So, you got engaged and now you are starting to feel the all the excitement of the thought of all the details involved in planning a wedding. Relax, take a breath, prepare a wedding planning checklist and you are good to go. This article will help you determine the priorities when it comes to planning a wedding.
Of course, the biggest priority to sort out is your wedding dress. There are endless possibilities but you should try to fit into your budget. With soooo many styles to choose from, the decision won’t be easy. The best rule to follow is, find something you feel comfortable in and which will reflect your personality. If you are a free spirit who loves boho and hippie details, go for a simple white lacy dress you can spice up with a unique and memorable necklace, and if you do not like the casual white, why not embrace a vibrantly coloured dress which will serve as a statement of your unique style. On the other hand, if you love following trends, go for pale violet dress which is one of the latest picks for brides.
Depending on your favourite music style, you can either opt for a live band or a DJ. You definitely need to go over the playlist and make sure that everything is to your liking, so as to avoid unpleasant moments. What is more, you can bring more fun to your wedding by choosing a themed party reflecting a certain music era. The possibilities are endless. Just try to book your music at least a few months before as they tend to be fully booked.
Think about the food you would like to have served at your wedding. Most wedding venues have their own catering so you will have nothing to worry about. Still, if you are DIY-ing it, you will have to carefully pick the style of food that goes well with your venue and the overall theme. Let it you’re your guests about you and what you are like. Also, don’t forget about your vegetarian or vegan guests, because you don’t want them feeling left out.
