Tip 2: Keep Glam Simple

One of the most stressful things any bride will endure is her wedding day glam. From hair to makeup, the process can seem a tad overwhelming. If you plan on using a professional team of makeup artists and hair stylists, then it’s important to be upfront with them during your consultation. If you’re not sure which direction you’d like to head in, in terms of your wedding day glam, then the best choice is to keep your look simple! This will make you feel much more comfortable and won’t consume too much time when preparing on the big day!

Tip 3: Keep It Positive

The best wedding planning tip to follow is to always keep it positive! Sometimes when wedding planning, couples tend to get caught up in the details. Although details are extremely important and will make your big day a fairytale come true, it’s important to always be positive when something doesn’t work out as planned! Always keep pushing through and just think: you’re getting married to the love of your life and you’ll have these incredible memories for a lifetime!

3 Wedding Planning Don'ts

Weddings are a milestone occasion that are enjoyed by all! Whether you’re attending a ceremony on the beach or at your local catering hall, it’s truly an event like no other. Although there are many wedding-based blogs that tell couples things they should do to make their wedding planning easier, there are some steps you shouldn’t take in order to avoid any wedding day catastrophes. Let us explain:

Don’t #1: DIY Your Entire Wedding

Yes, it’s a wonderful feeling to create a list of DIY projects for your wedding — but sometimes they will take a little longer than expected. When this happens, your centerpieces will eventually become more important than your overall reception. Don’t stress the small stuff, though — look for ways to cut the DIY time in half by renting centerpieces either from the venue, a local party planning company, or from your best friend! Afterall: you, the couple, should be the stars of the show — and your centerpieces should be a close second!

Don’t #2: Invite Everyone You Know

Sometimes the most stressful part of a wedding isn’t the seating chart — it’s the people you’re thinking about inviting. When you begin to invite everyone you know, not only will you have to have a big enough space to accommodate everyone — but your budget will increase significantly, too. Think about it: when you invite one guest, automatically assume that they’ll bring a date — which now makes that two guests. Before you start jotting names down, start inviting your family members first, then work your way to close friends. Sooner or later, you’ll see it will be a packed house before you know it!

Don’t #3: Pick Your Favorite Dishes

Well, you can pick your favorite dishes to be on the menu — but you should also keep other guests’ appetites in mind, too. To start, think about dietary restrictions such as vegetarian/vegan options, as well as gluten-free/dairy-free options. Besides enjoying your wedding, you also want your guests to be full — and not looking forward to stopping at the nearest fast-food restaurant after the big day is over. Of course, pick your favorite meals, too — because afterall, it’s your big day and you deserve it, but also be mindful!
