4 Things to Consider When Planning Your Big Day

Your wedding day is likely to be the most meaningful celebration you will ever host in your life. Many couples opt to enlist the services of event planners to manage their wedding arrangements, but there are reasons why you might consider taking on the responsibility yourself. Maybe you like the DIY possibilities, or maybe you’re working with a tight budget. Either way, although planning your big day might occasionally seem overwhelming, putting together the wedding of your dreams on your own is possible.


The first thing you’ll want to do is set a budget. Given that the average cost of a wedding in 2023 amounts to around $29,000, determining your budget limits is imperative. Then, there’s the timeline. Make sure you give yourself enough time to plan your wedding so you can enjoy the process without feeling stressed. This is also the time to showcase your organizational skills. Decisions, vendors, and to-do lists, amid the busyness of daily life, highlight the importance of being well organized. Ultimately, be sure to involve your partner in the wedding planning. Your wedding day is the celebration of your love and should truly reflect who you are as a couple.

To ensure everyone has a great time at your wedding, here are four things you need to consider when planning it.

Find the perfect dress

The wedding dress is one of the most crucial aspects to consider before your wedding day. Fortunately, there are many unique wedding dresses to choose from. You have the option of selecting either a fully-lined and fitted sleeveless dress with an invisible back zipper or a sleeveless, square-neck column dress with popcorn texture if you prefer something more simple. For a bolder look, consider wearing a fully lined strapless dress with a mid-length column skirt.

If you decide to have your wedding on the beach, consider wearing a cotton-lined bustier top with a sweetheart neckline and an invisible zipper and pairing it with high-waisted pants with slightly tapered legs. Whichever dress you choose, it should make you feel special and comfortable.

Choose the ideal makeup look

Your wedding day presents a chance to explore and experiment with your makeup style. Consider trying out makeup looks with the assistance of a makeup artist or seeking the help of a friend to find the perfect combination that suits you best for your special day. If you choose full-glam wedding makeup, you may spice up your look by applying lipstick in a strong color, blended eyeshadow in a color that matches your eyes, and a radiant highlighter. 

Glam makeup styles are suited for any skin tone and face shape since they highlight your attributes. Also, several months before the wedding, implement a skincare routine using high-quality products. This way, your face will be shiny and clean, so your makeup will look even better.

Hire a wedding celebrant

What could be better than incorporating some uniqueness into your ceremony? Hiring a wedding celebrant would add spice to your wedding day. It would be even better if you hired a celebrant who didn’t spend the entire ceremony glued to their script. To ensure that your guests are fully captivated and engaged at the moment, it is essential to have a celebrant who understands your vision for the ceremony. 

So, reading the celebrants’ reviews and having a conversation with them beforehand will help you find someone whose personality aligns with the atmosphere you want to create. This will prevent guests from anxiously waiting for the start of the reception and make their overall experience much better.

Make transport arrangements for the guests 

If your wedding is near the beach, hire some stunning public transportation, such as a luxury limousine, a carriage, or a boat, to take your guests from the ceremony to the reception and make a memorable journey as part of the celebration. Hot air balloon rides are also a unique and fun way for the couple and guests to arrive at the ceremony. 


If you’re planning a wedding with a retro theme, a unique transportation option to consider is vintage yellow school buses. Play some cheerful music or adorn the buses with colorful balloons and open bottles of champagne to add some flair to the trip.

Final thoughts

Every woman wants to be remembered for all the right reasons when she takes those steps down the aisle on her wedding day. Time will tell if you put enough thought into finding that special, one-of-a-kind wedding gown or into using the right products to achieve that glow when wearing beautiful makeup. To organize a unique wedding day, you might also consider arranging transportation for your guests. This will enhance their experience by providing captivating music and a delightful selection of drinks. By incorporating these four ideas, you can effortlessly plan your wedding and make sure that everyone has the time of their lives.
