A lot of brides and grooms can’t wait for their wedding day, they think about it from a very young age. However the thought of how to go about planning for the wedding day can be very daunting. Doing your research on how to go about planning a wonderful yet affordable wedding will help ensure your wedding day is wonderful.
The very first thing is to plan on how much you are willing spend on your wedding. You need to get the prices of the most costly items and agree on what you can be willing to go over the budget for and what you can save more on. Some websites even offer a budget calculator that will give you tips on where you can save money for your big day.
Choose A Venue:
Choosing a venue is very important and you should take your time in locating the right one. Factors you should note when looking for a wedding venue is the customer service, the quality of the food, the views and the location. When visiting these places you should have a notebook so you can mark the things you like and those you don’t. This will also help you in comparing the places later on.
You can also ask around from friends and family on what venues they recommend. Some websites also offer information on which venues you can choose from, other websites even offer reviews from other couples who have used the venues for their own weddings. With this information you can be able to compare places and see the good from the bad.
The right time to start looking for your venue is 12 to 18 months before the actual wedding day. Once you have made up your mind on which venue you want to use book it as soon as possible before someone else does. And to secure the venue for your wedding day it’s best to put a deposit.
Now that you have chosen your location the next thing to do is to work on your wedding dress. A wedding dress should be chosen months before your wedding day, the reason being some dress makers have a waiting list so you don’t want to be last in the line by the time you need your dress. If you are on a tight budget then you can opt for used wedding dresses as this can save you lots of money in having one designed for you.
