How To Plan A Wedding


There are so many decisions to make when you get married. Budgeting can be stressful, but try not to worry about it too much and trust that the two of us will work together as a team. Follow these few tips;

  • When it comes to contributions, clarity is key. It’s important that you know not only what your own contribution and value are but also how your partner’s ideas can contribute as well.
  • What percentage of your savings are you willing to put towards the wedding?
  • You want this day to be perfect with no regrets–however, not everyone has been on top of saving money and may have had different priorities in life that caused them not to be able to save enough beforehand.

When planning your wedding, don’t be surprised if you end up exceeding the budget that was originally set. To limit this possibility of going over-budget and ensure a realistic overview of how much it will cost to throw an unforgettable (and not too expensive) party for all guests, there are two things you should do:

  • Create a comprehensive spreadsheet listing every major service fee list 5% more than what is necessary on top as a buffer fund because anything can happen with weddings!


Planning a wedding is one of the most stressful and exciting moments in life. If you’re planning your own, don’t be afraid to ask for help or advice from friends that have been through it before! Here are some options:

Hiring a wedding planner:

It is one of the best investments you can make. A professional will handle your tasks and help with everything from décor to venue selection, music choices that match your style-the list goes on! Not only do they save time but also money too. 

Help from friends and family:

There are many ways to be organized, and if you don’t have the funds for a live-in planner or assistant, then it is totally okay to ask your family and friends. If they are happy to help out with this task, make sure not to rely on them as they also need their own time in order to keep up with other aspects of life such as going to work every day.

Selection of Wedding Date

Your wedding date is an important decision, but don’t let it stress you out. You can reach out to family and friends for help with the best options so that everyone has a chance of attending your big day.

If you want to have the best wedding ever, don’t forget these three things: location

  • Date
  • Catering

 Once you know what kind of venue you’re interested in (i.e., reception hall or outdoor event space), think about which days are available for a booking that would work with other aspects of your affair like dates for guests coming into town from out-of-town as well as a preference on seasons/weather patterns.

Wedding Party

It’s a monumental decision, choosing who you want to stand by your side on the day of your wedding. You have an important day in which people are going to be there for every step along the way from when you start planning up until right before it all begins and ends with “I do.”

List of Guests

I’m sure you have a lot of decisions to make as wedding planning progresses, but this is the one that might seem daunting at first glance. Building your guest list will be different depending on how many people are invited. 

Going through your contact list on the phone and social media platforms helps you decide who to invite. This is because if you want them at the wedding, then chances are they have their mobile number or Instagram handle on there somewhere.

Creation of wedding site and hashtags

Online and social media are a couple’s newest best friends when planning their wedding. From the day they first started dating to discussing potential honeymoon spots, everything can be handled on a smartphone these days! 

Consider the following tips when planning to share content with your wedding guests. You can share anything from photos of you and your partner on social media. This way, everyone has some idea about what’s going on, so there are no surprises come event day.

Choose your wedding dress.

You deserve to look your best on one of the most special days in your life, so it’s important you wear what makes you feel good. You might want to go for a more formal style with an elegant suit and tie or break out something comfortable like jeans and a blazer combo.
