How to start planning your Melbourne Wedding
There is nothing more beautiful in the world than the moment true love presents itself and a couple get engaged! All stories are different but in a way, they have certain similarities that bring all couples together. Planning your Melbourne wedding should be a time that you should enjoy as a couple and we at Melbourne Weddings are here to offer you amazing tips on where to start your wedding planning.
There is no secret that planning your Melbourne wedding might become a little bit overwhelming for all couples and that you might find yourself in new territory. We have a few tips that if followed will help you both be more relaxed and prepared for the upcoming wedding preparations. We at Melbourne Weddings are here to help with all your wedding needs and help you get organised when beginning your Melbourne wedding planning.
The first step, let’s talk budget! Sitting down with your partner and working out your wedding budget prior to planning is paramount. It’s great to set a budget so that costs don’t blow out and you can plan within your suppliers within your budget.
The next step when beginning to plan your wedding is to get organised. As “back to school” as this might sound there is no denying that this is the best approach to keep everything in check. Get a binder or a notebook that will be your wedding diary throughout your wedding planning. A binder will help you be more organised as it allows you to play around with what you have inside. Compartmentalise the binder into sections so that it is not time-consuming when you need to find certain parts.
Choose a Date
Once the euphoria from the wedding proposal has settled and you are ready to begin your Melbourne wedding preparations you should choose a date. In all honesty, the date should be a little bit flexible so that you can synchronise everything. If you have your heart set on a certain date, then prepare yourself to be a little bit stressed out from all the magical synchronising you will be forced to do. If you have a certain date set and the venue of your dream in Melbourne, Victoria is not available you will find yourself in a situation where you will be forced to compromise. If you go in with an open mind it will be easier to have everything tie up together.
There are so many beautiful places around Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula and the Bellarine Peninsula. Make your appointments and grab your trusted binder and head on out to see a few of your locations. If you wish you can even ask if you can stop by to see the location before a wedding so that you can get a feel for how it will look on your wedding day. Not to mention that you can even use the ideas that others have incorporated into their wedding!
Go In Prepared
Once you find yourself at the venue make sure to have a list of questions prepared to ask the venue coordinator. There are many benefits that certain locations have and making sure you and your guests can benefit from them is key. Ask the venue how the timeline for your day would work – ask about add ons and minimum and maximum guest numbers for the venue are. Do not hold back on the things you wish to know. After all, it is your wedding- write down a list of questions before your appointment and make sure to have it with you.
The truly magical part about having a wedding is making sure that the celebrant, photographer, cinematographer, band, florist are all available on the date the venue is free. This is why you should start your wedding planning ahead of time so that your preferred suppliers are available.Once all the details will be set it will make you both feel at ease and relaxed.
Preparing for your Melbourne wedding will be a little overwhelming at times, but if you prepare yourself it will make everything much easier. And of course, one of the most important parts about getting ready for your wedding is to make sure you and your significant other take small breaks from all the wedding planning and enjoy each other. Never lose sight of why you are having a wedding and that is to celebrate your love for each other.
