Maintain Your Vision

Planning a wedding is a huge undertaking especially if you are on a tight budget. Having said that, the most important thing to focus on is the big picture. Take the time to elaborate your wedding vibe by creating goals and priorities. What is the first step you may ask? Take a little time to dream. Daydream about how you want your wedding to be. Write down all the important aspects and details. And hone in on your core values that make it your wedding. Once you have your list, make sure you include size, setting, style, vibe, and timeline. These details will become some of the biggest factors in determining how your wedding will play out.

One exceptional way to narrow down your vibe is to consider why you want to get married in the first place. Is it to wear the pretty clothes, have a huge party, bring family together, or celebrate the union of love? You can put your focus on the details that bring out the florals in your dress. If it’s bringing family together then consider a venue in the middle of all the travel as well as one that specializes in party settings that include everyone. Celebrating your union of love could include ceremony details such as a sand joining. These ideas are all part of developing your motivation. 

Keep a planner to document all ideas and notes you want to remember throughout your planning experience. Right down the values you want to establish as well as the over all goal. Taking opinions of others lightly as they could deter you from your dream. The goals is to make the wedding a reflection of you and your partner, so it’s important to block out unnecessary noise. Another tip is to make a list of your priorities and compare with your partner. Look for overlapping values and ways to compromise. This is also important for the inevitable budget talk.

With everything to consider during this life altering event, remember to have fun. The two love birds are celebrating their unconditional and passionate love, right? So always make fun and happiness the goal so the wedding planning doesn’t feel like a chore. Include each other in all aspects of the planning and find ways to make it about love and fun.
