You’ve finally met your lifetime partner, and decided to spend a life together.
Planning this wonderful day means there are several wedding planning considerations that you have to go through.
You will be asking a lot of questions– from the wedding gown, to the meals to serve, to the music to play, and everything else in between. Don’t worry, we’re here to help, here are some of the most common wedding planning considerations for you to know:
How Much Is Your Budget?
It’s important to figure out how much you have to spend depending on your savings, your partner’s savings, and family contribution.
The Guest List
Come up with a headcount database that you can use all throughout the planning process. This should have columns for the contact details, gifts, RSVPs, and other important information that you might need. If you’re on a tight budget, it’s highly recommended to limit your guest invites.
Hire a Planner
The good thing about a wedding planner is that they have relationships with- and insight about– vendors, making the wedding preparation a little bit easier.
Reserve Your Date and Venue
You have to determine if you’re going to have two different locations for the ceremony and reception. Likewise, try to factor in the travel time between these places.
Hiring the Photographer
There’s no need to talk about the specifics yet, but it’s important to ensure that the people you’re going to hire is capable of doing the shots you really want.
Book the Entertainment
Are you planning to hire a DJ? You should also attend gigs of those who want to hire, and see how they perform in front of the crowd.
Buy a Dress
You’ll have to schedule time for this, and at least three fittings to ensure that the wedding dress would fit perfectly.
Shop for the Bridesmaids’ dresses
This should be done six months before the actual wedding for you to have it ordered and sized.
Book a Cosmetologist, A Makeup Artist or Hair Stylist!
Plan the Honeymoon
Don’t forget to ensure that your passports are up to date and scheduling doctor’s appointments is also ideal, because you probably need some shots before going out of the country.
Book a Florist
A lot of florists serve several clients on a day, and you should see to it that the one you’re going to hire has the talent to create the bouquets and arrangements you want for your wedding.
Purchase the Rings
A wedding wouldn’t be complete without the wedding ring, and so, you should really include this in your plan and do this a couple of months before the wedding, to have enough time if it needs to be resized.
There you have it. These are just of the wedding planning considerations that you should be familiar of in order to guarantee that your wedding would be memorable and stress free.
