Budget Properly

Budgeting properly can help a lot because money is usually a factor in a lot of issues that can arise. Sometimes things get overlooked, and people can either miss something going in the budget, or there are last-minute add-ons people do not think about. Budgeting what your total budget is and breaking it up into categories can help make sure you do not go over that limit. And if you save money in one category, it can either go into another category or go towards your honeymoon! It always feels good to save money, especially if it can go towards another experience that you both will enjoy!

You can use many great resources to help with budgeting and planning, such as

Money matters, so budget wisely to avoid surprises. There are wedding venues that include catering and things like tables and chairs, often saving you money in the long run. Other wedding venues, require tables, chairs, linens, and even glasses and silverware to be rented. Understand exactly what your wedding venue will provide to eliminate unexpected expenses.

Consider a Wedding Planner/Decorator or Download Apps

You would not have to worry about any last-minute details or décor setup the day off. You can rest easy!

You can utilize technology with apps such as The Knot to help with the planning process. Wedding Venues, such as the Suffolk Conference Center can help share ideas and vendor recommendations.

Do not Overthink or Compare

Currently social media has gotten us to get in the habit of comparing what we do with everyone else. Just because one couple did one thing does not mean you have to do it. Some couples may stress about this because they want to ensure it is as good as the next. But you must remember that the wedding is your day, not anyone else’s. Having a wedding suited to you is as special as it can get; do not try to make it exactly like someone else’s!  Stress less about trying to make everyone else happy when all that matters is making you and your fiancé happy!

Let your personalities inspire you while planning; find your vision!

Let both your personalities inspire each other when planning! This can help if you are stressing about the “little details” and trying to come up with ways to make it personable. Making small details that are suited to the couple makes it so much sweeter. Little ideas like:

  • Instead of table numbers, you can name the tables after places you have had dates or your favorite love songs.
  • Have your college flags at the beginning of the ceremony to show which side the families should sit on.
  • Have personalized cards at every seat that helps your guests get to know both of you.
  • Interactive games that are personalized to the bride and groom make it fun and interactive for the guests! Crossword puzzle templates and he said, she said printouts can be easily purchased through Etsy!

Focus on your Marriage!

Couples can get lost in the planning, and the stress free wedding can become overwhelming for both parties. Remember, you are a team working towards the same goal. Sometimes if the planning is all on one person, that could be very stressful for your partner. Understandably, some decisions may be for the bride or just for the groom, but make sure that you are present when it comes time for decisions to be made by both of you.
