Planning on a budget
We advise to get your basics sorted out first. Remember budgeting only comes in depending on your what you want. Ensure that you are realistic with your expectation and comfortable with your finances. Big dream comes with big price tag. It is best to get your wedding budget and priorities straight.
Where to start
Discuss with your partner on the date and how intimate or massive you want the wedding to be.
Two things most couple start planning first is looking for a wedding venue and a bridal boutique to get pricing and know the availability.
These two will help a lot in lightening your planning process.
Wedding venues and your outfit go hand-in-hand, so let your consultant know what you have in mind and listen to what they suggest to you.
If you have booked your wedding by the beach/garden settings, you do want to let your bridal consultant know about it to avoid picking out a mismatching theme for you.
Is going for a one-stop service bridal boutique a good idea?
Most bridal boutique provide a one-stop service, which consists of pre-wedding photography, gown and suit rental, make-up and hairstyling, hand bouquet as well as partnering with other vendors for venue styling and photo booth.
With a full bridal package like this, you only need coordination with 1 vendor and all things will be taken care of.
How to decide on who and if they are trustworthy?
Whether you are engaging a one-stop service boutique or getting your wedding needs ala carte, always speak to the consultant first and understand their work and style.
If you have doubt, tell them about your concern and moreover there will be reviews online which you can read about past couples experiences with them.
Look out for the red flags if any and then decide from there. It is wise to clear any doubt before confirming with any vendors. Remember wedding planning mostly takes about 3 months to up to 2 years and we want you to enjoy the process.
Once you have confirmed on the vendors, be confident in what they do. After all, they are the experts.
Going the ala carte way or with a one-stop service?
There is no right or wrong in this. You may like a photography style in shop A and prefer the gown in shop B. If you do have a budget, go for what you like! Wedding is an emotional and intimate experience, so make the most out of it.
Couples whom are busy with work and don’t have much time in planning their own wedding or if they need more assistance, should go for a one-stop service boutique or engaged a wedding planner.
