A Wedding and Social MediaThrowing a wedding is a process that comes with a lot of unexpected variables. While you might spend countless hours ironing out each and every detail of your big day, you never know when something might go awry. You may not be able to stop some wedding problems from happening, but you can definitely prepare for an array of issues by taking the time to consider potential headaches in advance. By understanding common wedding problems, you can put a plan into place and keep your wedding from falling prey to avoidable troubles.

Give yourself a moment to look over these commonplace problems you might face while planning your wedding. Use this information to create a plan that will help minimize the odds of trouble brewing on your big day.

Beware Social Media

In the modern day and age, more and more people are using the internet to plan their weddings. There are countless blogs, accounts, and apps available to help people find inspiration. Unfortunately, utilizing social media can also bring some new and unusual wedding problems. Social media allows people and businesses to curate a very specific image. Though you might fall in love with the images provided on the Instagram account of a venue you’re considering for your wedding, you cannot simply base your decision on what you are viewing while scrolling through the feed on your phone.

One of the biggest mistakes couples are making in the current age is assuming the images on a social media account are enough to make a final decision. Though venues go through a lot of trouble to get the best, most appetizing images of their spaces, you have to see what it looks like with your own eyes. Photoshop is a powerful tool and can easily transform a lackluster space into a dynamite venue for the purpose of posting online. Before you sign any contracts, be sure to physically visit the venue, take a walk through, and see for yourself. 

Avoid Wedding Talk

Planning a wedding can feel like a full-time job. What you need to remember, of course, is it isn’t. Allowing your wedding to consume your waking thoughts is a very easy way to fixate on the event and forget the rest of your responsibilities. Many married couples have reported one of the biggest challenges they faced while planning their weddings was finding time to talk about anything besides the upcoming nuptials. You might be excited about tying the knot, but you also need to take time to hang out with your significant other without the wedding talk.

One great tactic to try is a date night. Set aside one night a week during which you and your partner can enjoy each other’s company. The main challenge? Make sure neither one of you brings up your upcoming wedding. It will be difficult at first, especially if you have been incredibly wrapped up in planning. You’ll find removing the discussion of the event from your conversation will help you to connect with your significant other in a more relaxing way, allowing an opportunity to relax and enjoy yourselves.

Accept Reality

Finally, you will do yourself a lot of good by learning to accept what you can’t change. Perhaps you envisioned a reception filled with lilies, only to realize it was outside your budget. No matter what the issue might be, you will do yourself a world of good by learning to roll with the punches. In the end, you won’t feel as stressed and you’ll still be able to throw a beautiful wedding you can feel proud of.

Putting together a wedding can take a lot of time and bring with it a number of frustrations. Avoid these headaches by thinking through potential issues in advance and learning how to minimize your stress.
