Whether you’re in the beginning stages or well into your wedding planning process it is likely that you’ve undergone some sort of stress along the way. Although communicating with numerous vendors and trying to keep everything as organized as possible can seem like a panic attack waiting to happen, here are our three favorite tips to enjoy your wedding planning journey as much as possible!
Hire a Planner
The job of a wedding planner is to provide knowledge, schedule appointments, and communicate with vendors while keeping everything coordinated on a timeline. Hiring a professional to work with you early on will help alleviate the hassle of trying to do everything on your own. You can then dedicate all of the time that you save to activities that make you feel more relaxed such as going outdoors or spending time with loved ones.
Decor pieces for your wedding can definitely add up (especially if they’re customized). Your immediate response might be “I can do this myself for half the cost” but did you know that the cost of the materials and time (because yes, time is money!) can actually cost MORE than outsourcing the items? Not to mention having the headache of trying to figure out what to do with the items after your wedding day. These obstacles makes it necessary to set aside money in your budget early on to allow you to get the decor items that are the most significant to you.
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
No matter how hard you try, your wedding day is not going to go according to plan. There is going to be at least one hiccup throughout the event that wasn’t anticipated earlier on. We encourage couples to remember that the most significant part of the day is your marriage. Keep your loved ones close by and remember that the small mistakes aren’t worth stressing out about!
