Nothing! And yes, you are more excited that you are going to make your dream come true in just a few weeks. So, what else you need to do than to start preparing your own wedding!
To make your wedding successful and memorable, you need to create a wedding plan. That is the basis of how you can organize your wedding with so much ease and less hassle. You need to have a good plan prior to your wedding as this will make each of your tasks easier and well organized. Preparing your own wedding is no doubt stressful but once it is done, you can totally say that it’s really worth it, challenging but very fun. This means that you can make your dream wedding come true if you plan it in advance.
Have a Meeting
The first thing that you and your partner must do is to sit down and talk everything that you need to do for your wedding. This has to be planned and executed out so a meeting is necessary. It is a pre-requisite to talk things out. This meeting is somewhat casual but has a serious and formal mood. Well, you can agree with me now that a wedding is something you cannot just take for granted. Anyway, this meeting must be open to those who are involved and concerned. You need the presence of your maid of honor, the best man, and probably the bridesmaids and groomsmen too. If you have a professional wedding planner, she is badly needed. Sometimes, the parents and siblings join to depending on their availability.
Assign People in Charge
Planning a wedding requires teamwork so the reason why you’re having a meeting is to let everybody knows their special roles. Each of them has responsibilities to make and the couple doesn’t have to work alone. It is easy to accomplish things when a group of people work together. It’s one reason why you have a maid of honor and best man in the first place. Let them be the leaders. For instance, the maid of honor can get help from the bridesmaids in ordering flowers, making bouquets and creating wedding invitations. The best man and the groomsmen can make bookings of the transportation, videographers and photographers. As you can see, everything that has to be taken care of is easy, fast and more flexible to complete with the help of those people.
Create Your Theme
Before you can go into further details, come up with a theme first. This is the basis of what color your bridesmaids and groomsmen attire would be, what kind of decorations to set, what flowers to arrange, etc. The theme is practically chosen by the groom and the bride. It is a personal thing that you both can only decide for it. Yet, it does not mean that you close some suggestions and ideas your family and friends may recommend. You may probably need hints from them after all especially when deciding a color scheme.
List All Things Covered in the Wedding
When you prepare a wedding, it is actually the process of identifying what to use, buy and do. The wedding plan refers to a list of the things you need to cover to make the wedding happen. You have to list down the following: wedding dresses, accessories and shoes, invitations, bouquets and flowers, decorations, foods, the wedding cake, transportation, videos and photography, music, lightings. The most important of all is to choose the day and time of your wedding. This enables you to make a timeline once you have set the date of your special celebration.
Get Consultation from an Expert
Traditionally, it is common for engaged couples to hire a wedding planner. It is the primary job of every wedding planner to organize the wedding of somebody. They are paid before or later, but, this only indicates extra budget to your wedding expenses. For others, it is much cheaper to just get tips and consultation from specialists. Actually, this is also a good idea to make your wedding successful. You can ask questions and ideas that you may consider when you you’re your own wedding. Anyone who is expert in this regard can give you some nice recommendations and help you minimize your budget. If you want a full time assistance, hiring a wedding organizer or planner is the answer to this. Yet, you must have extra cash to pay for her or him because the services offered are given from the first day of preparing your wedding up to the end of the celebration.
Obtain Ideas from Various Sources
