When it comes to your wedding, you know that you’re going to have a whole lot of decisions to make. Sometimes, you can find this incredibly overwhelming. But that doesn’t always have to be the case. In fact, sometimes, you’re going to want to be very blunt about things. Not every decision will need a lot of mulling over. There are some things that you will just know. And these are always the decisions that you want to get out of the way early. Because when you do, you’ll often find that later decisions are so much easier to make as a result. Sound great? Of course it does. So let’s consider some of the key decisions you’re going to want to make early on.
Home Or Away
First of all, it’s the biggie – where you want the wedding to be. Now, the venue decisions themselves can actually take a little more time (unless you’ve always known where you want to get married). But when you’re thinking about the actual overall location, you can do this quite quickly. One of the biggest overall decisions here is whether you want to get married close to home or even overseas. If you’ve always dreamt of a destination wedding, then you know that this is one of your biggest decisions dealt with.
Then, there’s the guest list. Again, the intricate details of the guest list will require a bit more thought, but the overall shape of it should be easy to work out. Do you want a huge wedding or something more intimate? Do you want to invite children or should it stay adults only? These are the kind of yes or no answers you can give right away. So set the tone early on with your guest list to make later decisions easier.
Another really simple decision for you should be how you want to look and feel on the day. You’ll know if you want to go classic and natural or glamorous and over the top. So start your preparations early. As you’ll see, according to this timeline, there’s a lot to work through. So making your decisions on the look early on will help everything else fall into place.
The budget should be easy enough for you to decide on. Well, a ballpark anyway. When it comes to your wedding budget and finance you have to be realistic. And choose something you’re happy with. You’ll know what you can afford and what you want to spend, so get this in mind early and it will give you set options for every area of the wedding.
Last but definitely not least, there’s also the theme to be thinking about. If you want to be sure that you can make all of the decisions relatively easy, you need to pick a theme. When you opt for shabby chic or vintage glamour, or any other style of theme, you should find that it’s much easier to make other decisions. Food, decor, music, and other options all fit into your key theme, so it’s kind of like you have less to think about when you’re working with a theme.
