Always put yourself first.
This is the time for you and for your partner to be a little selfish. Although it would be nice to consider what other people’s preferences are especially of those people happen to be close to you and mean a lot to you and your partner; it is still important that you get to prioritize your own preferences and what you want and need for the wedding before you consider what other people have to say about it. If certain traditions don’t really apply to you and if you feel as if they are a bit dragging and just overrated, there is no reason why you would want to go ahead with them in the first place. Prioritize what you want the most so that you are happy with the overall results so far. If there is any wedding photographer Hertfordshire that you would like to hire out and he tends to be a bit pricey, book him anyway. Splurge a little especially on major wedding vendors. You won’t regret it.
Consider your guests.
Even if you should put yourself first, you should still at the same time make sure that your guests for the wedding are well taken care of. There should be more than enough facilities to give them everything that they could possibly need so far.
Buy the dress before booking the venue.
This way, you can structure the entire wedding planning through and around that so far. Matching the wedding dress with the rest of all of the other wedding details so far will ensure that you have everything sorted out for you when it all comes down to it. Check out what your options are and look through them as much as possible.
Loop everyone in when announcing.
You might want to make sure that the people closest to you are talked to in person before you finally make the announcement public so far. Getting them to know that you are having plans of getting married through Facebook or something fairly public will make them feel left out and this is never the right way to go when you are planning to make people feel special and happy with the things that you are planning to incorporate in your wedding planning sessions and processes so far when it all comes down to it. Talk to your parents first and foremost before you move down to the rest of your siblings and your extended family and then finally, your closest friends. This is something that they will really get to appreciate at the end of the day and something that they will thank you for because you have made them feel special and made them feel as if they are a part of something bigger other than just being any other regular wedding guest out there. Your announcement can be a good thing. People will start to send recommendations your way from a wedding photographer Hertfordshire to a caterer to a planner and so on and so forth.
