Planning for a wedding can be stressful if you have not put the right things into place. You can make things easier by following these tried and tested tips.
Start Planning Early
There are exceptions when you are dating someone who is spontaneous, and you suddenly decide to have a wedding. If things are different and you and your fiance decide to have a wedding, you should go ahead and choose a date then start planning. Things like finding the right attire, choosing the bridesmaids and all the little details can take time and energy if there is no proper planning.
Create a Folder
You should have a folder that has samples of what you want for your wedding, the theme, decore, venue, and many more. You can keep enriching the folder or removing what you feel is not working. You can also share it with your friends and wedding planner so that they can help with the planning.
Come up with a Budget
Do not go on a spending spree for your wedding before determining how much you plan to spend on the overall event. Otherwise, you will end up buying what you do not need, and sinking into debt before your marriage kicks off. Consult with your spouse about how much you should spend on the wedding.
Work on the Guest List
You should embark on working on the guest list as soon as possible so that you give them enough time to reserve or send their apologies if they are not coming. Knowing the number of guests who are likely to come helps in determining the budget.
Start Bookings and Reservations
To avoid missing out on your favourite venue or preferred wedding planner, you should start booking as soon as possible. Have a backup plan in case things do not go as planned.
