Common Wedding Planning Mistakes

Published on May 10th, 2019

The last thing that you want to happen on your big day is to make a mistake that could have been avoided. While many people only have one wedding throughout their lifetime, it is important to turn to professionals with years of experience in the wedding industry to help minimize your chances of making a mistake. From your wedding ceremony to your wedding reception in the Chicago suburbs, here are some tips that our team at Carriage Greens Country Club has learned throughout our years.

Assuming 10 Percent of Invited Guests Will RSVP ‘No’

There is a myth in the wedding world that 10 percent of the people that you invite will not be at your wedding. This may be the case for some people, but it is not something that you should assume. Don’t invite more guests than your venue allows only to have 95 percent of invited people say “yes!” Craft your guest list around the capacity of your venue and you will ultimately feel peace of mind regardless of what happens.

Sending Save-the-Dates on a Whim

When you first get engaged, sparks will be flying and you will feel excited to get a date on the calendar as soon as possible. It’s tempting to jump at the first date that works with your schedule but think about your guests as well. Your wedding will be nothing without the right group of people by your side! Make sure that you have picked out a venue that is available the day that you need it to be and only send save-the-dates when things are final.

Not Hiring a Wedding Videographer

Cutting back in some areas allows you to spend more on others. Cutting back on hiring a wedding videographer is not something you want to do! This video will be something that you and your loved ones can enjoy for years to come.

Being Too Stressed or Too Chill

It’s important that both your wedding and wedding reception in the Chicago suburbs turn out exactly the way you imagined it. However, being either too stressed or too chill will quickly backfire and result in your special day not unfolding the way you want it to. Know when to loosen the reigns and when to crack down on what you want.
