If there’s any kind of person that knows how to organise a wedding it’s a wedding planner. Wedding planners work very hard to ensure that every aspect of the wedding goes like clockwork. They are meticulous in their approach, and incredibly well-organised.
We have put together some tips from the world’s best wedding planners. If you’re planning your own wedding, these tips may just help to make the day go more smoothly. Hopefully, they will be valuable to you, and should help you and your loved ones have the day of your lives.
One good tip is to use the information and expertise of your own providers. Ask your photographer, for example, for the name of a good florist. Because everyone in the industry is somehow connected, everyone should be able to help you by giving you the name or contact details of a provider that is next in the chain onyour to-do list.
Asking professionals makes sense, because they often talk to other people in the same industry. This means that you should be able to get the inside nod on a good provider for any part of the services that you need to make sure your wedding goes well.
Another important aspect is to prepare to feel a little bit rejected when you get the replies for your wedding invites. It is a well-known fact that most weddings are generally attended by 30% less than what people expect. This is just because weddings are like that, and people are busy and have commitments.
Just get ready for preparing yourself for feeling a little bit left out and rejected when you get your invites back. It is completely common to get around 70% of invites back on a successful level. Bear this in mind and when the invites start flowing in, you won’t be disappointed when certain people you wanted to come just can’t manage it. It is hardly ever personal and is simply a situation where people have commitments.
Never multitask with wedding planning. This is one of the biggest mistakes you can make, and people who try to do too much at once when planning the wedding will generally fail. Take things methodically, and put together a long and extensive to do list that both you and your partner can take part in.
Hit each part of the to-do list one by one, in a methodical manner, and you should find that you get close to making progress quickly. If you try to do too much at once, then you’re bound to miss something out or make a mistake, and this could affect the entire wedding.
Keep all the above tips in mind and you should be able to plan a very organised and successful wedding and event. It is all about planning and preparation. The people whose weddings go wrong generally try and fly by instinct, rather than making a clear plan and putting together a to-do list and calendar. Don’t let this happen to you, and plan your wedding carefully.
