When it comes to wedding planning, many things go into it. From the dress to the food, endless details need to be considered. However, sometimes people forget about some of the most important aspects of wedding planning. This blog post will discuss four essential steps that people regularly forget about when planning a wedding!
1) The first step is to set a budget.
This is probably one of the most essential steps in wedding planning, yet it is often overlooked. It will be challenging to stay on track and not overspend without a budget.
Make sure to sit down with your partner and discuss how much you are comfortable spending on your wedding. Once you have a number in mind, start looking for ways to save money where you can. There are plenty of ways to have a beautiful wedding without breaking the bank! If you need help getting started, there are many great resources out there that can help you create a budget that works for you.
The Knot has a great tool that lets you input your estimated guest count and wedding budget and then gives you a breakdown of where your money should go. Wedding Wire also has a budget tool that can help you keep track of all your wedding expenses in one place. Both of these resources can be extremely helpful for creating and sticking to your wedding budget! Once you have a budget set, it will be much easier to move on to the next steps in wedding planning!
2) The legalities.
Another critical step that is often forgotten about when planning a wedding is taking care of the legalities. This includes getting a marriage license and if you are changing your name, ensuring that all your documents are updated with your new name. Furthermore, if your fiance isn’t an American citizen, it’s important to acquire a K-1 Visa for your spouse before getting married.
Getting a marriage license can be a bit of a process, so give yourself plenty of time to take care of this! You will need to bring some identification with you and pay a fee. Once you have your marriage license, you will be one step closer to being officially married!
If you are changing your name after getting married, there are quite a few things you will need to update. Your social security card, driver’s license, passport, and bank accounts are just a few things that will need to be changed. The process can seem daunting, but there are plenty of resources to help you through it! The Miss Now Mrs name change kit is a great place to start and can help make the process easier.
3) Plan the big day.
One of the most fun parts of wedding planning is choosing who will stand by your side on your big day! This is an excellent opportunity to involve your closest friends and family in your wedding.
Start by making a list of who you would like to ask to be at your wedding party. Once you have a list, reach out to each person individually and invite them to be a part of your special day! If they say yes, you can start planning what roles they will play in the wedding.
If you are having trouble deciding who to ask, consider who has been there for you during some of the most significant moments. These are usually the people who will be more than happy to stand by your side on your wedding day!
These are just a few essential steps that people regularly forget about when planning a wedding. However, by taking care of these critical details, you will be one step closer to having the wedding of your dreams!
