49 Tips for a Bride Planning Her Own Wedding



  1. Find Out When You Can Start Setting Up

Chat with your venue beforehand and find out when you and your vendors can arrive to start setting up. Give yourself a couple of hours beforehand to make sure that the centerpieces look the way they should and all your wedding details, like the guest book and the table cards, are where they should be.

  1. Keep Your Centerpieces Simple

You might find yourself with an urge to design over-the-top centerpieces for your wedding — ones that are filled with all different kinds of flowers and practically touch the ceiling. But remember that you don’t have to have large centerpieces to give your reception room a wedding-like vibe. Instead, you can keep your centerpieces simple and have scattered flowers throughout the space.

  1. Remember the Smaller Details

When you’re planning out your list of what needs to get done, you’ll start off with a lot of the bigger tasks, like booking your vendors and your venue. But as the wedding planning moves forward, you’ll start to feel overwhelmed with all of the little details and tasks that you need to get done. Plan ahead for these by getting the bigger tasks out of the way and reserving a couple of hours every month to knock the smaller tasks off your to-do list.

  1. Review Every Detail With Your Vendors

Schedule a couple of in-person sessions and conference calls with your vendors before the wedding. Be sure to go over what you expect of them on the day-of the event, including what time they should arrive and what they are responsible for setting up.


  1. Consider Selecting a Theme

If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to planning your wedding or what kind of colors, flowers, or even vibe you want to execute on your big day, considering picking a theme early on to narrow down the selection process.


  1. Go With A Couple of Colors

To help make pulling together the atmosphere and overall look of your wedding a little easier, pick a couple of colors you’d like to weave into the wedding. It’s always best to have at least two colors that complement each other and work well together.


  1.  Brand Your Wedding

Whether it’s a wedding hashtag or a logo, you and your fiancé can create a couple of branding items for your wedding. You can use these pieces on your invitations, on party favors, and on other aspects of your wedding day.

  1. Create a Must-Have List

All throughout planning, there will be things you may not be sure you want or can afford. When you’re starting to make decisions, create a list of you and your fiancé’s must-haves. Be sure to include the things that will make your wedding feel personal and be memorable.

  1. Make Your Wedding Website Guest Friendly

Your wedding guests, and even your family members, will have a lot of questions for you. Avoid getting endless emails, text messages, and voicemails from your guests by putting up a wedding website where they can check out the details of your wedding and even have a day-of itinerary that lets them know where they need to be and when they need to be there.

  1. Schedule Time to Get Your Marriage License

Don’t forget this task the month before your wedding. You may think walking down the aisle and saying your vows seals the marriage deal, but you’ll need to get your marriage license to make everything official.
