Have a check list as soon as you decide the wedding date. It does not matter how early, but write down everything you would like on your wedding as soon as you remember.
Planning a wedding is very stressful, even if you have a wedding planner, remember they are planning as per your specifications. When the wedding comes close, the rush can make you lose your mind. As a bride, there are things that will mean much to you and ruin your day when they go wrong. While your professional wedding planner and maid of honor will make sure all runs smooth for everyone else, only you can make your dream wedding come true. Have of these personal details in advance.
When it comes to the moment of fitting in wedding gowns, you will come across so many gowns you get confused. Most ladies can describe for you their dream wedding gown in detail. While you may not get the exact as you shop, write down the major details. Or better, you can have a draft design that you can present to a tailor/ designer if you intend to have your dress custom made. You could have wished for a V-neck gown all your life and find yourself dressed in one of the strapless gowns that have flooded the market.
Veils and Tiara
How would you like to dress your head on this special day? Would you like a veil, tiara, vintage net or a head band? Know your accessories and write their details down. Shopping for accessories is fun there is variety of choice but what looks good on you. What have you always wished on? While at this, know your earrings, necklace and any other accessories you would like.
You color code right
Have your color code right, know what colors you would like on your wedding day. While you could have dreamed of a whole pink wedding, keep up with the trends. Like in the year 2013 we have noticed how much brides have been colour blocking and it looks great. Every colour mixing idea you have write it down and cancel the ones that you conclude won’t work for you. When the day gets close, you will have a few suitable colors to choose from.
Details of your makeup
How do you like your make up? On your wedding day you can decide to go an extra mile on the makeup, just don’t go to the extremes. Have a photo or 2 of the example of the makeup you would like. You may have the best makeup artist but I am sure you don’t want to look like a real life Barbie. The photos of the makeup idea will help the artist make you up to someone you will recognize on your wedding photos.
