A wedding is nothing that you can take lightly. It’s the most important day in someone’s life. The day they must have dreamed of ever since childhood, and therefore is required to be nothing less than perfect. Of course, it’s a huge day and there are infinite responsibilities that you just can’t tackle alone and your partner won’t be enough. You will need a lot of time so it is recommended that you start a year before at least to allow yourself the time to face all the problems that are going to come till you set off to your happily every after.
Beginning the Planning Stage:
Weddings are delicate situations that require the utmost caring and thought. You can’t expect to have a shotgun wedding go as perfectly and comfortably as a pre-planned one. Try making a folder or binder that contains all the data about what you would like to choose between for your wedding. The items to put in are all the important ones. Wedding dresses, wedding bands, foods, musicians you would want at your wedding and other ideas that you find worth saving for a discussion with your partner later. Setting a budget is top priority as it clarifies exactly how much you are going to spend and on what. Don’t go all out on your wedding. Having a marriage is better than having a wedding.
When you complete planning the budget, start picking out the guests you would want to invite to your wedding. This is a long procedure and often couples find themselves trying to explain to a friend or relative why they forgot to invite them. Give yourself enough time to completely figure things out and not make any mistakes along the way. Hiring yourself a wedding planner can be a good idea as they are professionals who can deal with messy and quick situations at once. Wedding planners can also help keep you calm as they know how things work in a wedding. Start researching photographers, videographers and caterers that you would like to cover your wedding.
Booking the Scene:
You will have to consider the vacancy slots on things very seriously. Try to start at least half a year before your wedding. You will have to coordinate with your venue (unless you’re planning an outdoor wedding) , wedding officiants, photographers, videographers, musicians and performers etc. to come up with the perfect time that things align for you. Reserving hotel rooms before the wedding are crucial too. Out of town guests are always facing accommodation problems and you don’t want an unattended family weighing in on your wedding night trying to find a place to stay. Think of the honeymoon you want and plan for its budget, timing, destination accordingly.
A lot of people tend to forget the little details like the florists and the transportation. Have your wedding planner coordinate with all of the people who are to arrive at the scene. The wedding planner will also help you pick out the food, dessert and the cake for the wedding.
Making sure that you get married perfectly is the dream. But it’s a dream that requires a lot of stress and hard work. You will need to have a handle on everything. Nothing can go wrong. Try to get cameras, walkie talkies and even WhatsApp spy apps to monitor everything if you must. Don’t let the one day of your life you’re supposed to be happy become the day you’re stressed out.
