You want to look after all of your guests, without forgetting to look after yourselves too. Here are a few wedding related things you might be worrying about and our tips for crossing them off your list for good.
Rain, hail.. extreme heat, all things to worry about when you’ve planned an outdoor wedding. You can sit and pray that the weather will be beautiful, but best to have a plan B when things don’t go as you expected. You can consider a backup location, a clear marquee, or even some large market umbrellas to shade from the elements. It’s always best to know your season, and plan for the worst.
Is there a better option?
Worried that there is a better dress, a better venue, a better florist out there? Take our advise – once something is booked in, stop looking! You picked those options for a reason, so learn to love rather than regret your choices.
Wish you picked you picked this person rather than that one? Once your decisions are made, they are made. It would be very hurtful to ‘fire’ your bridal party once they already agreed to be a big part of your day. Trust in your original choices.
Is everyone going to get along?
Create a seating plan to the best you can, for your attending guests. Try to not get caught up in the drama of family dynamics & relationship issues, everyone will be on their best behaviour for your big day.
What have I forgotten to organise?
There are so many things to keep track of, while planning your wedding. Keep a detailed list or spreadsheet with all things that need to be done and check them off once completed. It will keep your mind at ease. Alternatively, hire a pro to oversee and manage the whole process for you, they know best everything that needs to be completed and in which timeframe, to have a perfectly planned wedding day.
Worried that your guests will under or over dress? To save the stress, put a dress code on the invite, you’ll save yourself the worry and many phone calls from guests asking what to wear. If guests dress incorrectly, it’s beyond your control, but always best to supply as much information as possible.
