There are so many bases to cover when it comes to planning your wedding. There are many decisions that you and your fiance will have to make. An important decision is choosing who will be in your wedding party. Here are some tips in making the decision:
When it comes to your wedding day, you want to be surrounded by friends and family that have been there for you and have supported you throughout your life. Friends may come and go, but choosing the friends or family that have always been there for you would be a wise choice. You shouldn't feel pressure to choose someone that you are not sure of. For instance, maybe when you were younger you had a friend that you always thought would be in your wedding. If that friend has not been in your life for awhile and has not been there for you, then you shouldn't feel obligated to have them in your wedding if it doesn't feel right. Sometimes friendships change.
Now that you have the ring on your finger and your fiancé standing by your side, the time has come to begin planning your wedding! There are so many things to consider when it comes to wedding planning. Do you want a long engagement or a short engagement? If you are in a hurry to get married to the love of your life, you may be wondering how quickly a wedding can be planned. I would say that you can plan a wedding in as short of a time frame as you would like. But you need to consider that there may be consequences to planning your wedding in a short time frame. Some parts of your wedding may end up looking "sloppy" or not well planned which in reality, may be the truth!
If you would like to have a short engagement, you must be very organized. Be sure to prioritize the important factors that will make your wedding day perfect! Make lists, do your research and ask for advice.
