Wedding Planning: How Do You Plan Your Dream Wedding?

Your boyfriend has finally popped the question and everyone is excited. But then it hits you, the wedding planning. All the preparation and the details suddenly become so overwhelming because you don’t just want a wedding, you want your dream wedding. How are you going to do it?

There are few guidelines to keep in mind when planning your wedding:

  • First things first, decide on a date. Factor in everything from your family and friends availability, public holidays, venue possibilities, weather and what you expect your dream day to be.
  • Find a Wedding Planner. You want someone that you feel comfortable with and trust. Keep in mind that it doesn’t matter how much experience the wedding planner has, it’s their passion for your wedding and their attention to detail that counts most. After all, you tell them what to do anyway, so that you can relax and enjoy your engagement.
  • Book Your Venue. Good venues can be booked up to a year in advance, so ensure that you do this in good time. There are also numerous factors that you must keep in mind for choosing a venue, but I’ll address this in another article.
  • Find a Wedding Dress or dress maker. You want to get your wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses finalised long before your wedding date, because you’ll need to plan for fittings and accessories. The same goes for the groom and the groomsmen’s suits and accessories.
  • Decide on your Décor design. What is the theme of your wedding and the colour scheme?
  • Book your DJ, Photographer, Videographer, Caterer, Wedding and Florist. Make sure that each of them knows their tasks, venue and times of the wedding.
  • Prepare Your Wedding Invitations and Wedding Stationery. Then send them out about 2 months before your wedding day. Don’t forget that when you set your date, you need to send everyone a save-the-date email or letter.
  • Confirm your Guest List. Prepare the wedding souvenirs, confirm the numbers with your caterer and venue.
  • Before the Wedding Day. Meet with all your wedding suppliers and give them a schedule and checklist to ensure that everyone is in sync. Throughout the entire process, your wedding planner will ensure that all this is done and also prepare a budget planner to make sure that all payments to suppliers are made when due.

Then finally all the preparations and planning come together as a whole on the wedding way. Leave it all in the hands of your wedding planner. Get yourself and your bridesmaids ready and prepare for your flawless dream wedding.
