Most of us know what we should do when planning a wedding or at least help to, but not as many know about what we should avoid. This is just as important as the rest of it, so as to ensure a smooth planning process at all times. Whilst hiring wedding planners can be quite useful in this regard, you want to make sure that they too do not make these mistakes. Here are a few things you should avoid, which you can hopefully bear in mind as you run about finalising your preparations.
Something understandably difficult to avoid given the circumstances, but your friends and family will probably coin you something else that begins with ‘b’ instead of the bride. There is no need to ruffle everyone’s feathers and get all riled up. If something does not go according to plan, think logically about what you can do to rectify the situation and steer it back on track. If you cannot steer it back on track, look at your alternatives. Be strategic and analytical. Though yes, it is your day, make sure everyone else gets to enjoy it too, instead of recalling this period as a nightmare in the future.
Think Of Yourself Only
Yes, everyone appreciates and understands that this is your wedding, but do not forget you are not getting married alone. Well actually, there are people that marry themselves but that is a whole other topic. You need to think of your significant other when it comes to the wedding plans because their opinions count too. Sure you may have dreamed of having 23 pure white swans swimming in the pond outside, but your fiancé may think something else. Look to compromise and make allowances for each other. You are planning to spend the rest of your lives together so though he may not be able to help you with your hunt for Brisbane wedding makeup, there are other things both of you can help each other with.
Give In To Chatter
Any bride wants her wedding day to go off without a hitch, so you can imagine how frustrating it can be to hear that someone does not think the place settings are suitable enough or that the (gasp!) dress is not elegant enough. People talk all the time about all sorts of things, but if you were to let all of it get to you then you would never survive in this world. It is the same in this instance. Let people talk about anything they want, do not take any of it personally. If you like your décor, your dress, and your plans, then that is all that really matters.
Lose It All the Time
Things will go wrong, but you need to keep your cool. By all means be mad when something really deserves your anger, but otherwise, be as calm as possible. If you stress out over every little thing, you will never enjoy the process. There is so much to think about, after all, you do not want to get your blood pressure rising consistently do you? Long as you have a plan A and plan B, you are more than fine, so relax and enjoy yourself.
