Getting married and planning for your wedding is not an easy task at all. It may become demanding even. Nevertheless, all good things come with some sort of challenge so you must be up for it because surely, it will be worth it.
Now, how do you plan your wedding – most especially, your vintage wedding?
First, here is a commendation for choosing to go vintage. You have exquisite and special taste indeed and you are not afraid to go out of the normal path of things. It is your wedding day though so you are entitled to the guilty pleasures.
So, getting to the core, how do we start the development process for your wedding?
Identify your budget
This is the initial but essential part: the planning will surely be smoother if you and your partner discuss the amount of money you are both willing to spend for the special day.
Choose which time era you wish to emulate
Fish around for inspiration. Here you can deliberate on what you can pattern your wedding after, whether from movies, books or art. This will be fairly easy since it is something you are interested in. Brides to be, do you want to go Audrey Hepburn or maybe Marilyn Monroe? Take it into great consideration.
Contemplate how far you will go
After deciding on your theme, it is time to make up your mind if you want everything, from the big details to the minute ones, to follow it. Will you go as far as basing, for instance, your food and drink from your chosen era, or will you just settle with vintage attires for everybody? This is important because then you will see the scale of what you will be working on.
Pick your venue
At this point, choose if you want your wedding ceremony to be held indoors or outdoors. This will be beneficial for you and your guests as they select their wedding wardrobe as well as the photographer.
Get your wedding dress
This takes time and patience because bridal stores cater more to what’s the latest. You can go on the Internet and search for some online shops or sellers, or you can perhaps check out local boutiques if you can see something worthwhile.
Hire a photographer
Get a photographer whose area of expertise is weddings. You will then be ensured that they know what they are doing. When looking for one, though, do not forget to check out their portfolio first and see if you like their style. For Buckinghamshire weddings, you can contact Kevin of Scott Wood Photography. He is a professional photographer for wedding pictures and documentation wherever they may be.
Keep in mind that, in the first place, this is your wedding – your vintage wedding – so you are the boss. You get to say the final decision. Nevertheless, it still won’t hurt to listen to suggestions and recommendations from family and friends. Be open but stay true to what you want and stick to the budget, above all.
We wish you a happy and unforgettable vintage wedding!
