With your recent engagement, the task of planning your big day that lies ahead may seem overwhelming. After all, it is your wedding and anything ordinary won’t work. With a multitude of questions haunting you regarding all the minute details, what you need to remember is that you just cannot let all the tension and stress get the best of you.

Wedding planning is not just about the right venue and the appropriate decorations, there is more to it. Wedding preparations are more about all those little things that make a big difference and have the potential to turn a simple event into something of an extravaganza.

Your wedding ceremony is probably going to be the biggest party you and your partner are going to put together. Just make sure that you and your sweetheart are on the same page and you are all set to go. A few tips that will come in handy specifically endeavoured for the newly engaged as they plan their wedding are as follows:

Four Essentials for a Fairy Tale Wedding:

The Inevitable Engagement Party

Before you move ahead with the arrangements, enjoy the fact that you are engaged and this calls for an engagement party. Seek your friends’ help to arrange a fete to announce the news to your family and friends. It does not necessarily have to be something big and extravagant, just a preamble to all the frolic fun and festivity that your wedding will offer.

Determine the Budget

Financial concerns hold primary importance when it comes to wedding planning. Squandering money is not going to get you anywhere. The real charm is about arranging a wedding with expenses that do not give you nightmares for months to come. Prioritizing is the key. Separate the ‘must have’s’ from ‘nice to have’s’. Decide on a reasonable amount as a wedding is all about pulling off all the arrangements gracefully without leaving a hole in your pocket.

Decide On a Theme

If you think wedding arrangements are just about nice food and an enchanting wedding dress, think again. An impressive theme can make your wedding look like a scene straight out of some Hollywood movie. Whether your choice of theme is devilishly decadent or solely sophisticated, make sure that all your decorations go with it.

Wedding Venue

While some of you may want the same conservative church wedding, others may want to experiment with modern museums, graceful green backdrops or the more usual formal ballrooms. Since your wedding is not something that happens every other day, make sure that it turns out into a day that you will fondly remember for years to come.

With all the above suggestions, we hope that your wedding planning goes smoothly as you go through the transition from ‘engaged’ to ‘married’. Turning all your wedding ideas into a reality, it is time to garner some lasting memories for yourself and your guests.
