Planning a wedding is never as stress-free and painless as some imagine. Don’t we always under estimate the amount of time and energy it takes to pull anything together let alone a wedding? All things being equal when planning anything and everything the blood, sweat and tears it takes really does depend on the size and scope of the occasion on tap.
So congratulations you got engaged! First step, set the date and then the fun begins. Planning a wedding, your most perfect day can be everything under the sun; exciting, nerve-racking, fun, stressful to name only a few. And whether you do all the planning or rely on a wedding planner, this day is all about incorporating what is important to that special couple.
One, Two, Three, Tips to Get Started Planning a Wedding
I am often asked for advice or tips when it comes to events, meetings and wedding planning. And I ‘m okay with that, I don’t even mind helping out. But when it comes to planning a wedding I have three tips to help get a bride started.
It’s YOUR Day – The most important advice I give brides (and grooms too) is to remember this is your special day. And be sure to make it just that. Don’t let anyone tell you anything different or change your mind and plans. Ensure you put your flair and style into everything. It’s your wedding, your money and what you have worked so hard to create so remember it’s your day.
Use a Wedding Checklist – Some say planning a wedding is all about being organized. Using a checklist will ensure that you include everything you need and want and in a timely fashion. A checklist will help create a budget and determine what is affordable and what isn’t. And we all know wedding planning can be super challenging and stressful, so any tool that we can use to make all our dreams a reality is welcomed.
Start NOW – The wedding day arrives sooner than then you’d think. You figure you have all the time in the world but really the right timing and great planning is the key to a happy day. But the truth is the more time you have to organize the better your event will be. Start your planning sooner rather than later to avoid huge costs and extra stress.
The wedding day is meant to be one of the most important days in the life of a couple. And each and every wedding scenario is unique and can be overwhelming. Don’t delay the planning because of a bit of fear. You know what “they” say “the journey is as exciting as the destination.” So jump in with both feet and remember; it’s your day, use whatever tools work for you and start planning…NOW!
