When it comes to planning your wedding, you’ll always want to make sure that it’s just right. Especially when you have high standards! But it’s not always easy for that to happen. Because there’s just so much for you to think about and decide upon and plan out and then pay for too. So much so, that the entire thing can completely put you off. Even when you have the budget available and you know you want things to be as luxurious as possible. So when you do get engaged and you’re starting to think about the dream wedding that you’d like to have, it’s just so important for you to have great guidelines to keep you sane. You’ll want to know what options you have and where to find the best of the best to bring into your wedding. Because it’s not always fun to have to start from scratch yourself.
Instead, you’re going to want to make this work for you. You’ll want to make sure that you are able to easily consider the options you have, that you can bring together the most gorgeous of plans and professionals and elements of your wedding to make it a complete dream. But what does that involve? And where should you start? Do you know where you should be looking or even what kind of things you need to be planning into the day? Don’t worry if you don’t, because here’s what you need to do.
Know What Theme You Want
So first of all, it’s handy to work out what kind of theme that you want. And while you may not want to go with a very set in stone wedding theme, this can help you to get the right look together. Do you want things to be modern or classic? Do you want things to be country or glamorous? Do you know what kind of colors you want to go for? Getting these things planned out in your mind can help everything else fall into place.
Decide On The Location
Then you need to make sure that you find the perfect location. Do you want to get married nearby? Or do you want a huge wedding in the country somewhere? Do you want a smaller city wedding? Or maybe you want to go abroad? Here, it helps to do a bit of research to see what these weddings look like or what they involve and it can help you to make the choice.
Consider Hiring A Planner
From here, you’re then going to want to work out whether you want a wedding planner or not. Because sometimes, you’re going to get things done more efficiently or better if you have a planning – especially abroad. Like if you want an Iceland wedding, you may need help. Or if you want the most luxurious suppliers, having someone that’s connected can help you.
Figure Out Who To Invite
And then you have the guest list. And this can feel really intense. But it’s just so important for you to feel comfortable with who you’re inviting. Don’t feel pressured if you want to keep things small. Just make sure that you have the guest list of your dreams.
Choose The Dream Venue
Now, you’ll also want to make sure that you book up the dream venue too. Because picking the perfect location doesn’t just do that for you. You may know the location, but now you need to find the specific venue. Think about what kind of building that you want to get married in, or do you want to get married outside? Make sure you tour a few venues to find the perfect place.
Think About Decor
And then, for something that is really important for you, is to make sure that you choose the decor you want for the entire wedding. Sure, your planner will take a lot of this on for you, but you still need to make the decisions. So think about whether you want there to be a ton of flowers or do you want there to be lots of glitz and glam. Your planner can find all of the specifics, but it’s handy to have a look in mind.
Plan The Dream Menu
If you’re a huge foodie, this is going to be so important for you. And even if you’re not, it’s great to be able to get the perfect wedding menu in place too. Think about the food that you really want, meet with different chefs, consider what kind of food you want available throughout the day and just enjoy it.
Choose Your Entertainment
Then you have the entertainment. And for people, this really isn’t going to be the biggest deal. But you still need to know what entertainment you want. So really think about whether you want a band or a DJ or a live string quartet and find the best people to produce the entertainment you want.
Nail Your Look
And then, you’re going to want to make sure that you’re thinking about how you want to look and feel on the day. And this is so important. Because this is often the one thing that will make you feel as if things are perfect or not. So really try to get the perfect dress, find the perfect wedding band, and make sure that you get the wedding party outfits to match your theme. Here, you might find that going to one designer will help you to keep the theme cohesive.
Enjoy It All
But above all else, you’re absolutely going to want to make sure that you just enjoy it all. You should really embrace the planning process and everything about bringing your dream day alive. You definitely won’t want to think too much about how stressful it all is – because if you want your ideal day, you need to get the planning right. So just enjoy it. And most of all, enjoy your day! Don’t let yourself get worked up. Just make sure you’re happy on the day and that you’re taking it all in.
