Wedding checklist !
Do you have it in hand? It is a must to make your wedding day dreamlike.
Most of you feel stressed when your wedding plans go awry. Chaotic planning can make you feel miserable on your D day.
You can make it a memorable day if only you plan it properly.
There are many event organizers who look after the A to Z of your marriage. You can discuss with them your expectations and also your budget.
In my personal view there is no true excitement when someone else takes over the planning of your wedding.
When you plan it with your spouse the experience is thrilling and enthralling.
- But you should have a checklist.
- You should plan beforehand.
- You should discuss your individual tastes.
- You should be alert of the missing links in your marriage plans.
Every religion has different types of rituals and traditions. If both are from the same religion the rituals are bound to be the same. But if you from diverse religion you should follow neutral rituals which would not hurt the feelings of anybody.
Top 10 wedding checklist – makes your D day memorable
The most important aspect of your wedding is your budget. Unless you work out the total cost of every aspect of your wedding you might be caught midway without money for essential things.
- Wedding dress
This is the most beautiful aspect of your wedding. All eyes are going to be on you. So you should analyze the color, accessories, your hairstyle, jewels and even your shoes to the minute detail.
Buy your wedding dress at least a month before the wedding. See whether the dress fits you properly. An ill-fitting dress can totally spoil your appearance.
When you choose the color of the dress make sure that it enhances your looks. Certain colors can literally make you look dull and drab. The color of your dress should sync with dress color of your spouse.
3. Make up.
It is very essential to have a trial make up. You should have a frank talk with the beautician about your preferences.
Do not think that high end beauticians do make up perfectly. It is a very wrong assumption.
I went in for a very high end beautician for my daughter’s engagement. The money they demanded was exorbitant. I was ready to pay what they demanded as I wanted perfection. But they made a mess of her make up.
I became very careful for her wedding day. We fixed her friend as the make-up artist for her wedding and reception. Believe me! Her charges were very cheap. She made my daughter look like a princess. Almost every guest commented how gorgeous she looked. So you should be very careful in choosing your makeup artist.
Yet another important aspect of your marriage! The food should be tasty and good. Discuss a menu which includes dishes to cater to the taste of everyone. Tell the caterers that you expect good taste and cleanliness.
5. Guest list
This is where most of you go wrong. You tend to forget many important people if you do not prepare the list of guests to be invited. Go to very close relatives in person. Give a call to friends\relatives who live very far away. Explain to them the reasons you are unable to come in person. Cordially invite them for the wedding.
6. The venue of your wedding
Your venue can be a wedding hall. It can be an open space. It can be a church. It can be a temple. Come to a mutual decision with your spouse. Do not select a place which is too far from the place you live in. The transportation cost could add up on the total wedding budget.
This is yet another aspect which adds glamour and beauty to your wedding. You should select a decorator who knows his work. He should have the knack of understanding your needs. Your decorations can be floral. It can be scenic. The choice is entirely yours.
You should choose what sort of a band you like. Do not make it too noisy as you cannot interact with the guests. Peppy music can make the atmosphere very youthful.
You cannot personally look after all the guests. The guests feel offended when they are not looked after. If you have volunteers all guests will be taken care of. Your guests are satisfied.
Just because it is last in the wedding checklist it does not mean it is the least. This is yet another most important aspect of your wedding. It is the everlasting remembrance of your wedding. You show your grandchildren how you looked on your wedding day. Select the best photographer. There is the pre wedding shoot, the wedding, and the post wedding shoot.
Your D day should be a D day in the true sense of the word. When you have your wedding checklist you will never miss the important things.
