Start with a wedding folder or Google drive.
This will ensure that you technically have everything you need in one place and that you will be able to manage and handle everything with just a drop of a hat. You don’t have to be all over the place and you will have a very well put together approach into prepping for the big wedding day.
Work on your budget.
Your main wedding vendors for the big day will not come cheap and you need to sort out your budget in advance as much as possible. Think about the amount of money that you will be paying out for your professional Portsmouth wedding photographer. You will also need to check out the possibility of compromising every now and then in the event that things turn out to be far more expensive than you would probably think when it all comes down to it.
Pick out your wedding party.
It is very important that you are both selective and inclusive at the same time when you are picking out the people that you are planning to include in your inner circle for the wedding party. Although it may be true that as a bride, you have all of the prerogative in the world to pick out who you want as your bridesmaids. You should have autonomy over things like this. But it is also important for you to not leave out the other female family members from the groom’s side of the family. Include one or two or so and you should be covered. Any special requests from his side should be accommodated accordingly. It will help keep things amiable and will give you a much smoother transition towards the upcoming wedding day.
Start working on your guest list.
Without a guest list, you will turn out to have a really hard time trying to set up the prep work and the rest of all of the other grunt work required for the wedding and you need to do something about it even if it is fairly out of the way. A year out doesn’t really happen to sound like something that sounds way too busy but what you can be quite rest assured of is the fact that it surely isn’t barely as much time as you probably thought it is.
Once you have a fairly solid guest count for the wedding though, you can be rest assured of the fact that you will find it fairly easy to come up with rough estimates for the expenses that you are going to run up during the day of the wedding and this is what you ought to go ahead and take into account as much as possible. Your Portsmouth wedding photographer will ask you about your head count of guests, so will your caterers, so will your wedding venue organizers, so will your entertainment, and so on and so forth. When you have the magic number, the rest of the things you need to take care of will just roll on and off easily enough.
