Your wedding should be the most special day of your life, and there’s arguably no better place to do it in Orlando, a city with so many sites to see and so many magical experiences to uncover. Take a look at these four tips that can help you make sure your day goes off without a hitch.
1. Keep the cooks out of the kitchen
When you tell your friends and family that you’re planning a wedding in Orlando, it’s only natural that they’ll be excited and that many people will want to help. It can be tempting to accept every offer that comes your way, but remember that having too many people involved can cause serious issues if more than one person works on the same issue, or if you spend so much time delegating that you get lost in the process.
Make a list of all the things you need to get done and indicate which ones are things you’re willing to turn the reins over on. Then wait for people to offer their help and give them a task. Keep close tabs on who’s doing what and be sure to check up on their progress so you don’t end up with any last minute disasters on your hands.
2. Don’t just consider your budget – consider the budget of your guests
Of course one of the factors that will most inform the type of wedding you have will be your budget. You do need to make sure that your wedding venue, dress, caterers, etc. fit within the guidelines you’ve set, but remember that your guests have their own budgets too.
For example, when you pick the resort hotels try and select a few options. This allows guests who want to splurge to stay at a 5-star resort, while those who are on a budget can stay in their comfortable zone. Take a look at different ways guests can save money, for example by buying discounted theme park tickets, and let them know about these great money-saving ideas.
3. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box
There are so many great wedding planning resources out there that it can be tempting to follow the plan someone else has set out. Don’t fall into this trap! While it’s a great idea to take the successes of other brides into consideration, you do want to make sure that your wedding has your own stamp on it.
4. Remember to enjoy yourself!
This tip can’t be stressed enough – or you’ll just find yourself stressed! Remember that it’s your big day and you’ll only plan this wedding once. Take time to think about what will make you feel happy, relaxed, and grateful on your big day. And take some time to smell the roses along the way!
