Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

Wedding Planning. Sometimes it gets a bad rep. The term “Bridezilla” comes to mind haha. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Wedding planning is essentially just a series of decisions that have to be made… when you look at the bare bones of it. So since this is a topic that comes up often with my clients, I thought I’d break down my best tips for making decisions for you guys to take that element out of the stress of wedding planning!

Tip #1: Make a Priority List

Before you do ANYTHING… sit down with your partner and come up with your top 3 priorities for your wedding day. Now, these can be literally anything. Anything that is important to you guys. There are some obvious ones that literally apply to everyone. “We want to have fun.” “We want everyone to have a good time.” Sure, sure. OBVIOUSLY. So those are a given and shouldn’t be on the list. The idea is – we’re creating your mission statement for your wedding with these priorities. So they should be clear, concise, and specific to you guys. A great example could be your Photography. You have a specific look and feel of photography style and it’s important to you that your photographer have ample time to get EVERYTHING. Great. That’s on the list. Now fast forward to when your photographer asks if you want to do a first look or not. “oh man.. we don’t know. there are so many pros for each options… what do we do… ??” Stop stressing. Let’s go to your priority list. Photography was #1 on that list. Doing a first look allows for more time to take portraits, details, family photos. “Yes. we’re doing a first look.” 

Done and done! Look at you?! You just crossed an item off your list and it took 5 min! Crisis averted. Now you have time to go have brunch with bottomless mimosas with your girlfriends. Your welcome.

Once you have your 3 priorities. Use that to help you navigate the tough decisions throughout planning. I promise it will help simplify things, and will make you feel confident about the choices you are making.
