Rank your priorities.
If you want to have your wedding planned out in all of the best ways, then you need to make sure that you figure out what your priorities are. Tier or rank them based on the things that are jointly important to you and to your partner so far. Talk about the things that tend to matter the most to you. Talk about preferences and what your main goals are so far. If you don’t really know what your priorities are, then you might end up with something that is totally different what you have initially wanted to accomplish in the first place and this can be disastrous so far so you need to get something done about this when it all comes down to it. It would be wise for you to sit down and list those priorities down so that you can get them figured out together. It doesn’t have to be impossibly difficult or anything like that. You can pull anything off with the proper focus and planning. You might want to prioritize having a great venue as well as a great professional female wedding photographer onboard as these can be crucial to the success of the wedding that is being planned out so far.
Recruit your friends.
You have very talented friends. You just need to really acknowledge that and channel those talents so that they can help you out or be of use to you and to your partner during the wedding planning process and during the day of the wedding itself. An open invitation like this can be appealing especially if your friends are interested in seeing things through for you. go for people who are supportive and who will really cross mountains for you. Make them an active part of the planning process. It’s different when you have people around you who care for you and for your best interests. Although having professionals in nice and is a must, it helps to have friends to will do everything to make things easy for you in the end of it all.
Be relentless with the headcount.
Tirelessly go over the wedding guest list again and again so that you know exactly what to expect and you know exactly what your costs will turn out to be. It isn’t easy and it is bound to be a headache but you will surely reap the benefits of it somewhere down the road. If people don’t RSVP right away, call them and confirm accordingly. This effort will not go to waste because it means that you have a firmer grasp of what you have up ahead of you so far at the end of the day.
Embrace the off season bookings.
This comes as no surprise, of course. The leaner the months are, the lower the rates will be for the professionals working in the wedding industry. This is the perfect opportunity for you to tap into if you want to save a couple of hundred dollars or so. Your female wedding photographer might even throw in some freebies if you get lucky.
