Aug 18, 2007
It is true that planning a wedding can be very stressful. However, with careful planning you can have a perfect wedding, no matter how big or how small. The magic word is "planning". There are number of factors to consider when planning for the perfect wedding.

Setting the Date
Planning starts from the very beginning. There is no wedding without a wedding date. date. There are many factors consider when selecting a date. Of course the date you choose needs to be convenient for you and your fiance. Unless you are planning to elope, the date also needs to be convenient for your friends and family as well. It is recommended to select a date that is at least three months away, in order to allow your relatives and friends to make themselves available for the special event.

Additionally, make sure that the date selected does not clash with any holidays or important working days that might affect attendance at the ceremony. As soon as you have a date, you can determine the time table for announcing your engagement and sending out invitations so that guests have sufficient advance notice to prepare.

Choosing a Type of Ceremony
The type of ceremony you select plays an important role in how enjoyable your wedding will be to you. Will you have a large and formal wedding, or will it be a small informal ceremony and only family and close friends wedding? Maybe you want a large wedding, but you would prefer a semi-formal event.

You need to know what type of ceremony you want as soon as you start planning. All of your plans are going to center around the type of ceremony, since the arrangements are going to differ greatly for each style.

Budget
Weddings can be very costly. Make sure that you know how much money you can afford to spend on your wedding and stick to your budget. Each expense must be considered systematically. There are many expenses associated with planning a wedding. Just a few of the expenses to consider include: wedding attire, food, decorations, wedding favors, honeymoon expenses, music, accommodations, location, and many more things.

Shopping Around
There are a number of vendors who specialize in providing wedding-related products and services. When you plan ahead of time, do some window shopping before you start singing contracts. It is in your best interest to do some research regarding what is available and to compare prices.

Booking Facilities
Advance book any facilities you will need to have your perfect wedding. It is a bad idea to wait until the last minute to make facility reservations. If you put off this task, you will likely find that hall, park, chapel that you want to reserve is unavailable when you need it. The same is true for photographers, florists, DJs, caterers, wedding cake artist, seamstress, and anyone else you may need to make your wedding perfect.

In addition, you might actually save some money for booking early. Many wedding industry vendors offer discounts to brides and grooms who make their reservations far ahead of time.

Delegating Chores and Errands
As soon as you start telling your friends and family members that you are getting married, they will likely ask what they can do to help. Take them up on their offers! Planning a wedding is a huge project. Don't do it all by yourself if you have people who want to help you. By delegating some of the wedding planning tasks, you can reduce some of the preplanning stress.

As you can see, with the right planning you can have the perfect wedding you always dreamed about. Your wedding day is special day that you will cherish for life. Careful planning helps make sure that the day you end up remembering is just the way you always dreamed it would be.
