Effective decision-making is very important when it comes to planning your wedding. There are a few things every bride must remember when she is having difficulties deciding…. what invitations to choose, whether I should have a live band oppose to a dj, should I include different dress styles for each bridesmaid, or should I have a flower girl? When trying to decide, here are some of the important things to remember:
- It’s important to not procrastinate when it comes to making a decision. You should set a deadline for completely each task and stick to those dates when trying to make a decision. The longer you wait to make a decision, the more likely it is for your favorite vendor to be booked.
- When having difficulties making the decision, try to remember your overall goal. It’s very easy to lose sight of your original wedding ideas once you start reviewing all of your options and getting the advice of others. Don’t get distracted with all of the options.
- If you still find yourself unable to make a choice, try to weigh the benefits and disadvantages for each of your options. For example, creating a pros and cons list is even helpful. Sometimes seeing your options and ideas on paper can help you see things clearly. Visually seeing the pros of choosing one vendor oppose to another helps you make your decision faster. Efficiency is key!
- It’s fine to ask the advice of friends and family, but be very selective in who you ask. Sometimes asking too many people for their opinions can lead to more indecisiveness. Try to only take the recommendations of close family members and friends who know your personal style. We all know that when planning a wedding, everyone loves to share their ideas! Remember how you first envisioned your wedding and try to stick to those original ideas, because it’s very easy to get sidetracked.
Just remember, every bride feels overwhelmed at one point or another, but take it one vendor at a time and things will begin to fall into place. The sooner you start making decisions, the closer you are to accomplishing your dream wedding.
