People keep saying wedding planning is one of the most difficult and stressful times in one’s life – but what is it that makes brides and grooms feel so anxious, in the end? What are the hardest parts about wedding planning?

We have some tips for you – so read on and be prepared for what lies ahead of you as the bride and groom-to-be.

  • Planning a long-distance wedding IS more difficult than planning an event at home. Just think of the logistics involved in this, the number of phone calls and emails, the uncertainty of not knowing exactly who your vendors are… In the end, though, it will be all worth it – but do make sure you are patient, organized and stick to your plan!
  • Speaking of organization, it can be difficult to stay on point even when planning a wedding that’s closer to home. There are a number of factors that influence this: the almost crazy amount of inspiration you can collect from various sources, the lack of experience in planning large events, and even the fact that you sometimes have to rely on other people to “make things happen”. Stay calm, keep your list of to do’s close and don’t panic when things don’t go exactly as planned!
  • Last, but definitely not least, keeping the parents happy may prove to be more difficult than you might have thought. From the fact that they might want to invite more people than you want to the fact that they might want to have a say in terms of menu, colors, wedding theme and even wedding attires, there’s a myriad of issues you will have to tackle with a lot of diplomacy.
