Your wedding day is one of the biggest events of your life. It makes sense that you want it to be nothing less than beautiful and perfect. Be glad to know there are tips you can apply that will ensure that it’s unforgettable and enjoyable.
Take charge and control so that you get what you want and that you create your dream wedding in the end. Relax and have fun and enjoy the ride because it will go very fast. Follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to planning the ultimate wedding day that you’ll never forget.
Set & Follow A Budget
One wedding planning tip for a beautiful and unforgettable day is to set and follow a budget. Take the time to get your finances in order and know how much and what you want to spend in total. If money is tight but you’ve recently got engaged and want to move forward with having a wedding then consider applying for non-guarantor loans to turn your dreams into a reality. A budget will be useful to have because it can help guide a lot of your decisions and allow you to prioritise and focus on what’s most important to you.
Get Organised & Start Planning
You must get organised and start planning after getting engaged. You don’t want to wait until the last minute to solidify the details and stress yourself out. It’ll be a much more enjoyable experience and you’ll stay more level-headed when you have a plan for tackling what needs to get done. Figure out what requires your attention first and document your tasks with a to-do list and a timeline you can follow. Your day will be beautiful and unforgettable when you take care of all the logistics ahead of time and can relax and enjoy the planning process.
Find the Perfect Venue & Dress
Your venue and dress are key components to having a beautiful and unforgettable wedding day. Research possible venue options in the location you prefer and go visit the places to see them in person. You want to ensure the venue sets the right tone and will go well with your theme and colours. Invite your loved ones to go dress shopping with you to see what you like and what they think looks best on you. While you want to have their opinion, remember you need to feel stunning and comfortable in your dress at the end of the day.
Involve Your Future Spouse
It’s easy to get caught up in wedding planning and do all the work yourself. However, your fiancé may want to help and have good ideas to share. Involve them to take some of the stress and anxiety off your shoulders and to give them a say in what happens on your wedding day. Find out what aspects they care about the most about such as the music or transportation. Assign them responsibilities and let them take the reigns over some of the planning details so you can attend to the tasks you care most about too. You’ll both enjoy your wedding day more when you feel like you worked as a team to plan it.
Focus on the Food & Entertainment
You want to make sure that your guests don’t leave your wedding hungry! (especially the vegan ones!) Therefore, focus on the food and entertainment if you want to win them over and throw a wonderful party. Have plenty of food options and choices and ask about any food allergies or special preferences on your RSVP card. It’s wise to have food out right away during the cocktail hour if people are drinking. You might also want to think about having late-night food out if there will be dancing for a long time. Enjoy going cake tasting and choose a dessert that you know will be a hit with your guests.
Ask for Help
You shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help even though you’re the bride. It’s wise to enlist some help from your mother and your bridesmaids and give them roles and responsibilities they can take care of for you. Open up and be honest about how much of the planning you can take on and where you need assistance. It may also be in your best interest to work with a wedding planner or to hire a day-of coordinator who can ensure all goes smoothly and as you hope. The more organised you are the easier it’ll be to see where you need help and who will be the best person for the job.
You’re going to be very busy and likely a bit overwhelmed at times when you’re planning your wedding. (especially in the middle of the pandemic!) Therefore, you must practise self-care and attend to your own needs and health during this stressful and exciting time. You can have a beautiful and unforgettable wedding day when you’re well-rested and have a lot of natural energy to carry you through the final days in front of you. Hit the gym, meditate, and journal as ways to reduce and manage your stress and mental and physical health. Your dress will not only fit better when you eat right and exercise but you’ll feel fantastic too. You’ll be able to keep your emotions in check and can avoid outbursts or saying words or taking actions you may later regret.
Use these tips to ensure that you can plan and have a beautiful and unforgettable wedding day to be remembered! You’ll have no regrets and will be able to enjoy yourself more when you start preparing early and take care of these essential details first and foremost. Understand that there will be challenges along the way but keep it all in perspective and remember what the day is all about in the first place to help you stay calm. Lean on your future spouse for support and practise open and honest communication so you’re on the same page throughout the planning process. and… Enjoy your day!
