Wedding planning is a fun process but it can also be a daunting one. There are many ways that you can adopt the KISS (KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID) principle within your wedding planning.
I have created a list to help you focus on what’s important on the day.
Create a wedding website
A website is highly visible, has all the details of your day and is a handy reference tool for everyone to refer to, making the planning process easy and transparent.
Spend time selecting vendors that you know, love and trust
This includes those you have seen in action or those recommended by others you know, love and trust; meeting with them before making your selection will help you to get a sense of their style and whether it matches the style you're after.
Use Pinterest boards
These help to nail down and identify key items and aspects of your day; from wedding vows to wedding songs, to something old, something new, something borrowed something blue. Anything and everything related to weddings can be found on pinterest.
Reflect on what is important, prioritising your lists, staying true to your desires, wants and needs and along with this don’t get caught up in perfection. Don’t get caught up and distracted in the white noise of Instagram fun and entertaining memes etc.
Work out what jobs there are and who can do them. Allow others to be responsible for planning aspects of your day
Share something personal with your guests
Within your day you want to, wherever you can, include personal touches unique to you as a couple and tell your story up until this moment in time.
When you go through the planning process always keep the big picture in mind, don’t sweat the small stuff and use the KISS principle always. Remember your wedding day is about the rest of your life, not just the day itself, so don’t get caught up in the detail – reflect on what is important and what represents you as a couple not the latest trend. Expand your options get creative and have fun in the process. Enjoy the ride!
