3 Things Your friends will tell you about wedding planning that aren’t true
- Don’t hire a wedding planner it’s only expensive and not worth it. This is absolutely not true! Hiring a wedding planner can Actually be helpful for your budget. A wedding planner knows all the ins and outs and has so many useful connections within the industry. A wedding planner will also help you find the best deals, the best vendors for you and they can help you cut the costs.
- Don’t have an outdoor wedding in Sweden it will rain. While it rains sometimes during the summer in Sweden, I don’t think you should get discouraged about having an outdoor ceremony just because of the weather. If you feel that’s what you want, go for it. It might be good though to have a backup plan though and it could be such an easy thing as planning the outdoor ceremony under a large tree or a canopy. Don’t let the weather and your friends dissuade you from your dream wedding.
- You must have an open bar. Well is that the best way to spend the budget or no? And to have really drunk guests early in the day. I think this is one of the best ways also to cut your costs. Sure, include wine to dinner and champagne to the appetizers, but hey having an open bar is going to cost you a fortune. And is it really that important that every guest can get really drunk for free? I’d say skip the open bar but have an option to purchase drinks for those who want to.
Those are the three things your friends will tell you about wedding planning that isn’t true. Even more and better information about wedding planning, why not hire a wedding planner? I think it’s the most beneficial thing you can do for your wedding. And of course, hire me as your photographer 😉
Happy planning, Isabelle
