Everybody knows that planning a wedding is not easy – not at all, actually. And yet, with attention to detail and dedication, you can really pull off an amazing event everyone will love. What are the mistakes to avoid when planning this special day, though? Here are some of the most important ones:

· Spending too much on details that will quickly add up. Sure, it may not seem that $2 for a small item will break the bank – but when you’ve got 200 of those items (and a wide range of them too), the spending can quickly add up and push your budget over the top. Pay attention to your spending, so that you don’t have to face unpleasant surprises later on.

· Remember to consider the full cost of your outfits. Sure, the dress will come for a price – but aside from that, you should also consider the alterations, the accessories, the shoes and even the hairstyle and makeup. Taking all of these issues into account from the very beginning will help you create a budget that’s far more realistic and less likely to disappoint you in any way.

· Save money on the Thank You gift. Your parents and your wedding party deserve the very best. These wonderful people have been with you throughout the entire wedding planning process, offering you their support from so many points of view! Therefore, they deserve gifts that are meaningful and unique – but that doesn’t have to mean you must overspend on these attentions. In fact, starting the search early and creating a clear budget for the Thank You gifts will be the best option for everyone – both for you and for your VIPs too.
