8 Practical Tips for Wedding Planning

Planning your dream wedding can be an overwhelming task. It involves an array of decisions, from selecting the perfect venue to creating an exquisite guest list. However, with the right approach, planning a wedding can be an enjoyable and seamless process. Here are 8 lessor known tips that can enhance your wedding planning journey. 

1. Prioritize your guest list.

Before you start scouting for venues, prioritize your guest list. This will give you a clear idea of how big or small your venue should be. Having an accurate headcount will help you choose a space that can comfortably accommodate your guests.

2. Allocate an emergency fund.

Create an emergency fund by earmarking a small percentage of your budget for unforeseeable expenses. This will give you some leeway if last-minute expenses pop up, or if you overlook something vital.

3. Know your guests.

It’s essential to understand your guests’ dynamics. Knowing how many out-of-town guests will attend your wedding can help you prepare for their arrival and accommodate their needs. Anticipating the approximate number of guests who won’t attend can also aid in accurately catering and budgeting for your wedding.

4. Hire enough bar staff.

It’s not uncommon for guests to queue at the bar, waiting for their drinks. Ensure there are enough bartenders to cater to your guests’ drink requests. This will enhance their experience, and they won’t have to wait long for what they desire.

5. Organize your dress.

Practicing bustling your dress beforehand can save you valuable time. You can spend the time enjoying the festivities instead of trying to fix your train.

6. Have a rain plan!

Be prepared for inclement weather by having a rain plan in place. This will give you and your guests a sense of ease, knowing arrangements have been made if the weather doesn’t cooperate.

7. Transportation matters.

Consider shuttling your guests from the venue. It enhances their experience and ensures they can let loose at the reception without worrying about driving home afterward.

8. Seek professional help.

Hire a planner (or at least a coordinator)! So this may be a more popular tip, but it’s such an
important one, and not something you can typically do at the last minute. Even if you’re
incredibly organized and don’t have that many moving parts to your wedding, you still can’t be
everywhere at once, and you especially can’t enjoy the day if you’re running around handling
everything. Let a professional handle it for you.

Planning a wedding can be a memorable experience, and following these tips will make it less stressful. You can now start planning your special day with confidence.
