MY IDEAL WEDDING, TIPS FOR BRIDES AND GROOMS TO BE

Yes! Yes! I finally said, “Yes! This is the start of a wonderful journey of  life as a couple, I have always wanted a loud wedding and yes I made him fall in love with the idea and he is into it now! We want to make our ideal wedding very special and  as memorable as possible.
Prior to that much-awaited big day, I know that we have  so many decisions to make and wedding-related tasks to complete.

Preparing for my ideal wedding need not be stressful, on the other hand, it should be a fun and exciting experience.  I would advise that every couple should start off by putting together a wedding timetable and most importantly, establish a budget, stick to it, do not deviate. This tip is often neglected when planning a wedding. It is essential to get  your budget in order before making financial decisions. A short list of wedding-related tasks as well as a rough estimate of things expected to be done should be kept handy. It is actually a guideline to keep you organized and help you think of all the matters that you must take into consideration in the course of planning your big day.

Planning a wedding is not an easy task though, but try as much as possible to ask questions and check out a trusted website that specializes in wedding planning. At this amazing and crazy time in my  life,  I will take a minute to step back, relax and organize my thoughts.

To make my ideal wedding a grand celebration, here are a number of things to be considered. Let us begin the wedding preparation from :

Wedding Gown:  Hellooo, my wedding gown has to be gorgeous, I can't joke with it. You all know that wedding gown often  plays an important role in a wedding ceremony. Every bride wants to look her best on her special wedding day. Choosing the right wedding dress can be a fantasy for you. The most stressful part of finding your bridal gown is to locate a good shop or  having to go through thousands of  bridal websites to pick a design then ensure it fits perfectly. There are a number of stores  that have the white traditional bridal gown but your gown can be of any color and pattern, it all depends on your preference. For my wedding I still prefer the traditional white wedding gown. The most important thing is to get a wedding gown that suits you,  makes you happy and gorgeous on your big day.

Wedding Hall: Wedding hall location is a very important factor in wedding ceremony. If you are planning for  a wedding in summer, winter or autumn, make sure the wedding hall or outdoor  suits the weather in the season. Your guest are as important  as your wedding ceremony. Your guest should be very comfortable. Don't forget that the hall should be tastefully decorated with the colours of the day or colours of choice. Personally, I prefer the outdoor wedding for the church activities.


Wedding Reception:  wedding reception space should be colourfully decorated, and filled with love, you can have a video of your pre-wedding photo rolling in the hall.  if you love flowers, get a professional florist and get in touch with event decorators. Wedding reception should not be such a headache, if you have done adequate planning and preparation, you will have everything under control. You need to decide your menu then know the number of guest expected to honor your invite.

Wedding cake: my wedding cake has to taste and look gorgeous, with lots of floral decoration. The  Cutting of wedding cake is one of the highlights of any  wedding ceremony where both bride and groom celebrate their happiness in the presence of family friends and guest. Many cake shops prepare wedding cake according to your choice of color, flavors, flowers, design and many more, just tell them what you want. However, there is no limit when it comes to decorating a wedding cake.

Wedding DJ: Choosing wedding DJ can be quite a challenge. First decide on what type of music you want to play during your wedding ceremony. I love good music and I would want to settle and select my favorite wedding song that would be played back to back. Great music with great sound system will help make your wedding a successful one. Remember you will need music for every moment. For instance, the interlude, prelude music, the processional, the recessional, first dance,  last dance, mother/son dance, cake cutting, bouquet toss, dance music and any other special song you wish to have played. It's a huge task so make the best pick. music is usually the life of a party.


Photography:  for such a memorable event, you need to get the services of a professional photographer, who  will be able to take pictures of you and your spouse from all angles. I know you want in years to come to be able to watch this memories and be glad, all went well.

Invitation Cards: most times, couples forget this till the last minute due to lack of planning, you shouldn't take your guest unaware. Send invite to them once your date has been fixed and follow through to know who will be attending.

These are not the only steps to planning a wedding, but these are very important aspects of planning that will help you keep your sanity and focus on the reason for this whole crazy thing called love.

Wedding is a commitment, the key to timely  planning is to give yourself plenty of time to do things in order. Keep lists and stay ahead of the game and your wedding will be what you have always imagined and you will have the added sense of accomplishment.
