Mind the Details: Planning for Your Dream Wedding

Couples wanting the dreamiest wedding start with the two most important things: where and when. Even after you have sorted out the date and location, not all things will fall in place. A distinctive wedding needs mindful planning.

The first thing to do is to know your vision. This will keep you on track to turn the wedding of your dreams into reality. Make your mood board before you seek help from your friends, professional wedding organizers, or coordinators.

Details to Build Your Vision

Every detail must speak and mean something to you for this unique event. These must be close to your heart. Here are some suggestions to consider in your checklist to make your wedding personal.

Precious Heirlooms

It is a privilege to honor family history and traditions before moving on to the next chapter of your life. Heirlooms can be jewelry from your granny, the garter your mom used, and even the cake knife your parents used.

These are always significant and unique to every family. Use them as is, or think of ways to make them more significant.

A Unique Theme

Selecting a style can make your wedding classy because design elements will be cohesive. A motif and style set the mood, whether you like it strictly black tie, rustic and relaxed, or fun and casual. Concepts for themes can be personalized by adding elements that reflect your hobbies and interests. If you need more great ideas, why not look here?

Your Favorite Flowers and Foliage

No wedding ceremony is complete without flowers and foliage. One tip for every couple: know what flowers are in season to guarantee availability. To those thinking about how to save, choose locally available flowers. Ask your florist about these when you start creating a mood board.

Detailed Decorations

Search online for decor concepts. Personalize your wedding with elements such as marquee letters, flower walls, sparklers, or lighting that can set the mood. Ensure that your decors create the mood and reflect your character. Decors can be minimalist and simple, romantic and sophisticated, or can suggest partying into the wee hours.

Meaningful Music

Make a list of the songs you love to include in the playlist. These may be the songs you first danced to or what was playing in the background when you first met.

You can hire musicians and bands for a classic touch. If you choose to go dancing after the formalities, get the whole package and get a DJ that can play your songs and keep the people on the dance floor.

Timeless Photos

Picking the right photographer does not only mean getting somebody to point and shoot. Every photographer processes photos differently– the final edit and layout matter. Take a look at online galleries of different photographers in your area. Your memories in print must be as lovely as the big day itself.

Another enjoyable way to record your special day is a photo booth for your guests. You may not be able to check on everyone during the wedding; however, photo booths are a great way to see how much your guests are having a blast.

The Takeaway

Create a wedding checklist that starts with conceptualization. Work on the big ones: the wedding and reception place, the guest list, and the theme. Include the tiny details into the big ones because these will make your big day truly one-of-a-kind.
