1. Guests come first
Estimate the approximate number of guests you’ll invite before settling on a venue.
2. Consider the weather
Guests have been known to skip out early from hotter-than-hot summer tent weddings and improperly heated winter loft receptions. Decide what would work better for you. Check multiple weather predictions and plan ahead. Of course, always have a plan B for unexpected weather conditions.
3. Lighten your List
Invite only the people you want to be present and avoid anyone who may turn your event into a miserable gathering. On top of that remember, half of your wedding expenses go to wining and dining your guests.
4. Prepare for rejection
Naturally, about 10 to 20 percent of the people you invite won’t attend and it’s okay.
5. One Step at a time
Do not attempt to schedule and do everything simultaneously. A priority list will save you lots of time and stress.
6. Provide accurate driving directions
Make sure the directions are the quicker and easier. Guests may get confused reaching your wedding location.
7. Spending in moderation
Be mindful when it comes to expenses. Keep in mind you need to save money for the upcoming honeymoon!
8. Be realistic with your time
Invest your time to the things that really matter and do not lose extraordinary amounts of time on little details. If you can’t decide on something, ask a trustworthy family member of friend of yours.
