Planning Your Dream Wedding
Planning an event takes time, but planning a wedding takes a lot of time and a lot of effort, but it is not impossible! Read on for a few tips on planning your fairytale wedding.
Laying out a budget
Kick start your wedding plans with a budget. We’d all love to go all out with the wedding of our dreams, but sticking to a budget helps you decide on a lot of things much faster. Lay out a budget for every item on your list, the dress, the venue, wedding decorations, the DJ, etc. Your spending plan is extremely important, so start on that first.
Every girl dreams of her ideal wedding dress, so the next part of the planning is picking your outfits. You could go shopping with your bridesmaids/groomsmen or visit a tailor to get your custom made outfits done. Buying your outfits online is hassle free and saves time, but contains a risk. Ensure you pick a trustworthy website and that you get your outfits delivered 3 weeks prior to the event in order to avoid last minute disappointments.
Picking out the theme
Pick a theme you feel most comfortable with. The floral arrangements, if any, surround your theme. So does your invitations, cake, your flower bouquets, favours and even the place cards. Scroll through magazines, or visit event planners to help you get an idea. Or you could just search on the internet, and single out the theme you fall in love with.
Then comes the catering, pick out a menu you and your significant other feel the guests will enjoy. Visit caterers and taste the food before making a booking, checkup online on the options available to you when it comes to food and don’t hesitate to think out of the box. Everyone loves a bit of fun when it comes to food. Customize your wedding favours/cake to add that extra fun.
What sort of entertainment are you looking for at your marriage ceremony? A live band or a DJ? Or are you going to settle with a customized playlist from your I-pod? Pick the option that best suits the budget and atmosphere of the marriage ceremony. Decide on what other sort of entertainment will be at your wedding, speeches, or a game? Whatever the case, plan perfectly so that the entertainment runs smoothly as it sets the tone. Appoint a reliable person to be in charge of your big day entertainment.
Your big day should be hassle free, so planning a few months in advance is always a good idea.
