If this is the year when you have decided to tie the knot – congratulations! As the wedding season is approaching, a whirlwind of questions is filling the minds of couples that are about to get married. Location, food, the dress, and the guest list are just some of the things on a wedding checklist that needs to be taken care of. They say that good planning is half the battle, but things don’t always go as planned. Here are a few tips to help you get ready for your big day.
Nothing makes the wedding reception more memorable than an appetizing menu. If you’re having a traditional wedding, here’s some advice – choose between a buffet and a sit-down dinner. However, if you’re looking for a hip and trendy wedding menu there is a whole variety of options to choose from. Mini food stations and even food trucks have become quite popular, although it’s quite a splurge when it comes to finances. A wedding cake will be the centrepiece of your reception so feel free to make it as spectacular as you want. Whether it’s a simple one with thick white icing or a tree tier so-called naked cake, make sure it’s delicious. No matter which menu you go for, remember to try everything beforehand. This way you’ll avoid unpleasant surprises.
Hire a wedding planner
Planning a wedding can seem like a daunting task. Even if you’re a master of multitasking, you may feel like you’ve bitten more than you can chew. Sure, you are used to juggling between business meeting, projects, deadlines, family dinners, and yoga classes, but this is the time to slow down and think carefully whether or not you want to take a plunge. To avoid crazy-making situations, especially if your wedding is at some exotic destination like Bali, it is highly advisable to ask for help. The good news is that there are many Bali wedding planners who will help you organise the wedding that you’ve always dreamed of. Not only a good planner will help you with the preparations, but they will also be there on your special day to take care of the last-minute details. Sounds perfect, right?
Don’t overdo it
When it comes to weddings, a general rule of thumb is – keep it simple. It’s easy to get carried away, and we understand that, but keep in mind that your guests will be coming to celebrate your love. They won’t be interested in participating in a juggler’s performance or any of those spectacular show-stopping activities you might have planned. Sure, you have been dreaming your whole life to have swans at your wedding but are they really necessary? Probably not. Don’t forget that you’re not just organizing the event, you’re getting married, and that is what this day should be about.
Don’t sweat the small stuff
You don’t have to consider yourself a control freak just because you don’t like unpleasant surprises. Some things can’t be helped, but your perspective is the real game-changer. Lower your expectations and don’t freak out if the fondant on the cake has a flaw, or if the singer forgets the words of your song. Simply smile and accept the things as they are because down the road, you won’t remember any of those. Keep a positive attitude and just enjoy this day to the fullest. Your smile will make the best impression on the guests and it will set the tone of the whole wedding.
Planning a wedding doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. Following these tips will help you keep your focus on the important things and ensure you have time of your life on this very special day.
