Your wedding day is the most important day of your life. Whether you're a bride-to-be, or if it's someone else's big day you're planning for, knowing how to avoid common mistakes will make sure that everything goes smoothly and without a hitch.
Ladies, we want to make sure you're prepared for your big day and don't commit any of these common wedding preparation mistakes. When it comes to planning a wedding and preparing for it, there is never too much time on hand. There are so many things to take into consideration and coordinate, you may feel overwhelmed with tasks. It takes an enormous amount of organization. There are just dozens of decisions on your horizon and you must cope with them. It is ok if you feel lost and stressed out while planning your own wedding day, but you do not want to make the same mistakes other brides make. Check out this list to be on the safe side.
- Take care of your guests. Some of them will likely travel, and at considerable expense, to attend your wedding. Make sure they feel comfortable. Provide transportation for them, book hotel rooms, etc.
- Don't Experiment With Your Hair Do and Make-Up on the wedding day. Think your bridal look through down to the last detail in advance.
- Establish your budget thus you will know your limitations. Additionally, account for hidden costs.
- Try to minimize the Time Gap Between the Ceremony and Reception in order not to leave guests with nothing to do.
- We have already mentioned that it is important to take care of all your guests, but also you should not forget about your vendors. They are the people who work hard before the wedding as well as on the big day. The last thing you want on your wedding day is a low-energy DJ or an exhausted photographer. Make sure they all have enough food and drinks.
- Do your best to make time for everyone. Yes, there will be a lot of people present, but at least try to say Hello to everyone.
- Do not postpone sending Thank-you notes. Do not wait for a year to mail those cards. It is recommended to do this within two to three weeks of the festivities.
- Match Your Bouquet to Your Dress. This will make your bridal look be as organically as possible.
- Never invite non-wedding guests to pre-wedding events.
Finally, you try to keep everything in mind and simply forget to have fun. Remember that it is YOUR day! Do not forget the reason you're doing all of this. Even if something goes wrong, it is not a catastrophe. Your wedding day still will be the best and the most memorable for you. After all, it is just one day in the journey.
