Planning A Wedding

wedding_photographyTo avoid being the bridezilla that everyone ends up hating by the end of the wedding day….or maybe before here are some steps to take:

  1. Picking a date: when you want to choose your wedding day make sure you give yourself ample time to be able to plan things out without being rushed and stressed out.
  2. Budget: talk with your fiancé and your both set of parents to figure out a budget and always remember it’s less stressful if you STICK to it.
  3. Divide and conquer: don’t be afraid to delegate different tasks out that are okay for another person to handle. Now you don’t want someone else picking out the brides dress or the grooms tux that is something for you and your fiancé to enjoy together. However, having someone find a variety of venues to have the wedding can ease the stress off of you.
  4. Invitations: make a list on both sides of who you want to invite. Figure out if you have a limit of invites or if you want to invite everyone you know. Invitations can be a reflection of you and your fiancé. Also look into seeing if a family member or friend has a job or a talent at creating them. This could cut your costs and help those who want to be involved in your special day.
  5. Venue: after choosing a venue off the list someone else created for you refer to step 6
  6. Decorators: if you choose to decorate yourself find things you can delegate to others because this is one task that can be very time consuming and stressful. If you’d rather avoid the extra stress find a decorator within your budget.
  7. Photographer: Whether you just pass out disposable cameras or have a Palm Springs Wedding Photographer photos are a huge part of your wedding, memories that will carry on for a lifetime.
  8. Food: one of the highlights for many people who attend wedding receptions is the food. There’s choices to what you want served- you and your fiancés favorites, buffets, candy bars, chocolate fountains….the options are endless, but always remember you do have a budget.
  9. Registering: keep the stores you pick from one to three – this way family and friends can focus on getting what you really want. When going through stores pick things out that are realistic and you know you will use.
  10. Attire: your wedding dress is by far one of the most important parts about getting married. The bride is the center of attention and picking one out makes you feel like the princess you imagined yourself to be when you were a little girl. Tuxes for the groom and groomsmen’s aren’t as intense, but when choosing your bridesmaids dress keep in mind everyone you asked- their sizes and how they view modesty.
