Have you ever seen a bride freaking out a day before her wedding? It’s probably because her plans were not going as she wanted. We cannot blame her for being dramatic. The weight of having the perfect wedding, which comes only once in her life is nerve-racking, especially when she is planning it herself.
If you are a bride-to-be and planning to put your personal touch to the wedding, we are here to help you plan this through. Follow our lead, you will feel more relaxed than stressed.
The early bird will always catch the juiciest worm. Now that sounded off, but you get my drift right? Juiciest worms would include the availability of your preferred photographer, flowers, venue, and decorators.
For example, if you don’t plan early, the venue which you have been eyeing for a long time won’t be available by the time you step out. So unless you want to end up with second-best of everything, catch those wriggly worms.
WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING
When you are planning to visit venues, choose the caterers and decorators, and musicians, it is constructive to take notes on what they offer, how much they charge and so on. The records will help you to compare and pick the one that fits your taste and budget.
FIND YOUR STYLE
Take some time and collect everything that you would love to add to your big day. Create a visionary board either on your computer or an old fashioned scrapbook.
You can get inspiring ideas from Instagram or Pinterest. You can show the approaches to the florists or vendors for a similar design.
ORGANISE YOUR IDEAS
Now you have taken notes of what you have in hand and an idea of what style you want, systematize them using spreadsheets, checklists, whatever you are comfortable with.

INCLUDE YOUR FIANCÉ
The groom deserves to give his opinion, after all, he is a vital part of the day. Whether he is interested in giving his ideas or has already given you the reins, this is a fun way to do things together. Work as a team; agree and disagree for the big day.
CHOOSE YOUR MENU
Most couples plan a menu that the people, in general, will enjoy, overlooking their choices. A selfless deed…sure, but that day is going to be about you and your fiancé. Pick items that will speak about your relationship, maybe a particular dish from a memorable date.
DECIDE ON THE VENUE
The venue for the wedding or reception is just as important as any other section on your plan. Fill in two criteria which will fall under how many guests you are expecting and what kind of wedding it is going to be.
CONSIDER YOUR BUDGET
If you are tight on budget, which most of us are, eliminate some segments from your list that are not necessary like, return gifts. While removing the items keep your reception area untouched, that is the place everyone will be spending most of the time.
HAVE FUN WHILE PLANNING
These tips will help you, but some worries are inevitable. The only stress buster for you and your team will be making it a fun planning. For every tick you mark on your checklist, celebrate it with pizza or wine. Remember, people will not forget the pleasure of working with you.
A day before your wedding, loosen up and distress yourself. Tomorrow is the big day, so today you pamper your body with a spa treatment, treat your mind with meditation or go swimming. Release your stress before going to bed; you will need a good night rest.
