Marriages, they say, are the biggest events one could conjure up in a lifetime and then there are the wedding planners. Can’t go for one now? Worry not, we have got it all here for your ready reckoning.
What’s your budget? – The best thing to not go wrong with the wedding budget is to create one and stick to it. Take help from the reputed financial virtuosos in your family to create a feasible budget and then remember to follow it. It would do you good to start planning this one well ahead of the big day, say a year ahead.
Start Connecting – Contacting the photographer, the florist, the decorators, the caterers and the venue can be quite a daunting task. But then, you want to be on the top of things, right? If you want to find individuals who promise to deliver after your taste, talk to friends, relatives or acquaintances and check out the prominent ones in your locality as well. Considering the wedding season can sweep off these haloed forces before you catch them, start your search now.
Where will the guests stay? – If you have guests from other cities planning to visit your wedding, get in touch with the hotel that can accommodate them. Convey the number of guests and the days you plan to block the rooms for, well in advance. Pay some token amount, if required.
The trousseau – Depending on what you plan to look like on your important day, get in touch with the designer or your trusted tailor to weave that exquisite piece of ensemble. Put a good thought into how you shall accessorize your look, from hair-do to make-up to jewellery. Go for make-up trials to nail your wedding guise.
Maintain your wedding binder – You and your partner can keep a track of all your plans in this readily available piece of stationery. Maintaining this binder will ensure you don’t miss out anything as you tick ‘em off once done. Right from the nitty gritty details to your honeymoon plans, this will be your savior for months to come.
Last minute details – We agree it can go a little awry as the wedding day draws near, but keep your guards up and sail through like a seasoned performer. Distribute the invitation cards, select your wedding cake, touch base with all the vendors, review the playlists and your guest list, go for your dress fittings and don’t forget to have a bachelor/ bachelorette party.
Lastly, do not fret over small things that might go wrong. Instead, look out for opportunities to make these could-be-disasters into fantastic wedding tales. Stay happy and plan your day in style.
