Is it time for you to tie the knot? Hooray! Congrats! You’ve probably dreamed of your own wedding and how everything will be beautiful and perfect. And it can be like that. Of course, at first it may seem a bit overwhelming. Planning a wedding and all that. But, it doesn’t have to be difficult. Take a look below at a handpicked selection of pro tips that will be of great help for organizing a wedding!
First of all, know your limits budget-wise. Your budget will be the driving factor when it comes to your wedding. The vast majority of decisions you’ll make depend on how much you’re willing to spend. That’s why you need to come up with a budget. If you have someone from the family eager to contribute, consult that person and figure out how much they’re willing to spend. If you decide to do it all on your own, sit down and take a good look at your finances. Once you know the number, stick to it. Do not overspend!
This one is just for you and your SO. You two need to have a talk! Brew some coffee, sit down and consult your special person about what your three most important things about wedding are. Do the two of you like music a lot? Surely you’ll have to hire a good DJ then. Is it the food or the drinks? You want to provide your guests with a proper treat for their senses? Make a priority list and see where you both are willing to compromise. This way you’ll manage to stay within your set budget.
Pick a place
Some couples usually have their wedding right there where they currently live. Some on the other hand like to go away somewhere and find a venue far away from home. It basically comes down to the personal preferences of you two. However, whatever you opt for, make sure that you choose a good venue that will suit you and your guests. Don’t stray too far from the majority of your guest list. A wedding is nothing without guests. This could be said for every type of event planning. Imagine having to fly to the other side of the country for an event of this kind? Surely that wouldn’t be so nice. But if you’re planning a wedding abroad, for example, expect that a lot of people simply won’t be able to come. So, be careful with the venue.
Create a team of helpers
It is your big day, there is no doubt about it. However, do know that you don’t have to do all the hard work by yourself! Family and friends are always willing to step in and help you with whatever you might struggle when it comes to planning. Getting help from people you trust is perfectly fine. When you trust someone you’ll be honest with them if some things aren’t just like you want them to be. So, do not hesitate to seek help from your dearest folks!
Having a master checklist of tasks that you need to cover for your wedding is a huge hack! You can find numerous examples online, good checklists aren’t hard to find. So, choose one and adapt it to your own wedding. Also, when you put together this checklist, don’t rush with any of the tasks. Okay, yes, it might be exciting to hire the photographer first but think for a second before you act. Maybe there are some more important things to do before the photographer? Just don’t rush and it will be fine.
It may be overwhelming but it’s not as difficult as it may seem. This is your special day you’re planning. It will be fine. Just don’t forget to enjoy it when it comes. Good luck!
