Does it ever feel like wedding planning is just all about checklists?
Getting this done by this time. Or hiring these vendors. Or putting together these decor items.
You have all these different things you need to do. And let’s face it, you’re kinda stressed.
Because you only have so much time whether that’s a year or 9 months or 4 months.
And so you’re just trying to check those things off your list.
The more you check off, the better you feel, right?!
And there’s nothing wrong with checking things off a list. I love that feeling too!
But, there’s more to wedding planning than just getting things done.
Because planning a stress free wedding isn’t just about hiring a photographer or a DJ.
It’s about making sure you’ve planned everything out so that the vendor you hire or the item you’re creating or the idea you’re thinking about, actually works.
You need to make sure that things will actually work out on the wedding day.
That’s how you ensure that you have a smooth sailing, stress free wedding day.
Because having a super cool fun idea is great! But, if it won’t work on your wedding day, what are you going to do?
If the weather ruins all your best laid plans, what are you going to do? If guests show up to the wrong place, what are you going to do?
The secret to a stress free wedding is something no one ever talks about… It’s covering your wedding ass.
The truth is a that a lot of what goes into planning a successful wedding is about covering your ass.
Because you have to think about all the possibilities. All the potential problems.
You have to make sure you’re covered.
Why is this important?
Because anything can happen at a wedding.
The caterer could forget they were supposed to supply ice. A piece of decor could keep falling over. Or your cousin could bring her kids that weren’t invited.
There is so much that can go astray at a wedding.
So, when you’re planning you need to always remember to cover your wedding ass.
So you might be thinking, what does that mean?
It means having extras of things.
It means taking the time to have the final call to review everything with each of your vendors.
And it means having a plan B for almost everything.
It also means having someone who can help you on the wedding day.
Because you can plan and cover your ass. You can plan and cover your ass. But, come your wedding day, you do not want to be worried about fixing things.
You can make the plan B and have all the pieces ready. But you don’t want to the be one who has to actually enact plan B.
Covering your wedding ass is about thinking through the potential problems, coming up with your plan and then handing that plan to someone else.
That way not only have you tested things and considered the possibilities, you also have someone to handle it if needed.
Which means you can have a stress free wedding day.
Which is what you want and what you need to be able to enjoy every moment.
