WEDDING AND TIMELINE FOR A PERFECT CEREMONY
Organizing a wedding is a very emotional, stimulating and captivating experience, but also very demanding. It is as if the Bride and Groom are making a movie, where the director and producer work together as a team to create a quality product while respecting budget and deadlines, to everyone's satisfaction.
It is always best to plan ahead for the wedding invitations, locations, apparel, menu, wedding favors, honeymoon, and anything unexpected.
How to create a picture-perfect wedding? Simply follow a timeline and rely on trustworthy and experienced people such as a Wedding Day Coordinator or Wedding Planner.
Once the date for the Big Day has been decided, it is time for the preparations to begin. A Wedding is a memorable occasion and not only for the Bride and Groom. Everything must be perfect, a wonderful celebration of love to be shared with family and friends. At the initial stages of the preparations, there are multitudes of things to do and it is often difficult to know where to begin. Relax, buy an agenda to record your "step by step" action plan, without stress: the important thing to remember is to respect the timeline.
CALENDAR OF EVENTS
The first step towards a successful event is to choose the date, and this should be done at least one year ahead. The reservation for the restaurant/location and the preparation of the guest list should also be done within this timeframe. Although this may appear to be excessive, time really does fly and things don't always go as they should, so it is wise to give yourselves extra leeway.
Six months before the event is time to select the Maid of Honour and Best Man, the wedding bands, suppliers and very importantly, the wedding dress.
Other things such as the accessories, floral arrangements and various decorations can wait to be chosen up to one month before the wedding.
A final word of advice: take up offers of help and delegate whenever you can.
