Concerns Brides Have About Their Big Day (and What to do About Them)
The big day requires big planning, and if you are experiencing that combination of anxiety and excitement in the run-up to your big day, you're not alone. But for those people who are just starting their wedding planning, you may want to bear in mind some of the most common concerns brides have. Here are a few and what you can do about them.
Coordinating All of the Vendors
This is very overwhelming when you're not used to planning events on a large scale. Many expert wedding planning advisors can always deal with the logistics here. On the other hand, you could get someone you trust to handle all of the coordination concerns, especially on the big day itself. A lot of things can fall through in the planning stage, so if you can get some extra help, it's definitely worth doing so!
If you are planning an outdoor wedding, unpredictable weather can certainly throw problems into the mix. You should always have a backup plan in case there's any inclement weather. Renting tents or a backup indoor space will certainly take the stress out. There's also nothing worse than having a wedding dress weigh you down because it is soaking. If you fear any wardrobe mishaps, you can get an extra umbrella to shield you from the rain but also have a little bridal emergency kit with stain remover, makeup, and safety pins for good measure.
Money is always one of the biggest concerns, and you need to make sure that you prioritize your spending on things that matter most. We can spend a lot of time worrying about the little things and how much they cost, but if you are operating within a strict budget, you cannot go over it. It is a big day, but it is just a day, so you need to ensure that you are not paying for it years or even a decade after the big day itself!
You can hire an amazing photographer, but they may not get the event. It's about making sure that you hire someone you can trust, and if you feel like you want to capture certain types of events, there is absolutely nothing wrong with working with them to ask them for specific types of shots. You may want to have pictures of your mother because there are very few of them, and a little list of those essentials will make all the difference.
Worries About the Dance
Lots of brides worry about the first dance, especially if they’ve been working hard to lose some weight to fit into that dress. If in doubt, make sure you schedule a bit of time to practice. Lots of people avoid practicing because it makes them feel more insecure. The most important lesson in learning how to dance is about choosing the right dance that suits your abilities, and a dance instructor can always show you some simple pointers that will give you far more confidence in yourself.
There are many concerns brides have about their big day, but you have to remember it is your big day, so don't worry too much!
