Get a grip on the approximate number of guests you will invite before settling on a venue. This will ensure theres ample space for your crew. As a rule of thumb, allow for 25 to 30 square feet per guest. That may seem like a lot, but its really not if you count the space you will need for the tables, bustling waiters, the band and a dance floor.
Take advantage of the high cost of weddings and sign up for a credit card with a rewards program. Whether it gives you airline miles or great shopping deals, consolidating all wedding-related purchases to this card will help you accumulate thousands of rewards points (which could be used for your honeymoon).
When it comes to smart casual for men, go for casual trousers such as chinos or suit pants. In summer, you could even wear shorts. They can accompany their trousers with a long-sleeved shirt, and an optional jacket and tie. If you must wear denim, go for the stylish dark blue, tailored type.
