It’s finally happening, it’s your turn to get married. But where do you start? This isn’t something you’ve probably done before, and organizing a wedding can seem like climbing a mountain. But never fear, here are some tips to help plan your wedding with ease.
Book A Venue Early
It’s important that when planning a wedding, you book your venue as early as possible. Venues, especially wedding venues can book up very quickly due to popularity. So unless you want to do the wedding within the year, try to book the venue two years from now. This also gives you a sensible amount of time to save up the money you need to pay for the wedding because it certainly isn’t cheap. Yes, two years may sound like a long time, but it soon comes around fast.
Set A Reasonable Budget
Having a budget is important for any big expense in life. You don’t want to overestimate or go beyond your means because no wedding is worth getting yourself into debt over. Set a reasonable budget that works for you and make sure you add a realistic figure to each and every item on your wedding list that you need to hire or buy. Whether you have a big or small wedding, it costs a lot of money, so make sure you start saving now!
Plan The Day Around You
As much as we can say that the day is about making sure your guests are happy, the day should be about the bride and groom. So, when it comes to planning your wedding, plan the day around you and your partner. Don’t worry so much about your guests when it comes to the little things as they’ll keep themselves occupied. So if you want to have a drive around in an old vintage car for half an hour then do so. This is your special day, and you’ll be spending enough of your own money on it, so do what makes you happy.
Ask The Venue For Suppliers
Getting suppliers for your venue can be one of the most stressful parts. After all, who do you go for and who can you trust? You’ve probably come across one or two horror stories where the cake hasn’t arrived, or the flower service you expected was not quite up to scratch. The venue that you pick will likely have a whole list of suppliers that they’ve vetted and used in the past for previous weddings. This is a great weight off your shoulders, and ease your minds that the suppliers you pick are going to be worth the money and they also know your wedding venue well.
Get Insurance For Your Wedding
And lastly, the most important thing is to get insurance for your wedding. Unfortunately, wedding insurance won’t cover cold feet, but it is worth getting, just in case a supplier doesn’t show, or a freak accident causes damage to your venue.
Remember to relax and enjoy the process of wedding planning. It doesn’t need to be stressful!
