Don’t Leave These Things To The Last Minute When Planning Your Wedding
Congratulations on your engagement!
Getting married will undoubtedly be one of the most memorable days of your life thus far. Nonetheless, the real work begins right now, and you will need to get your notepad and pen ready to begin the process of planning, preparing, and making arrangements. In the weeks leading up to your wedding, you will almost certainly have some last-minute items to check off your list and cross them off as you go. You will, however, need to ensure that certain crucial aspects of your wedding are planned and set in stone from the beginning – and this includes more than just the bride’s dress and the groom’s attire!
Getting as much organised as possible can assist to reduce any stresses and jitters you may be experiencing in the run-up to your wedding; therefore have a look at the following items and start making lists.
Where are you getting married and when?
The location where your wedding will take place is essential if you plan on getting married. Depending on the type of venue you are considering, you may need to book many months, or even a year or two, in advance. You should start thinking about wedding and reception venues as soon as possible after deciding on a date. In order to have your wedding outside, such as on the beach or in a park, you must first obtain the necessary permits, which may take some time to be authorised.
How are you going to get to and from the venues?
Make sure you do not forget about transportation to and from your wedding locations during the planning phase. Generally speaking, the earlier you book (not to mention the better the transportation), the better the deal you will get. So think about the type of transportation you want and begin shopping around as soon as possible.
When choosing a mode of transportation, keep the weather conditions in mind. Certainly, it is wonderful that you can get such a terrific price on horse-drawn carriages in April, but what happens if it starts to rain? Another option to consider is personal limousine hire. You will certainly arrive in style that way!
How many guests are you going to invite – and who are you including on the guest list?
The sooner you and your future wife or husband can finalise your guest list, the better off you will be. Your choice of venue, as well as the additional expenditures of food, beverages, and any entertainment, will be determined by how many people will be attending your wedding. In order to avoid overspending, evaluate your budget first, and then decide on a set amount of people you feel comfortable inviting. Choosing who to leave off your guest list can be difficult, but keep in mind that you are not trying to insult anyone; weddings are expensive, and people will understand your reasoning, so be courageous when deciding who to invite to your wedding celebration.
