As a leading event videographer, Bloomsbury Films have attended hundreds of weddings both locally and abroad. To help couples prevent disappointment or problems, they outline the Top Wedding Planning Pitfalls to Avoid.
Going Overboard with the Wedding Party
Bloomsbury has witnessed a number of problems arising from a couple inviting too many people to be part of their core wedding party. While it might seem tricky choosing who will be bridesmaids and groomsmen when couple has a large group of friends, a wedding party that contains twelve bridesmaids and twelve groomsmen will cause more issues than there should be, such as the extra costs of their outfits, bouquets, boutonnieres and thank-you gifts, as well as the stress of getting all of them dressed to perfection on the Big Day.
Not Scheduling Time for the Wedding Party to Eat
This point is easy to overlook, particularly on the day of the wedding when it’s all go, but Bloomsbury advise that ensuring their wedding party are well fed is key. They have seem disastrous weddings as a result of bridesmaids and groomsmen forgetting to eat – from drunk-and-disorderly problems such as arguments, ripped clothing and dishevelled hair or makeup, to nasty arguments that sour the day’s festivities.
Choosing Unsuitable Music
It’s important to choose wedding party music that will not have guests feeling out of place and uncomfortable, particularly if you will be having a large number of guests that are aged forty and over – their mood will take a turn for the worst if they have to listen to the latest Hip Hop or Pop songs for hours. Bloomsbury suggests couples opt mostly for classics that everyone will enjoy, while couples can play their favourite music to their hearts content during their Honeymoon.
Forgetting Guest Courtesy
Always give guests enough notice in advance, since while they might be keen to attend the wedding, they will naturally have a number of responsibilities to juggle. Secondly, for guests that are not local to the wedding location, it’s a good idea to put together a pack to make their lives easier, such as a map with clear direction, key local amenities such as service stations to fill up, restaurants and perhaps some picturesque or interesting places to explore.
Director of Bloomsbury Films, Andrew Cussens, concluded: “The fact that the points we mention seem insignificant compared to the millions of larger tasks that need to be planned for is the reason they are often overlooked. We hope couples keep these Top Wedding Planning Pitfalls to Avoid in mind however, since we have seen major problems arise on the Big Day from neglecting them. A final tip we can offer is that once the wedding day arrives, couples need to take deep breaths and resolve to enjoy themselves no matter what niggles occur – laughter and happiness is what makes for the best wedding events even when everything doesn’t go as expected.”
