10 Steps To A Priceless Wedding | Enchanted Celebrations

Congratulations! You have a partner who loves you, you have a ring on your finger, and you're about to start a new lifelong journey with your best friend. But before you start celebrating, you need to step in the world of wedding planning and plan, plan, plan! 

All brides dream of the most beautiful, perfect, and unique wedding day. From the perfect dress to the most elegant flowers, everything must be executed perfectly. However, pursuing the "perfect" wedding can certainly be pricey. When planning a dream wedding on a budget, there are ten steps you should keep in mind to achieve a priceless wedding: 

Step 1: Craft a vision for your priceless wedding.

Before planning, you need to have an idea of what you want. If you haven't already been day-dreaming about your perfect wedding day since you were a little girl, now is the time to start. What do you picture when you envision your family and friends celebrating you and your partner's love for each other? Is there a theme? Is there a color scheme? If you have no idea, it is a good idea to do some research to find what you would like your wedding to be like. 

Step 2: Determine your priorities.

Every bride has something they need for their wedding day. What is essential to your wedding day? What will make the day memorable? What will make your wedding unique? What will surprise guests? Most of all, what will make the day perfect for you?

Step 3: Draft a realistic budget.

When planning a wedding, it is extremely important to determine a budget, more importantly, a realistic budget. Unfortunately, it is very easy to get carried away when planning for your very own special day. But if you have a budget in mind, it will be much easier to plan accordingly so it's affordable. 

Step 4: Create a timeline.

If you create a timeline in advance, wedding planning will be much smoother and less stressful. It allows for more flexibility; nothing will be rushed, and you won't have to make last-minute decisions. Prepare, prepare, prepare! 

Step 5: Research your options.

Before making any decision, it is always a good idea to research your options. This will reassure your decision and allow you to be more comfortable with what you decide.

Step 6: Keep a wedding notebook or journal. 

When your planning your wedding, you are going to make several different decisions. To not lose track of your decision-making, write it down in a notebook or wedding planner. It is a good idea to keep folders for estimates and final decisions, jot down ideas that you brainstormed and notes of conversations with family, friends, and, more importantly, vendors. By doing this, you can compare options and ensure that you are making the best decision for your wedding day. 

Step 7: Track all costs, deposits, and payments.

A great way to prevent overspending is by keeping track of all costs, deposits, and payments. This ensures that you are not overspending in one area without cutting back on another. Keep receipts and contracts in a safe place. Don't forget to read the fine print. 

Step 8: Finalize all of the details.

You will have to finalize all the details. This is when you decide on the invitations and when to send them, the flowers, the officiant, the vows, and the final guest list. 

Step 9: Execute with ease.

The last thing the bride or groom needs is to worry about having to cue the music for the walk down the aisle. In order to ensure that everything will go as planned, delegate as many tasks and responsibilities as possible to someone you trust. By doing this, you can bask in the love of your future spouse, friends, and family, both on and leading up to the big day.

Step 10: Relax and enjoy your wedding.

Planning a wedding is time-consuming and stressful. That's why it is important to remember to breathe on your wedding day. Relax enough to fully experience the day that you labored so hard over to make sure it is as special as you imagined. Believe it or not, the day will be here and gone before you know it.
