Planning a wedding is usually a lot of work, especially if you are hoping to plan an amazing event. It requires wedding planners to be organised and to invest a lot of time and effort. Millions of tasks will need to be co-ordinates all at once, in order for your big day to proceed seamlessly and without a hitch. As such, preparation is often key.
In this blog, we’ll point out 3 key elements that you should consider and plan for way ahead of time, when creating your dream wedding.
1. Likes and Dislikes
Soon after your engagement, unless you have to speed up the wedding planning process for any other reason, you will be afforded a grace period. As such, this will be the time to spend hours with your spouse enjoying your engagement and swooning in the beauty of your new found love. However, this does not mean that you should be idle in this period. During this time, before the wedding planning shenanigans truly get crazy, you should spend a little time talking with your spouse about each other’s preferences. Talk casually about your likes and dislikes in relation to a venue, menu type, colour scheme, décor options, cake flavour and any other wedding details you’ll be planning later. This will help you narrow down your selections before it’s time to make all of the proper decisions, which can save you a lot of time in the future.
2. Consider Your Finances
Next up, as you get into the full swing of wedding planning, it’s very important to start by having a conversation with your spouse about your finances. The money that you have available to spend on your wedding will affect every major decision from your venue, to your theme to your menu etc. As such, it’s very important to come up with a realistic budget at the very beginning. This will help you ensure that your wedding preparations won’t put you into debt.
3. Choose a Date and Venue
At this time, the full work load associated with the wedding planning process will be approaching. As such, it will be very important to make the two most important decisions first, before everything gets crazy. You should spend these final moments selecting a date and venue, then prepare for the onslaught of various wedding details that are sure to follow.
