You’ve probably thought about getting married ever since you were a little kid – whether you’d like to admit it or not! Your primitive little mind probably thought about what the handsome or beautiful bride or groom will look like, and how it will feel. Sure, it didn’t stick in your mind for long – you had more important things to do, like gossiping and video games!
The wedding notion stayed in your mind all this time, however – from a young age into adulthood. It’s a totally normal thing to do as it’s a big part of someone’s life. You’d think about how everything would go and you’d worry about if it all goes to plan.
But now the time has come. You’re engaged to the love of our life, and you’re to plan out the upcoming event. All of those thoughts you had over the years are suddenly going to be put down and organized. You’d, of course, want every single bit to be perfected, but that doesn’t tend to be feasible or realistic, so you’ll have to focus mainly on the things that matter the most to you. If you’re not too sure what you see as the most important parts, let’s run through a few.
Have you always wanted to get married abroad? Perhaps you’ve forever pictured yourself tying the knot in a beautiful climate away from your everyday life. If the location is your main focus, it’ll be expensive to get yourselves and other there, so all the other aspects will likely be molded around this.
A similar thought to before. This time it’s the particular roof under which you’ll be married. Some traditional places like churches and private venues won’t kill your bank account, but if you’re looking for something fancy like, say, a castle, then, like before, it’s probably going to be the dearest aspect of your allocated budget.
It’s the reason you’re doing this in the first place. You’re going to want to make this a tremendous and memorable service without a shadow of a doubt. If you’re hoping to prioritize this part, you can add things like a horse and carriage to take you to and from the venue, a professional choir, or an orchestra that can play beautiful music for everyone. It can be more than just traditional rituals!
If the wedding rings mean an awful lot to you, then you can always chuck a little more money at the jewelers and get the perfect one for you. Thanks to modern craftsmanship and technology, you can get engagement rings handcrafted with extraordinary care in almost no time. If you want a special phrase, word or message engrained, or a special design, you can ask for it.
Do you want a whole host of guests? Do you want a huge group of people that you’ve known and gotten along with to come and have a blast at your wedding? Or do you only want a select few in a very intimate wedding? If you worry about how they’re treated, you can always take a lot of care in making and writing the invitations and thank you cards. You can get beautiful and expensive cards that show people how much you mean to them or you can create some from scratch and really put in that personal touch.
Are you going to have the reception at a different venue? Is it going to be a big, beautiful place that’s dedicated to holding weddings, receptions, and parties? If you want to focus on these proceedings, then you’ll probably want to have the place packed with amazing service, tasty foods, and lots of things to see and do.
The Wedding Party
The party is the most exciting part of the whole day, naturally. You may or may not think it yourself, but the guests are ready for a boogie! If you’re looking to give everyone a good time, you’ll probably want to have a little think about the type of entertainment that will take place in the evening. You could hire a band to perform throughout the evening. You could also have a DJ to take over when the group needs a little break. There could be fun games for everyone to get involved with, too. If you have little ones at the wedding, you could hire a children’s entertainer like a magician or a clown to keep them occupied if ever they feel bored.
