Q: So, I’m stuck. I’m working on my wedding flowers and I don’t know what to do. I really want this super full centerpiece because I think it’s just going to look amazing. But it’s expensive. It’s more than I wanted to spend. There is a second option which is smaller and fits my budget much better. It’s still nice, but just isn’t as full as I would like it to be. I’m having a hard time making a decision especially when I imagine what the tables will look like. And what my guests will think. Help! What should I do?
This is such a great question! Why? Because EVERY couple will face this type of situation at least once in their planning.
It might not be about flowers specifically, but at some point you’ll get stuck between two options (or more).
And you’ll have to make a choice. A choice between something you like more and something more budget friendly.
The choice can feel like a battle.
A battle between what you want and what your wallet can handle. Which, to be honest, unless you have unlimited funds, planning a wedding can feel like a constant battle.
Where you don’t always feel like a winner.
Sometimes the choice is easy in which case there is no battle. But, inevitably you’ll face a hard situation. One where the choice is not easy.
Perhaps it’s about the bar and what to offer. Maybe it’s about whether you can serve both cake and desserts. Or maybe it’s about having a photobooth.
Whatever your hard situation is, I want you to always remember this one important wedding tip.
No one will know what the options were.
No one will know what could have been. What you could have chosen.
They will never know that you had two centerpiece options and you went with the smaller one…
Your guests will never know that you could have served lobster and instead went with cod…
They will never know that you were considering hiring a live musician…
No one will know which chair you could have chosen…
No one will know.
Which means, your decisions are not about what your guests will think. But, what you care about.
If you need to save some money in an area, then do it. If something costs a little more but is worth it to you, go for it.
No one will know what you could have chosen or how you spend your money. Don’t base your decision on what you think others would like more.
Instead, go with what makes sense for you and the wedding you’re looking to create. And when you do it that way, the battle becomes a lot easier.
Remember this important wedding tip, no one will know what the options were.
So, don’t stress out about it.
Make the right choice for you and what’s important to you and you’ll always win.
