Dear Valued Customer,
First, we want to let you know how much we appreciate your continued support and patronage, without you our business would not be thriving like it is today!
It’s hard to believe that we’re already in the middle of May and that summer is within sight. As we are preparing for the busy wedding season, we thought we would offer a few tips of what NOT to do when planning a wedding. Planning a wedding is a difficult task and it can get overwhelming and become easy to make some of the mistakes below. So, if you’re planning a wedding, just be mindful of some of these common mistakes made by former brides.
1. Failure to Send Out Invitations in Time. It’s hard to imagine a bride-to-be who forgets to send out the wedding invitations in time. However, it does happen. In fact, just a few weeks ago a friend of mine was invited to a wedding by the bride (in person) because she had forgotten to send out the invitations in time. Many of the guests received their invitations four days before the wedding!
2. Asking Bridesmaids to Wear Ill-Fitting Gowns. I know, you probably have a vision in your head of the exact bridesmaids’ dresses you want your girls to wear. However, while the dress may look outstanding on one or two of your friends, it may also look terrible on another. If this is the case, consider having each of your bridesmaids wear different styles of gowns…just all in the same color. If you don’t, the girl wearing the unflattering dress will be the one drawing the most attention and nobody wants that.
3. Over-Decorating the Reception Hall. Most young women planning a wedding have a theme in mind for how they want the reception to be decorated. Generally this theme ties into the wedding colors chosen, the cakes and other key factors of the wedding. While you want your wedding theme to easily be detected by your guests, you don’t want to overdo it. Try to keep your decoration to a minimum so that your guests’ attention isn’t being pulled in a thousand different directions during the reception. You want them to notice the décor, but be able to focus on you and your spouse!
