If you have been dreaming of your wedding day sine you were a little girl, you may already have a few ideas about what kind of wedding you want, even if you’re nowhere near to getting married. You are not alone, iv had lots of friends who have been planning this special day since they can remember. On the other hand, some people may think that you’re a little crazy if you’re already thinking about the wedding when you’re single or you’re only in the early stages of a relationship. However, we all know how stressful wedding planning can be. And we’ve all seen our nearest and dearest turn into bridezillas. So really its just common sense for you to be able to get a jump on your ideas. I held out out for a year of being engaged before I would even consider starting the planning process as I really wanted to enjoy being a fiance...something which I later regretted when the stress and timeline began to set in. For you know what kind of wedding you want, to look into options, and to start thinking about the cost. So let’s look at things you can preplan.
First of all, you might want to think about where you want to get married. And this can work in a few ways. You might not be able to identify who you want at your wedding just yet, but you can get in mind whether you want it to be locally or destination. At home or abroad. And look at some possible wedding locations. These places can get booked months in advance. So if you know where you want to get married, it can save you the stress of searching around venues when the time comes. I also feel that its from the location that many of the details follow
The theme can determine a lot of difficult wedding decisions for you, such as flowers, decor, and even main theme colors. So you can work this out well in advance if you want. Take a look at different wedding guide options and consider trends. Then think about what you might like. Because it can mean that many options are all worked out for you.
And if you love food, then why not work out what you want now. Sure, at the time, you will have to do tastings and find the right people. But it doesn’t hurt to have an idea now and maybe even a list of chefs or caterers that you’d like to consider at the time.
The Bridal Party
If you want to get an idea of the bridesmaids you’d like to go with in your mind too, then this is also a great idea. Choosing your bridesmaids may seem hard, but if you keep this in mind early, then it will be much easier than you think. You can also use this time to really consider which of your friends/ Family will be a good fit and help out at a time when you really need it
And finally, we have the dress! Now, you may not want to actually go and try on wedding dresses just yet - that could be a little extreme. But, it doesn’t hurt to have an idea of what you might like. Do you know what color you’d like to go with? And the shape? It can be fun to work out what sort of style might suit you so that you know what you want to try on when it is time for you to go wedding dress shopping for real. When it comes to the real thing you may be surprised be how particular you actually are... and beware of the dreaded white dress blur (when they all begin to look the same)
