“Falling in love was the easy part; planning a wedding – yikes!”— Niecy Nash
Finding Your Perfect Venue
You and your partner need to talk it out to know your preferred venue for the wedding. If you plan to take your vows in a traditional church, choose a church that is within your locality. It could be either near your or your partner’s parent’s home area. If you plan to take your wedding outside, such as a garden or beach wedding, you need to scan a proper venue that is both affordable and beautiful.
Choosing Your Vendors
After securing the venue, the next thing you should take into consideration is the right vendors to cater to those in attendance. These vendors range from:
Photographers and Videographers
These are responsible for capturing everything that takes place on this important day. You should book a reservation in advance, as it is usually cheaper. Do some research or ask for recommendations about the best photographers and videographers around your area. Furthermore, you should consider the type of equipment they use.
You also need to take into consideration the musical attribute of your wedding. If you have a relative who is great at singing or playing instruments, this should not be much of a problem for you. However, if you don’t, then you need to canvass for available musicians around your area. Make a market research about this.Do you want a DJ or a live band? Most of the times, DJs charge less than live bands, but it’s not always the case.
Flowers and Decor
Flowers and decoration arrangement are also necessary. You can search over the Internet for good floral arrangement. Also, see if you can get fresh flowers and find someone to arrange them for you. You can even hire a florist to do it for you.
You should seek to know how dishes will taste and look and how flexible the caterer is with menus and prices. Don’t be afraid to bargain; you can cut costs by limiting the number and kinds of hors d’oeuvres served at the reception.
Choosing Your Bridesmaids
You should follow this guideline when choosing and naming your bridesmaids:
- Explain to prospective bridesmaids what their roles are and what they entail.
- Let them know that they will have to commit a certain amount of time and energy.
- Choose as many or as few bridesmaids as you want.
- Give your closest friend or relative the maid of honor position.
- Include a female relative of your groom in your bevy of bridesmaids; it is a savvy move to strengthen family relations.
