19 Apr What Are The Worst Things About Planning Your Wedding?
Whilst the majority of wedding planning is pretty exciting, any bride and groom will tell you that at times, it can get a little bit tedious.
Not to mention stressful.
If you are newly engaged, then why not check out our list of some of the worst things about planning your wedding, just so you know what things may be making you feel like pulling your hair out on the big day.
The guest list
It is one of the first things that you think about when you get married, apart from the venue and date, and it can be one of the most tricky.
This is particularly true if you are limited on space, as you may need to be a little bit ruthless on who you invite.
Another problem is when it comes to thinking about whether or not to include children on your guest list, a cause for arguments and some possibly upset customers too.
Your wedding party are supposed to be there to help you throughout the day and the run up.
But, they can be a source of stress too.
You may be worried about how to pick, or whether to just opt for flower girls rather than bridesmaids.
The thing to remember is that it is your day, and if anyone is offended about your choices, then perhaps they are not as good a friend as you thought.
Possibly one of the biggest sources of stress for those getting married, your seating plan is an integral part of your wedding breakfast.
There are going to be people who don’t know anyone, those who hate each other and family members that you could quite happily pop in the cupboard, but somehow you need to figure out the best way to seat all these people.
Don’t forget that chances are, when you have just got everything sorted, someone will pull out, meaning that you need to think about it all over again.
Most people hope during the wedding planning process, that they are just left to their own devices, planning away without any hassle.
However, chances are, you will have family members (parents in particular) who want to give their “advice”.
Failure to listen to this could cause a huge row, but equally, they need to realise that it is your day and not theirs.
The key is definitely getting the right balance between the two approaches and see if you can just agree.
Wedding planning should be fun, but if you are finding that it is all getting on top of you both then the time has come to take a break.
Do something fun with each other for the day or evening and ban any wedding talk.
That way, you can remember more about why you love each other so much and forget the stress that has come along with planning a wedding.
