When you got engaged, I bet you were more than ready to say, “Yes.” That was the easy part. Now you need to get ready for your wedding. There are a million details associated with a wedding – enough to overwhelm even the most serene bride. Here are some tips on how to get ready…
First of all, the best way to handle all the details is to create a wedding checklist and place it within a timeline so that you can be sure not to miss anything vital. Plus, if you can, you want to start planning at least a year in advance so that you have plenty of time; and if you have chosen a popular wedding date, be sure to give yourself even more wiggle room. It’s also a great idea to start a folder including magazine clippings of any ideas you would like to replicate.
Next, you will need to determine a budget so that you know your boundaries. Then, choose your date and reserve your venue of choice because some wedding venues will book-up well in advance. You’ll need to select your wedding party; create a guest list; book your officiant, your florist, bakery, music, photographer and videographer. Sound like a lot? It is, but there’s more.
You need to choose your wedding dress, bridesmaid gowns and tuxes. They all have to be coordinated with your flowers and decorations. Then there are dress fittings, a wedding registry to create, cakes to taste, a honeymoon to plan, vow decisions, invitations to choose, print and mail on time and a rehearsal dinner to plan. There are seats to assign, a menu to finalize, rooms to book for out-of-town guests, gifts for your wedding party and so much more.
And if this all seems too overwhelming, you can just make one very important call – to Affordable Beach Wedding for reliable wedding assistance. In the meantime, feel free to peruse our wedding packages on our website for some great ideas. Ready, set, go!
