Planning for a wedding is hard work. So, if you thought all that stress you went through with the proposal was bad, you’ve got plenty more in store! However, getting ready for your special day doesn’t have to be a nightmare. It should be an amazing experience, however there are a few things that can trip you up along the way. We’ve helped countless couples with wedding rings in Melbourne, and all other jewellery for their big day. So, here’s a few common traps people fall into and how to avoid them. Going over your budget Back in the day, the cost of your wedding was usually handled by the parents. That’s a tradition which seems to be going out the door, so you’ll need to carefully budget for yourself. Even if you’re lucky enough to have others paying for all or some of your wedding expenses, you still need to budget. Many people focus too much on the per-head cost of their wedding reception, and forget the other expenses. Venue hire is just one part of the puzzle. You’ve got dresses, suits, jewellery, decorations, photographers, videographers, entertainment. The list goes on and on. So, before you get too excited, make a comprehensive list of every expense, and budget accordingly. Getting the wrong wedding rings in Melbourne You’d think that people always end up with the wedding rings they want. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. They either don’t visit enough jewellers, and therefore settle for second best. Or, in some cases they don’t budget enough and can’t afford the wedding rings in Melbourne they really desired. Communication is important to get wedding rings you’re both happy with. They’re a symbol of your love and commitment, so put some thought into the design, style and budget. Custom wedding rings in Melbourne are a great idea, because they’re truly personal. Too many people involved in planning It’s great to get some help with your wedding planning. But remember, it’s your day, not everybody else’s. Many couples struggle to say no, especially when finalising your guest list. Don’t feel pressured into inviting people you don’t want there or making changes you don’t agree with. It’s your day, so make sure you stay in control of planning. Ordering jewellery and clothing too late Imagine getting close to your wedding day, and the dress isn’t ready? It’s a horrible thought. What if your wedding rings aren’t made in time? These sorts of nightmares can completely ruin your day, so get onto them early. Organising clothing and jewellery in advance is the best way to avoid any problems.
