Planning a Wedding – a Task for the Entire Family

Posted on Sep 12, 2016

Weddings are complicated affairs. They are hard to plan and organize and even harder to pull out without any mistakes or slips. However, every couple tries and if you want your wedding to really be the best day of your life, then you need to get the family involved. The more you delegate tasks, the easier it will be to get things organized and running smoothly. Each and every member of your family can have only one designated area to take care of, such as flowers, cake or table decorations, and you can be the liaison, while you take care of more important things, such as the wedding dress or shoes. However, one thing you might not want to delegate is the gift registry, as you and your significant other should definitely look into potential gifts yourselves. There are many gift registry ideas circulating today and it might not be a bad idea to research the matter a little.

Make sure everyone knows they’re role


If you really want no mistakes when it comes to planning and organizing your wedding, then you need to ensure that every person knows exactly what he or she has to do. The best way to go about it is to actually create a sort of list or chart of responsibilities and add it to your wedding diary, which you can then share with everyone involved. In the world of technology that we live in, sharing this type of things is very easy and convenient, you could do it by cloud, email, and other such methods. You can even set up deadlines or status checks, as well as reminders, just to make sure everyone is on the right track. However, as mentioned above, when it comes to gift registry ideas and set up, this is something you and your partner should do together, on your own.


Set up a schedule for yourself


Sometimes is easier to organize others than yourself, so while you take the time and effort to make sure everyone’s doing what they’re supposed to do, you might overlook one important person: yourself. To that extent, it’s a good idea to set up a different list and schedule for yourself, consisting of things you need to take care of on your own, such as the wedding gown, the shoes, hair and makeup and, why not, those gift registry ideas you need to look at before setting one up for your guests. The more you schedule, the easier it will be to keep track of what has been done, what’s being done and what’s left to do, so that you can fit within time frames and make sure you don’t lose sight of anything.


All things considered, involving the entire family in the planning and organization of your wedding can definitely help, not to mention the fact that will give your wedding day a very warm and family-focused feel, but there are certain things that you must do or take care of yourself, so it’s a good idea to be organized on both plans.
