Wedding planning is a 50-50 affair with many tense moments. A planner will have to put into perspective, the wants of both a bride and her groom.
You need to get information from both of them, to get a general picture of what they want. With these answers, you can then figure out something. Go through the following checklist to come up with a superb function:
You should formulate a list of items that should appear in the wedding. That way you will not end up skipping something crucial. Some things that are a must feature in this list is the dresses for both, your photography plans and the venue. The date and time should as well be known and the budgeting can follow.
Remember that resources are more often than not a scarce item. If one works with a budget, he can know if he is over or under spending. Budgets guide you on spending reasonably.
When the venue of a wedding is identified, the plans to do with decorating it can then follow. One thing to note, whenever someone chooses to have a wedding held at night, there will be an extra cost because of lighting needs. Anyway, you should get a figure of the number of guests to be invited and print wedding cards.
The timeframe to distribute the cards is about 2 weeks in the run up to the big day. The amount spent will definitely depend on exactly how many guys are coming. Refreshments and the main dish should be planned.
One place you cannot afford to get it wrong is the photography. You may have a fancy wedding but if you made no plans for photographs, it all gets flashed down the pipes. You will never remember it with that realistic spark. Get the services of a professional. They will know from experience, what equipment and scenes to capture.
When you are finally able to systematically go through these specified steps, you can run a wedding event without having many hitches. Having a habit of following these steps will help you plan and hold excellent events worth remembering years later.
