Planning a wedding is a hugely important event for a great many people all throughout the United States. After all, up to 44,000 people get married for each and every weekend that passes by here in the United States alone. In total, this means that very nearly two and a half million people get married on a yearly basis in the U.S. – let alone in the rest of the world as we know it.
Planning a wedding can be a exciting and romantic time in a person’s life and for many a couple – but it can also be a very stressful one as well. Unfortunately, there can be a great increase in stress as the wedding planning process continues on – in fact more than half of all soon to be married brides have noted that they have found wedding planning to be more stressful than they originally thought that it might be. It only makes sense that this would be the case, as there are a great many details that must be decided upon for each and every wedding that takes place all throughout the country. At the end of the day, taking time to plan out the wedding is essential, even if it means having a longer period of engagement. Even just taking up to 11 hours a week – the average – to dedicate to wedding planning is something that will more than pay off at the end of the day.
For one thing, you’ll need a considerable period to be engaged if you’re looking to find your perfect venue. After all, it has even been suggested that the venue should be booked AT LEAST a full nine months before the wedding actually takes place. Wedding venues can book up quite quickly and so securing your spot at your ideal venue is an absolute must as soon as you know what this ideal venue is.
You’ll also, of course, want to decide how many people you’re inviting to this wedding. On average, a typical wedding will have just over 150 guests, but this number will vary quite considerably from wedding to wedding. For one thing, some people want large elaborate parties, to which they will invite just about everyone that they know. On the other hand, however, many people feel a strong desire for having a more intimate and pulled back wedding, and might invite considerably fewer people than the national average of 156.
No matter how many guests you ultimately invite, you must take this number into consideration for other aspects of planning, such as the venue you rent and the casual catering that you employ. Food is, after all, an important part of many a wedding and therefore a critical decision to make during the wedding planning process (to say the very least). As a matter of fact, more than half of all soon to be married brides are prioritizing the provision of excellent food for their wedding guests.
If you’re looking to provide an ideal dining experience that just about anyone can enjoy, consider the inclusion of tacos. Tacos, a type of Mexican cuisine, have grown immensely popular all throughout the United States. In fact, up to 10% of all restaurants in this one country alone will sell at least one type of Mexican food, likely to be tacos or even burritos in many a dining establishment. In addition to this already impressive and convincing fact, up to four billion total tacos are consumed in the United States alone – all over the course of just one year. In the years that are to come, these numbers are only likely to keep increasing with time.
As is becoming more and more popular with each passing year, serving taco sides as a late night snack is also very much an option. Tacos can be a great way to end the night, as they are both filling and quick to eat all at once. For guests who have been dancing and drinking and enjoying the wedding, the addition of taco catering is likely to make it all the better at the end of the day, truly making your wedding one to remember.
