And it is no simple task to fulfill the wish completely while remaining within the budget you have.
Like all other successful events in the world, wedding also demands planning and organizing way before it happens. The more you plan, the better you will feel on your dream day.
Set Your Budget First
The first step you should take is the evaluation of your financial resources. How much can you afford to spend on your wedding? There is no need to panic if you are not able to draw huge amounts from your account. A perfect wedding doesn't have to be an expensive wedding.
Register Everything in Black and White
It is always recommended to create a wedding journal and make a priority list with the consent of your spouse. Keep a record of everything planned and every penny spent, in writing. Start your list with the 'must have' items. For your convenience, Here are few essential parts of every wedding. However, you should update the list according to your own priorities and limitations.
* Selection of the venue for the ceremony and the reception.
* Bride and groom's outfits and accessories.
* Ordering a wedding cake.
* Decision on the final menu and/or drinks.
* Applying for a marriage license.
* Purchase of rings.
* Selection and purchase of presents for the attendants.
By staying realistic, I mean planning every detail according to your budget. A wide variety of options are available for the concerns listed above. Choose one that is beautiful as well as permissible by your budget. Keep the guests list small, as a smaller list is better and more manageable.
As soon as the wedding date is decided, the selection of the venue becomes your next big concern. Don't worry! There are lots of beautiful public and private locations to choose from. Go to some unique place, as it will be memorable and charming for both you and the attendants. Once you pick a venue for the ceremony and reception to hold your dream wedding, you will feel that half of the job is done.
My tip of the day for food is to cut down the amount of people generally order. Just take care of everyone's requirement at dinner. Children and teens are generally neglected. If possible purchase your own drinks as it saves you a lot.
Decorations, Flowers and other Accessories
Choose a location that is stunning in itself and just needs to be touched with decoration. A beach resort or a historical building will turn into an amazing wedding site with some simple floral arrangements.
Hiring a Photographer
Hiring best wedding photographers is the latest trend to save costs, and I believe it's a wonderful idea.
Simple but elegant rings are forever. The most reasonable choice is the classic gold. One more thing you can do is to buy your rings as a set. Many rings are available as a set that includes the engagement ring and the bride's and groom's wedding bands.
Wedding Cake and Music
Your wedding cake will be the dessert of the wedding. Add different flavors to the cake and offer your guests different choices. For music, it is always better to compile your own music library instead of calling a DJ or relying on the hall's music system.
