5 Tips For New Brides (Things Every Bride Should Know!)

< Back to blog

Posted: 22nd Sep 2014

When it comes to your special day, there’s hundreds if not thousands of things going through a bride’s mind. Let’s face it, most of us have been waiting our entire life for this one special moment and we want everything to be absolutely perfect.

But with that said, brides often become overwhelmed with focusing on getting the venue setup, food, dresses, wedding accessories, and the hundreds of other small details that go into a wedding. We’ve put together 5 fantastic tips for new brides that every bride should know to make their life a little bit easier:

DON’T FEEL OBLIGATED TO TAKE ADVICE FROM OTHERS When your wedding comes around, it seems as if people just appear out of no where with tons of pieces of advice and suggestions for your big day. Don’t feel obligated to appease these people and remember, it’s your big day!

TRY AND SAVE MONEY WHENEVER POSSIBLE It’s amazing how fast wedding items and services can add up. Many weddings can easily top $50,000 these days, and that’s for a small wedding! The best advice we can offer on this is to splurge on the things that are really important to you but try and save a little whenever you can. There’s tons of websites that offer wedding accessories, tiaras, veils, place settings, and other wedding accessories at prices much lower than local brick & mortar stores, and this can be a fantastic way to save several thousand dollars on your wedding.

TAKE YOUR TIME IN PLANNING YOUR WEDDING It’s important to really take your time in planning your wedding. Don’t just fall in love with the first wedding dress you see, the first location you visit, or the first veil you try on. If you jump the gun on these elements, you’ll be second guessing yourself later. Spend as much time as you need in really planning your wedding and it will help alleviate the stress down the road.

NEVER GO INTO A WEDDING ALONE With all the details involved, it’s important to have a good support group to assist you with your wedding. Whether it’s family, friends, or online support groups like those found on sites like Wedding Wire or The Knot, it’s important to have a strong group around you to help you through the wedding planning. It helps even more if you have people around you who have been through weddings recently and know the largest challenges to help with.

DON’T GET TOO CAUGHT UP IN ALL THE DETAILS Our last tip may sound a little against everything else we’ve said, but it’s important to remember the purpose of your wedding day and not get caught up in the little details. This is the day you and the love of your life are entering into a new chapter of your lives, and it’s important to remember that and cherish the moment. No one is going to notice the little wrinkle in the table cloth or the missing candle on one of the tables. Focus on the true meaning of your wedding and you’re assured to have a fantastic day full of memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
