When it comes to weddings, theres a lot that needs planning. It is tempting to plan the bits you’re most interested in or excited about first. However, this is not an efficient way to do things. Here are a few pf the things that can wait when planning your wedding – they might be the better things to plan, but at least it gets the boring stuff out of the way first.
Picking Your Bridesmaids
You may have many urges to pick your bridesmaids the second you have that ring on your finger , but don’t rush it! Give yourself a few months to make your decisions. This will put you in a better position when it comes to actually choosing your bridesmaids as you’ll know how many you can afford.
As much as this may be the thing you want to set to work on straightaway, hold off on dress shopping. It’s not until after you’ve picked your dat and venue that you will actually know the type of dress you will need. Plan those aspects first as it will be much easier to find a dress to fit those requirements rather than choosing a date and venue to fit your dress.
Like with your wedding dress, these can’t really be picked until you’ve got your date and venue. Wait until a few months before when a lot of the aesthetic features of your big day are in place before getting started with the bridesmaids dresses.
Before you even think about seating plans, you need a guest list. There is no need for you to begin compiling a seating plan until roughly a month before the wedding. By then you’ll know who can attend and who can’t, so it should be straightforward then.
This one is the same as the seating plan. Favours can’t be decided upon until after the guest list has been created. To know what to get and how many to have is going to have to be something of an afterthought.
What pattern should the table cloth have? What shade of blue should the best man’s tie be? They are all minor details. Get the bigger, more important details out of the way first before worrying about the more trivial things.
There really is no need to go about things such as name changes until after the wedding. It’s just another thing that doesn’t have to be done right away, so why create the work for yourself? Once you’ve said ‘I do’, then start looking into legal documents.
So many different factors affect your honeymoon. The time of year when your honeymoon will take place and how much you can afford to spend on it are things you won’t know until the later stages of wedding planning. Therefore, it is not until you know these things that you should begin to plan and book your honeymoon.
So, there’s a few things you can hold off own when planning your wedding. These really are aspects that don’t have to be sorted right away, so you’ll be saving yourself some work during the early stages of creating your perfect wedding.
