Weddings are wonderful, magical, especially in the life of two people who love each other and have decided to unite their lives forever; but the plan it requires needs protocol and steps to follow, in order for it to be truly perfect. To start planning a wedding you must, initially, set a date. Good planning, time and order will help when the day comes and ensures that you do not lack anything and that everything is controlled. Planning should begin between 6 months and a year before the day of the wedding.

The next step you should take is to set the theme of your wedding. For example, you could choose a fairytale theme. This way you can start to buy the necessary clothes, like a Cinderella inspired wedding dress and pink bridesmaid dresses for your bridal party.

When planning a wedding it is critical that you make an estimate of the approximate costs of the most important details such as the place where it will take place, invitations, banquet, cake, wine, flowers, music, photography and video, honeymoon, etc. The most important financial aspect in the scenario of a fairytale wedding will include the ball gown, the pink bridesmaid dresses and the groom’s princely suit.

Civil marriage, court, and church requires legal. Prepare the necessary (baptismal, birth, etc.) documentation. These documents should be ready well in advance since the absence of these means the wedding will not be legitimate in the eyes of the law.

To plan a wedding, you need to create a guest list. Begin thinking of the family and close friends, then go with bosses or co-workers that are important for both the bride and groom.

Unless you and your loved one decided on another form of showing commitment, you will need to get your wedding rings made well in advance in order to ensure that they are perfect and fit right on the big day.

Focus on your vision for your wedding to have a coherent theme that reflects your personality and that of your partner’s. The wedding is yours! Enjoy every moment but keep to a specific theme around which every detail of your party is planned, because the important thing is that it is unique and personalized.

The most important thing to know before you get married is that it’s okay if things don’t work out perfectly. The most important thing is that it is a celebration of love.
