A wedding is a special day for many people. The bride the groom and of course the families. Every couple wants their wedding day to be perfect because well we only do it once (normally) in our lives. But to make your special day go smoothly without any mess ups, you need to organize it well. You must ensure everything including the decor, clothes, caterers, venue and everything is in place.
If you want to have a beautiful wedding with all the bells and whistles, you need to start planning well in advance. Start at least six months ahead. Sometimes you may have to start even before depending on the size of the function and the availability of the venues. Many popular wedding locations get booked years in advance and if you plan on getting married during a peak season like June you need to start soon.
Even though this is your special day and you want to splurge a little, do not forget to set a budget. There is life after your wedding too, so it is wise to set aside an amount. Writing down even aspect and allocating a budget to it will help you keep track of expenses.
You must decide on the decorations early too. You may already have something in mind, so speak with the florist or planner and tell them what you have in mind, They will be able to bring your idea to life if you give them enough time to prepare.
Music, photography, and videography
If you want to have a DJ or band playing you should book them early. Most weddings will have a photographer and video filing expert too. Make sure you discuss your requirements with these parties so that there will be no last minute running around or misunderstandings. After all, video and photos are what help you relive the memories of your special day.
Food & Drink
Depending on the type of wedding you are having, you will have to order food. For example, Eastern style weddings will require food that matches that culture, but caterers can always have some western food available if you give them the right instructions in advance. Make sure you order more food than the number of guests as it is normally the case that you may have a few extra people showing up.
