Are you planning on having your wedding right after Ramadan? Then you certainly don’t have enough time to leave any planning details till after it’s over.
Many brides think that they can't continue their wedding planning process during the Ramadan, or pause and postpone some wedding tasks.
But we are here to help you check some wedding planning tasks off your wedding checklist during Ramadan.
Here is what you need to do before and during the holy month of Ramadan.
Go to your dentist before the holy month even starts. Fix your teeth and whiten them for a perfect glowing smile on your big day.
Book Your Venue
Ramadan or not, you should book your venue way before your wedding date, especially if Ramadan is coming up, as hotels and ballrooms are normally fully booked right after Ramadan.
Do Some Shopping
Remember that shops have different opening times during Ramadan, as most of them usually close during the day and open after Iftar, or vice versa. So plan carefully and check out the opening times of the stores you have your eye on. So why not start shopping for all your wedding and bridal needs, even some furniture, and accessories for your home.
Contact Your Wedding Guests
Make sure you notify your guests of your wedding date if you have not sent your invitations yet, particularly if you have friends and family members attending your wedding from abroad. They need to make travel plans during a busy post-Ramadan season. Sending out your wedding invitation won't take much effort and you can easily finish this task during Ramadan.
Contact Your Wedding Suppliers
Book your photographer and videographer and DJ before Ramadan. Again, many weddings happen during Eid Al Fitr holiday, so venues, photographers and DJs are usually fully booked! Check out our directory and get to know the top wedding vendors in your city!
Start a Fitness Routine
Most people gain weight in Ramadan, with all the dinners and suhoor you will be invited to. Make sure you don't ruin your diet. Start a fitness routine or consult a dietician if you wish to lose weight before your wedding or just maintain your current weight. You want your wedding dress to fit well!
Start a Beauty Routine
Book a couple of makeup and hairstyle rehearsals and select your make-up artist and hairstylist. Use the month of Ramadan to take care of your skin and try on some of our DIY beauty, which includes facials and scrubs. Remember to drink lots of water after Iftar to replenish your skin’s moisture content and stay hydrated.
Finish Your Gift Registry
Select your wedding registry lists (bridal registry) from stores you would like your guests to purchase your gifts from. Again, check their opening hours during Ramadan.
Don’t scrape off the whole month from your planning calendar. Consider having your henna party or bridal shower during Ramadan. An oriental theme will be perfect during this period.
Plan Your Honeymoon
Reconfirm your honeymoon, travel and hotel plans. Make sure your official papers are valid and that you apply for visas before Eid Al Fitr holiday begins.
