The day of your wedding is one of the most special days of your life. As a result, you should definitely take the time to properly plan your wedding down to every detail. This is certainly a painstaking process, however, it is well worth it since every detail will help create beautiful memories that you’ll cherish forever. In this post, we’ll look at a few wedding planning tips and guidelines that can help just about anyone to plan a lovely wedding.
Our first tip is that you should determine what theme wedding you want to have. This is something that the couple should talk about at length and it should be a theme that they both agree on or a combination of both their ideas. For example, if the bride wants a traditional classic wedding but the groom wants a more modern wedding, then it is actually possible to combine these two styles. This can be done through having certain traditional elements such as the traditional wedding dress and wedding favors and a modern flair can be added through a unique and modern venue. This is just an example so that you know your wedding doesn’t just have to have one specific theme.
Next, once the theme has been determined, choosing and booking the venue should be next on the list. Depending on where you live, there could be as few as a handful of venues or tens and hundreds of possible venues. The more venues there are, the more possibilities there will be. If you want to host your wedding in a unique space, then you should consider looking for venues that most people don’t know about. There are many ways that you can find these hidden gems and one way is to hire a good wedding planner.
A good wedding planner will not only be able to find you the exact venue that you want, but also book it and help advise you on every single task that needs to be done when planning a wedding. They can even do everything themselves which is a great option for couples that are very busy or would just prefer to have someone else make all the calls and do the running around. However, even though you may choose to hire a wedding planner, you should always look at, review and then sign off on the most important aspects. These include the menu, cake, decorations, music, DJ, photographers etc.
Lastly, in addition to planning the perfect wedding, you need to also hire an excellent photographer and videographer. What is the point of going all out on your wedding and spending so much money and you don’t have any good records of it. You should not just rely on amateur photos and videos from your family members since these won’t be of good quality. Instead, depending on the size of wedding, you should hire a photographer or team of photographers that specialize in wedding photography and video.
