The Hassle of Wedding Planning

The Hassle of Wedding Planning

There is more to wedding planning than a beautiful bride, great food, and wonderful scenery. Planning a perfect wedding can be time consuming, stressful, and overwhelming. It will take most brides 7 to 12 months to plan their wedding. Most brides have an average of 189 guests and will spend an average of $20,000 to $25,000. Planning a wedding for 189 guests with a budget of $20,000 to $25,000 is a task in it self. However, most brides worry about other things such as exceeding their budget, forgetting crucial details, their reception not being fun, and guest’s not showing up. Mot brides choose not to hire a wedding planner which adds more stress and headache.

Furthermore, if you choose not to hire a wedding planner it is imperative that you are organized and vigilant. If not, you may become susceptible to what most brides worry about as mentioned above. It is also wise to have your mother help you plan the wedding.

The first step a bride should take is to decide what month she wants her wedding. August is the top month for having a wedding because it hardly rains and fall leaves give nice scenery. It does not matter which month you choose just make sure to plan 7 to 12 months ahead.
