When couples start planning their wedding, we so often hear them say “well, what should I do?” or “what usually happens?” in response to questions.
So many couples feel that there is a particular way that a wedding should be structured and run which is based on past practices, traditions and the “done thing”.
However, this goes totally against what we believe.
For us at Iconic Weddings, we feel that your perfect wedding should be unique to you and should be structured to celebrate and emphasise who you are, what you love and the logistics you are operating with.
So where do you start?
Grab your partner, a pen and some paper and start by coming up with answers to the 4 questions below.
If you cannot come up with an agreed answer right now, don’t worry – you can play with that later.
1. When you think about your wedding day what do see?
(jot down ANYTHING from what you are wearing, what you are doing, what do you see, the time of day, etc)
2. What do you love and what is important to you?
3. How much money do you want to spend / have available to spend on your perfect wedding day?
4. How many people would you like there on the day?
(at this stage it just has to be a rough number. If this is too hard, consider an answer of ‘intimate, mid-sized or large guest list’)
With these answers in place, now start thinking about HOW you can design your day.
It is really important when you are doing this that you are not constrained by what you think your wedding day SHOULD look like based on what everyone else is doing or has done.
Your day is about you as a couple, so let it be a true reflection of who you are and what you love.
And if it is all too hard, we are always happy to sit down with you to help design your perfect day. Once you have this in place, you may find that you are off and racing with your planning.
