Tips on Planning your Wedding Day

I think we can all agree to the fact that every girl’s dream is to walk down the aisle and marry her one true love. So when the time finally came that he popped that question, you just can’t wait to start planning your wedding. Nonetheless, it has also been said: Wedding planning can be a pretty daunting task. With a million little details to consider, even just starting can be overwhelming. I have a few tips to consider when preparing your wedding day:

  1. SET YOUR BUDGET First of all, you have to decide this with your partner, what kind of wedding do you want? Do you want an intimate or extravagant one? It is very important that you know your budget limit since this will be your guide on choosing those beautiful details of your wedding. This will also help you to decide where you will put the big chunks of your budget, in our case it’s our Photo/Videographer since this will serve as our beautiful memories.

  2. MAKE A CHECKLIST You have to know the basics of a Wedding Event. To give you an example; it’s the Church and Reception Venue, Caterer, Wedding Dress, Photographer & Videographer, Coordinator or Wedding Planner, and Hair and Makeup Arist. For us, those are our non-negotiables. From there, you might want to add all the other details like getting a Musician, Event Stylist, Favors for your Entourage and Principal Sponsors, having a prenup photoshoot, and so on.

  3. GET A WEDDING COORDINATOR – Believe me, no matter how hands on you are as a bride-to-be, you still can’t handle everything on your own. Hiring a professional means getting your peace of mind as well. I’ve attended a few wedding events wherein there’s no coordinator and sad to say, it’s very unorganized. Let me give you a few reasons on why you should get one: You don’t want to go back and forth checking your stuff on your wedding day, of course you want to cherish every moment on that day. Second reason is that they know well the industry, they’ve seen the possible glitches that might happen on your wedding day so they know how to handle it right away. Third reason, they can help you on choosing reputable wedding suppliers. So please get your peace of mind.  😉

  4. RESEARCH FOR EXCELLENT AND REPUTABLE SUPPLIERS – This is a once in a lifetime event, so you might as well get someone who can deliver great quality of service on your special day.

  5. Lastly, as all of these details are vital for a successful wedding day, and problems might come, just enjoy the journey with the love of your life.  😉
