Become Your Own Wedding Planner!
The first thing that needs to be considered when planning the
ultimate wedding is how much time you will give yourself for the
planning. In essence; this means what day that you will set the
date of the wedding.
This may sound like a trivial matter, but it really is important
because it will let you know what the time limit is for making
your preparations. Some weddings can take up to 3-4 months to
prepare for and plan. This is pretty typical; depending on how
big you are planning for your wedding to be and how fancy etc.
If you are not giving yourself more than a month, then planning
is naturally different. Because of the differences in the time
that you are giving yourself to planning the wedding, it is best
to give the best planning methods and you may use them or not
use them as they apply to your case. One of the most important
factors that go with planning a wedding is determining who you
will be delegating specific duties to. For example, if you are
terrible at choosing flowers, who will you assign to do it for
It is always best to try to give different duties to others so
that you will not be overwhelmed by them yourself. Let's take a
look at some of the various duties that you can hand out:
Catering: Who do you believe would be the best person to handle
all of the arrangements for the food and drink at your wedding?
Invitations and seating arrangements: This person will be
addressing and mailing out invitations and making sure that
people are seated in a fashion that will ensure everyone's
mutual comfort and enjoyment
Decorations for wedding and reception includes center pieces.
Rehearsal dinners etc. Music and/or DJ. Brides maid and
groomsmen gifts and favors. Gowns and tuxedos. Bridal showers,
bachelor parties etc.
All of these things are usual must haves when it comes to a
wedding, unless of course, you opt not to have bridesmaids or
groomsmen in the wedding. All of these things can be murder to
try to do on your own as well.
That is why you have to get in touch with people who are capable
of taking over some of the menial jobs for you. All of these
things seem small at first, but they can quickly add up to quite
a bit of money when they are all combined together.
After you have delegated the responsibilities, you should next
set a specific time period to have all of the tasks completed.
Creating a to-do list and time sheet is a great way to do this.
That way, when all of the tasks are finished you can easily
check them off.
