HOW TO PLAN A WEDDING CEREMONY AND RECEPTION WITHOUT A WEDDING PLANNER
Thanks to the wealth of apps and resources available to you today, you have everything you need to plan a wedding yourself, without the need for a wedding planner. It can be daunting to plan everything from scratch, and the truth is that it’s a lot of work—a LOT of work! However, you can pull it off like a pro by following these tips:
HAVE A THOROUGH PLAN
And by thorough, we really mean “everything planned and organized, down to the tiniest detail”. The only way to ensure nothing falls through the cracks is to have a comprehensive master list of everything you need to plan. (Check out THIS POST—INSERT LINK TO RELEVANT BLOG POST—to help you start out.)
START WITH THE BASICS
There are two things you need to have when planning a wedding: a budget and a guest list. Your guest list will determine what sort of venue you can choose, and the budget will decide the rest of the wedding details. Sit down and hammer out that guest list until both of you are happy with it, then look at your finances to see how much you’re willing to invest in your wedding.
MAKE THE BIG DECISIONS FIRST
Venue is the decision you need to tackle right away, at least 9 to 15 months before the day of the wedding. Once you have a date, look for the venue and make sure you’ve put down the deposit to reserve it for the day of your wedding. Only then should you start looking into florists, caterers, entertainment, and all the other details.
DO YOUR RESEARCH INTO VENDORS
Before you hire any DJ, MC, band, caterer, florist, or any other sort of vendor, make sure to do a lot of research. Read reviews online, and consider reaching out to the people who posted 3-star reviews or lower to find out exactly what went wrong with the vendor and service. Do your research to make sure you know exactly what to expect before you hire any vendors.
PLAN FOR HICCUPS
There will always be last-minute challenges and obstacles that crop up. Maybe one of your relatives arrives late at the airport, or your partner forgot to pick up some crucial element for the wedding. Always have a back-up plan for literally everything that could go wrong. It will save you a lot of time and stress on the day of the wedding.

EPIC WEDDING GIFTS FOR THE BRIDE
Not sure what to get her? Here are a few awesome wedding gifts she can’t help but love:
You’re already putting a ring on it, but why not get her a little trinket extra? You can get her a locket with a space for your wedding photo, or buy a simple pendant with the date of your wedding engraved. Keep it simple, but do something to commemorate this special day.
There are a host of flowers at her wedding, but why not gift her a single flower that will stand out from all the rest? A red rose will look beautiful among the myriad white roses, or you can get her a more exotic flower to symbolize just how unique she is!
Do you have an heirloom that is passed down through your family from generation to generation? Now is the perfect time to give it to her! Whether it’s a brooch, pendant, ring, necklace, or anything else, wrap it up nicely and present it to her as a sort of official “welcome to the family”.
The stress of her wedding day is no doubt going to make her a bit nuts, but that’s par for the course! A great way to show her just how awesome you will be as a husband is to get her a gift that will help to take the edge off in the days following the wedding. Think of a bed and breakfast outside of town, a spa day, or an event with an open bar. Even after you come back from the honeymoon, it’s still good to have this gift handy so she has a way to relax once real life pressure sets in again.
Whether it’s a DVD copy of your favorite movie, a book with corny jokes you know she’ll love, or a book that you two can read together, get her something fun or silly as the ideal wedding present!
