There is no denying that wedding planning is one of those things that is the perfect mixture of excitement and stress. You are working towards one of the most important days of your life, and this in itself is special. However, with so much to plan and the financial side of things to consider too, it is not hard to see why there are a lot of stresses along the way. With that in mind, read on to discover some of the things that a lot of women wish they knew before they started wedding planning…
Expect the unexpected – There is only one place to begin, and this is with expecting the unexpected. It does not matter how much you prepare or how much effort you put into organising your big day, there are always going to be surprises along the way! Nothing goes exactly how you expect it to on your wedding day. Rather than letting this ruin your special day, you simply need to embrace it. Does it really matter if your flowers are a little bit different to what you had ordered?
The more you do yourself, the more expensive it may be – This is especially the case if you are getting married overseas because it is hard for you to manage all elements of your special day thoroughly. Instead, it is better if you find companies to handle all elements of your special day, from wedding car rentals to the catering. This enables you to keep everything under one house so to speak. Plus, you will be able to lock in some great discounts too. You will be surprised by how quickly all of the costs mount up if you try to do everything yourself.
You will feel gorgeous – It does not matter how many tears you have shed in the lead up to your wedding. It does not matter how many hours you have put into bridal shopping. It does not matter whether you have undergone plenty of different beauty treatments before your wedding or not. On the day itself, you will feel a million dollars – guaranteed!
Your video is just as vital as your photographs – Last but not least, do not overlook the importance of a wedding video. If you can afford to, you should definitely invest in a videographer alongside a photographer for your big day. Of course, photos are essential to have. However, there is nothing like a video to really sum up the true essence of your special day and to capture those precious moments between all of the guests.
As you can see, there is a lot that needs to be considered when it comes to planning a wedding. Hopefully, you now have a better idea regarding some of the unexpected elements that you should expect, so to speak! There are bound to be a lot of surprises along the way, but the aim is to always ensure that these are good surprises rather than negative ones.
