TOP WEDDING PLANNING MISTAKES
Wedding Planning on your own
So you have decided to plan your own wedding; Great step however if you are not utilising a professional wedding planner then it is important to avoid making any mistakes. Wedding planning can be stressful enough without having to worry about things going wrong on the big day. In this blog post, we will discuss 8 of the most common mistakes couples make when planning their weddings. We will provide tips on how to avoid these mistakes, so that you can have the perfect wedding day!
Wedding Planning Key Mistakes
1- NOT BOOKING WEDDING SUPPLIERS IN ADVANCE. Booking suppliers in advance is the key to hold a memorable wedding. Many couples make the mistake of not booking their suppliers in advance, and instead leave it until the last minute. This can often result in Wedding suppliers either being unavailable or overbooked, which can be super costly and will cause a lot of stress on the big day. It is important to book your Wedding suppliers as early as possible, so that you can be sure they will be available on your chosen date.
2- WEDDING MUSIC is one of the most important aspects of your wedding day. Many couples make the mistake of not booking a live band or Wedding DJ, and instead opt for a pre-recorded playlist. This can often result in an empty dance floor, as your guests will not be motivated to dance if there is no one to lead the way. A live band or Wedding DJ will get everyone up and dancing and create a party atmosphere that will be remembered long after the wedding is over.
3-WEDDING MCS are also an important part of your wedding day. Many couples make the mistake of not booking an MC Service, and instead try to do everything themselves. This can often lead to things going wrong on the big day, as there is no one there to take charge and keep everything running smoothly. A Wedding MC (most often provided by the DJs as an add-on service) will make sure that everything runs smoothly, and that your guests are entertained throughout the day.
4- WEDDING FOOD / CATERING Another important aspect of your wedding day is the food. Many couples make the mistake of not booking a caterer, and instead try to cook everything themselves. This can often lead to disaster, as there is a lot of pressure on the couple to get everything right. A caterer will take all of this pressure off and ensure that your guests are fed and happy on your big day.
5- WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER Another mistake that many couples make is not booking a photographer. Many couples think that they can save money by taking their own photos, but this often results in poor quality photos. A professional photographer will capture all of the special moments of your wedding day, so that you can look back on them and remember your big day for years to come.
Often, couples will book their photographer for just the ceremony and first dance, and then try to save money by taking all of their own photos for the rest of the day. This can often lead to poor-quality photos, as you will not have the same level of expertise as a professional photographer. It is important to book enough time with your suppliers so that they can capture all of the special moments of your day.
6- WEDDING CAR Another common mistake that many couples make is not booking a Wedding Car hire / limousine. Many couples think that they can save money by using their own car, get friends to drive or rely on Uber but this often results in them being late for their own wedding. A dedicated car / limousine will ensure that you arrive on time and in style, and will make your wedding day even more special.
7- BRIDAL DRESS ordering is another area where many couples make a mistake. Often leaving it too late to order the dress or choosing the wrong style for their big day. It is so important to take your time when choosing your bridal gown and ensure that it is perfect for you. Schedule fittings early into the wedding planning process to avoid any last-minute stressful alterations!
BONUS TIP: Make sure as part of your Wedding Planning, create a Runsheet for your suppliers and MCs so that everyone knows what is happening when and where! This will help keep things running smoothly on the day. Limousines are also a great way to make a grand entrance on your wedding day. So be sure to book one in advance to avoid any stressful last-minute scrambling!
