Wedding Planning With Unforeseen Obstacles

March 30, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

 

While getting engaged is very exciting, you might find yourself getting caught up in the initial stages of the planning and not prepared for some of the obstacles that may come with any life adventure. Below are some examples that many brides have ran into.

 

  • Some of you will not find this surprising, but don’t be alarmed if your fiancé does not seem heavily involved or excited about the wedding planning.

 

  • Many people are not expecting the cost associated with quality vendors such as DJs, caterers, and photographers. These are skilled individuals that are going to be compensated well for their experience and confidence in helping your day be a very memorable one.

 

  • Weddings often bring out the most opinionated individuals that feel planning needs to go their way. You just have to be mindful that it is your day and your budget depending on the circumstances. You can’t be all things to all people, so try to relax and make the best of it.

 

  • Be cautious of wedding websites and booking your vendors through them. Unfortunately there have been a lot of scams where people have put down large sums of deposits only to find out there was no such photographer, DJ, or videographer. If possible, always  try to meet the vendors in person to get a feel of their character and professionalism.

 

  • Procrastinating and making decisions at the last minute can be very costly and very stressful!  Try to plan well in advance to give you time to shop around and remove important decisions that require detailed planning and events.

 

  • Plan on lots of communication with all your vendors throughout the months leading up to your wedding. This will give you the opportunity to build rapport and set your expectations and overcome any obstacles you may face.

 

  • You might be surprised how quickly you find a dress, but unfortunately sometimes you will spend much more time looking for the accessories such as shoes and the veil. Once again preparation and planning is key to ensure a relaxed and enjoyable experience.
