Everyone wants to have the perfect wedding but the perfect wedding never comes without one or two glitches along the way that need to be smoothed and ironed out. The important thing to remember is to stay calm, keep your cool, and stick with your plans. Ultimately it's the bride and groom's day and the choices that they've made should be honored above the choices of others.
As you get ready to start planning your wedding, decide exactly what you want. Once you make certain choices, they will be hard to change. Sit down with your fiance and discuss your plans. Most likely you'll have budget constraints, so you need to know what you absolutely must have and what you'd be willing to let go.
Your first decision will be the wedding date. If the ceremony will take place in a church or some other heavily used building, confirm that the date is available. If it isn't you'll have to settle on another, so it's a good plan to have several possibilities when you are ready to book.
Things add up fast, so carefully plan your budget. Common sense will come in handy when you make your choices. Concentrate on good ways to keep the costs down. For example, if you want to hire a Orchestra for Garba and spin music at the reception, check more than one source. You may be able to find a better deal.
When you start buying the things that you need for your wedding use a list that includes all costs and items that you need and make sure that you stick to it. Contact merchants in your area that offer the services that you need and see if you can negotiate a better price. After all, it never hurts to try.
Hiring a photographer is one of the biggest decisions in any wedding plan. Your wedding photos will capture your memories and be with you all of your lives. Visit several photographers and look at a number of sample photos. You may have some special pictures and you'll want to know before the wedding that this photographer can shoot them.
The next important issue you want to decide on is the number of people you want to invite to your wedding function. Be realistic and remain within your budget while counting heads for sending the invite. If your budget is tight then there is no point in having a huge guest list, so you will have to cut down on some names and limit only to those close family members and friends who are important to you.
After you have your headcount, you'll need to find a caterer that you can afford and who will be able to prepare the foods that you plan to serve. Remember that there is more to choosing a caterer than cost alone.
With so many things to think about when it comes to planning your wedding it's easy to overlook something. Ask your bridesmaid or a member of your family to help you with the planning so that nothing is left out. Sometimes it helps to have an extra person to help you make some of the more confusing decisions, such as what type of music to play at the reception.
No matter what the planning of your wedding brings it's important to have fun and enjoy the planning of one of the most special days in your life.
