Planning your own wedding may turn out to be more difficult than you think. While hiring a good wedding planner is believed to be an ideal solution, the right wedding planner may not be the same for everyone, just like a pair of shoes.
You really want to be able to connect to your wedding planner in order to create the best wedding experience you could.
With that said, here are a few tips that would go a long way in helping you effectively plan your wedding event.
Figuring out a guest list
Figuring out who to invite and who to leave out can be a challenging task. However, planning your guest list is often the most expensive, and most crucial part of the event.
It’s something that will allow you to find an ideal wedding venue as well. That said, you may want to stick to inviting those that really want to come to your wedding, and not the ones that don’t want to come but you feel like you have to invite them out of guilt.
Sticking to a budget
Setting and sticking to a budget might seem like a small factor, but it can very well make or break your wedding experience. Wedding expenses can often get way beyond the “affordability” zone pretty quickly, so setting a budget is a must.
You can get more from your “wish list” later when/if you’re left with a good part of your budget after taking care of the more important things.
You will also want to make sure that your planning schedule leaves no room for any errors. After all, even a bit of a mess up can lead to a lot of panic in the final days.
It may also be important to have more days for orders that are of an unstable nature and may take longer than what you have been told by the vendor.
Event Planning Tools
If you’re an event planner planning a perfect wedding for someone, you will probably thank yourself for using some of those creatively-built event planning tools. Ranging from budget tools to checklist and reminder apps, they can come in really handy.
Try to go for that unique twist
You may be planning many events every year, but a wedding always tends to be special. Trying and give it a slightly unique twist, especially with respect to the design, will really help it stand out as an event and make it a more memorable experience.
