In life, experts say that you have to plan everything and keep surprises away, even if some of them could be really pleasant. We do not know if this is indeed the best way to go, but when it comes to a wedding, we definitely need to plan everything, and not let ourselves go with the flow.
We have to start with the budget. Again, experts say that one of the biggest mistakes that marrying couples make is not setting a wedding budget. They assume that they can spend less than $5000, and end up paying more than $8000 on their wedding, simply because they do not keep a register with all their incomes and expenses.
The next thing that has to be taken into consideration is the wedding date. Think about when is the best time to celebrate your wedding, but do not take into account only your own desires, but also your guests’ wishes. If you plan to celebrate your wedding in the summertime, when most people take their vacation, it is wise to announce them about your wedding more than 6 months before the event, for they to be able to be prepared for your wedding, and not book some tickets to Hawaii.
The elements that has to be dealt with next are: the wedding party (including the location), wedding ceremony (including the minister), the theme of the wedding, wedding invitations, rings, musicians, wedding vows, wardrobe, plus many other little details.
A wedding can be planned without the help of a wedding planner, but we have to admit that hiring a wedding planner eases a lot the process of organizing a wedding. So do not step back from using the services provided by a wedding planner, because in most cases it is cheaper that way. If you do not know what wedding vendors to choose, what flowers to select for your wedding ceremony, what fashion designer to collaborate with, you will end up losing precious time, and pay more money. This is why a wedding planner seems to be the right option in case of every wedding.
