Wedding Do’s & Dont’s
Wedding Planning Do’s & Don’ts
Here is a good summary of what you should and should not be doing when you are planning your wedding.
Wedding Planning Must Do’s
Plan your wedding thoroughly, down to all the last little details. The best way to do this is to follow a wedding plan. Give yourself a “timeline” in which you need to get bookings made, or fittings done by.
You do not always have to spend a lot of money to have a beautiful wedding. Sometimes, less is more, if done correctly. It can be very easy to overspend without even knowing that you are overspending. Set a budget upfront and try stick to it as much as possible but do a bit of research before hand to get an idea of the cost of these types of items. Don’t put R1000 for a wedding dress, only to then go shopping and realise that the R1000 wasn’t a good figure for a dress.
It is very important to use your wedding planning guide to co-ordinate everything that you do. This will ensure that everything that needs to be done is done. Have a list of phone numbers to supply to the venues coordinator on the day, so that they can follow up on items if needed.
Wedding Planning Don’ts
Do not Rush
Don’t rush into making any quick decisions. Take your time and make sure that the decisions you make are good ones, especially when it comes to choosing professionals, such as photographers or caterers.
Cheap is not always good
Hiring cheap professionals may not always be the right decision. Some things are worth paying that little bit extra for. Remember, a good picture can bring back amazing thoughts and memories, and a bad one will bring back nothing.
Get it in writing
Always get everything in writing. This will avoid the you said this – I said that argument with suppliers
You do not have to invite every single person you have ever known to your wedding. Remember that this is your special day! Spend it with those people who mean the most to you and your spouse and will make your wedding special for the two of you.
