Essential Dream Day Planning Checklist
by Roxana Oliver
Every lady thinks about her wedding day at some point of her life, while some spend a lot of time daydreaming about this special occasion. With thorough plans and wonderful ideas to make this day special, wedding preparation craze may come as a shock once the moment to say the faithful “I do” grows near. Wedding preparation and organization is not a walk in the park, especially since you can’t pause your other obligations and responsibilities. However, it’s important not to leave everything to wedding agencies and planners. Even with your busy schedule, you can experience all the fun of getting ready for the big day if you focus on the things that matter the most. With that in mind, take a look at the following wedding checklist that can help you organize yourself better.
Create a guest list
Coming up with a guest list is definitely the first step you need to complete. Essentially, the number of guests will determine your choice of the wedding venue as well as influence the final menu. You and your partner should do this together. If you don’t want a big wedding, make sure that you invite only your closest family members and friends. On the other hand, if a big wedding is something you dream of, you have to be very careful so that you don’t forget anyone you want to share this special moment with.
Choose the venue
Choosing the venue is not an easy task. In that respect, you may want to leave this bit to your wedding planner. Don’t forget to explain what atmosphere you’d like and to provide them with the final number of guests. On the other hand, if you want to do this on your own, make sure to start your search well beforehand. Be it a unique place or an elegant wedding venue, finding the one that suits your ideal wedding theme and is free to book can take some time.
Send out the invitations
You shouldn’t send the invitations before you have the final guest list and a booked wedding venue. However, once it’s time to choose your beautiful wedding stationery, you can get as personal and as creative as you want. This is definitely a very fun part of the whole wedding planning process since you can design your own wedding invitations or enjoy searching for the right style among the gorgeous selection of premade ones.
Perfect wedding dress
No matter how busy you are, you will definitely find the time to go on a hunt for your perfect wedding gown. And when it comes to your wedding dress, you should never settle for anything less than what you’ve imagined. Take your best friends with you and have them help you find your way around the stores. On the other hand, a quick yet very effective solution would be hiring a wedding seamstress. That way you can be positive that your dress will fit your body shape perfectly and look exactly like the one from your dreams.
Flowers and other details
Instead of looking for the possible options on your own, you can save a lot of time if your wedding planner presents you with all available choices of flowers and other décor details. You can enjoy choosing these lovely details for your wedding simply by sitting down, sipping coffee and flipping through the wedding magazine that your wedding planner has provided for you.
Even if you don’t have all the time in the world to dedicate to your ideal wedding organization, you can still come up with a schedule that will allow you to enjoy every moment of this journey. This means more fun and less stress instantly!
