All couples dream of receiving the blessing of the church to officially become husband and wife. However, with the price tags attached to weddings nowadays, some opt to go for more practical options such as a Kasalang Bayan.
A recent Kasalang Bayan aptly called May Forever: Kasalan sa Lancaster New City, with seventeen participating couples, was held last July 30 in Cavite. Wedding organizers took care of coordinating with the wedding suppliers which greatly took a huge load off the couples who got married.
Here are top four things to remember, as suggested by the wedding organizers of the May Forever: Kasalan sa Lancaster New City, for a stress-free and memorable Kasalang Bayan.
Tip 1 : Coordinate and follow schedules set by your wedding organizers
Strictly following the schedule can never be emphasized enough during weddings, especially if it involves participants outside your circle of family and friends. Your wedding organizers should update you every step of the way and in return, you need to follow the schedules strictly.
Make sure to attend general meetings and rehearsals so you know what will happen every step of the way. Do not also forget to update your entourage and invited guests.
Tip 2 : Arrive on time
Being punctual goes a long way. There will be several couples with you walking down the aisle, so make sure you and your entourage arrive on time to avoid delays in the program. You and your fellow couples won’t feel rushed and you’ll be able to enjoy every moment of the wedding.
Tip 3 : Hair-and-makeup preparation
Hours before the wedding day, the brides will find themselves trapped in a chair with busy hands tugging on their hair and brushes on colorful makeup palettes. Chaotic as it may seem, it’s one of the most exciting highlights of a bride’s day where she gets dolled up.
Before the wedding day, be sure to test different looks to know which suits you best. It will be easier during the wedding day itself once you and your hair and makeup artists have settled on a look that reflects your personality and makes you standout.
Tip 4 : The After-Party
Continue the celebration with your guests by having your own after-wedding party. After congratulating your fellow newly-weds at the church venue, you can treat your guests to a simple after-party where you can do other post-wedding ceremonies such as the couple dance, cake slicing and wine toasting. Take the time to thank each and every one of them who joined you on your special occasion.
If there is enough time, you may also ask help from the organizers to help you out. Just be sure to coordinate with them properly to plan out your after-party.
