You woke up from that fairy-tale proposal moment with a beautiful ring on your finger. It’s official, you’re getting married! You’re embarking on one of the most exciting journeys of your life, which by the way, doesn’t have to be as stressful as rumors say. Follow our tips to know how!
1- Have a clear idea of what you want
From the moment you know how you want your wedding to look like, everything else becomes just logistics. This is where everything starts. Take the time you need to reflect. Use mood boards, make your Pinterest research, visualize the overall atmosphere, and discuss the necessary details with your partner until you have a clear idea which you can communicate and build around.
Even if you’re a control freak, you will have to learn how to delegate, simply because it’s impossible to make it on your own. Involving close people to you in your wedding tasks can be actually quite exciting. Not only you will get to spend quality time with them before the wedding, but also you will experience the fun and proactive aspect of teamwork.
3- Establish your budget
Being aware of your financials and setting a clear budget for your wedding is already half the work done. It will allow you to know your priorities and to best manage them. This way, you can know how and where to spend your money to make the best of what you have!
4- Centralize your bookings
Dealing with many suppliers can be not only overwhelming but also more expensive for you. This is why we advise you to book as many services as you can with a single vendor. For example, if you found an entertaining company that can also provide bar and catering services, go for it! Package deals will be easier to negotiate and you will save yourself a great deal of hassle.
5- Prioritize your dress shopping
Do not underestimate the time a wedding dress shopping needs. Consulting Esposa’s bridal experts and shops at an early stage will help you know more about the style of dress you want. Our ready-to-wear bridal boutiques offer a wide selection of multi-brand wedding dresses, including the works of international designers such as Lazaro, Carolina Herrera, Monique L’huillier, and our own couture brand, EsposaCouture, where the magic happens to weave the look of love you’ve been dreaming of.
6- Look at the big picture
It’s important to change perspective from time to time and remind yourself that it all boils down, at the end of the day, to celebrating a special occasion with the people you love. It will help you look at the picture differently and reassess the importance of that cake or band you are being so fanatical over. After all, you will only remember the nice words, smiles, hugs, and tears you exchanged on that day.
