Announcing the engagement too soon.
Don’t. Just don’t. Take the time to personally gather your family from both sides as well as your best friends to let them know first before you announce it out to the rest of the world. This is something that they will really be able to appreciate and something that will help make the engagement and the wedding feel so much more special when it all comes down to it. Get with your North Wales wedding photographer to shoot photos for your save the date cards.
Ruling out the need for a wedding planner.
A wedding planner can be your initial and main touch point out to the rest of the wedding suppliers and vendors that you need to tap into. Suffice it to say, he or she will make your life as a bride so much easier and have you end up with less things to worry about. You need to make sure that this is the type of thing that you are able to consider even if it does end up with you spending a little bit of extra on the side. You should know right off the bat that this is the type of money that is actually well spent and you should go ahead with hiring one if you can afford to do so in the first place.
Including the registry info on the invites.
This is a tacky move and will leave most of your guests raising their eyebrows. Although it would be nice to have everything that you have scanned out for the wedding gift registry, including this in the actual wedding invitations is a low move and not the type of thing that you would want to do. If you would like to make sure that they get to access it, then you should have the gift registry store reach out to them or you should have that up in your page for the wedding. Don’t include that in the main wedding invitations or you might be sending the message across that you are only inviting them to your main wedding day because you are keen on what they have to give you after the fact. Try to avoid this as much as possible and you should be pretty good to go. You can even ask your North Wales wedding photographer if he can create a photography registry for you.
Having a social media gag order.
People don’t like brides who are acting way too overbearing or who are being way over the top when it comes to the demands that she is asking from her guests for the wedding. They are there to support you and to make sure that you get to end up with all of the things that you could ever want or dream of when you are planning out your main wedding game. Although it would turn out to be fairly understandable for you to request your guests not to post anything on social media during the day of the wedding itself, it would turn out to be a little too much if you take things on that way long after that. Give them the freedom to post on their own social media pages after the fact. You want them to remember you and how great your wedding is, not your social media ban.
