A successful wedding is a well-planned wedding. We know it not only because it’s a matter of fact, but also because we’ve been in the bridal business long enough to understand what it really takes to plan a perfect celebration. Starting early is great but having a smart wedding planning checklist to follow is the only way to guarantee a flawless wedding. Here’s our top advice to you.
1- Determine your budget
This is your starting point. Work out how much you can spend on your wedding day and base your planning on that number – more or less. We all know numbers change along the way.
2- Set your guest list
If you’re on a budget, you have to keep your head count low. If not, it’s a matter of taste. Either way, you’ll have to go through that “arduous” task of filtering your wedding guests.
3- Hire a wedding planner – or not.
That’s totally up to you. Some couples love to plan their own big day but if you’re not the detail-oriented type, and if your budget allows, go for the wedding planner. Their job is to save your day.
4- Choose your theme
Classic, vintage, rustic, or wild, your wedding’s got to have a theme. Choose one that reflects you and your partner’s personalities and build your wedding around it.
5- Select your venue
Venue and theme come hand in hand. Choose a location where you see yourself celebrating the way you’ve always wanted.
6- Choose your suppliers
These are the people that will make your night happen: the caterer, the DJ, the photographer, the videographer, the florist, and the musicians. Choose them wisely and pretty much in advance!
7- Think overall decoration
Do your research and gather inspiration to create your own wedding mood board.
8- Start shopping for your wedding dress
Even if you know the style of the wedding dress you want, finding the perfect bridal gown comes after many trials and errors. Esposa wedding bridal boutique offers a wide international selection of bridal dresses to help you find “the one”.
9- Work on your wedding invite
Whether it’s standard or personalized, make sure you schedule designing and printing your wedding invites to distribute them one month ahead of the wedding.
10- Help your bridesmaid choose her dress
Sit with your bridesmaid and discuss color palette, style, and options that would make you and her happy. For faster results, check Esposa’s selection of bridesmaids’ dresses that guarantees a gown for every taste.
