Wedding Planning Tips and Tricks

Planning a wedding is an exciting thing, and can be very scary. With some basic tips and tricks, you will be sure to make you day special.

Be sure to setup your honeymoon at the same time as you setup your bridal registry! This will allow your guest to be able to choose the perfect gifts for you and even help you with your honeymoon. We have put together some wedding tips and tricks to help you speed up the process a little.

Pay all deposits on your credit card. Do not give any money without a contract, and never pay deposits by check! If you paid by credit card, and they do not provide you with what they agreed in the contract, you can always have the transaction taken off your account. A check is harder to collect on you will be required to take them to court.

What to Do First

The first three things should be done right away.

1) Choose the church, temple, or other ceremony location, and the date you want to be married.

2) Choose the reception location, date, and time.

3) Choose your photographer.

Most brides think they can always just choose the day they get married and that is the end of it. Nevertheless, this is not the true in most cases, be prepared to give up the date you have chosen for your special day unless you are fortunate enough to get the reception location and church available the same day. It is a known fact that you really are not the one that decides when you want to get married the place of the ceremony and reception halls do.

Our Recommendations

Choose at least three dates that you would consider getting married on

Choose one or two places you would like to have the ceremony and reception and book them immediately

Start on the wedding guest list as early as possible, this will then give people enough time to plan for your wedding.

Start picking out what decorations and flower arrangement at least one month before your wedding.

Arrange and book honeymoon travel as early as three or four months ahead, this will allow you the best possible price.

Prepare as much ahead of time as you can, so that you do not have a lot to do at the last minute.

Try to get your future spouse involved in the decision making process on all things, this will help you to learn to work together on things.

Do not be afraid to ask for help or designate work for others in the wedding party to do. If you choose your wedding party early, you can get all the help you need.
