Ways To Make Your Wedding Planning More Stress-Free

Most brides want their special day to be perfect, so planning a wedding can become extremely stressful. From the location and flowers to finding the right dress, there are a lot of decisions that go into planning for the big day. Here are some tips on how to make planning for your wedding in the Chicago suburbs more stress-free. 


Stick to One Location

If you can, try and stick to a singular location that can accommodate all the needs of you and your guests. At Alpine Banquets, we have space for both your ceremony and reception so you will not have to worry about transportation and relocation between events. This can save you and your guests from having to move to a new space after the ceremony for the celebration. 


You should also consider a location that has hotel accommodations nearby, so guests of yours that are traveling for your big day can easily make it to and from the venue. Alpine Banquets is conveniently located near several hotels and close to Chicago for guests that would like a more big-city stay. 


Start Planning Early On

Don’t wait until the last minute to start your wedding planning. It is best to start planning as early as one month after your engagement. Most brides don’t give themselves enough time to fully plan, so as the day comes closer the stress builds up. The best practice is giving yourself at least a year to get ready for your wedding. 


Show and Tell

In order to make sure that your wedding is exactly how you would like it to be, don’t just tell the vendors what you want, show them specifics as well. Find examples of floral arrangements, color schemes, or reception set-ups that you like online and give those samples to the people working on your big day. It can give each vendor a starting point and something to reference while they prepare for your wedding in the Chicago suburbs. 


Practice Speeches in Advance 

Practice makes perfect and it can also calm your nerves on your wedding day. It is good to give yourself time to craft and rehearse any speeches or vows you will be reciting. Have a person you trust listen to your speech so you can hear how it sounds out loud. Practicing early and will often help you check one more thing off your list as the big day approaches.
