Oh the lovely joys of wedding planning. So do you DIY it or hire someone out? In either case here are a few tips to help you out so your hair stays full and lovely.
-Utilize a wedding timeline: This is not one of those fly by the seat of your pants type events. Make an outline of what’s going to happen and stick to it.
– Delegate: If someone else is fully capable of doing it and you trust them completely, then loosen the reigns just a tad and let them handle it.
-Figure out your priorities: Figure out what needs to be done and when, so you’re not running around trying to do things like get a marriage license on the day of your wedding.
-Think about vendor meals: This is another thing people forget all about. When you’re planning the number of people who are going to be eating, make sure you include a few for vendors.
-Establish “No Wedding Talk” Time ASAP: Wedding planning is stressful and can take over your entire life and relationship. Make sure you have some sacred time to just be with your love and enjoy life.
-Prep your emergency bag: Your wedding is going to be an extremely long day. You may need to pack a few supplies to help you get through it all. I’m talking about: stain remover, a minature sewing kit, double sided tape, safety pins, bobby pins and other items to touch up your makeup later in the evening.
– Prepare tip envelopes for vendors: It’s not uncommon to tip the vendors at your wedding. My personal suggestion is to prep tip envelopes and give them to someone you trust, so they can make sure your vendors get them on the big day.
