As the wedding day approaches, many aspiring couples feel unsure of what will happen this is because they want the best for them and their visitors. Poor planning can leave them drained and this can translate into a wedding that does not look bright. On the other hand, the wish is always to have the brightest day ever and to create great memories that will hardly get rubbed off. In fact, all want to ever remember the day with nostalgia, that wish that it could last a decade. A big contributor to that effect lies in the planning.
To illustrate, we will take two opposite scenarios of couples planning their weddings. You may identify with the situation here: a couple feels that they want to be in control of the plans to their wedding. To effect that, they are part of the organizing committee and they propose how they want matters to run. After so doing, they follow on every step of implementation and let their ideas dominate. The committee members at some point feel that they would better leave the couple to handle their affairs their way. Time is going and by then, only a month is left. The result is obvious-they will be overwhelmed!
On the other hand, the couple delegates the duties such that in the committee, the members have a defined role; those in charge of the catering are to plan their department and deliver, free from interference. The next group is to deal with transport from the bridal procession to all the vehicles needed. The members in charge of the locations in which to take the photos have their deliberations too. All these work autonomously to achieve the great goal of success in the wedding day. How will they compare to the former couple?
There are steps to be followed in the planning of this big event. Although they may vary, once the time frame is determined, the plans are deliberated with relation to the timing and the cost. I will outline the general steps in this document.
- Define time. If the wedding will be ten months to come, plan the activities and distribute them along all the months. This reduces anxiety and the rush that comes with reduced time.
- A budget is a must! You must remember a wedding is like a construction project that takes a lot of money in the planning and consultation. Consulting a wedding planner is the first step. The type of wedding and how much that will cost must then be considered. As you identify locations and size of the bridal party and guest body to be invited, money matters must be carefully is put in perspective.
- Identify the items to go for. The wedding involves a lot of things. Fashion and design, color themes, locations and cars among others. Get the taste clear and decide what to go for.
- Put down the names of people to work with in the committee and consult to gauge their availability. This fixes the plans right from the word go! This keeps stress at bay and helps you relax. Please, never get tempted to interfere with the committee and how it runs affairs! They are many brains with good intentions. Just give ideas and keep the distance.
- Interact with the photographers and video guys and try out the quality of their work right in the engagement parties and try out the designers to get the best to do the clothes for the big day. You can then proceed with your daily job relieved and fully guaranteed that all is gong well. It will be a success!
- As the months go and the day approaches, more ideas shift to the new home, setting things up right for the guests who will be present, catering arrangements and deco to be done in the locations. Since all these were outlined, the final touches will leave the couple relaxed all left is to celebrate their union.
