Planning a Wedding! 21st Century Planning Guide!

Way to go! You’re engaged. Now it’s time to start thinking about the big day. This planning can cause a lot of stress and excitement. The key to controlling the stress is planning. Get an idea of what you want your big day to look like and go from there. You can buy wedding planners that are very helpful. They vary with different pages of recommendations and guides, so make sure to do your research before you purchase one. Some people have simple weddings and don’t want to have a really detailed planner, while others have a more complicated or intricate wedding and need all of those details. You have time to figure that out and select one, while still getting a few things completed and accomplished for that big day. Here are a few things you can work towards while you’re waiting for the in-depth details.

Set the Date!


This is either, really easy for couples or really hard. Some people know exactly what season they want to get married. While some couples may crave a summer wedding, others may see beautiful fall colors in the back drop. Coming to this conclusion may be hard so here are some tips to think about. Think about temperature: remember that some states can be very humid. This can cause the brides hair to go frizzy or make up to blotch up and run. If you’re worried about this, then plan a wedding for either a different season or have the wedding in the evening because temperatures generally drop and the heat won’t be so bad. If you live in a state that gets a lot of rain, plan on an indoor wedding in order to avoid a wedding disaster. Don’t let all of this stress you out. It may sound like a lot, but it is just one decision.

Pick That Location!

Like mention earlier, this is just one decision so don’t let these words stress you. Picking a location can be one of the biggest decisions. It’s what you’ll see in the back of your photos and the mental pictures you’ll be taking while saying “I do.” If you’re the outdoorsy type, then think of these things: weather, time of day and bugs! If you’re an indoor couple think about: lighting, photography and possible seating. Those three things are what you should focus on when selecting any location, whether indoor or out. All the other things that you will worry about while choosing a location will fall into place so don’t go stressing!

Invitation List!

While one couple may want a small quaint wedding, others may want to go all out and invite as many people as they can. If you’re having an outdoor wedding, you may have the ability to invite more people because you’re not confined by walls and other objects. If you’re having an indoor wedding you have to make sure that you don’t crunch too many people in a small place. While both options have great potential, most couple know almost immediately what they want. If you’re not one of those couples, then please just take your time. It’s your big day! You’ll get there.

Congratulations on the big day. Just take your time and plan what you see in your mind. Everything else will fall into place before your very eyes. If you end up having a rough wedding day, remember that it’s just one day. The rest of your lives together is what truly matters. Laugh through the disasters and be appreciative of the things that go swimmingly!
