Planning a wedding is not an easy task. There are so many details to take into consideration, from the location of the ceremony and reception to the type of flowers you want for your bouquet. The more time you spend planning your big day, the less stressful it will be on your special day! 

The Ring and the Ringbearer

One of the most important parts of your wedding day is your wedding ring. This jewelry not only symbolizes the bond you and your spouse-to-be share, but it will also be a constant reminder that you are loved and treasured. Remember to buy wedding rings that fit both your personality and lifestyle.

When deciding on the ring there are a lot of things to take into consideration, the symbolism, the price, the way it will be brought to you. You can click here to see some ideas. A good tip is to give a heads up to the ringbearer to practice a few times before the actual ceremony. An elegant catwalk and presentation of the rings leave a grand impression on everybody.

The Dress

Your wedding dress is one of the most important aspects of planning for your wedding; it sets the tone for what you want out of your wedding day! Whether you want an elegant, simplistic gown or a glamorous ball gown with lots of beadwork and lace, make sure your dress reflects who you are as a couple.  

When trying on wedding dresses, make sure to bring along your fiance and any close friends or family members who will be helping you make your decision. They can offer their opinions and help you find the dress that makes you look and feel like a beautiful bride on your wedding day! 

The Ceremony

Your wedding ceremony is an important part of your wedding day. This is where you and your spouse-to-be will exchange vows and begin your lives together as one. When planning your wedding ceremony, there are many things to take into consideration, such as the location, the type of service, who will be presiding over the service, and what type of music you want to be played. 

One thing to keep in mind when planning your wedding ceremony is the weather. If you are planning an outdoor wedding, make sure to have a backup plan in case of bad weather. You don’t want your guests to be standing in the rain or snow during your big day! Of course, choosing summer or autumn for your big day makes sense, as those are the most pleasant times of the year weather-wise, but don’t forget that a heatwave can be even worse than rain! 

The Reception

After the wedding ceremony, it’s time for the reception! This is where you and your guests will celebrate your marriage with food, drinks, and dancing. When planning your wedding reception, there are many things to take into consideration, such as the type of food you want to be served, the type of music you want to be played, and how you want the decorations to look. 

One important thing to remember is to not overbook your wedding reception, as that can create tense situations. Then again, hosting your reception in a too big venue is also bad as people will feel like they are few and far in between. Though a rough estimate with an error of +/- 10% of the number of guests is a good starting point.


The Food

When it comes to wedding food, there are two things to take into consideration: the type of food you want and the catering style you prefer. There are many different types of wedding foods, from Italian wedding soup to shrimp cocktail, so you’re sure to find something that will please both you and your guests. 

When it comes to catering style, there are two main types: buffet-style or served-style. Buffet-style catering is where your guests can help themselves to whatever food they want, while served-style catering is where the wait staff brings food to your guests’ tables. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, though the decision will mostly rest on the location where the reception is hosted. A formal venue, such as a restaurant, or one that has several smaller rooms, is better for served-style catering. Large, open spaces are better suited for a buffet, though servers should be present either way.

Wedding planning can be a daunting process. There are many details to consider, from the wedding dress and food at your reception to the ceremony’s location. If you’re overwhelmed with wedding decisions, don’t worry! This article has provided some helpful tips on what you should take into consideration when planning for your big day so that it reflects who you are as a couple. Don’t forget to have fun while wedding planning!
