Sometimes brides are excited about their lehenga and trousseau shopping and the grooms are thinking more about what drinks to put on the menu. Or maybe both of you love to dance at parties and also make your wedding an ultimate crazy affair with loads of dancing and craziness. Whatever top things you are most excited about your priority list should help you set your budget to further make your wedding-day decisions. If you’re still not sure on how to make decisions and what is more important to you then here are some tips that will help you get your priorities in order for your wedding day.
Start with making a list of all the components of your wedding functions
While deciding the top priorities of your wedding, it would be helpful for you to pen down a list with all the arrangements need to be done for all the functions and then give them ratings as per their importance. You can give five stars to most important and least to not important ones. Also, ask your partner to do the same so that you can compare your noted tasks and then discuss and even compromise if needed while looking at the ranks of wedding priorities. This may be one of the tensest conversations you will have with your partner while planning the wedding. There’s a possibility your priorities don’t align with your partner but discussing them will help you come to conclusions rather than having conflicts later. We know choosing priorities would not be easy but this step will surely help.
Then rank the tasks
You need to ask yourself about the top priorities of your wedding planning and how it will impact your wedding functions and the experience for your guests. For example, if you think some amazing food counters will add oomph to your evenings then you should make it a priority. Also, if a DJ suits the taste of your guests instead of a DJ then go for it only. Above all, also keep the budget in your mind too.
Last, but not the least, review it all
During the wedding planning process, you may also observe the shifts in your priorities have shifted. Sometimes things you are excited the most don’t feel enticing to the guests at some other wedding you attended before yours. This may force you to have second thoughts about your decisions. Therefore, reviewing all your priorities with your partner becomes really necessary!
The key to a balanced wedding planning is understanding what matters the most to you as well as your partner. This will not only help you save money as well as time.
