Planning Your Big-Day!Vehicle Services
Getting married is no small deal. It is your first step towards a new life. There is that combo of excitement, fear and the undeniable stress that comes with the necessity to plan everything perfectly. We understand you perfectly, so here is a basic guideline as to how you should get started.
Plan your budget
It is recommended that you start planning for the big day at least 8 months ahead. There are several reasons for this. Having more time helps you come up with a budget, save up and make plans accordingly. So, begin leafing through magazines that can give you advice on planning the ceremony; talk to consultants and get their opinion. Come up with a budget that will get you through to an amazing ceremony without completely drying you off.
Choosing the invitees
This is one of the most sensitive aspects of the planning process. You will have to make a list of all those you want to be there with you, sharing your happiness. However, the reality is that you cannot have them all, without adding a massive strain on your budget. So, the ideal option is to start with the closest circles of family and friends, and then keep adding people to the list. Take time to do this, since you are most likely to forget some important people on the first go. The truth is that you will have to maintain friendships and acquaintances even after the ceremony, so be sensitive about who you leave out and who you invite.
The date and the place
Visit several locations before you decide on the date and the place. It is important that you attend to this task well in advance, since most places get booked months before. If you plan to have the ceremony and the reception separately, then consider the distance between the two venues, and the time it will take for you to go from one place to the other. In choosing the dates, be mindful about avoiding dates that are generally inconvenient for people.
Decorations and what-not
If you want to have a theme for the ceremony, go for it! But make sure that you decide well in advance, so that you can get all the decorations, food and even the wedding cars done according to this theme. But also be practical – having extreme themes can be a headache for your guests as they will have to find costumes to suit that.
Bridesmaids and best men
Decide on your bridesmaids and best men, and ask them if they would like to take up that role. Talking to them in advance ensures that they will be available for the day. Moreover, get them involved in your planning – this will make them feel as if they truly belong. Depending on their free times, ask them for advice on the dress, the cake, the wedding cars in Wollongong, the decorations, etc.
The dress hunt
The dress hunt is always a challenge. You will need to get that perfect dress that is a blend of your personality, charm, simplicity and elegance. There are many shops that are happy to render this service for you, but not all of them come cheap.Besides, you will have to go for at least 3 fittings before things are finalized. Hence it is always better to get started on this as soon as possible. This can even be a perfect date with your girlfriends! Take them with you and let them help you with selecting the dress!
