1. Choose A Timeless Look

The first thing you need to consider is the look of wedding in general. Many brides try to achieve something unique and out of the ordinary and forget about the essence of their wedding.

Remember that, sometimes, classic is the best way to go. White flowers, elegant china and gold accents are sometimes the best choices to create a remarkable wedding.

You do not need to combine many colors and materials. There are occasions that the classic way is the best way to go. Some brides try to create something extravagant and combine elements that truly do not match. You do not need to overdo it with anything. A timeless look is always the best choice.

2. Choose A Theme For Your Wedding Decoration

Choosing a theme for your wedding day is of great importance. And, most of the times, it is the most difficult part for the brides.

In order to create the perfect wedding you need, first and foremost, to decide on something that represents you. You also need to consider your color scheme.

Also, you need to have in mind the season when you are going to get married, as well as the venue.

There are differences between a vintage wedding based on the 1920’s and one based on the 1950’s.

In any case, the theme of your wedding is one of the most important things you need to consider in order to create the perfect wedding and, of course, you can ask your wedding planner to guide you in the right direction.

3. Decide On Your Color Scheme To Create The Perfect Wedding

It is very important to decide on colors that match and create a color scheme that looks fantastic on your wedding day. What you need to do is to combine colors that are complementary. You can create contrast with your colors but this contrast needs to be smooth and not seem too obvious when you look at it.

You can check out to choose your colors and find out which the color of the year is.

4. Have A Mock-setup Wedding Table Before Your Wedding Day

We know that, sometimes, it very difficult to imagine how everything will match with each other. Therefore, we suggest you have a mock-setup wedding table before your wedding day.

Ask your wedding planner to create a table with the tableware, flowers and candles where you will be able to see all the colors and realize whether they match or not, as well as whether you like the final result. You may have overdone it with the details, creating an exaggerated look. Having elements that do not match may ruin your initial vision. The same goes if you have combined many ideas that do not follow the same line and style.

Therefore, a mock-setup will provide you with the opportunity to see the big picture of your wedding reception and make sure you are totally satisfied.

5. Plan Carefully Your Wedding Reception

There are many things you need to know while planning your wedding reception.

For starters, there are some basic decisions you need to take. Will you have an indoor or an outdoor reception? What type of reception will it be? While the most common wedding reception is a sit-down dinner, there are plenty of other types, such as a cocktail reception, a luncheon or a brunch, etcetera.

Secondly, you need to know whether you will have a receiving line and whether you wish to be official announced when you enter. Furthermore, it is important to decide whether you will have toasts on you wedding and how long they will last. In addition, you need to think about what time will the dancing begin and what type of pictures you wish to have of your wedding day.

Planning a wedding reception may seem difficult, but your wedding planner can really help you with all of these. In any case, you need to consider each step thoroughly and make sure everything is fully planned.

6. Choose Carefully Your Venue To Create The Perfect Wedding

In order to make sure everything runs smoothly, you need to choose the right venue. In order to create the perfect wedding, you have to make sure your wedding venue matches the theme and style of your wedding.

Check the overall look and the feeling you are getting out of the venue. Make sure you really love your wedding venue and that it has everything you need in order to create the wedding you have imagined. It is always better to choose a venue which already looks beautiful, than having to set up everything by yourself.

However, the most important thing you need to consider is what kind of venue you want for your wedding day. Do you want a sea-view venue, a venue surrounded with greenery or a venue at a luxury hotel? Your decision will be made mostly based on that fact.

Last but not least, your wedding venue must represent your style and make you feel comfortable with the idea of having your wedding ceremony or reception there.
