Everything is important here: how the newlyweds look, what they treat the guests with, how interesting the entertainment program is. The success and the right atmosphere of the wedding directly depend on how you make up the scenario of the wedding celebration. Therefore, it will not be superfluous for the bride and groom to take care in advance of preparing an event plan for their holiday.
Preparing for the wedding
Each wedding celebration begins with preparation: in advance it is necessary to determine in what format your wedding will be held, what competitions you would like to see. Learn an example scenario of how, according to tradition, preparations should be made for a wedding celebration before a trip to the registry office:
- The bride and groom spend the night separately from each other. The future spouse should not see his bride just before the wedding.
- At this time, the bride takes the finishing touches to restore beauty, tidy the wedding dress.
- The morning on the wedding day of the newlyweds begins early to bring their appearance in perfect view before the celebration.
- As a rule, already at this early hour a wedding photographer is invited. He holds a morning photo shoot with the bride. Then begins the first wedding ceremony - the ransom.
To colorfully design an invented scenario for a wedding, you will need props. This is important because a little theatricality is designed to produce the desired effect on guests during the holiday..
- To implement the conceived part of the wedding scenario and save money, look for the props among your old things. You may be able to find a samovar, an old chest or a basin that is deformed from time to time. All this will come in handy for fun wedding contests in the script with the mother-in-law, trials of the groom during the bride redemption, other games at the wedding with guests.
- For competitions props must be prepared independently. Draw posters in the wedding style for the design of the entrance, create drawings for the implementation of various competitions for the redemption of the bride according to the scenario of the holiday. You should also think about costumes that come in handy for funny contests, according to the scenario, with dressing men to women.
Guests of the bride gathered at the entrance to the house to meet the groom. The groom arrives with his surroundings, comes to meet. A friend (witness) says:
- Good fellow granted. They say that you have a good product here. Our merchant is excellent: handsome, young, smart, generous, rich, almost military.
- The goods may be found, however, how much do we know that your merchant is as you describe. They did not hear, did not see, did not have the honor to be convinced. Therefore, let your merchant prove himself in practice and pass several tests..
- Well, in men it’s written on the family, to pass the tests - we are ready!
- Wedding Test No. 1: «Love is strong». Give the groom a wet towel with the words:
- Show, groom, the strength of your love for the bride: tie a towel as tight as you love her.
The groom is struggling to tie. All guests should encourage him, forcing him to tie more tightly. After that, the witness says:
- I see love is strong! Now untie it to show how fast you'll sweep all the squabbles out of the house.
- Wedding Test No. 2: «Gift for the bride». A basin is placed in front of the groom. Friends words:
- You boast that you are generous - so show what the biggest gift you are ready to give your lover, but keep in mind: this should be a gift of her dreams.
The groom must guess that it is he himself and sit in the basin. And if not, then ask for money for a hint.
- Wedding Test No. 3: «Footprints». Lay out various painted footprints on paper at the doorstep. Friends words:
- A lot of girls live here, so they trampled on. Find one trace and take your beloved.
The groom must find the trail of the bride. For every misfire - a cash redemption.
- Wedding Test No. 4: «Almost rich». Friends words:
- If the rumor here says that you are almost rich - now write from your state the name of your bride. And we honor!
