Your nuptials are meant to be beautiful. (Or, at the least, really entertaining.) Don't let a foolish thing like not having a rain strategy or making a totally avoidable makeup mistake keep you from having fun. Here are the top ten wedding planning blunders to watch out for.
Anything You Do Before Budgeting
Will unexpected charges arise at the last minute? Most certainly, but the most important thing to do first is to create a realistic budget. If you don't, you run the risk of falling in love with a dress or a location—or both—before you realise that each one is more expensive than you're willing to spend on the entire event. Is creating a budget with your fiancé the most romantic thing ever? No, but establishing rules up front will spare you a tonne of worry later.
Failure to Prepare a Rain Plan
You'd be shocked at how many couples depend on marital luck to guarantee ideal weather. Of course, this is only applicable if you're arranging an outside event. No matter how strongly you feel that creating a rain strategy could curse the prediction, go ahead and do it. (And hey, even if it does rain, the pictures can still be worth it.)
Considering 10% of Your Guests Will Respond "No"
Everyone has heard the statistics: 10% of the guests you ask won't be able to attend, and if it's a destination wedding, that number rises to 20%. Although those figures are probably accurate, they are not certain, so you shouldn't rely on them. You might think it's safe to over invite while making your final guest list, but if more people accept than the venue can accommodate, you're in danger. Limit the number of guests you are inviting to the space. Additionally, keep in mind that many individuals these days are accustomed to travelling for weddings.
First, purchase your dress.
Your wedding venue? A mountainous rustic barn styled after a Pinterest board. Your attire? a lehenga that looks like rags in comparison to a Maharani's dress. Although you are free to wear whatever makes you happy, you might want to say "yes" to the lehenga, saree, sherwani or tux after you have agreed to the location and the general atmosphere of the event.
Ignoring the Trial for Hair and Makeup
Here is a direct quote from a professional: "I had one of my best buddies do my makeup, but since we live on different sides of the country, we didn't get the chance to do a trial until the actual day. I wasn't particularly concerned because she had done my makeup previously (many years ago) and I had great confidence in her. Although I was really pleased with the outcome, I may have avoided some worry if I had completed the trial sooner. Additionally, it may have been enjoyable to experiment with different looks first. Noted.
Avoiding the cost of a videographer
Couples' financial regrets are not particularly shocking, but what is startling is what many say they wish they had spent more money on. The Wedding Planning Survey by Zola found that one-third of newlyweds wished they had spent more money on a videographer. Take cues from them!
Using your photographer in an ambiguous manner
You tell your photographer to "just wing it." "I respect your opinion." It sounds quite laid-back and considerate of you, until you receive your images back and discover that they were all taken to resemble movie stills. When developing a strategy with your photographer, try to be as clear as you can. Look over his or her website and be really honest about your desires and disinclinations. You could feel needy or overbearing in the present, but trust us when we say it will be worthwhile in 30 years.
Stressing Yourself Out Too Much
We are aware of this. Your wedding is a significant event. However, being overly coiled up will make you and others around you a little insane. Prioritize the tasks that are important to you (whether it be the food, the music, or even the seating arrangement) and relax the shackles on the other stuff rather than micro-managing every single detail of the day.
Being too relaxed
On the other hand, getting too carefree during the planning stage can backfire. Many brides who take pride in being the anti-bridezilla panic out the week before the wedding when they discover they actually did need to give some things some thought. The key to effective wedding preparation, as with everything else in life, is balance.
