After Booking a Venue

Hello,

I’m back with another topic, lets get into it. If you are planning your own wedding, and your confused on what to do after booking your venue, and question when is it too early or too late to book things, then you came to the right place. Let me start by saying, after booking your venue you kinda forget about booking the other stuff because your wedding is a year from the booking, some people don’t have a year to plan out their wedding and they get into it and they don’t care about the order it goes. Anyways, I’m going to do a list of the things you should do after booking a venue and explain why, again this is all based on my own experience.

If your wedding is a year from the booking then you need to do the following:

  1. Theme: Again I said hem because it is the most important part of the wedding, everything will fall nicely together if it all matches, for example I had a lilac theme to my wedding from the time of booking the venue, I was set on it but then after finding out that lilac is very hard to find for bridesmaids dress I decided to change it to pink. As long as you have an idea you can play around with it, so if you ever change your mind you can change it something similar so your work doesn’t go to waste.
  2. Book your Singer/band/DJ: They book fast, so you need to get them as soon as you can if you have any in mind.
  3. Photographers & Videographers: You need to book the photographer as early as you can because you want to have the time to think of the weather, the place where you ant to take your engagement photos, love story video (if you want), and other things that you have in mind.
  4. Church/Ceremony place: these places book fast as well, now I had 3 churches in mind but I chose one of them and talked to the priest and everything was booked and was done and over with.

These 4 points are seriously the most important things in the wedding, they are like your foundation to the wedding, you cant have one and not have the other. So Book them as soon as you can so you don’t have to worry about them. I posted some photos from our photographer, that captured the pre-wedding photos, singer and band.

PLANNING A BIG WEDDING (Part 1)

I am going to make several topics on Wedding Planning. As you know I got married to my Prince on May 22, 2016, and this planning was a roller coaster ride, I learned a lot, and stressed a lot. Being a Bride is hard, I used to find it weird when Brides are crampy, or emotional, or even mean. Listen, to the Brides to be out there that are reading this, everything at the end will work out, don’t stress the small things or the big things, you will be fine and you will be the most beautiful bride on your day. So, now let me go through what I will discuss in today’s topic, which is How Do I Start?

How do I Start planning the most amazing day of my life?

THE 3 MOST IMPORTANT STEPS

1. Pick a Venue – Picking a Venue, can basically round up your budget, because it will be the most expensive thing that you MOST HAVE.
2. Figure out your budget – From the previous point above, you can now estimate what your budget will be, also the amount of guest you will be inviting.
3. Pick the date picking the wedding date is hard, because you need to know when you should have your wedding, and if you are thinking of spending less you can chose between Fridays and Sundays. If you don’t care, then you can go with Saturday, also keep in mind the weather. For me, I want it to be a nice weather not too hot and not too cold and thought May is the prettiest months here in Canada. Also, Photography depends on a nice day, someone told me before that when it’s too sunny out the photos don’t come out as nice, also all the brides imperfections come out (Aka concealed acne). Don’t pick a date that’s closer than 6 – 8 months, give yourself time to plan it, because trust me when you rush plan anything it will show.

So now that you know what you need to keep in mind, you can start planning everything based on these 3 things, because, these won’t change, or hopefully won’t change.
