3 Helpful Wedding Planning Tips

August 30, 2022

When planning an event like a wedding can get overwhelming quickly especially if it is your own. There are many things to juggle to make the day run smoothly, but these tips will help you create a successful and memorable wedding.

  1. Create a Realistic Budget

While this is arguably the least fun part of planning a wedding, it is also the most important. It can be difficult because for many people it is the largest and most costly party they will host. 

Determining how much you or other parties will be contributing to a wedding will give a good idea on how much can be allocated to things like food, venue, and more. 

It’s also a good idea to stay up to date on the budgeted and actual costs in those areas for best practice.

  1. Be Honest About Your Opinions

Weddings are a big event and sometimes family and friends have expectations that don’t match with what you want for your big day. That is alright! At the end of the day it is your event so making it unique and enjoyable for you and your soon-to-be spouse is what matters. If you would like it to be a discussion with other parties you absolutely can, but remember you should have final say. Only add something to your wedding if it is something you really want!

For inspiration, think of your favorite wedding moments in movies or other weddings you have attended. How do you envision the day?

  1. Appreciate the Process

While wedding planning can be overwhelming, it is a great opportunity for you and your future spouse to navigate many potential areas of conflicts in the future. For instance, cultural traditions, money, familial expectations, and more. It is more about the journey than the destination so do not forget the reasons you are getting married in the process of making it happen! A wedding is a celebration of two people and their love first and foremost and is just the beginning of your lives together. There will be disagreements and roadblocks, but they are all details in the big picture!
