The biggest and most important part of wedding planning is to have a clear vision of your dream wedding. There are many ways to achieve staying organized with your inspirations, ideas, and overall planning. I personally found Pinterest to be the most effective and convenient option to create my 'vision board'. I started off with numerous boards, each for a specific purpose. I had one for every category like decorations, hair styles, makeup, jewelry, outfit ideas, etc. Then I pinned pictures that inspired me and things that resembled what I wanted my wedding to look like. As the planning process continued, it was easier for me to show vendors a visual of exactly what I wanted or at least something that was similar. This helped eliminate any confusion, frustration, or second guessing.
Quality vs Quantity
It is crucial to know which is important where. Many aspects of the wedding will fall entirely on quality or quantity, and the rest somewhere in-between. For instance, renting chairs for the event is going to come down to quantity, where as choosing a florist will be heavily weighted on quality. The in-between is ultimately for prioritizing and staying within a budget.
Ladies, this is NOT the time to experiment with hair, makeup, and outfit(s). Stick with hair and makeup that enhances your facial features and makes you feel beautiful. And same goes for wedding outfit(s), choose silhouettes that makes you feel the most confident and comfortable but also flatters your body shape.
This is YOUR day. You are in the process of making your dream wedding into a reality. Stick to your vision, be precise and specific of what you want and need for that day. But avoid becoming BRIDEZILLA!
Budget, the one thing that keeps us in check and helps us prioritize. Research is key to get the most bang for your buck. This where all of the other tips come into play on deciding what your budget should look like for you dream wedding and what to spend where during that day.
