Sitting Down With a Wedding PlannerThe New Year has arrived and with it all of the possibilities of the future. If you are currently planning your wedding, you can easily use the dawn of a new year to your advantage. With the madness of the holidays finally over and a fresh start before you, now is an excellent chance for you to finish up some of the wedding responsibilities that you put off due to lack of time. Depending on how long you have been planning the wedding, this resolution can be a walk in the park or it can be a big undertaking.

If you have been putting off specific parts of your wedding plan, then now is an excellent chance for you to commit to getting all of the preliminary work squared away. To help you along, here are a few simple ways for you to commit to your resolution of getting through the chaos of planning your wedding.

Know the Count

One of the most challenging aspects of preparing for your big day is finalizing the guest list. You may want to invite a lot of people and it can put you and your partner in an uncomfortable social position if you neglect certain people in your life. The important thing to remember is this is your day; you do not need to feel guilt if you can’t afford to include the people you barely see but feel obligated to include. If you can overcome this obstacle, you can easily get through the rest of the planning.

Remember you do not always know who will be able to attend your wedding. You could invite two hundred people and have fifty people not be able to make it. Since you need to determine venue size and catering in advance, prepare a list of people you feel comfortable inviting late. While you are not always going to be able to fill all of the gaps, it can help you to feel better about empty chairs and extra dinners.


A lot of people delay planning their weddings but create the illusion of being on the right path. Social media makes it easy to look like you’re readying yourself for the big day, when really you are just at home on your phone. Everyone falls prey to the call of Facebook and Instagram, but these traps can prevent you from actually accomplishing anything for your wedding. Forget sharing yet another article about bridezillas and focus on more pressing matters.

While you’re definitely going to want to cool it on the Facebook posts, you should notdisengage from the men and women involved with your wedding. Stay on top of your bridesmaids and groomsmen, but do not be overbearing. Remember, it can be costly to be in a wedding party, and demanding a lot from your friends and close relations can sour the excitement for your event. Be reasonable and work together to create a perfect wedding for everyone involved.


One of the best resolutions you can make for yourself this coming year is to actually enjoy yourself during the process of planning your wedding. Sure, it can be very stressful and you might want to push off certain tasks until the very last second, but try to savor these moments. Remember why you are getting married in the first place, think about the bond you share with your significant other, and turn the planning phase into a memory you can look back on with fondness.

There are many different ways to ready yourself this year for your wedding. Use the New Year to get motivated for the big day and stop putting off everything that needs to get finished.
