Five Wedding Mishaps You Need to Avoid

Her Wedding PlannerTrue, even the best weddings have a down side. However, there are wedding blunders that could ruin your ‘day of union’ in Niagara. Here are 5 of them:


1. DIYs. Do-it-yourselfs are a good way to get things done at less costs. But carrying too many tasks can get you all burdened up unnecessarily. Besides, the biggest job you have is to walk down the aisle and say your “I do’s”.

Solution: You don’t have to be wonder woman. Tap into the power of delegation. When you free yourself, you can focus on the more important things.


2. Impulse buys. Decide ahead how much is your spend. Or else that wedding dress online can cost you a fortune without you really knowing if it really fits.


3. Being skimpy on food. If you decide to serve lunch or dinner, make sure you don’t end up portioning food. Chances are people will start grumbling when they end up on an empty stomach. Not a good start if these things happen to your future mother-in-law. Right?


4. Doing a cash bar.  Well, this one sounds a good idea. Since you’ve paid for the food, you guests might as well foot the bill for drinks. No problem.  Wait until a week or two later and negative reviews start reaching your ears. You could limit the hours of the bar to limit the tab or schedule the reception in the afternoon. Having your guests pay for the drinks can a wedding etiquette embarrassment. Minus point for newlyweds.


5. Procrastination. There is a danger of putting things-to-do at the last minute or even the day before. It’s easy to fall into this trap. Getting those decors can be done a day or two for instance. No sweat.  But something always come up on the big day even for well-planned weddings. So unless you plan to get a ‘heart attack’ on the day you walk down the aisle, doing things ahead of time is the way to go.
