How to plan your dream wedding?

The organization of a wedding requires the same level of planning as any other large-scale project, so, if you have already thought about your own marriage, you cannot miss multiple decisive factors and details to make everything flows smoothly and you and your partner can become the perfect hosts for your guests.

Some items like budget, key dates, number of guests and, of course, the venue, which can be in a hotel’s events room, in case that you prefer an indoors celebration, must be organized in a plan. That’s why we want to give you some advice to start the planning of your marriage:

  • Set a date. This the first step to achieve your dream wedding. Once you have chosen the date for your big day, it’s time to start working on the arrangements and planning of invitations, recruitment of vendors, purchases, payments and more in advance.
  • Establish your budget. A previous assessment of your budget is quite important for the planning of your event. In fact, it is essential to know how much of your money is available for the expenses of your marriage in order to spend it in the most rational way. It can be helpful to avoid any last moment issues.
  • Plan your purchases and bookings. Once you have clear your overall budget, it’s the moment to schedule all your activities, such as contacting and negotiating with vendors, whether it is for the purchase of your gown, makeup expenses, catering, DJ, booking of your venue, furniture and decoration rental, or any other stuff, always keeping in mind any unexpected drawback in your wedding.
  • Think about a concept. If you want to make your marriage an special event, you must decide whether it will be a traditional, modern or alternative kind of ceremony. Once you have this clear, it can be your starting point to align the decoration, outfits, colors, furniture, music, and everything to the theme.
  • Book a venue. Being ahead of other couples that are looking for the same venue is decisive to get the best place for your wedding. Be aware that there are critical seasons for booking, especially if you choose a hotel. Try to choose low seasons if possible, so you can avoid issues and delays on your booking.

These fundamental advice on planning can be very helpful to make your event better than expected, avoiding drawbacks and even good for any kind of budget.
