Most women have been planning their dream weddings since they were little girls. You want that special day to be perfect, but the planning involved in making it that amazing can be stressful.
Are you wondering how to plan your perfect wedding with as little stress as possible? Continue reading below for seven essential tips that can make a world of difference.
Here are the tips
1. Create the Guest List First
Before anything else, you need to create your guest list. Knowing the approximate number of guests can help you choose the perfectly-sized venue. But remember to be picky about your guest list, because large lists require extra-large budgets.
2. Start Planning Early
You should start planning your wedding at least a year in advance. If possible, aim to begin planning eighteen months to two years in advance. Early planning ensures you can get the venue you want, and it can also save you money.
3. Enlist Assistance
Many things go into planning a wedding, so make sure you enlist assistance. You might want to recruit your best friends or family. You may even want to hire a professional wedding planner if you have the funds.
4. Get the Groom Involved
Many women fail to realize how much the groom can do when it comes to planning weddings. True, he hasn’t been planning his dream wedding since he was a baby, but there are still things he has an opinion on. Try getting him involved in the guest list, menus, budgets, and music.
5. Set a Realistic Budget
Every couple has a different budget that’s realistic for them. You never want to overspend on your wedding because it’ll start your newly married life with a lot of debt. Stick to whatever budget you set, no matter if it means narrowing down the guest list or choosing a cheaper venue or menu.
6. Get a Credit Card With Rewards
There’s always a lot of spending involved in a wedding. You can be smart and make the most of that money by signing up for a credit card with a rewards program.
An important thing to remember is that you shouldn’t spend money on the credit card you don’t already have. That’s an easy way to go into debt. But by using the credit card and then paying it off right away, you can still receive cashback or other rewards.
7. Consider All-Inclusive Packages
Getting married but don’t have a lot of time? Or don’t want to deal with the hassle of managing separate accounts for the venue, menu, entertainment, etc.?
Consider all inclusive wedding packages. These packages include everything you need for your special day, but with significantly fewer points of contact.
