The tendency to have things in their perfect places or worry about the slightest detail is not uncommon when you are planning your wedding. It’s your big day, and we understand that you don’t want to miss out anything but there are certain things you shouldn’t fuss about all at.
Below are five things that really shouldn’t overwhelm you as you plan for your special day:
1. Your invitation: Recently, I got a nice wedding invitation card from my colleague at work. The invite was designed with the Game of Thrones theme, and you bet it was cute. So, even after attending the wedding party, I kept the invite for about a week or two before I eventually trashed it. The fact is, no matter how expensive your invites cost, it would most likely end up in the trash after a week or two. Therefore, keep in mind that the essence of your wedding invitation is to pass across useful information regarding the date, time, place and theme of your wedding. Try to keep it simple and as cost effective as possible due. As a matter of fact, you can save more by opting for an e-invite or making a video invite with an ad-free app like Vimeo and send via WhatsApp or your social media platforms.
2. The perfect wedding date: When considering a date for your wedding, you would probably want to choose one that allows most (if not all) of your close friends and family member to attend the event. However, even if your wedding were to occur on a public holiday not everyone you invite would be able to make it. So, in order not to get caught up in the web of perfectionism, here are two things to keep in mind: the season of the year (especially if you are planning an outdoor wedding party or trying to save cost on venues and vendors) and customary/religious requirements for your wedding. In case you are up for some creative wedding dates, dash to the post on weekday wedding.
3. Height of your wedding cake: Except you are a cake baker trying to showcase or subtly market your product to your wedding guests and every other person that sees your cake cutting pictures on social media, then you really shouldn’t tear out your hair over this aspect. Your wedding cake essentially symbolize fertility in your marriage, and it is meant to be shared with love. So, whether it is a one, two or five tier cake, just make sure it looks and taste nice.
4. Non-responsive RSVP Guests: Instead of fussing over why certain guests on your RSVP lists haven’t responded to your invite, simply pick up your phone or tablet and call them to confirm their availability. You would be amazed how productive this it over the alternative of fussing around.
