Your wedding day is arguably one of the most frequent fantasies that cross your mind on a day-to-day basis because, until the big day arrives, you have no idea how it will look, feel like, or go.
When you are marrying the love of your life, you only have one shot at a beautiful and memorable wedding day. This piles huge amounts of pressure on your shoulders to make sure it goes well, and everyone is happy.
The problem with everyone’s wedding day is that it is expected to be perfect. When you have one shot at it, and with all your family and friends watching, you want to make sure that every detail is accounted for.
Of course, the irony of this approach is that it will never be perfect. You will always spot details that are amiss, or experience moments that are not fun or romantic. This is the brutal reality of planning an event which many people are attending.
You must compromise, and that’s perfectly fine. In fact, by accepting that your wedding day won’t be perfect, you will enjoy it more. After all, every incredible memory you have is likely imperfect, and that’s what makes it magical.
With that being said, here is some advice to help you plan your fairy-tale wedding:
Nail the Dress Code
One of the most critical factors of any successful wedding is the aesthetics of the event. You will likely have an image in your mind of how you want the event to look, the accessories, and the theming which lines the room.
However, what you can’t overlook is the dress code of you, your partner, and your guests. This needs to be coherent and reflect the type of wedding you want to have.
For instance, you need to get the right wedding dress for you, and the right outfit for your partner, and make sure that all the guests are coherent with this aesthetic.
Choose the Perfect Location
The next step to planning your fairy-tale wedding is to pick the right location. This is arguably the most vital decision because it doesn’t just impact you and your partner, but the entirety of the guest list.
As a result, you need to choose a location which is both desirable and practical. Opting for a church on the other side of the world might be a ‘fairy-tale’ but it will annoy all the guests and result in a tiny attendance.
Furthermore, you need to pick a clear theme before you start looking at locations so that you can narrow down the list of options to those which are congruent with your theme.
Make Sure You Invite the Right People
Last but certainly not least, you need to ensure that you are inviting the right group of people. After all, it will be the atmosphere that defines how dreamlike the day is, and you don’t want to face family politics, arguments among guests, or any other animosity.
Therefore, choose your guests wisely, and reflect on how they might interact with one another before inviting them all.
