The wedding day you plan should be the most memorable day of your life for all of the positive reasons behind throwing a wedding. It’s important that you get this day right and that doesn’t necessarily mean spending thousands of dollars on a day. Of course, everyone does it because everyone wants their wedding day to be perfect, but does perfection equal a big budget? 

Well, without proper planning, you won’t be able to shine and entertain your guests in the way you might have hoped to but the experience of wedding planning can be daunting. In fact, it’s this that pushes most people into eloping! From booking your wedding to be hosted by Father Adam Park to ensuring that you have the right chair covers, you have a lot to organize to ensure that your wedding goes exactly the way you’d like it to go. With this in mind, here are four great tips for planning your wedding.

  1. Get prepared with a list. You need to write as many lists as possible to keep up to date with your plans. You need to know how you want your day to go and that means making lists. Lists will assist you with everything from vendor planning to creating the right wedding menu. Lists will give you everything you need to guide you through your planning process and with every list, you can tick things off as you go.
  2. Be realistic. From your budget planning to thinking about the things you want, you need to be realistic. Can you get fancy cars? Can you pay for the top of the line wedding? Can you also fit everything in during the timeframe you want? There are so many things that could go wrong with a wedding and knowing this will be important!
  3. Don’t forget to allocate every task a timeframe. Allotting time for each task, from wedding dress shopping to flower choices, will be important if you want to have the dream wedding. As the big day gets nearer, you’ll feel like you have done everything right, and if you are careful with your schedule and planning, you’ll manage your time frames correctly.
  4. Ask for as much help as you can. Don’t plan your wedding alone. If you want it to go well, then you have to ensure that you are asking for help from all of the right places, not the wrong ones. You can get your friends and family involved and get your groom to do his bit, too. Weddings are literally a career for some people, so just one person should never be in charge of organizing the entire thing.

Weddings are supposed to be a beautiful thing to come together as a family, and it’s important to have wedding planners and consultants on board to help you. Weddings are a personal and joyous occasion and the better you plan, the better chance you have of the day going off with the right hitch, not without one!
