Planning a Wedding Party? 4 Easy Oversights to Remember
Like all couples tying the knot, you want your day to be special and go off without a hitch. You can plan every single detail, but ultimately, the day will take on a mind of its own. You will need to resign yourself to having the time of your life and let go of anything that comes up that is not part of your plan.
Even if you are hosting a do-it-yourself style wedding, there are going to be things that are beyond your control. You can order the perfect gin and tonic glasses, but when they arrive, they may not match the other place settings. Know that this type of “issue” is no big deal. No one but you will know the place settings are not perfectly matched.
Below are 4 easy oversights to remember when planning a wedding party.
- Ask for Help
Many brides want to do everything themselves. However, there is no shame in asking for help from friends and relatives, and the majority will be happy to lend a hand.
Chances are, you have already picked out most of the essentials so there is no need for you to go and pick them up. Ask your bridesmaids to pick up things like pre-ordered decorations, place settings, and food. By allowing them to help with this type of task, you free up more time for your personal needs, like relaxing and remaining calm, both necessary for a beautiful bride to be her best on her special day.
- Think About the Future
You may have an unlimited budget, but do you really need to spend your entire allowance for a single day? Many of today’s couples are going with a reasonably priced wedding and investing their funds in a starter home.
DIY weddings are another option for saving money. Remember, not everything has to be brand new or layered in gold to make your day special and unique.
- Think Interactive
When planning the reception or celebration after the ceremony, think about your guests and their need for fun. Having interactive stations, like building a sundae or a craft station, will help to entertain your guest and will not cost a fortune!
Additionally, if your guests are creating something they can bring home, you are taking care of two items at once: entertainment and memorable wedding favor. You are also giving those individuals that aren’t comfortable on the dance floor an alternative option.
- Plan for Fun
The entire day is about you and your future spouse. This is a one time deal, so you want to make it fun. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Plan everything you can, but roll with the unexpected.
Things happen, and your day will be as special as you make it. Wake up and determine you are going to have a great day, which includes fun. Keep in mind that you are in charge of how you react to the unexpected and continue to smile. When you look back on this day, you will be glad you kept your sense of humor and had the time of your life.
