Planning a wedding is a BIG task. There are bound to be some stumbles on the planning road that leads to the alter. While there are many mistakes that you can make in the process of pulling the big day together, we’ve chosen to highlight three big mistakes that we see on a regular basis.
- Wedding Mistake #1
— You’ve FINALLY gotten the ring and you’re over the moon with excitement! Don’t make the mistake of sharing all of the details of your wedding day with your co-workers. Many brides plan their weddings while at work, so it’s natural to chat with your co-workers about your ideas. Maybe you ask their opinions on your wedding colors. Or maybe you ask for input on your wedding gown choices. The mistake is that you are slowly pulling them into your wedding planning world, which is fine IF you plan to invite them all to the wedding.
These days, brides are looking to save money wherever they can and that usually starts with the guest list. Once you’ve gotten your co-workers emotionally involved in your wedding planning process, you can expect to hear this: Your wedding is going to be beautiful! I can’t wait to get my invitation!
This is when reality sets in. You weren’t planning on inviting your co-workers to your wedding. Perhaps you are only considering inviting your boss….maybe. But definitely not allllllll of the co-workers you’ve been involving in your various decisions.
While it may be difficult, refrain from dragging your co-workers into your wedding planning world. They’re going to expect an invite and you won’t want to have that uncomfortable convo with them about how you’re not inviting co-workers.
