Avoid These 3 Wedding Planning Mistakes

by Harper King

Getting married is one of the most exciting times in your life. You spend months trying to make sure all of the fine details are taken care of. Unfortunately, some people are so stressed out trying to handle all of the planning that they end up making costly mistakes. To make sure your wedding is the most enjoyable and exquisite occasion of your life, don't make one of the following mistakes.

Choosing an expensive fabric for your dress.

Silk tends to be one of the most expensive fabrics used to make wedding dresses. This smooth, natural fabric might feel soft to the touch, but it will hit your pocketbook hard. If you are trying to keep the cost down, you might want to consider looking for a dress made of a silk/rayon blend. It will still look amazing, but the cost is significantly lower.

Being attached to just one type of flower.

Many people book their florists months in advance. While you might like asters, carnations or chrysanthemums, that doesn't mean that the blooms you want are going to be available on the day you get married. You want to have a couple of options that are going to work for you. This way you aren't disappointed if your first choice isn't in bloom. By adding extra flowers to your contract, you can eliminate the hassles and headaches that come from not being able to get your first choice in flowers. Your best bet is to think about the shape and color flowers you want, not the type.

Not asking enough questions about the wedding venue.

When looking at wedding halls, you want to make sure you get one that is going to work the best for your event. By now, you probably have a few questions you want to ask about the hall to help you gauge whether it is going to work for you or not. The key is asking the same questions of everyone associated with the hall. Oftentimes, you get different answers from different people. Gathering the information from everyone allows you to make an informed decision.

Some of the questions you might want to ask include:

  • Do you have any upcoming renovation or construction projects planned?
  • How many weddings do you have in one day?
  • Who is going to be available to help me on the day of my wedding?
  • Will there be any changes made to the landscaping or facilities before the day of my wedding?

By avoiding the mistakes above, you can make sure your wedding goes off without a hitch.
