Planning a party for a couple of hundred people would be difficult under any circumstances, but when the party is your own wedding it takes on a whole new level of difficulty. You will have to prepare yourself and make sure that the ceremony goes accordingly also. Shopping for your dress and making sure that the bridesmaids have the right colors and dresses is enough work for anyone, but you also must be concerned with a host of other things.
It’s a good idea to find a wedding planning book and keep track of all of your planning activities in a binder that is used strictly for the wedding. A day planner can help you to keep track of your appointments and fittings that must be done before the wedding. You should get together with your wedding party regularly so that you can divide the tasks and not take on everything on your own. Give some of the errands and simple jobs to the bridesmaids and members of your family.
A plan of action is the only way to get through a job as large as a wedding. You must have a list of the tasks that you need to finish and a place to keep your information together in one place. A good guide that comes in a wedding planning book will help you understand what should be included in your wedding planning appointment book. Wedding planning is a great deal like project management. There is a desired outcome and a list of jobs that will bring that goal closer and closer.
Try to be organized when you are planning a big wedding. It is the only way that you are going to get through the planning stages of your wedding. Don’t get overwhelmed and let someone help you with the tasks that must be accomplished. It is easy to think that you must handle everything on your own, but you should let some of the smaller decisions go and only handle them from a final decision standpoint. The legwork can be done by anybody.
