Essential Wedding Day Arrangements
Posted By: 
Friday, June 29, 2018

Marriage is usually a once in a lifetime event. It is therefore quite important to pour in extensive efforts so that at the end of the day, each and every aspect is picture perfect. This is why you should start planning your wedding well ahead of time. An ideal time is to start a few months before the event dates. Some make it a year.

One reason for this is as the time draws near, there is a lot going on all at once. Your mind becomes over occupied and in such cases, you tend to miss out important things. Missing something important on your wedding could also mean spoiling your day for both yourself and your better half.

It is advisable to make a notebook and use it as your wedding planner. Make checklists of things you need to buy, and arrangements that you need on the day. Also, choose a separate page to make a list of your guests, because there is nothing more regretful than missing an important guest.

Pre-Wedding

Make a shopping list. Your wedding dresses and the accessories to go with them, come first. Choose a beautiful ring and anything else you might want to gift to your spouse. If you do not like surprises, shop together.

Invest time in designing the invitations. Other than the wedding day, what else people remember about your wedding is the invitation.

The Wedding Day

It is all about that one day. After all, there are tiny details that people remember for years. Make a list of essentials that you want on the wedding and a checklist for the last moment. Before you do that, do a quick budget analysis. This will help you determine the scope of the event and help decide the amount do you afford to spend on each detail.

Some essentials that you might prefer are given below.

Pictures and Videos

Once it has happened, the moment is gone forever, unless someone captured it. Take your time and choose a photographer based on their portfolio and the rates if they suit you. If your budget allows you, hiring a videographer would be a plus.

Music

Choose a good DJ well before time, because as the time comes near, there will not be many options left. A bad musical choice could mean a spoiled evening. Also, keep in mind that by booking sooner you might get to pay less, since the rates might be higher during the wedding season.

Flowers

Flowers add to the beauty of the venue and add essence to ambiance. A good florist would make the aisle look pretty and make the evening more romantic for you.

Don’t Forget the Cake

A beautiful cake would add more color to your ceremony. So do not forget to hire a good baker while you plan the wedding.

Divert the Stress

It is your big day, so you would prefer to tune out all sorts of worries and try to stay as calm as you can. Try to divert the stress as much as possible. A good way to do that is to hire a good caterer for your wedding. They will take care of most of the planning part while you relax and celebrate with your guests.
