There are many must-haves for weddings, and any simple Google search will give a laundry list of things that need to happen if your big isn’t going to be one big humiliating disaster. However, there are higher on a priority list than others – for instance, the colors of the venue’s walls aren’t as important as the dress, the guest list is not as important as your happiness, and the weather is not as important as the photographer.
So, to help you make the best decisions possible here is a much short list of some of the most important, high-tier must-haves for any modern wedding.
As a starting point, you are going to need to make sure that you are not scrimping on the catering. This can help your guests enjoy your wedding and it can be a great way to make sure that they feel appreciated. You might find that you are having to cater to a range of appetite and dietary requirements, so you are going to need to find the best professional wedding catering to fit your needs. Getting this bit right is easy as you are letting someone else take care of it, and then you can move on to other things.
Your wedding is going to need to have a theme. After all, it makes planning somewhat easier if you have some sort of theme that you want to follow. Something as simple as color can help you to communicate what you have in mind, such as a red and white wedding, is a good place to start. If you have a specific theme in mind, you can have a better shot at creating a wedding that works aesthetically and gives the guests more of an idea of what to expect, and what you expect from them.
Your photographer is next on the list. You are going to need to source a photographer that you get along with and find that you can communicate your ideas. It makes the photography element of your wedding day far less stressful, and it can help you to get photos that are effortless and timeless. You will find that getting a good photographer will also help your pictures look far more genuine, too, rather than the staged shots you might see on your parents’ and grandparents’ walls.
Last but by no means least, you need to come up with a realistic budget. This is important if you are already a bit low on cash, and the best thing that you can do in this situation to do lots of planning and make sure that you are still getting the best quality for the lowest price. You will find that weddings are already quite extortionate, so you are going to need to make sure that you are finding as many ways as possible to help you save money without cutting corners.
