Do You Know These Tips for Your Wedding Preparation?

Aug 18, 2007
You may have probably started your wedding planning. You have a lot to prepare for. Among all these preparation works, you may find some of them more important while some less essential. However, some couples may find them lost since they do not do the work step by step. Below are some of the tips for your preparation.

The very first thing you need to be very clear is your budget. Of course it depends on how much you can afford and how much you are willing to pay. It is certain that you do not want to spend more than what you originally plan to spend. Some couples may seek for wedding loans but it is suggested that it is better not to be in debt because of the wedding. As a result, you should try your best to stick to your budget.

Besides, you can make a list of items in the order of their importance. It may be quite difficult to decide which items are more important. However, in order to stick to the budget, it is unavoidable to make these decisions. You can certainly decide the importance based on your preference. At the end of the day it is your wedding and you should give the items you like higher ranks. However, you should also be objective so that you will not miss any "must have" items. The list should also be accepted and agreed by both of you and your partner.

After you make the list, you can discuss with your friends and relatives about the items on the list. This is one of the most difficult tasks. Most couples find it very difficult to handle the different, or sometimes contradicting, opinions for the wedding. You should always remind yourself that it is your wedding. You are only seeking for their opinions and advices. If you agree with what they say, that is fine and you can adjust your list. If you do not agree with some of their opinions, you can discuss with your partner again to see if you should stick to your original ideas.

When the list is totally fixed (in fact, you may still adjust it later), you can try to find ways to add your personal touch to the top items so that your wedding can be more personalized. Unless you have plenty of time and budget, it is not wise to try to personalize every little item in your wedding.

Planning a wedding is like a design project. You have limited time and budget and it is not realistic to make everything totally perfect. As a designer myself, I will try to make the most important parts perfect and other parts acceptable. This notion also applies to wedding planning. Of course your "acceptable" standard may already be a "perfect" standard for some others.

Now you have already prioritized your wedding items. You can start really working on them. If you find a task too difficult for you to handle, you can always ask for help from your friends and relatives. There is nothing to be shy to ask for help. And as I always say, they should be more than happy to help you since it is your wedding.

If you plan your wedding and work on it step by step, it is sure that you should be able to have a memorable wedding.
