Avoid Common Wedding Planning Mistakes, Part II

In the last blog post, we wrote about some of the things that you can do to avoid common wedding planning mistakes.  Now, we continue on that topic.  We have found that many mistakes made by brides-to-be relate to the need to micro-manage.

Don’t Micro Manage It only makes sense that we start here.  It is important to understand that your wedding is for you and the decisions should be based on what you and your fiancé want.  But, it is also important to understand that you can ask for help.  Allowing others to take some of the pressure off your shoulders can greatly reduce the stress that you feel while planning your big day.

Don’t Become Obsessed with Pinterest This wonderful social media platform has transformed the wedding scene in many amazing ways, but it has also led many brides to near insanity as they try to keep up with a never ending list of projects to be completed before the wedding.

Avoid a Long List of DIY Projects DIY elements are great and they can really help your wedding feel special and unique.  But, taking on too many of these during the planning process can lead to stress and disappointment.  Choose one or two that mean the most, and leave the rest to the professionals.

Make Time for Your Fiancé Planning a wedding is a big job, but it shouldn’t be the only thing in your life.  Remember, the greatest part of the day is sharing vows with the person who you will spend the rest of your life with.  Be sure that you don’t forget him because you are so caught up in the planning.

.Remember That Photos Are Often Staged The pictures in wedding magazines, on Pinterest, and on the bridal websites are gorgeous and they can certainly serve as inspiration, but don’t expect perfection on your wedding day.  When juggling so many variables, there is undoubtedly something that won’t go exactly as planned.  Those are the special moments that make your day even more memorable, so smile and remember who is waiting for you at the other end of the aisle.
