Invitations to Decorations: How to Plan a Harmonious Wedding
Planning your wedding day can seem like a dream come true. However, once you get started, it can suddenly become very overwhelming. To ensure that you stay on track and that your wedding turns flows harmoniously, you should employ these four tips in your wedding planning process.
Set Your Budget
Before you even start talking with DJs or tasting cake, you should take some time to discuss your budget with your partner. See what amount you’re both comfortable spending on the wedding.
Be sure to take your budget and divvy it up between different types of expenses. These include areas like music, dresses and suits, food, photography, and decorations.
This will give you a good starting point so you know what price range you’ll be looking for when it comes to planning all these smaller components of your wedding.
Accept Your Partner’s Preferences
While you love your significant other, there are some suggestions that you may want to forget you heard them say. However, it’s important to ensure that your wedding incorporates both of your unique qualities.
If your partner wants to include a funny picture with your wedding invitations, then do so. If they want to breakdance as your first entrance, go for it.
While you shouldn’t go along with anything that makes either of you truly uncomfortable, remember that your wedding is about you and your partner. Don’t try to mold your wedding into the traditional structure if it doesn’t fit.
Divvy Up Tasks
Maybe you love tasting food, but you’re not so much into decorating. You can make wedding planning a breeze by simply divvying up tasks between you and your partner.
The things that you both enjoy doing, do together. If there are things they love but you don’t, simply let them handle it. If there are things you love and they don’t, then you take over.
Not only does this make the wedding planning easier and more enjoyable, but it will also prepare you for working together as a married couple.
Get Your Guest List Done Early
As you start to dive into wedding planning, you’ll come to find out that you really need to have the number of guests decided to pick out most things. For example, you need to know how many guests you’re inviting so you can plan for food, seating, gifts, and so forth.
Sit down with your partner and decide on your guest list. Keep it within reason for your budget. While you may want to invite everybody you know, paying to feed 200 people can get really expensive. Keep your guest list reasonable to your wedding budget. With your partner, decide on the guests the two of you have to invite and go from there.
Planning a harmonious wedding starts with figuring out the big decisions. When you utilize the tips above to make a plan for these big decisions, it will give you a good footing to start out with. You’ll notice that tasks suddenly become less stressful and more fun for both of you.
