The most important tip for planning your wedding day :
Follow your heart in what you feel you need to do to make your Wedding day, the day of your dreams
1• Let one vendor lead you to another.
Your wedding photographer can tell you which is his /her favourite florist’s, and your planner should know which band packs the dance floor.
2• Food for your wedding day crew.
A less expensive meal for them will do the job. You will have to let your Kitchen chef know a few days before the wedding how many people you need to feed (don’t forget photography assistants) and what you want to serve.
3• Just ask.
Your vendors are your go-to, trusted experts during your planning process. You should feel free to say what you really want—It can be doing a bridal portrait session after rather than an engagement session before your wedding. You should feel that you can have a conversation with them about what you want. It is up to them to tell you what is and isn’t possible with your wedding budget.
4• Picking your guests.
Place immediate family, the bridal party and best friends on top of your list. Follow with other family and friends you can’t imagine celebrating without. Under that, list your parents’ friends a few neighbours and so on. Start from the bottom eliminating until you reach your ideal number of guest
5•Create a wedding planning schedule and do things one by one with small logical steps.
Don’t take on too much too fast and end up with everything overwhelming you.
5•Make sure guests know where they’re going.
Ask your ceremony and reception venue for recommended driving directions. Then include the best directions on your wedding website or email them to your guests
Ask your celebrant for a list of restrictions (if any). For instance, is flash photography or even photography prohibited?
7•Pick the three things that are most important to you.
Start your budget planning with prioritising, with a number, the different aspects of your wedding day. Like the music, your wedding dress, the flowers and your photographer, and put a number to each of them— Put most of your money into your number ones and spend less on the other numbers. (But everything can’t fall into the number one category) If a designer gown and fab food are what you really want, you may have to choose a simpler invitation and less floral arrangements
8•Keep a contact sheet with your vendor contacts on you on your wedding day
it may come in handy when you have to call one of them.
9•Be done planning your wedding one week before.
Try to have every detail planned the week before your wedding so you can fully enjoy the run-up to your big day.
