Want to Plan The Perfect Wedding? Learn the Six Ps

Is your head spinning? If you're planning a wedding, it probably is. Many brides find themselves overwhelmed by all the details, especially in the early stages of preparation. That's why I've compiled the Six Ps of Wedding Planning - these tips will help you deal with the details and reduce your pre-wedding stress:

1. Price. Regardless of who is picking up the tab, you need to know and adhere to the budget. Before booking the hall, ordering invitations, or spending any money at all, you should compile a list of what each item will cost and make sure it fits within your budget. Good research is the key to planning a successful, affordable wedding.

2. Practical. Being on a budget requires the bride and groom to make sensible choices. For example, splurging on a designer wedding gown may mean sacrificing something else down the line. That leads into our next P...

3. Prioritize. Your wedding preparations start with the proposal and end with the honeymoon. It's everything in between that can be hair-raising for you and your family! There are literally hundreds of things to do, order, book, arrange, and buy. I've prepared a special checklist of wedding tasks that will help you get organized and prevent last minute panics. Request your free copy by sending an email to info@yourethebride.com with the words "Countdown article" in the subject line.

4. Pleasant. Sometimes this is the toughest of the Six Ps. When you feel the tension mounting, take time out for yourself. You don't want your wedding to be remembered as an ordeal so try to keep a positive outlook.

5. Parents. Whenever possible let parents and siblings assist with the
preparations. You'll need plenty of helpers and they'll appreciate being involved.

6. Protocol. Wedding etiquette has become more complex over the years. There are several books available on the subject such as Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette. But one great free resource is an article entitled "Wedding Etiquette Guidelines." It deals with touchy issues like who pays for what, who do you tip, how do you word the invitations, and much more. To request a free copy, send an email with the subject line "Wedding etiquette article" to info@yourethebride.com.

I wish you all the best as you plan for your wedding day. Using the Six Ps can make the preparations easier and more pleasant for you and your family.
