Planning a wedding without the help of an events planner can make you more prone to making mistakes. Be sure to read the following before you start planning.
Don’t Do Anything Before the Guest List
You’re so excited to be engaged and plan the most amazing wedding. You can’t wait to get the ball rolling with save-the-dates, booking your venue, choosing your flowers and tasting cake flavors. But hold on—one of the most important factors that goes into wedding planning is your guest list. It’s what determines most of the other elements of your wedding, from the catering bill to the ceremony seating arrangement. Source: TheKnot
Set Budget Priorities at the Beginning
Setting your budget priorities at the very beginning keeps you on track throughout your entire wedding planning journey. It allocates your budget to what is important to you. Today there are so many choices when it comes to your wedding, you have to make sure you spend the most money on the items you truly want first, then get any luxuries with what is left over in your budget at the end. Be smart, set a clear budget before you start spending. Source: HuffingtonPost
Don’t Commit Panic Booking
Now I have to admit that perhaps the wedding industry itself is partly to blame for this common planning mistake, especially when we repeatedly tell you to book your suppliers as early as possible. And, whilst this is true, it does not mean that you should rush out and book the first suppliers that you see.Yes, a friend might have used them for their own wedding, their price might be what you’d budgeted for or they might have a photo of your wedding venue on their website but these reasons alone are sometimes not enough, especially as your dream team of suppliers will have a huge impact on your happiness both before your wedding and on the day itself. If you have the luxury of time on your side then I’d thoroughly recommend using it to make enquires with between 2-4 suppliers per supplier category and then comparing portfolios, styles, prices, packages, client feedback, social media accounts and terms & conditions before signing on the dotted line. This way, you’ll be choosing the suppliers that are the best fit for you, your wedding and your budget. Source: LoveMyDress
