The Ultimate Guide For Planning The Perfect Wedding

Congratulations if you’re about to tie the knot! Planning the ideal wedding is the main goal, but with all the endless options, family drama and deadlines, it can get frustrating for both the bride and groom. The major challenge is not knowing where to start; whether you should pick a venue, send out the invitations or look for the perfect wedding dress. Fear not, because we are here to help you with this wonderful journey. Here are a few of the important steps you need to consider:
Devise a plan
Sit down with your family and friends, together with the grooms parents and discuss the layout of the ceremony; whether it’s going to be a destination wedding on the sandy beaches of Jamaica or an elegant dinner in a ballroom. Talk about all the ideas you have in mind and pay attention to others suggestions because you can incorporate both the plans so that everyone is happy. Design the invitation and what sort of décor you want to have. The endless decision making can get overwhelming, but don’t forget to tell your bridal party to devise some good hens night ideas. All this will give you a rough idea about what to expect. Hence, it’s a good place to start.
Timing is of the Essence
You may have the perfect idea all planned out, but none of it would matter if you don’t have deadlines and the different seasons all mapped out. First and foremost, if you’re having the wedding during summer then you need to see if the venue and caterers are not booked at that time. If it’s winter then having an outside wedding would not be such a great idea because you don’t want your guests to be freezing throughout the ceremony. Therefore, look into what the weather condition might be like on that day so that you won’t have any last minute surprises.
Let’s Talk Money
A dream wedding quite often comes with a hefty price tag. Although most of you have a budget in mind, you might want to consider the fact that it’s going to be much more than you think. For that reason, the plan you made at the start would come in handy because it would give you an estimated overall cost. If you’re head set on sticking to the budget, a few tips would be to get help from your relatives; perhaps if you have an aunt that can sew, you might as well ask if she could lend a hand with any alterations as opposed to paying a thumping for it or if you have an artist in the family, you could have your invitations sorted.
Capturing the Moments
Booking a photographer is certainly essential in order to make all those beautiful moments last. Ask around or do some online research on a few suitable people for this job. Also, keep in mind that it would be a wise choice to get a hold of them early because when the wedding season kicks in, you may miss the chance to get someone that fits your style.
The Bridesmaids
This is of course an exciting moment for your friends when they find out they will be a part of your bridal party. Inform them about what they have to do and the fact that it will require a lot of their time and energy. Hence, if they are unable to do so, let them know that it’s okay to decline. They also have the exciting job of coming up with some surprising hens night ideas, so I don’t think anyone would want to miss out on that.
This special day is going to be filled with tears of joy and laughter and the journey in getting there plays a pivotal role. Having said that, remember to take a break once in a while and most importantly don’t forget to have fun through it all.
