Competing with your partner in order to look better than them is not a bad idea (it's both of your special day). However, it can be challenging at times to get that ideal look.

Also, planning weddings are stressful but if you follow a wedding checklist, your task will be simpler. So, go over them and, soon, you’ll be in a position to do your best to get the ideal look for your wedding.

So, when you're planning your wedding, make sure to have these 5 things on your wedding planning checklist. 

1. Make sure that your wedding attire is elegant

Your wedding attire is the most important thing, and you should get suggestions from others before investing in it. Remember that if the wedding attire is not elegant, it can turn out to be difficult for you to make the right impression on your wedding.

It is also important to be sure that you do not get your dress ready months before your wedding. The reason behind this is that your body shape might change a couple of months before your wedding.

2. Choose minimalistic jewelry

The focus should be on you and your dress. So, make sure that you opt for minimalistic jewelry options and give yourself the liberty to choose only things that will add to your look, without taking away the attention from you or your dress.

In the case of men, there are already limited options like a gold watch and a chain. But for women, there are many options. So, be careful while making a choice.

3. Get help

Yes, it is your wedding but it is not possible to look into each and every matter all by yourself. If you manage to do so, you can appreciate the effort, but that would not be enough. If you can, hire a wedding planner.

Remember that there are many things to work on and if there is no one around to help, you might be disappointed with the outcome. So, make sure there is someone around to help you for at least a couple of days before your wedding and even on the day of your wedding.

4. Don’t consume alcohol for at least three hours before your wedding

While consuming alcohol should be limited for a few days before the wedding, it is essential that you make sure that you do not consume alcohol at least three hours before the wedding.

If you make this mistake, you may have a tough time getting through the ceremony. This can have a negative impact on you and may cause you to act in ways you'll regret for years to come. Every time you think about it, you’ll want to erase it from your memory.

So, make it a point to avoid alcohol for at least three hours before your wedding. If you can wait for a little longer, it will only help you in being happy and in creating memories that can be cherished for years to come.

5. Make sure that you have enough lighting in the room you’ll get ready in

Even before you get ready for the wedding, it is important that you have adequate lighting in the room. If you do not have enough light in the room, things can go wrong, and you would not be happy making a regret face a couple of hours before the wedding.

So, get in the room hours before you wish to get ready for the wedding and be sure that the lighting in the room is adequate or not. If it isn’t adequate, ask for the team to work on it.

Remember that even a small mistake here can have a long-lasting impact on you and your relationship. So, be careful about it.
