8 Wedding Urban legendsthat you don’t have to follow
YOU HAVE TO WEAR A WHITE DRESS
If you have never imagined yourself in a pure white dress or a ball gown dress and a long veil don’t overthink it. Use flowers on your hair or feathers (we die for flower bridal crowns) and throw away the classic veil. You want color? No problem! There are so many designers that have added color to their dresses. Choose dusty pink, blush pink, beige or even yellow. You are not satisfied by those options? Then choose a deep red wedding dress and we’ll bow to your awesomeness!
YOUR FRIENDS ARE AS GOOD AS THE WEDDING PROFESSIONALS
Your best friend takes the most amazing pictures with her phone and she recently bought a really good camera. She has also taken the pictures of your friends’ wedding. And she will not charge you as a professional wedding photographer. Great opportunity. If you don’t care for the result. We have told you before and will tell you once more. Your wedding day is going to be one of the most amazing days of your life and you do want everything to be perfect and never forget them. Well, your i-am-ding-you-a-favor-I-want-to-make-some-extra-money-wannabe-professional friend, will never give you the result you dream of. And of course, this happens for all your “wedding-professional-friends” like wedding planning, flowers, decoration, music etc.
SINCE YOU’VE BEEN AT THEIR WEDDING YOU HAVE TO INVITE THEM TOO
Do not feel obliged to invite someone at your wedding just because they have invited you to theirs as well. It is your day! Invite the people you want and the people you need close to you that day. If someone takes it for guaranteed that they’ll be invited, make sure to inform them on time that due to low budget your wedding guest list is limited as well!
WEDDING PLANNERS ARE FAR TOO EXPENSIVE
Here how it goes… Not only the wedding planner will help you to have everything under control (and trust us there are so many all those things you have to take care of) and will give you lots of ideas and inspiration but above all, the wedding planner will keep within your wedding budget and spare you money that you would have spent by your own. Wedding planners usually have a great team of people and professionals, like florists and graphic designers so they can get better agreements for you that you would have gotten your own. Don’t think not getting a wedding planner! If you want your wedding to be exactly the way you want, then this is the solution for you!
DIY WILL SAVE YOU LOTS OF MONEY
Attention! DIY method, is not always the cheapest solution. Unless you have unlimited access to products you’ll need in order to make your own centerpieces, your guest favors and your wedding invitations, it is not happening. The cost of doing all that by your own sometimes might be bigger than letting a professional take over. And don’t forget the time you’ll spent to create 100-200 guest favors. So, you might want to think it twice!
YOUR WEDDING WILL COST YOU A FORTUNE
Yes, it is true that you will spend a lot on your wedding. But there are ways to save money so your wedding won’t cost as much as your house (or more). It is wise not to start your common life with debts! Have some priorities. If you dream a designer’s wedding dress, or a special venue then try to reduce other expenses so you won’t get off of your budget. For example, send e-invites to your friends instead of wedding invitations. Decide where you are willing to spend and where not!
FOOD AT WEDDINGS IS ALWAYS TASTELESS
The fact that it happened to be guest at some wedding that the food wasn’t that good it doesn’t mean that this I the rule for wedding caterings. The secret is to first you taste the wedding menu before you decide to serve it to your guests. If you don’t like something, then ask if you can change it or if you can have different sides that the ordinary.
GOOD WEDDING DRESSES ARE WAY EXPENSIVE
You definitely wonder why some wedding dresses cost like 700€ and others 5000€. Everything is about quality, fabrics, design and of course the designer. Of course, it is not impossible to find a dress within your budget. In a good bridal salon, they will help you find a dress that will fit your body type perfectly and you’ll stay within your budget. Think of renting your wedding dress and not buying it in order of saving some money!
