Sometimes, last-minute planning can work in your favor. The closer your date, the more bargaining power you have. Since most people book their wedding venues at least six months in advance, calling for open dates two months prior to your desired time can save you up to 25 percent. And, Friday and Sunday weddings should cost about 30 percent less than Saturday weddings.
List the brides parents and grooms parents on separate lines, starting with the brides. Since both last names are included in the greeting, you don’t need to use either the bride’s or grooms last name. Of course, the same exception we mentioned above would apply here if either the bride or groom has a different last name than their parents. In that case, list out the full bride’s or groom’s name, in addition to the full names of the parents.
If you are a groom who feels a bit like a fish out of water and in a suit when you are wearing a suit, we’ve got some inspiration to get your wedding plans started. Your partner may have fallen in love with you in your everyday gear, but a wedding is special and it is time to up the ante.
