So, you are finally engaged! And the first thing that comes in your mind is to plan your wedding. It is easy to think of planning a wedding, but the real question is how to plan it? It is never a surprise that planning a wedding is a hard task. With all the events, wedding is perhaps the grandest of all, and the most difficult to handle.
Time is clicking, and you have so many things to consider. You want everything to be organized; in short you want your wedding to be as perfect as possible. You tend to browse all the latest bridal magazines that have pages of photos of stunning bridal gowns, rings, and other items related to weddings. You have read some wedding tips and ideas that can help you plan your big day. But the thing is, you are still stranded figuring out how to get things started.
When it comes to planning a wedding, the key is to start planning and organizing long before your wedding day comes.
Start by creating a wedding planning system that will help keep all your wedding details in one place. You can buy pre-made binder or make your own. To buy or to make, you have to make sure that your binder will have some tabs for each category your wedding planning will be having. Some examples of category are: wedding outfits, bridal jewelry, reception (catering, DJ, decorations, favors and etc.), ceremony, photography, transportation. Alternatively, you can have an accordion file, which will organize your wedding details using the same category tabs. This file will let you see each category at a glance. Whichever organizer you choose, use it to keep track of all you pictures, business cards, brochures, receipts and all the necessary documents related to each category.
Once you have picked the appropriate wedding planning system for your wedding, you can then start researching all about wedding. You can find so many wedding planning books in the market, or you can can research online. Visit your favorite local book store or online store, where you can find some writing tips to read on.
Use a wedding timetable, that will include all the things you will need to accomplish for the entire months before your wedding day. The first few things you will include on your wedding timetable are: brainstorming with fiance and parents about the budget and finances; deciding the number of guests that needs to be invited; deciding what type of wedding to plan; finding wedding coordinators. These are the basic things that a usual wedding timetable has. You can add or change it using your computer, if needed.
Once all the details involved in your wedding are clear to you, you can then start to build a manpower that will help you get prepared. You have your groomsmen, bridesmaids and other wedding attendants whom you can entrust several tasks needed for your wedding. Also, you can start scouting different wedding supplies you will need, such wedding invitations, wedding decorations, wedding favors, reception supplies and the likes.
