How to make wedding management and planning easier, whether you’re the bride or plannerLanghams
Planning a wedding is a notoriously stressful and time-consuming experience. It’s no surprise that so many brides admit to wanting to elope as the day gets closer. Of course, you want your wedding day to be perfect, but that doesn’t mean you should lose sleep over it. Here’s how to make your wedding planning and wedding management process easier from start to finish.
- Set your budget
This is, hands down, the most important part about planning your wedding. Knowing what you can spend will determine your venue, how many people you invite and even what kind of reception you can hold. Too many brides don’t set a budget and end up looking at venues, dresses and decorations they cannot afford, which can ruin your mood and make you feel like you’re missing out.
- Decide what’s important
Every bride will have one aspect of her wedding she holds dear. It could be the need to walk down the aisle in the perfect dress, have a first dance that blows guests away or to offer a wedding menu that people will rave about for months to come. Structure your budget so you have more to spend on the things that count and look at more affordable options for things you aren’t very invested in (for example, e-vites can replace printed ones and fake flowers can replace the expensive real deal).
- Ask for help
If you are planning your wedding yourself, you’ll have a thousand and one things to take care of before the big day. Don’t hesitate to ask for help from friends and family members or even outsource certain tasks like decorating the venue, setting it up and cleaning up afterwards, or dealing with caterers. If you select Langhams – this part is all taken care of by our specialist team, as part of your package 😉
- Centralise communications
Whether you’ve hired a wedding planner or are doing things yourself, you need to keep track of all correspondence and payments being made. There are many online and phone-based planning apps available to the modern bride to make the task of keeping track of everything easier.
The only tears you should shed on and leading up to your wedding day should be ones of joy. Managing your wedding well is the key to escaping stress and misery, so make sure you do it well.
