Planning a wedding is a fun and exciting time but it can also be stressful. The list of tasks and decisions can seem endless. So how do you remain calm and not let it overwhelm you? How can you have the best chance of your dream wedding going to plan? Well, we may not have the perfect answer, but we do know some tips and tricks that will help.
At Navarra Venues we are passionate about weddings; we want everyone to enjoy their special day. So, let’s have a look at how we can make this a reality. In this article, we will go through planning tips for a dream wedding that doesn’t miss a thing.
Planning your Dream Wedding
A wedding is one of the biggest parties you can throw. There are so many tiny details involved, it’s easy to get lost in the madness. So, therefore, you must stay organised. And what is the best way to stay organised? To make a list of course! If you’re not sure where to begin, then look online. There are plenty of templates to choose from, download and personalise. You can even get wedding planning apps. Once you’ve done this you will have a clear picture of everything that is to come and can begin putting things in place:
Make a Timetable
This step goes hand in hand with making that initial list. Once the list is created you can make a timetable to plan out each step. This ensures you will stay on track. You can tick off each job as you go. It means you won’t get to the final few weeks and be inundated with jobs that you forgot to do earlier.
If you’re Going to Hire a Wedding Planner, Do it Early
Why do it all yourself? Hiring a wedding planner is a great way to take some pressure off you and your fiancé. If you decide to do so, then do it early. The wedding planner will do the list-making and timetable for you. Leaving you free to do all the fun stuff (like choosing outfits or planning the honeymoon).
A wedding planner will work collaboratively with you. You tell them your vision and they help to bring that to life. They can be an invaluable resource in planning as they know the ins and outs of the wedding industry.
This is probably one of the most enjoyable steps! Choosing the theme, feel, colours and vibe of your wedding. You can make boards on Pinterest, save pictures on Instagram and visit venues and florists. Do you want something classic and traditional? Or perhaps quirkier and a bit different? The options are endless. It allows you and your fiancé to put that personal touch on such an important day. Remember it is your dream wedding, so do what is in your heart.
Lean on Your Family and Friends
This can be hard if you’re a control freak (like so many of us), but it really does help. Even if it’s just for emotional support or someone to vent to. Our family and friends are there to help, and they will likely want to be involved in some way. It’s an exciting time, so share that excitement and joy whilst also giving them a few sneaky tasks to do.
Don’t Forget the Rehearsal Dinner Details
A rehearsal dinner is a key event in the wedding timetable. It is where you finalise plans and squash any issues before the big day. So don’t neglect it. Plan the rehearsal, food afterwards, guests and seating. Buy yourself something nice to wear and don’t forget to enjoy it. It is the last step before you tie the knot at your dream wedding.
Finally, Enjoy Your Big Day!
It’s finally here. All that planning has paid off, so have a glass of champagne and let your hair down.
How Long does it Take to Plan your Dream Wedding?
There is no set time in wedding planning. You can customise your timetable to make it fit in with your life. It depends on how busy you and your fiancé are, perhaps you both work full time so only have weekends for planning. It depends on the date or season you want to get married. Perhaps you have a significant date in mind which means a quicker timeline. Then there is engagement length, how long do you want to be engaged for? It’s really up to you, so don’t get too stressed about having to have it all done within a specific timeframe.
