5 Things people mess up when organising a wedding

Here is a list of common mistakes people make when it comes to organise a wedding…

1- Messing Up the Marriage License

In England , 28 days notice must be given to the Register Office before the marriage can take place. You have to get married within 12 months of giving notice. Both partners must be resident for seven days in England or Wales before notice is given. A notice must state where the marriage is to take place.

2- Going Over Budget

First step couples should take is getting the decision makers together and establishing a firm budget. Never go into details and plans before even pausing to think about the overall picture. It isn’t the funniest topic , but always necessary. Having the conversation at the beginning of planning will save a tremendous amount of stress down the line.

3- Letting Other People Pick Your Wedding Party

Your wedding party is yours, which means you’re the one narrowing it down to your closest friends and family members, regardless of gender, familial ties and many other factors. All them, should be standing next to you if you’re having a wedding party. Picking people to please a family member can also result in a sticky situation, so it’s best to choose what feels right for you. After all, it’s your wedding day.

4- Not Checking Contracts

Hidden costs can be an unwelcome surprise. Review your contract thoroughly, with a magnifying glass, and be aware of any fine print or potential additional costs for overtime, breakdown charges and any fees for lost or damaged items. Make sure to get everything in writing when you are finalising your arrangements with vendors.

5- The Guest List
Some couples over-invite and make budget sacrifices to accommodate more people. You’d be surprised how many guests that are invited to weddings are practically strangers to the couples. Save your budget for what you really want and need. One of the biggest mistake when it comes to creating a guest list is giving blind plus-ones. There is no reason to give blanket plus-ones to single guests if they already know other people at the wedding.

I hope this list will help you in some way…
