Staying Calm While Arranging Your Wedding

Congratulations on finding your soul mate! Your dream wedding Pinterest board is finally coming in handy. There are many details involved in preparing for your big day, from creating the guest list to choosing the bridesmaid dresses. From the wedding planning professionals at Long Island’s leading wedding venue, The Royalton Properties, here are some tips to remain calm during a hectic, exciting time in your life!

Start Planning Early

If possible, try to plan your wedding a year in advance. This will allow you to prepare properly without feeling stressed to accomplish everything at once. Create a timeline to ensure you are meeting all the tasks promptly. Nothing is worse than rushing to find a wedding photographer at the last minute and relying on your cousin’s iPhone photography skills.

Create a Budget

Setting a budget early on in the planning process will help you from making unnecessary purchases. When allocating money for each category, such as a wedding dress, give yourself an additional 15% cushion to cover any extra fees or surprises. Determining your wedding expenses is essential, especially if you want an extravagant honeymoon or are hoping to buy a home as a newlywed couple.

Expect the Unexpected

The purpose of your wedding is to celebrate you and your significant other starting the next chapter with the people you love. Though we want all of your dreams to come true, some things may happen that are out of your control, such as receiving the wrong shade of blue napkins or unforeseeable bad weather. Don’t strive for perfection; instead, focus on enjoying your big day!
