Your wedding day should be the happiest day of your life, but often the days leading up to it are so stressful that it is hard to truly enjoy the moment. Usually, planning a wedding can heighten emotions, increase financial worries, and throw your schedule into overdrive, but it doesn’t have to be that way! If you want to take the stress out of planning a wedding, follow these tips to make both the planning and the day of more enjoyable.
1. Simplify: Find out what is truly important to you and focus on that. Are unforgettable flowers and a gorgeous dress your priority? What about unique food and awesome dance music? Whatever your priorities are, put the majority of your budget and time into planning those and let everything else fall into place. You don’t have to do everything; choose a few things to really focus on and your day will be a hit. One great way to simplify is having your ceremony and reception at the same place. Not only does it save the guests travel time, but it also makes it easy to make it a beautifully cohesive event. If you are looking for outdoor (or indoor- we host both!) wedding venues in Minnesota just outside the Twin Cities area, Green Acres Event Center is a great place to have both the ceremony and reception because it has two gorgeous levels and a fantastic outdoor area.
2. Budget: It’s easy to overspend if you don’t have a good idea of what your budget is. Choose a reasonable budget and allot each wedding item an amount of money. A budget will make it easy to be flexible, move money around, and not overspend. This will take the financial worry out of your wedding planning and help make your day a huge success.
3. Focus on Your Relationship: Since wedding planning can be stressful, it’s important to take a time out now and then to focus on the whole reason you are getting married in the first place; your love for your significant other. So take a hike, get a couples massage, and get a quick bite to eat without talking about the wedding. Focusing on your relationship will help you to remember what’s really important and keep your morale high.
4. Choose High-Quality Vendors: Selecting experienced and understanding vendors can make a world of difference. By finding wedding venues with experienced venue managers and great vendor relationships, you take out all the guesswork. Great vendors have thrown many wedding events and can help you make your dreams a reality because they know where to look for all the best wedding essentials and can give suggestions that will really make your event stand out.
