Almost every little girl dreams of her wedding. The beautiful white dress, the romantic setting, all the people you love, the delicious food, and your prince charming- it sounds like something out of a fairytale, doesn’t it? When that little girl grows up, she gets to make her fairytale come true. The most important thing she needs to choose to make her wedding perfect is the dress and the menu. Let your guests feast on the most delicious food in the kingdom and their eyes on the fairest of them all.
#1 DON’T run out of magic
The magic is what makes the fairytale special. In your case, your magic can be the theme of your wedding. By choosing a unique theme, you’ll have special options for the wedding menu and the wedding dress. For example, if your theme is Midnight in Paris, you can dress in a classy 20s wedding dress and serve your guests authentic French food.
#2 DON’T neglect the royal dough
You might be royalty for the day, but the coins need to be rationed. The wedding menu will be fairly expensive, so you’ll need to set a budget right away. When it comes to picking the menu, you’ll find it very easy to get carried away with different choices as your taste buds lead the way. After all, you’ll need to choose appetizers, the main course, and the dessert. This all adds up pretty quickly.
To get you a rough idea of what to look for, you should know that the cost of an average menu is around 6000 AUD. Buffets usually cost less, while fancier menus will naturally cost you more. It’s also advisable to set a separate budget for the cake or dessert if you want something more special. The average cost of a wedding cake ranges between 500 AUD and 600 AUD.
#3 DO choose your kingdom
Every future king and queen need land to rule over. The destination of your wedding can be your kingdom at least for a day. The destination is important because it opens up a lot of new doors when it comes to the menu. Instead of chicken and fish, you could have local specialties that your guests will never be able to try again. As well as that, the dress options also multiply.
You could have a breathtaking Indian or Bali wedding. Being Indian for a day will cost you between 20 lakhs to 5 crores, while the average cost of a wedding in Bali is around 20.000 AUD. These prices can include the indigenous food and even traditional attire if you choose so, allowing you to have the most unique menu and dress your guests have ever witnessed.
#4 DO try me
Do you think Alice would have had such a memorable time in Wonderland if she hadn’t kept an open mind? When the bottle said drink me and the plate said eat me, she did. You should have the same kind of attitude towards your special day.
When it comes to choosing your dress, don’t stick to just the pairs that you think you’d be comfortable in. Is there a dress that’s not really your style but makes you wonder how you’d look in it? Try it. You never know what the outcome might be. Also, don’t be afraid to try many dresses of different styles. You may just surprise yourself with something completely different and utterly amazing.
Weddings are one of the most beautiful events you’ll ever host. Two hearts are joined to become one in the most festive and romantic way you can imagine. The little girl’s dream is finally coming true and she gets to live her happily ever after. With true love’s kiss, you’ll be free to ride into the sunset knowing you threw one hell of a wedding for everyone to enjoy. Don’t worry though, your chariot won’t turn back into a pumpkin.
