Wedding planning and execution take a lot of time and effort. There is more to what you see on an actual day. While the D-day seems colourful and with everything working perfectly, a lot usually happens before actualizing all of that. If you are planning on a wedding, here are a few things that happen behind the scenes that your invites will never get to know. 

Finding a venue

On the day of the wedding, your guests will think that it was the only place you have been to before settling. In the real sense, what happens is you visit several venues, some of which are referrals, others from customer reviews until you get one that is ideal for you. 

Guest List

When coming up with a guest list, a lot of deliberation takes place. Some people have to make it into your list while others will learn later about the event. During this time of planning, some friendships and relationships are broken. At the end of the day, what is important is to ensure you are maximizing your budget, to avoid going beyond. 

Seating arrangement

In times such as these, a seating arrangement is very important. Other than just reducing the guest count, ensuring that there is enough space from one person to another is important. It takes a lot of time to come up with a satisfying setup. If you are struggling with a seating arrangement, you can look up some from the internet to avoid taking too much time on one area. 

The cake

Getting the ideal cake is work. Remember, it is not supposed to be just what you love as a bride or groom but what will be pleasant to all your guests. This will require that you go for several cake tasting sessions until you are sure you have found the ideal cake for the wedding. It is also important to ensure that it is big enough for everyone that makes it to your guest list. 

The Vows

Have you ever stopped and wondered why vows sound so beautiful when uttered at a wedding? Well, the secret is what happens behind the scenes. Just as you would prepare for an exam, the same happens with vows. The couple has a lot to change until they come up with the best words for each other on their day. It is not an overnight practice but one that takes weeks and even months for some. 


A bride looks at several gowns before settling on the one she would want to have on her wedding day. There are often changes in design and even in measurements. What you see on the day of the wedding has had a lot of preparation done behind the scenes. 

In conclusion, it is good to know that so much is done before the actual day of the wedding. There is work, there are disagreements but at the end of the day, they are for the good of the actual day.
