Planning a wedding can be a stressful time in anyone’s life. With so much to consider, there leaves the fear that something vital could be overlooked. While veils, tablecloths, and choice of wine can be argued over, it’s important to remember the foundational features of a wedding that are necessary for a successful event. Keep these wedding planning tips in mind to make your special day a memorable one.

Don’t Wait To Book Your Venue
One of the best wedding planning tips to follow is to never wait on booking your venue. Especially as wedding venues begin to open their doors again, there’s going to be a high demand for event spaces. Make sure to book your venue sooner as opposed to later to get your preferred date and time. Book your event very soon after the engagement, don’t let it slip through your fingers.

Keep Your Guests In The Loop
Many engagements can last a year or more, so it’s important to keep your guests engaged while you plan your wedding. Even if the wedding is a year or two away, sending out save the date cards or fridge magnets is a great way to remind your guests to keep that day open before sending the official invitations.

Be Flexible
With lockdowns still happening across Canada, a lot of us have gotten used to rolling with the punches. This is no different when it comes to planning a wedding. Being patient and flexible with venues, guests, accommodations, and food will keep you on track and lower your stress levels as you plan your special day. Out of all of our wedding planning tips, this one is the most likely to reduce stress and prevent mishaps on the day of your wedding.

Hire A Professional Planner
A professional wedding planner will ensure that your event goes off without a hitch. Consider investing in an event planner, or perhaps looking into venues with wedding packages to help relieve your stress and keep you and your wedding party organized. As most people only plan one wedding in their lifetime, it’s beneficial to hire an expert to help.

Review Contracts
Before signing for food, labour, entertainment, venue, and any other accommodations, make sure to thoroughly read the contract. Although you may be anxious to secure the service, it’s important that you and the service you’re hiring are on the same page and there aren’t any hidden fees or issues.
