Wedding Planning Mistakes You Should Avoid

Posted by on December 1, 2014

paul 1Planning a wedding isn’t simple at all, but it’s something brides (and few grooms) really enjoy. Well, at least some parts of it. Although every couple wants their wedding to be unique, different, amazing and memorable, once they set their budget and date, it becomes clear it’s just impossible to make everything perfect. And, no matter how hard you try, there will always be at least once person not satisfied with your wedding party. However, it doesn’t mean you should give up on planning a dream wedding and we’re here to help you make the best of it, at least when it comes to wedding photography and videography. We have been talking to experts from and we would like to share a few tips with you.

paul 2Once you realize you don’t have enough money to cover all the expenses of a picture-perfect wedding, you will start cutting costs. My friend used to think she would hire an amateur photographer, a cousin with a decent camera, for her wedding. Once she started planning a wedding, she changed her mind and right now she’s looking for the best local photographers available on her wedding day. Has she lost her mind? No, she just wants her wedding photo album to look awesome! I completely agree with her, of course. It’s not that a beginning or student photographer cannot do good job, hire them for pre-wedding photo album and you might be nicely surprised. However, wedding schedule is hectic, you need to hire someone experienced, skilled, organized and used to working under pressure.

paul 3So, don’t book a photographer based on a price only. This goes for too expensive photographers, as well. Although you might feel like a princess, you still don’t need a celebrity wedding photographer. You should pay decent rates for good photographers, but not to save all your wedding budget on your wedding photos.

Another mistake brides usually do is not letting vendors do their jobs. If you have carefully chosen caterer, entertainment, DJ and photographer, let them all do what they’re paid for. Trust me, they’ll take care of their departments better than you would. Well, that’s why you hired amazing wedding professionals, isn’t it?

paul 4When it comes to wedding photography, experts from suggest you to schedule time for photography/videography. And, they’re not talking about hotel lobby/reception place photos only. Talk to your photographers about several picturesque locations you like. If enough photography time is built into busy schedule, your wedding photographers and videographers will handle all of the logistics necessary to meet your requirements and desires.

paul 5Don’t forget to feed your vendors. Yes, it sounds funny, but couples somehow forget their planners, musicians and other vendors are living beings who need some rest and food. Don’t forget to include them when planning wedding meals.

Finally, you need to relax and have fun while planning your big day, but do it wisely and carefully. A well planned event will enable you to enjoy it and to be awesome on your wedding day.
