How to Properly Plan a Wedding Well in Advance

Now that you’ve sealed the deal and set a date for your big day, it’s time to start thinking about how to plan your perfect wedding. There’s a lot to organize, decide on and coordinate, which is why it can feel pretty overwhelming when you don’t know where to even start. So allow us to help! To properly plan a wedding well in advance for a successful, stress-free day, here are some key points to keep in mind.

Start With The Theme

Start by choosing your theme of preference first since this will help you decide on the overall style and look of your wedding. Sit down with your fiancé and hash out the style that you both like best. You might have to compromise if one partner wants a huge glamorous wedding but the other was thinking of a small intimate gathering. Some popular themes include country, industrial, boho chic, ballroom and rustic. Take as much time as you need to get this right so you can have a clear idea of what you really want.

Get Real On Your Budget

Everyone wants a fabulous gorgeous wedding, but it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to throw one. To avoid breaking the bank, we always recommend coming up with a strict budget to follow ahead of time. This will create some boundaries and keep you on track with your expenditures. To smartly plan the expenses, remember to get quotes from different places for your rentals, flowers and catering.

Figure Out Timing

Weddings take more time to prepare than most people think, so it’s important to consider how long it will take to put all the pieces together before setting a date. Your budget can also help you determine the appropriate timeline. For instance, if you need more time to save up, you should aim to plan the date a few years down the road when it makes more sense.

Pick The Right Venue

Destination weddings are a popular choice; however, if you want to have most of your family and friends attend, then you might want to consider keeping it local instead. Always look for a venue that has plenty of experience hosting weddings and can offer most of what you’ll need – wedding planning, onsite catering, professional wait staff, AV equipment, outsourcing options, parking, and more. The more services the venue provides, the easier your planning process will be.

Make It Fail-Proof

If you want your wedding to go off without a hitch, consult with a wedding planner. Better yet, if your venue has a wedding planner or coordinator available, reach out to them directly. They’re the ideal person to have on your side since they already know everything about the venue and can offer helpful advice and suggestions.
