The Most Enjoyable Elements of Wedding Planning!

When you're planning your wedding, there are lots of things to get right which all need to come together on the day. During the early days of planning, creating that list of what you need to buy, who you need to book and what you need to do can make things run much more smoothly since you can tick things off as you go. The last thing you want to do is overlook something and end up rushing around at the last minute! Some of these tasks will be quick and easy, but others will require more planning and savings money. Here are a few things that you'll need to think about carefully, but can actually be the most fun  elements of wedding planning.

You're going to want to decorate your venue to make it personal to your big day, and to get this right means having a strong idea of theme before you start. It's possibly one of the first things you'll want to consider anyway, so that you can make sure that you have a clear idea of what the day is going to look like. Have a look on Pinterest for themes, it could be anything from rustic farmhouse style to Hollywood glam. Your colours, the style of your dress and even the venue itself will all depend on the kind of theme and vibe you want to depict. When you have decided, you then need to come up with a plan for decorating on the day itself. Often, couples will do it themselves piece by piece the day before, and sometimes the venue organizers will help. As long as you know who is going to make it happen, that is the most important thing.

Your dress will be right at the top of your list from the very start, and it’s definitely one of the first (and most exciting!) elements of putting your wedding together. Walking down the aisle in the dress of your dreams is something you've probably imagined since you were little, and the way you feel in your gown plays a huge role in how you'll feel about your wedding day overall. Getting into your dress with your bridesmaids on hand is one of those wedding day bride traditions which are a lot of fun, but primarily you need to have a dress that you're actually looking forward to wearing. In many respects, it is the most important dress you will ever wear, so it’s something that you should think about as early as possible. If you want a very expensive dress for example then you'll need to save, and if you want to lose a significant amount of weight to wear the gown of your dreams then this is something that can take months to achieve.

It's nice to provide some forms of entertainment for your guests in the evening, it makes your wedding as enjoyable for them as it is for you and your partner. There are some obvious options, and usually when it comes to this the most traditional are the easiest and most successful, so are worth considering. A DJ will get people up and dancing in the evening, or you might prefer the idea of having a live band instead, in which case you should look into finding one that is going to provide the kind of music you're after. A photo booth is a fun wedding reception idea and can also be another way to get some fun pictures of the day. You could provide fireworks, a cocktail station, a chocolate fountain, games- the list is endless.

If there is one part of the day that people tend to remember, it’s the food. People expect amazing food at weddings, and the truth is that finding food or your wedding day is one of the more enjoyable parts of planning. There are lots of options, from simple and casual buffets to food trucks to serve yourself type stations and sit down meals. It all depends on your budget and the style of your wedding. You should ask people to RSVP their dietary requirements, so that none of it comes as a surprise.
