Being Practical in wedding preparation will help you create the dream wedding that you want-without going broke in the process. At the end of the day, what really matters on your wedding day, is not so much how it looked as how it felt.
ASK FOR HELP:
If you have willing family and friends, assign decision making too. Yes you read it right, you can put your family and friends to work.
Your friends and family are not only thrilled that you’re getting married, but also excited that they might get to be involved and help out on your wedding preparation. This means your friends may help setting up meeting with the florist or that your sister can design set up reception stage or make sweets & cupcakes and would be thrilled to put together your dessert table as a wedding gift.
DO NOT BE AFRAID TO ASK:
Don’t hesitate to ask questions from friends along every step of the way. Friends who got married recently are the best people to ask, they can provide good insights specially that they experienced it all. Looking for someone to do a favor? Just ask — it won’t hurt.
FILTER YOUR GUEST LIST:
Trimming down your guest list, will make the entire event more manageable. Small and intimate weddings are popular these days. If you’re really tight on cash, consider making a “close friends and family” policy.
MAKE IT SIMPLE:
Cut down on the number of vendors if possible. If the reception hall includes tables and chairs, go for it, it will cut down your rental budget. Limit the number of other vendors that are not that necessary, like hiring a Photo and Video team instead of hiring different supplier. If the caterer does liquor, go them up.
BOOK WEDDING SUPPLIERS EARLY:
Ideally, your wedding suppliers should be booked early, if you are getting married during the wedding season. By doing this, you can possibly get discounted rates.
TRY AND EXPERIMENT:
There are many options out there, you just need to explore. From wedding fairs to online blogs about wedding suppliers, finding the right wedding package plan for your wedding is not only a helpful first step, it’s an important one.
There’s just so much to see, try on, and experiment with!
