The Ultimate Guide To Planning Your Wedding

Planning a wedding is no small feat, which is why it’s so important to get organized as early as possible. We’ll talk about picking a date to choosing d├ęcor (eg. if you want a pipe and drape wedding) If you want to avoid last-minute stress and drama, start with these tips:

Choose a theme

We’re going to start with one of the most important tips for planning your wedding: choose a theme. A theme can be based on your favorite color, location or activity. You may also want to consider choosing a theme that matches the season in which you are getting married (for example, if it’s winter and snowing outside, maybe consider having an “Ice Palace” theme). Some couples prefer to incorporate their favorite movie or book into their wedding day as well; this could be anything from Jurassic Park to Harry Potter!

The key point here is that choosing an easy-to-execute idea will save you time and energy when planning out other aspects of your big day. If possible though, try not to get too caught up in details during this step because they’ll only serve as distractions later on down the line – trust us!

Pick a date

The first thing to do when planning your wedding is to pick a date. You’ll want to look for one that works for everyone, but keep in mind that it’s not just about you–it’s also about the other people who will be involved in your special day. You don’t want them having conflicts with other big events like birthdays and anniversaries, so try not choosing dates that are too close together or far apart from each other (unless you have no choice).

Also consider checking the weather forecast for your wedding day–or even better yet, check out what the weather was like during previous years on those same days! If there are any major storms coming through town during those months (or if they tend not to rain), then go ahead and plan accordingly by choosing an indoor location instead of an outdoor one like Central Park which could lead into disaster if things go wrong during this time period where everything seems perfect but then suddenly becomes chaotic due to natural disasters such as floods etcetera…If we’re talking about destination weddings here then obviously checking out what kind of climate exists where our destination spot is located would help us decide whether or not we should consider booking some type of insurance policy beforehand.

Hire a wedding planner

Hiring a wedding planner is the best way to ensure that your big day goes off without a hitch. Wedding planners are experts in their field, and they can help you avoid mistakes, plan logistics and details, manage vendors and make sure everything goes according to plan on the big day. They can advise on making those big time decisions such as whether this will be a pipe and drape wedding or a more simple design.

They’ll also save you time and money by taking care of all those little details that would otherwise eat up hours of your life–and give them back!

Get a venue that has everything you need in one place, including catering, tables/chairs, and pipe and drape

If you’re looking for a venue that has everything you need in one place, look no further than a wedding and event center. These venues have everything from catering to tables/chairs to pipe and drape–no need to rent anything else! They also offer unique locations for your ceremony, reception, or both. You can even set up your own wedding website so guests can RSVP online (instead of mailing back cards). And if all this still seems like too much work? Get yourself a wedding planner who will take care of all these details for you!

Decide on your guest list

Deciding who to invite to your wedding is a big deal. You may want to invite everyone you know, but that’s not always feasible. Take into account that some people might be unable to make it due to life circumstances or distance constraints, so don’t feel bad if they can’t come!

When deciding on a guest list size, think about how many guests would be comfortable at the venue you’ve chosen and what kind of food/drink service will be provided (if any). If there aren’t enough seats for all of them or if there isn’t enough room for them in line at the buffet table, then maybe cutting back on some names would make sense.

Also consider whether this person is important enough in your life that they deserve an invitation–and vice versa–when making such decisions; after all, not everyone deserves an invite.

Choose your bridesmaids, flower girls and wedding party

  • Choose your bridesmaids carefully. Your bridesmaids are an important part of the wedding, and they’ll be helping you with all the planning and details. You should choose people who have similar personalities and interests as you do, so that they’ll get along with each other. You also want to pick friends who can be relied upon to help out when needed–you don’t want someone who’s going to bail on their duties at the last minute!
  • Choose your flower girls carefully. Flower girls bring an extra dose of cuteness to any ceremony, so it’s important that they’re well-behaved during their big moment in front of everyone at the ceremony site (and beyond). Make sure these little ones understand what’s expected from them before choosing them as part of this special day; otherwise things could get messy fast!
  • Choose your wedding party carefully based on compatibility between members’ personalities/skillset/availability etc., but most importantly because YOU WANT THEM THERE!

Set a budget and stick to it!

When you’re planning your wedding, it’s important to set a budget and stick to it. You can do this by making a list of everything you need, everything you want, and then comparing those lists with the cost of each item. For example:

  • If an expensive cake is something that would make your day perfect but doesn’t fit into your budget (and let’s face it–most people don’t have unlimited funds when planning their weddings) then maybe consider choosing another dessert instead?
  • Or maybe there are certain things on the registry (like crystal glasses) that aren’t necessarily essential but would look great at the reception table? It might be worth spending extra money on those items so they look nice together in photos later down the line!

Rent or buy gowns, tuxedos, jewelry, shoes and accessories for yourself and your bridal party

  • RENTING is more economical (getting the pipe and drape wedding of your dreams is attainable with the right venue–no need to buy the materials outright).
  • BUYING is more sentimental.
  • DON’T BUY ANYTHING YOU DO NOT LOVE OR WILL ONLY WEAR ONCE!
  • DON’T SPEND MONEY YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE IN THE EVENT OF RETURNS, DAMAGES OR BREAKAGE IN TRANSIT (which can happen even with reputable companies).

Set up an online registry with a site like The Knot.com or Amazon.com. This way guests can easily shop for gifts without leaving their homes!
