What Failures Could Lead To A Wedding Disaster?

Until it is your turn to walk down the aisle, you probably do not have an idea of the many decisions and moving pieces that come with planning a wedding. Even with the help of a planner, you still have to be wary of any problem that could derail your vision of a perfect wedding. To help you stay ahead of potential problems, here are some mistakes you and your intended should avoid.  

Failing to Consider the Comfort of Friends and Family

While planning your wedding, it can be easy to overlook the comfort of your friends and family. During the planning, you not only have to consider their comfort levels, but their budgets. If you place too much financial responsibility on your guests for their travel and accommodations, you might find that some of them are unable to travel to the event.  

Fortunately, there are things you can do to make the experience less burdensome to them. For instance, when booking hotel rooms for your guests, ask for a group discount. Some hotels offer special discounts for wedding parties and even provide additional amenities, such as breakfast and fun activities.  Contact a venue, like Georgios Banquets, Quality Inn & Suites Conference Centre, for more help.

To get a better understanding of how you can help keep the experience fun for all, talk to some of your guests to get an idea of their budget limitations and necessary comforts.  

Failing to Factor in All Possible Charges

During your discussions with vendors about the services they will offer at your wedding, it is easy to start thinking of each expense in terms of price per head. However, doing this could mean you will be caught by surprise by your final bills for your wedding and reception.  

Although your venue might be offering a package that has a set price per head, there are other services that are not included in those packages. For instance, the photographer and floral arrangements likely are not included in the quoted price. You will need to arrange for those services yourself.  

When considering your fees, pay attention to the total fixed price instead of the price per head. It will provide you with a more realistic picture of what you will have to pay for your wedding.  

Your planner can help you identify other possible mistakes that could send your wedding plans off-track. Remember to keep him or her involved in the decision making and ask questions when you are unclear on the plans.
