If you want the perfect wedding, then you need to put in a lot of effort. A wedding is a special and magical affair, and the fact is, most people do not know where to begin. The good thing is that no matter your budget, if you give it enough time and attention, anyone can have the wedding of their dreams. Sometimes it may take a little thinking outside the box to get what you need to have the day to remember. So, to help you out, here are a few tips:
Start it Off Right
So the perfect wedding starts off on the right foot. That means you need a magical engagement, a prelude to the wedding and marriage to come. So, talk to your partner about what you want or need in an engagement. Perhaps you want a romantic escape, and for them to pop the question, perhaps you both want unique engagement rings. Whatever you want, you need to communicate it to each other and ensure that it begins as it is meant to go on, like a good omen.
A budget is a must, especially if funds are limited. A budget can help to set your expectations and ensure you don't start your marriage with a massive debt hanging over you. When you have a budget it is essential that you stick to it, for the reason just stated. To create one, you need to work it out based on your financial circumstances, what you have saved, and what any family members, friends etc., are willing to give you. It is important that you begin your hunt for all things within the price ranges that you set. Don't go and see a venue which is way out of your budget. This is not going to do anyone any favours at all.
Plan Well in Advance
For a wedding to go off without a hitch, then you need to get that calendar out and start planning well ahead of time. Maybe even a year or more. You do not want to cause yourself and undue stress or rush into making a decision. You need to be thoughtful and weigh up all your options. Try and create a rough estimate of what the cost for each item will be. Also, put things into categories such as essential items and would likes. The plan for the items can be created alongside your budget as they are part and parcel of the same things. Planning in advance and having a lot of time also give you options. Perhaps you see a deal on something or dresses that are half-price at some point throughout the planning process. Special deals will help you have a more expensive wedding for less.
The venue may well be the first thing that you set in stone, the venue and date. Ensure you see as many places within your budget as possible and have a list of things you need the venue to have, like wheelchair access.
