49 Tips for a Bride Planning Her Own Wedding



  1. Delegate Tasks to Your Family Members

Ask eager-to-help family members for a hand with tasks along the way. If you’re not sure which tasks to hand over, have them take a look at your to-do list and pick any items that they feel they can execute for you.

  1. Look Into Day-of Support

On the day of the wedding, you may think that you’ll have the time and the capability to make sure that everything is getting set up properly and that all of your vendors are where they need to be. But consider hiring a day-of planner to handle the logistics and execution while you’re busy being the bride.

  1. Have a Month-By-Month Playbook

Instead of making general plans of when you need to complete tasks by, come up with a month-by-month plan of what needs to be completed. It will make you feel more at ease when you check your to-do list.

  1. Transform a Wall into a Style Board

Since you may start to feel like planning a wedding is taking over your life, it’s okay to let it take over your house a little bit. Use a wall or a space to set up a style and vision board, where you can hang different photos that give you inspiration to plan the wedding of your dreams.

  1. Negotiate With Vendors

Whenever you receive a vendor quote, be sure to go back and negotiate with them. It’s good to have a game plan when you’re negotiating. Know the price you want to aim for and what details you’d like them to adjust.


  1. Get a Second Opinion

Be sure to investigate prices from vendors before you sign on the dotted line. If there’s a vendor and a package price that you like, always look for a second opinion. Ask around and see what over vendors are charging before agreeing on a price.

  1. Limit Your Options

When you dive into wedding planning, you’ll start to feel like the decisions and options are endless. Limit your choices by staying focused on the kind of wedding you want to have. Whether it’s big or small, destination or local, choose that early on so that you know what you’re in for when you start making plans.

  1. Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late

Try not to save big decisions or plans for the last minute. You’ll end up spending more money than you should and also be stuck making compromises on things you shouldn’t have to compromise on.

  1. Say Yes to DIY

Save some money along the way by doing some DIY crafts for your wedding. You can go DIY on centerpieces, party favors, and even smaller wedding items by asking your friends and family members to get involved and help you make some of these items.

  1. Say No to Too Much DIY

While DIY wedding crafts can save you money, they still take time, so don’t go overboard on the projects. You’ll find yourself overwhelmed with how many items or centerpieces you have to make, in addition to everything else on your wedding to-do list.
