The biggest struggles of planning a wedding can make it feel stressful, isolating, and overwhelming. However, there are multiple solutions to different problems. If you’ve hired a wedding planner, they can help you through each issue!
The wedding party can be an overwhelming piece of planning a wedding. How many people? Do they need to be even on each side? Am I leaving anyone out? Do I need to include my future in-laws? Should I purchase their attire or should that be on them?
As you can see, there are so many different elements that come into a wedding party. But, don’t stress! These are just pieces to the puzzle.
One of the new trends we are seeing to omit this struggle is to omit the wedding party altogether. This can reduce stress on yourself as well as on the budget! An alternative to a wedding party is having a crew that wears the same color dress instead of having them in your party. Additionally, you can still invite people to the wedding morning to get ready with you. In total, a wedding party isn’t needed.
The guest list can be a super hard thing to build. It’s hard to determine who to invite, if they should get a plus-one, how many guests should you invite, etc. We recommend writing a list of all the people you could invite, then going through it and organizing it into an a-list and b-list. Use this handy-dandy question list to comb through your list:
Oh gosh – budgeting the wedding is probably the hardest part of wedding planning. Not just building it, but making sure it is realistic, makes sense, is reflective of actual typical vendor pricing, and sticking to it – these are the hard parts.
A budget consultation is something that Daisy + Sun Events offers, if you’re struggling to make it make sense. We’re here for you every step of the way with 3 budget meetings – at the beginning of your process, 5 months out, and 2 months out. This is something that is also offered in both of our planning packages.
Finding vendors that are in your budget and that you mesh well with, as well as those who are actually going to provide an exemplary client experience are hard to find. We highly suggest reaching out to the vendors that you might already have booked and seeing if they have a recommended vendor list.
Additionally, the cheapest option is not always the best option. We highly recommend setting a budget range and going from there. If you have a wedding planner, they will be sure to set you up with vendors they know you will mesh well with.
Wedding planning can be isolating. Our biggest piece of advice is to not do it alone. A lot of the time, wedding planning can fall onto the shoulders of one person. It doesn’t need to be this way. Delegation is important, and while we know it’s hard, you can’t do it alone.
