How to Plan Your Wedding at Home

Your wedding is the most auspicious moment of your life. It is so special that you want to do every thing related to it in a special way.

Location is the first consideration in a marriage/reception. Venue of the ceremony/reception is the most significant consideration because this is where you are going to get married to your love in front of your closest relatives and friends.
Choosing your own home or your parent’s home has a special significance because of a few reasons:

  • You are most comfortable both physically and mentally only when you are at home.
  • You have emotional attachments with your home.
  • You don’t have to carry necessary items to anywhere else.
  • It feels great to start another new life in a place where you where you started your first life.
  • You can keep your wedding private as well.

So if you’re planning on holding the ceremony in a private home, there are certain points that you should keep in mind. These are:

  • Make a Limited Guest List –

try to limit your guest list to the number of people you’ll be able to house contentedly. Even if you’re planning to use an arrangement of the interior of the home and the garden/yard, you will still have to think about the weather conditions and what will happen if everybody needs to get indoors.

  • Make Maximum use of the Area –

try to make abundant use of the locale because at home your place is very restricted. So you have to make sure that your privacy is not encroached or your neighbors are not disturbed

  • Don’t try to do Everything Yourself – .

Even if you have planned for a “casual” or “at home” approach to your marriage ceremony day, it is still the most significant day of your life and you should not employ yourself with fine points. Hire a rental company to do the need.
Given below are some very important points that you have to keep in mind if you really choose to get married at home. These are:

  • Accommodation for Your Guests

Once you’ve determined yourself to get married at your home, you need to balance your guest list to however many your house and/or yard will hold contentedly. Make clear in your mind to keep a canopy or a tent lined up from a rental company which will hold all of your visitors in the event of foul weather.

  • Invitation Card

It’s very vital for the invitation card of your wedding to match up with the theme of the wedding. While you can always go for traditional, engraved invitations from a professional printer, still hand written invitations lend an air of casual intimacy, especially when accompanied by a personal note to the invitee.  This approach matches well with your idea of getting married among your intimate friends and relatives

  • The Planning

Arrange for a member of the clergy or a Judge or Justice of the Peace who will come to your home.

Some common options in case of music can be a harp/flute or guitar/flute duo, or a keyboardist who could play the family piano. For the reception, maybe discs jockey or a small band for the backdrop music and, later on, the dancing. Make sure you have a plane for dancing and plenty of safe electrical connections for the entertainers.
A rental company or party planner can set you up with the whole thing you’ll need in the way of, canopies, tents, tables, chairs, even a moveable dance floor etc.

  • Selection of the Menu

Even if you plan to keep things on a uncomplicated you still have need of a caterer to do the job as you’ll want your guests to feel like they’re being served – not being asked to fend for themselves. If nothing else, you’ll want somebody to man the grill, clean up so that you won’t have to worry and tend bar.

These are some very important considerations that will help you run your wedding smoothly as you want it to be.
