5 Tips to Make Your Dream Wedding Successful
A dream wedding can take years to plan, or; it can be planned and executed in just a few months! This part of the process is very much controlled by how quickly you wish to tie the knot. The availability of funds can also play an important part in any wedding preparation. Fortunately, there are many ways in which you can prepare for a wedding at short notice, or with limited funds and still have the wedding you have always dreamed of. The following tips will make sure you have a day to remember:
- The Dress
The first thing many brides do is rush to a wedding shop to find the right dress and look at having it altered or made to their exact specifications. However, it doesn’t matter if you have your heart set on a designer dress or one off the shelf; it is still possible to acquire the dress you desire cheaply and quickly. All wedding shops need to sell off their old stock to make way for new ranges. It is possible to pick up designer dresses at a fraction of the usual price!
Alternatively, it is possible to pick up a secondhand, worn once dress on the internet. Bridesmaid dresses do not need to come to a wedding shop. Beautiful dresses for any occasion can be picked from any department store.
- Get your priorities straight
It is essential to narrow down the most important elements of your wedding. Attempting to focus on everything will be a recipe for disaster. Work out which three parts of the wedding are most important to you and focus your time and effort on these. This should be a joint decision with your partner. If you are both agreed on the most important parts of the wedding and you get those bits sorted the day will be unforgettable for all the right reasons.
- The venue
Venues get booked up very early. Even if you are planning a wedding for two or three years down the line you need to book your venue straight away. If you are limited on time then you may need to check for anywhere that has a last-minute cancellation or to think of places that are not usually considered. There are many beautiful buildings around which are now used for a variety of commercial endeavors but may still be amicable to your use of the building.
- Beg and borrow
No matter what the time scale there will be items that you struggle to get hold of, either because they are rare or because they are too expensive for your budget. These items can be obtained by borrowing them in exchange for something you have or a service you can offer. Alternatively simply pleading for your important day may be enough to secure their loan; this will depend on the item and the relationship of the owner to you. Locating and acquiring the bits you want will be an excellent test of your negotiation skills!
- Use technology
There are hundreds of different apps available online which will help with your wedding planning lists, tasks to do, and those completed. This sort of assistance will be invaluable when organizing all the items which need to be completed prior to your big day. Planning apps will save you time while online auction houses can save you money and help you to locate the item that you need. They can even be a good place to look for inspiration, particularly regarding centerpieces or the cake.
Technology can also be used to see which deals are currently available and whether they are of any use to you. Finally, checking the credentials, reviews, and reputation of businesses online will save you time when locating your caterers and other wedding-related businesses. You will know which ones are worth dealing with.
No matter how much planning you do, it is essential to remember that this is your day, it is your happiness that counts above all else. As long as you and your partner are happy there is no wrong decision. Just enjoy the wedding and don’t stress out over the little things that didn’t work out!
