It’s not every day you’ll get the chance to marry your one true love. That’s why when it does, you’d want nothing else but to make it magical and extraordinary. Lucky for you, this is all possible. The challenge is, how you could stick with it and make it happen.
To help you plan this wonderful celebration, there are a few essentials things you need to keep in mind. To find out what those are, here’s a list you may refer to.
Should You or Should You Not DIY? Making a choice between DIY or hiring a wedding planner is an essential decision you have to make. Most of you often assume that DIY would cut down the cost of preparation and planning.
Unfortunately, that is not always the case. This is an advisable option, if and only if, you’ve made quite a connection on suppliers and vendors. But if you haven’t, you might need to do all the work on your own. For this one, it’s best to weigh the pros and cons of hiring a planner or doing the work yourself.
1. Have your own to-do checklist
To keep track of the progress of your preparation, it’s important to have your own checklist. This allows you to get all the details you need, right from the tiniest detail to the biggest one. Food, venue, equipment down to the arrangements, you have to see it for yourself.
Say your planner looks through wedding video packages, be sure you check the inclusions yourself. This is to find out whether this is what you’re looking for or what you need. Doing this will avoid mistakes as you go through the preparations.
2. Avoid last-minute preparations
Weddings are a special occasion, and this must be reflected in the celebration itself. If you think pulling off last-minute planning will work, sorry to break it to you but it isn’t. As compared with any other events, wedding planning involves a lot of things.
You can’t simply make a reservation in a jiffy. Aside from that, you’ll have to think about the schedule of your guests. This is not something you can rush, so you should start as early as possible.
3. Always keep your guests in mind
As special as the occasion is, you must never disregard the comfort of your guests. After all, they give life and more meaning to this very special event. That’s why you also have to think about their enjoyment, convenience, and presence.
There’s a reason you want them to become part of this special moment. So, might as well show them why. Does the venue of the celebration accessible for them? What is the food they would enjoy? How could you keep them entertained throughout the event? Have you though about your wedding giveaways?
These are just some of the few things you have to keep in mind when you’re making wedding preparations. During this time, couples are usually overwhelmed with their emotions. This is understandable, considering how special this event is.
But, make sure you keep everything in check. This is to ensure you’ll have the perfect and extraordinary experience as you both walk down the aisle.
