Planning for a wedding is never easy. That perfect wedding night we all remember and love is the result of endless days and nights of planning. The key is to communicate with your other half throughout the process. It is, after all, the biggest day of both of your lives, so make the process enjoyable. We have prepared a wedding-planning checklist which will hopefully make the process a lot less difficult.
Step 1: Decide on a wedding theme
A theme is an overarching thought that helps guide the overall decision making. It provides a clear direction for the usually-difficult decisions, such as choosing a venue, menu, performances, decorations and more. For example, deciding on a traditional Chinese wedding theme will help narrow it down to a Chinese set dinner and a traditional Chinese attire dress code.
Step 2: Set a wedding budget and work around it
Having a wedding budget helps make sure you never go overboard, as starting a newly-married life in debt is never good. What most people don’t realise is that it is possible to make an unforgettable wedding night without burning a hole in their pockets. For instance, reducing the flowers and decorations might help save a large sum of money. Having them at the entrance and picture-perfect spots is more than enough. Alternatively, choosing to make a more intimate wedding reception for those who matter instead of organising a large wedding reception—and inviting the people you don’t completely know—will also do wonders in terms of budgeting!
Step 3: Create a simple checklist to keep track
Unlike this top-to-bottom wedding-planning checklist you are reading now, this simple checklist is one you will make after deciding on the theme and budget. Planning a wedding is an overwhelming task, and overdoing it is a step in the wrong direction. With a checklist, you will be able to keep yourself in check by taking things one step at a time.
Step 4: Get a wedding planner to help perfect the wedding
The biggest day of the husband and wife-to-be is also the busiest day of their lives. However, the few weeks leading up to the wedding is not a walk in the park either. There’s that unspoken expectation the couples often put upon themselves to make the wedding reception perfect for everyone. Getting a wedding planner helps solve most of the problem, if not all of them. Wedding planners or wedding specialists have meticulous minds and most importantly, time to oversee the entire wedding planning process from top to bottom. They are also great in giving advice as they know the area and venue best, so you can bounce off your thoughts and ideas if you need to.
