How to Make the Most out of your DIY Wedding
Wedding planning is never a joke. It’s not something that you can accomplish in just a day and when you wake up you’ll say “I’m so ready for my wedding! No stress, No sweat!” Believe me, you’ll sweat a lot. Or even cry bucket of tears not because you don’t want to get married but because you’re too exhausted in tickling off the things from your long to-do list. With this, most bride-to-be will surely wonder: how are we going to enjoy the big day despite the exhausting months of preparation?
Well, after all the tiring months of preparing for a one-day event , you can surely make every inch of the occasion a memorable one. Trust me, your wedding will always be worth the sweat! How? Here is some advice to make the most out of your DIY wedding.
1.Create a Plan A and Plan B on your list.
One of the things that consumes the entire wedding team is when things don’t fall in the right place. Let’s say your dream venue is not available on the date of your wedding. And you can’t change the wedding date since it’s the only date when most of your guests are available. Since your dream venue which is your Plan A unavailable, what do you have in mind?
Cancelling the wedding shouldn’t be on top of the option! Move on to plan B. Find an accessible place or new venue which resembles your dream wedding venue. Or since it’s a DIY wedding, why not have the team decorate the new place in resemblance with the dream wedding venue? Make sure to always have a Plan B to avoid wasting time.
2. Accomplish your to-do list at least 2 months before the big day.
Relaxing for only a week or just days before the wedding will never be enough. I know you wouldn’t want to look like a zombie bride because of the eye-bags caused by the wedding preparation. Without enough rest, you’ll surely feel sleepy during the big day and won’t be able to enjoy things.
Best thing to do? Accomplish everything at least 2 months before your “I Do” day. If you do this, you’ll have enough time to pamper yourself and be a radiant and glowing bride on your wedding.
3. Set Priorities
Keep in mind that you have a lot of things to do.And honestly, you can’t do all of these all at once. Even though you are good at multi tasking, trying to do all those things will surely lead to disaster. It will be chaotic! And if this happens, you need to start from scratch again. Which means, a waste of time and resources.
So before you get excited in preparing everything, know your priorities.
4. Use a Planner
Keeping track of everything that you need to do will be key in this process! Often times when we get a chance we will write a note in our phone or on a sticky or send an email to ourselves. That can get messy quick! So the key here is to use one journal or one book to keep track of all of your wedding planning and DIY needs. We have this amazing journal that you can purchase here.
