A wedding is one of the best and most important days of a person’s life, but planning a wedding can be one of the most excruciating and tiresome things a person does. Get hitched without a hitch by remembering our tips for planning a wedding that’s organized, easy-going, and fun!
Research the Date
Choosing the date is one of the most important decisions in wedding planning. The last thing you want is for your big day to compete with a major event or a prominent holiday.
You may love the idea of a Christmas or New Year’s wedding, but you’ll likely see a drop in guest attendance as many travel and spend time with family during the holidays. Even a major sporting event on the same day can throw a wrench in the proceedings, so make sure you’re not competing with the Super Bowl, March Madness, World Cup, or other big game!
Get a Wedding Planner
A wise first move when planning a wedding is to get a planner. While we always recommend working with a good professional planner, you could save money in the budget by enlisting the help of a trusted member of your wedding party, friend, or relative if they’re up to the task.
Ideally, you want a planner with experience in wedding planning so they can provide insight and expertise that only those who have been through it before can provide. Plus, a wedding planner takes a huge amount of work off your plate, so you’re free to enjoy your engagement!
Let the Venue & Destination Inspire You
Even if it’s not a destination wedding, let the venue and location inspire the theme and look of your wedding. Instead of trying to remake the venue to your specific tastes, let its aesthetic and atmosphere influence the theme for your big day.
Consider a Michigan-themed wedding that showcases the location’s heritage and the couple’s shared history if you’re having a wedding in Michigan or if you and the groom are from the state or city you’re getting married in. The same goes for the menu—local cuisine is an excellent way to drive home the theme for a wedding!
Lastly, no matter how good of an amateur DJ and MC your friend or relative may claim to be, you always want to hire professionals. Hiring an amateur to entertain you and your wedding party can make or break the experience, you want someone with industry knowledge that provides professional expertise and resources.
Entertainment is one of the most common areas for planning issues, from setting up equipment to setting the atmosphere for the event. You don’t want to leave those responsibilities with an amateur, no matter how close of a friend they are.
