Your boyfriend popped the question, you finally said yes and now is the time to start thinking about your wedding preparations. Organising your wedding can be long and complicated but if you start preparing everything on time it can go smoothly, without stress or at least with minimum stress. :-)
1.) SETTING THE DATE
The minute you get engaged everyone will be asking for your wedding date. Whether the wedding is in a year or in three months it makes no difference. What’s important is that all the people you care about are notified on time.
2.) CHOOSING LOCATION
Once the date is set, booking some venues could come out as mission impossible, especially popular ones (terraces on the open, attractive spaces..) which are booked months or even years ahead. So, to start planning on time will increase your chances getting the location you wish for. Also, if chosen venue doesn’t offer catering it’s another matter you need to consider and incorporate into early preparation phase.
3.) BOOKING A DJ, BAND OR MUSICIAN
The same as with location you can expect that most popular musicians and performers are booked months in advance. Maybe you’ll need to reschedule your wedding date if your favourite band (or place for that matter) isn’t available for the planned one. In any case, whether you’ll have a live band or a DJ, music will be the focal point of your entertainment.
4.) HIRING A WEDDING COORDINATOR OR WEDDING PLANNER
Makes your life prior to the wedding easier and you’re free to enjoy your wedding day! Or ask your close friends for support to make decision-making easier. With all the details you need to think about, budgets to manage, planning a perfect wedding is no easy feat so it’s crucial that you start on time. And if time is the luxury you can’t afford leave it to the experts who’ll make your wishes a reality.
5.) CHOOSING A PHOTOGRAPHER
Last but not least, don’t forget the person who will capture those magical moments in the best possible way. After all the euphoria passes and wedding comes to an end you’ll cherish those images forever and you’ll look back at them years from now with pleasure. Choosing a photographer who matches your style, aesthetics and budget is extra important so finding a person who will understand your vision of your wedding is a key factor of having a successful wedding.
A job well planned is a job well done so these steps will make further planning easier. When the big day comes having a carefully chosen professionals by your side will take the pressure off and you’ll be able to have carefree, fun and special wedding.
