Sometimes, it takes a village. This holds true specially when it comes to organizing a wedding. If you have not yet gone through the tough ordeal of organizing it, you should consider a helping hand. What are friends for? You can always divide the work with your closest and most responsible friends who you know would not take the work lightly. Make list of tasks that do not require your presence. Distribute those tasks so that it is fun for both bride and groom and their families. Let us help!
Discuss the tasks
The bride and groom should discuss and divide the tasks between each other so that it is easier to avoid confusion as to who is doing what. Divide tasks such as choosing the venue, caterer, photographer, and wedding planner. Lets leave behind the myth that the bride and her family do it all!
Taste and Color
Your and your partner’s taste should be kept in mind before deciding on anything. What kind of cuisine do you want to include? What kind of decoration would be best? What color should the flowers be? What kind of stage and seats you would prefer? If communication is good, obligation becomes fun. It will not make you feel like you have accomplished something together, but also gives you a chance to understand each other’s taste well.
Respect the opinion
It is very important that you respect each other’s opinion. One should not do the opposite of what the other wants. The idea is that you be satisfied with all the things your partner is doing.
Share all the information
Communication is key. Share pictures of places or things you want so you can decide together. You can use WhatsApp, skype for sharing your images live, or you can create a drop-box account and put pictures there.
If you want to get the information on a venue and its menu, or a photographer’s quote and packages, ask them to email you. This gives you more time to think and both you and your partner can access the same information. You can also create a separate email account which you and your partner both manage.
Ask for help when needed!
Don’t take more tasks more than you can handle. It is a time for having fun. Get your friends and family to help you with decisions and distribute the tasks among everybody. Avoid stress so that you can have time for more important things, like dreaming about your wedding day !
Love is the most important thing about your wedding and you don’t want to spoil it with small misunderstandings. Remember that every difference in opinion is just another step towards knowing each other. Stay away from arguments and avoid making decisions for each other without communication. You do not want to start your life together with any bumps in the road.
Don’t get impatient. Things take time to be completed. Organizing a wedding is a long process. As people say, Rome was not built in a day.
