Planning a wedding can be one of the most exciting times of your life. The attention to detail required to make your big day absolutely perfect can require months and months of planning and a lot of dedication to detail to make sure everything is just right.
In many cases, both the couple will know exactly how they want their big day to look. For others, it can be a case of trial and error to commit to a suitable theme for both parties fully. But how do you design a wedding if you don’t know what you want?
Stay True to Yourself
The first thing to remember is that a wedding is about the couple getting married. Everyone is simply background noise. Planning a wedding because it is what other people will like could end up ruining your big day. Instead, block out the noise and look at the details that will make you happy. The colors you will like, and the specifics that mean something to you aren’t just pleasing other people.
Your Maximum Budget
Elaborate plans, ice sculptures, 5 their wedding cakes, and even the dream wedding attire can all add up. While it is nice to have a dream wedding in mind, being realistic about what your budget will stretch to will allow you to plan a wedding that sticks to what you can afford and eliminate any worry about how you will pay for things or going into debt for your wedding.
Allocate your budget to the items you definitely need to spend more on and look at how you can still have everything you want with what is left.
You may not be able to have everything you exactly want and how you want it. Accept this and the reasons why before you start wedding planning can help you adapt to any changes from your plan and be accommodating to new ideas and suggestions. Compromise is always going to happen – it could be the date you want to get married is fully booked in the location you desire, certain suppliers have no availability that week, or your budget will only stretch so far.
Make a list of the details you are happy to compromise on and details you absolutely have to give you a starting point as to what you will be able to compromise on if you need to.
What Is Important to You
As we mentioned, this is your wedding, your way, from choosing decorations from Just Artifacts, the location, dress code, food options, and more. Decide on what qualities of a wedding are important to you and what you can leave out. Do you need to include any religious or family traditions, and how will you incorporate them into your day? When planning your wedding day, make sure to leave time to add in everything you need to to avoid overcommitting and being short on time to include everything and enjoy your day fully.
Lastly, relax. Your wedding day needs you to be fully relaxed, and at the moment, so you get to enjoy the fruits of your labor of love over the past few months.
