D H Bridal Designs, Tailoring and Tutoring Services has done the Research for you…

1.Know Your Wedding Day Budget

The first thing to do is to sit down with pen and paper, word document or an wedding planning app, If you don’t know how much you have to spend in mind or even estimated out by doing some research on your main priorities for the day. You wont be able to plan and deliver the rest.

2.Research What You Want Your Day to Look Like

Do you want a church or barn etc. to facilitate the main ceremony? Do you want outfits and wedding apparel to match the main venue colour theme? How much does an average wedding cost? and How much are the local venues? these are all questions you want to have answers for among many more and this will also be a good update and background for you to base your budget on, as you go.

3.Draw on all of Your Resources

Who do you know (that you would also invite!) that would be able to participate and contribute to the day? – everyone needs to save money no matter how wealthy you are and also its a great way for people to feel valued, helpful and included on your big day. Do you know a baker? A photographer? A seamstress? A graphic designer? A driver? Anyone really good with arts and crafts – for flower arrangements, table decorations etc.

4.Make Lists and Notes

As well as having a diary to hand, start planning away, usually a visual mood board is required first and this will give you a happy feeling and focus on what you want the whole day to blossom into, it can be stressful so a vision will help you feel motivated and joyful. Mood boards will generally have your clothing tastes, colour themes, flower styles, venue decor within it. The lists and plans should have quotes from services and suppliers, and all the things you need to order and buy for the day – don’t forget to budget for drinks and table wear. I found the following link helpful: https://www.hitched.co.uk/wedding-planning/organising-and-planning/50-free-wedding-ideas/ – very good for ideas to keep guests happy and entertained with saving money at the heart of it.

5.Make Your Wedding Invite List

Start with family and friends of your spouse and your contact list. Remember not all family and friends get on well and so finding tables for them specifically managed would be priority. You could just mix families and friends up in a strategic way for instance your brother to sit with your spouses sister for example and then add some friends and elder members of the party in. Remember to budget for these peoples drinks and food too.

6. Book Your Venue

The venue cost the most and so is priority. Make sure you know whether you need a bar or not, kitchen use or and just table wear storage and use.

7.Book Your Services

Choose your service providers, will you be using many friends of family members for free or paying them a lower price than a professional? Services required should be considered as the following:- A Priest, wedding decor hire for the venue (usually includes linen and table wear, including flower arrangements), Hospitality Staff, Drivers, Photographers, Dress Makers, Bakers, Invite makers (Graphic Designers etc.).

8. Buy Your Apparel and Accessories

Get your most desired dresses, and suits bought and fitted, make sure to budget for alterations as you will want that very well fitted for your day and pictures.
