To help you on this endeavor, here is a list of all the things that you must definitely not put-off till the last hour:
This is the most important aspect of planning for a wedding, or any big event for that matter. Determine how much you will be able to spend. Take into account your family’s contribution (if you want any) and your own financial capability. To begin with, you can make a list of all the big expenses that you will have to make, like venue, food and guest accommodation.
What is a wedding without the perfect wedding dress! You may have an idea of what you want, but to get a dress that fits you and suits you well, you need some time- at least ten months. Your wedding dress shopping doesn’t end at you saying yes to your dream dress. You need to schedule time for subsequent fittings - sometimes three or more - and alterations.
3. Food and entertainment
Caterers should be on your list of first priorities. If your wedding venue does not provide its own catering service, you will have to find one yourself. In addition to that, the entertainment for the wedding should also be looked after in the beginning of the planning phase. Choosing musicians and photographers is a time-consuming activity because you will have to vet all potential choices before you decide on your favorite.
4. Guest list
Even though you don’t need to send the wedding invites right away, having a guest list prepared at the earliest is a great way of managing the event. One of the most convenient ways to do so is to make a database containing the guests’ names and contact information. Then you can add or remove people from the list without any hassle. The database can also contain other relevant information like RSVPs, gifts and so on.
If you have watched Bride Wars, you would know what happens when you can’t book a venue at the right time. Whether you want to get married in a church or a barn, book the place as soon as possible. Venues should be decided based on capacity and travel convenience. Also, you need to decide if you want to have your ceremony and reception at two different places, although having them at the same place is more suitable.
The process of planning a wedding is almost as intense, if not more, as the strength of your wedding vows. However, in some way, it prepares you for what is to come ahead - your marriage.
