5 Expert Wedding Tips If You’re Not Hiring A Pro

November 7, 2018

Brides who have successfully planned their own wedding without going too crazy deserve full praise. It is no walk in the park after all. If you are thinking of taking this route, here are some tips to keep in mind. 

Work on your guest list first.

Finalising your guest list at the beginning of the wedding preparations may not always be feasible. However, having an estimate of your total number of guests is an essential factor to consider in terms of determining your working budget, how many invitations should be ordered and more importantly, what is the capacity for seating at your wedding reception. The” Knot” recommends allowing 25 to 30 square feet per guest to guarantee that the wedding venue will not feel cramped and will be able to accommodate tables, chairs, floral decorations, the dance floor and the movement of the waiters and photographers. 

Learn your limits and when to delegate.

Remember that your wedding day should be one of the happiest days of your life. If the wedding preparations are taking a toll on you emotionally, know that it is all right to ask for help. Make sure the groom is involved because it is his wedding day, too. Delegate simple tasks to willing friends and family. Lastly, it is best to know your limits and when it is time to hire a professional. Planning a wedding with a big guest list on your own may not be advisable when you are the bride. 

Invest in excellent wedding photographers.

After your wedding day, there will be wedding photos left to remind you of your special day. Make sure they will make you smile and happy, not cringe and regret. Scout the Internet for wedding photographers with an impressive portfolio. Pick creative photographers that can make you feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera and one that can capture the beautiful moments and emotions on your wedding day.

Book accommodations within your chosen wedding venue. 

It can be more convenient if you can book a wedding venue with a hotel. The close proximity saves will save you time and fuel and will make you feel physically and emotionally relaxed and refreshed before the wedding.

Take advantage of wedding packages.

Apart from the financial benefits, wedding packages also save you time, effort and energy from looking for a reputable vendor or supplier for each specific service. At the same time, this can lessen the stress of the whole wedding as you will be coordinating with fewer people.
