When you’re planning your wedding, remember to keep things in simple and follow these top five tips to keep you sane and stress-free!
Make a list. If you have to make a major decision, make a list of pros and cons, and you’ll realize which aspect you value more, and which is not important at all. Remember that less is more, and what’s important is that you’re married at the end of the day! Also, make room forâ€”and anticipateâ€”the things that don’t exactly go according to plan. There are many things you have no control over; just shrug these off or roll with the punches. Hey, with your fiancÃ© by your side, it’s going to be fun.
It’s your day! So do it your way. Trying to please everyone and juggling compromises can cause a lot of stress so go for what pleases YOU. If you receive unsolicited advice about how your wedding should be, put on your best smile and say thank you, but you’ve got it covered. A quick tip: start with the venue. If you already have a special date or month in mind, you can start looking for a venue that can accommodate your date and is within your budget range. The venue may also make you reconsider your other decisions, such as a theme. For many couples, once a venue is set, everything else follows.
Be realistic about your budget. Remember, there is life after the wedding! Spend only within your means, or you’ll end up spending the first few monthsâ€”or yearsâ€”paying off your debt instead of enjoying the newlywed life worry-free. You don’t have to spend thousands on dÃ©cor, favors, and flowers. You can have a memorable wedding with simple but stylish ideas.
Keep it to yourself. The first few weeks of planning a wedding are bound to be the most messy and confusing. At the start, you and your fiancÃ© should try to keep ideas to yourself until you’re 100% sure it’s what you want. Once you’re all set, then you can start delegating tasks to everyone so you won’t have to do everything yourself. No task is too small!
Hire a planner. You can hire a planner to get things going, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be hands-on with your wedding. Wedding planners have a lot of experience dealing with suppliers, demanding family members, and scheduling fittings. The planner can fuss over the little things for you so you won’t have to!
The best tip when planning your wedding is to have the right mindset. Yes, it is a wedding, but there is life after itâ€”marriageâ€”and this is way more important than the color of your flowers (which no one will remember, anyway). What’s important is that at the end of the day, you are married to the one you love, and you have just started the rest of your life together.
