If you are a couple that has recently been engaged, it’s likely that you have already started planning your wedding! In most cases, the woman is more excited and energized when the wedding planning starts as compared to the man. With so much to plan and take care of, it can be difficult to determine where to start or what to do next!
To offer you some help, we have made a list of the five things to do in order to achieve your dream wedding!
1. Engagement and Celebrations
The post-engagement period is a special time for any couple. Therefore, it is important to celebrate these moments before jumping into wedding preparations. If a family member or a close friend wants to host an engagement party, seize the moment and let them do so! Enjoy this time before you get tangled up in the wedding decisions.
2. Make A Decision – What Kind of Wedding Do You Want?
Before starting the preparations, it is important to sit down and talk to your fiancé about what kind of wedding you both want. When couples skip this step, it becomes hard to achieve the wedding they have always dreamed of having, which eventually leads to regret. That is why couples should not underestimate this step.
Married couples, especially brides, often regret how they did not have the wedding of their dreams. Why does this happen? These couples skip this step and jump to the big things, forgetting what kind of wedding they were opting for. By having a set theme, the shopping becomes easier because this way, the couple will only be purchasing the items that are necessary.
3. What is the Budget?
Wedding budgets are not intimidating unless you make them. If the couple wants to achieve their dream wedding under a budget, it is important to decide a realistic figure for it as there will be guests, décor, the photographer, dresses, and much more.
Will anyone be funding your wedding? Couples, who want to be in charge of their wedding plans, need to know that once parents start contributing to the wedding, they start dictating what should happen.
4. Choose a Venue
After setting a date for the wedding, it is important to search for the best venue. Research as many venues as you can in this limited time to find the perfect setting where you want to get married. Will the wedding take place in a garden, near a waterfall, in a church or in a banquet hall? There are endless possibilities; therefore, it is important to choose the right venue as soon as possible.
5. Wedding Planners Are Helpful
Wedding planning can be stressful as there are so many different ideas and opinions. This can prolong the planning process. That is why asking wedding planners for help is smart as they make sure everything goes according to your vision.
Now that you are aware of what to keep in mind, you will be able to achieve your dream wedding. Keep in mind, the more you stress, the harder the process will become.
