At Wishhper, we help couples plan, organize, and carry out their weddings. It's not surprising that we've dealt with lots of unexpected situation, and that we have a ton of advice for anybody who is putting on a wedding. Here are 6 of our top tips for ensuring that your wedding day turns out perfectly, and that you avoid the regrets that we've heard often in the business.
Hire a videographer. Not hiring a videographer is the most repeated regret we hear. Photographs are great, but they only tell a part of the story. Video can capture the wedding day in a unique way that you will treasure for the rest of your life.
Splurge on a photographer. Along with video, wedding photos will be what’s left of your wedding after the big day is over. However, taking good wedding photos is a practiced craft, and there’s a wide variety in the skill of different photographers. There won’t be a second chance to capture those magical moments, so it makes sense to get a professional, fantastic photographer.
Hire a wedding coordinator. Ok, we are a little biased here, but this was a common complaint of many couples. Weddings can be incredibly exciting but also overwhelming, and many people get so stressed out about managing the wedding that they fail to enjoy the experience. Hiring a wedding coordinator ensures that you don’t fall into this trap, and that you can focus on what’s really important.
Don't forget to eat. With all the running around and all the commotion, you might forget until late into your wedding day. This can cause your energy to crash suddenly, and it might also spell trouble when it comes time to have a few drinks at the celebration.
Book entertainment for kids. Weddings that have a larger number of kids can get out of control if the kids get bored, rowdy, or cranky. It's a good idea to plan for this, and to book some kid entertainment. This way, the kids won’t disrupt the party for the adults, and their parents can enjoy themselves more.
Embrace your nervousness. It’s perfectly normal to feel nervous during your wedding day, and telling yourself to calm down might only make things get out of control. Instead, simply recognize that the butterflies you are feeling are excitement over the amazing day you are about to have, and start enjoying this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
