Don’t be afraid to delegate tasks and take advantage of the help that’s been offered. Wedding planning can be an overwhelming experience, but you don’t have to do it alone – look through your wedding planning checklist and assign tasks based on people’s strengths. This will take a lot smaller tasks off your to-do list, plus it’ll make your loved ones feel involved in your big day, a win-win situation.
Set Your Budget, Review it Often
A lot of brides will say that the most stressful part of wedding planning is sticking to the budget! The best way to avoid bank account blues is to set the budget early on in the wedding planning process. Consider your top priorities, and how much you can realistically spend to make them a reality. Next, you need to decide which investments you aren’t prepared to make, this way you don’t need to factor in unnecessary costs in the lead up to the big day. It’s so important to keep on top of your wedding budget as you go along in the planning process, as unexpected costs can quickly pile up.
Don’t forget to leave some room in the budget for things like alterations, cleaning fees and postage that mount up fast.
Manage Your Guest List
When you’re imagining your special day, do you want to be looking at faces in the audience that you don’t recognise? Keeping your guest list under tight control will ensure that the people you really want there will be, and it’ll reduce costs and the inevitable stress that comes with it. A great tip for managing your guest list is to send your invites out in waves; after you’ve received your RSVP’s from your must-have guests you’ll have a much better idea of how many more people you can afford to invite.
In our age of modern technology, many couples are choosing to create wedding websites for their guests to look at. Able to put all the important information in one place, including those annoying frequently asked questions. Your guests will be able to access the information with ease, without the need to bug you with every little question.
Remember What’s Important
The absolute best piece of advice for a stress-free wedding planning experience is; remember what’s really important. Look at your partner, squeeze their hand and take a few moments to remind yourself what matters the most.
When wedding planning gets a bit overwhelming and stressful, take some time out and go back to the basics and focus on the things which feel most “you” as a couple. Weddings North Wales don’t have any rules, so whatever feels right for you, is probably the best decision.
