Getting married is one of the most memorable moments a couple shares. Months of preparation and hard work are often spent to ensure the big day is memorable for all the right reasons. From the right venue to the perfect bride’s bouquet, there’s a plethora of ideas, traditions and people to consider when planning your wedding.
Here are tips for the best wedding day:
Start planning early
Even the simplest ceremony at a registry office requires planning. Depending on the size and location of the wedding ceremony and reception − to give yourself plenty of time and options − start planning six to nine months in advance. Every betrothed couple wants the perfect wedding, so you don’t want to be caught short looking for someone to tailor the dress, provide catering or organise the flowers. By giving yourself plenty of time you can pay more attention to details, sort out your budget and prioritize what needs to be done first. You might want to seek an event planner to make sure everything goes smoothly. There are various event planners throughout the country, particularly in bigger cities like London.
Book dates and venues in advance
To avoid disappointment, securing the date and venue of the wedding should be a priority. The date and venue determine the theme, decorations and the overall look of the wedding. Also, take into consideration the weather or the season when you’re choosing to tie the knot.
Stay organised with a master document
Maintain a master document to keep track of your progress. Start by identifying the main expenses and then create a list of suppliers’ names and their contact details. It will also be easier to compare prices and to choose what best fits your budget.
Try Do-It-Yourself projects
Do-Yourself-Projects bring out the creativity of couples and add a personal touch to party favours and decorations. By doing-it-yourself, you not only bring out creativity but also cut expenses. With the money saved, you can refocus your budget on other priorities.
Having the perfect wedding day does not come easy. With adequate time and planning, couples will have a day they will never forget.
