Wedding planning is a stressful time for most brides. Check out this list of tips from a real bride and see how to stay sane while you plan your big day!
Planning a wedding and feeling overwhelmed? As Rebecca’s big day is inching closer, she has learned some wedding planning tips that the experts won’t tell you. She knows how to play the game and provided us with some hysterically harsh wedding planning tips we promise you haven’t heard before. Check them all out in her guest post below.
Watch the tips be put to work, and even see the bride create some looks of her own in her video below! As a guy in the office said “they do some weird toilet paper stuff”.
This fun WeddingMix video was recorded with the help of their shower guests. The guests had a blast capturing these moments with their own cameras along with the WeddingMix app and rental cameras. Read what real brides had to say on Wedding Wire:
This is a great option if you can’t afford a videographer which can be sooooo expensive! If you can get your guests to use the app OR at least shoot videos in landscape mode then you will be so happy with the results. It’s easy to upload the videos and they did an amazing job at putting it all together for us. We loved it!” – Heather
Real advice from the bride!
Stretch your money, it won’t tear:
Don’t underestimate the value of the dollar stores
Don’t bother with favors
If you’re a true DIYer, invest in the Cricut!
I spent $199 on my Cricut and it’s paid for itself multiple times over (plus I’ll get to keep it after the wedding for future DIY projects). I was able to send out very expensive-looking invitations, which looked that way thanks to an intricate belly band that would have cost hundreds to laser cut, yet only cost me my time, patience, and a few dollars worth of cardstock.
With the leftover cardstock we were able to make additional items—like door hangers for the hotel welcome bags, napkin rings for the reception, cake take-home boxes, and professional-looking gift tags for the bridesmaid gifts—which will really bring the wedding to life. The Cricut even “calligraphied” our envelopes, a service which normally costs about $4 per envelope!
Don’t bother with deserts ,no really:
Don’t bother with any dessert besides the wedding cake
Eat, drink, and register
Don’t try to be Wonder woman
If you’re not Type A, get professional help
Get your family involved without looking like a bridezilla:
Give your parents one last shot at taking care of your business
Let the moms meddle in your business
Let your mother in law enjoy her new daughter
Let other people sweat the small stuff
Like her style? Here’s how you can do it!
