8 things you should know before planning a wedding

Getting Married can either be the most stressful time or the most enjoyable. I certainly learned that as my wedding was coming close. You first start by being worry about all the important details such as the style, color choice or theme of your event. Who you should invite or who you should  not . The location of the venue, the money you have available and even the vendors which you would use.

It is definitely a stressful time if you do not have an event planner, a friend or close advisor  by your side that can give you some sense of direction in that overwhelming period. I want to help you and  give you 8  things i wish I knew at my wedding that I know now that could have help me then.Unfortunately you cannot change the past but by sharing these out there I would get to help someone else have an easier experience.

1-  Budget is not that important because you don’t spend much in a small wedding

It is not true , budget will be always the most important factor to consider in a wedding. You might want to just have your family and your close friends as the only guests, but if you do not have a set plan you are doom from the beginning.

When coming up with a budget for a small wedding you must think about the most important pieces like the wedding dress and the groom suit, to the most minimal detail you must still factor it in. The food and the cake. Who will do what and what would be shared.

2- Do not stress over not having a big wedding like the rest 

Have you ever heard is not the size that matters , but the quality of the event that you are having that counts? Well is true to almost anything in life. Sometimes outside factors such as budget or more do not allow you to have that wedding of dreams that everyone makes in their head since movies and TV brainwash us to believe. Sometimes being content with just having the wedding is good enough. Realize your current circumstances. What good would it bring you to have a big expensive wedding if at the end you wont have enough to go in a special honeymoon or buy a house. Think and set realistic goals and invert in something you can really afford and that would allow you to do other things after. Plus save you some dollars to the side.

3-Your civil wedding has to be in the court no matter what.

I did not research enough for my wedding. When I took out my marriage license in NYC I though the court was the only place where someone can get married by the state. It did not occur to me that you could have a licensed officiant do your wedding in anywhere you want. Parks, beaches you name it . As long as is done following the proper guidelines of your state and the certificate is filled out correctly you can have the wedding that you want where you want it. Also upon finding that willing officiant

4-You do not need a wedding planner because you can do it yourself.

Unless you want sleepless nights before the wedding I would recommend you do have a planner that can help you at least manage and get everyone involved in order. You would stress less over the small details and be able to enjoy more the whole process. Think about comfort to have the best quality of an event . A planner can also help you with guiding you into the best event according to your budget . We all fear giving someone you do not know well  the control to your event. But think as you are giving the reigns to a professional that has experience and that can commit to providing you the best of services. You get a win-win situation right there.

5-Always have a plan B on hand

Weddings do not always go as planned. You might schedule something at a certain time so make sure your guests know this before hand so they do not delay anything ,specially if your having a small guests wedding where everyone is accountable for.Also make sure you emphasize the schedule time of start so those annoying guests that get there at last minute know that they must be early for this one. Always have rain in mind to have a back up plan in case. Being prepare will not just make the wedding more efficient but will save you headaches and allow you to have a better experience.

6-You shouldn’t do your own decoration and guest gifts

If your doing a small wedding and you feel you can have the patience and time to do your own guest gifts you should. Pinterest gives you amazing ideas of decorations and gifts you can do for your wedding. There is no rule you shouldn’t do this or that. At the end is your wedding and you have the right to decide. Of course some people would be more lenient to buy something to gift but I think your guest will be more than happy to receive a gift made by you. Have in mind that you might have some critique either way so is what you believe what you must do. Also if besides a planner you have an event stylist do not hinder their Opinion. Being open minded will help in communication between all the parties involve.

7- Wait until the last months to start doing everything 
Not true if you start planning early you will have enough time to plan smarter. Do not leave things for the last minute because we all know that rushing things do not have the best results. Start little by little putting all the pieces together from what dress, to what cake to choose. Start with who will you invite by making a tentative guest list, after doing it revise and cut those that you’re not that sure will be a good guest this will give you time to do a more concise list. Looking for the perfect dress is also another reason why some brides leave things at last minute allow at least 3 months in advance to find the right dress also consider budget when choosing. The other details can be arrange with a wedding planner or that person that has been assigned to help you.

 

8-You must choose all your vendors locally

When selecting your vendors make sure you do your research and compare services packages before selecting them. You can select people from different states as long as they are going to meet their contract to the T. Planning ahead will give you enough time to either schedule meetings with those tentative vendors and be able to discern . Before signing anything read the contracts well to see if what you signing is what you want. Making sure you coordinate all well so that your event runs smoothly.

Thanksgiving DIY decor

Thanksgiving is that perfect season to give and receive from your family and friends. Is a season to give thanks for having people  you care about close to you.

If you’re hosting a dinner, party  or if you just helping others in the decoration of an event you could help by suggesting to decide on a theme  that is customized to your style and that would bring that cozy feeling to the event. Customize the event with unique elements.

Combine elements that can come together such as pumpkins, coffee beans , acorns, pine-corns, or even dry leafs that together can make the theme stand up and most of all don’t forget to give thanks for just being together  and sharing the moments.

You could even suggest to incorporate a game of sharing thank you notes to one another for all they mean to you or a game where you anonymously say nice things of each other and you pick them at random to share. This will help each person attending feel happy and more positive about sharing this events. It is so important now on days to come together while technology and  the daily routines get in between family traditions.

Believe it or not having family traditions help maintain strong ties with  family & friends. It can become a time where you are not just force to come together  in the midst of busy schedules but you actually can interact  with one another. Make everyone participate in some part of the thanksgiving dinner ; either  in the set up of the table, serving the food or even cleaning.

Lastly,  cooking together can be fun, think that is only one night a year where you can share good moments and pick items for the menu that everyone  might love , just like that favorite dessert or that favorite spice drink for example. Bring in those cooking skills to show one another. In the case you have multiple people who  like to cook , encourage everyone to bring or make something special to share .

Whatever you decide, Thanksgiving is about giving thanks for all the blessings you receive and the family  that is part of your life. I wish you Happy holidays to you and your families. I hope you have enjoyed reading this post.

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.
