Wedding planning: 10 things NOT to do
You’re getting married. Now it’s time to show the world how amazing you are at wedding planning. Let me help by telling you 10 things you should NOT do…
1. Don’t start blindly going to see wedding venues, without having a firm idea of the type of wedding you want.
2. Don’t go to see lots of venues, get yourself all worked up, and then stop looking entirely… for the next three months.
3. Don’t try on wedding dresses, again, with no idea of what you’d like, and then spend 25 hours on the internet, trying to get an idea of what you’d like. This will leave you confused.com.
4. Don’t leave it too late to do the things that need time. For example, don’t have a look for photographers, and then forget all about it. Do email them and ask their availability.
5. Don’t get in touch with photographers when they are all already booked up. This will leave you stressed.com.
6. The same goes for musicians, if you’re planning to have live music on your big day. Book ‘em baby.
7. Don’t leave it too late for wedding dresses, either. They say to buy it 6-9 months before your wedding.
8. Don’t sit back and put your feet up once you’ve got the dress either. The chances are that it needs to go off for alterations – they say to leave about 3 months for that.
9. We all hate paperwork. But do not avoid it in the lead-up to your wedding. Otherwise you might not end up actually getting hitched at all! And, let’s be honest, do you want to do this all over again?
10. Finally, whatever you do, don’t focus more on your blog than your actual wedding. That really is a recipe for disaster.
