Our top tips for avoiding these all-too-common wedding fails

We all hope that our wedding day goes without a hitch.

However, the thing with wedding prep, is that it is all too easy to make mistakes which can have an impact in the long run.

So, what are these mistakes and are they avoidable?

Let’s take a look at the most common issues that could arise during the lead up to your big day.

Rushing any DIY jobs

There are plenty of us now who love the idea of having personal touches during their wedding day.

The only trouble with DIY jobs is that many of them take time.

The worst thing that you could do is to rush any of these DIY jobs, as you could end up making mistakes or even ruining your plans altogether.

Leaving you in the lurch when you already have so many other things to think about.

Allowing your parents to interfere

It is all too common a scenario that brides and grooms allow their parents to have slightly too much of a say in their wedding plans.

This is difficult, of course, because often your parents are likely to be putting some money towards your wedding celebrations.

Just because this is the case, that doesn’t mean that they should be able to boss you both around.

After all, it is your day, not theirs.

Not thinking of things as a couple

Of course, when it comes to making decisions for your wedding day, there are some that you make alone.

However, if you can make the decision together, then you need to do it together.

Else there could be some feelings of resentment or anger about the plans for the big day.

Forgetting your emergency bag

Every bride needs an emergency bag to get them through the day.

This usually will contain make-up, perfume, plasters and of course, tissues.

Failing to do this may mean that you end not able to touch up your make up throughout the day, particularly as you greet your evening guests.

Focusing on all the small details

As you plan a wedding you are going to want to make sure that everything you want is in place.

However, the worst thing that you can do is fixate yourself on the smallest details possible.

Of course, there are some decisions that are important, however, you are going to find that as the day goes by, those small things were not quite as important as they seemed.

Asking too much of your bridesmaids

Your bridesmaids are there for a reason.

They are the ladies that you love, trust and rely on.

They are going to be there for you not only during the day itself, but also the run up too.

However, the thing to remember is that they have a life away from your wedding.

They have families, jobs and their own things going on.

If they can’t help with something, then don’t lose your temper with them.

So, there you have it, some of the most common mistakes you can make during wedding day prep (and the day itself).

Try your best to avoid them and you will be sure to have the best wedding day possible.
