Helpful Tips to get you on your Way to RELAX, ENJOY, and SAVE:

We want you to relax and enjoy your wedding, regardless of whether or not you should choose to hire Rare Earth to help you plan your wedding. So here are 12 things you need to know and do to get started and remain relaxed throughout the journey:

Getting Started

Step 1: Setting the date

The actual date of the wedding is one of the most important details that you and your fiance have to decide upon. This should be taken care of first.

Step 2: The Budget

Before you start to make your plans, you must have a budget. Know how much you want to spend for each detail of your wedding. With the average wedding costing approximately $20,000 you certainly want to budget for each detail so you don’t find yourself over extending.

Step 3: Your Venue

Where your wedding will take place. Looking for a place to have your wedding certainly is important and it is also the biggest chunk of your budget besides your honeymoon.

Step 4: The size of your wedding

It is very important to talk with your future spouse about the size of your wedding that you both have in mind.

Step 5: Photographer/Videographer

You will want to consider a professional because you want something very special, lasting and visually presentable.

Step 6: The cake

When in search for your wedding cake it’s best to have a tasting first, before settling on a cake. To make this fun invite some friends and family to the tasting!

Step 7: Ordering wedding invitations

If you want to get creative, you can always print your own invitations. This way you can customize them and add your own personal touch to them.

Step 8: Your wedding attire

Don’t forget to start looking for your wedding gown months before the wedding day. This way you will have plenty of time to make a selection and take care of fitting.

Also, the groom should make arrangements for either buying or renting a tuxedo. Just in case you encounter some trouble with the fitting, you would have some time to make other arrangements.

Relax in the moment together...

Step 9: Disagreements? listen and consider other points of view

Try to take them in stride...especially when they involve your fiancé. Remember, the most enjoyable weddings are the ones where the bride and groom are happy and in love, so if you have that going for you, your wedding will be all you want it to be.

Step 10: Share in the responsibilities

It’s your fiancé's wedding, too. No need for you to be in charge of everything. Assign your fiancé tasks that he won’t mind doing. And don't forget to make time for each other. Don’t allow yourselves to become so consumed with all the wedding plans that you no longer do fun things together as often. Even while you are planning your wedding, there is no reason to stop dating.

Step11: Schedule some down time

Set aside some time for yourself that has nothing to do with the upcoming wedding. It never hurts to disconnect from the wedding plans for awhile. Soak in a warm, relaxing bath, go to a movie, or get a massage.

Step 12: Ask for help

Whether you hire a wedding planner to take care of all the minute details, or ask a close friend or family member for help, accepting some assistance may help you to relax and enjoy this busy time.

There you have it. 12 steps to get you started on your wedding plans and remain relaxed throught the journey. Now put these steps into action and remember, you are embarking on a beautiful journey.
