Planning outdoor wedding is no easy task. It is only natural to screw up along the way. Wedding planning has its challenges but the real monster to deal with is an outdoor wedding because now you have so many other aspects to take into consideration. If you are planning outdoor wedding, be sure to never make the following mistakes. Let’s get started.
Planning Before Budgeting
Every couple dreams of having the wedding of their dreams but weddings are expensive therefore it is very likely that you will have to cut back on a few elements if you are on a budget. Setting a budget is crucial to any kind of planning. With a wedding, things can get out of hand really fast. A set budget will enable you to make bookings according to the amount that you can spend on everything from your dress to the venue to the vendors to catering; a budget is extremely necessary in order to prioritize expenses. Start with a budget so you are not left broke by the time you are done planning.
Not Having a Backup Plan
A backup plan is absolutely crucial with planning outdoor wedding because if the weather is not on your side on the day of the event, your worst nightmare will very quickly become reality. Be prepared for untimed surprises such as rain and make backup preparations just to be sure. Be sure to invest in a tent because the extra saved money is not worth it if your whole event gets ruined. Besides, second venues generally cost lesser and their fee is refundable.
It is true weddings are nerve wracking but this is the time you need to practice all your stress reducing exercises because being finicky over unnecessary details might possibly enable you to singlehandedly ruin everything by turning into bridezilla. Be sure to take it easy because everything will not go according to plan. The sooner you realize it, the better it will be for you to deal with. Try to let things go and not letting your nerves get the best of you.
Ignoring the Guests
There is no celebration without a crowd, is there? When throwing a wedding, your guests are the most important part of your big day because you as a host want to make them a part of your big day. Be sure to keep their comfort in mind when planning your wedding for example arrangements according to the weather, terrain, other needs, etc.
Getting Carried Away
It is easy to arrange an even that lasts all day and the whole city is invited to be a part of it because you are happy and you want everyone to be a part of the celebration. Remind yourself to not get carried away because it can get overwhelming.
Having a Wedding Planner on board is crucial for your outdoor wedding. The most important day of your life should be perfect but if it doesn’t go according to plan, don’t fret over it and enjoy the glitches because all the memories count so just make them happy ones.
