Planning a wedding should be one the happiest times of your life. You got the man, the ring, and now you are ready to start your lives together. Do not let the planning overwhelm you. Instead, take a breath, get a notepad, and get ready to say I do.
Before you set a specific date you need to list your wedding party, make out your guest list, and know your budget. The attendance number is important when you are choosing your venue and your caterer. You do not want to be the girl who did not have enough seats for everyone at her ceremony or enough food at the reception.
Now, you can begin looking at ceremony and reception venues. Keep in mind how far your guest will have to travel between these two when making a final decision. You may also want to ask if they provide tables, chairs, linens, or any serving dishes. If not, you will need to seek out a party rental store for these items. Keep in mind that some venues have approved lists and will only allow you to bring in certain caterers, florists, or musicians that are on their list. Once you find a place you love check out what dates and times are available.
You are moving right along. Now you have your guy, your girls, your guest list, your venue, Scottsdale wedding Photographers and a date. It is time to go get that dress. For this task it is sometimes better to only take those closest with you. Everyone has an opinion and the only opinion that matters on this day is yours.
You are well on your way to one of the most important days of your life. You still need to visit with the caterer, florist, and musicians. Before your appointment with them you should have an idea of what you are looking for. Once you are there they will be able to work off your ideas or theme. The florist will need to know any colors that you are incorporating into your special day and how many tables need decorating. It is always a good idea to bring pictures of the spaces to any appointments. This gives everyone a clear image of what you are working with.
Now it is time to wind down and eat cake. Wear some loose fitting pants and enjoy taste testing some of the most decadent cakes you have ever seen. Do not forget the milk.
Planning your big day doesn’t have to be a nightmare if you do a little pre-planning and get your numbers in place. Break big tasks into smaller ones and do not be afraid to ask for help. Your hard work will soon pay off. You will be walking down the aisle and dancing the night away with the love of your life.
