Our wedding day is one thing that most of us dream about from a young age. Daydreaming of one day uttering those two promising words “I do” with our significant other is one thing, and the real deal is even more magical.
This article contains five ways to ensure that your long anticipated wedding day fulfills your childhood dreams!
1. Shop for an engagement ring together
A new trend that seems to be occuring more and more frequently among modern couples is picking out and purchasing their engagement rings together. Whether you plan a day date to the jewelry store or cozy up and search for your perfect ring online off a site like Blue Nile, make it a fun experience! The search not only turns into a memorable moment for both of you, but also gives you the opportunity to choose the ring you’ve always wanted!
2. Decide on your overall vision/colors
When it comes to planning a wedding, start simple: decide on the theme and colors scheme you want your special day to showcase. Do you like a traditional feel? Romantic? Whimsical? Vintage? No matter your preference, choosing a theme that best suits you and your partner’s personalities is the way to go. Once you have a concise vision for the theme and colors, designing your invitations, choosing décor and selecting personal touches will be that much easier.
3. Book venues well in advance
Finding the perfect venue to fit your vision is probably one of the most difficult tasks while planning a wedding. It is important to choose your venue well in advance to give you and your partner enough time to plan the rest of the details! Be sure to select a venue that reflects you and your fiance’s relationship. Whether it’s a formal affair in a ballroom, low key beside a flower garden outside, in a vineyard or beachside, look for an environment that speaks to both your personal styles.
It is important not to skimp when it comes to your wedding entertainment. After all, this is what gets the party going! Entertainment is one thing that brings people together on the dance floor and creates memories that everyone will think fondly of long after the celebration is over. Be sure to book a band or DJ and any other fun activities that will keep your guests occupied throughout the night!
5. Hire help
Yes, you may have poured your heart and soul into picking out every little detail for your special day, and letting someone else take charge sounds impossible. But handing everything off to a wedding coordinator when the big day arrives will allow you to not only have a piece of mind, but also give you the chance to enjoy your special day with your friends and family
