“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
– Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally
So you’re ready to tie the knot? Congratulations! Though this is a time for celebration, it is also a time for some serious planning. Girl, roll up your sleeves because coordinating your wedding won’t be easy. Whether you want a simple ceremony or a luxurious ballroom event, the decisions are endless – deciding between DJ or band, who will cater, colour schemes, photography, etc. Make sure to involve your fiancé in all discussions. After you have finalized the wedding theme and style, setting a budget should be your next priority. Remember, formal receptions are quite expensive. There are also higher costs for Saturdays, evenings and all summer months.
Once you have selected a date, your bridal party, and firm budget, next up is the guest list. Whether you are planning a small, intimate gathering or a large event, the guest list will take some time. It may become overwhelming, so hiring a wedding planner can alleviate some of that stress.
Once most of the planning has been sorted, now comes the fun part, looking for your perfect dress! Making sure you feel beautiful on your special day should become your main priority. Don’t forget that the season will also play a role in your choice. If you are going with a summer wedding, choose light fabrics such as chiffon, linen or organza. If you’ve set your sights on a winter wedding, brocade, faux fur, and velvet fabrics would be a perfect choice. Satin, shantung, and tulle are great year-round.
