The fact is true, Pinterest boards and our dreams are tempting enough that allows us to anticipate our wedding day longingly. But another definite fact is, such boards and pleasant thoughts won’t make the day stress-free and as free-flowing as you think. When it comes to implementing the plan in reality, a lot can go wrong. Does not matter if your wedding is a year away or just around at the end of the month, take a note of these common mistakes you need to avoid for the best execution of your big day.
Being too “economical” on postage for invitations It may not look too big of a deal, but it’s important to check if your guests are receiving the invitations on time. According to The Knot—an online platform for personal wedding planner, it’s a surprise how many to-be brides will use just a single stamp for all the invitations and drop the whole pack into the mailbox. The postal service will return you the invites, with that unpleasant “insufficient postage” sign rubber stamped. To mount the frustration it will take at least three weeks along with additional bucks to get the invites going. To avoid the problem, take the sealed invites to the post office and have one card weighed. Also see square-shaped invitations call for additional postage, also due to the shape besides the weight element.
Skimming through the contracts No other option but read everything on the contract presented in front of you. Weddings are once-a-lifetime event and needs time, capital and effort investment greatly. Never allow yourself to be taken for granted, even worse to be left with no backup plan. Even if you are not an expert in reading and understanding the contracts, do your best and further hire a professional to do the work of reading and analyzing the minor details. Ask for assistance from a family member or close friend.
Getting engulfed by Pinterest The prospect of mapping your whole wedding on Pinterest is exciting enough, but it’s better not to cross the line or risk yourself of getting lost and confused due to the bombardment of a large number of ideas. It’s simple: once you have finalized your decision regarding something, just go with it unchanged. Brainstorming new ideas can go on endlessly if you do not call it a time yourself. Do note not everything we see on Pinterest is practical. A large number of DIY ideas are unrealistic, especially when it comes to planning weddings, where ideas belong to large events organized on expensive budgets. For instance, asking a florist to recreate a $400 centerpiece for just $20, is straightforward impossible.
Overspending on flowers A plethora of beautiful and exotic looking flowers can be obtained throughout the year. Do remember, going for seasonal flowers will not only save your pockets from spending unnecessarily, but are also easier to find.
Skimping on drinks When planning the wedding budget allocation, do accept a considerable portion of your capital will run on drinks. An open bar at the reception is an exciting way to entertain the guests, but not every couple can afford an all-night open bar. So how to pick alternates? Consider offering a fixed number of major cocktail, beer, or wine bottles and ask the venue for corkage. This will save unopened bottles that can be returned to the caterer.
Overstretching the event Industry experts consent on the fact that a five-hour wedding event is the ideal time for family and guests to entertain and leave the venue in high spirits. The evening should always end on a high and with a natural feel. Whereas party enthusiasts or close friends, can resume their fun time back at the house or hotel.
