5 Sanity Saving Wedding Planning Tips!

I found this great article through my friend Michael.

If you are planning a wedding, you’ve already heard the two key tips: stay organized and don’t panic. While these are both nice starting points, they are not going to help you through the next year of phone calls, meetings, food samplings, location visits, travel arrangements, and much more.

Food, Photography, or Location

Regardless of the economy, weddings can be very expensive and a well-thought-out budget is a key to long-term sanity. As with any budget, you have to pick and choose what is most important to you and where you will spend the most money. The most common big-ticket items are:

1. Food
2. Photography
3. Location(s)

My advice? Splurge on your photography! Good food doesn’t have to be expensive and almost any location can be special. Your memories of the day will be captured in the images your photographer takes—make sure they are great ones. If you need to redirect some of your budget to cover photography costs, recruit friends and family to help with food preparation, favors, and decorations. You’ll save money and make the day all the more memorable for everyone.
