Making mistakes is an inevitable process/situation, especially while planning your own nuptials. There are bound to be a few ups and downs, but these are some of the major mistakes which most brides make and how you can avoid making the same.

Lack of planning

You might have a hundred ideas in your head about how to want your nuptials to turn out. But if you don’t think it through and put your ideas into action you are bound to be stressed later on. Start researching and asking around for the most reliable and reputed florists, cake decorator, wedding photographer, caterer, dress designer and beautician around town and choose the one that suits your style and budget best. Create a plan which includes the entire nuptials planning process so that you don’t end up forgetting the important aspects of your nuptials.

Choose the right bridesmaids

Several brides experience this dilemma where they are compelled to choose some of their friends as bridesmaids even though they secretly don’t want them to be a part of the squad. Don’t make the mistake of asking your snobby friend who has a habit of passing mean comments without a second thought. It’s your big day and you don’t need that kind of negativity surrounding you at all times. Break it to her politely that she will not be a part of the bridesmaids and ensure that you don’t hurt her feelings while doing so.


It is obvious that you would be quite excited as your nuptials approaches, especially if you have been dreaming about this day since childhood. However, don’t make the mistake of spending excessive amounts of money just because you want everything to look perfect. This is an important day of your life, but that does not require you to set a massive budget and acquire a debt that you will be re-paying for the first few years of your marriage. If the wedding photo booth or extravagant 5 tier cake does not fit your budget, don’t go for it! Look for cheaper alternatives that are similar to the ideas that you wanted.

Having too much on your plate

Although trying to cut the costs is a good idea, this does not mean you have to stress yourself out by taking on all the responsibilities. If hiring a nuptials planner appears to be too costly, get a few friends and family members on board and assign different tasks for each one to handle. Don’t try doing DIY décors all by yourself in an attempt to save a few pennies. Instead you could try looking for vendors that are good at their job but not quite popular yet. This way you get your money’s worth and the perfect nuptials that you always dreamed of.

Regardless of how much you try to make everything perfect, there are bound to be a few glitches here and there. So stop stressing and remember to enjoy your nuptials so that you only have good memories to cherish!
