- Decide on Your Theme Early
Choosing a wedding theme will make all the other aspects of your wedding planning come easy. It’ll determine the kind of venue you go for and what decorations to have. It’ll even determine what type of food and drinks you serve at your wedding. Some popular wedding themes include Classic, Rustic, Vintage, Romantic, Country and Boho-chic. Remember to consult with your partner while making your decision. You should make sure the theme you choose is one that you both like.
- Create Your Guest List
Your wedding is exceptional, and we’re sure you want to spend it with your loved ones. The pandemic might mean that your list has to be smaller, but that will only make your wedding more intimate. You’ll also need to make this decision with your partner. Make sure that your guest list has only the people most important to you. That is a great way to make your day special.
- Choose A Date
Everything you’ll do for your wedding hinges on your wedding date. Your planning also depends on it. You cannot book a vendor for a date you are not aware of yet. If you don’t want to choose one yet out of uncertainty, you could broaden your decision a bit. For example, decide the year and the season when you would like to get married and go from there.
- Select A Venue
Do you want to have a wedding where you currently live? You could also plan a destination wedding. Whichever you decide to go for, you’re going to need a venue. The right wedding venue for you is one you both (You and your partner) love. It also depends on your guest list as it should be able to contain you and all of your guests. The right venue should neither too small nor too big.
- Set Your Priorities
When you picture your wedding day, what do you see? Having a clear answer to this question can be very helpful. It will help you decide what to focus on when it comes to your wedding. Amongst your photograph, décor, food and music, which is most important to you? When you set your priorities, they’ll help you determine how to spend. Paying attention to and spending on the things most important to you will guarantee that your wedding is incredible for you.
- Create A Budget
Your budget is the foundation of your wedding planning. Start by doing lots of research. This will help you determine how much things costs and what alternatives there are. After that, decide how much you and your partner will be putting towards your wedding. Next, add how much you’ll be getting as contributions and know your total. You can then start to allocate costs to every item based on your priorities and researched values. Remember to also factor in your theme, number of guests and wedding date. Best of luck!!!
