Steps to organize the wedding
It is necessary to plan everything well and have clear ideas from the beginning so that the wedding is perfect.
How to choose the wedding date well?
Undoubtedly one of the first and most important decisions that you will have to think carefully about. You will have to take into account the season of the year, the weather and the day of the week. So that there is no problem, it is better to choose several dates so that you have more to choose from. There are more and more couples who, instead of deciding to celebrate their big day on Saturday, prefer a Friday or a Sunday. Likewise, you also have to think about a date that does not pose much of a problem for your guests.
Another of the primordial parts of a wedding. The guest list. In the end, a day as special as this, you want to share it with the people closest to you: your friends and family. That’s why you have to think carefully about who you want to invite and that you don’t miss anyone on that list, because otherwise he obviously won’t attend the ceremony.
How much do you plan to spend?
Calculating the budget you have and the number of guests who will go is also essential, because that way you will also know how much you want to spend on each part of the wedding preparations, taking into account that obviously the space and catering will be what will cost you the most.
How to choose the place where the wedding is going to be held?
You will have to decide the type of wedding you would like to do: modern, vintage, country, on the beach… There are countless options! Obviously you also have to be clear if you want a religious wedding or on the other hand more civil, so you can also choose the type of wedding you want. Bigger, more intimate, more modern, more traditional?
The type of wedding you decide in the same way will help you when choosing the dress, the decorations, the type of music… With a little imagination and creativity you will make your ceremony unique and unparalleled.
The best suppliers
This task is crucial, because in the end if you have a wonderful place and a spectacular dress but the suppliers you have chosen ruin the ceremony everything will have gone down the drain. The photographer, videographer, florist, musician, decorators… everything has to be thought out to the millimeter and you have to talk to several until you find the right one. Above all, the most important thing is good communication and the feeling that that person gives you.
Most anticipated moment after getting married, the honeymoon trip with your new husband. After thinking and choosing well what destination you want to go to, in the same way you will have to adapt well to the time of year to which you want to travel to that place, so as not to find that it is winter there, for example.
Basic rules for the wedding to be perfect
First of all, obviously the only one who can wear white is the bride, black is a color that should also be avoided. At all times you have to keep in mind that you don’t have to overshadow the bride, who is the protagonist of her big day.
If the wedding is during the day, it is advisable to wear a dress below the knee and the mothers should wear long sleeves or wear high gloves. If, on the other hand, the ceremony is at night, it is allowed to lengthen the length of the dress.
The pamelas can only be used during the day and the headdresses can be avoided at all costs at night. If you need to wear a hair accessory, make it more subtle. It is always recommended that footwear is comfortable and jewelry that is well balanced with the rest of the accessories.
Men, on the other hand, have it much easier. The suit with a jacket is always the best decision for them (recommended not to take off the jacket). It’s better not to go in a tuxedo or a tailcoat. You can choose between tie or bow tie, but the bow tie can only be worn with the tuxedo.
Wearing a watch is more than enough, avoiding bracelets and chains and especially sunglasses, even if everyone ends up wearing them.
If the invitation is not specified, you must ask the bride and groom about the children’s issue. The best thing to do if in the end you decide to take them is that they have a separate area for them. And, at lunchtime, we recommend that when you confirm your attendance you let us know if you have any type of allergy or intolerance, so that there is no problem later.
To finish, the dance will always be opened by the best man with the bride, followed by the godmother with the groom. When the couple finishes the waltz, all the guests will be able to dance with whoever they want.
