Wedding Planner Tips and Tricks to Make Your Wedding Planning Easier

The RSVP Nightmare

It’s unknown why it’s so difficult to get people to RSVP to your wedding. To make it easier for guests to reply, allow them to RSVP online or via email. You can always use a mass email service or something like GMass to contact your guests from your Chrome browser and gmail account. This is easier if you have a wedding website that allows guests to RSVP. Also, by sending out your wedding invitations on a Wednesday, it almost guarantees that they will receive them during the weekend while they have more free time and can respond immediately. While you’re at it, you may consider sending extra invitations and wedding cards to companies or celebrities for free stuff..

Discuss the Rules with Your Venue

While many venues have strict policies in place for various things, a lot of couples don’t actually discuss all of the rules with the venue. There are several things you need to discuss, including whether or not alcohol will be permitted, what the capacity of the venue is, whether outside refreshments can be brought it, and even whether or not you can light candles. By discussing all of the rules before booking the venue, you can be sure you’re clear on the policies and guidelines.

Use Greenery to Stretch the Flowers

The flowers can be one of the biggest expenses in any wedding. To save money, use greenery to fill out your bouquets, centerpieces and displays. It looks beautiful in arrangements and is cheaper than actual blossoms. It’s also a good idea to use flowers that are in season, as they will not need to be imported and are generally less expensive than those blooms that aren’t in season.

Rely on Your Friends and Families

While it can be easy to fall into a routine of doing everything, especially when you’re trying to make sure everything is perfect, it can easily lead to you becoming overwhelmed and frustrated. Rely on your loved ones for help; your bridesmaids, mother, mother-in-law…these people can all be invaluable during the wedding planning process. Don’t forget to delegate and ask for help!
