5 Biggest Wedding Mistakes

As we are moving through the motions of the most exciting time of our lives, it may be difficult to stay on track with your dream wedding goals and plans. The excitement kicks in, you’ve said “YES!” to the love of your life and now the planning begins. This post is to save you beauty bride-to-be’s from the most commonly made mistakes

Making Plans Before You Set a Budget

It is very easy to write list after list and idea after idea about your dream day. From the number of guests, to the table top accessories and even picking out your dream dress and venue. But, before you start the brainstorming, be sure to set your budget. We can not stress the importance of this enough. There is nothing worse than picking out your DREAM venue and dress and realizing that it simply is not within your budget.

How to avoid this: Make a rough draft budget of three areas, your bare minimum, your middle ground and your max. Doing this will paint a rough draft of your top dreams as well as what your savings effective minimum approach could get you. Focus on the order for your dream day planning; budget, guest list, and venue. Tackling each item in this order will lessen the stress in planning your big day. And, you may even be shocked at what you can find listed for the lower end of your budget. Happy Researching Queens!

Put Your Everyone Else’s¬†Ideas Before Yours

We see this time and time again, whether its on “Say Yes To The Dress” or in your daily wedding planning. Brides are constantly being conflicted with taking everyones ideas or thoughts on every aspect of the process. But remember, this is your day! You are in charge, this is your moment to make your wildest and loving dreams come to life. Spending your time worrying about what everyone else will think, what they will like or not like, is going to take the joys out of planning your wedding day.

How to avoid this: You have a few options to be honest, you can put your foot down and plan the wedding yourself, or allow those dearest to your heart to join in on the planning on certain aspects like the bachelorette, the accessories or decorations. But remember bride-to-be, this is your day ♥

Not Completing Beauty Trials

Ladies, we cannot stress this enough. Trial sessions are essential for your hair and makeup on your big day. This includes facials, spray tans, eyebrows, lip injections and lash extensions. Do your research before you are completing a trial and do a trial before you book! The last thing you want to do is show up with orange skin, misplaced lashes and cakey makeup.

How to avoid this: Instagram and Pinterest is a GREAT way to source beauty trials and esthetician’s. Make sure you book a consultation and remember, you get what you pay for. Your choice of makeup should highlight your natural beauty ūüôā You may have a friend who is great at doing her own makeup and hair, but remember, professionals are best at what they do.

Not Hiring a Videographer 

Wedding Photographers are never missed out on, to be honest, it is one of the first things that are booked, why? Because having photographs of your big day to look back on are a top priority. But, why not have a video to look back on all of those moments in between? Videographers are becoming a top demand in the wedding industry and for many reasons. Videos let you hear the music, your partners voice as you say your vows, they let you watch you and your bridal party rip up the dance floor and captures all of those special moments you may have missed. Be sure to research Videographers before crossing them off the list, the right one will make your dream day last forever.

Hiring a Friend instead of a Pro

This goes back to the hair and makeup and includes the full cycle of your wedding planning. Of course you want your Maid Of Honor and even your family and best friends to be apart of the planning process, but remember that there are a lot of finer details that go into planning your big day. Planners assist you with your budgeting, any legal contracts, vendor selection and follow up, day of coordination, and not to mention, they help you keep your vision in line and make it become a reality. Hiring a wedding planner will help you make your full wedding planning a little, or a lot, less stressful. They become your go-to person for every detail and hey, that’s why they are the pro!
