Planning on what type of wedding dress you will wear the type of cake and how many bridesmaids you will have. You choose your partners based on your romantic notion of prince charming and then one day you find him. He proposes to you, and you have a wedding to plan and it will be important that you take every detail into consideration. Having a disaster on your wedding day is never something a couple plans for. That is why it is important for every detail of the wedding to be looked over, and not overlooked. This includes the location, time of year, theme, invitations, cake, food, wedding party, attire, wedding dress fitting and many other miscellaneous areas. Be prepared for all the tension that comes with planning a wedding and figure out how you will handle them.

One of the main things you can do is get a wedding planning workbook. Ensure it has all the resources, steps and guides that you can use to plan a wedding ceremony and the reception; from day one until the execution of the event. You will use this planner to keep track of all the details, and it will help you to remain organised. A workbook will also stop you from forgetting some of the minor details that may slip through the cracks and you won’t wake up on your wedding day, dreading that some minor detail was forgotten. You should also keep all invoices, bills and receipts in this workbook.

There are disastrous things that happen on a wedding day. Some you may not learn about until after the wedding ceremony; such as getting horrible or low quality pictures of your wedding. This would be devastating for any couple as it was the only way you could capture such a precious moment. Therefore ensure you get a professional and research them to the hilt. Make sure you have seen samples of their work, meet with them on a couple of occasions, do they show up early, how is their personality and do they respect your opinion. You have to look out for all these things. Make sure they have more than one person taking pictures or doing the video recording. Some couples ask their friends or family members to take pictures as well just to make sure.

You have to do wedding planning for other disasters like not getting your wedding location. You cannot leave this detail until the last minute. It is one of the first things that you have to take care of; a popular wedding location goes like hot bread, especially in the peak wedding, spring, or summer season. Once you have decided try to get the venue booked and contract signed. Make sure you have alternative just in case that it is booked. Not having wedding dress is a disaster of epic proportions to most brides; especially if they have lost weight, gained weight, or had some accident. There are thousands of options to getting a dress online, research websites and stores in and around your area. Make sure you take a trusted friend and family member on your hunt, to give you constant honest feedback on how you look in it. The dress of your dreams might not be the best dress for your body.
