Remember, your wedding is a celebration of your love. I think you will agree that prioritize what matters to you most will allow you to enjoy the journey! Most people think planning their own wedding is simple, until they are overbudget. In this article we will focus on 5 planning mistakes to avoid when planning a wedding.

Your wedding day is a reflection of your unique love story and the commitment you are making to each other. It's important to focus on what truly brings you joy and makes your hearts sing. Whether it's the meaningful vows you exchange, the presence of loved ones, or the little details that make your day special, hold onto those moments and cherish them.

Embrace the journey of planning and preparation, as it is a beautiful chapter in the story of your love. Keep in mind that the most important thing is the love you share, and let that be the guiding light through every decision and every moment of your wedding day.





Here are the 5 top common “Oopsies” to avoid when planning a wedding:


When it comes to budgeting, don't skip the crucial step of creating a solid budget. Sit down with your partner, whip up a budget that matches your goals, and steer clear of the horror of not having a budget at all. Forget about comparing your budget to the Joneses', focus on what floats your boat, and don't forget to factor in sneaky expenses like taxes, tips, and surprise twists and turns!

Organization is key to staying accountable!

When it comes to organizing your wedding, juggle all the puzzle pieces before circling a date on your calendar. Dive into availability, cash flow, weather vibes, and guest voyages to nail down the perfect moment. Don't forget to sleuth through contracts before penning any deals with suppliers to dodge any sneaky surprises. And hey, feel free to pass the baton or call in a wedding pro if the stress levels hit the roof!


wedding guests
Remember to consider the needs of your guests.

When throwing a wedding, make sure everyone can join in on the fun, including those with superpowers like food allergies. Sprinkle some extra thought into making sure everyone stays comfy and cozy, from the sunshine to the seating, and everything in between. Let the good times roll for all your guests!

Avoid trends and put your on stamp on your wedding.

Personalization and priorities are key in creating a wedding that truly reflects you as a couple. Avoid blindly following trends and instead choose elements that showcase your personalities and preferences. Stay focused on the big picture and don't get bogged down by minor details. Remember to take care of yourselves throughout the planning process by scheduling time for relaxation and communication.


Finally, gear up for surprises by prepping a bad-weather plan and keeping snacks and drinks handy. Keep the schedule chill - leave room for spontaneity and welcome unexpected fun with open arms. Steer clear of blunders, stay authentic, and craft a wedding day that's pure magic, celebrating your love in style!


By avoiding these common mistakes and staying true to yourselves, you'll be able to create a memorable and joyful wedding day that celebrates your love in the most meaningful way.
