Your wedding is one of the most critical days in your life. We all want ours to be unique for ourselves and our guests, but planning the day can be incredibly daunting. The wedding industry is involved, and there are so many aspects to get right.
To help you ensure your big day is unforgettable, we have created a guide to planning your wedding, filled with expert insights.
Settle On A Budget Early
Weddings can, and do, outgrow their budgets. A little leeway is essential, but take care to stay within
your means – avoid spending more than you can afford to pay back over time.
As a couple, you should discuss your must-haves and decide on those aspects which demand the biggest investments. Pay more to secure your favorite elements (such as the dress, the venue, the photographer).
Creating a list which ranks the most crucial aspects down to those which are less vital can help you prioritize.
Never Be Afraid To Ask For Help
Your friends and family may well be married, so why not learn from their experience?
Ask for advice and guidance on choosing your venue, planning your wedding breakfast, and other aspects that may seem overwhelming. You may even want to create a guide to planning your wedding as a document, filled with the best bits of advice you receive. Refer to this when you need a little insight.
Do It Your Way
While everyone has a right to their opinion, you don’t have to take suggestions if you disagree with them. You require your big day to reflect your personalities and values – if you feel a particular type of décor or tradition is outside your interests, don’t feel you have to include it.
Focus On The Most Important Person
With all the excitement and buzz surrounding your wedding day, you can easily lose sight of why you are getting married, beginning with.
Your wedding day is about honoring the love between yourself and your partner. This is the most important aspect, so focus on the following question at every stage: what will make yourself and your loved one happiest?
Be Quirky, Be Honest, Be Happy
Many weddings thrive on tradition, but others are quirkier, to reflect the happy couple’s personal interests and passions.
Just because your parents may feel replacing a traditional white cake with a blue or red one is an odd choice doesn’t make it wrong. The bride’s dress doesn’t have to be white or feature a train; the groom’s outfit doesn’t have to include a tie or jacket.
