Wedding To Dos Before The Big Day

Dec 6, 2007
Saying yes to a much longed for question uttered by the man of your dreams may leave you in a state of euphoria for a while; a day or two maybe. But then again you need to break out of that aura and wake up from the daydream to face up to the numerous wedding preparations that you need to plan and shape up for that fateful day when you will say "I do" to the man whom you are going to spend the rest of your life with.

For most brides, the months or weeks of preparation before the wedding is a mixed emotional state. There is the excitement and anticipation of finally being able to fulfill a cherished childhood dream that every girl has: walking down the aisle in a glorious white wedding gown. And looking at the other side of the coin, there is the stress and the anxiety of getting the wedding things and effects you need in place. But then again, there are ways to handle these strain related matters and that is proper planning.

First thing that you should think about in setting up your wedding is the budget. Ultimately your finances are the starting point in considering the overall arrangements of your wedding. How much you can afford will tell you how many guests you should have, what venue to choose, what wedding theme to avail of and how much you can spend on your wedding dress and wedding favors. Knowing how much money you have at the get go also gives you the option to contemplate and deliberate whether you can content yourself with a small intimate celebration or whether you should avail of loans from trusted family or friends to augment your wedding funds. Either way the decision is up to you. Most people would advise however that it would not matter how great and how expensive the wedding is, what is important is that the event is as memorable as you would have it.

Next on the list is determining your partners. There is the wedding planner, the caterer, the florist and the photographer to name a few. A good number of brides choose to handle wedding preparations on their own. This is because they want to their big day to be more personal and memorable. However, a good wedding planner can take a lot of stress out of your hands. Her job entails fixing up everything that you need and want, coordinating with all the other guys mentioned earlier and even accounting for your funds to make sure that everything is within the budget constraints. Some wedding planners can be more expensive than most so be sure to ask around and select one that best suits you. After you are putting this person in charge of making your fairy tale come true, she must be worth every buck.

Although the wedding planner may have all the moves, the theme for the wedding is for you and your future spouse to decide on. The wedding theme is the foundation from which the other wedding preparations follow. If you decide on a garden wedding then it follows that your dress, your cake, your wedding favors, your table setting and even your food will carry flower patterns and fringes on them. A beach themed wedding can show for some shells, sand or beach decorations. Whatever wedding theme you have in mind, it is usually characteristic of the personalities of the bride and groom or perhaps their likes are the things that make them happy. After all, there is nothing more splendid and wonderful than a wedding celebration.
