Prepar­ing for a wed­ding can seem like an excit­ing and irre­sistible activ­i­ty: choos­ing the right dress, think­ing through decor and writ­ing vows — it’s all so roman­tic! But when it comes to seri­ous and painstak­ing items, enthu­si­asm can fade. Chan­fash­ion is in a hur­ry to help you: in this arti­cle we have col­lect­ed tips, thanks to which you can eas­i­ly cope with the most dif­fi­cult wed­ding chores.

Budgeting the wedding

Finan­cial mat­ters are always dif­fi­cult, espe­cial­ly when it comes to such an impor­tant event. After all, when orga­niz­ing a wed­ding, you real­ly want to real­ize all your dreams and the most dar­ing ideas! In order to arrange a dream wed­ding and at the same time not face finan­cial trou­bles, it is very impor­tant to cor­rect­ly plan the wed­ding bud­get at the very start. Deter­mine the amount you can spend on orga­niz­ing the cel­e­bra­tion, as well as ways to expand the bud­get in case of unex­pect­ed expens­es and ris­es in price: this can be help from par­ents, bor­row­ing from friends, using sav­ings or a bank loan. But be care­ful! In a fit of pre-wed­ding shopa­holism, sober­ly weigh how much addi­tion­al spend­ing you need and whether you can eas­i­ly pay off your debts.

An impor­tant step in cre­at­ing a wed­ding bud­get is also to deter­mine your pri­or­i­ties. It is not nec­es­sary to choose all the most expen­sive, because not all expense items are actu­al­ly so impor­tant to you per­son­al­ly. For exam­ple, if you have been dream­ing of a Vera Wang wed­ding dress all your life and can­not imag­ine your X day with­out it, then for the sake of your image you can save on things that are less impor­tant to you — for exam­ple, on wed­ding print­ing or decor.

But the most impor­tant thing in prop­er man­age­ment of the wed­ding bud­get is the abil­i­ty to keep all expens­es under con­trol and clear­ly see where exact­ly the mon­ey goes. This will help you Bud­get Plan­ner by Chan­fash­ion! With it, you can divide expens­es into cat­e­gories, enter each pay­ment into the table and quick­ly find out how much free mon­ey you have left and which of the con­trac­tors you need to trans­fer the fee.

Search for a wedding team

The key to a great wed­ding is peo­ple. First of all, of course, we are talk­ing about you and your fiancé and your guests. But do not for­get about wed­ding con­trac­tors who will help you make your dream come true 🙂 You will need a rather big team: a pho­tog­ra­ph­er, video­g­ra­ph­er, pre­sen­ter, dec­o­ra­tors and styl­ists, tech­ni­cal staff, restau­rant team and many oth­er spe­cial­ists. How to find them all quick­ly and effi­cient­ly?

Chan­fash­ion offers you two options. The first — search for wed­ding spe­cial­ists in our cat­a­log. Choose the cat­e­go­ry you need and your city and start choos­ing: in the pro­file of each spe­cial­ist you will find a port­fo­lio with exam­ples of work, prices for ser­vices and the nec­es­sary con­tact infor­ma­tion. Choose the ones you like and con­tact them for more details.

The sec­ond way for those who want to save their time is Ten­ders by Chan­fash­ion. Every­thing is much faster here: spend 3 min­utes fill­ing out an appli­ca­tion with the wed­ding date, approx­i­mate bud­get and wish­es, and then have a cup of cof­fee read­ing our use­ful arti­cles on wed­ding prepa­ra­tion 🙂 At this time, spe­cial­ists who suit your date and con­di­tions will respond to ten­der and send you their offers. So you will save a lot of time on clar­i­fy­ing the details and sim­pli­fy your search.

Drawing up a seating plan

The tips from our arti­cle will help you to observe all the sub­tleties. “Seat­ing guests: how to cre­ate the per­fect atmos­phere” The main thing — do not load your­self with an extra bur­den of respon­si­bil­i­ty for mis­takes: any­way, after a while, the guests will dis­perse around the dance floor and, in which case, they will be able to change places.

To sim­pli­fy your task, we have pre­pared a selec­tion of tips and detailed instruc­tions with exam­ples. how to make a wed­ding menu.
