Planning your wedding can be exciting, but also overwhelming and stressful for some couples- or should I say
“bride to be.” There are so many details, big and small, that goes into planning a wedding. From choosing
your bridal party, making a wedding list, picking out the ideal invitation
, shopping for the perfect wedding
dress and bridesmaid dresses to choosing the wedding ceremony, reception venue, and vendors. Just to
name a few.
The key is staying organized in order to keep your sanity and of those around you. Nevertheless, do not worry;
here are a few tips on how to plan a wedding with less stress.Set and Stay Within Budget:
Before you begin spending money, set a budget! If you and your fiancé are financing the wedding, bear in
mind that parents and grandparents will most likely want to help. If the parents are financing the wedding,
consult them on the budget and be open to compromising.
Next, decide the number of guests you will invite and how formal or informal the wedding will be- the more
formal, the more expensive.
Therefore, set a realistic budget and stay within it. As you spend, keep a record of it, so you will not go over.A Wedding Checklist:
A wedding checklist
is one of the most important tools you can utilize. It is a list of tasks that need to be
completed and things to consider for your wedding that you check off as you go. This will assist you in staying
organized, within budget, and help you determine what has been done and what is left. Keep the checklist
and all of your receipts, paperwork, and contacts in a folder or a binder for easy access.Ask For Help:
Do not hesitate to ask for assistance from your fiancé, your wedding party, and family. Each member of your
wedding party has his/her own duties and responsibilities. Delegate, but don’t be difficult- be open to other
people’s opinion. Although, you and your fiancé will be the ones to have the final say.Seek Out Different Resources:
Attend bridal shows in your area. This will help you meet local vendors, see different venue options, enter-to-
win shopping sprees, honeymoons, enjoy formal fashion shows, try samples and receive free gifts.Wedding Planners-
Think about hiring a wedding planner. They are there to answer all your questions, and make your vision come
to life. They will guide and help you every step of the way- from beginning to end, if you’d like, or you can hire
them for your wedding day to make sure everything goes as planned.Wedding Sites-
You can find many useful information, pictures, and articles on the web. You can also purchase your wedding favors, wedding invitations, gifts,
and all your wedding needs online.
If you take the time to do your research, you can save a lot of money, which you can spend towards your
honeymoon or new home.
In conclusion, if you stay organized, within budget, ask for a little help, and seek out different resources- it will
