Many of us have probably freaked out about Steve Martin’s neurotic and obsessive response to his daughter Annie’s wedding in the 1991 hit Father of the Bride. Diane Keaton plays the role of the mother, and she’s inspired for her daughter to be getting married. And then there’s the wedding planner, Franck, who is good and uptight at what he conducts, but isn’t troubled to cut any corners where the budget is concerned (which stresses Steve Martin’s character out). The full movie is this hilarious, sentimental tug-of-war between carrying on and not wanting life to change. But, it also does a really good job of catching one thing: wanting your wedding day to be just perfect, down to every detail and piece.
When you’re considering your upcoming wedding, what enters your mind? What aspect have you imagined for years that you want to be really perfect?
Is it the dress you’ll use down the aisle? Not only do you want to be beautiful on your wedding day, you want it to be something that is so you– every element of the gown highlighting your style. Plus, it’s going to be seen forever in photographs, so you want it to be something you love.
Is it the invitations, because that’s what you’re sending out to all of your family and friends? This entails finding a fantastic photographer and sifting through all the photos to find a favorite. Then, there’s the whole business of choosing a printer, picking out papers and colors, and getting the format just how you want it.
Do you have a certain flower that you’ve loved your entire life, and it’s the one you like to be the spotlight of your bridal bouquet (and the center of each table spray, too)? Nothing says celebrations quite like flowers, and this could be something you feel pretty specific about and we can’t condemn you.
Selecting a reception venue could be on the top of that list for you. Maybe you want to have the reception at the same place that your cousin had hers, because you fell in love with it and have had your mind made up on that for years. Or, maybe it’s as simple as hosting it in the yard you grew up in, keeping it simple by inviting just a few close friends and family.
Your honeymoon spot may be something you’ve had squared away for a very long time, or it may be something you end up planning together. In either case, it’s sure to be an essential detail because it’s the first trip you’re taking as a married couple and it marks the beginning of your life together.
What is that saying we’ve all heard, that a picture is worth a thousand words? This is particularly true when it comes to necessary events. Having a good photographer at your wedding will be something you’ll be glad you didn’t skimp on later. So, it may be that you love your friend’s work and you’re adamant about having that person capture the day.
Whatever it is … it’s important that the day comes together the manner in which you want it to. And truly, let’s be honest … you probably want all of these aspects to come together to make for one beautiful, memorable day. And when you’re attempting to plan everything out, don’t forget that event transportation is our specialty. Sometimes it’s great to have a way to move the whole wedding party together from the rehearsal dinner to the ceremony to the reception, and we can do that without a problem. While you handle making the rest of your day perfect, let us make sure the transportation is top notch, too!
