Here are some tips to plan your day:
Set a budget. It's important to stick to a budget and to keep your wishes realistic.
Set the timeline for planning. Begin with a calendar before you and try following a suggested timeline from a wedding guide.
Choose a workable method for your record-keeping. You'll need to keep tabs of everything you've already decided and what's planned ahead.
Decide on the size of your wedding. You'll need to know how many people are going to attend for the purposes of venues, catering and invitations. As part of this decision, choose your bridal party.
Wedding clothes and accessories: Research,design and order your wedding dress minimum six months in advance. Decide on bridesmaid's dresses at the same time. Get tuxedos and groomsmen clothing sorted and ordered about four months prior to the wedding.
You don't have to stick with tradition or spend a fortune on something you'll never use again.
Select the wedding rings. Rings symbolizes your devotion to each other. Most couples get matching rings to show that they complete one another's soul.
Register for gifts when there are about 9 months to go until your wedding, also allow for non-gift list choices.
The reception should be a fun and joyous time - a time for the couple to share their happiness with the guests who are waiting to extend their best wishes. Sit-down meal, cocktail party, picnics, cake-cutting, or beach reception are the most common.
