your hands. You could even do a simple search
on the internet and find someone locally to take your toys and get them into
the hands of needy children in other countries.Furniture and Home
AccessoriesThese are often the most difficult items to get rid of. After all,
they are heavy and take up a lot of space. Still, you will be surprised how
grateful others will be take furniture off your hands. Ask around with your
friends and family, and perhaps someone will know a college student who would
be more than happy to a get a free sofa for their apartment or dorm. They'll
probably even transport it themselves! Remember, your junk could be someone
else's treasure. And if you can't find anyone, and are at all tech savvy,
you could put an ad out on one of the many free internet classifieds, such
as Craigslist. These are all great ways to get rid of your heavy furniture
without having to expend much energy or cash on transportation costs. (You
could also sell your old furniture for cash if it's in good condition). And
if you have the ability to carry an item a short distance, you could even
set it at the end of your driveway with a "free" sign on it. Someone will
probably stop by and happily take it off your hands! Furniture doesn't have
to be as difficult to get rid of as you think!So as you can see, no matter
what form your unwanted clutter takes, there's always a way to get it into
the hands of someone who will appreciate it. You can donate them to friends,
family, or acquaintances, give them to a charity to place with the needy,
or simply have someone pick them up from your door! Remember, spring cleaning
does not have to be incredibly difficult. Just keep in mind these tips for
making your clutter someone else's treasure. Good luck!,,Not every bride will
hire a professional to organize her wedding, but that does not mean that you
cannot benefit from their know-how. Over the years, a good wedding coordinator
learns all sorts of nifty tricks that make weddings more beautiful, better
run, and more cost effective. These are some of the tricks of the trade that
wedding planners use.Reuse Ceremony Decorations.Why pay for everything twice
when you can reuse much of your ceremony decorations for the reception? While
your guests are enjoying a fabulous cocktail hour, the vendors can move the
ceremony chairs, altar flowers, and any other decorations you had into the
reception space. Think about how much money you can save by not paying for
duplicate chair rentals and floral displays!Variety is the Spice of Life.If
there is one thing that every planner strives to do it is to create a wedding
that is unique, not cookie-cutter. A simple way to do this on your own is
to break up the sameness of repeated elements with some variations. Rather
than having the same centerpiece design repeated for a dozen tables, pick
three centerpiece designs with similar flowers, but of varying heights.
Scatter those around the room for table decorations that will give the whole
space depth and visual interest. The same goes for your bridesmaids. Pick
complementary dresses and sets of bridesmaid jewelry in several styles. The
variations in bridesmaid dresses and jewelry sets will allow each of your
attendants to shine as an individual, yet the coordinating styles will still
create a harmonious effect for the processional.Personal Touches are the Most
Meaningful.Anytime you can add an element to your wedding that has sentimental
meaning to you, the better. Again, most of these ideas are quite easy for
the bride planning her own wedding to pull off. Pin your grandmother's
favorite brooch to your bouquet wrap. Serve your aunt's homemade
cherry-limeade at the reception. Dance to the same first song that your
parents did. Name the tables after your favorite books. Be sure to clue your
guests in to the special nature of your personal elements by mentioning them
in the wedding programs or with artful notes explaining their origins.Great
Food is a Must.Wedding planners have attended enough receptions to know that
if the food is not delicious, the guests will be grumbling. Even worse than
lackluster meals are weddings that do not have enough food. There is nothing
worse than having the food at the cocktail hour run out before the end of
the event! Scrimp in other areas of the wedding as needed, but keep your guests
happy with food that is tasty and plentiful.Whatever your personal style,
these tips will help to make your wedding a grand success. If you have engaged
the services of a wedding planner, great, but if not, you can plan your own
spectacular event now that you know the tricks of the trade. Happy
planning!,,How many couples are stil paying for their wedding on their 5 year
wedding anniversary? Is it worth going into massive debt for your wedding
day? When you get married, there is no good reason to get married to your
overdraft as well. I'm going to show you ways and means of saving money on
planning your wedding, and still having the day you want - without
compromise.I got married in April 2007 - total cost of wedding, just under
£8000. What did we get for that?Exclusive use of a 17th century castle
with 19 bedrooms, including accommodation and full English Breakfast for the
guests (50% discount - getting married on a Sunday) - £2500,A converted
barn with additional 10 bedrooms (reserved the whole barn, and got a discount)
- £600,Wedding gown, tiara, veil, shoes and 3 bridesmaids dresses plus
jewellery (10% discount on wedding dress, 50% sale items bridesmaids dress,
jewellery bought at a home party) - £1100,Bridal hair and make-up (used
