On the one hand, getting married is such an exciting moment. On the other hand, it is utterly stressful. As you cross off a million tasks from your to-do list and keep track of dozens of obligations, it may be very easy to get distracted and lose sight of what's important. But as you're going through them, keep in mind that you don't want to allow these typical wedding mishaps to ruin your honeymoon or married life. On this note, we’ll share some common mistakes that you need to keep in mind and be aware of to prevent them from happening in the preparation stage through the big day.

What To Wear To a Not-So-Close Friend's Wedding?

Buying your bridal gown before choosing the venue

Make sure you are aware of the kind of wedding you are planning and the location before making appointments at the bridal salon. Yes, you are free to dress however you choose, but if you buy a modest gown and end up reserving a high-end venue, you might wish you had gone bigger and bolder, keeping the location in mind.

10 Wedding Entrance Ideas That Will Make Your Big Day Iconic

Crash dieting before the wedding

No bride should believe that she needs to transform her body before her wedding. Instead of aggressively cutting calories or quitting entire food groups a while before your wedding date, gradually get into it if you do want to develop healthier habits. A well-balanced food plan or exercise routine might be a great plan to follow 6 months before the wedding. If you solely focus on losing weight before the wedding just to look great in wedding pictures, you’ll not only gain weight afterwards, but you might also feel depressed because of the extra weight.

Choosing a trendy lipstick shade

Choose a shade that suits you instead of the in-style looks for the red carpet. Although bare lips are very trendy, especially when worn with smoky eyes, bare lips can entirely hide your lips, especially in group shots. Think of a neutral shade with a subtle hint of berry, peach, or rose, just enough to set off your lips from your face.

Thinking About Custom-Making Your Wedding Dress? Here Are The Best Fabrics

Being close-minded about the little details

There are a few brides that had everything go according to plan on the big day. So, it is only natural for things to go wrong. The trick here is to accept them and enjoy your day. Remember that you are ultimately the host of a sizable party once the location has been chosen, the suppliers have been chosen, and the guest list has been confirmed. If your guests had a great time, then it's likely that your wedding was wonderful.

Not accounting for hidden costs

The majority of brides pile up hundreds in additional costs a few days before the wedding, from last-minute seamstress bills to cash tips for deliveries. While it makes sense that some unexpected costs would arise, take the time to compile a spreadsheet of expected expenses so you have the necessary money on hand.

The volume of the music

Your guests could be having trouble communicating with one another when you're jamming to the DJ. Before guests enter the room, run a sound check and make choices that will please everyone. The music is overly loud if those who choose not to dance can't have a conversation.

Your life revolves around wedding planning

Being engaged means that you will probably spend a lot of time arranging your wedding. But it shouldn't take up your entire time! During the wedding planning process, be aware of how you are using your time and set aside time for your partner, your friends, and your own personal needs. Keep dating your special someone during this period and enjoy the process.

Forgetting to check the weather

Even though it's unpleasant to consider, you must be ready for bad weather if you're having an outdoor wedding. Ask if the interior area will be accessible if the weather is bad (if the venue has both indoor and outdoor space). Get a tent prepared or come up with a backup plan to shift the event to a different location if you won't be able to move it indoors.

Choosing the wrong people for important roles

Many couples experienced disagreements over selecting the wedding party's members too early in the planning process. Making the appropriate choice can prevent you from having to try to exclude a bridesmaid in the future. Making the right choice for your bridesmaids, groomsmen, maid of honor, and best man are all crucial decisions you should think about thoroughly.

Finally, know that some mishaps may take place on the big day, but this shouldn’t stress you out or affect how happy you should be! This is your day. Enjoy every bit of it and have the utmost fun.
