When it comes to romantic relationships, one of the most romantic moments for a couple can be the moment when they get engaged. However, actually planning the wedding can sometimes be far from romantic, in fact it can be downright stressful. Here are some ideas for couples who want to make planning a wedding just as enjoyable as the thought of the wedding itself.
Make a list of all your priorities for the wedding. Write down everything you would like to have at your wedding and then put each item into one of three categories: essential, important and not necessary. This will help you focus on getting the most essential things accomplished for your special day.
There is no requirement that you have to have a “white wedding.” Try to make your wedding reflect who you are as a person and make it fun instead of stressful. There are so many ways you can create a wedding from just your own personal interests and favorite colors. Don’t be afraid to go non-traditional.
Consider hiring a travel agent to book traveling plans for your group of close family and friends. You want to take care of your loved ones, and make sure they get the best deal. With everything else that goes into planning a wedding, it’s best to leave the travel details to an expert.
When setting up your reception area for your wedding, consider using tables that are different sizes and shapes. This will help your reception area stand out to your guests. You can also use various table clothes of different colors. Having a unique reception area can be very memorable for your guests.
Choose flowers for your wedding that are in season. If you choose colors that are out of season, you will pay more to have them in your bouquet. Ask the florist for a list of colors that are in season before choosing any arrangements and ask how much more out-of-season flowers will cost.
Hire only the wedding services that are absolutely necessary. You probably do not need to have a wedding planner to assist you; an organized friend or family member who wants to help can do a great job instead. Similarly, you could also hire a DJ instead of an expensive band. Think about what is important to you and go from there.
Be sure that your wedding party has plenty on non-alcoholic beverage options and plenty of food. While it’s perfectly acceptable on your wedding day to have a little more alcohol than you usually do, you don’t want every guest you invited driving home drunk. It’s dangerous and not something you want to deal with on your wedding day.
A couple that keeps these tips in mind will probably find that planning their wedding brings them closer together. Learning to plan a wedding together is a great way to build the foundation for planning a marriage and a life together. These tips will help any couple invest not just in having a romantic wedding, but also in having a successful long-term romantic relationship.
