Wedding Planning Mistakes Couples Make
These are the most common and sometimes tacky wedding mistakes couples make while planning their weddings to make sure YOU can avoid as much stress as possible.
1. Relying on Family and Friends as Wedding Vendors
Sure, it sounds like a good idea to get a wedding cake for free or hire your cousin to DJ your wedding on the cheap. But in my experience, it is best to let family and friends be guests; allow wedding professionals — hired! — to do the rest.
2. Not Assigning Seats at Your Wedding
It is essential to assign seats at a wedding. It eliminates so much chaos.
3. Having a Cash Bar
Cash bar? Nah, open bar. Believe me.
4. Too Many DIY Projects
It’s a nice idea to DIY (do-it-yourself) some of the wedding projects that you are passionate about, but tackling too many of them will leave you stressed out and freaked out the week before your wedding. Time creeps up quickly and you don’t want to be left with a number of items not completed (and with no time to delegate to someone else).
5. Sweating The Small Stuff
The most important thing is that you’re married by the end of the day! So, don’t worry so much about all the little details or things that can occur; relax, smile, and enjoy the day. It goes by way too fast.
