As soon as the frenzy of the engagement fades away, most brides begin to worry about the big day. The long list of must-haves and must-dos that come with planning weddings may make the castles you’ve been building in the air seem like a no-no.
But with a skilled wedding organizer and a positive mindset, what you once considered impossible may soon start to become doable. Here’s the best way to breakdown this complex process to an achievable task.
1. Plan your wedding YOUR way!
Almost everyone around you will have their opinion on what you should and shouldn’t do. As a result, you may get caught up in a plethora of ideas trying to impress everyone or follow tradition. Forget about their opinions or take only the bits of advice you consider helpful. Otherwise, it is you to decide who to invite, the venue, what foods eat at the reception, and any other thing about your big day.
According to Clevedon Hall, there are many ways to plan a wedding; whatever you want is the most appropriate for you. It’s your wedding planner’s job to organize and execute the perfect wedding as per your needs.
2. Start big… then go small
When planning, begin by dealing with the major aspects of the wedding before narrowing down to the more minor details. Doing the opposite will make the process seem even more complicated. So do not start thinking about entertainment before thinking about the venue. It makes sense and works a lot easier the other way.
3. Pick a venue before deciding on any other thing
You may be too caught up planning for the day’s activities that you might overlook the site. However, it’s best to decide on and book the venue before organizing any other activities. Sometimes, regulations for your desired venue may require that the place is booked in advance or have specific rules for events like weddings. In some cases, venues come with catering services so you may be caught in a tricky situation if you hire a caterer beforehand.
4. Go to your first planning meeting with three possible dates in mind
Having three dates in mind will give you the freedom to reschedule your wedding in case you find the venue had been booked out on your preferred day. Dates may clash, more so if you intend to host the event on a popular venue.
5. Go for local services and amenities to make work easier and save on costs
Save time and money by going for local services and amenities. Shop for goods and services locally to save you the hassle come the big day. Getting services away from your city is a good idea, but it may cause delays on your big day, plus the services may be costly as the providers may factor in transport costs.
Well, who said planning a wedding is an easy task? It isn’t. But any plan you have in mind can be executed with these tips in mind and an experienced wedding planner by your side.
