There are so many different dress styles, veil styles, and even headscarf styles. You either know exactly what you want, or you have no idea. Now is the time to use Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube and Google to really find out what you like. This goes for men’s wedding attire as well.
It’s important to find out what dress style you like before deciding on theme and colors. The theme is dependent on you and your fiance’s style. It also may be dependent on the season of your wedding (which may be too early to tell at this time). This is also the time to start researching florists and decorators to make your vision come to life.
Now is the time to start discussing whether or not you want a small wedding or a big wedding. Choose a number of guests you’d be comfortable with then start creating your guest list.
Now that you have an idea about style, theme and size of wedding you can start researching different venues in the area that can cater to your wants and needs. Most venues include catering, but if they don’t now is the time to schedule tastings with different caterers as well. You’d be surprised that some hotels actually offer halal options, be sure to ask.
There are so many new ideas when it comes to the wedding cake. Some people actually choose to forego the cake entirely, which is absolutely fine. Start researching and decide on something you both love.
Now that you have an idea of your overall theme, it’s time to start getting an idea for your invitations. Many websites now give you the option to order free samples and to even have Arabic calligraphy printed on them. We recommend checking out Wedding Invitations by Minted.
You don’t need to splurge or even go somewhere exotic or even international Choose somewhere you both love and start doing some research on weather, travel requirements, hotels, etc.
Start researching DJs or different dance/music groups that you’d like at your wedding. For some weddings it’s important to have both a female DJ (for the women’s side) and a male DJ (for the male’s side).
This is by far one of the most important things to start researching. They will be there to capture your memories so that you can look back on them for the rest of your lives so be sure to choose wisely.
These are just a few things to get you started. There may be many other categories depending on your particular vision. We hope this was beneficial to you!
