- Wedding planning in first place needs to have everything you need to create completed at least a month before the wedding. That’s when all the chaos will hit and you won’t be able to handle the time-sucking crafting project.
2-Don’t plan to do anything yourself on your wedding day. Make sure you’ve assigned everything to your friends and family or hired staff who are assisting you. And confirm it again a week ahead and the day before the wedding.
4-Find out ahead of time what you need to do to fulfill the marriage license requirements where you’re getting married so you’re not in a panic to track down divorce decrees at the last minute. That just puts a damper on the whole experience.
5-Ceremony who and where: Finding an officiant and a ceremony site can be simple—if, say, you wish to marry in your hometown house of worship. And then there’s the destination wedding; just make sure that everyone you really want to join you and your groom can afford to travel and is able to make it.
6-The reception venue: Think again about those wedding dreams, and see how they mesh with reality. Perhaps you envision an outdoor garden. Fine, but what if you can’t find just the right place or the weather is an issue? Maybe there’s a quaint hotel with a pretty courtyard that would suit. Some couples find historic homes in their area to rent. Use local resources to narrow down options: a wedding planner or a recently married friend. Check wedding websites and bridal magazines. Then start scheduling visits.
Enjoy the time you’re spending planning your wedding and make it fun along the way. Weddings are a giant celebration of love and when you plan your special day on your own, you truly are planning the wedding of your dreams.
