Top Six Wedding Plan Essentials

Between budgeting, scheduling, and making sure that Aunt Norma isn’t sitting anywhere near Aunt Gloria, planning a wedding can be overwhelming. While your dreams of the perfect wedding are mental images of a relaxed morning getting your hair done before heading off to the ceremony, the truth is often very different. If you want your day to go ahead without a problem, you need to make sure in advance that you know exactly what you want and, more importantly, what you don’t want. Planning a wedding often feels like arranging a very complicated puzzle, but with a little forethought and the following advice, you can minimise the risk of wedding day disasters. Celebrate your love by getting the details right, and your wedding day can be the best day of your life and a springboard into your married life.


Try Everything
That pair of shoes might look incredible, but you might not feel the same way after you’ve been standing in them for an hour. Your choice of wedding cake may look epic, but if it tastes like sandpaper, then it may not be the best choice. The wedding industry is huge, and if you want your day to go according to plan, then you need to check everything no matter how small. Whether you have a year to plan or a hectic six months of wedding day planning to do, take the time to test everything. From making sure that your bra isn’t sticking into your back to ensuring that your bouquet doesn’t cause you to sneeze uncontrollably, the more you test, the more you can plan. Good planning is key to your wedding day success!

Use Professionals
Your uncle might be good with the holiday photos but that doesn’t mean that he can give you the best wedding day pics, and it’s no use using a vintage car for your wedding arrival if the driver gets stopped by police for speeding. The key to making your wedding run as smoothly as possible is by making the most of the professional services on offer. From experienced chauffeurs to Bleu Studio wedding photographers who’ll make your memories look amazing, using a professional service is the best way to minimise your stress levels.

Never forget it’s your day
You might have planned and organised every facet of the big day, but if you end up running around all day putting out social fires and dealing with problems, then you’ve missed the point of what the day is for. As well as a celebration of your relationship, it’s also about you. Yes, weddings can be stressful. But if you don’t take the time to revel in the joy of the day then you’ll regret it, and your memories of your wedding day can all too easily be tainted by negativity. 

The weather
If you're lucky enough to be getting married in a climate that rarely changes, then count your blessings. If, however, you live somewhere a little more unpredictable when it comes to the skies, then you need to mentally prepare for that. You may be picturing blue skies and warm temperatures, but have you planned for a sudden downpour or heavy wind? Check with your reception venue to make sure that they have contingencies in place should the skies open up, and if they don’t then make your own plans. Have an umbrella in the car and some towels close to hand, and you could save yourself some soggy looking wedding day photos.

Involve your other half
It can be all too easy to get swept up in grand plans and tight schedules in order to make your day perfect, but don’t forget that you’re not getting married on your own. Taking your other half’s advice and input is vital if you don’t want to become the stereotypical Bridezilla. You never know, even if you’ve been planning this wedding your whole life, you might find that your intended has some ideas as well, and may have been dreaming of the day as much as you have.

Assign tasks
You’re not doing this all by yourself, and if you are then you’re not using all of the resources available. From family members to bridesmaids, everyone is there to make sure that your day runs smoothly. Give necessary tasks to trusted people, such as transporting guests to the reception or collecting rented tuxedos before they get lost in the confusion. Delegating can reduce a massive amount of stress and it will also make those around you feel like they are helping you deal with the organising.

After all of the preparation and planning, hopefully you’ll have done enough to mean that you can relax on the day itself.
