 While planning a wedding can be

         total nightmare.
There are so many things to do, and

  least. However, with the proper
   planning, anybody can create a
   beautiful wedding without any
            troubles at all.

Planning a wedding can take as long
   as a year, depending upon how
   extravagant people want their
wedding to be. However, no matter
what size wedding people may want,
they should begin planning as soon
              as possible.
  If they plan early, they will have
much better chances of getting the
things they want such as the venue,
 caterer, photographer, dresses, DJ,
        and tuxedos or suits.
First Things First
 The first thing couples will need to
  do is plan a date and time to get
  married. Once they agree upon a
date, they will know how much time
       they have to work with.
If it is within their budget, they may
     also want to consider hiring a
wedding planner. Wedding planners
    know best how to plan perfect
 weddings, and they can take some
    of the stress off of the couple's
                shoulders.
    Another thing people need to
  determine is what they can afford.
Deciding on a budget can help them
    decide on other things as well
 including the size of the church and
reception hall, the amount of guests
to invite, and the amount of food to
               prepare.
 Other things to consider when
deciding on a budget are dresses,
    tuxedos or suits, flowers,
photographers, DJs and caterers.
Final Decisions
 The next thing that people need to
 do, when planning a wedding, is to
 make final decisions pertaining to
such things as the guest's list, venue,
      reception hall, catering,
photography, flowers, DJs and attire.
This is the time to give the guest list
to the caterer and wedding planner,
   if couples choose to hire these
             professionals.
   It is also the time to hire a
photographer, DJ and florist, and
 finalize arrangements for the
church, hall and wedding attire.
Another thing that couples will want
 to think about at this time is what
  kind of wedding cake they want.
 Additionally, if they are going to go
away on a honeymoon, they should
 begin making travel arrangements.
   They will also need to obtain a
    marriage license and pick out
wedding rings. It is essential to note
 that couples should make sure that
their rings fit comfortably before the
                 big day.
Last Minute Activities
About a month or two before the big
day, couples will want to choose and
  begin sending out their wedding
    invitations, asking for RSVPs.
 Brides-to-be will want to schedule
appointments to get their hair styled
  and for such things as manicures
             and facials.
Counting Down
  Two to three weeks before the
 wedding, couples need to obtain
their marriage license, if they have
            not already.
  They also need to make sure they
 have everything arranged for their
honeymoon, and they need to make
final appointments with the caterer,
        DJ and photographer.
 The caterer will need to know the
exact amount of guests that will be
      attending the wedding.
Last Week Before the
      Big Day
  During the last week before the
 wedding, the bride-to-be will have
       her nail, hair and facial
appointments. The couple will have
their rehearsal and rehearsal dinner,
 and the bride may wish to practice
  various hair styles and make-up
            techniques.
  On the day of the wedding, it is
   essential to try to be relaxed as
 possible. It is best for the couple to
eat a light breakfast and arrive at the
    church early, so that they can
                 prepare.
  A wedding is perhaps the most
  exciting day in a couple's lives.
However, planning for that wedding
  can be quite stressful, indeed.
There are many things that must be
 done before the big day, but when
people properly plan their wedding,
  it can run much more smoothly.
Above are some useful tips to take
the stress out of planning a perfect
     and memorable wedding.
