Things To Remember When Planning A Wedding – The Early Stages

Planning a wedding can be a daunting prospect and incredibly stressful and costly. For the bride it is supposed to be the happiest day of their life; just like New Year’s Eve it can be hard to be happy with all that pressure to be so happy. “Am I having a good enough time? I’m not happy enough! I should be happier! Aaargh! How do I quantify my happiness to know that I am having a good enough time!” You see the dilemma. So, with the pressure to be happy on, you will need to plan properly. If you plan the wedding properly then maybe, just maybe, you can relax enough to enjoy yourself. Therefore take note of this guide to help you make sure you plan well during.
Start a Wedding Folder/Binder

Begin by collecting bridal and lifestyle magazines. In fact all sorts of magazines such as design, fashion and food magazines will be suitable to give you inspiration.

 

Budget

Determine the amount that you can spend, factoring in familial contributions and what you can afford.
Sort your wedding party

Once you become engaged, people will want to know who’s in!

 

Guest list

Start a database of all potential guests and keep it up to date throughout the whole planning process. Put in columns for contact details, RSVP status and gifts etc. If you want to keep the costs down, the easiest way (however brutal) is to cut the guest list down.

 

Hire a planner

You may or may not want to do this, but hiring a planner can help make the whole process easier and they will also have well established connections to wedding related businesses.

 

Book your venue and reserve the date

During this stage you will want to decide whether you are having the wedding and the reception at the same place or not. If not, remember to consider the travelling time between the two! A great wedding venue in Staffordshire is Sandon Hall which can offer you all the grandiose setting you could dream of!
Book the Officiant

It may sound silly but it is often overlooked- you will need someone to marry the two of you!

 

Engagement Party

If you’re feeling in the party mood now then throw yourself an engagement party- just remember that you will almost definitely have to invite those you invited to the engagement party to the actual wedding. Otherwise it could be awkward.
Hire the photographer and/or the videographer

Have a look online at a number of portfolios to get an idea as to what they can produce. Then speak to the ones you like in person; don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions and make sure that they will be able to get you the shots that you are after.
