If you’re in the process of planning a wedding, then you know how stressful and involved the entire process can be. If you’re taking on a lot of the planning on your own, you might be overwhelmed with ideas. It’s best to pick a simple venue and work from there to make it your own. You can often stick to a pretty nice budget by using the space that you can acquire and plan ways that you can customize it to your own theme. Here are three tips to help you make a perfect wedding space that you’ll fondly look back on for years to come.
Draw it Out
The best way that you plan your wedding is to draw everything out on paper. Make sure you pay attention to details like where the bar will be, where the dance floor is, where the head table will go and where all the other guests will sit. You can even include the exits, entrances, and areas where you can take photos. Any other details you come up with can be added later on to make the full plan.
Plan for More Size Than You Need
You might already have your guest list narrowed down, but don’t feel like you can squeeze everybody into a smaller space in order to save money. You should always plan for more space than you think you’ll need. You want guests to feel comfortable walking around and socializing. It also makes for a much safer atmosphere. More than just embarrassing, slip and fall injuries can be serious. Expect more people than you think will be there, just in case.
Personalize Your Décor
Most wedding venues or wedding spaces will have some basic decorations that you can use for your own design. You should incorporate some decorations of your own to make everything look like it was done just for you and your partner. You can use flowers in the color scheme you’ve chosen, centerpieces you’ve created, or even chair covers that match your bridal party colors.
Even if you have dozens of wedding options to debate over, think of different ways that you can design a wedding space that will make your day perfect. It’s important that you use ideas that both you and your partner have come up with. This makes you both feel like you had a big part in the planning.
