Whether you consider your wedding day to be the biggest day of your life or not, everyone wants it to be a stress-free day.
The best way to enjoy your day without stress is to be proactive with your wedding plans. The more you plan in advance, the less is likely to go wrong on the day.
However, if you Google ‘how to plan a wedding,’ you’ll instantly be overwhelmed with too much advice to ever take on board. That’s where we come in; we’re here with a simple guide to preparing for your wedding date and planning a special day.
If that would help you, read on to find out more.
Set a Wedding Budget
If we’re being realistic, the limiting factor for most weddings is cost. Your first decision to make is how much you’re willing to spend.
Before beginning the wedding planning process, setting a budget is essential. After all, you wouldn’t want to plan your dream wedding to realize you can’t afford it.
When you’re setting a budget, consider how you’ll split funds between the wedding and honeymoon. Is having a lavish big day or a luxurious beach get-away more important to you?
Design Your Dream Wedding
Next, it’s time to begin dreaming up your perfect wedding. Will it be luxurious or understated? Large or intimate? Traditional or modern? In your home town or destination wedding?
Don’t get too caught up in the details; you can get to that later. All you need to do is brainstorm a few ideas for your wedding vision (don’t forget to check in with your fiance to ensure they’re on the same page).
Find a Venue
Next, it’s time to look at venues. Do you want a church or a cathedral? A beach or a forest? Your garden or a park?
If you’re looking for a wedding yurt, wedding yurt hire can be arranged through online vendors.
The world is your oyster – start looking at venues well in advance because they get booked quickly.
Hire a Wedding Planner
Finally, it’s time to take some stress off your shoulders and hire a wedding planner. These professionals can plan a wedding in their sleep. They know exactly what does and doesn’t work, and when to do it.
Show them your wedding vision, and they can make it a reality. It may seem like a costly upfront expense, but you’ll likely save money in the long run as they find all the best deals for you.
Start Your Wedding Plans Today
How many wedding plans do you already have in place? The wedding planning process can take anywhere from a week to a year, so it’s time to write your schedule and work out how your vision will come to fruition.
Planning and preparation is the key to the perfect day.
