Your wedding is a day that you will remember for the rest of your life. Many young women have been looking forward to their wedding day since they were little girls. While there is no doubt that your wedding will be a magical day, it will require a lot of preparation. Today we'd like to share a few tips that will help make the preparation for your wedding day less stressful!
Start Preparing Early!
If you are newly engaged and have not yet picked a date for your wedding, be sure that you give yourself plenty of time to prepare! This may mean pushing your wedding a bit further into the future than you may have originally planned, but you will thank yourself later!
The amount of time you give yourself to prepare for your wedding will also depend on if you plan to do the bulk of the work yourself or hire someone to help you. A wedding planner can take a lot of the stress off of you during the preparation stages of the wedding.
While a wedding planner can save you a lot of time, they also add to the total cost of your wedding. If you are working on a small budget, it may be best to take care of the planning aspect yourself. If you choose to do this, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to plan, or start planning right after you get engaged!
Pick the Dress
If you are the type of person that has been saving images of wedding dresses online for months (or even years) you may have an idea of what kind of wedding dress you are looking for. If this is the case, this can speed up the process of picking out a dress.
Even if you think you have a good idea of the dress you want, you'll still want to allow some time to search for a dress that you like and fits well in your price range. Something else you'll want to consider is that most dresses require some sort of alternation, whether it be the length or making small changes to the dress itself. These alterations can take a while, so the sooner you pick out the dress, the sooner alterations can begin!
Sewport CEO Boris Hodakel mentioned that you should find clothing manufacturers for your wedding sooner rather than later. This is especially the case if you are looking to get custom pieces made for your wedding!
Think about food
Food is another very important part of your special day that will require quite a bit of planning. If you are on a budget, food is often dependent on the number of guests you expect to have at your wedding. If you are expecting to have a big wedding, it may be best to opt for a buffet-style dinner. This option allows your guests to have a variety of choices!
Register for Gifts!
This may be the last thing you are thinking about, but it should be high on your priority list! If you are moving into a new house together, you can load your list up with things for your new house. Putting the list together in advance will allow you to take time to think about each item carefully that you choose to put on the list instead of being in a rush to make a registry when someone tells you they need to know what wedding gift to get you!
Overall, it is best to pre-plan your wedding as much as possible. For some people, this will look like purchasing a wedding planner notebook the day after you get engaged and start planning right then. For others, it may look like investing in a wedding planner to make the day less stressful! Regardless of how you choose to plan your wedding, you'll want to be sure you start by picking out the attire that you will be wearing for your wedding, especially if it is custom!
