The Best Wedding Planning Tips for 2018

Around this time of year, we’re definitely hearing about all the beautiful wedding memories while also envying the highlight reel of our friends’ honeymoons. However, we’re also hearing about all the engagement stories and aww-worthy proposals! That’s right, ladies, a beautiful wedding season just ended and we’ve headed into an even more exciting engagement season. Excuse me while I swoon over all the pretty rings and winter-themed proposal photos!   On the other hand, while it’s mostly exciting, we don’t really hear are the stressful parts of wedding planning. If you’ve ever planned a wedding, you know there are a lot of elements to consider. You have your venue, the entertainment, and of course what do you wear?!   Even on a budget, it’s imperative to prioritize. But how do you narrow down from most important to things you may be able to do without? We’re here to help!  

  1. Don’t Do It Alone
Wedding planning is a daunting task to do all by yourself, and married couples agree! In a recent survey conducted by Zola, around 20% of newlywed couples regret not hiring a wedding planner. Sure, you might think it’s only one day, so how hard could it be? Well, consider this to be the biggest party you will ever throw…do you really want to tackle that solo? Wedding planners, coordinators, and even professional bridesmaids like our team here want to help you achieve your perfect day, so take the extra help where you can!  
  1. Jazz It Up
Speaking of parties, you need entertainment! A lot of couples find that the reception can help make their wedding unforgettable. Make sure you do your research before hiring a DJ or band. They’re the ones in charge of getting the party started, and this is your chance to unwind and get on the dance floor with your friends and family.  
  1. Capture The Memory
In the same Zola study, a shocking 35% of couples wish they’d hired a videographer. During the ceremony, and even afterwards, the bride and groom are so busy that they may not have a moment to take it all in. It’s one day that goes by very quickly, so we recommend having a video to recap the speeches, the reception, and the moments that made your day truly special.
