When our friends get engaged, there are certain things we tell each of them. These are the wedding planning tips you might not have considered and we have found them to be true in all circumstances!
We have found that most Brides get so overwhelmed feeling like they have to do everything themselves. Don’t fall into that trap. Yes, the wedding does need your personal touch. Remember though, that your friends and family are probably eager to help. We always suggest delegating tasks that you aren’t as excited about to your fiancé or to a helpful friend. Ask your fiancé to get pricing information from bands. Put your friend in graphic design to work on designing your save-the-dates!
Especially with long engagements, it can be really helpful to wait to invite your bridesmaids and groomsmen to be apart of your bridal party. Speaking from experience, one of our Brides became really good friends with a girl (who is now one of her best friends) after she had already asked her bridal party. She wished more than anything that she could have included her in her day. Her story isn’t unique – we see a lot of times where bridesmaids or groomsmen have grown apart by the time the wedding rolls around and the interaction can feel forced on the wedding day.
Don’t get sucked into Pinterest! For Keli, she loved looking at color palettes and flowers, centerpieces and other design elements. Once she had pinned 15 million bouquets, we then realized we hadn’t even started on the craziness that was planning the guest list. In retrospect, we would have done the stuff we were least excited about first, so we could reward ourselves with dreaming about peonies and garden roses, or whatever it is that gets you excited!
I hope these wedding planning tips that you might not have considered were super helpful! Happy Planning!
