wedding-688924_1280When you’re wedding planning, family and friends will be throwing you advice left, right and centre. Whilst searching online at all the various blogs, articles and websites there will be plenty of words of wisdom for what you NEED to do. But what about what you don’t need to do?  It’s important to recognise what advice is  actually helpful and what advice should be avoided! See our tips below:

Wait for your dress to go on sale…

Don’t wait for flash sales. The longer you wait to buy the dress; the more expensive alterations may be if you need it back in a rush. You’ll also have the extra stress of waiting until the last-minute to have the final fitting. Plus, what if the dress of your dreams has now been sold?!?! Don’t risk it.

DIY it…

You may think you’ll save lots of cash DIY’ing your centre pieces and decorations but you’ll just end up spending a lot more time on arts and crafts. You also may end up spending more than you think on all the little bits and pieces. Remember, your time is money so spend it wisely. Sometimes you’re better off spending a little bit more and having free time to focus on more important matter. However, if you’re spending LOTS more then you probably should look around further till you settle.

Don’t worry about spending money this is once in a lifetime…

Without a shadow of a doubt your wedding is an important milestone in your life. However, your big day comes with a price tag. You don’t want to go completely all out and then after the wedding is over you find yourself in debt or you end up delaying buying important purchases. Determine your budget and most importantly stick to it to keep your spending at bay.

Your wedding day has to be original…

Some brides can get so caught up in this ‘original’ hype they end up over-doing it. You don’t have to go over the top and try include as many quirky little bits as possible to be ‘original.’ Every wedding is original in its own way because of your distinctive personalities as a couple.
