Are you recently engaged?
If so, we want to congratulate wholeheartedly, and we hope your wedding day is a tremendous success. That said, now the real fun begins because it is time to start planning your wedding. Your big day might still be a couple of years away, but there are things you need to do right now. Essentially, planning for a wedding is like preparing the biggest party of your life. We bet you are wondering where to even begin. Don’t worry; we’ve got the answer.
Save The Date
Your first step is to pick a date for your wedding. This might not be an easy choice, and you’ll have to decide between the different seasons. As well as this, you’ll need to choose whether you want your wedding a weekday or a weekend. Obviously, a weekend would be more preferable. However, if you book your wedding on a weekday, you might be more likely to get your dream venue and date.
Deciding between the seasons is a tricky one. You might be thinking about a Christmas wedding which on paper, does sound like a fantastic choice. Until you realise that to get a Christmas wedding, it doesn’t matter what venue you choose, you need to book well in advance. You’re also probably interested in a Christmas wedding because you want snow. Again, it sounds great, but you can get a guarantee from the weather. Unless, you are getting married in Canada. This is your only option to ensure a white wedding. Pick somewhere to get married where it always snows.
Summer is, of course, the other popular choice. There are plenty of weddings that take place in the middle of the summer season. But remember, just because you get married in summer, doesn’t mean you’ll get away with a day without rain. Particularly, if you’re getting wed in the UK.
It might seem like we’ve covered most of the wedding plans but actually, we haven’t. There’s plenty more you need to think about from hiring the DJ for the reception to writing your vows. It’s one of the reasons why people often spend one or two years planning a wedding. You might think it’s overkill, but you’ll be surprised how long it takes to get everything in order. Technically, you could plan a wedding in two months. But only if you’re getting married at the town hall with a reception in your backyard.
