There are thousands of things that you must take into account to organise a wedding; so many that sometimes we forget some or overlook them. Here are 7 things you should keep in mind so that your wedding organisation will be easier and everything goes well.
- First things first
Define the critical elements of your wedding, starting with choosing the place where it will be. You might consider one of the excellent Oxford wedding venues available, some of the best places in the area that you can find for your wedding, with a wide variety of services and expert advice.
- The central theme
Define what kind of wedding you want. This decision will depend on the couple and will be the basis to choose the place, the decoration, and other details of the wedding. Try to make the theme clear and also ensure that the different elements come together in a coherent manner.
Color plays a major role in establishing the theme of a wedding. Pick colors that are meaningful, and then brainstorm as many ways as possible to tie those colors into the wedding—the flowers, the table settings, the centerpieces, the drapery, the bridesmaids dresses … even the groomsmen socks!
- A good dish = an unforgettable wedding
The menu that you will offer at your wedding will be very important. Think carefully at the time of making the budget to determine a specific amount for this, according to your choice of food, and respect it so that other aspects of your wedding expenditure are not affected. Choose a place that offers an integral catering service, or has recommendations on hiring a professional catering service as this will help you avoid any potential problems.
- Faithful to you
Before looking at current trends in weddings, think about yourself, your personality and what characterises you, so you can choose a style that is true to you (both of you!). The details of your wedding should be related to things that both of you like, and you can customise the party according to your personal tastes. This will be more significant for everyone than simply following the fashion at the moment.
Making a minute-by-minute schedule and keeping to it is virtually impossible, but it will help you to organise the times of each event, reduce unnecessary waiting, and last-minute worries. By all means, allow the day to flow naturally, but keep your mind open to unforeseen events.
- Lighting, the touch that changes everything
The ambience of the venue will depend greatly on the lighting. Give priority and greater visibility, where necessary, with the help of focused lighting in the spaces to which you want to draw the attention of your guests. Use dimmed lighting at tables, and something innovative on the dance floor.
- Dance classes
Many couples may not feel so comfortable when it comes to that first song, the first dance as a married couple. Well, there’s nothing better to reduce the stress of preparing for a wedding than to attend dance classes together, blow off some steam, and on your big day you’ll rock that first dance!
Keep these 7 things in mind and the organisation of your wedding will become a somewhat simpler and more enjoyable matter.
