Going over the budget.
Make one and stick to it. Without any sort of budget that will hold your wedding plans together at some point or so, you don’t really have much to run with in the first place so make sure that you set out the necessary plans and arrangements with your partner about how much you will be allotting and spending out for the wedding plans and services before you even get started. It is crucial that you are both on board with everything that is about to go down for the wedding given that this is commonly something that both you will have to pay for one way or the other. Another thing worth knowing is the reality that professionals like the Bristol wedding photographers you are planning to book for the wedding day will most certainly not come cheap at any point in time. Going over the budget can knock your plans over and can possibly stop you from going ahead and making the most out of the money that you have set aside for the wedding. Come up with one and stick to it no matter what happens.
Wedding date changes.
Being fickle minded will not help you one bit as a bride. Before you establish any decisions such as something as important as the main wedding date, make sure that you have already taken into consideration what the possible affecting factors might turn out to be from the season or time of the year, to the availability of professionals like Bristol wedding photographers, to the venues that will still allow you to book them, and so on and so forth. The suppliers and vendors that you will be hiring out are bound to have tight schedules of their own and you might come off as a bit of a nuisance client if you keep changing the dates all of the time. Also take note of the fact that this means extra expenses on your end in terms of reprinting the invitations and sending out erratums. It will open up a large can of worms that you can definitely do away with if you stick to the plan. If some people can’t make it, then they can’t make it. Don’t structure your wedding plans around them especially if they have already been established or set on stone.
Rushing through the venue selection.
Take the time to really take these site tours seriously and to really look into what available locations you have on hand so far. You need to know for sure that you are taking this in stride and that you don’t rush ahead and book the first venue that you happen to chance upon. The regret will be really difficult to live with and more than that, the fact that most of the down payments are non-refundable will turn out to be an even bigger blow that you ought to try to go ahead and live without as much as you possibly can.
No plan B for outdoor weddings.
Outdoor weddings are tricky and temperamental and you need to be prepared in the event of rain even if the weatherman says otherwise. You won’t really know what hit you until the first few drops start falling so you might as well come prepared as much as possible.
