Everyone expects their wedding day to be magical. And why shouldn’t it be? It’s when you commit your life to the one person you love the most in this world! However, that love is not going to magically take the dream wedding idea in your mind and make it become a reality. You, your fiancé, and hopefully a support group like your family and friends will have to put in some effort in accomplishing all the needed tasks to make your dream wedding come true. Included in these responsibilities are choosing the right wedding packages, coming up with the final guest list, and making sure you don’t go over budget, among many other things.
You should also account for possible unavoidable problems that may come along the way. Instead of simply hoping nothing bad happens and then panicking when it does, it’s better to be prepared.
Determining your budget is the first step in wedding preparations. Majority of the decisions you need to make will need to fit your budget. It’s a horrible idea to start planning a wedding without a budget, because you’re bound to recklessly spend a ton of money without realizing it.
Having a budget will help you make good decisions as to things like who you really want to invite, whether it’s better to DIY some aspects like the invitations, and whether you’re willing to spend a several extra thousand bucks for a slightly more extravagant dress when you’ve already found a beautiful dress for a much lower price. In short, a well thought of budget will save you from throwing all your savings away.
Wardrobe malfunction does not only happen to celebrities on a red carpet, it can also happen to brides and grooms at their own weddings. Always have an emergency kit that includes safety pins, button pins, garment tape, a mini sewing kit.
Beauty Disaster before the Big Day
We all know that organizing a wedding can be stressful. Because you prioritize all the preparations, it’s easy to forget yourself! Make sure you always get enough sleep and drink a lot of water to keep you hydrated and your skin moisturized. Plan a pamper day a week before your wedding for facials, scrubs, or massages. If you’re not going to hire a makeup artist (or they won’t be there for the whole wedding and reception) assign one of your bridesmaids to be mindful of how you look throughout the event. Have them carry a small pouch that includes an eyebrow pencil, eyeliner, translucent powder, and wet wipes in case of emergencies.
Failure of Electricity in the Venue
Wouldn’t it be horrible if you’re in the middle of the dance floor and all of a sudden, the electricity goes out? Make sure to choose a venue with a backup plan in case the electricity gets cut off.
Mistakes and problems are inevitable. But with ample preparation time, having back up plans and keeping a cool head, your wedding day will more likely be a successful one.
