Confusing and sometimes completely nerve-wrecking, wedding planning tends to be associated with a lot of “etiquette rules”. What happens when wedding planning rules become pure myths and only ruin a bride’s chance of having a really successful big day? What happens when myths take over reality and cloud a bride’s judgment when planning the perfect wedding?
We have gathered some of the worst myths you could believe in when you are planning your own big day – so if you want to be truly prepared, read on and find out more.
- You know what you want and you know how much it costs. Yes, you do know what you want now and you might even have a pretty clear idea of what it will cost. However, please keep in mind that wedding planning can feel like a rollercoaster full of surprises – so you should create a budget that accommodates them as well. We suggest you leave aside 5-10% of your wedding budget precisely for this purpose: to make sure you can cover for unexpected expenses and for moments you truly fall in love with something that’s slightly outside of your budget range.
- DIY florals are a good idea. Yes, they are a great idea if you have a lot of spare time at your disposal and if you are ready to spend a bit more money (because, yes, DIY florals might actually be more expensive than hiring a professional florist). And while DIY will surely add a lot of uniqueness to your entire big day, you might want to think twice before settling for the idea.
- You don’t actually need a seating chart. Yes, you do. You do need a seating chart for your own happiness and for your guests’ comfort. As long as there are tables, seats and meals served, a seating chart will help you and your guests have a much better time throughout the wedding reception.
