15 Bridal Errors you should avoid
There will always be an error or imperfection to an event. And we are here, lovebug to warn you of those so that you can happily go on about your special day. We are listing the top 15 bridal errors we hope you won’t be making!
1. DO NOT GO OVER BUDGET!
Lovebug, the most common error couples make is that they proceed with planning even though they have not set their budget yet. Pool some resources together and stick with it!
2. DO NOT PICK YOUR WEDDING GOWN BEFORE THE VENUE!
Some brides get overly excited about their wedding dress. Some might even have their dream wedding gowns sketched long before they met Mr. Right. It’s not wrong to pursue this dream wedding gown. We are only asking to keep your options open before you secure your wedding venue. You might not need that long trail after all!

3. DO NOT OVERLOAD YOUR GUESTLIST!
Some couples sacrifice their budget by inviting family friends or other distant family relatives they were barely close to. Not to mention the blind plus ones couples easily give away. If friends know people at the wedding, there’s no need to add that extra seating. Chances are you’ll have a more relaxed set-up and less cramped situation in the venue.
Better yet, why not consider a livestreamed wedding? Then, you can freely invite all the people who wants to see your wedding without worrying about your budget or your safety!

4. DO NOT SEND OUT YOUR INVITATIONS ON THE BUSIEST TIME OF THE YEAR!
Sending out your invitations or save-the-dates when it’s Christmas time might compromise it. Your invitees might get a lot of mail for invitations during the busiest time of the year and may not pay attention to yours. Plan sending these out with that factor in mind.
5. DO NOT FORGET TO HAVE A PLAN B!
We have seen it before, lovebug. Couples who fail to plan, plan to fail. That includes not having a plan B for venues, for caterings, for florists, etc.
6. DO NOT MICROMANAGE YOUR VENDOR!
(And don’t forget to feed them too!) They heard you out the first time around. Now, let them do their jobs effectively. Your vendors are professionals. You must trust that they will bring out their most creative side in creating your unique wedding memory!
7. DO NOT ENGAGE IN A CONTRACT WITHOUT READING!
Booking your caterer is a tedious task in itself. The work does not end there! Don’t forget to read the contract! Not reading the contract might surprise you, in a bad way! You may incur additional costs on waiters and servers, an upgrade to customised drinks and whatnots. Reading the contract may empower you with knowledge on what works best and where. This way, you will know the inclusions of the package and may even stretch your budget to incorporate something special like a chocolate or cheese fondue fountain!
8. DO NOT FORGET YOUR GUESTS!
Of course, love bug, it’s your special day! But don’t hog all the experience to yourself by making your guests eat your own special vegan diet. They’re your guests after all! And that means partaking in a shared, fun experience for all!
9. DO NOT PLAN A LONG CEREMONY!
As a follow up to commandment # 8, do not bore your guests by planning a long ceremony of vows and toasts! 5 minutes for a toast, tops! And you and your guests are free to let loose on the dance floor!
10. DO NOT GET DIY HAPPY!
We are in it for the personal touch but DIY-ing takes some of your precious time that should be spent relaxing. DIY-ing may also overcrowd your venue. Hey, we love a good K.I.S.S, right? Keep It Simple, Sister!
11. DO NOT FORGET TO GIVE INFORMATION!
These are niceties you should extend to your guests! The information must include maps to the venue, bathrooms and parking, nearby restaurants for out-of-towners and local tourist spots if you have a destination wedding!
12. DO NOT FORGET TO ACCOUNT FOR HIDDEN COSTS!
Have some extra cash with you, lovebug! It is a buffer for the unexpected costs like extending a tip to your make-up artist or photographer!
13. DO NOT SKIP THE NECESSARY DOCUMENTATION!
A lot of couples prefer to save up by not hiring a videographer and ending up regretful because they want to relish the moments of the day! Do yourself a favor, lovebug. Make documentation a priority! Your future self will thank you for it!

14. DO NOT FORGET TO CHERISH THE PRESENCE OF YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
Couples tend to get nerve-wracked on their wedding day! Loevbug, make sure to talk to your close friends and family on this day. You’ll get all the assurance you need.
15. DO NOT FORGET TO ENJOY THE DAY!
Finally, don’t sweat the small stuff. You’re marrying the love of your life after all!
