Planning a wedding involves making lots of decisions, and depending your wedding date, the process of planning can be hectic to say the least. This is why you need all the help you can get in terms of ideas and activities that will help you plan your wedding with ease.
1. Always Involve Your Partner In Planning
Your partner is plays a huge part in planning your wedding. When you cooperate with each other in the wedding plans, you may be pleasantly surprised by the creative ideas that you can come up with together. You may not always agree on everything, but do agree to disagree and find solutions that please the both of you.
2. Decide On The Guest List Before Anything Else
The number of people attending your wedding affects almost every aspect of wedding planning, from the venue, to the budget, the menu, and everything else in between. Sit down with your partner and decide carefully who gets to come to your wedding, and then make the other decisions around the guest list.
3. Choose A Location For Your Wedding
Whether your wedding will be indoors or outdoors, the venue you select should comfortably fit all your guests and provide amenities such as a kids’ section, bathrooms and care for the elderly guests. Also check whether there will be room for you and your partner to have some private moments together at the venue. Choose a location that will be accessible for your guests, meaning that they do not have to travel far to get to your wedding.
4. Choose A Theme For Your Wedding
This is where all the creativity comes in, and you can have the wedding of your dreams. The theme of your wedding can range from the seasons- summer wedding, winter wedding, fall wedding or spring wedding. You could also have a Victorian wedding or a beach wedding. Themes are abundantly available for you to choose from, and you can even combine two themes into one. Only make sure that your theme is practical enough and will be appreciated by your guests as well.
5. Create A Realistic Budget For Your Wedding
How much you spend on your wedding can make or break the planning process. Many disagreements arise from this, especially if one partner has more costly ideas for the wedding than the other.

Thinking long term usually helps in making the wedding budget.

Do not let the planner, even with their expertise on weddings, to make major decisions for you. You can of course leave room for adjustments, but your planner should be able to make your guest list, budget, venue and other parts of your wedding work together.
