Be Prepared psychologically

A common problem most brides to be and sometimes even the grooms to be is, they find it impossible to digest the fact that everything will not go as how he/she wants it to be. Marriage is a contract based on trust and love which in reality comprises of much sacrifice and compromise from both partners equally. Planning or carrying out the wedding celebration is no different. Always make sure to discuss with your better half all matters concerned and come to conclusions together. Keep in mind that all the things are not going to go the way it was planned. Be rational to avoid any hysterical outbreaks which is every common. One couple disclosed that their engagement party invitations from Australia had not been printed even two weeks before the engagement date because they couldn’t agree on the same design and kept making alterations until they found themselves a tad bit too late.

Budget

Something that is very often overlooked is the budget. Most draw up a budget but don’t stick to it while other’s try to keep a mental track of a budget. A budget is the most important factor in planning a wedding and sticking to it is even more important. Don’t make excuses! Draw up a budget, make it as realistic as possible. To get prices of the products try researching online or call up the vendors for a price. Prioritize your expenses so that you don’t miss out on anything important. Decide ahead from top to bottom how you are going to have your wedding. Are you going to have a rustic country wedding with unique country wedding invitations sent out? Or are you going to opt for a modern wedding with just a few guests? Are you sponsoring the bridesmaids’ clothes? Plan on all the things, from the clothes to the décor to the venue to the food to everything! And budget them!

This is another important factor for a successful wedding. Keep track of all your to do’s. Create a list with a time limit and keep ticking them off once they are completed.

You should also keep track of salon appointments and other appointments in relation to your wedding.

Guest List

Decide on your guest list based on who you and your partner truly want to be there. Don’t give in to the pressure of who might think what. Don’t be afraid to cut off people your guest list if it seems too unaffordable. After all a wedding is an intimate affair and you both have every right to decide who should or should not be there. Money is also a very deciding factor here, you don’t want to afford an unaffordable marriage that leaves the two of you sky deep in loans. Rather spend the extra money on a romantic honeymoon.These tips from the newly married couples, is truly an insight to planning the perfect wedding.
