While planning a wedding can be a lot of fun (after all, it should be one of the best days of your entire life!), it can also generate a lot of stress both financially and emotionally. This stress will affect you as well as your future spouse, and it can be difficult to prevent or ignore.
Whether you’re in the throes of planning your own wedding currently, helping a friend or family member plan theirs, or you plan to get engaged in the near future and are just trying to get ahead of things, this list is for you! Here are 3 tips for planning the perfect wedding.
Hire A Wedding Videographer
Hiring a videographer for your wedding in addition to a regular wedding photographer is a great choice that you won’t regret! Videos are a great thing to be able to look back on your special day because in many ways they’ll help you to relive moments that are all a blur! Your wedding will be such a busy day and it will fly on by, so there may be a lot you don’t remember.

Photos are important and priceless, but a video is also a wonderful way to hold onto memories that you and your spouse are going to cherish for years to come. Plus, you can make a fun tradition out of it by watching it together every year on your anniversary!
Involve Your Fiancé As Much As Possible
Planning a wedding involves a lot of costs and a lot of tiny decisions which all make one big day come together. These choices may seem like they don’t matter much individually, and it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that this day is for both you and your fiancé.
Remember to involve them as much as possible, even if they want to leave all the decision-making up to you! Delegate small tasks to them to take things off your plate and use it as a way to spend quality time together and bond with one another before you get married as well.
Keep It Small
Even if you want a larger-than-average wedding, try to remember when planning that this day is really about celebrating the love between your future spouse and yourself, and ask yourself how many other people you really want to involve in that. A good rule of thumb is to only invite people you have spoken to or seen within the last year.
There’s no reason to invite people you haven’t heard from in years to such a special event! Food, favors, venues, music… Weddings generate a lot of costs and it adds up quickly. This is all the more reason to only include people who are really important to you on your guest list.
You may feel like there’s a lot of pressure on you to plan the perfect wedding, but just try to relax and remember the reason you’re here in the first place! Hopefully, this list can help.
