You want your wedding day to be perfect just like from a romantic movie. But how do you know that you are not making some of the most common wedding day mistakes or blunders? In all the excitement and running around, it is easy to overlook certain important elements that can actually make your wedding fall flat on the face. Donít panic! Here are 5 common wedding mistakes and tips to avoid them.
One of the biggest wedding mistakes is that your wedding doesnít reflect your personality. Donít select a wedding look right out of a book. It should in some way reflect your life and what you like. For example, your wedding has lilies and you just donít like it. Well, why are they there? The smart thing to do is go for wedding themes. Select the one that you like and then you can always personalize it.
Most of us donít understand this term when it comes to weddings and that probably includes you as well. A bit of extravagance is fine, but donít go overboard. Wedding is a big business, so you will find a lot of people who will try to extract a little bit extra from you. Give someone the responsibility to handle finances carefully. Donít cross your budget when it comes to wedding dress or even the wedding cake. Save the money for your new life. Itís a much smarter thing to do.
Thinking "It Could Never Rain on MY Wedding Day"
Yes, we all hope that way but what if your plan goes wrong? Do you have a backup plan? If you are having an outdoor wedding, make sure you have an alternate location, just in caseÖGive the responsibility to a reliable person with the list of vendors, phone numbers and expected time for arrival in case the main venue doesnít work out. Donít forget to bring a bridal emergency kit for last minute snafus.
Having that horrible hangover
Whether your friends by mistake planned a bachelor/bachelorette parties for the night before the wedding or in the excitement you got carried away, the last thing you need before the wedding day is a hangover. Imagine, getting up with a headache, puffy skin, fuzzy head or worse an upset stomach. Just do yourself a favor, donít drink before the wedding day. It will save you a lot of trouble.
Not Involving Your Better Half
Remember, the wedding day is for the both of you. Right from the venue selection to thewedding decorations, your partner is as excited as you. Involve your partner in the planning, selection and sometimes even shopping. Set aside time for weekly meetings where you both can catch up with all updates. Let this special day bring out the love and connection that you both share.
