You want your wedding to be as memorable and as beautiful as possible. To make sure this happens, you need to invest in planning and preparation. If you are not invested in planning, you will struggle to bring all of the elements together. So, when it comes to planning a memorable wedding, where must you start? Giving yourself as much time as you can is going to be beneficial. Time will help you combat stress, and it will help you iron out all of those little creases that may bug you in the run-up to the big day.

Thinking About the Theme and Style
Getting to grips with the style and theme of your wedding is essential. The theme or style will determine what you have featured on your big day and, ultimately, what it looks like. To establish the theme and style, you may wish to put together an ideas board. Start piecing together what you envision your day to be like. Focus on all elements, from the flowers and decor right on through to the clothing and color scheme you want. Getting your ideas together can be difficult, but it will give you the clarity you need. So, would you like to go for a winter-themed wedding, or are you going for something brighter, more floral, and more tropical?
The Perfect Reception Venue
One important element you must not overlook when planning your wedding is the venue. Where you will have the wedding and where the wedding reception will take place is important. If you get this wrong, it could throw off your whole day, and it could ruin the theme or style you were going for. When it comes to finding a perfect venue for your reception venue, you need to visualize again what you want. Do you want a small and intimate venue? Or would you prefer the backdrop for your big day to be grand? Knowing what is important to you and to your partner will help you find the perfect venue.
Setting a Budget
You want your wedding to be memorable for all the right reasons. For this to happen, you need to stick to a budget. If you spend more than anticipated, you may be left straddled with debt. This can tarnish and stain the memories you have of your special day. When it comes to setting a budget, it is important to break down costs where you can. When you break down costs, you then have goals for what you want to achieve, and this can further alleviate the stress of wedding day planning.
Inviting the Right Guests
Who you invite and who ultimately attends your wedding matters. If you want to create the right atmosphere, you must consider who you are inviting and why. If you are inviting guests with a plus one, then think about how this might shift the dynamic of your day or evening celebration. Careful consideration about who the right guests are (and why they should attend) will help you create a perfect atmosphere.
