GET­TING mar­ried is one of the most mem­o­rable and ex­cit­ing mo­ments in life but more of­ten than not, as you plan for this won­der­ful day, you may ex­pe­ri­ence a few chal­lenges which will in­evitably af­fect your big day. Here are some tips on how you can cre­ate that bliss­ful wed­ding. Budget Com­mence with a cost es­ti­mate in line with your budget to avoid over­spend­ing. The wed­ding din­ner is likely to take up the big­gest por­tion of your ex­pen­di­ture, so pri­ori­tise this as­pect and in­cor­po­rate al­ter­na­tives to al­le­vi­ate the cost.

Among them in­clude con­sid­er­ing a venue that is pack­aged with a wed­ding plan­ner. Check­list For­mu­late a check­list and del­e­gate tasks among your fam­ily mem- bers and friends as this would as­sist to re­duce stress on yourself and your part­ner. An ef­fi­cient ban­quet team plays a vi­tal role in en­sur­ing that ev­ery­thing runs smoothly on your big day. Wed­ding theme Be­gin by brain­storm­ing mo­ments and things that you and your part­ner en­joyed to­gether as a cou­ple – be it a piece of art, a movie, a place or a hobby. In­spi­ra­tion of­ten comes while read­ing or rem­i­nisc­ing ro­man­tic mem­o­ries.

De­ter­mine the con­cept of your wed­ding theme and its colour pal­ette, which can be in­cor­po­rated into var­i­ous as­pects such as in­vi­ta­tions, dec­o­ra­tions, mu­sic and flow­ers. Venue De­cide on a con­cept of your wed­ding, whether it is an al fresco, in­door, cock­tail re­cep­tion or a sit-down din­ner.

Se­lect the venue with am­ple park­ing and is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble to your guests. Re­mem­ber to plan ahead as most of the venues in town are booked a year ahead. Dur­ing the wed­ding En­joy the oc­ca­sion and leave the rest to your fam­ily and friends to man­age. Don’t for­get to thank ev­ery­one who played a role in your wed­ding, be it a small or a big role, give them a warm hug.

Wish­ing you all the best in your new life en­deav­ours with your loved one and re­mem­ber to be calm al­ways. It is your big day so savour ev­ery mo­ment.
