The Ultimate Wedding Guide
Your big day is about to arrive, and you want it to be perfect. Your head is filled with ideas and aspirations for your wedding, but you have no idea where to begin.
One trail of thought leads to another, then to another, and the wedding jitters start to creep in. Sound familiar?
Don’t worry; every couple’s been there. But we’re here to make sure you don’t have to go down that route.
Here is the ultimate wedding guide to help you ensure that your preparations are nice and smooth.
Phase One - Where Do I Begin?
Congratulations, you’re now engaged. But what’s next? After you’ve gotten over the initial joy, it's time to bring your head back into the game and officially begin your preparation.
And let us be the first to tell you, the first step is the hardest, but it gets easier afterward.
This conversation may be a bit awkward and hassled, but it's best to get it out of the way as early as possible.
Sit down with your partner and determine your wedding’s budget.
From here, the date and venue will then fall into place automatically based on that budget, and it will make your life a lot easier.
Prepare a Guest List
You have a budget, and you have a venue. Now, you just need to figure out who’s coming.
This one should be easy, shouldn’t it? Well, it depends. Some people like to invite almost everyone they know to their wedding. In contrast, others like to stick to close friends and family.
Do whatever you prefer, but make sure to keep your budget in mind.
While you’re at it, make sure to pick out your invitation cards as well.
Book a Caterer, Photographer, and any Additional Entertainment
Many couples say this part is the most enjoyable one. Schedule in your taste-tests, and savor the delicacy of food and wedding planning.
Phase Two - It’s Getting Closer!
Your plans are starting to show a bit of structure, and it's time to dive head-first into the details.
It might take a while for you to pick out the perfect dress, so it’s better to get a head-start on the process.
Rest assured, we’re sure you’ll look gorgeous anyways! Once you do, accessorize it with the jewelry and shoes of your choice, and book yourself the best make-up artist you can find.
Buy your Rings
This is something you hold onto for life, and you’d want it to be beautiful without having to sell your kidney for it.
Browse to your leisure, and get the perfect ring for your partner.
Decide on Witnesses, Priests, etc.
The union needs to be legal, and you need to make sure your local church has someone available when you need it.
It’s easy to forget the essential tasks when you’re absorbed in the merriment.
Phase Three - Oh No, There’s Barely Any Time Left!
Don’t lose your cool. You’ve been doing great so far, but you need to pull a few last strings to seal the deal.
Plan The Accommodation
Trust us; there’s barely going to be time later. Better to get it done in the early works.
Write Your Speeches
Speeches can add so much more to your already-special-day. They can bring out the best emotions between you and your partner.
So, we suggest planning ahead and figuring out what you’d like to say so that you can bring even more emotion to your wedding.
Lastly, it’s necessary to comb over the details, tie up loose ends, and ensure everything is in place.
Call your caterers, florists, entertainers, and guests to get a quick confirmation that everything runs smoothly.
Phase Four - It’s The Big Day!
It’s finally here, and you’ve put in all your time and effort to ensure everything runs smoothly... But oh wait, you forgot one last essential thing.
Count to ten, relax, and enjoy one of the best days of your life. This goes without being said, but it’s relatively common for brides and grooms to spend their day in a nervous frenzy.
Make sure you’re not that person because this day is never coming back. Just enjoy it to its fullest and create the perfect memories this day deserves.
