The 7 Most Common Questions Brides Ask About Wedding Planning

BBTBAdmin | February 12, 2018

Even though every bride is different and unique in their own way, they share a few common concerns. And when it comes to making their special day as perfect as possible, don’t be surprised if they eagerly share these concerns. So, if you are a wedding planner and you are still building experience, here are 7 of the most common wedding planning questions brides ask.

1. What Do Wedding Planner Duties Entail?

Not only is this a popular question, but it will probably be the first one a bride asks. And it’s a great place to start because this way the bride can make clear distinctions about her responsibilities for the wedding, and those of the wedding planner.

But to give you an idea of what a wedding planner does, they handle what you need them to handle. For instance, if you want to be in charge of choosing the venue, but you don’t want to handle the food, a wedding planner can take over. And if you want them to organize the wedding from start to finish, they can do that too.

Basically, a wedding planner does everything you need them to.

2. Should The Dress Code For Guests Be Stated On The Invitation?

Stating the dress code on the invitation is considered a thoughtful gesture. Seeing as modern weddings can be so varied in style, it makes it easier for the guests to know what to wear and expect. So, yes, make the dress code clear from the moment guests read your invitation.

3. What Does Booking The Venue Involve?

There is much more to booking a venue and just having a wedding. More specifically, there are details in the contract you want to pay attention to. For example, when can you start preparing the wedding venue and by what time does the place need to be clean?

4. Speak To Wedding Vendors Before Establishing A Date?

While there are some vendors that won’t mind negotiating before you can provide a set date, it preferred to have a date locked down and in place. One of the many reasons why you should have a date first is to compare it with the availability of the vendor. In other words, will they be available on that specific date?

5. When Is The Best Time To Send Wedding Invitations?

It is generally accepted that 6 weeks before the wedding is a good time to send out wedding invitations. And not only will it give guests enough time to make arrangements, but they will also have enough time to reply in case they won’t be able to make it.

6. Do You Provide Favors?

This is totally up to you, but considering that a wedding already costs a pretty penny, is it really necessary for favors? Plus, guests aren’t really expecting favors at a wedding, seeing as they are eating and drinking for free.

7. How Can I Negotiate Prices?

It is natural that you want to keep a keen eye on the budget, but there is a certain type of way you should negotiate in terms of wedding planning. Instead of asking the caterer for a discounted price, ask if they have a cheaper alternative. You can do the same with the flowers and other arrangements if you feel they go beyond what you are prepared to spend.

You have a better chance of getting a deal by asking for alternatives rather than simply cutting down on the price.

There are many more questions a bride will be asking, but these are seven of the most common. In other words, be prepared if you are taking on the wedding planning challenge.

BBTBAdmin | February 12, 2018

If you are busy planning your wedding then you are probably the happiest person in the world. This day has been coming for so long, and now you finally get to dress it up exactly the way you want it. Of course, putting a wedding together is not at all like enjoying the cake at the reception. There will be several challenging moments you’ll need to face, but here are seven steps to throwing the ultimate wedding everyone will remember.

1. Find A Balance

Yes, this is your big day and everything should be exactly the way you want it. But if you want to throw the ultimate wedding, it means your guests had a good time too. This is why you should try to strike a balance between what you want as well as the guests you will be inviting. Take into consideration what they like and what they will appreciate because if your guests aren’t really important, you wouldn’t be inviting them to your wedding.

2. Get The Right Venue

The venue plays a big part in terms of setting the atmosphere and ambiance for your wedding. This is also why you want to pay extra special attention to where you’ll be getting married. Plus, how convenient will it be for your guests to get there, and is the venue big enough?

3. Provide A Diverse Menu

Even though people usually go to weddings for the champagne and laughter, they are also very curious about the wedding food that will be served. In modern times, couples have begun showing more respect to the eating habits of their wedding guests. In other words, a bigger variety of food is on offer.

For those that don’t eat meat, there can be a vegan alternative. Things like this really help to create an unforgettable wedding.

4. Hire A Band

What completes the wedding? The music everyone will be dancing to later on. Sure, you can get a DJ as the night winds down. But for the first couple of numbers, you want a professional band or singer up there. It just brings more life to the party and everyone will enjoy it so much more.

5. Book The Photographers And Videographer

Naturally, you want to be able to look back on your wedding day through beautiful photos and videos. This makes booking a professional wedding photographer and videographers a crucial step if you want to throw the ultimate wedding.

In fact, schedule a few interviews early and have a backup photographer prepared. You can never be too careful with freelancers.

6. Send Out Invitations

You can’t expect anybody to enjoy your special day with you if they haven’t been officially invited. So, prioritize those invitations and give guests enough time to respond.

If it happens that a few guests can’t make it, you can save some money on the catering side or you can just find other guests to take their place. This is the beauty of RSVPs, and you should use them.

7. Enjoy It

Lastly, if nothing else, you should enjoy your wedding. Forget about everything going smoothly and perfect, because it won’t. Something is bound to go wrong, but it doesn’t need to take anything away from your moment. Instead, it should help to make your wedding day even more special.

And now that you have these seven tips for throwing the ultimate wedding, go out and make it happen. You are only limited by your imagination, which can do amazing things when you apply it properly. Go out and enjoy your day the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
