5 Biggest Wedding Planning Myths
There are certain rules in wedding planning that you should never forget and always follow. For example, you need to start planning and organizing everything as early as you can. Also, you should calculate your wedding budget and to never leave the beauty treatments, diets and workouts a day before your wedding. However, there are some rules and common believes about wedding planning that are nothing more than myths. In this article we will present you with the most popular of them.
- DIY is Cheap – That is only true if you already have the supplies for decorations and stationary or if you can get them for free. If that is not the case, you will need to spend some money on materials. Yes, they won’t be as expensive as the ready products. However, the time you are going to invest making them will probably make you wish you have done things differently.
- Wedding Planners are Pricey – Wedding planners don’t only help you pick flowers, decorations and colours. They will also follow the budget you have set. In addition, they will do it like no one else since they are more experienced in wedding planning and are familiar with the prices of the different cakes, dresses, wedding services and etc.
- My Friends Will Make Good Wedding Vendors – If some of your friends has style and a taste in fashion, that does not necessarily make him or her a good wedding vendor. Those of you who are worried that hiring a professional will be too expensive for them should ask around. There are always good local wedding vendors who will charge you less for their services.
- The Number of Groomsmen Should be Equal to That of the Bridesmaids – Do not follow this myth. In most cases, one of the partners has much more friends than the other. That only leads to unwanted bridesmaids or groomsmen who are only at the wedding to take a missing spot.
- Always Invite Back – If you have attended the wedding of another couple, don’t feel pressured to invite them back. They may like you more than they like them. Nevertheless, be polite and simply tell them that you won’t be able to invite them because of your limited wedding budget, for example.
