If your partner has recently proposed, now is the time to start planning your wedding. There are so many things to think about that it might become a little overwhelming. However, we are here to help. Just to make sure you don’t overlook anything important, we’ve published a list of all the basic considerations you’ll need to make. Of course, you will want to add to this list to personalize your wedding. There is no time to delay, so let’s get started.
Choosing the venue
The venue is one of the most important elements to your day. So, you need to choose it wisely. Do you want a church wedding? Would you prefer something less formal? Those are both questions you will need to answer before moving forward. Just don’t forget that you only have a certain amount of cash to spend, and so you don’t want to opt for anything too extravagant.
Buying the dress
When it comes to buying a suit for the groom, it doesn’t matter too much where you get it. However, the same cannot be said for the bride. It is her special day, and so she needs to look a million dollars. It’s a good idea to start looking for suitable dresses at least six months in advance. That is the only way to ensure adjustments can be made, and you can pay for it in installments. If you leave it too late, you might have to foot the entire bill in one go.
While you could handle all the entertainment yourself if this were a kids party, you need to book a band or DJ for your wedding. After a long day looking good, your guests will want to let their hair down and throw some shapes on the dance floor. You should look online at entertainment booking websites to find the best deals.
Arranging your transportation
Many people forget to arrange transportation to the wedding venue, and so you need to sort it out soon. Ideally, the bride should arrive in a classic car or limo. It might cost you a few hundred dollars to book a vehicle like that, but it will be worth the expense. You want the bride to arrive in style, and she is going to look pretty amazing when stepping out of a luxury automobile at the venue.
Think about your honeymoon
One of the best parts of getting married is that you get to go away on a long honeymoon. As you will spend most of the first few days in bed relaxing, it makes sense to spend a little more on accommodation. Countries like Spain are the perfect place to travel if you want good weather without breaking the bank. However, those of you with more substantial budgets might consider somewhere like Dubai.
You should now have most of the basics covered. We hope you have a fantastic wedding day, and that you stay with your partner for the rest of your life. It’s so nice to hear about people getting married at a time when the tradition seems to be dying out slightly. You are helping to change that trend. Well done!
