Planning A Wedding!

Planning a wedding is not an easy thing, and there are several details to look into concerning the arrangement. Some of the details include planning the budget, deciding on the perfect location for the wedding (whether it is an indoor or an outdoor venue), preparing the guest list, choosing the suppliers for the wedding. Other aspects include the catering contract which consists of the food and beverages served at the reception, the décor and flower arrangements, and the entertainment. Planning a wedding takes a lot of work, and it is something that has to be done meticulously.

What To Remember When Planning A Wedding

Moreover, planning a big occasion like a wedding invariably involves a lot of money and time. Every event has to be prepared from a budget. There are several things that you have to keep in mind, and sometimes it can be overwhelming. There are many questions that you have to look into when planning a wedding:

Mr. Samson of www.kiyoh.in spoke to us and has given the below points which they gather from the customer before they start planning for a wedding event.

 Whether you are looking for a casual wedding or a fancy one.

 Whether u have a theme for the wedding – is it vintage, romantic, classic, rustic or glam?

 How many guests would you want to invite – is it a small wedding with only close family and friends or is it a big one where you'll invite almost everyone you know?

 Is the venue for the wedding outdoors on a beachside, or indoors? Would it be where you are living right now or would it be at a dream destination somewhere else?

A wedding is not just about the bride and the groom and deciding on the perfect location, but it is much more than that. There are several things to look into such as the number of guests, the wedding invitations, the food, the arrangement for food, the décor, and the floral arrangement, the centerpiece, etc. It is best to have a checklist for the wedding so that you are overwhelmed with the details that you have to take care of. Other things that you have to look for are the functional itinerary, like the tables, the chairs, the flatware, the crockery, and the china, as well as the lighting, it would be a good idea to have a seating chart so you can decide how your guests will be seated and the escort cards so that there is no confusion.

    Estelle, the article is a perfect summary of what it takes to plan a wedding. It required detailed organisation on small and big decisions. Further stress on financial limits could have been made because it is the budget that affects every choice considered during the planning.

  2. Bindhu says:

    Riverday picks up an excellent issue – bridal makeup has to be complementary to the attire. What could also have been included is that many bridal packages now offer trial runs so that the D-Day makeup has no hiccups and issues.

  3. Ishu says:

    Great catch on incorporating checklists, Estelle’s team. The one thing that saved me a lot of sweat is comprehensive lists on every task that needed to be done prior to my wedding. The idea is to pen-down even the smallest thing like buying hangover kits and placing them in guestrooms.

    For Indian weddings, seating charts are not really functional. So, instead of waiting time in creating one and asking invitees to stick to it. It is better to allocate the time and energy into something else such as building the perfect menu for every meal that is taken during the festivities.

    Hire a planner that’s the only important tip the piece skipped. Weddings are tedious organisational chaos. As the bride or the groom, your task is to enjoy, without a great wedding planner it is rarely possible.

    We looked for accommodation for our guests for a wedding. It was really difficult to find the right accommodation as it was during peak days. We should have booked for the accommodation early as mentioned above so that everything would have gone smooth. .
