Planning the perfect wedding has a lot of things that go into it. From the venue that you choose to the budget that you set to the dress that you wear, there are so many things that must be taken into consideration. It can be a stressful process, this is certain, but that does not mean that you necessarily need to have the perfect wedding. At the end of the day, it is only important that the wedding be perfect for you and the person that you are marrying, and no one else.
For one, you will need to set a budget for yourself and for the money that you are willing to spend on your wedding. If you go over your budget, it is likely that you will be in a financially uncomfortable place, something that is not worth it for many people – even if it is for expenses for their wedding. It is important to also factor in any monetary help that you are receiving from your parents or your partner’s parents, as sometimes families will contribute a sum of money to help you have the wedding of your dreams.
The date of your wedding is perhaps the next thing that you will set, as this, along with your budget, will determine many different aspects of your wedding. For many people, summer weddings are ideal. After all, it can be hard to turn away from the beautiful weather that is so often present during the summer months that are so present in so many parts of the country.
Of course, many people are also interested in weddings that take place during the fall months instead. After all, a wedding in the fall is still likely to experience nice weather, at least up until you get to the month of November, and is less likely to be so overwhelmingly warm and humid. If you are someone who wants a fall wedding, this might change the venue of said wedding all together.
For instance, a fall wedding might take place on a pumpkin patch or even in an apple orchard. Such a location can be perfect for your typical fall wedding, as it will incorporate many peoples’ favorite aspects of the entire season. For instance, guests might enjoy some apple picking activities in a wedding that takes place in an apple orchard.
The food commonly made and sold at an apple orchard will also likely to be available for your wedding – particularly when it comes to the dessert that you choose to serve. From homemade apple pies to apple donuts to apple fritters, many delicious apple treats are widely beloved here in the United States and are likely to be just as thoroughly enjoyed as a part of your wedding celebrations.
Of course, aside from considering the food for your wedding, you’ll need to consider what you and your wedding party are wearing as well. This will greatly depend on the season and where it is that you are hosting your wedding. For instance, a bride who gets married during the winter months is not likely to want to wear a strapless dress to an outdoor ceremony with no form of protection. This is likely to be hugely uncomfortable, and instead the couple might choose warmer clothing or might instead simply decide to get married at an indoor location, even if it means choosing a different reception venue from actual ceremony venue.
The number of guests that you invite is another factor, and one that will be directly linked to a number of other decisions. For one, the venue that you choose must be able to accommodate the number of guests that you have selected, as must the catering services that you hire as well (regardless of whether or not they are offered alongside your venue for an additional fee). The number of guests invited will also often set the tone for your budget, as the more guests you invite, the more money you will need to spend. Some people will even choose not to invite children and have an adults only celebration so that they can cut back more significantly on costs.
