A wedding is almost a once-in-a-life experience. We want to make it memorable. We dream of this day since our childhood. But not all of us had exactly a dream wedding. For some wedding can be a nightmare. Obviously planning for a dream wedding starts with finding your dream partner.
Are you planning to get married soon? You should start filling a binder with all the details from your engagement party all the way to your honeymoon.
Where should you begin? Here are a few tips.
Steps towards a dream wedding Plan
Set the date
This is the best way to get your planning started. It will allow you to steer the plans in the right direction. Is the wedding happening in the winter?
If so, you should consider an indoor ceremony. Moreover, popular venues, bands, photographers, and vendors tend to book up in advance. Work backward from the wedding date to prioritize which things need to be handled immediately and which ones can wait.
Discuss, re-discuss, again go through the list. Once you’re done, check your Facebook friend list, your inboxes. Did you miss that important person?
Making this decision will set several planning wheels in motion, including bridal party gowns, flowers, and invites. If you are planning a summer or spring wedding, choose beautiful, muted pastels such as pale pistachio green and Caribbean Sea.
Fall and winter weddings, on the other hand, usually go well with greens and grays. The best way to envision your wedding colors is by grabbing several paint swatches from the nearest hardware store.
What is your vision?
Determine your overall vision. Will the theme be vintage, romantic, or modern? When you have a clear picture of what you want, you will be able to select personal touches, design your invitations, and choose the décor.
Don’t forget to involve your would be wife/husband in the planning, remember he/she has every right to put in their perspective.

Don’t forget the photographer
It is important that you find someone who will be taking photos in the photographic style that you want.
Right now, the most common photography trend at weddings is journalistic: capturing pictures of the wedding, bridal party, as well as unique details such as shoes and rings.
Close-up photos showing natural expressions are also very trendy. Make sure that you smile a lot because most pictures will be uploaded to social media on the big day.
Focus on food and entertainment
What will your guests eat? Figure out the foods that you want to include on the menu ahead of time to avoid last-minute confusion. Are some guests allergic to seafood? You should have a variety of foods so that people can choose what they want.
When it comes to entertainment, you need to decide whether you want to hire a live band or a wedding DJ. Your choice should entertain both the young and older guests.
This means that you should steer clear of singers who sing rude songs because children will be present.
As your wedding day approaches, having a clear plan will help you to feel confident when the day finally arrives.
