If you are planning to have a wedding, you should make serious efforts to make it successful. Unfortunately, even the most prepared couple are bound to make mistakes, and there is always a price to pay. Well aware of how your wedding day is, this write-up shares some wedding planning mistakes that catch out even the most organised couple.
Making Other Plans Before Preparing the Guest List
All your wedding plans should be relative to the number of guests attending your wedding. Unfortunately, a good number of brides-to-be only think about the guest list after they are done making other plans. For a successful wedding, prepare the guest list first considering that everything else depends on the number of guests you are expecting.
Doing It All Yourself
Some people go for a DIY approach when it comes to preparing for a wedding, which is not right in many ways. As much as it is possible to handle the entire planning on your own, there is an inevitable burnout that comes along. To avoid the burnout and possibly making mistakes, choose a few projects that matter most and delegate the rest.
Planning Someone Else’s Wedding
Expectant family members will always have some input based on their preferences or traditions. Some recommendations are worth taking, but you should not make the mistake of giving in to ideas you do not ascribe to. Giving in is essentially planning their wedding and not yours. Thus, do not let your identity get lost by planning someone else’s wedding.
Too Much Talk about Your Wedding
People like surprises, and talking too much about your wedding often erodes the element of surprise from your wedding. Talking too much might see someone steal your ideas. Who knows, you might disappoint someone in case there is a change of plans. It is hard not to keep certain things to yourself, but always try.
