Every young girl dreams about that special day that they tie their futures to their beloved partners’. Weddings are the things of fairytales, and everything about them should exude that mystical whimsy. And every bride-to-be has that fantasy moment, right before the “I do” and ceremonial smooch, rehearsed in their head.
But how exactly do you get from picking out cake flavors to that very special moment? There’s a lot to plan for in between. Read on to find out how to plan the perfect wedding — it’s not a big commitment.
Don’t Wait, Get Reserved
Before going any further, make sure that you have your venue reserved. These places are a hot commodity, and they get booked up obscenely fast. If you and your partner are serious about getting married, book your reservation as soon as possible.
Some of the wait times exceed 9-15 months!
Pick a Theme
Every cohesive wedding has a theme. It’s the color scheme that everyone will be wearing. It’s also the decor and food choices.
Find a color that meshes well between you and your spouse-to-be. But do it gracefully; vibrant colors can be tacky and gaudy.
Pick a setting for your day, too. The decor should complement the couple’s interests. Make sure to have suitable theme arrangements for the flowers, cutlery, backdrop, as well as the table and chair covers.
Try on All the Dresses
This is the most important dress you’ll ever wear. It’s the perfect dress to end them all.
Choosing which one is right for you is a lot of trial and error. Get a group of honest best friends and do some time in the dress shop. It could take weeks or even months before finding the wedding regalia.
Be sure to hire a notable wedding stylist. A dress is nothing without the right makeup and ‘do.
Find Finger Foods
Picking the catering is sometimes the best part. Everybody loves eating.
Your wedding is the one day you’re allowed to splurge and go all out. Get the very best food that you love. And order a lot of it.
Make the Perfect Wedding Guest List
Wedding crashers need not apply.
Devising the guest list should take some time. Include the people that you want to see on your big day, but prepare yourself for nasty interactions from those you denied. Don’t invite or not invite people because of past altercations.
Say the Magic Words
The big day will eventually arrive. And you’ll find yourself behind that alter. Get ready for your entire future to change.
Make sure to make it memorable by preparing heartfelt vows. They should be touching and truthful to your partner.
‘Til Death Do Us Part
Weddings are one of the biggest days of our lives. We’ve all been dreaming of it since we were young. But, a lot of planning goes into the perfect wedding.
You should hurry and book your venue. Then, you should pick a theme, get a dress, and create the menu. From there, devise the guest list and your eternal vows.
