3 Things That All Brides Need To Keep In Mind When Planning Their Wedding

How to enjoy your wedding planning process

Planning a wedding is a mammoth task that is loved and loathed by brides all over the world. Yes, you have the freedom to create a wedding that is personal to you and your partner. But with so many aspects to organize and think about, it can sometimes feel like an impossible task. The pressure to make every minor detail perfect can take up a lot of your time and money. As well as making you stressed out and unhappy. But planning your wedding doesn’t have to be so overwhelming. Keep these things in mind as you make your wedding day plans, and you will enjoy the process far more.

This is your wedding

Everyone has their own idea of what a perfect wedding should be like. So when you unveil your engagement, there will be plenty of people wanting to help and share their thoughts with you. But sometimes friends, parents, and relatives take over the planning and create their idea of a dream wedding day rather than yours. Your dream of a small beach wedding could quickly turn into a large affair at a castle with hundreds of guests or vice versa. Accept help if it is offered to you, but always voice your opinion and be assertive. That way, you will stay in control and your wedding will remain your own.

Budget, budget, budget

While it’s tempting to spend a fortune on every aspect of your big day, this can put a strain on your finances. So you need to keep your budget in mind at all times. The last thing you want is to be paying off debts and loans for the rest of your married life. It’s a well-known fact that weddings are expensive, but there are ways you can save money. You can look for affordable wedding invitations and decorations or make your own. Or you could have your wedding and reception in the same place to reduce travel expenses. It’s a very special day, but don’t let it put you in the red.

Bigger is not always better

Big weddings in large venues with lots of guests and decorations are fantastic. But that does not make them superior to smaller, more intimate weddings. Don’t feel pressured to have an over the top wedding, if deep down you would prefer something smaller. They can save you money, reduce your planning and surround you with the most important people in your life. Whereas a larger sized wedding will require more of everything. Talk to your partner about what wedding size you are most comfortable with and how many people you want to invite. Knowing this early on will make your wedding plans much easier to accomplish.

Keeping these things in mind will help you maintain control and perspective throughout. Choosing colour schemes, your wedding dress and a venue are all important aspects of your big day. But never forget the main reason why you are planning your wedding in the first place. You are marrying the love of your life and no favours, cake or invitation is more important than that.
