Every plus size bride wants to have the wedding of her dreams but you may have asked yourself, how can I do it all on a budget without stressing out? Below are some tips that are guaranteed to lead you on the right path!
Plan Ahead – Follow the 4 P’s – Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance. Ask yourself the following questions: Who is paying for the wedding and how much can we afford to spend on this? There are many questions that will follow after this but by knowing the first two answers, you can carefully build your dream wedding.
Setting a Date – Knowing the date will help you to meet all of the proper planning deadlines. Whether your dress is passed down to you, ordered online, or purchased at a bridal boutique, you want to allow enough time to find the perfect fit and have alterations done to the dress to fit your shape and show off your gorgeous curves.
Venue – Start thinking about where you would like to have your wedding. Most places book weddings up to a year in advance so you want to make sure that you don’t look for a place last minute. If you plan this in advance, you may receive discounts for your wedding especially if held off season and at non-peak times. This is KEY for saving a lot of money.
Consider using silk flowers, they come in a variety of colors and can be arranged any way you want. You can put these together with your friends or family to save on time and money while enjoying preparing for your big day.
Invitations – You can print the invitations yourself from your printer or consider purchasing a do it yourself invitation kit. You can also have a lot of fun with this while adding your own personal touch but of course, planning it in advance will cut down on any unnecessary stress. What would you do if your printer ran out of ink right when you were about to print your invitations? This is why planning in advance is so essential.
There is so much more to consider when planning for your wedding day but these tips should help you get started. Remember the 4 P’s – Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance. You have to give yourself enough time to avoid any last minute chaos that might occur, causing you a whole lot of stress. Try to relax, this is an exciting time in your life, it will be perfect so long as you are realistic and plan in advance.
Best wishes to you and yours! Peace, Love & Blessings!
