While your wedding day is one of the happiest days of your life, the planning leading up to it can be a total nightmare. And when the stress hits full force and you’re left with hundreds of questions, the last thing you want is to read tips that tell you to “stay calm.”
As a supplier of wedding supplies in West Chester, Ohio, we at One Stop Rental understand that you want real wedding planning help and realistic solutions. Here are five tips to help you get ready for the big day.
Get Some Help
Remember, you are NOT a superhero. And that’s OK, no one is! While planning a wedding can be fun, it’s a huge responsibility that’s not reasonable for one person to take on (even wedding planners have assistants). Enlist the help of your friends and family, because planning a wedding can take over 250 hours of work!
Settle on a Budget Early
While having a lavish wedding with a five course meal, giant floral centerpieces and top-notch entertainment is all well and good, it’s not realistic for the average couple. From the very start, sit down with your families and figure out exactly what you can afford. Do this before you make your wish list, as it will help you stay a little more reasonable with your wishes. A great way to save money is by renting many of your wedding accessories from One Stop Rental, rather than purchasing them only to use for one day.
Be Willing to Compromise
There are going to be disagreements in wedding planning, it’s a fact of life. With so many decisions to make, there’s no way you and your partner are going to agree on everything. Learn how to find the middle ground! Think of the wedding planning process as one of the first big tests you must endure as you begin your life together.
Don’t Waste Time Worrying
Where does worrying really get you in life? Don’t sweat the small stuff when you plan your wedding. Looks like there’s going to be rain on the day of your outdoor wedding? Rent a tent! It might not be perfect, but a little water never hurt anyone. Flowers aren’t the right shade of pink? It’ll be alright! While small issues might bug you, just remember that your guests will never know the difference.
Stop to Smell the Roses
Amongst all the craziness of wedding planning, there will still be happy moments, so really make an effort to appreciate them. Keeping a positive attitude and appreciating the good things can help you stay much more relaxed and at peace through the entire process.
