Wedding planning mistakes

- Brides Schedule Activities After The Cake Is Cut

Historically, the tradition was that wedding guests stay at reception as long as the wedded couple did. Typically they would leave at a certain point with a rice or birdseed send-off for good luck. Guests that had to leave early would never leave before the cake was cut as it was seen as bad luck to not have a slice of happiness.

-Not having a Plan in Case of Rain

Wedding planning problems arise when the weather takes a turn for the worst. You should always have a backup plan in case of rain. Even if the forecast does not call for rain, you should have a plan just in case. Mother Nature is always changing and you don’t want a freak storm to ruin your special day.

- Goofing on the Marriage License

A common wedding problem is making a mistake on the marriage license. Most mistakes won’t matter such as if you are not sure where your parents were born. However, forgetting to get a marriage license is the biggest mistake to avoid.

-You Don't Put Yourself First

You must take time to think about the type of celebration you want. Do you envision a black-tie evening affair or a more casual daytime party? What is most important to you? Are you a foodie, or is music your thing? List your priorities. This kind of pre-planning will make both selecting a venue and setting a budget much easier.

- Order Your Dress Too Late

You want your dress to fit perfectly so you should make sure that you order it in time for alterations to be made.

- Sending Save the Date Cards too early

If you send your save the date cards too early and change your wedding date, you may inconvenience guests. A bride planning her wedding should consider waiting, but not too late.
