Planning a wedding can be difficult at the best of times – with so many things to keep straight in your head and ensure you book well in advance of the day, it’s daunting to say the least. Are you planning to get married either later this year or sometime next year? If so, you aren’t alone, and in fact many people are in the throes of wedding planning at this very minute. If you’re one of them, here are some key tips to keep the planning stress to a minimum.
Make A Plan
Making and sticking to a plan is an important factor to consider if you want to ensure you manage to book and get everything sorted out for your wedding without worrying too much about stressing over the small details later. A planner can help you keep things straight, including invoices, receipts, to do lists and more. Try to begin formulating a plan around 8 months to a year in advance, especially if you’re hoping to book some of the top venues, DJs or photographers for Asian wedding photography.
Thinking ahead about what you need to do first and foremost will help you keep stress at bay. The ideal thing you will want to consider is who is invited and how many people to invite. If you’re having a huge wedding with hundreds of guests you will need to book suitable venues. Your guest list will determine the venues you select – or at least having a rough idea of the number of guests will anyway.
Consider asking a friend, relative or your bridesmaids to help you with planning certain aspects of the wedding. Of course it’s a day special to you and your partner, but for the girly bits, you can definitely ask your friends to help – such as with the hen do! If your partner can’t accompany you to viewings or other meetings, you can get a friend to come with. Also you can consider hiring a wedding planner – the ultimate stress reliever, allowing you to just make decisions while they do the majority of legwork.
Take Days Off
Wedding planning can be exhausting, so if you and your spouse are doing it all alone, consider taking days off every week from planning to just enjoy the run up to the wedding, go out for dinner, to the cinema and forget about dates, rings, flowers and tuxedos for awhile.
At the end of the day, wedding planning is a hugely stressful task, but it doesn’t have to be. Hopefully these tips have helped you greatly in making a good plan to tackle the creation of the biggest event of your life so far! Good luck!
