Wedding planning can become a financial strain to many couples.  But through the engagement process, the idea is to make smart budgetary decisions.  This will certainly alleviate one of the biggest wedding planning problems...STRESS.  Check out 10 simple mistakes to avoid making when planning your wedding:

  1. Asking unreliable family members or friends to take on wedding day tasks only to have them botched.

  2. Planning to caterer the wedding and/or bake the wedding cake yourself.

  3. Ordering your wedding gown online from a non-reputable site.

  4. Hiring the first vendor you visit instead of researching additional options.

  5. Not asking for referrals or checking reviews.

  6. Waiting too long to book the ceremony and/or reception sites and vendors.

  7. Not reading contracts thoroughly and not getting the “promises” in writing.

  8. Making decisions in hast or out of frustration.

  9. Planning too elaborate a wedding for the amount of preparation time or finances.

  10. Being unorganized.
