Every woman dreams of her own wedding. May it be a small gathering in a picturesque orchard, a grand ball in a gigantic castle or a funky wedding along coastline, she wants it planned and tailored to her wishes. Planning your wedding would take time, effort and energy but it's worth it. For brides out there, here are some things you can't forget to look into.
1. Payments Of course, planning your wedding will need sufficient amount of cash. Establish who pays for what. This is usually worked out between couple and their families.
2. Marriage License Requirements There are different requirements for each state, so be sure to look into yours. Remember that you can't even start planning your wedding without a license so make it high priority.
3. Booking ceremony and reception. Choose a place to hold your wedding. It'd be great if both parties talk about it. Also, planning your wedding means planning reception well so that there won't be wrinkles in your wonderful day.
4. Reception Ideas Planning your wedding by yourself might become tiring, so set up a brainstorming session with your friends and relatives to work out details. List ideas in a piece of paper and deliberate on them carefully. Properly laid out plans are wonderful to work with.
5. Invitations The invitation should be simple yet elegant. An overly decorated invitation just turns people off. Remember to include all people involved in wedding itself and address them properly. Be sure to indicate if you're inviting children of family too because most parents don't take them to weddings if their presence is not specifically requested.
6. Catering Oohh... success of every party more often than not relies on its food. Make sure that what you serve is of good quality and that they taste good. Go over menu with head chef and ask him for suggestions. Not only that this will give you great ideas, it will form a bond between you and chef. Keep in mind that when planning your wedding, it pays to be in good terms with most of staff.
