When you are planning your wedding, every detail is important and should be taken seriously. Every small detail counts, from the food to the design, to the dresses and suit used. In addition, a wedding is a day two people promise to stay by each other’s side through thick and thin. Friends and relatives are expected to be present on the occasion. With a large number of guests, it requires a lot of planning.
This event only happens only once for a lot of people, that is why it is important to make it memorable and special. Planning a wedding takes a long time with a lot of things being considered. Here are the five most important things to consider when planning a wedding event.
1. A Memorable Reception
Weddings are celebrated for two people who finally decide to tie the knot and live as partners. Because of this, each side of their families will surely show up to witness them say their vows. This is an event that is worthy for a celebration and, therefore, a feast.
No two families are the same, and that includes each family’s food preference. In order to cater to the needs of each family, thorough planning of what’s going to be on the menu, as well as determining the funds to be used, are needed.
Photography is also one of the most important decisions you make for the wedding. Even before the big day comes, photography already plays an important role in prenup shoots. But what makes photography really important on wedding occasions is that it captures an experience that can only happen once. These photos will be the ones you’ll be showing your kids when they ask about your love story in the future, so you would want to make things as memorable and fun as possible.
Depending on the theme and the location of your wedding, different factors can affect the photography service. In addition, there is also a lot of difference in wedding services between states. Someone offering wedding photography in Dallas-Fort Worth will have a much different style compared to a wedding photographer in New York. To ensure that important moments are captured perfectly, start looking for a photography service early so you will have more choices available. Don’t be afraid to talk to the photographer and tell them exactly what you want. Ask to see some of their work from other weddings.
3. Choose a Theme and Make It Work
Just like other traditions, the wedding has evolved in the past few years. People are more open to express themselves and their interests on their wedding day. Do you love the sea? Ocean-themed weddings are now available. There are even pet-inspired weddings for couples who love pets.
Although weddings can be done with or without a theme, having a theme will help in unifying the overall aesthetics of the occasion. You and your partner must prepare for the theme early, because the decorations, dresses, suits, and even the food will be based on the wedding theme.
4. Put More Thoughts On The Date
Although the wedding date is for the couple to choose from, they also need to put more thought on picking the date of their wedding. Not everyone can attend your wedding, but more people will be able to if you asked them for their free times. Be ready for rejections because there really are circumstances that prevent others from seeing your wedding.
In addition, try to avoid setting up the date during a very popular event such as the Super Bowl. These events will clog the traffic which gives bad experiences for your guests. You don’t want your guests to remember the massive inconveniences instead of the day of your wedding.
5. Expect the worst
For some reason, a lot of wedding plans don’t usually work as intended. There will always be a probability that things will go wrong during the wedding. Because of this, it is important to always be prepared for worst case scenarios. In case your partner cannot help you with some of the preparations for the wedding, the option for event organizers will be a lifesaver. Problems such as shortage of fork and spoons, shortage of food, etc., will be handled by the event coordinator.
So even though there is a lot to plan and consider, your wedding is special to you and your partner and should be the most wonderful day of your life. Congratulations!
