Getting married is quite a task. There are many things to consider when you’re finally going to tie the knot with your special loved one. Although the immediate thought process is “Who is going to cater the wedding reception?” and “Who is going to be our DJ?” it should be noted that there are many other things to consider when getting married. Also there is a great amount of ways to save money during the planning of a wedding so be sure to read ahead and you’ll see just what we’re talking about.

One item that people often put off until the last minute is their hair and makeup artist. For some reason people believe that it’s quite an easy task to go and find somebody who can do hair and makeup and although that may be the case, it’s generally not something that people consider to be easy to do with all of the stress happening in a wedding.
Some questions to consider during your wedding planning are as follows:
- Do I need an on site makeup artist?
- Do I have time to travel to a salon or do I need them to come to me?
If you answered yes to the first question then surely you’re in need of a makeup artist that comes to your home or place that you and your bridesmaids are getting ready. Don’t worry, it’s not expensive as you may think. Most makeup artists will travel to on site destinations barring that they’re in the area!
If you are unsure on the second question then it might be a great idea to ask yourself if you’re scheduling your wedding day properly. Generally for a four o’clock wedding the bride and bridesmaids begin getting ready around 8:30 AM or 9:00 AM. This allows them to have more than enough time to get ready and to allow them time to eat a quick snack before the festivities begin!

Another item that is often over looked in regards to the big day is transportation. If the bride or groom’s family is from out of town and has traveled to your city for your wedding day then it might be a nice idea to provide transportation for them to get to and from the ceremony and reception.
Generally the wedding guests will stay at the preferred hotel under a room block and it will only cost a couple hundred dollars to order a party bus, shuttle bus, or limousine to shuttle guests to and from their destination in 15 to 20 minute intervals.
As you can see, there are plenty of things that are over looked in regards to planning a wedding.
