This is one of the biggest milestones in your life and it’s totally understandable that you want to retain control of the planning and execution process. That being said, you need to understand that seeking help from others is a much better way than trying to do everything on your own. There are plenty of resources that we can utilize ranging from people close to us to professional planners. We understand that you might not be comfortable with delegating, so we’ve taken the liberty of providing you with some tips to help you get started:
Make a List of Your Priorities
Learning how to prioritize becomes very apparent when you’re planning your wedding. You can’t do everything on your own and you really shouldn’t. After all, this is about enjoying the process before the big day, not having a meltdown. Choose your priorities with your partner and delegate the remaining tasks to reliable family and friends. For example, if you’re particular about the catering on your big day then don’t delegate this task to others. However, if you don’t care too much about the floral arrangement you can always let your friends or family members handle this job instead. They don’t need to make the final call but rather to curate a list of suggestions for you to approve.
Count On A Wedding Planner
The process of planning and managing your own wedding can be overwhelming and that’s why there is a thriving wedding industry. Rather than depend on your limited amount of experience with wedding planning and organizing, it makes sense to lean on the expertise of established wedding planners and coordinators for your own special day.
While you will spend more on a planner they may also be able to help save you money rather than stumbling around blindly. They’ll be able to help you handle tasks that you would not have time to do on your own and the annoying ones that you would rather not handle. If you’ve found the right people to help, you’ll also be able to leverage on their little black book of trusted vendors that they use on a regular basis.
Count on Your Loved Ones
Leverage your own strengths and bond with family members and friends to make use of their gifts and abilities. Don’t leave them to handle everything, but rather allow them to come up with recommendations to be shared with you. The key to taking away from all this is that although you’re kept in the loop throughout the entire process, you’ll be able to truly and effectively make use of those around you to help you accomplish tasks which you are just not as good at handling. Now, isn’t that a reality worth considering?
Ask Your Friends for Ideas
You probably have the best ideas for your wedding because you know exactly what your taste but you can always improve by gathering a small group of people whose opinions you trust and using them as a sounding board to discuss the various ideas and options. In this case, you’ll be leveraging on other people’s gifts and talents, and you’ll be surprised at just how inspired you can be in terms of preparing for your wedding. Once you’ve narrowed down the options you’re looking to execute, you can then proceed to delegate them out to people whom you know are suited to handling it. Of course, choosing the right person at this stage will definitely make all the difference.
Plan The Transportation
Wedding transportation is often broken into two categories: the wedding party and the guests. The wedding party might want a limousine for their photos or if you have a particularly large group you may want a party bus. Guests may best be served by renting a bus and we can help with that as well.
Don’t Forget The Bachelor Party or Bachelorette Party!
You don’t have to leave Edmonton have a memorable bachelor or bachelorette party. That being said, if you don’t plan anything and end up waiting in line and paying cover charge in Edmonton you will probably feel pretty bad. Similarly, if you don’t book a limo or party bus cabs can add up very quick and the last thing you want is to split everyone up. When you book a Privilege Parties VIP Experience you can get a VIP experience with no-line, no-cover, your own personal party host for the night, our party planning expertise and door to door limousine or party bus service from the start to the end!
