Once the excitement has settled down and you’ve told all your friends, the reality of what lies ahead after your engagement, starts to register pretty quick. You are going to need to get planning and pronto, there are some huge decisions to be made!
Not everyone wants to rush into the wedding but for some it can’t come quick enough. Whatever decision you make planning is vital to make your big day the best it can be. Planning will also help you to reduce costs and be prepared for any issues.
1. First things first,
you had an engagement party right? We hope so, big or small it can be a great place to start with plans. Everyone wants to know when the big day is and if you know what kind of dress you will wear, so it can be a great way of finding out what you really want!
2. Start by talking about a date so you can get some save the date cards out in the post.
This is a really exciting first decision to make because it gets the countdown clock ticking. Once you have decided on which season to get married in or chosen a meaningful day, you need to work out three wedding venues you like. Check the venues have your dates free as some can be booked up for years! Then don’t delay. Get the date in the diary and start telling your friends when it’s happening!
3. Choosing your wedding bands
will should be another high priority task. You will be wearing these for the rest of your life. Check out websites like www.diamondsforless.ca/
4. Catering is the next big danger zone.
Once you have your venues booked you need to get a cater sorted quick smart. It can be hard deciding what food you want or if you are having a buffet later in the evening. When should the food be served and do you want canapes during the speeches. Talk to your caterer and get their advice and opinions then tell them your ideas and make them work.
5. You may want a theme to your wedding,
this is the time to start the process. If you aren’t naturally creative, hiring a wedding planner may help to bring your dreams to life. Talk to your married friends and see if they have any good recommendations. It’s good to use someone who you know.
6. The vows are deeply meaningful
and whilst many opt for tradition it is becoming fashionable to write your own vows and really take the opportunity to tell your partner what they mean to you and how you are going to treat this forever bond. You can write them together or in secret.
make sure your family don’t try to influence the day. If you want to make special changes to ensure certain members of your circle are happy, then do. But remember this is your big day and no one should be making it hard for you. As long as you and your husband to be are happy, all of your guests should be happy.
