The process of planning any event is always hard but when it comes to planning your wedding – the struggle is real. There are so many things and people involved in planning your perfect day which can actually make it difficult for you to keep track of the overall progress. In order to have a smooth planning phase, we have drafted 20 rules for you to follow. These rules will help you to remember some important details that you might have forgotten otherwise.

1. Don’t invite someone to your wedding if you don’t want to!

Why invite somebody under pressure if you are not willing to invite them at first. You need to have an open conversation with your family about the guest list size.

2. Invite your guests to a wedding in style

This is an important one to follow. Your guest needs to be respected, never send them informal, half-hearted wedding invitations through a text message or by using social media. Your guests should feel excited to attend your big day.

8. Special attention to your stage décor

The stage at a wedding acts as a backdrop of your happily ever after, so it should look like a class apart. It’s important to blend the décor of the stage with that of the venue’s so it’s not too conflicting or overdone. The lightning also needs to be right for the photographs to come out beautiful and to balance the overall theme of the function!

9. Don’t Go For The Wedding Color Scheme That You Don’t Like

This is about your special day; why should you follow a trendy color scheme just because it is trending. Go for the color scheme that you genuinely like for your wedding décor or also the one that reflects your personality. Wedding guests always look forward to personalized ceremonies.

10. Always Have a Contingency Plan

Having an alternative plan is one of the traits of smart people and we want you to be smart when it comes to wedding planning. The contingency plan will help you to face any uncertain wedding related situations without distress, may it be a cake disaster or cold feet before the wedding.

11. Decide Your Wedding Décor Early

As soon as the wedding dates are fixed one starts thinking about how they want their big day to turn out. Say you want your wedding to be rustic or maybe want an outdoor day function – you will need time to make the right arrangements for whatever you decide with. The sooner you decide the theme of your wedding décor, the better it will pan out, after all, who knows maybe there are some last minute changes and even for them to be made you need time!

12. Don’t Go For Tall Centerpieces

Always bear this in your mind; choose your centerpieces according to your table size and general wedding décor. If you want to have a tall centerpiece, then it should be placed in such a way that it doesn’t cause a problem for your guests.

13. Always Have A Communication Plan

Such plans are important when something unexpected happens. Assign your most trusted friend or family member to communicate and resolve any rising issue by themselves or with help.

14. Coordination Between Your Wedding Vendors

The success of any event lies in how people work and communicate together. To have a smooth wedding ceremony, you need to have a proper meeting with all of your wedding vendors in one place. This will help you open the communication channel between them, which will make the coordination even much easier for them.

15. Don’t Go For Out-Of-The Season Wedding Menu

The weather must be taken into account when you are finalizing your wedding menu. You cannot set up a hot drink station in summer, or lemonade in winter. Whatever cuisine you pick for your big day, make time to think over the seasonal best dishes and availability of the ingredients required.
