He knelt on one knee, you have the ring, and everything you ever dreamed of as a little girl has now come to life. Now, you have to plan your dream wedding. A wedding symbolizes the union of two people who have deep love and connection with each other.
The task of putting together your ideal wedding can be fun, but also it can be very overwhelming, from the theme of the wedding to the food that is going to be served for your guests. Both you and your future husband plan ahead of what you want for your wedding day because no bride would like something to ruin their wedding.
Here is a Breakdown of What You Need To Have the A Memorable Wedding Day:
Set a Budget
Your wedding budget will be a determining factor in many of your wedding-related decisions, so it should be the first thing you address when planning your wedding. If you have any family members contributing, talk to them about how much they are comfortable spending on the project. If you and your future husband are the ones who are footing the bill, it’s time to take a hard look at your financial situation.
You don’t have to invite everyone you know. If you have set a budget, stick to it.
Make a list of close family members, attendants, and their partners, after which the bride and groom should each make a list of friends, attempting to keep the lists equal in length.
A collaborative list of mutual friends should be created after that. Each parent’s wish list should include family members as well as their friends and colleagues. Parents on both sides should contribute their wish lists. As many as four sets of parents could be required to accommodate children if any parents are divorced and remarried.
Just remember that it is still your wedding, and you can cut people you haven’t talked to in the last five years or family members you’ve had a falling out with.
It is up to both of you whether you want to hire a wedding planner or not. If your budget allows you to hire a wedding planner, make use of it.
Your wedding planner will serve as your right hand and assist you in making all decisions, from selecting a venue to keeping track of your budget and managing all of the details.
Nothing is more challenging than choosing a theme, whether you like a garden-themed wedding or you want a rustic-themed wedding. Some couples even have the most outrageous theme ideas like The Walking Dead inspired wedding.
There are many different ways to fuse a theme into a wedding. It could be specific wedding colors, seasonal or style inspiration, or even a specific theme (such as a 70s themed wedding or a goth themed wedding). Once you’ve decided on an aesthetic, it’s much easier to make design decisions, and everything appears to flow together more naturally as a result.
Groomsmen and Bridesmaids
The friends and family members you invite to be a part of your wedding party will provide emotional and logistical support throughout the wedding planning process and on the wedding day itself. Determine the best size wedding party for you and your partner by talking about it with them. Keep in mind the expenses that come with this particular responsibility when deciding on the size of your wedding party.
Always have more options when choosing a venue for your wedding because you’ll never know if they’re booked on the day you want to get married or not. So it is best to have options. Also, make sure that the venue you have chosen is within your budget.
Don’t be stressed if you’re feeling so much pressure to find the perfect wedding dress of your dreams that you’re beginning to believe you’re going insane.
First things first, know what type of dress works for your wedding venue. If you live in the colder areas and know it’s going to be cold, you might want to opt for a form-fitting wedding dress with long sleeves. If you live in a warmer and humid area, opt for a trumpet silhouette dress that you know won’t make you sweat a lot.
The search for a bride’s ideal wedding dress can be frustrating and complicated. Women have so many options when it comes to silhouettes, styles, shapes, and other factors, such as time and season. Arriving at your bridal appointment with an idea of what you want in mind is always a good idea, but don’t be afraid to try on a variety of different styles as well.
Have Fun on Your Wedding Day
Don’t stress out on your wedding day. It’s inevitable if a problem occurs but focus on you and your husband to be. It is your day to make memories! Whether it is a simple wedding or an extravagant one, always remember that it is about the both of you making memories and moving on to a new chapter in your lives.
