It's one of the most important days of your life
- so don't forget to plan accordingly.
The word “sabotage” seems harsh. But often couples get so caught up in wedding planning, activities, anxiety, and the endless supply of “advice”, that they seem to overlook the key factors for a perfect wedding day: stay focused and don’t get overwhelmed.
Here are some important suggestions:
Be careful. Redundancy truly is an issue common to weddings. It will use up your time and keep you from the special moments that create the dream wedding.
There are a million and one bloggers telling you what you “must have” for your wedding. For example, in wedding photography there are many pre-existing photo lists. While these can offer some greats suggestions, most them will take up half of your day. If you feel the need to use one, look carefully. What is it that you actually need from said list? Redundancy is common in almost every wedding blog. So, what is important to you and what’s just "copy and paste"? Remember this is your wedding. This is your dream. You decide the important things.
There's a reason why one takes the time to seek out professionals in the wedding industry. Experience matters a lot. These hired professionals, along with your Vintage Wedding Coordinator, will be the ones to make sure your day runs smoothly. Hey brides and grooms, remember that your wedding party isn’t just there to look good – they’re there to help too!
Now this is important: Happy guests always make for a great wedding! Limiting your guests’ downtime between ceremony and reception is a very easy thing to do at Vintage Hotels. This gives the bride and groom even more breathing room and time to enjoy their day, rather than worrying about keeping their friends and family occupied. Be sure to ask your Special Events Manager about on and off-site activities, whether it's a glass of wine, a trip to the spa or off-site wine tours!
Speeches! I could go on… but I won’t. It’s that simple.
In review, this is your day. Make sure all your priorities are based around you and your significant other, enjoying one of the most important days of your life with your family and friends. Elegance and simplicity will never go out of style. Be sure to take your time, plan carefully, and from your wedding day onwards, you will be able to look back and say, “Wow! That was amazing!”
