A wedding is one of the most memorable and meaningful lifetime events. Everyone desires to celebrate the onset of their marital bliss in such a manner that it will remain in their memory forever. It is an event that people want to share with family and friends, who will be witnesses to the conviction that is meant to hold couples together. There are various practicalities that go into a successful marriage and unless one understands what it takes to host a fashionable wedding, it will not live up to the expectations.

When should you wed?

The season during which a wedding takes place will define the individual style, fashion and even the budget constraints. Early summer and late spring dates are very synonymous with weddings and most people book them in advance. This translates to a prolonged engagement period, should you decide to wed during these two seasons. Winter on the other hand, is not such a busy season with regard to weddings. This means you will have a broader spectrum to choose from in terms of venue, supplies and dates. However, fashion has to change during such a time to cater for the extreme conditions and it may cost a few extra bucks.

Choosing the venue

The success of your wedding will largely depend on the ability to choose a relevant venue. A lot of dimensions go into choosing the wedding venue. First, there is the issue of guests. How many people do you expect to turn up for the wedding? To deduce this, draw a tentative list of invited guests to determine the ground where they will comfortably fit. Once you have selected a venue for the ceremony, next comes the reception. It is essential to choose the both the reception and ceremony venues within the same period to ascertain whether the two will be available on the same date.

The type of ceremony that you are looking up to will also determine the type of venue that you require. Is it a religious or civil ceremony? A religious ceremony will obviously require some religious settings which is a church in most cases. Aspects of commuting also have a role in determining the right venue. If it is rather too expensive to transport people from one place to the next, a closer venue would be more ideal.


As aforementioned, a wedding is one of the events that people love to remember. This is enhanced through photography and video taking. Every event in a wedding plan should follow a logical procedure. In photography, you have to carefully assess the feel that you expect your album to carry before settling on the ideal photographers. There are various friends and relatives whose albums you can analyze as you choose a photographer. It is advised that you look at an entire photographer album rather than just the sample photos. The aim at the end of every wedding is not a few photo shots that will give hints to the day that was but rather a photographer who will tell the real story of your wedding in a manner that is relevant and elegant.

How to proceed

Depending on the complexity or simplicity that you love, a wedding planner may be relevant or not. Professional wedding planners have long been used to make every wedding event a success. If you require something systematic and professional, a wedding planner is the way to go. This is one who will take care of your budget limits and even propose some of the trending styles in weddings today.

How about the type of ceremony? This is mostly left to the discretion of the couple. Whether you need a religious ceremony or a civil one will depend on the levels of commitment and agreement from couples. Religious affiliations will mostly determine the religious grounds upon which the wedding will be hosted.

Why weddings?

Just like baptism, a wedding is an outward sign of an inner confession, which is followed by a corresponding change of way of life. After a wedding, there are several days and years that couples are meant to subsist together. What will hold couples together when the passion and commitment in the relationship begin to wane? It is the little memories of the love that was, and such are expressed through weddings and other anniversaries. This explains how valuable weddings are and why they should be cherished.
