We survived Blue Monday! 😉
I have a post for you today about weddings (no I’m not getting married anytime soon!). Wedding season is going to be upon us soon and it can be a very stressful time if you’re organising a wedding but it’s important to remember the bigger picture and what it represents. Anyway, hope you enjoy!
If you hear wedding bells then you’re a very lucky person. To be planning a wedding and to have been proposed to by the person that you love is a magical thing. Weddings are actually dying out more than you might realise. Weddings used to be something people would find themselves at a few times a year, but now it seems to be engagement parties.
Engagement parties are the new most popular thing because that’s all people seem to be doing, getting engaged. To get to the stage of planning a wedding and making that fabulous memory takes years, and it takes a hell of a lot of money. So, many people are put off by the thought of having a wedding.
So, if you are planning a wedding, then you’re lucky. You have the love and the funds to do so, and that means that wedding bells are definitely on the horizon for you. So, we’re going to talk you through some wedding planning tips to help those bells sound so much better!
Wedding Attire Essentials
The wedding attire is what most people are going to be thinking about. The wedding attire is a chance for people to get dolled up and wear things that they wouldn’t usually wear, just so that they can enjoy the day. But it’s not just your dress that you need to be thinking about, your bank account is going to be in charge of the dresses that your bridesmaids want to wear.
You can search by colors to see what styles and colour you’d like best for your big day. At the end of the day, the bridesmaids should be wearing what you want them to wear, but we know it doesn’t always work out that way. Try and keep it as cheap as possible as well. Some brides spend thousands on their bridesmaids for a dress they’ll probably never wear again! You could even think about renting one to save some money.
Venue meltdowns are going to come in thick and fast when things don’t go your way. A venue meltdown can be anything from them changing the numbers that you’re allowed to invite, to them changing the time of the wedding, to the catering company saying they won’t travel to the location.
All we’d recommend is that you make sure you’re planning everything far enough in advance so that you can account for all of this happening. If something is going wrong when your wedding is a year or so in advance, you can’t really complain!
Wedding Day Meltdowns
Hopefully there won’t be any meltdowns on the day, but let’s be honest, anything could happen! If something doesn’t go how it should do, it’s so easy to have a meltdown. But our best advice for the day is to make sure you’re just relax into the day. As long as you and your partner are there and you’re getting married, that’s all that matters. Chances are your guests won’t even know if anything does go wrong!

I’m really confused as to why this is popping up on your blog. You’re like the least wedding-y person I can think of!
When I saw the title I thought Kyle had proposed!! I love a wedding. I love hearing all about people’s plans and going to them. They are days filled with love and happiness, what’s not to like?!

As a wedding photographer and an organizer. I think weddings are one of the events in our life that is memorable yet in the process of organizing it might be a little hassle. But worth it! Also, I have reached the age where mostly family or friends put the little pressure on you about getting married haha. But anyway, that’s on the pipeline but not yet a focus as of now. I just love reading stuff about this. Definitely wedding bells are everywhere.
Weddings can be hectic and stressful since no matter how much you plan it, things could and would still go out of your plan, you can only do so much to make it as perfect as possible with help of course.
Want the perfect and most ecological wedding ever? Go in some rustic place, with the most good friends, maximum 6, and have a very nice small party, then go to the best honey moon! If you want a bigger wedding with all the people that you almost don’t know you will find a lot of them that will not feel so good and this will mess up your party!
I appreciate your advice about keeping my bridesmaids’ gowns as cheap as I can. Although I want to invest in their dresses as I would on my own gown, I can’t deny that you were right in saying that they would probably never wear it again. It might be better to look for shops where we can find wedding dresses for sale at an affordable price.
Thanks for sharing your important opinion. I was actually looking for an article to read. I enjoyed it very much. Thanks
