The Ultimate Wedding Planning Process Guide
Just got engaged and you are wondering where to start? Do not worry; we have it all in place for you.
Figuring out how to plan a wedding can be very difficult at first. Seeing and experiencing someone else’s wedding as a guest is different from planning your own wedding! It’s a whole different ball game. If you’re in a fix and not sure where to start planning, here’s our trusty Clarence House guide on how to start the ultimate planning process for a wedding.
1. Organize Your Thoughts, Ideas, and Plans
The organization is very important when planning your own wedding. There are quite a lot of items to keep track of. You need to identify your vendors as it’s important to have the right people to ensure your big day flows smoothly. Decide your budget from the get-go and do your best to stick to it.
2. Find an Excellent Maid of Honor or Groom’s Man
You need to choose a very good maid of honor and groom’s man as these two will be your support system as a couple. If they are willing, they will be your assistants and help you manage the whole process, so that you are not overwhelmed.
3. Get Your Priorities Right
There are so many things to do when it comes to planning your wedding. Sit down with your fiancé and select five things that are important and which you would like to see happen at your wedding. These will become your priorities, the importance of other matters will be seen in the light of these five issues.
4. Book a Wedding Venue in Time
The wedding venue is one of the biggest expenses and such a critical factor in getting everything else to fall into place. Begin touring wedding venues early, as soon as you have your budget figured out so that you don’t miss out on the venue of your dreams. Sydney wedding venues like Clarence House’s The Lemnos and The Victorian get booked fast for a reason!
5. Have a Wedding Folder or Binder
One of the key things to help you plan is to pick the right wedding planning materials. Do plenty of research, going through bridal, fashion, food books and magazines. Keep the printed documents in a ring-bound format.
6. Hire a Competent Wedding Planner
You also need to hire a good wedding planner for your special day. This person will help you coordinate and plan most of your printed items, like invitation cards, textiles, decorations, designs and color choices.
7. What Type of Wedding Do You Want?
Ask yourself key questions about the kind of wedding ceremony you want, the number of guests, venue, type of music, catering and food options, season and time of the wedding, source of funds and number of the bridal team. Consult wedding experts and blogs for inspiration.