local suppliers) - £150,3-course wedding breakfast (50% discount for
a Sunday) - £1800,Unlimited pre-wedding breakfast drinks, and
champagne toast - £350,Classical string quartet (3 hours) -
£350,DJ evening - £200,Flowers for bride, bridesmaids ,
buttonholes and guests tables (re-used altar flowers for top table) -
£220,Photographer - Leather bound wedding album and 200 photographs
(negotiated discounted price for all photos taken). - £650Wow - you
must be thinking. And that's what I thought too. But with a lttle bit of
research and work, it can be posible for everyone.The Money side of things,If
you have to borrow any money to get married, then take a look at 0% interest
credit cards. (yes, they still exist - I have just signed up for one that
has given me £6000 interest free credit until September 2009). You can
then budget and pay off your card over a period of time - without incurring
any interest charges. Check out the best bank loans with the lowest interest
charges.The Venue,If you decide not to get married on a Saturday, there can
be considerable savings. Getting married on a weekday, or bridging the weekend
by marrying on Friday or Sunday reduces the cost of your venue. We got married
on a Sunday, and saved 50% on the overall cost of our reception - venue hire
and meal. If you live in an expensive area - why not get married where it
is less expensive and have your guests travel to the venue of your choice
- that's what we did.Bridal Wear,You don't have to wear new! There is a big
second hand, nearly new bridal market. Oxfam has numerous bridal shops devoted
to the second hand bridal wear market. Check-out the internet for specialist
second hand , nearly new bridal wear directories. You can save upto 75% off
the cost of a new dress. Look out for end of season sales for wedding dresses,
every bridal shop has them to make room for next year's stock. Check out high
street shops for your bridesmaids dresses - especially at sale time. We saved
50% on the bridesmaids dresses because they were in the pre-Xmas sale.Visit
craft fairs for wedding jewellery - there are many crafters who make the most
amazing wedding jewellery at a fraction of the price of a retail shop.Wedding
Stationery,Card craft shops can sell you everything you need to make your
own wedding invitations. I personaly made all of mine. total cost £25.00
for 40 invitiations. Not only that - they are fun to make. Print your own
Save the Date cards by buying some pretty paper postcards (specialist
stationery shops sell them).If you are having wedding favours on the tables,
then these can also act as your place name cards by tying a label on with
the guests name.Wedding favours - checkout the internet for favour bags -
fill with your choice. We chose miniature spirits for the men, and loose
lavendar for the ladies.The Flowers,Buttonholes - if using a single flower
such as a rose, this can be very stylish and elegant - and with a herb sprig
is easy to make yourself.Try clever tricks with candles and lighting before
filling every space in your venue with flowers. If you are marrying in a
registry office, reuse the flowers on the altar table to place on the top
table. Place empty vases on the top table which can then hold the brides and
bridesmaids flowers. Mirrors under vases on guests tables can create a
dazzling effect without using lots of flowers.If you are marrying in a church,
you can decorate the pews with ribbon rather than flowers - considerably
cheaper. Think about using lots of greenery in your floral displays instead
of flowers.Feeding your guests,Difficult one, as the guests will expect a
meal. If you get married late in the day then the wedding breakfast alone
should be sufficient. If you are having extra guests in the evening, then
only cater for 60% otherwise the food (and your money) will be wasted.
Barbeques can be cost effective, buffet style. Hire a hog roast and have a
few salads. If you are thinking of self-catering, then rally around your
friends and relatives and with some helpers and a small wedding, lay on a
finger buffet.The Drink,Some venues will let you supply your own drinks
without penalty. A trip to France can save you loads. Be careful though, as
some venues will charge you corkage, which can then cost more than having
the venue supply the wine.Ask the venue to quote you for a package that
includes drinks - welcome drink, wine during the meal, and champagne toast.
Most guests these days expect to pay for their drinks outside of the wedding
breakfast - so you can set up a paid bar.Happy Snaps,Don't be tempted to buy
disposable cameras for the guests tables and have those as your wedding
photos. They are usually of poor quality, and not pictures of what you want.
If you have some friends who are interested in photography, then appoint them
to be your official photographers. Digital cameras are great - they can
download the photos onto a smart stick, and there are numerous internet sites
that will create a wedding album for you.We could have saved even more on
costs, by not paying for guest accommodation, or not having unlimited wine
before the meal - but that was our choice. I hope this gives you some ideas
on having the wedding you want without breaking the bank, and for some great
suppliers to the wedding industry,., The groom or his parents pay for expenses
associated with transportation of the bride and groom to the ceremony and
reception, most of us have clothes that we could easily part with,Ask the
venue to quote you for a package that includes drinks - welcome drink, wine
