Your wedding day might be the only time you're allowed to overthink everything, in good measure, and change things until they fit your day!
Check out these great tips below on what not to do so you don't end up sabotaging your own wedding.
Don't organize your wedding properly
Ok, you don't want anyone calling you a bridezilla, but it is so important to stay organized when you are planning your wedding. It's easy for the budget to get away from you and you don't want to have to do everything at the last minute or forget something that is vital to the day.
The best way to stop yourself from becoming disorganized is to have use a wedding planner. You can buy specially made diaries or download an app for your phone.
Whichever method works best for you make sure you keep track of your budgets, tasks, and vendor details, so it is all in one place and you can reach it easily.
Don't pick decor that reflects your style
There are so many people to please when you are organizing a wedding, but make sure that the thing that your pick for the decor reflects your taste as a couple.
If you are relaxed and rustic, then go for a barn wedding and get your guest to sit on hay bales. If you are more modern and stylish, then go for wedding chairs hire from Event Artillery, or somewhere local. Companies like this produce on trend and stylish and original options to make your wedding stand out from the crowd.
You don't want to forever regret your decor decisions because you didn't stand up for what you wanted, or because you were following a current 'trend.'
Don't plan your seating
Have you seen these cute signs that say “We are all family here, so pick a seat, not a side?” Adorable and idealistic as this is, when it comes to the meal, you should always go with a formal seating plan.
Don't sabotage your day by putting siblings or ex-partners together that can't stand each other. It's so easy for tempers to flare when people are expected to mix and get on all day, and the drinks...they can add to the unwanted drama. Do yourself a favour and seat possible loose cannons far apart so they can be watered down by the presence of the rest of your guests.
Don't leave all your music choices to your DJ
There is nothing worse than a wedding disco where nobody gets up to dance. Nothing.
It can actually sabotage the day and make the atmosphere go flat and that, my friends, is why it's crucial that you don't leave your wedding music selections up to the DJ that you employ, it's much better to ask the guest to pick a few songs each. You can do this if you have email invitation and a wedding website like this one. Then you know your guests are bound to get up and dance to their favourite jam and enjoy the night. Once they're up and grooving they're more likely to stay on the dance floor too!
