Planning a wedding can feel pretty terrifying at the beginning (and especially so if you’re planning a wedding during a pandemic!). But whether you’re planning a traditional wedding or an extravagant, red-carpet affair, the basic steps always remain the same: find inspiration, set a budget, create your guest list and then start mailing invites! That’s it! The rest will take care of itself. There are some helpful wedding planning tips that will make things go much smoother if you follow them correctly.
The first thing any guide will tell you is to keep a “tight rein” on your spending. Weddings are expensive endeavours, and you’ll probably be working hard for months in advance to pay for everything from the location, reception venue and all of your special guests to the cost of your wedding dress and your wedding shoes. When planning a wedding day far in advance, it’s important to keep control of your own spending. Don’t be afraid to be flexible with your budget. You’ll also need to stay on top of your wedding date plans. Planning a wedding far in advance is a big step, but it’s essential to make sure you can accommodate all of your guests in accordance with their schedules.
Another important step in planning a wedding is choosing the right guide to suit both you and your partner. Some popular guides include “Wedding Magic” by Kate Wendleton and “The Perfect Wedding” by Gary Rhodes. If you’d like more specific advice and tips, these guides offer more detailed suggestions about each of the four main stages of planning a wedding, from deciding what music to have at your wedding to choosing the perfect honeymoon destination. And most importantly, don’t be afraid to experiment with the music, as this will set the mood for your wedding. Whether you choose classical music instruments, a modern band or a DJ, make sure that they are able to ply your favourite songs to avoid any disappointments on your wedding day.
