Planning out your wedding day is guaranteed to be one of the most stressful events of your life. Nowadays many people decide to plan their weddings by themselves as they feel they can get done as they require it and also due to the fact that hiring a wedding planner is costly especially when the entire cost of a wedding is at an all time high currently. It is important to not though that planning your own wedding can lead you in to many obstacles but by educating yourself about the most common problems you can learn to avoid them and ensure that the whole wedding goes on without a hitch. The key to ensuring a smooth process is to plan everything ahead of schedule and assigning tasks to certain people.
You can start with fine tuning the guest list for your wedding. Most of the decisions you make such as the venue and the meal list depend on the amount of guests you invite. It is important that you keep in mind that not everyone you invite will make it to the wedding. People find this hard to believe but it is extremely common to miss out on a wedding due to commitments to your work, sickness and other commitments.
When choosing the location you can choose an extravagant location or you can choose one of those affordable reception venues.
The advantage of choosing cheap wedding reception venues is that it allows you to spend more on additional things like the meal plan for the wedding or gives you the chance to accommodate more guests. The interior decoration you want depends on the venue you decide on.
Many people are dazzled by picture perfect weddings in movies and novels and strive to achieve the same effect in real life. They like to have a seamless connection starting with the napkins to the flowers on the brides’ maids. This is quite excessive and unnecessary as hardly anyone pays close attention to tiny and trivial details such as the color of the napkin. The invited guests are more focused on things like the happy couple and the meal plan and if they are going too fed before they get hungry. If alcohol is served, you should ensure there is plenty of it and that music is a must for the event. Be it a live band or a podcast off a streaming site, music guaranteed to lift the mood up and get people in to the vibe. A tip to keep in mind is to avoid agreeing to pick up guests from the airport as this could essentially force you to play chauffeur until the wedding is done.
