Modern weddings bring together familiar traditions and fresh ideas. Every ceremony is a celebration of a couple's new beginning among beloved friends and family. However, before the big day arrives, the bride and groom must spent hours of their own time to plan a memorable experience.

The First Steps of the Planning Process

Most brides and grooms begin the wedding planning process by setting a date for their event. After selecting a day, the couple can begin making more plans, including the location of the ceremony. Popular wedding locations are often booked up months or even years in advance, so the couple must shop around for an available venue that fits their plans. For example, if the couple intend to marry in a religious ceremony, they'll need to find an appropriate church building to host their event. If a couple is planning to invite hundreds of family members, they'll need to find a venue with enough space to accommodate a large crowd.

Important Details

Once the couple has picked a date and location, the bride and groom can begin planning the other details of the upcoming ceremony. Both the bride and groom will need to select clothes for themselves and their attendants. These outfits usually reflect the theme or color pattern the couple has selected for their event. The bride and groom must also work on an invite list and purchase invitations. Other important details include hiring a professional photographer and setting up gift registries.

Finally, all couples should learn more about their region’s requirements for getting a marriage license. Planning this step early can help the bride and groom avoid any last-minute complications.

Entertainment and Food Options

Many couples choose to make their wedding reception a true delight for their guests by including food and entertainment. Couples with a bigger budget sometimes choose to offer their guests a full dinner. Others prefer to offer snacks, including small appetizers and finger foods. Some couples choose a more casual reception that only offers a number of tantalizing desserts.

The bride and groom can choose a number of entertainment options, including music, photo booths, games and other activities. For the music, couples can opt to feature professional musicians or recorded music. The groom and bride must choose options that fit the space they plan to rent for their reception.

The Actual Day

Couples who have carefully planned every aspect of their ceremony can relax and enjoy their spectacular day. Most couples spend the early part of the day separated from each other. With the help of their respective assistants, the bride and groom get dressed and ready for the ceremony. Meanwhile, the couple's friends, family and professional assistants help to finalize any lingering details at the venue.

Once the final preparations are complete, the wedding is ready to begin. For most couples, the ceremony truly starts when the bride walks down the aisle to see her groom for the first time that day. At that moment, the couple can finally begin to see the fruits of their careful planning.
