Planning a wedding can feel pretty overwhelming at first, but there is always the other side associated behind the scenes. It just takes a bit of organization to keep everything on track when you’re faced with endless decisions, lists, deadlines and vendors.
Follow these 4 tips on how to manage your wedding plans while keeping your cool.
Set your Budget
Let’s talk budgets. Set your budget, and once you’ve got the magic number, stick to it! With the budget in place, it’s time to start getting inspired and delving into the nitty-gritty details! Prioritize what is most important to both of you and assign parts of your budget accordingly. Figure out the four most important aspects. Is it the venue? The gown and costume? The Photographer? The Dj?
With so many sources of inspiration out there, you will find the type of style you like. Whether it’s Pinterest, Instagram, blogs, etc. start searching. Define what kind of wedding did you have in mind? Indoor or outdoor? Traditional, romantic, vintage or quirky? Get a good sense of what you like and translate that into something you can show your vendors.
Work as a team with your fiancé
Good organization and communication is the key when planning your own wedding. Turn to your beloved one for help along the way and even make wedding planning something fun you do together. You can share checklists, spreadsheets, Google Drive- anything, really- as long as you have all your thoughts, budgets, numbers, etc. in one place.
Don’t Rush Into Decisions
It may be enticing to book the photographer or decide on your wedding dress designer, but take a step back and weigh all your options before any quick decisions. Amazing memories are the most valuable of things. Make sure you are comfortable and you have made the right choice when selecting your photographer. It is unlikely you will get a second chance to capture those moments.
