Secrets Your Wedding Planner Wants You to Know: Part 1

Jul 12, 2017

If you are in the middle of wedding planning then chances are you are in the throes of figuring out hundreds of details from invitations to decorations, wedding and party rentals, to food. In order to ensure nothing gets forgotten, you may want to invest in a wedding planner to help you cross your t’s and dot your i’s.

However, there are some things you should know before you get someone else involved in your wedding planning. To ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible, here we have compiled a list of a few things your wedding planner would want you to know about your dream wedding.

Hosting a large wedding may actually be easier than hosting a small wedding

Surprisingly enough, hosting a large wedding doesn’t have to be as headache inducing as you might have thought. This is because it is often easier to get wedding decor and accessories in bulk, and vendors often have a lot of experience catering to large groups rather than small. So don’t let your large guest list get in the way!

Choose your wedding party wisely

We know how tempting it can be to ask many people to be in your bridal party, but having a lot of people can simply cause excess stress on your big day. Instead, you need to choose people who have similar ideas and thoughts as you so they can help you with as much planning as possible.

Create your budget before signing any contracts

This is so everyone is on the same page when it comes to what you can and cannot afford. It is incredibly tempting to sign up for things you can’t necessarily afford, but this can only cause problems down the line if you accidentally sign up for something a bit pricier than you expected.

Have realistic expectations

It is all too easy to go online to get inspiration for your wedding, but you should limit your time as these photos can give you unrealistic expectations. Grab a few pictures of the overall theme you are going for, and then spend time talking to your wedding planner to bring these dreams to life with your budget, guest list, and venue all in mind.
