Afraid and stressed that something will go wrong on your wedding day? You’re not alone. Fear of the unexpected is one of the most common causes of anxiety and pre-wedding jitters among brides-to-be who are about to start planning their weddings. Fears and nightmares of ‘will my wedding day turn out successful?’ You may start feeling that something or many things would go wrong on the wedding day. …that the planning would flop. …that some wedding vendors may show up late or not show up at all (and your guests would laugh at you). …that you’ll be too fat or ugly in your wedding dress. …that your VIP guests will not show up. Brides-to-be worry and fear about so many things that could make their wedding day far from becoming flawless. In this post, you will learn about a few simple things you can do to guarantee that your wedding planning will work, and that your big day will be as perfect as you dreamed it to be. Read on for the 6 things you can do to plan a successful wedding that wows guests in Nigeria (or anywhere at all).
#1. The Two Keys to Planning a Successful Wedding
Here are the two keys (secrets) to weddings that turn out perfect and wow guests: planning and coordination – (a) pre-wedding-day planning and (b) on-the-day-of-wedding coordination. And you also plan how to coordinate the day of the wedding.
Since a wedding involves many different activities and logistics, you need (i) pre-wedding planning – to detail out everything that will lead to the wedding day and (ii) coordination on the wedding day – to direct and ensure that all your plans take place seamlessly, and that the everyone involved in the planning process are singing the same tune.
#2. Wedding Checklists with Timeline Will Make Your Life Easier
Brides-to-be go crazy and cranky almost every day of their wedding planning, just at the thought of all the many different things to do and remember when preparing for a wedding. I’ve heard brides tell me how they just hate ‘everyday’ and wish that the wedding would just come quickly and go. But it doesn’t have to be like that for you.
One of the first things you do when planning your wedding is to draw up a ‘to do’ list, and persons and times to do them. That’s your wedding checklist, somewhat like the big picture masterplan of your wedding. With wedding planning, having a wedding planning checklist is that masterplan for you. The wedding checklist should include a timeline, to guide you through the pre-wedding planning process. That’s what event and wedding planners use to stay sane, organized and on top of every little wedding detail.
It’s that important because you’re human and it’s so easy to forget a couple of important wedding to-dos when you have tons of details to remember and tons of people to deal with. Having a wedding checklist made is a way to get organized without getting burned out. Guessing for what to do next is the worst idea for a bride-to-be.
If you have a wedding planner, s/he will make a checklist for working on your wedding, but if not, you can use our read-made, easy to follow wedding planning checklists below:
