Planning a Wedding” could be the title of a whole collection of books on the topic. Fortunately, there’s no need to get a degree in event planning or take out a second mortgage to enjoy a wonderful marriage ceremony. Here’s a list of steps to keep in mind while preparing for the big day:

 

  • Brain Storm: Browse wedding-related magazines and web sites, ask friends for advice, or simply take pen and paper and jot down the features you think a perfect wedding should have. This will help the event to take shape in your mind before it actually occurs.
  • Decide on a Budget: Estimate the finances you have on hand as well as expected contributions from family and friends. Remember that a beautiful wedding doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Even simple events can lead to a lifetime of cherished memories.
  • Decide who will be in the wedding party. Most people pick long-time friends or close family members. You might need to cross a few people off the list if you have too many candidates from which to choose. Be sure to take everyone’s feelings into account, but remember that, in the end, the wedding is all about the bride and groom. So their wishes should be most important.
  • Create the guest list. It’s important to match the list to the chosen venue. Small, intimate settings call for a select group of cherished acquaintances. Larger facilities can accommodate sizable parties. In any case, make sure you’re comfortable having the people on your list at the event. Everyone should be able to relax and enjoy pleasant company  during the wedding and the reception.
  • Reserve the chosen venue. If you’re unsure of which location you want, then visit churches, chapels, and other places that are appropriate for a wedding. Beautiful ceremonies have been held at outdoor parks, along the shore, and even in restaurants. Remember, however, that some venues may require a little innovation. For example, a wedding on the beach can be amazing. But it may also require a bit of creativity when it comes to providing food and other amenities.

  • Hire the photographer and/or videographer. You can find qualified professionals in your local Yellow pages or on the Net, but you might have better luck asking friends and relatives for recommendations.
  • Set up a wedding registry: You can also create online registries at sites like amazon.com. Make sure everyone knows how to view the list of suggested gifts.
  • Create a Website: If you have the required tech skills or know someone who does, you might want to create a wedding web site. This need not be elaborate. It’s possible to create wonderful sites using drag-and-drop tools from companies like Godaddy and wix.com.
  • Choose & send Invitations: Choose the invitations and send them out well in advance of the ceremony. You can also print the invitations yourself on a home-based printer if the guest list is small.
  • Cake: Order the cake or make arrangements for a talented acquaintance to handle the job.
  • Entertainment:  Hire a DJ, band, photobooth rental or other entertainment if applicable.
  • Food: Choose a caterer or make plans to provide food yourself.
  • Find an officiant: This can be an ordained clergyperson or, if you prefer, a judge, justice of the peace, or even a cruise ship captain. It can also be a close friend or relative who acquires the necessary credentials online. Just make sure the choice conforms to your state laws.
  • Licenses: Square away marriage licenses and other legal matters well before the wedding day.
  • Plan a Party! Plan a bachelor or bachelorette party if desired.

 

Finally, pat yourself on the back for a job well done and enjoy the big day! You deserve it for all your hard work and planning.
