So from engagement through to the big day itself here are some of the top wedding tips to help you through the process.
Let’s talk about getting engaged for a moment
Indulge me a little, having just been proposed to I am feeling on cloud nine. So if you are hoping that your partner will pop the question you might be wondering how to go about it. A few tips would be to start talking about the future and enter weddings into your conversation every now and again. Often it’s just making sure you are both wanting the same thing that can set the wheels in motion for your future wedding. Talking about getting engaged isn’t even a taboo subject if you have been together a while. Perhaps you already own a house together and have dogs or children. The beauty of planning your engagement together means you can go shopping for yellow gold diamond engagement rings or something unique like a different gemstone. Choosing your own engagement ring might be the dream for you.
Don’t get swamped with planning
A marriage and a wedding are two different things in reality. Getting married means making a commitment to be together through sickness and in health, for better or for worse. A wedding is the event itself in which you celebrate this very act. So if you keep things simple, like I am planning on doing, or go for something more elaborate and big then make sure the wedding planning doesn’t overwhelm you. It’s easy to step on the rollercoaster of wedding plans and not be able to get off, while you watch money mount up and cost escalating. The biggest tip is to ensure you get yourself a planner and no your budget and wedding size before you begin, it helps to be able to keep yourself in check.
Make the important decisions together
Let’s be honest here, the man in your life might not want to try every piece of cake or look at endless color samples of a different shade of blue or pink, but he might want to know about the venue or have a say on the food. You know your partner better than anyone, so involve him in what he will be interested in, and don’t both him with the little details. Wedding planning can be stressful without it causing unnecessary arguments between one another.
Don’t let the emotion of the big day take over
Finally, try and make sure you don’t let the emotion of your big day take over. Instead, don’t feel overwhelmed by the at but embrace the wedding day and enjoy yourself. It’s going to be one of the best days of your life.
I hope these important tips help you with your wedding planning.
