Basic free wedding tips to keep in mind are:
Plan ahead of time – this not only helps in obtaining your desired location for your wedding and reception but leaves you more time for all the last minute running around.
Prepare a wedding checklist – you can either purchase your wedding checklist or find a free one online. These mini books provide you with details on everything from your wedding location and reception hall to purchasing wedding favors and gifts for your bridesmaids. They are really useful to have and help to ensure that you don’t forget those minute details.
Prepare a budget – you both want to sit down together and make a list of your income. Decide who is going to pay for which expenses and which ones will be shared. Put money aside for your wedding so that you do not leave yourself short at the end of the day.
Ask for help when necessary – as much as you would like to plan the entire wedding you will require some help eventually. By asking family members or friends for help you are including them in your preparations and they will feel honored to be asked to help on your special day. Get them to help with choosing flowers and favors and even decorating the church and reception hall.
