Important Dos's And Don'ts In WeddingsImportant Dos's And Don'ts In Weddings

Weddings are supposed to be among the most joyous events in a couple's life. However, there are just certain instances when the event becomes less than perfect because of how some things do not go as planned. There are also certain behaviours among the couple or the guests that might ruin a wedding. This is why it is important that before organising a wedding, you have to know what you should do and how to do the planning properly. This way, you will not encounter the common problems that haunt other weddings. You would not want your wedding to fail. There are some big dos and don'ts that you have to put to mind.

• Do cooperate with each other as the bride and groom. This is an event where both of you will be the centre of the ceremony. It is only right that you make your decisions together. From the wedding until the rest of your life, you will be sharing things. This also means that you just have to meet halfway about what you both need and want. The wedding can serve as a good start for you both to show a united front.

• Make a working schedule. Put target dates for each task that you have to do in preparation for the wedding. To avoid stress, plan each task carefully and do it months before the big day.

• Take note of entertaining the core elements to your wedding first, such as the marriage license, wedding dress and wedding reception. Everything that needs to be booked must be booked way ahead of the wedding.

• Set a realistic budget that you should follow faithfully.

• Be organised by taking down notes of everything. When you are settling a contract with a vendor, write everything down.

• Keep tab of everything. You can do this by making a wedding binder where you put all the papers and receipts to monitor your expenses. Make it a habit to keep all your receipts, contracts and other notes or written materials.

• Let other family members and friends help you in wedding preparations or in entertaining the guests on the big day itself.

• Be punctual in appointments.

• Be flexible.

• Plan the seating arrangement carefully and acknowledge sore spots between your guests.

• Set the music to your ceremony and the pictorial time.

• Have fun at you wedding with loved ones and friends.

• Make a list of all the people who gave gifts and send them all thank you cards.

• Avoid procrastination.
• Do not assume too much especially for everything to be perfect.
• Avoid pleasing everyone.
• Do not rush the planning.
• Do not decide based on the cheapest price of everything.
• Do not hire experts without researching about them or comparing several people.
• Do not invite too many guests when you cannot afford to.
• Do not spend all your time greeting everyone. You can talk to them on the dance floor.
• Do not be afraid to speak up when you don't like something in the plans.
• Do not drink alcohol before the ceremony.
• Do not spray any perfume for outdoor weddings.
