1. Invitations and guest list
Choosing who and who you would want to attend your wedding is very vital, and it is not as easy as you might imagine.
The first thing you need to do is write a list of all the people you do not want at your wedding then make a second list of the people you would like to see at your wedding reception.
Let your partner also put together a list of those he or she wants and doesn’t want at the wedding. Decide the number of guests that you want to show up at the reception, then bring both lists together and see if you have exceeded your desired number or there is still space for a few more people.
Once you have the list of people, you want at your wedding send them a notice six or eight weeks to your wedding day this way they do not have excuses not to show up.
When it comes to making your wedding invitation, it is best that you keep it simple. A lot of people spend so much money creating a wedding invitation, but that is unnecessary.
Keep things very simple and use a scratch off to show the date of your big day. Make sure there is a picture of the both of you on the invitation.
2. Choosing the perfect DJ or Band
What is a wedding reception without music? It is, in fact, one of the most important things you have to consider when planning your wedding reception.
Choose the right DJ or band to perform on your big day, and the easiest way to do this is to hire someone with experience, a good reputation, and stability.
There are different ways you can search for DJs and bands that would play on your wedding, and one of the easiest options you have is to check online.
If you live in South Africa for example, you can go online and search for South African wedding DJs, then browse through the various DJs that would pop up and read customer reviews.
You can also ask people around your vicinity to recommend good wedding DJs or bands for you. That way, you can get to meet the person or people one on one and ask for videos so help you judge how good they are.
3. Post party food and snacks
If you desire that your special day is different from that of every other person you have attended then change things up a little by introducing some rare and delicious snacks towards the end of your wedding reception.
This is one way to have people talking about your wedding reception even months after it has passed people love to eat new things and are usually amazed when they see foods that are not regular wedding party foods.
Something else you can do is serve your guests food in the middle of the wedding reception, then have them take some home at the end of the reception. Simply talk to the people in charge of snacks and food and tell them what you have in mind.
4. Choosing a wedding photographer
Your wedding day may come and go but there is always a way to save memories, and that is through photographs. Everyone knows that it is very important to hire a very good photographer to capture every single thing that goes on on your special day.
Make sure that everything is captured from when your guests arrive to when you kiss each other as husband and wife and have your first dance because all of these are moments that you would want to cherish for the rest of your life. It is very easy to get a good wedding photographer all you have to do is follow the same steps suggested in the DJ section above.
Check online for good wedding photographers in your vicinity it is very easy for you to find them online and see pictures of works they have done before that way you can choose wisely.
You can also check for photographers that have studios around your area then discuss price with them and tell them what exactly you want them to do for you.
Some people like to make videos as well as take pictures on their wedding day. The price will differ if you want only pictures to be taken from when you want your photographer to make both a video and take pictures of your big day. All of this should be discussed, and an agreement should be reached early.
Make sure to check for reviews left by other customers so that you do not end up with a photographer who would misplace your wedding pictures or delay in printing them for you.
5. Decorations lights and flowers
Your wedding decoration would talk a lot about your taste, but if you ask me, I would suggest that you go for a simple decoration especially if you are on a budget.
You will need to hire a wedding planner or a designer to give you the perfect wedding decoration just the way you have dreamt of it.
The wonderful thing about wedding decorations is that they make your special day everything beautiful for you-you can get wedding decorations of different themes, so it is also a way for you to express yourself.
Weddings can be very exciting and stressful. So for you not to forget important things, it is best that you start making a list of all the things you do not want to forget at least three weeks to your wedding.
New brides and grooms usually forget to eat on their wedding day make sure that you have something to eat in the morning so that you do not get dizzy or end up being extremely tired.
This is an amazing new face of your life, and it is your right to enjoy all the awesomeness and excitement that comes with it. Remember that you must consider your pocket when planning your wedding so that you do not run into debt.
