So you’ve gone from being a fiance to a bride-to-be. And, now you’ve got a wedding to plan. I suspect you will need some wedding planning advice. So let’s talk about the best approach to go about planning your wedding.
How smoothly your wedding goes depends on how you approach the wedding planning process in the first place. I have observed many brides jump into the process without giving to much thought exactly how to go about planning for the big day.
My goal is to help you avoid the many pitfalls that may come your way along the way. As you may know, planning a wedding comes with so many decision which can cause a couple to get overcome and feel overwhelmed. This is why it is so essential that you take the time to think through each thing you need to do to make your wedding planning journey as free from bumps in the road as possible. If your vision is strong and solid for your wedding day, the path will be smoother.
Envisioning your big day
Make sure to talk with your mate about how you each envision the day before investing too much time and energy into the planning. You want to be sure your partner is just as thrilled about the big day as you are. You also want to be sure to include your partner in the planning process. This is, after all, a very special day for you both. In this way, you will get to know where your points of view differ and were they come together. While your discussing the wedding together, discuss the what, who, how, when and wheres of the wedding day.
Who to invite?
Do you plan on inviting only those friends and family which you feel close to? Co-workers? Are you comfortable inviting people who you really don’t speak to regularly. You may want to avoid inviting people just to feel seats and to avoid having people who are there out of obligation and not because they truly want to be at the wedding. What about your parents? Will they be permitted to invite whomever they wish to attend?
What style wedding do you wish to have?
Are you dreaming of a more modern wedding and have in your sights a rooftop wedding with a city skyline view? Maybe you’re dreaming of a big church wedding? Maybe even the same place your parents were married? Perhaps re-living the time and place of a first date where you all walked the beach till sunset appeals to you. Just ensure that your wedding is a true reflection of you and your partner’s personal tastes.
Ask yourself when it is that you want to get married? What about getting married during a particular season or holiday? What about a significant date that has meaning for your relationship. You might consider selecting a date that is near your one year anniversary.
Where will the post-ceremony take place?
Location is vital when it comes to your wedding. You can have it at a hometown locale or a destination wedding. Whether the wedding is far or near, make your location decision based on that which will give you the least stress. Destination weddings can be appealing but keep in mind they can be difficult to control especially if you’re a hands on person.
How will you tell your special story?
Think about how you’d like for your guests to recall and experience your big day. Imagine that you are a guest and think about how you’d like to experience the wedding considering food, colors and other experiential things your guests will enjoy. It’s a great chance to have guests get to know who you, as a couple, are.
My best advice? Visualize and define early in the wedding planning process. This will give you a clear perspective while planning your wedding day. So, you will be protected from people with good intentions but who can cause you to veer away from your plan. Just be sure to stay true to yourself and your vision and that includes you and your partner’s vision. So, go ahead and do it your way!
