The Details

Things to Consider

  • The invitations and stationary
  • The transportation
  • The flowers
  • The decorations
  • The music
  • The favors
  • The food
  • The cake
  • The send-off

The Transportation

  • Is rented transportation, such as a limousine or fancy car, really necessary? No! Unless is it a detail that is very important to you, skip it. Using your own cars (or borrow nicer ones from relatives) is an easy way to save money.
  • Make sure that the bride and bridesmaids (if traveling to the ceremony already dressed for the wedding) have transportation that is very clean. Watch out for grease and mud as you get in and out of the car. The same is true when traveling from the ceremony to the reception.
  • The get-away car, especially, will be noticed. Therefore it is more important that it be a nice-looking car. Not many people see the bride arrive at the ceremony or the couple arrive at the reception, but everyone sees the couple leave!
