Planning a wedding for any couple is not only expensive but can be extremely stressful. It is important to keep a clear head, listen to each others needs and wedding ideas and discuss them together.
Most brides have already been planning their wedding ideas from a very young age. When it comes to the big day and people are trying to offer advice and help it is not uncommon for the bride to become resentful and feel like people are taking over her dreams.
Always remember it is your wedding day and if your wedding ideas are not to the taste of some of the guests, so what! It is your day to have things exactly as you have always wanted and dreamed of.
When the time comes to discuss your wedding ideas with your partner bear in mind this is there day too. You may have it all planned out in your head but you need to consider his or her feelings as well.
Make sure you allow plenty of time to discuss your wedding ideas and it is vital you carry around a notepad and pen to jot down everything that pops into your mind along the way. Plan regular evenings together where you can relax and discuss your wedding ideas with out being interrupted.
Once you have decided the theme you are going to put into place, the sooner you start organizing, booking and planning the better. Some wedding reception venues need to be booked as much as a year in advance so it is important to get every thing in place as soon as possible to avoid being disappointed.
Not only will you have to make all the bookings you will also need to order the wedding cake, the suits, the honeymoon, the wedding favors and send out wedding invitations together with all the other little factors than once in place will make the perfect day .
Speak to friends and family and get them involved, give everyone a job they can take on and once the job is done you can start to see your wedding ideas come to life.
Always check with florists the wedding flowers you want are in season. You may assume you can have any flowers you like but choosing flowers that are in season will save you a heap of cash.
References are one of the most important things when planning your wedding ideas. Always check the florist has good references and the same goes for the cake makers and the caterers. Get references from your friends and family and always have a trial before the big day.
A wedding day is the most important day of your life so plan, plan and plan it again until it is just right. Money is always a factor when deciding which wedding ideas will work best for both you and your partner but there are so many savings to be made by taking on some of the work yourself, even if it just makes the wedding favors or printing out homemade wedding invitations.
