Do-It-Yourself Wedding

Jul 31, 2008
As soon as you announce that you are getting married, friends of yours will advise you to get the services of a wedding planner. While it is true that the wedding planner can take care of all the nitty-gritty details for this momentous occasion, the fees can also take big chunk off your budget. Most importantly, if you give them too much independence in planning, you might not recognize whose wedding it is you are going too as it could be her idea of a perfect wedding, but not yours.

Conversely, organizing your own wedding will involve an organizing mechanism to be sure that even the smallest details are taken cared of. Secure yourself a book on wedding planning. A reliable book will list down all the things that need to be accomplished to make as complete as possible from your theme and its possible total look to the flowers and other finishing touches.

Most wedding planner books will start out by giving you a number of ideas for overall themes or visions for your wedding. Do you want to have a beach theme? What about a new-year's celebration? A garden wedding on a spring day? A classic church ceremony? Once you have an idea in your head of what you want your wedding to look like you can start the actual planning of the day.

Most importantly, you should establish how much funds you are allotting for the wedding. The book can also help you out in this aspect. These books lay out a sheet detailing estimated costs for each item such as flowers, photographers, attires, dinner, among others. But before you can allocate anything, you should already have an idea how much you have set aside for the wedding because wedding packages can range from $1,000 to $100,000. How lavish you want your wedding to be is dependent upon you and your future partner's pocketbooks. Of course, your budget will affect the number of invited guests and the allocation of the money for each item.

As soon as the budget has been finalized, the wedding planner book will guide you through the entire procedure, from picking out the venues for the ceremony and the wedding party, the wardrobe, flowers, etc. and the coming together the various aspects of the wedding. We cannot expect the book to be as expansive as a real wedding planner, but it could give you ample guidance and hopefully you can combine it with your own creativity and passion then your dream wedding is now well on its way of coming to whopping success.
