10 Most Common Mistakes to Avoid on Your Wedding Day

Wedding Day

Your wedding day is supposed to be the most special, amazing, beautiful day of your life. However, it’s not going to be perfect with ease, no matter how hard you try to ensure that everything goes off without a hitch, something is bound to go wrong. It is either the program starts very late or the DJ might play a song you absolutely told him not to play or some of your family members or that of your in-laws might not be given special recognition the way they want it, someone might drink too much and get a little high. While you can’t control everything, there are mistakes and imperfections you can avoid making on your wedding day. Listed here are the ten most common mistakes to avoid on your wedding day:

  1. Interfering with your vendor’s job

Wedding vendors have lots of experience behind them and that is the reason you hire them in the first place. So, do not try to interfere in the things they do best. Though it is good you discuss all your ideas with them and keep a watch on their execution, but interfering with each and every detail is not the best way to get the best out of them.

  1. Change into Flats

If there is one thing past brides agree upon, it’s the fact that wearing heels all night long is somewhat less than comfortable. If you want to wear them, wear them for the ceremony and pictures and change to fun flats for the reception. Nothing makes breaking it down on the dance floor less enjoyable than uncomfortable shoes and potential blisters. You don’t want to spend your honeymoon hobbling around your hotel with sore feet, so do yourself this small favour. If you need further convincing, here it is; changing into flats means you get two new pairs of shoes!

  1. Let the DJ do His Job

It’s all right to ask your DJ to avoid playing music with inappropriate lyrics so your Family members and any children at your reception aren’t offended in any way, but don’t confuse the DJ. You probably aren’t a DJ, so don’t think you suddenly have the ability to decide how to play music to make a great party. Leave it up to your DJ to play great music that people will love at the appropriate time.

  1. Assuming that your parents will pay for everything

Your parents will obviously want the best for you and will definitely spend it on your wedding, but you cannot expect them to fulfill all your whims and fancies. You and your partner are expected to shoulder at least half the expenses, too. Or, at least don’t overburden them with too many demands.

  1. Not Supplying Enough Information

No one likes feeling confused, and your guests won’t know the wedding location the way you do. Offer suggestions of things to do and information on getting around, “and if you’re having a destination event or weekend-long celebration, hand out itineraries telling everyone where they need to be and when at the right time without any complain.

  1. Missing out on photos that you really wanted

Your wedding might be the first time you’ve had all your uni friends together in one place for years or family from around the world might be arriving. This all needs to be captured so get prepped in advance. “Make sure that you give your photographer a full list of any photographs that you want from the day. Give them this info in plenty of time and ask the ushers and bridesmaids to be on hand to help round people up because this can save so much time.”

  1. Not handling your guest list well

Depending on your budget, you should come up with a realistic number of guests you can have at your wedding. There is no point in planning for 100 guests and then inviting 150. There will be a shortage of space, seating arrangements and food, and would end up causing a strain on your pockets.

Learn to prioritise and invite the people who matter to you the most. You can also invite a certain number of your distant acquaintances to different wedding functions, not all. So, instead of cutting the guest list short, you just smartly divide the list.

  1. Make Priorities

One of the biggest mistakes brides and grooms make when planning their wedding is not prioritizing. At the end of the day, what’s most important to you about your wedding day? Is it hand-embossed invitations that cost more than your venue or is it a photographer that takes beautiful photos? What you spend your money on is important. Don’t blow your budget on minor details when there are things so important you’ll regret them later on. Laughter and memories are far more important than other details of your wedding day. Know which ones mean the most to you and focus your budget there.

  1. Procrastination

Too many brides make the mistake of waiting until the last minute to finalize details for the wedding. This causes you to stretch yourself too thin, trying to finalize last-minute details, have beauty treatments, engage in events such as your rehearsal and attend spa days and beauty treatments in the final days prior to your wedding. Don’t do it. Make a list and check it every day. Finalize plans as soon as possible to avoid having so many last-minute things on your to-do list.

  1. Not having a budget

Planning a wedding without a budget is the first disaster you can begin with. How can you order things or plan them out when you don’t know how much you are willing to spend? So, before you jump out and say “we want this” or “we want that”, both the families should have a proper discussion on the budgets.
